You can add regular season games to a grade's fixture at any point. The game will be considered part of the regular season for the teams involved, and will count toward ladder calculation and other statistics. This article covers the process and elements of adding a regular season game to a fixture.
Note: You can also add a finals game in a similar but separate process.
Adding a game to a fixture
Select the Competition Management main menu item, and then the appropriate Competition and Season tile, and then select the Grades tab. Select the View Fixture button for the appropriate grade. Select the Add a Game button:
You'll arrive on the Create new game page. Use the screenshot and table below to add the game:
|1||Game details||Pool||Note: Only shows for a Grade configured with 'Pools'. Select the Pool to add a game.|
|Home team||Select the home team for your new game from the list of teams that are currently allocated to the grade/pool.|
|'Team swap'||Select the team swap icon to switch the home and away teams for the game.|
|Away team||Select the away team for your new game from the list of teams that are currently allocated to the grade/pool.|
|Round||Select a round from those that were created when you generated your fixture.|
|Game alias||Enter an optional 'game alias' if you would like an alternative name for the game to display in the fixture.|
|2||Allocation||Venue||Select a venue from the full list of venues in the system. This is the venue that this game will be played at.|
|Playing surface (Court/field)||Selecting a venue enables the appropriate list of playing surfaces (court/field). Select from the list of available surfaces at the selected venue.|
|Date||Enter the date of the new game. The selected date can fall on an exception date, however, you will be reminded on the form if you do select an exception date.|
|Start time, End time||Enter a start time for the new game. The game's end time will automatically populate based on the total game duration that is set for the grade in the grade's settings.
Note that the minutes in the start time can only be entered in 5-minute increments (e.g. you cannot set the start time to 5:43 but either 5:40 or 5:45 is valid).
Once the required fields have been entered for the new game, the Add game button will become available in the upper right corner of the form. Selecting this will add and display the new game in the round that was chosen within the grade's fixture.
