Electronic Match Cards
In 2016 the NSFA transitioned to an electronic match card (EMC) system, replacing the existing paper match card system.
It is beneficial for all Team Managers and Referees to have their own Smartphone enabled to connect to the internet over a mobile data connection. If one or two do not have a suitable smartphone, please see if the other will allow you to use their phone. Simply login properly and perform the game day tasks from that phone. If that is not possible please ask players if they have a suitable device for you to use.
NSFA have performed availability and speed testing at ALL NSFA grounds. This confirmed that 3G/H+/4G signals are available on Telstra/Optus/Vodafone networks at the technical area of all grounds. Testing was performed using both Android and Apple iOS devices. The only ground with a potential issue is Tunks #3, Cammeray. Coverage is however available near the amenities block if technical area proves difficult.
The fall back position is always to revert back to paper match cards. Always carry a generic paper match card to all games (containing all player details). Complete team names, game time and ground at the game.
