UNBADGED SINGLES - CLARIFICATION OF RULES
It has come to our attention that the ECBA handbook is inconsistent about when Neutral Greens come into force in the Unbadged Singles
Rule 1(j) on page 33/34 is very clear on the matter - 'Neutral greens apply at the quarter-final stage'.
Please ignore the 'Neutral greens' comment on page 192
