Team Control Panels

The Team Control Panel gives the ability to input team and roster information for home and away teams, as well as save that information to use at a later date. Using the Team Control Panel allows the use of many overlays, such as starting lineup, without the stress of inputting each player’s information at the start of the game. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will be utilizing soccer graphics.
