Rules for playing

The Terms of Use for playing include acceptance of the rules. The Rules apply to everyone using These rules are implemented to prevent cheating, to provide an enjoyable experience and to make the game fair for all our users.

Please take your time to read through the rules carefully. Moderators expect you to follow them and ignorance is not a valid excuse should you be caught cheating or abusing the game in any way. If you have any questions about the rules, please contact a Moderator. You will find a list of Moderators here.


Moderators are defined as Boss (BOSS), Gamemaster (GM), Moderator (MOD) or ADV (Advisor).

One account per user

Multiple accounts per user are strictly forbidden. You are permitted to register only once. If you attempt to register more than once or persist in creating multiple accounts, we will take action against your account and may contact your ISP.

The only exception to this rule is for those Subscribers who have been given permission to run a Second Account. Further details can be found on the Subscribers section of the Community Forums.


The managers of linked accounts are forbidden from bidding on the Transfer Market for the same player.


You should report bugs or temporary problems to a moderator as soon as possible after discovery.

Abusing known or unknown bugs or temporary problems with our servers is not permitted under any circumstances. Any manager caught cheating or exploiting the game in any way is very likely to be suspended or banned from playing

Advertising of other products

It is strictly forbidden to advertise products from other companies anywhere in the game. All such posts or messages will be removed immediately and a community ban could be enforced.


Managers are not allowed to flood or spam within the community. Flooding and spamming is when you keep posting the same or pointless messages over and over, within a short period of time. A community ban could also be enforced.

Destruction of clubs

Managers are not allowed to destroy Clubs. Examples of such behaviour would be to re-sign all players with too high contracts, in order to destroy the economy of a club, to buy poor players at too high prices while selling good players at too low prices, or to be selling off the best players of a team without good reason, etc. Any such behaviour will be investigated and may be construed as cheating. If you suspect another manager of club destruction, please report it to a Moderator as soon as possible and the issue will be addressed.
