NEW TEAMS

It was agreed that we would continue to look for additional teams for this season, provided they would commit and were of a similar quality to other teams in the league. 


SIFL 2nd DIVISION
It was also suggested that the teams who have dropped out be asked if they would create a 2nd League ( affiliated to the SIFL ) as a way to keep them interested and to hopefully bring them back into the fold if and when they are ready. I said I would contact the teams regarding this.


SIFL LEAGUE REPRESENTATIVES:
Saints – Ian and Ben
Raiders – Luke
Nam an – Huy Do
Japan – Kenjiro and Blessy
Olympique – Mika
Hotshots  – Leo
Sporting – Mark
FCFC – Hung

SIFL ROLES:
Hung – Finances
Leo – Website / IT
Ian – Waiver and Registrations
Mark – Fixtures and schedules


SIFL RULES:
Everyone agreed that the current rules are fine and don’t need changing. I will send these out again soon, so familiarise yourself with them. Especially the rules regarding game POSTPONEMENTS and the 10 POINT DISCIPLINE rule.


FINANCES:
It was agreed that all teams have no issues with the $200 season registration. This must be paid to Hung before the 7 a side cup.

All teams must pay their FINES ( yellow + red cards ) to Hung before the 7 a side cup or they will not be allowed to join.

FIXTURES:
Mark volunteered to create the fixtures for the SIFL.
Hung announced that we may have issues with Friday night bookings at CVA. Yet two slots on Saturdays and Sundays are not a problem.
Kenjiro mentioned Japan FC can still only play on Sundays.
Leo and Hotshots may still also need to play evening fixtures.


SIFL PRE SEASON 7 A SIDE CUP: SATURDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER.

All teams agreed this was a good event. Hung will check CVA and TRAN THAI availability as well as allowing us to have GAME ON provide food and drink.
The league will cover FOOD and DRINK for all players at the cup.
Trophies won from last season will be handed to YBA and individual winners.

Date for 7 a side cup is saturday 16th september. SIFL teams ONLY and you are allowed to enter more than one team. Start preparing now so we can do the fixtures.

SIFL 11 A SIDE CUP:
It was agreed that this season we would have an 11 a side cup running throughout the season.

The way this would work is ( dependent on how many teams we have ) by having the teams split into TWO GROUPS. Teams would play each other once to decide who finishes where. The top two teams from each group play each other in a knockout to decide who progresses to the Cup Final. Bottom two teams do the same to decides who progresses into the Plate Final.


TROPHIES
This gives the opportunity for 4 winnable trophies this season. League, 7 a side, 11 a side Cup and Plate.

It was agreed that disciplinary actions would be separate for the league and cup ( IE – if you are red carded in the Cup – you miss the next cup game, not a league game )

It was agreed that the team that wins the League is presented with the trophy and medals at the pitch


STATISTICS:
It was agreed that ALL stats now be uploaded onto the SIFL website. Leo will send out an email with a demonstration on how to do this. The google drive will become defunct and no longer used.

ALL teams MUST send me their top goalscorers from last season so we can award this trophy at the cup.


REPORTER:
Hung and myself will be following this up to ensure that ALL SIFL games are recorded and highlights uploaded to the website.


WAIVERS:
All new players must submit waivers to Ian. As agreed, any players registered after the 1st game of the season must pay 100K to Hung. This will go towards reporter fees etc.


OTHERS:

The SIFL website needs to be utilised more often – teams need to contribute pictures, match reports etc.
Awareness of the SIFL needs to be raised to encourage more players / teams.
Ian mentioned GAME ON would be willing to offer 10% discounts to all league teams
Ian also mentioned a contact in Thailand who could perhaps get famous footballers to join in SIFL events.
Mark has already sent me a draft of the SIFL fixtures! Excitement levels are rising and I must say I can’t wait for the season to start!

Thanks again to everyone – lets keep working together and make this season one to remember for all players, managers, sponsors and teams!

Best regards,

SIF Chairman @Luke
