The minimum roster policy dictates that your team must have a minimum of four of their players identify with a gender that is not the roster’s majority. This can be any combination of gender identities, as per the examples below.

Working Examples

A roster of 10 with 6 Male players, and 4 Female players would be legal due to 4 players making up a gender minority.

A roster of 10 with 6 Female players, 3 Male players, and 1 Agender player would be legal due to 4 players making up a gender minority.

A roster of 15 with 8 Male players, 5 Female players, 1 Genderfluid player, and 1 Agender player would be legal due to 7 players making up a gender minority.

A roster of 12 with 9 Male players, 1 Genderfluid player and 2 Female players would be illegal, due to only 3 players making up a gender minority.
