Basic Information

This is the first page you will see after creating your competition and the first page on the MANAGE screens. It is here that all the initial information regarding your competition can be input and edited.

This screen is quite long and not all the information will be relevant. Just pay attention to the sections listed below and the rest can be ignored. The page is due to be redesigned shortly (written 22/12/2021).
