Soccer League Creator

Filed Under Soccer, Sports | 55 Comments

After 3 years of creating some major European league competition template for excel with the same layout, I thought about making new ones with more features, for example, add information about any teams previous matches, display any team matches in calendar form, etc. And, while thinking of re-designing the layout, there was an idea to make a tool which can be used to generate any soccer league tournament or to be used to map any of league competition around the world. And this Soccer League Creator Template for excel is a result of those thoughts. With this tool, I can easily create those Italian Serie A, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, French Ligue 1 and Dutch Eredivisie without touching the codes inside excel. And if you run your own soccer league, either real soccer competition or just playstation soccer competition, this tool will simplify your matches arrangement process.  You can speed up the process by entering your custom parameters, for example, points value for win, lose and draw, season start date, matches cycle (from daily until biweekly), team names, etc, and this tool will do the rest.

This tool also suitable for you who want to map your country or local league competition. Use the Soccer League Creator without fixtures generator version, and you can easily map your competition manually. There are some European League competition samples that you can download in this site to see how this tool works. But remember, you are not allowed to map any league competition under England FA, such as Premier League, or within Great Britain territory since you have to pay for a license to map those fixtures.

There are several features that you can find in this tool,

> League Competition Dashboard <
– Monitor current standings
– Monitor progress rank of the top 4 teams in standings
– See the next and previous matches based on today’s date
– See the home and away team biggest win

> Accommodate until 36 Teams <
It can accommodate 6 – 36 teams (Lite version only accommodate until 10 teams).

> Full/Half Competition Selection <

> More Detail Individual Team Information <

– See all team matches and results in table view
– See the standings weekly progress in chart view
– Add non league competition where each team participated
– See all team matches in one year calendar in calendar view
And with its default one-page layout, you can easily see, print and distribute this information among teams who participate in this competition.

> Custom Season Calendar <
Visualize all team matches in one year calendar, and add holidays consideration to re-arrange any matches to suit your available time.

> 8 Tie-Breaker Choices <
There are 8 tie-breaker choices derived from 9 tie-breaker options

9 Tie-breaker options are:
1 – All Matches – Highest Point
2 – All Matches – Better Goal Difference
3 – All Matches – Better Goals Scored
4 – All Matches – Better Away Goals Scored
5 – Team Concerned Matches – Highest Point
6 – Team Concerned Matches – Better Goal Difference
7 – Team Concerned Matches – Better Goals Scored
8 – Team Concerned Matches – Better Away Goals Scored
9 – Manual Re-Rank Based On Fair Play Calculation, Head-to-Head Matches, Drawing of Lots

Those 9 tie-breakers options will be combined into 8 choices as follows :
1 – 1,2,3 (team position will follow rule number 1, then 2, then 3)
2 – 1,2,3,9
3 – 1,2,3,5,6,7
4 – 1,2,3,5,6,7,9
5 – 1,3,5,7,8,4
6 – 1,3,5,7,8,4,9
7 – 1,5,6,2,3,4,7
8 – 1,5,6,2,3,4,7,9

> Automatic Fixtures Generator <

> Flexible Match Dates Cycle <
There are 5 match dates cycle you can select. You can set time between matches from daily, twice a week, three times a week, weekly until biweekly.

> Group Position Marking Colors <
You can easily mark and group team which qualify for certain tournaments or relegated to lower division

> Points Value Customization <
You can set different points value for home and away win, draw and lose.

> More Detail Matches Worksheet <

There are useful information available in matches worksheet, besides dates, team names and score boxes, that you can use to evaluate your team performance. Those are last 5 matches, current standings, and previous head-to-head meetings.

> Rescheduled Matches Worksheet <
There is a reschedule matches worksheet that you can use to monitor any rescheduled matches.

    please help me!

    You don’t need a password to run the tool, except you plan to modify the layout.

    Best regards

    i want to modify some things…please give me the password

  5. Musadya on August 26th, 2012 4:49 pm

    I think I will separate password for some worksheets. But, it is still not free. Just give 1 day to separate those passwords and I will inform you again. Thanks

  6. Janette Cassar on August 27th, 2012 8:02 am

    I am planning on buying this version, I am just decided between the fixtures generation one and the one without the fixtures generation.

    Can you please specify what is the difference?


  7. Musadya on August 27th, 2012 8:16 am

    Hi Janette,

    When you buy the full version, you will get both with and without fixtures generator.

    The one with fixtures generator will generate all matches automatically, once you finished typing all parameters in setup worksheet. It is more suitable if you are running your own league.

    The without fixtures generator will need you to fill all matches date, time and team manually in matches worksheet, where you have to do this in every worksheet. It is more suitable for you who plan to map existing league which already being scheduled.


  8. Janette Cassar on August 27th, 2012 10:28 am

    Hi Musadya,

    Thanks a lot for answering. Yes indeed I just purchased the full version, however I need to make some further modifications to the league I am creating, but all sheets are locked.

    How do I get the password?

  9. Musadya on August 27th, 2012 1:57 pm

    Hi Janette,

    Thank you for buying the full version. All people who bought the Pro version are asking password for customization :) where they eager to pay to get the password. I’ve just put a paypal button for buying a password which will make you to do further customization. Remember to make a backup of your file, in case you break some formula while you’re working in unprotected worksheets.


  10. Musadya on August 27th, 2012 2:00 pm

    @ Anonymous: The password is already available to be bought. You can proceed by following the paypal button for password. But, you need to re-download the file again using the same link given in the notification email. Thanks.

  11. Janette Cassar on August 27th, 2012 2:31 pm

    thanks a lot! I just bought the password and it works perfectly now :) fully customised hehe :)

    thanks once again

  12. Joshua on August 29th, 2012 6:14 pm

    using italian version of office the data of the week is not reported…report error “ddd”, probably
    you have to modify that formula.
    Other question on file “about” the version indicate 1.96????

    best regards

  13. Musadya on August 30th, 2012 12:19 am

    Hi Joshua,

    Noted. I will find another formula which will eliminate the problem if it is used with different language version of Excel. The “ddd” is the custom format which use the first letter of “day” in English version. In Italy it should be “ggg” where g is the first letter of “giorno”. I will post the newest one within a week.

    All European League templates are built upon Soccer League Creator version 1.96. The features in that version is enough for building the European League competition. The newest version for the Soccer League Creator Pro is 2.11.


  14. Jerome on September 6th, 2012 7:17 pm

    sorry but can you please put a link to download on exel 2003 ? would highly appreciate if you do so. Thanks

  15. Chris on September 8th, 2012 12:00 am

    I downloaded Soccer League Creator Pro 2.11 however I’m having trouble doing leagues which are 10 or 12 teams for example where the teams play each other more than twice – in your spreadsheet the formula is just for playing one another at home and away so therefor would be far shorter than I need.

    Can you help?

  16. Dave on September 13th, 2012 7:01 pm

    I have tried the Lite programme and it is excellent, except the fixtures are a little strange. Some teams play 5 or more consecutive away games (or home games) – does the Pro programme space out the fixtures to be more even? Can a tie break option be a head to head one? Also on the Dashboard can the bottom right space be used to record say cup ties?
    I assume the pro password programme only needs to be bought if you intend changing the current set system?

  17. Honeybees on September 15th, 2012 6:11 pm


    I bought the pro version and I found some bugs in it:

    1, The chart view in Team info tab: only the first team can show a full chart, the other teams only show a 12-week chart

    2, The calendar view in Team info tab: sometimes it shows incorrect marks in the calendar

    3. The weekly standing table always ranks by point > overall GD > overall GS, no matter what tie breaker regulations I choose.

    4. The chart in dashboard always disappears when I save my inputs! (although it’ll be back next time I open the file)

  18. Musadya on September 15th, 2012 10:47 pm

    @Jerome: I am sorry that this template doesn’t have 2003 version due to its conditional formatting limitation on that version
    @Chris: The fixtures generator doesn’t support more than two matches at this time, but you can do it manually. Could you send me an email about your specific needs, so I can assist you to make that customization. Thanks.
    @Dave: The Pro version still have the same fixtures arrangement, but I plan to make a balanced round matches in the next update. And about dashboard or week matches customization, you can do it by yourself if you bought the password :). Thanks.

  19. Musadya on September 15th, 2012 11:03 pm

    Dear Honeybees,

    Thank you for your feedback. Please find my answers as follows:
    1. Noted. I’ve checked the chart and I found an incorrect reference in the chart. I will correct it and send an update email so you can download the new version.
    2. Could you give me an example? If the markers automatically adjusted, it could be caused by a slow process in Excel which made the updating process not done as soon as you update the value.
    3. You are correct. The weekly standing table won’t follow the tie breaker method, since the tie-breaker method only applied in the last matches, and displayed in Dashboard and Full standing table only. I will put a notification in the file guidance worksheet.
    4. Basically, that is a Microsoft Excel 2007/2010 bug :). You can google about this chart topic since many Excel users are having the same issues while working with Charts. But, you don’t have to close and open the file to reveal the chart, just scroll down or right to make the chart out of your screen display and scroll it back again and you will see your chart is appeared again.


  20. Honeybees on September 16th, 2012 4:51 am

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    Here’s an example for the incorrect marker, please check it out:
    Week 1, match#1, date 3/12/2012, team5 (H) 3-2 team1(A)
    When switching to calendar view, you’ll see both teams have a red “12” with a green frame.

  21. Musadya on September 17th, 2012 3:25 pm

    @Honeybees: Thank you for your correction. It is fixed now. I will send a new download link in one day.
    @Dave: I have updated the new version to have more balance home and away matches.

  22. Honeybees on September 17th, 2012 4:27 pm

    Dear Musadya,

    Your feedback is super fast! Yet the chart-view issue looks unresolved. Now every team (expect team 1) has a fixed 70-week chart regardless the length of the season.

  23. Musadya on September 21st, 2012 3:07 pm

    Hi Honeybees,

    I have updated it again. The chart is fixed now. You can download it from the same link and try it again. Let me know if you still found some errors.


  24. Honeybees on September 21st, 2012 3:34 pm

    @Musadya: The download link has expired…..

  25. Musadya on September 22nd, 2012 3:33 pm

    @Honeybees: Try to reply the update email that I’ve sent to all SLC Pro buyers, so I can activate it again. Thanks.

  26. Dave on September 22nd, 2012 5:47 pm

    Musadya, many thanks for the response and the updated programme – the fixture query has been sorted and I have now downloaded the password – let’s have some fun now.
    Can’t wait to experiment with different leagues (including some fantasy ones) and the ever changing league table on the same page is immense. Cheers.

  27. Honeybees on September 24th, 2012 5:55 am

    I found some minor errors in v2.26 when creating a league with 11 teams, which means there’s always a team going for a bye in each week. There should be 22 rounds for the whole season and each team should play 20 matches.

    Now for the team having a bye in the 1st round, the calendar view shows nothing but “###”s. Also the weekly chart views of every team consist only 20 weeks, which means the standing curve in week 21 and 22 cannot be shown.

    For the tie breaker regulation, is it possible to add one option – 1 5 6 7 2 3, as used in Spain La Liga?

  28. Musadya on September 27th, 2012 1:03 pm

    @Honeybees: Thanks. That is a very sharp observation. I missed to modify week chart reference for odd number of teams. I will update it and inform you soon. About the tie-breaker regulation, modify the current regulation is easier than add more regulation. Because I have to reconstruct all table formulas to accommodate one more regulation. And I need more spare time to do it. I will think about it. Regards.

  29. Dave on September 27th, 2012 7:22 pm

    Aaagh! I have put in all the detail for a 24 team league and have played a match. However when I want to click on a team (to see their full fixtures)or to advance a week or a date to view a set of games I get: Microsoft has identified a potential Security Concern (Hyperlinks may be unsafe). It asks if “I want to continue” and even though I say yes it says it “can not open specified file”.
    Any ideas please – I have a password.

  30. Musadya on September 27th, 2012 11:42 pm

    @Dave: If you have renamed the file, try also to replace the filename in setup worksheet, including its extension. It should fixed your problem :). Let me know if you still have a problem. Regards

  31. Dave on September 28th, 2012 9:14 am

    Musadya, Silly me – you have probably mentioned this before to others. Have done what you say and it is working fine. Many thanks – it is a brilliant programme.
    I have bought the password and just need to work out where to use it – but I will perservere as I don’t intend changing much, if anything.

  32. Honeybees on September 30th, 2012 8:54 pm

    Musadya, I find another minor error.
    In the weekly progress chart, sometimes the annotation for the result in round 24 goes wrong. (e.g. a W for a loss or a L for a win)

  33. Charis on October 11th, 2012 7:08 am


    Is there any way to change the dates? for example i want to have weekly basis games but every three weeks i want to have off…is it possible?
    i have the lite version but i am planning to buy the pro version. thanks

  34. ukijo on October 26th, 2012 9:27 pm

  35. Steve on November 12th, 2012 8:53 am


    Can I please ask what the upgrade policy on this? If I buy the full version (and the password) am I entitled to any upgrades?

    Many thanks

  36. Dave on November 13th, 2012 9:15 pm

    Musadya has explained earlier that the miserable bunch at the EPL (the “Greed is Good League”) won’t allow the fixture list to be used in any game/setup without a fee being paid.

  37. Dave on November 13th, 2012 9:16 pm

    I have bought the password and would like to ask if it is possible to:

  38. Dave on November 13th, 2012 9:24 pm

    I have bought the password and would like to ask if it is possible to:
    1 Change the “last 5 results” that show up in the weekly fixture list to allow times (and/or scorers) of goals – I have a system to replay a whole set of fixtures all at once – instead of a game at a time – and this would record all the details.
    2 Can the team league standings – as shown in the weekly fixture list be altered to put in half times instead?
    This is a brilliant spreadsheet and well worth paying for the full set up, believe me. I have had great fun downloading the various Leagues (and sometimes changing them to suit local amateur and junior associations) and playing matches with my system.

  39. Daz on November 17th, 2012 2:06 pm

    I have purchased the file and the password but the password does not allow me to edit the league reference and dummy sheets which i need to adjust for my use. Please advise.

    Hi Musadya

    I am the Match secretary for an association is South Africa. We have about 20 Leagues.

    Is there a facility whereby the system detects a clash of fixtures for teams that use the same stadium?



  43. Mads Gottler on January 18th, 2013 10:23 pm


    I’ve just bought the sheet, and I have filled in my data and team names etc. Now I am not allowed to jump between the weeks – I’m getting a message that the file cannot be opened. Can you help me?

    Best regards

    on the setup table i have put 1,2,3,9 for tie breaker regulation but i dont have the re-rank column on the standings table. Please answer me as soon as possible because is emergency

    Kind regards

  45. Ash on January 21st, 2013 8:34 am


    I’m reading many good things about the pro version but want to check a few things first.

    I see above somebody said that some team get a bunch of home games in a row and they wanted a more even draw.

    – It seems you have answered that and have fixed the problem but in the light version which I am trailing some of my teams are scheduled to play nine home games in a row. Is this because the lite version is not the latest version

    – as per another user, am I covered for updates after I buy

    – I am trying to transpose this to Australian football. Is there any chance you could write an option for set where the user can choose between GD or % for the standings table (% is For / Against * 100)

    – can it set up to play a season culminating in a “final series” ? This is what we do here in Australia (even for soccer)

    – finally and most importantly, when using the trial version (lite) when I go to save, excel displays “a significant amount of functional errors” there is a lengthy scroll bar with about 50 errors and will not allow me to save as is. If I choose to save then nothing works next time I open. I have tried saving as over 10 file extensions. I have windows XP on one computer and Windows 7 on another and both have Excel 2007.

  47. Musadya on January 31st, 2013 10:20 am

    @Charis :
    Re-rank cells will be shown in standings worksheet only when the score is typed in matches worksheet and there is more than one team are sharing the same points, goals difference and goals scored.

    Hello Im currently in charge of keeping the standings for a league that has 4 divisions. I dont need the fixture generator. What program would you best recommend?

  49. Chris Horner on March 7th, 2013 3:58 pm

    I’ve discovered another small flaw, if you choose a half competition when you go to the ‘Team Info’ sheet only the first half the teams show up at the top. Though you can use the arrows underneath to scroll across to the remaining teams info.

    Though it’s a very small flaw in an otherwise brilliant league table generator spreadsheet.
