Before the match

How do I join a match?You can take a place in a match by simply clicking on the button ‘Play’. Once enrolled, the roster page will be updated with your Player Card and you will see the match listed in your schedule.
How can I withdraw from a match?To leave the match click on ‘Leave the match’ in the roster page.
Can I bring to a match a friend who is not a member of Fubles?You can bring to a match friends who are not yet Fubles users. Once they have signed up to Fubles you will become their agent and manage their subscriptions with no limitations.
How do I get confirmation that the roster is complete?When all the places in a match have been taken the roster is completed and fubles sends a confirmation e-mail to all the participants
If the roster is not complete, do I have to wait until the last second?If the roster is not completed, Fubles does not record the match as played. Always contact the organiser for confirmation and remember that you can join a match up to 1 hour before the kick off.
What happens if I do not show up for a match?If you don't show up, you cause inconvenience to the other participants. The no-show is the worst crime you can commit in Fubles. Therefore the system allows reporting and identifying unreliable users when giving rates.
During the match
What time should I show up for the match?Showing up at the match on time is very appreciated and helps you meet other participants and allows you to fully exploit the available time to play. Always keep the match owner's requests in mind and remember that the ratings reflect the skills as well as the reliability of a player.
How do I find the sports centre?In the roster page you will always find the address of the sport centre.
What jersey should I wear?The teams in the roster page always have two colours, white or black. Remember the colour of the team that you have chosen to play with!
How should I behave on the field?Fubles matches are not governed by referees or bouncers. The good performance of a match relies on the intelligence of its participants: Be sporting and loyal, respect your teammates and opponents and remember that the ratings you receive often reflect the impression you gave about your style and conduct of play.
How do I pay my fee?The organiser, who has booked the pitch is responsible for paying the sports center and collect the fees from all the partecipants.
After the match
What happens after the match?After the match Fubles asks you to rate the other players if you want to see how you have been rated.
What is the scorecard?The scorecard is the result of the ratings that the participants are given after a match.
What is the rating?After a match has been played, Fubles asks you to indicate who won and to give a rating to each player. The ratings range from 4 to 10. If a user did not show up to the match you can report that by giving him/her the rating of No-show.
How does rating work?The final rating is the average of the received ratings. The rate may reflect not only your performance but also a more general judgment about your sporting qualities.
When can I see the others ratings?In order to see the rates given to a specific player, you have to rate him yourself. When the rating process is over all the rates become public and everybody can see them.
How do I rate a person who didn't show up?If a player does not take part in a match, report him as a 'no-show' during the rating process. Players are allowed only one no-show in a season (it can happen to anyone) and if they have more than one no-show they lose access to the functionalities of the site and therefore will not be able to play through Fubles.
Why should I follow a player?Following a player allows you to know about his activities in Fubles and gives to him the possibility to enroll you in a match.
Who are my followers?Followers are players who want to stay updated on your activities.
How can I follow a player?To start following a person you just need to push the ‘follow’ button in the profile page.
How can I find a friend in Fubles?In order to find a player you can search him/her in the ‘search box’ at the top of any page.
Can I bring a friend to a match?You can add to a match all the persons of whom you are the agent and other players external to Fubles ( you have to insert the main information about them).
What is the agency?The agency is the possibility to entrust another person to take care about the use of your account. The agent you choose can make you join or withdraw a match (but can't rate). For this reason we advice you to choose your agents very carefully, because if your agent enrols you in a match you don't go to, you will be rated as a No-Show anyway.
What is a club?Fubles players can form public or private groups called ‘clubs’.
What can I do with my club?You can arrange matches for clubs only. You can arrange trainings (for your club only), challenges (against other clubs) or open challenges (against a team made of free agents).
What is the ‘board’ in a club?There are different figures with different charges in a club:
- the coach, can accept challenges and organize matches in the name of his club
- the director can also accept, exclude or include new members
- the administrator can also change the club's details
- the founder is only one, and can't be excluded from the club and can't be taken his privileges.
