Registration Details

How does registration work?

It’s a simple 3-step process. Provide your company information, select your chosen sports, and then your entry level. Following this, we will work with your company representative to register the individual players in your chosen sports.

Do I need to provide Emirates ID copies for each participant?

Yes, we will need a valid Emirates ID for each active participant for verification, medical, and insurance purposes.

Can I register more than one team per sport/activity?

Companies are welcome to register as many teams as they wish in all activities. Please note that there will be schedule overlaps for some activities and it is the participants’ responsibility to ensure any conflict is avoided. For those who wish to participate in more than one activity, we encourage teams to max out the team roster so there are always enough players. Any teams that do not meet the minimum player requirements may be disqualified.

Is there a minimum number of teams a company must register?

There is no minimum number of teams required. Larger companies on average register 10-20 teams while others can enter just 1-3 teams. We welcome all companies equally, but the more teams you register, the higher your organization’s chance of winning the championship title.

Team Questions

Can team rosters be changed?

Roster management will be organized internally by your company representative, in most cases your HR department or the social/wellness committee. You are free to move and replace players as you wish, as long as your teams meet the minimum player and gender requirement, if applicable. Please contact your company’s representative for more information.

Do we have to prepare anything for the event?

We ask that all participants re-check the schedule before arriving at the event. We will do all we can to avoid last minute changes, but changes can sometimes be inevitable. Also, to speed up the waiver checking process, please fill in the online waiver form well in advance of the event.

Where do I sign my waiver?

All players must sign the waiver to participate in the championship. The waiver only needs to be signed once and will covers all events. Be sure to fill in the online waiver before arriving – this will be shared with your company representative once you’ve been signed up. Please note that waiver checks will be done pre-event.

What do I need to bring to the Championship?

Individuals should wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the respective activity, plus any protective equipment, such as such shin guards, etc. The most essential thing is to stay hydrated, water will be provided throughout the day along with healthy food and snacks. Last but not least, bring your sense of sportsmanship and fun!  

Who is the Company Representative for my organization?

Your Company Representative is the first point of contact for any questions you may have. They are the liaison between Corporate Sport team and your company. They handle all event information distribution, including roster management and updates. 

Can we go over the maximum allowed on a team roster?

If a team wishes to go beyond the maximum number of players allowed on a team, email us ahead of time and let us know the reason. Since most of our events take place over the course of a 2-day tournament, substitution is allowed in cases where a player may be unable to attend on both days (if the maximum number of players allowed isn’t exceeded).  

Can people outside my company play for us?

We are committed to the integrity of our Championship – all winning teams must be made up of 100% company employees. In case of an emergency, we may permit external participants, however, your team will then forfeit the chance to take home the Corporate Sports Championship Grand Prize.

If you find this is the case, please inform a Corporate Sports Team member asap.

What attire will be required?

Participants should wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the respective activity, plus any protective equipment such as shin guards etc. A team uniform will be provided, with help of your team Captain and POC. The most essential thing is to stay hydrated, water will be provided throughout the day along with healthy food and snacks. Last but not least, bring a smile, sense of sportsmanship and the fun!

Will Corporate Sports be proving Team Uniform?

Every team will be required a personalized Team Uniform. We have a dedicated apparel partner, who you will be directed to after the registration process is completed to discuss the design and printing of your bespoke Championship Uniform.

What is the uniform Design Guideline?

You may be as creative as you like and use the shirt to showcase your companies’ vision and values to the max. However, we have to respect our fellow competitors, spectators and their families. Therefore, all designs will have to be approved by the Corporate Sports Team and will have to be abide to local customs and traditions. Please keep this in mind when designing your uniform.

How will the scheduling work? Can we participant to multiple sports?

Championship schedules will be posted on our website two weeks ahead of the event. Due to the nature of the scheduling process we can only begin once ALL teams are finalized. We will do our best to accommodate last minute requests as this

prior to KO.
