A table football league is the most popular type of competition that wotscore offers probably because it is the more widely known than a tournament or ladder. Table football leagues of singles, doubles and even four-aside are supported.
The foosball leagues are based on a season (of which the entire history of previous seasons and charts can be viewed), and a 3 points for a win system. The league can be setup up so that teams play each other once only, or twice per season (e.g. home and away). They can also be setup so if they are away they can avoid a season and stay in the same division when they return (for instance box leagues).
An administrator first creates the table football league and then invites all the players into the via email (or facebook) through the site. They can then sort and order the players into divisions of arbitrary size using a drag and drop tool. If the divisions are large enough the administrator can also set the promotion and relegation zone. Once the end date has been set, the league can be started. The teams can then arrange matches through the site and make bookings for the tables on the wotscore calendar and enter the results. The software will automatically do the points calculation and perform promotion and relegation at the end of the season.
Here are some basic reasons to use wotscore over pen and paper or a spreadsheet:
The foosball leagues can be quite busy on wotscore with managers running dozens of leagues with new seasons happening every other month and a lot of animated commenting on the match results!
