A - Conduct of Games


The usage of the video jumbo screens and video scoreboards in arenas should enhance the game and not intrude or affect the flow of the game.

The images on the jumbo screen should entertain, but not incite the fans. Under no circumstances should video shown on the jumbo screen be used to disgrace the game, its players, game officials, team officials or spectators.

In general a wide variety of different images can be shown on the jumbo screen during the game. However, the main focus should be on creating an additional value to the game itself by primarily using images such as live game action, game action replays, infotainment cartoons, player pictures etc.

In a lesser extend pure amusement images should be used such as crowd animation cartoons, fan close ups, etc.

The following guidelines should help the organization to reach these goals by using the jumbo screen.

In case of not following these rules a consequence will be the prohibition to use the jumbo screen during the championship or the event.

  1. At no time a video replay have to be shown on the jumbo screen if the intent or obvious effect of the replay will be to incite the fans or to be critical of the officiating of the game.

  2. In particular, close, questionable or controversial officiating calls or plays in which no call is made and to which the crowd reaction is obviously negative, may not be replayed.

  3. Although live game action is permitted on the jumbo screen, to show fights and situations leading to fights is forbidden. Showing of video from the video goal judge replay system is not permitted.
