How to Add ClubsYou must create a club for each of your opponents and your own club. Your club must be set as the default club in Settings > General.
You will create teams for your own club but for opponent clubs with multiple teams it is necessary to create a separate club for each team. For example, Clubpress A, Clubpress B and Clubpress Ladies would be separate clubs. Learn more about how to setup clubs correctly.
