Policy: Forfeit

As per Rules Section 5 Participation (Section 5.3)


  1. Teams unable to make a scheduled game will advise the CMBA office and the opposing team of the circumstances as far in advance as possible, to the scheduled start of the game. This will be a forfeit loss to the team unable to play.  The score for this shall be recorded at 0-20.
  2. In the event of a team not able to field the minimum number of players required to start a game, or the team does not show up at all, the opposing team will be awarded a forfeit win.  The score for this shall be recorded at 20-0.
  3. A team which fails to show up for two (2) scheduled games during the season will be asked to withdraw from league play unless there are reasonable circumstances. This will not apply to a team which has given notice per rule 5.3.1.
  4. A team failing to appear at a CMBA tournament or playoff game will lose the missed game and the next game, at the discretion of the Tournament Chairperson.

Forfeits:  Any game that is forfeited will result in the offending Association being fined $150.00.

The money collected from the fine will be paid to CMBA within a 30 day period which will then be passed onto the team that was forfeited on, thru their association.  If a travel advisory stated by AMA Road report is put in place that preludes a team from attending a game a phone call to the CMBA office must be made. Once verified by the CMBA office then no fine will be assessed.  The AMA website will be the determining factor on travel advisories. Teams that forfeit twice in any season of play  will come under review by the CMBA Executive and may lose their privilege to participate in CMBA League Play and/or CMBA Playoffs. Any player who plays on two teams in CMBA Spring League will be suspended and the team(s) they played on forfeit.
