 +====== Copying a league ======
 +===== Start a new season by copying the old one =====
 +In most leagues the teams don't change much from year to year so, rather than start from scratch and enter all the team names and team players, we've provided a method to copy the data from year to year. Hopefully this will save some work.
 +To access this, click on the copy icon by the league you want to copy in the List of Leagues and confirm that you wish to continue. It'll take a moment or two and then you'll see your new league listed at the bottom of the list. You still have some work to do, though.
 +  - The league name will be copied verbatim so you will probably want to change that to rename the year.
 +  - Promotion and relegation are not handled for you, so you will have to go through each division and click the promote/​relegate icons by the teams you want to move. **Note:** promoting a team will move them to the next higher division in the list but if you have a more complex set-up with split divisions this might not be where you want them to go. For example, if you have divisions called Division 1, Division 2 North and Division 2 South, then a team promoted from Division 2 South will have to be promoted to Division 2 North and then promoted again to Division 1.
 +  - Teams can be deleted by clicking on the red cross by the team name.
 +  - Teams can be added by the [[lms:​setting-up#​add_new_team|usual method]].
 +  - And changes to team captains will need to be corrected. The captains themselves can change the other personnel if this differs from last season.
 +Once this is done you'll be able to carry on just like the previous season.
