For some time now, one aim of GIFFA was to have a regular game every day of the week (other than possibly Friday). The idea was that for any day of the week, there was a game available, if you were keen to play and put your name down early enough.
- Weekends at Turf City (4 to 5 pm on Saturdays and 5 to 6 pm on Sundays).
- Tuesday to Thursday nights at The Cage (9 to 10 pm)
Although the blog started off as a platform for organising regular indoor football, the regular indoor football is now entirely on the GIFFA Message Board, from scheduling, to reports, to the monthly round ups.
The core values or principles we play to were summarized even earlier, in March 2009. Essentially, it is about participating and playing in the right spirit.
The rules we play to were also summarized about a year ago. There have been some changes since then, and I said in January 2010 that I’d summarize the rules again.
I’ll summarize the system, principles and rules as comments below, so that they can all be found under one post.
I’ve also developed a standard template for each scheduling thread on the Schedule Board of the GIFFA Message Board. The standard template will also be added as a comment below for ease of reference.
