Managing Clubs

Clubs are the most essential feature of WP Club Manager and it is important to set them up correctly.

In Club Mode you should add a new club for your own club and a new club for each of your opponents.

Your club will be the Default Club which you should set in Club Manager > Settings > General. If your club has teams, for example 'First Team' and 'Reserves', then they will be created in Teams.

For your opponent clubs, a new club must be added for each opponent team. For example, 'Wordpress United' and 'Wordpress United Reserves' would be two separate clubs.

Teams are disabled in League Mode.
