Adding playoff without decided teams

Ole Kristian Engvoll Updated by Ole Kristian Engvoll


A playoff can contain "teams" which are not calculated from group play or not exists in the league. Home and away team can be set to whatever name you like. For instance, home "team" can be named "To be decided in week 12" or "Team not decided" or whatever name. NOTE: If a team name is set in this manner, the "team" will NOT be moved to next playoff level (ex from 1/8 and into 1/4-final) by the system. Teams which shall play in next level, must also be decided by manual selection.

If not neccessary to make a new level, just check on "Has playoff"

NOTE: If you have used "Has playoff", you shall NOT select teams! Continue to next chapter.

Later, when matches are published into APP, the teams that shall play in different levels, must be chosen by manual. The teams which shall be possible to choose among, must be selected as shown in tab "Teams registered in league". Only these selected teams can be selected into matches in APP, when you are ready to publish name of the teams.
