Quicker way to add fixtures
The software needs a quicker way to add multiple fixtures at the same time rather than having to set them up individually. A simple table with multiple rows including date, home team, away team, competition would be perfect. Upon submitting the data, the single event pages auto generate.

Really wish this was a feature, as the client who we site working on current solution already does this, we were told today, considering I purchased pro I really hoped this kind of feature would be included.

Thanks for your votes and comments on this idea! We just released SportsPress v2.1 which includes a new, simplified Fixtures Importer. We recommend using LeagueLobster (http://scheduler.leaguelobster.com/sportspress/) to generate the CSV files, then import them using this new import tool.

the pro version of sportspress should have this function!

i also agree that this makes fundamentally sound since for such a plugin
Yes it would. Our federation issue fixtures on a single row in a spreadsheet with date,time,home team, away team, age group etc. Would be so much easier if we didn't have to split this into two rows per fixture
I have made some excel sheet to easily import those fixtures... It would be great if they add some option to use Berger's tables (its been used on Balkan for over decades), more here (french: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_de_Berger). I suggested that here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/import-csv-events-for-soccer?replies=1 but noone responded...
I still have xls, which is a good thing, but I hope that this comes in future!
Yes, would save lots of work.
same ... its too cumbersome if you have lots of teams!

Yes. That would be a welcom new addition to you nice plugin.
We have several leagues, with more than 100 teams. To set up the fixtures manually is horrible.
We try to do it with CSV import - but if we get no solution soon, we have to change the software - what we do not want.

So, I have a pool league with 30 teams in, each playing each other twice over the season. 15 matches every week.
Currently I have to manually create the Events, or CSV import which isn't really any quicker. Would it not be fairly straightforward to add the ability to auto-generate the events / fixtures based on a few selections?
ie, you choose the teams involved, or competition, choose how many times to play each other, choose dates, hit generate, BANG - all the events for the season created.
Then all you'd need to do as a league manager is enter the results each week.
