IMPORTANT: For those teams entering the Intermediate Premier League this announcement is for you!

ALL Players must be registered in Sports TG (where you register the team) by 9th May 2018.

Why? IPL teams will be given full use of the GloryLeagues app, this includes videos of each game and a scoring system done on an Ipad which will track players stats. Players will be able to watch their game tapes, create highlight reels and share them with family and friends. GL is also a great tool for coaches to look at workons.
