The timely filing of game reports is a league mandated obligation and is one of the duties and responsibilities of the referee under Law 5. If your report is not filed within 48 hours, you are not paid for the game. No exceptions. Don’t complain to the assignor. He has no discretion. This only applies to center referees since it is their obligation to file the report. Assistant referees are always paid for their work.
Please make sure to file your game report on time.
