For most leagues there is an entry fee but for some we will offer a reduced price and in some instances we will offer this for free. The cost of matches each week are a minimum of N10,000 (depends on facility) for the whole team, which should be paid online or by bank transfer prior to arriving for matches.
The match fee goes towards offsetting some of the hire cost of the pitch, the cost of the match manager, use of the match balls which are essential to the playing of the competitive sport and general admin.
This depends on how many teams are in each division, but usually a season lasts about 12 weeks. We operate rolling seasons meaning after your current league season ends a new one will commence the following week.
We operation a flexi-squad system where you can use any amount of players through the season. A team is allowed no more than 2 guest players per match and all guest players names should be submitted to the HIVE League Management three (3) days before your match.
There are a number of different pitch types ranging from water based astro to 5G astro natural grass. This makes every venue unique and it differs as to what is allowed or disallowed. We will advise you on what footwear may be best for your venue.
All Captains will be sent the rules and regulations which they must agree and sign to before being accepted into the leagues. We expect that Captains will disseminate ALL pertinent information to their team members. Captains are fully responsible for their teams and their behaviour and are the sole point of contact between the team and The HIVE Leagues Management.
