The Football Calendar defines the overall composition of the different Leagues that are being played throughout the season. Each Competition will have its own Football Calendar including the leagues associated with that Competition. If there are multiple leagues that share the same number of teams, play on the same weeks with the same finals' strategy, they can optionally share a League Composition. Any leagues that differ on these points will require their own Composition.

Competitions and Seasons must be created prior to setting up a Football Calendar.
