How to prepare your Excel file to match the correct format
In order to import your competitions, you need to have or fit them to a certain format. You should download our sample file to see the exact format and the headers you should use.
If you want to see how easy it is to import all of your season's games, take a look at an example file of a soccer club senior group game plan for the year. Here is their file that's ready to be uploaded to Sportlyzer. Click here to download a filled in example file
Just some quick notes to make your upload to Sportlyzer successful:
- Please use the same headers as the sample file
- Each competition needs a start date
- If you use a start time you need to insert an end time as well
- Competition name is also required
- You can use any location name, but try to use the correct address
Now that you have your Excel file in a suitable format, you will learn how to upload your file.
How to upload your file to Sportlyzer
- Go to the Calendar page and click on “Add”.
- Select “Import competitions”
- If you haven’t yet, download the sample file and transform your Excel to match with our format

- Add coaches, groups or individual players who will automatically be invited to all competitions, which you just uploaded.
NB! If you have multiple teams or groups, please create separate files for each group and upload them one-by-one. This way it will be easier for you to link each competition to the correct group.
