A forfeited game occurs when either one opponent gives up mid-contest, or when a game declared ended by the umpire or referee for violation of the rules, and awarded to the offended team.
Forfeits have also occurred on the occasion of unsafe conditions, such as when the crowd starts rioting, or when the field of play is deemed to be an unsafe location to hold the game.
