Scheduling a Match with your Opponent
For every fixture in the FQ E-Series competition, both competitors are required to add each other using their respective Xbox Gamertags or PSN, as listed on SportsTG. The two players must then communicate to arrange an exact match time.
Players must ensure their console privacy settings are set to public, so their opponent is able to find them when searching for their Gamertag/PSN ID.
The player listed as the ‘home’ team on SportsTG is responsible for setting up the match on FIFA 21.
At the end of every match, the winning player is required to fill in the Result Submission Form available on the FQ website and submit it to Football Queensland for validation before the fixture deadline.
All participants are required to read the FQ E-Series Competition Rules before commencing their first match.
