Subject: Electronic Match Card & Squad Assignment Updates - Reminder

As the majority of teams will be starting their league seasons in the coming weeks we are reissuing the information sent at the beginning of the month with respect to the Electronic Match Card Updates and Squad Assignment.

Reminder: All players must be assigned to the corresponding team’s squad via Team Management to be available for selection on an Electronic Match Card. 

Points to note on Squad Assignment:

The 100 effectively registered player limit does, however, remain.


Make sure anyone who is likely to need to fill in an EMC has been set up as a Match Card Administrator and has a permission level of 1, 3 or 5 on GMS by your club Data Officer.  They need this role in addition to any others they may have.

New for season 2021-2022 and further

Ensure that your players have been assigned to the appropriate team’s playing squad in Team Management on GMS. This is a new process for this season, so please check that it has been done. If this is not done then the players will not show up within the EMC for selection and you will not be able to complete your EMC. 

Helpful guides

For links to the RFU online PDF guides as well as EMC FAQs please check the RFU website. Step by step video guides can also be uploaded so please keep an eye out for those.


The score section on the EMC must be completed no later than 17:30 on the day of the game for men, if the game is played on a Saturday, and 18:00 for women.  For a game played on any other day the result must be reported within 30 minutes of the end of the game.
If for any reason you cannot get the result submitted online to the GMS by the deadline notified above then you MUST contact your results service by telephone on 0121 663 6631 or text the score and number of tries to 07908 683303.
The deadline for submitting your EMC to your League Secretary via the GMS is 17:00 on the day following the game i.e. on the Sunday for a game played on the Saturday. If the EMC administrator does not get a copy of the supposedly submitted card from the GMS via e-mail then it should be presumed that the card has NOT BEEN SUBMITTED properly and the GMS should be visited again to check whether the site shows that the EMC is "Pending" submission or has been "Approved".


If you have difficulty submitting your result via the GMS you must contact the results service with your score. 

A dedicated EMC helpline will be available to support you over the weekend. They can be contacted on 0208 831 7764.  Please note they can only help with technical enquiries – any matters relating to regulations should be referred to your league secretary.  

To confirm - the EMC Helpline is for technical queries only. It cannot assist with competition regulations or RFU rules. For this, please contact your League Secretary.
