Create early bird league/tournament registration tickets (web & app guide)

When you are setting up the tickets for league or tournament registration, you can create some tickets that are available until an earlier date than the other ticket types/registration options.

Example

Let’s say you want max 16 teams in a league, and you want to create an early bird registration:

  • You can open up 16 regularly priced team registration tickets, and 16 “early bird tickets” which have an earlier registration deadline.
  • If 6 teams register as early birds, and 10 teams register regularly, that means all team spots have been filled, and no other teams can register (the system knows that your league is open to a max of 16 teams)

How to create early bird tickets

On the Web

  • In the league set up mode, or Edit mode, from the Registration Options section, click on Add.
  • Select if the registration method will be Team (captain pays in full); Equal split; Custom split; or Free Agent.
  • Give the tickets a clear title (like “early bird registration — split payment”), give it a description (players will see this when they are registering), and input the cost per player or per team.
  • Select the date range for this early bird ticket.

On the App

  • In the league set up mode, or Edit mode, from the Registration Methods page, tap on Add.
  • Select if the registration method will be Team (captain pays in full); Equal split; Custom split; or Free Agent.
  • Give the tickets a clear title (like “early bird registration — split payment”), give it a description (players will see this when they are registering), and input the cost per player or per team.
  • Select the date range for this early bird ticket.
  • You will be brought back to the main Registration Methods page, where you will see an overview of all the ticket types you have created. When you have created all of your tickets, tap Save
  • You will notice a Warning pop up if you create more tickets than the max amount of team spots you opened during the set up process. Click Continue.
  • The system will automatically apply this constraint for you, so you do not have to worry about too many teams registering
