1. For all games in the EBEL, it is necessary to prepare official game sheets using the ÖEHV's official statistics program; the home club is required to maintain the official game sheet in the ÖEHV's Live Scoring System. Only persons who possess a valid identification card from the competent national federation may sit at the home club's officials' table. In this context, it is important to note that all official game sheets, forms and reports should be filled out using a typewriter or computer wherever possible. Clubs are required to allow the referees to send all messages pertaining to the EBEL using the club's fax machines or e-mail accounts. 

  2. For each team, a maximum of 20 skaters and 2 goalkeepers may be entered on the official game sheet. 

  3. After the game, the official game sheet must be checked in order to verify that the period results and final result are filled in, as well as the addition of goals and penalty minutes and the number of spectators indicated. The referees are required to delete absent players from the official game sheet.

  4. Objections to the accuracy of entries in the official game sheet can only be raised by the team managers and must be communicated to the referee within 30 minutes of the end of the game.

  5. The referees are required to accept any additional reports or objections from team managers up to 30 minutes after the end of the game and to forward such reports and objections to the EBEL office.

  6. Immediately after the end of the game, the event organizer must fax the official game sheet to the office of ÖEHV (Fax +43 / (0)1 / 202 00 20 – 50), to the Head of Statistics (Martin Kogler, +43 / (0)316 / 687 321), the EBEL Administrative Office (+43 / (0)1 / 890 17 54 - 12) and the opponents’ team office.
