Players are asked to ensure they are present in the tournament area, and available to play their matches at all times during both the group and knockout stages (dependent on Organiser to manage the players)

2. Players who are not present within the tournament area when they are due to play their match risk having the match voided in favour of their opponent or elimination from the tournament. Tournament Admins are under no obligation to actively look for an absent player should this situation arise.

3. If any players do need to leave the tournament area for any reason they must let a Tournament Admin know so they can advise accordingly whether there is time to do this, and how long they are permitted to be absent.

4. If any players want to withdraw from the tournament with whatsoever reason at any stage:

a. No refunds will be provided

b. No slot(s) transfer or substitutions with other players are allowed

5. Their opponent will be given a win with a 0-3 score.

Team Selection, Personal Data Settings and Game Plans

1. Players may choose to use any Club or International team on PES 2020 apart from the European Classics and World Classics teams (Note: This is however, dependent on Organiser. Organiser can change the Team Selection accordingly – say, Clubs only, or Nationals only. Organiser to discuss on the matter with PESMY).

2. Players may use any personal data and button configurations they wish. To save time when

setting up matches, players are asked to save these configurations on each console once they

have been set up using their PES League username as the Personal Data Name. Players are

also asked not to over-ride the configurations of other players in doing this.

3. Players may use any game plan options available to them within PES 2020.

4. Due to the nature of the Sony PlayStation 4 system® it is not possible to load Personal Data

Settings and Game Plans from a USB stick. Please be aware of this in preparation for the tournament.

5. It is each player’s responsibility to ensure that their Personal Data Settings and Game Plans are correct before the kick-off option is selected. Once this has been done players may make any changes the game allows (providing they keep within the relevant rules under tournament

behaviour) however no matches will be restarted even if the match itself has not yet kicked off. If

a player does restart the game after the ‘kick off’ has been selected then the match will be voided and a 3-0 win recorded in their opponent’s favor.
