If your club is re-planning its tournament with regard to Covid-19 then ClubTournament.co.uk may help you to manage communicating with your attendees. In addition to team managers, your attendees include parents and players that will want to plan ahead. Some will be interested in your tournament status – whether Rescheduled, Postponed or Cancelled. You can use ClubTournament.co.uk to manage each of these situations differently.
Differences between Rescheduled, Postponed and Cancelled
- A Rescheduled tournament has a new date decided with no change to other detail. You are very keen to get more enquiries lined up from Team Managers and you can use ClubTournament.co.uk website to spread the word. Your rescheduled date is seen by other tournament organisers, which has a secondary benefit to help avoid unintentional clashes. As other local tournaments get rescheduled, many will have flexibility to swap age groups between Saturday or Sunday if they see your plan. It’s in no-one’s interest to schedule a local clash for any age group after all. One note – you can’t reschedule a tournament into next season because age groups will change and so a separate advert will be required.
- A Postponed tournament isn’t going ahead on the original date, but a new date is undecided. You welcome Team Managers to enquire so you can contact them very quickly when the date is set. The tournament is labelled Postponed on ClubTournament.co.uk with the original date shown for the moment.
- A Cancelled tournament will not run this summer at all. You’ll want to use ClubTournament.co.uk as part of your communication to the football community in a professional way to help encourage return visits next year. You expect very few (if any) new enquiries before next season.
During the Covid-19 outbreak there is no charge for amending the status of adverts, or for rescheduling tournaments up to the new season which should be underway by the end of September 2020. Tournament Directors are asked to get in contact and we’ll take care of updating tournament adverts on this site. We have directly emailed Tournament Directors with guidance on how to do this and also how to access contact details for team managers that enquired about their tournament.
When a tournament runs (or if we aren’t contacted) then its advert will automatically expire on the originally advertised date, as normal.
Let’s all hope to be playing football again soon.
