Contingency 2016

Postponements and re-arrangement procedures for BUCS Big Wednesday

There will be a series of circumstances that will need to be considered that will lead to a fixture(s) being postponed and re-scheduled. This will generally be, but not exclusively, due to inclement weather or technical failure within a facility. The contingency planning process for BUCS Big Wednesday (BBW) for the potential cancellation of fixtures on Wednesday is as follows.

In the case of inclement weather affecting a grass pitch, a spare all weather pitch is available at Sports Park site which can be utilised if necessary for football. The other all-weather pitch originally assigned for lacrosse can also be used Rugby Union if necessary and should scheduling permit.  All players are advised to bring Astroturf or rubber studded shoes in case a change of pitch is required.

Sheffield Hallam, SIV and BUCS will monitor weather leading up to event and review options regularly. Should changes to schedule and pitches not be feasible postponements will occur. This will result in the first named team hosting on 23rd March unless otherwise agreed between both teams involved. Please can the home named teams look to make arrangements for this now in case of postponements at Big Wednesday.

BUCS will appoint all match officials for all postponements.
