Overview

The Pitchero League platform is available for all league levels. For some leagues, the fixtures lists are scheduled well in advance of the season starting. For other leagues, the fixtures are scheduled closer to the time (e.g. on a monthly basis).

To add/upload a fixture to Pitchero, you need to have the following fixture details:

  • The fixture date
  • The home team name
  • The away team name
  • The kick off/start time

Fixtures can be added/uploaded to your Pitchero League website at any time (before the season, during the season, or even after the season) providing you have the details above.

 

For leagues that schedule their fixtures closer to the time, we have developed the Fixture Wizard tool.

This allows the League Admin to list the teams and how many times they will play each other during the season.

An unscheduled fixture list will be generated for the League Admin to manage the scheduling of fixtures via Excel / Google Sheet.

Once scheduled with a fixture date, the fixture(s) can then be uploaded to the Pitchero League website.
