FTA may, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide to suspend any "Service" at any time. In the interests of maintaining integrity and fairness across the “Service, FTA may also void certain purchases in an Auction or void a whole Auction in its entirety.
FTA will not add or delete any players to the Auction list once the Auction has commenced.
If it has become obvious that a material player, as deemed by FTA, is missing from the list prior to the Auction commences FTA shall endeavour to include him, which may at times result with the Auction being delayed whilst updates are made. The decision will be at the sole discretion of FTA. If the Auction is delayed you are still bound to participate in the Auction under the general conditions of the website unless otherwise identified by FTA.
If a player fails to represent his team during the round of point scoring the customer shall have no recourse against FTA.
If a match is postponed prior to the course of the point scoring round the players shall score no points. The resulting replayed game will not count towards the points, unless FTA has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within two days of its original start date.
If a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and FTA believes that the match will not have been completed by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all points currently accrued for shall stand, unless FTA has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within two days of its original start date. If FTA does have knowledge that the game will be played within two days and the game is played within two days, then all points will stand except, in addition to any points accrued for in the second match unless the match is restarted from the beginning. If the match is restarted from the beginning then all points from the initial match which was abandoned will be void.
FTA makes every effort to have an accurate player list when the Auctions and DIY are first opened and makes every effort to ensure that it does not make any errors when offering player selections in the Auction. However, if as a result of technical or system problems or human error, a player is purchased in an Auction whose unavailability has already been announced FTA accepts no responsibility for the decision and you shall indemnify FTA from any further claim.
When the Auction is five minutes away from commencing the Auction will go into "lockdown". During lockdown the customer is restricted from leaving the Auction and will be bound to entering the Auction. Under no circumstance can a customer withdraw beyond this point.
If a customer/s fails to complete an Auction they shall accrue points for any players they had managed to purchase. All Auctions shall have a closing time assigned to it. Once the Auction is closed no more transactions can be conducted.
In the event that two or more customers score the same points and they are due prize money, the pot across the positions which are due a payout shall be summed up and divided by the number of people who scored the same number of points.
All points stand for a change of venue for any matches during the point scoring round.
All information supplied by FTA is done so in good faith. However, FTA cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions in respect of any information, such as the posting of prices, runners, times, scores, results or general statistics.
FTA reserves the right to correct any obvious errors and shall take all reasonable steps to ensure Auctions are administered with integrity and transparency.
If an incorrect team or competitor name is displayed (excluding minor spelling mistakes) or the incorrect number of teams, competitors or outcomes is displayed in any complete Auction or an Auction is otherwise loaded using incorrect information (for example the application of an incorrect exposure algorithm) or includes any obvious error, then FTA reserves the right to suspend the Auction and (providing it acts reasonably) to void all bets matched on the Auction.
Customers are responsible for ensuring that they satisfy themselves that the selection on which they place a bet is their intended selection. For example, in the case of a competitor bearing the same name as another individual not competing in the relevant event, the onus is on the customer to ensure that they know which competitor FTA has loaded into the relevant Auction and to ensure that they are placing their bet on their chosen competitor.
FTA may, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide to suspend betting on a Auction at any time. In the interests of maintaining integrity and fairness in the Auctions, FTA may also void certain bets in an Auction or void a whole Auction in its entirety.
On the settlement of any Auction, amounts relating to:
- winnings/losses on bets;
- commission charges will be rounded up or down to the nearest two decimal places (with the exception that rounding will always be down (and never up) in respect of amounts relating to winnings/losses in respect of BSP bets). By way of example, £4.333, will be settled as £4.33, whereas £4.335, will be settled as £4.34 (except that it will be settled as £4.33).
Any FTA customer who has any concerns or questions regarding the settlement of any FTA Auction should contact FTA via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the relevant telephone number. If a customer is not satisfied with how a Service has been settled then the customer should provide details of their grievance to FTA via email at email@example.com. FTA shall use its reasonable endeavours to respond to queries of this nature within a few days (but intends in any event to respond to all such queries within 14 days of receipt).
When a customer has exhausted the internal FTA betting dispute process without a satisfactory outcome, they may submit their betting dispute to IBAS, the Independent Betting Adjudication Service, or to such other independent betting adjudication service that FTA may recognise from time to time.
Following an IBAS (or equivalent) ruling FTA reserves the right at its discretion to take appropriate action which may include, amongst other things, the following options: (a) reversing settlement for all bets placed on the relevant Auction, including making adjustments to customers' accounts where necessary; or (b) paying out any customer who placed a bet on the Auction their 'net position' if that customer would have been in a better position had the Auction been settled as IBAS recommended (for example, if a customer would have won more money had the Auction been settled in that way, that customer will be paid the difference between what they originally received when the Auction was settled and the amount they would have won had the Auction been settled as IBAS recommended).

Telephone: Call our office on 01295 298252. Please leave a message if all our agents are busy.
Who will deal with your complaint
Each complaint will be addressed by a senior member of the company. The complaint will be assessed in the context of our terms and conditions. Wherever possible we will avoid any conflict of interest.
What happens after a compliant has been lodged
The company will initially acknowledge receipt of a complaint within 24 hours indicating who will be dealing with the complaint, details of the company’s complaints procedure and the appeals process.
The company will then fully investigate the complaint and endeavour to provide a full response within the next 72 hours.
If the company cannot draw a conclusion within this 72 hour period the complainant will be given an update of progress to date, with further updates provided during each subsequent 24 hour period.
The company will provide the outcome of its investigation in writing (either by post or email). The company will again reiterate the process for further escalation if the complainant feels the company’s response is inadequate.
The customer is entitled to appeal once to the company against the decision it has made. In this event the complaint will be reviewed by a separate member of the senior management team.
Should a complainant remain unsatisfied with the company’s response at the culmination of the company’s complaints procedure they can approach a third-party organisation called IBAS (The Independent Betting Service) who adjudicate on gambling disputes. They can be contacted via their website: www.ibas-uk.com.
