In this article we will explain how to create competition format with groups and subgroups and how to add games correctly.
1. Select the season and click Create-> Group button. Fill in all requested information and click Save. The first level of the competition format (Group) will appear. In our example it has Stage 1 name.
2. Select the newly created group and click Create-> Group button. Fill in all requested information and click Save. The second level of the competition format (Subgroup) will appear. Repeat it for all subgroups. In our example subgroups have Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 4 names.
3. Use arrows if you want to change the sequence of the subgroups.
Note! It is not mandatory and sequence in FO doesn't affect any other Genius Sports tools neither appear in any front-end soft. It is for more comfortable, logic usage of FO internally.
4. Make sure games are created under the lowest level - in this case games can be added ONLY under subgroups (Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 4). Any game created in the main group (Stage 1) will not have Match Keys generated.
