At the League's mid-season meeting this evening, the clubs agreed that in instances where three match officials are appointed (i.e. referee + 2 assistant referees), the two teams will share the officials' match fees equally (amounting to £27 per team), with the home team paying any travelling expenses as previously. This will particularly affect the League Cup semi-finals through March.

It is compulsory for teams to exchange Player Registration Cards with their opponents before each fixture
. Following a GFA decision during a hearing last season, the following should be noted:
If a team does not have a card for a player then that player is ineligible and must not play in the match.
If a team has no cards for the entire team (or if only 6 cards or less are available), then the match must not take place. The facts must be reported to the League who will deal with it as a broken fixture, and the defaulting team should pay the referee his/her entire fee and expenses.
If any game takes place then no protest will be entertained thereafter relating to the failure to exchange or produce player ID cards.
