How does the home team load a game?


Side Note: Round Robin or Simultaneous Multi-Team games
The Host (Home Field) Team is responsible for entering the games that they are playing. They are also responsible for assigning the home team for non-host or third party games and instructing those home teams to enter those other game into the system.

Example (Note that each team takes turns as the Home Team):

Home: Host Team vs. Opponent: Visitor A – Host team enters this game
Home: Visitor A vs. Opponent: Visitor B – Visitor A team enters this game
Home: Visitor B vs. Opponent: Host Team – Host team enters this game

or for a 4 team Round Robin (Note that each team takes turns as the Home Team):

Home: Visitor A vs Opponent: Visitor B - Visitor A enters this game
Home: Host Team vs Opponent: Visitor A - Host team enters this game
Home: Visitor B vs Opponent: Visitor C - Visitor B enters this game
Home: Visitor C vs Opponent: Host Team - Host team enters this game
