Creating a United event
Creating a United Event is very easy. An easy-to-use dialog system will assist you.
First you have to select what type of event you want to create. These three different types may be chosen:
- United Cup: Cup events can be created with different numbers of competitors. All cups will take place in the knock-out-system without return matches. If less than half of the maximum number of participants do register the event will be cancelled and the GU STARS are refunded.
- United League: League Events can be generated for a number of 4 up to 20 teams. A second leg may be played in all leagues up to 10 participants. If there are less registered clubs as the announced maximum number the event will be resized and the trophy will automatically be adjusted. As the GU STAR cost is dependent on the number of registered clubs there will be a refund in this case. If there are less than 4 teams the league will be cancelled completely.
- United Tournament: United tournaments are a combination of cups and leagues. They begin with a short phase in league mode, with the winners advancing to the knock-out phase.

(To create a 1on1 select the menu point "1on1")
Name - choose an individual Name for your Event
Number of Participants - the maximum number of participants
Hide event - non-public events cannot be found through the search nor can they be observed by other managers. Registration on private events is only possible through personal invitation of the host (You invite clubs through the club's contact page).
Password - if a password is entered a club cannot register for this public event without knowing the password
participate yourself - particapate as host
advanced settings - when this options is checked more options become available.
Advanced settings and filter
Only one of the following options can be selected at a time:
Ladder-Mode - to play for Ladder-Points
Handicap - to play with a Handicap. (A handicap is a good option to set when teams with different strengths play in the same event. It will even out the teams and give everyone a chance to win by choosing good formations and tactics.)
Additionally up to five “requirements for participation” can be set. The options are:
Filter by Strength
Filter by Country
Filter by Layer
Filter by Ladder-Points
Only teams that meet all set requirements can register for an event.
First you set if return matches are played. Leagues and tournaments allow this option.
Then you can select match dates by clicking them. It is possible to play a complete event in one day, or to spread it out over a longer time.
Finally the duration of the registration phase can be set (1-31 days). The deadline for registration and the date of the first match (at least 24 hours after the deadline) will be calculated accordingly. Also the date of the last match will be displayed.
Please note that a cup played with matches in an interval of 4 hours will only leave very little time for setting the formation between the matches. For that reason you may change your formation for all United Event matches until 30 minutes before the start of the match.
Here you see the costs for the event. United Cups do cost each participant 150 GU STARS, the charges for United Leagues depend on the number of match dates (less than 100 GU STARS per match). The number of match dates will be shown as well.
You can also select to pay the complete charges for the event, in that case the event is free for all other participants.
Lastly a brief description might be entered and the trophy checked, before finally creating the event. You just have to click the button that displays the costs.
You may participate in as many events per day and week as you like.
Simultaneous match dates are not a problem, as the live-ticker does display several matches at once.
