6. Team League

6.1 Introduction

The RankedIn Team League is a competition format where teams compete in a league format. It’s great for clubs or organizations that want to run an ongoing competition and create a routine for their players. It is a great way to create a competitive environment in your organization and attract more players over time.

6.2 How it works

The team league is a round robin format for teams which include several players. The number of players per team and number of matches played is flexible and decided by the admin. The teams play against each other and the admin defines the number of matches to be played (home or away) and the number of matches won per team to define the team winner. It’s easier and flexible and you can create and set up the team league only by creating the teams. Players can join afterwards.
