Match Day Run Sheet

The Match Day Run Sheet must be prepared by the Match Commissioner and submitted to the tournament office at least two days before the match.

Below you can download a Match Day Run Sheet template, but its timings are only intended to be indicative. As Match Commissioner you are in charge of adapting this template to create a run sheet for each match. In doing so, you’ll need to take the following factors into account:

  • Distance between the end of the tunnel and the final position of the teams for the protocol
  • Duration of the anthems
  • Cultural rituals.

Copies of the Match Day Run Sheet must be provided by the Match Commissioner to the Team Managers at their Captain’s Run.
