This is the first step required to create a new competition. You will be asked to enter all the details, settings and rules for the competition. Once the competition has been created, you can then move onto the next step - adding teams and creating the fixture.
1. Hover the cursor over Competitions in the menu and select List Competitions.
2. A list of your competitions will appear. Click on New in the top right corner.
3. Select the type/ format of the competition. Three different formats are available:
Home and Away competition
Venue Allocation competition
An explanation of each competition format is provided. Click on the type of competition you want to use to proceed.
After selecting your competition format, you will see the 'Add New Competition' screen. This screen is the same regardless of the type of competition format you have chosen in Step 3.
4. On the 'Add New Competition' screen you are required to enter information on:
Details - the name of the competition and the season it belongs to.
Age group, division and gender.
Fixturing - number of teams, venues and rounds required and the default game start time and duration.

5. Once you have entered/ selected all the information and settings for your competition, click on Update Competition.
So long as all compulsory fields have been completed, a message will appear noting that the new competition has been successfully created.
NOTE: If any compulsory fields have not been completed, you will be automatically taken to the fields that need filling in. The field will appear in red with the message 'Field required' next to it. Enter the information and click on Update Competition to complete the setup of your competition.
Now that you have created a new competition and added its details, settings and rules, you are ready to add teams and generate a fixture.
