Play order purpose

Ole Kristian Engvoll Updated by Ole Kristian Engvoll


In some kinds of leagues, special criteria are very important. In PL there are about 15 criteria which can be set in order to make a correct schedule. Examples of such criteria are

  • Reducing number of home (also away) matches following each other
  • First match must be on away venue
  • Teams must play each other in certain rounds...and so on.

NOTE: There are types of leagues which can not use "Play order": Leagues using play keys and cross pool play.

  1. Area to make new schedules.
  2. Each schedule will have a set with criteria.
  3. Each schedule will have solutions. These are shown here.

What to achieve

Using "Play order" will give you a number of solutions based on the criteria which are set. A solution is a schedule based on matches in chronological rounds. Matches include only teams and week number, and no time and venue.

Each solution will have a value telling how the criteria are fulfilled.
