Just wondering how others on here handle it when opposition clubs decide to change their club name?
Noting our database is setup in single club mode.
When recently adding some matches from years ago to our database and finding a new opposition club I hadn’t really thought about it much and just added the new club, but then after finding some old Association year books and in them found some articles indicating some clubs that I thought were new clubs were actually still the same club having simply changed their club name.
So I was wondering do you:
Have the the one “club” name setup but then have 2 different “team” names associated with the club using each of the club names - this would enable to report against each team but also the one club
Just have the seperate club names with their respective team names like I have been previously doing - this would have each club and team reported separately
On top of this what do you do with club mergers? Once again I’ve just created a new club each time and keep it separated from the previous merged clubs.
