We play football indoors on a Tuesday and outdoors on a Friday at Sussex University. Games are friendly, we are faculty and postgraduate students of various ability. Males and Females of all abilities welcome. Fee per game is £2.50.
Membership is restricted to Sussex University Faculty and Postgraduates (mainly Psychology, Informatics, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physical Sciences) - any requests to join from people outside of the University will be declined - sorry. WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS.
Rules of the group:
These meet-ups only work if people follow the rules. The basic rule is don't be a dick. If you sign up, show up, if you don't sign up, don't show up. Other than that games are played in a friendly spirit, and what happens on the pitch is left on the pitch. (i.e., if you fall out with someone, make up before you go home).
Breaking the rules of the group will get you a 'yellow card', two yellow cards and you'll get a 'red card'. A red card means you will be removed from the group. What can you get a yellow card for:
- Signing up but not showing up. If you sign up but cannot play, then you must give at least 4 hours notice and change your RSVP to 'no'. Not doing so is unfair to people on the waiting list. Obviously things can conspire against us sometimes, but other things being equal, this will get you a yellow. Your dog eating your football boots is not a good excuse.
- Showing up but not signing up. If you show up for a game and have not signed up, but you don't leave when we ask you nicely to, then you'll get a yellow.
- If you find new and inventive ways to annoy existing members of the group we reserve the right to invoke a straight red.
A red card is irreversible (i.e. you won't be allowed to rejoin), but yellows will be re-set each term in the first instance.
