Competition SchemeCode
CONSTELLATION - GLOSSARY, TERMINOLOGY and NAMING CONVENTIONS
by John Jan Popovic

Competition SchemeCode is a scheduler convention that allows precise definition of the home/away sequence of encounters/games for the each teams in the league for every single round.

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

SchemeCode scheduler convention
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SchemeCode is a scheduler convention that allows immediate definition of the course of encounters/games among teams in the league for every single round. The unique slotNumber is associated to each team in the league/division.
SchemeCode is a two characters scheduler convention formed by: LETTER + NUMBER

The LETTER in the Scheme code is exclusively determined by the number of teams in the league.

LETTER:
X (2 teams),
Q (3/4 teams),
L (5/6 teams),
I (7/8 teams),
A (9/10 teams),
C (11/12 teams),
E (13/14 teams),
F (15/16 teams),
G (17/18 teams),
H (19/20 teams)
NUMBER: Code6 or code0 determine two complementary series of encounters/games. The 0-series and the 6-series of scheduler slots are differed from each other for a different and mutually complementary cadence of the pair of encounters Home/Away.

The competition Fixture Scheduler/Calendar
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fixture Calendar as an agenda with all matches of a Competition /Division.
The Calendars describe all championship matches: (Who plays, Where and When)
a) List of teams that compete against each other (the host club-team vs guest club-team),
b) List of Sports Fields venues,
c) Day when playing (day, date and time of the match)

SchemeCode is a scheduler convention that allows precise definition of the home/away sequence of encounters/games among teams in the league for every single round. The unique slotNumber is associated to each team in the league/division.

The 0-series and the 6-series of scheduler slots are differed from each other for a different but mutually complementary cadence of the pair of Home/Away encounters of all matches in the season.
For all constrained teams, the constrained SLOT POSITION number in the division roster, can be automatically calculated from the data defined in Constellation Graph.
