appointed referee fails to attend, the teams concerned
must agree upon a substitute referee under all circumstances
. Once the match official has been agreed he/she cannot be changed unless
they become injured or have a personal emergency. Failure to abide by Rule
23B may see the game void. It is a serious breach of rule for team managers
not to agree on a referee for the said league cast fixture and they may see
