The draft league format is one of the formats used to play competitive Pokemon.
The format focuses on the ability to counter team your opponent the best way possible.
Draft-League.nl is one of the tools available for leagues to organize and automate most of the processes needed to play the format.
Draft-League.nl wants to make draft leagues accessible to everyone so everyone can experience the format and have fun playing it.
Besides that, Draft-League.nl aims to become a reliable source for draft league related information over time.
Leagues: 306 || Seasons: 756 from which 647 completed and 109 active || Coaches: 5085 from which 2284 are currently active || Played matches: 68401
Draft-League.nl is created and managed by AutoMatthic.

Can my league use draft-league.nl?
Most of the time, yes! Draft-League.nl went public to help out other leagues and heir coaches by making their life easier while playing the game they like! There are a few things to consider though. Please be sure that the league won’t just straight up die after requesting to be added. A bunch of unfinished and/or death seasons looks bad for the statistics. For this reason, please be sure that the league will be reliable before reaching out.
When is the best time to start using draft-league.nl?
As of right now, it's only possible to add a league before the start of a season. Adding leagues post draft does cost a lot more time that can be spend on other development or support related things. For this reason the decision has been made to only add new leagues prior to the draft. Of course you can always reach out in advance to get your league setup for the start of the season after. It is also possible to import past seasons which weren't played on Draft-League.nl (the amount of time this would require from you depends on how well those seasons have been documented).
How can I sign up my league for draft-league.nl?
You can use !newleague in the Draft-League.nl Discord server to obtain a document which explains the steps for adding a league to draft-league.nl. Be sure to carefully read through that (including the terms of service) and collect all the required information. Once you have done so, you can send a DM on Discord to AutoMatthic#8444 (please be sure you send a DM, don't @ me in chats for this) with all the information and assuming there are no issues, most leagues are setup within 1 and 2 days (weekends excluded). Because I have other obligations as well and I get a solid amount of messages a day, it can sometimes take a bit of time for me to get back to you but I will always try to get back to people as soon as possible. If you have any questions about something in the setup doc, you can ofc reach out in a Discord DM as well.
Do I have to pay to use draft-league.nl?
Currently, the website is free to use after for everyone I grant permission to use it and also doesn't have ads. However, developing and maintaining the website does cost time and money. For this reason, you can choose to support through Patreon. Doing so is completely optional and won't gain you access to special features or things like that. Players/leagues who choose to support through Patreon will however be given priority when they want to setup a league or need any support. Never support with money that isn't yours, or money you need to financially support yourself. Since any amount helps, you can become a Patreon for only $1 a month and you can cancel it every month.
