Overview

Pitchero has a comprehensive Competitions Database which holds thousands of competitions across multiple sports.

The Competitions Database is managed by League Admins and Division Admins whose responsibility is to manage the fixtures and results each game week.

If the league competition you wish to connect your team to isn't available, please contact our Support Team directly.

A League Admin is often a league officer or administrator using the Pitchero League platform.

A Division Admin is often a Team Admin or Webmaster of the club connected to the competition.
