This is to ensure that the team is able to field a full team even in the event of any injuries or suspensions currently affecting the club. The maximum amount of players that any team can have at any given time is 30. Failure to adhere to these rules will incur punishment for the club, that will be agreed by the Admin team and the manager will then be informed. This punishment may include but not be limited to a fine, touchline ban, and points deduction. #

There will be a post on the forum at the beginning of each season with the choice of season objectives. #
  6. Transfers

    1. Buying/Selling

      You can buy or sell anyone as long as both the managers agree to the deal and that the ESL Admin don't see anything dodgy about the deal... I.E Manchester United selling W_Rooney for 1,000,000 would not go through, All transfers are on the forum or pm'ing a manager to get deal, the deal will only go through on the next transfer update if both manager have confirmed the deal on the Transfer Confirmation board. Transfer are updated EVERY WEDNESDAY. #
    2. Loans

      Each team can loan 3 players in or out, You can only loan ONE player a team (You can loan one in and one out) If you already have a player on loan from a team and wish to loan someone else from them then you have to send the player already at your club back. Premiership teams can loan a player with the maximum skill of 19 and Championship teams can loan a player with the maximum skill of 18. #
    3. Scouting

      You are allowed to Scout ONE player only per team, You just need to post a new post in the Scouting Forum bit of what you would like to be scouted, for example 13 rated DF... The rest is done by Myself or Alan Boyce (Boycie), we will have a Scout List and will randomly pick a player from this list and post a reply underneath your post with the player and value. It is then down to you whether you accept or reject this player, If you reject this player you will not be allowed to scout another player. Please Choose wisely. Further details will also be posted in the scouting bit on the forum.

      ALSO THE SCOUTED PLAYER CAN NOT BE LOANED OUT OR SOLD UNTIL OF THE SEASON!!! #
