2. Manage Sports Page
On this page, you will set up your sports and organization. A sport would be something like "Soccer" and an organization would be "Bundesliga". An organization belongs to a sport.
First you must create your sport. So click on “Add new” at the top of this page and you would type “Soccer” and keep the drop down as “--Root--”. This will create the sport “Soccer”. It will be an option added to the “Sport” dropdown on the whole website.
Now you must create an organization that belongs to that sport. In this example, you would type “Bundesliga” and select “Soccer” from the drop down. Now, you have created an organization under a sport.

Note: it should be applied not just for organization, but for sport too.
