Home Fixture (time has not previously been set)
If the time for a fixture has not been set previously, in BUCS the Institution Administrator (in LUSL either a Captain or an Institution Administrator) from the home institution will be able to set the time of the fixture without communicating this to the opposition. This is done by entering the desired time for the fixture in the empty time box. By clicking the 'Save changes' button you lock in that time and set that against the fixture.
NB: Once you have saved the time details you will not be able to edit the fixture time without sending a Fixture Change Request to the opposition. Times must also be set in accordance with the rules and regulations around permitted fixture times.
Home Fixtures (time has been previously set) and Away Fixtures
Once the time has been saved and you wish to change the time of the fixture, you must raise a Fixture Change Request. This can be raised by either the home or away team.
An automated email will be sent to the opposition with the details of the request, along with an alert displayed on the Fixtures tab of their Dashboard on BUCS Play. They will be required to accept/decline the request. If accepted, the date/time will automatically change. If declined you or they will be able to raise a further request to change the date/time.
NB: If the request is not accepted, the fixture is to be played at the original date and time as first set.
