What are Match Day Cards?
If you’re local league is utilising this feature then each Team Manager and Coach will have the added Match Day Cards feature available on their device (once they have been assigned to the team as a Coach or Manager by the Club’s LeagueNet admin).

What is the purpose of MyLeague and Match Day cards?
MyLeague cards provide registered Rugby League participants with access to their own personal card, which can be used for verification purposes on Game day. In addition this, Coach and Volunteers can monitor the status of their accreditations as they will include each of their active accreditations relevant to the role they fulfil in the game i.e. Coach or Trainer
What are the benefits of digital cards opposed to physical cards?
Previously, Leagues, Clubs and Team Managers have experienced a number of issues with the physical cards, most notably:
- Forgetting their team ID book resulting in their team being unable to take the field.
- Large Printing costs
- Increased workload for Volunteers and Administrator in coordinating the issuing of physically cards
- Cards displaying outdated information and requiring to be reprinted throughout the season.
- Players changing Clubs and having to obtain a new card
These issues can now be alleviated as digital cards will allow team managers to simply open the MyLeague App on their phone and swipe through their team’s cards prior to the match without needing to bring the any hard copies of the player’s cards or photo books. Cards will also update if information displayed on the card I is modified/changed via the Leaguenet National database.
What should I do if I am a Team manager and phone battery goes flat or I have forgotten my Phone?
Multiple Team staff can be provided access to match day cards such as the Coach, Assistant Coach or Assistant Team Manager who will be able to assist in these scenarios. Or alternately you can sign-in on a trusty club official/player/parent nearby who has the MyLeague App. Just ensure you sign-out after the card check has been completed.
I am a Team Manager and I cannot locate the match I would like to assign cards to. What should I do?
Not to worry we have created a ‘Custom Match’ option to allow you to still utilise this feature in these scenarios. You simply just need to select this option and begin ordering your cards like you would for any other match.
I am a Team Manager and a player is not displaying in my team list?
All team staff and players assigned to the team via LeagueNet will display for selection. If a participant is not showing then they have not been assigned to the team. If this occurs on game day the participant or participants parent/guardian will also have access (if they have downloaded the app and linked their profile) to their own personal card, which if needed could be utilised in this scenario assuming the participant is eligible to participate in the match according to the competition rules.
