Standings are displayed on the Public Schedule page and will update automatically as you enter scores.
Below your standings, you'll see some info on your current standings configuration (which metrics are used to sort teams).
Custom Standings Configuration
We let you choose from a number of default configurations (even in the free version).
Editing and creating your own custom standings is a PRO feature.
To customize your standings, first go to your PUBLIC SCHEDULE page and click the Standings Config button above your standings.
You'll see the following dialog:
Apply your selected configuration
Make sure to click Apply in order to apply this configuration to your event's standings. You may also set a configuration as the standard for the current sport so you don't have to set it each time. Simply click the make default button shown in the screenshot above.
Edit your selected configuration
Click the edit button to access the edit standings dialog.
You can change
which columns are displayed and in what order
labels and abbreviations of those columns
tie breakers – the columns on which to sort and in which order
assign custom point values for wins/losses/ties as well as (overtime/extra-time) OT wins/OT losses
enable/disable track sets (sub-scores / games)
enable/disable overtime (extra-time)
switch the order in which home and away teams are displayed on the schedule (home v away or away @ home)
set a number of decimal places for your score entry, e.g. in order to record half points
There are two lists of column names: one for display, the other for sorting (tie breakers).
For points-based standings, you can edit the number of points awarded per win, draw, loss, overtime win, overtime loss, and shutouts.
This affects the POINTS columns, not the SCORES columns.
You can also manually set points for each match. Once a score is recorded, click the edit game icon for that game and edit the home points and away points fields.
Note: In our Volleyball template, we have turned on OT with 2 points for an OT win and 1 point for an OT loss, so if you use the rule where a 3-2 win allocates a point to the losing team, simply enter the final set as the OT score.
To hide standings completely, simply select hide standings under Standings Config.
In PRO, you can also hide standings for each division/pool/entire league by setting the number of games for the division to 0 on the Schedule Maker under Divisions or removing your divisions from the season by taking the checkmark off under Manage Divisions.
Standings Columns Explained
Scores from the main score boxes.
Scores from sub-score boxes (with track sets enabled)
Goals/points scored minus goals/points allowed (the numbers in the main score boxes for each game).
Score Difference (n)
Score difference with each game capped at max n.
Example: Score difference (4) would count an 8-1 win as 4, same as a 5-1 win or a 100-0 win.
Games won, divided by games played.
By default, this matches scores for/against. It will differ only when you overwrite the scores in the main score boxes with a different score than automatically calculated after entering sub-scores into the sub-score boxes.
Sets won divided by sets played. Calculated from subscores entered.
Example: A volleyball match [25-20, 18-25, 19-25, 25-21, 15-12] would count as 3-2, therefore 3/5 = 40% or 0.400
Points scored divided by the sum of points scored + points conceded. (Points here refers to the numbers in the main score boxes for each game.)
Example: a 3-1 win would be 75% goals percentage or 0.750
Use case: a tennis league with a time limit wants to record scores of incomplete sets when the matches run out of time – e.g. 6-1 4-6 5-3 – but does not count the incomplete sets as wins, as would be the case with Sets Percentage, which is calculated the sub-scores and would register this as 2-1 sets. By using Goals Percentage, the standings will take the scores entered in the main score boxes, which can be modified to show 2-0 while keeping the sub-scores to show the incomplete set.
Sum of sub-scores for divided by sum of sub-scores for + sub-scores against. Sub-scores are the numbers entered into the secondary / sub-score boxes which are displayed when enabling the track sets toggle.
Example: The same volleyball match from above [25-20, 18-25, 19-25, 25-21, 15-12] would count as 102-103, therefore 102/103 = 99.03% or 0.990
With Team A being the first ranked team, for each Team B, games behind is
Like Games Behind but using sets won and sets lost (calculated from sub-scores).
Number of games won without conceding a goal (score in main score box).
Total scores for divided by total scores against (score in main score box).
Total sub-scores for divided by total sub-scores against.
if teams have played each other more than once, aggregate goal difference (scored – conceded) is considered as well (away goals do not count for more in this case); if they're still tied, overall goal difference is used
if multiple teams are tied, head-to-head will sort first on the number of head-to-head comparisons won within the group of tied teams, then on direct head-to-head (if any 2+ teams are tied on the first h2h metric)
if you're confused about why teams are ordered the way they are, you can add the head-to-head column to be displayed in your standings. it will show the number of h2h wins and, if applicable, a second number for direct h2h wins
Note: The head-to-head column will only be calculated if it's included in the tie breakers. If you include it in the display columns, but not the sorting columns, it will just show blank (-) for each team.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
What do the abbreviations mean?
You can hover your mouse over the abbreviated column headers on your standings table and it will show you the full label for that column. On mobile, you can tap each column header to see the unabbreviated column label.
