REGISTRATION

To start your Switch On Sport gaming experience you must first register as a player. From the home page, click on the “Sign Up” panel (left-hand side). This should take you to the User Registration form. Enter your details into the form. The fields marked with a red asterix (*) are necessary fields, meaning they must be filled out.

Once you have read the Terms and Conditions and are ready to submit the form, click on the “SIGN UP TODAY” button.

VIEWING A COMPETITION

Once you’ve registered, you’re now able to join a tournament, although, you may wish to browse through the tournaments before you join one. To see a list of tournaments, navigate to the “PLAY NOW ” dropdown and, from there, select “Tournaments”. This should provide you with a list of tournaments. To view a tournament, click on the “VIEW TOURNAMENT” link. When viewing a tournament you are able to see the number of participants as well as the brackets (upcoming matches). Some tournaments will have players and matches within them, however, some others won’t.

ABOUT COMPETITIONS

Competitions typically have 2-3 rounds. In order to play within a competition you will have to keep in mind the competition score submission date. You will have to submit your scores prior to this date/time in order to continue to participate within the tournament. To view the score submission date for a tournament navigate to that tournament page and see the countdown timer.

SELECTING/JOINING A COMPETITION

When you’re ready to play and have found a tournament to join, navigate to the home page and then to the “UPCOMING TOURNAMENTS” section. From there you can join a tournament. Click on “JOIN NOW” to join a tournament. Note that once you’ve joined a tournament you are also able to leave it by clicking the “LEAVE” button. This leave button should be in the same place as the “JOIN NOW” button.

SUBMITTING SCORES

Once you have played your match, you are now ready to submit your scores. To submit your scores, first navigate to the tournament which contains the match you just played in. This can be done by first visiting the “PLAY NOW” dropdown and then selecting “Tournaments”. Select to “VIEW TOURNAMENT” for the tournament you wish to submit scores for. Click on the match/fixture you wish to submit scores for. Once you are in the fixture view submit your (and your opponent’s) results by inputting them in the “My Results” section of the fixture/match page.
