The Best Players feature allows clubs and teams to nominate the best performing players in a game and publish their names on the public game centre.

  • Associations can enable the best players feature in grade settings within a competition

  • Once enabled, Association admins can set how many best players can be selected 

  • Admins can then select the best players for a game from the game details page

  • Team Managers and Coaches with management access can also select best players for a game via My Teams

  • Best Players will appear in the game centre for finalised games

Selecting Best Players

If the Best Players grade setting has been enabled, a Best Players table will appear in the game details. This table appears in the admin portal and participant portal.
