This guide will show match officials how to accept or decline a match appointment using the COMET Football app.


Viewing your matches

When you log into the COMET Football app, your home screen will show the upcoming matches that you have been appointed to.

green circle shows that you have accepted the match appointment.

An amber circle shows that the match is pending and you have not yet accpted or declined the appointment.

You will also see a notification at the top and bottom of the screen to show where you have new matches.  In this example, the 2 in the red circle means there are two new match appointments awaiting  a response.

Tap the red circle notification at the top of the page to see just those matches that are pending and need a response.
