You can import games from a CSV file using the requirements of formatting the file to ensure a successful import. The Game Import feature supports the importing of games that have been generated by SportsEngine to allow users to edit dates, times, and locations of existing games outside of the SportsEngine HQ tool.
Note: Teams must be assigned to Divisions and Stages must be created first before games can be imported.
