In our system, club and team names are stored once only, for all purposes. So, if your club name is "Sometown", and you have 3 teams, named "1st team", "2nd team" and "3rd team", our system combines the stored values of [club] and [team] to display, on a page listing your teams:
- 1st team
- 2nd team
- 3rd team
...and on a page listing a team's fixtures:
Sometown 1st team v Anytown 6th team
...all of the above being displayed from the stored values of [club] and [team]
We are happy to change club and team names on request from club administrators, though for high profile clubs we will usually consult with the governing body and/or relevant leagues, to ensure everyone is clear.
When requesting name changes to accommodate sponsor names, please consider what needs to be changed, and how [club] and [team] will appear on different pages. Please note:
- changing club and team names will also affect all past data - it it not possible to have different names for the same club or team at different times, nor in different competitions
- if there is no way to implement your changes using existing club and team names, then the only other option is to create completely new clubs or teams - but, again, these would not have any relation to old data and may have other undesirable effects.
