Code of Conduct

The British Esports Association takes safety of players very seriously. As such, we have implemented several measures to protect the wellbeing and identities of those who take part in our tournaments.

Playing of matches Only those rostered can play. A player can only represent their own college.

Unsporting Behaviour (“flaming”, “toxicity”, “bm”, “hacking”) Any unsporting behaviour is a punishable offence and harms enjoyment of the game. When dealing with unsportsmanlike conduct, it’s important that admins have proof of exactly what happened. If an opposing player verbally abuses a member of your team or deliberately behaves in an unsporting manner you must take screenshots and report directly to an admin. Depending on circumstance a player can be punished instantly or if the issue requires more investigation, this will be done after the tournament.

Safeguarding British Esports considers the three areas of risk in online safety, as outlined by the Department for Education.

Content: all esports titles used by the British Esports Association will be age appropriate. Fifa 20 is 3+.

Contact: each fixture in the Fifa 20 tournament will be played via a closed community platform. Only students registered by their college will be able to access the platform. Professional Tournament Admins will be monitoring all online interactions and fixtures.

Conduct: every college will submit the names of each player representing their institution as well as their in-game name (full names of players will not be shared without strict permission). Therefore, in the event of misconduct, that player can be held responsible and penalties will be imposed. Admins, and every college Leader, are responsible for ensuring all rules are followed and standards of fair play are maintaining throughout.

College Leaders can request to have data erased. More information on data protection can be found in the T&Cs on the tournament website.
