Primary Club FAQs

What is Primary Club?  

Primary club is the idea that every player in Footyweb has one club that holds their registration and so that player can only play for that club until they get permitted or transferred to another club.    

What happens if a player gets permitted?  

If the player gets permitted from their Primary Club the player's primary club does not change, but they are able to play for the club they were permitted to.    

What happens if a player gets transferred?  

If a player gets transferred from their Primary Club the player's primary club will change to the club that he or she is transferring to.    

What happens if a players does not have a primary club set?  

If a player does not have a primary club set they will not be able to be transferred or permitted.  You can only be transferred or permitted if you have a primary club set. If a player does not have a primary club set they will still be able to added to a team sheet for either club, and will still show up in reports for both clubs.  

How is primary club set?  

The primary club script will be run over the player records.  If the player has two club records then the script will choose the primary club for each player based on the most recent active player status (when the player was last marked as a player in the club).  If that status is the same date then the player will be placed in the list of players for League/State/National Administrators to manually assign a primary club.    

Ongoing, an overnight script will run to pick up all new players and give them a primary club.    

What happens when a primary club is set?  

When the primary club is set and the player will become active in the selected club and will be marked as inactive in the unselected club.
