A six team league to play a 20 game schedule 2015-10-19
From Kelly:
Hi there. Some of your posts are close, but my problem is evening out the home and away games. We have 6 teams in our league and we are going to play a 20 game schedule, playing everyone 4 times. We will play Fridays and Saturdays, each weekend. Of course the ideal would be to have each team have a home and an away game each weekend, but I realize that is impossible, but I would like it as close as possible. Any help would be much appreciated!! We also were considering opening with a home and away - Friday then Saturday with the same teams. Then carrying on with playing everyone else and then possibly finishing up with the same home and home
