Subject: Season Rollover - Extended Downtime (Whole Game System / England Football Portal)
Please find a statement below on a delay to the go live date of Whole Game System and Player Registrations during the Season Rollover process. We will continue to update when we can.
Yesterday afternoon, during the season rollover process, we encountered a number of issues stopping us from going live on the 6th as scheduled.
The issues sit with integration between Whole Game System & the England Football Portals and we are still waiting for a number of processes to complete.
The impact on the network will be;
No access to England Football Portals or Whole Game System
Further reduced window for the National League System
Delay to affiliation & league sanctions
This decision has not been taken lightly. We want to avoid a repeat of last year and ensure the platforms are working as expected before going live.
We do not have a ‘go-live’ as of yet, but we hope to know more tomorrow.
We appreciate this is frustrating, but we hope you can understand the decision to protect the experience for you and the end user
