Yes. If your team is listed multiple times in the rankings you will likely need to submit a merge request in order to consolidate the accounts. This can be done by using the Account Merge tool from your team account.
Please note, a fee of $25 is associated with each merge request.
Additional information about Team Merge requests.
1) I manage two teams and I want to merge the account for my other team with this account.
You cannot use one team account to manage two teams. Each team must have their own team account. If you are managing two teams please create a GotSoccer Universal account. This will link together all your GotSoccer accounts, including your manager, coach, referee, or team accounts.
You can create a GotSoccer Universal account from the GotSoccer login page. Please select User Login in the top right corner of the page then select the tab labeled Universal Account on the left side of the page.
2) My team has recently merged with another team in the rankings. Can we combine the records for these teams?
Absolutely not. This would be combining the efforts of 32 players when every other team in the rankings only had 18 players - no one else had the chance to play in the same event twice last season. We generally ask that you use the history for the team that you have the most players from, but if you prefer to use the higher ranked history that's fine - so long as no other team has 1/2 or more players from that roster. In the end - you can only choose one!!
3) My team has recently split up and two teams were formed from the players. Who gets to keep the points?
We award those points to the team that meets the following requirements:
- Their current roster has at least 50% of the players from the team in question
- The players from the team that has split up make up at least 50% of their current roster
- Their current roster has at least 60% of the players.
If there's a very close split we will also take into consideration when the players were added to the previous roster and how that relates to the points in question. For example, if a few players who are now contributing to the current roster were added to the previous one in May, but all the points accumulated were from events held earlier in the season, we will not consider them as part of the roster when making the decision.
The coach is not considered a player. The coach is only taken into consideration in the event of an even split, with both teams having 50% of the original players. The points would go with the team that also kept the coach. If the coach is no longer with either team then neither of the teams will receive the history.
If no team is eligible for points then neither team will keep the points.
4) My team has moved to a new club & is playing under a different team name. Can we keep the points from our previous events?
Yes. The requirements are the same for this situation as they are for a team split-up situation (please see roster requirements listed for #3 for details). While we realize the vital role that a club plays in their teams' accomplishments, the rankings points & history are awarded to the players who were on the field for those events. If a team retains the required 50-60% of players, then they are eligible for the rankings points and history.
5) My team played under multiple team names this season and they are listed separately in the rankings. Can we combine those points?
Yes, but only if the rosters used in those events have an overlap of at least 85% - meaning 85% of the roster used in both events must be the same. Depending on the amount of points involved with your merge request we may require that you submit documentation showing your official roster and the roster used in those events. Also, keep in mind that merging event points for past events is not as simple as just adding the two point totals together. Our staff will need to backdate all points for both teams and modify the deductions for those events based on that. We will also modify the bonus points awarded when applicable.
