Welcome to www.ultimatefootball.co.uk
This page tells You the terms on which You as registered users may use the services Ultimate Football provides.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully before registering your team on our website.
In these conditions, “We” “Us” and “Our” means Ultimate Football and “You” and “Your” means all persons named in your team and anyone who is added or substituted at a later date.
These are the terms and conditions referred to in the form your team captain completed in order to register your team on Our website (‘Registration Form’), for Us to let your team participate in one of our football leagues or competitions.
They describe the terms on which We will supply the Services to You, and they explain our responsibility to You if We fail to meet these standards.
This introduction is designed to give You an overview of the terms and conditions, but it is not part of the terms and conditions themselves.
- The Contract
3.1 The Registration Form is your offer to buy the Services from Us on these Conditions, and You must make sure that the Registration Form (and any specification that forms part of your Registration Form) is correct.
3.2 The details required of all players in your team must be entered accurately and in full.
3.3 The acceptance of the terms in the Registration Form by the team captain will constitute a booking made by every individual in your team including anyone who is added or substituted at a later date.

3.5 When We send You email confirmation accepting your registration form, You have a binding contract with Us, and these Conditions are part of it.

3.7 We do not own the sports grounds where matches will be played. All our suppliers have their own booking conditions which are available on request. Despite what clause 3.6 says, You must accept the conditions of our suppliers as part of the contract. You should note that such conditions might include clauses excluding or limiting liability for injury, loss or damage to people or property.

6.1 During completion of the Registration Form, the Team Captain will pay a deposit of £10 via Our online provider called Stripe (the “Deposit”).
6.2 Teams are only required to pay the Deposit once, providing they remain in their specified league.
6.3 The Deposit amount will be deducted from the Team Match Fee payable for your first fixture, e.g. You pay a £10 Deposit online and then at your first match you pay the appropriate Team Match Fee (£34 for example) less the £10 Deposit, therefore for the first fixture (as per the example) you must pay £24 at the league venue.
6.4 The Deposit is non-refundable.

If You disagree with it, You must send Us a Notice within 2 weeks of the date of our Notice. We will then be able to end the contract by giving You 4 weeks’ Notice.
6.9 If You fail to pay the Team Match Fee in full on time in accordance with clause 6.7:
6.9.1 We are entitled to forfeit Your match and award points and a 3 – 0 win to Your opponents;
6.9.2 You allow Us to charge the unpaid Team Match Fee by debiting the bank account of the Team Captain directly via the payment details we hold on Stripe..
6.10 If you fail to pay your Team Match Fee in full, twice in one season, we will be entitled to terminate this contract straight away as this is considered a serious breach for the purpose of clause 17.1.9.
6.11 You are not allowed to hold back any payment due to Us as a set-off or credit or counterclaim in relation to money which You think We owe to You unless the law allows it. However, We may set off any amount You owe Us against any amount We owe You.
