by John Jan Popovic

For the teams enrolled in some Competition category will be created a fixture calendar.
A competition category can have one or more divisions/groups - A, B, C, D...
Each team must have assigned:
- Unique competition category name
- SchemeCode of Fixture Calendar
- division/group - A, B, C, D...
- a slot-number: 1, 2, 3.., 20

Division, also sometimes League or Group
--------------------------------------------------------------
Often the number of teams enrolled in a Competition can be so great that it becomes impractical that teams play in a league all together (all - against - all).
For that reason the competitions are held in smaller groups, also called divisions.

When teams of a competition are divided into groups/divisions, in grouping the Constellation will respect the criterion of geographical proximity, or one can assign the the teams closest to each other to the one-same division, so the teams of the same geographical area will play in the same division/group, when possible.

So if in a league are recorded 151 such teams, the league you can play in 10 DIVISIONS with 16 TEAMS, and there will be present a BYE-team in nine divisions.
