Bliga (11s)

Men's & Women's Competition.

Registration (see bottom of page for guide)

No player will be eligible to play in a match for competition points without registering. Registration is completed here:

Following the first round, players need to be registered at least 48 hours prior to the weeks fixture they wish to play in.  Once players are registered they will receive their match shirt. Uniforms are preordered, so only some sizes may be available. An additional shirt order may occur if shirt availability runs too low.

Any side that plays an unregistered player will be docked 3pts. That player will not be eligible for the following weeks fixture.

League format

Kick off for fixtures will be 6.15pm and 7.45 pm. Teams need to be ready to kick off AT THIS TIME. Sides need a minimum of 7 players to begin a game. If a side does not have 7 players ready to go at kick off time a forfeit may occur. If neither side is ready, game time will be reduced and points penalties may occur. The first game will finish by 7.40 at the latest.

Game times will consist of 2 x 35minute halves. The game will be played as per FIFA’s laws of the game with some minor amendments such as interchange.

Each team will play each other 4 times during the course of the season. The team finishing top of the league at the end of the final round will be deemed the Champions. In the result of a points tie, goal difference will decide the champion, followed by the most goals scored, followed by the best head to head record.

Match Cards will be posted to the BSA website as means of recording results. Please ensure they are filled out with full players names and each player participating. Other sides will scrutinise your card.

A two week knock out cup competition will close the season. A random draw will dictate the opening fixtures and the winner of each will go into the final. If results are tied at the end of the game, injury time will be played and if the scores are still tied, then penalties will decide the winner. Winners are grinners and get a medal at the awards night.

The Men’s pitch is marked at across the field at the airport end.

The ladies pitches are the two closest to the carpark.

Red Cards/ Yellow Cards

A straight red card means a minimum 2 weeks. A red from two yellows a minimum of 1.

3 yellows within a consecutive 4 game period will result in 1 weeks suspension.

Game night.

Team sheet must be completed and provided to the referee five minutes prior to kick off (6.10pm for early game and 7.35pm for the late game.

Shin pads are compulsory.

Each team from the early fixture is required to set up a goal, corner flags and yellow halfway posts (yellows are placed 1m back from halfway line). Posts are in the under side compartment of the trailer.

Teams involved in the late fixture are required to pack away. Each goal needs to be placed off the grassed areas when packing up, and locked to the post USING THE BSA LOCK. The BSA lock is marked with “THE BSA ONE”.

Each goal cost $2,000+. Ease them to the ground, don’t drop them.


Fairest and Best and Leading Goal Scorer (golden boot) are awarded at the end of the season. If match cards are not completed clearly, players may miss out on points or having goals accredited. Each team nominates a cub champion. It should not be awarded to dickheads.


Each team must nominate a captain, and vice captain. These captains are responsible for passing on information to the team, and can provide feedback on the competition from teammates.

A group consisting of captains, referees and the competition coordinator will ensure the competition runs smoothly and everyone is aware of what is happening.

Email correspondence is the preferred means of official communication.


Our referees are qualified, but not professional. Just remember they may make mistakes - but they will likely make less than the players.

Each team must appoint a referee’s assistant to officiate in the game either following or prior to their fixture.

Senior players need to take responsibility to run the line. Under 18 players are to be used in this role as a last resort only.

Should a team fail to provide a referee’s assistant or put forward a player that is not deemed competent by the referee they can be docked 3pts.

First Aid
