Affiliate teams

What is an affiliate team?
An affiliate team is a second team that Pavilion members are allowed to operate. Affiliate teams are completely independent to a manager's main team.

What rules/restrictions are enforced?
- the affiliate team must be created in a different country to your main team
- you cannot transfer players between your main team and your affiliate team
- you are not allowed to transfer your affiliate team to another country (ie via the "Transfer Countries" link on your home page), so please choose the country for your affiliate team very carefully
**NOTE: an affiliate team will have the opportunity to transfer to any new country that is created in the future (eg Canada or Netherlands), but not to an already existing one.

How much does it cost?
- you must be a Pavilion member in order to create an affiliate team
- it costs 100 credits per year to manage an affiliate team

When can I create my affiliate team?
- the admin team are in the process of testing affiliate teams, and I am madly fixing any bugs that crop up
- at this stage I'm hoping to make affiliate teams available on Monday December 5

What happens to my affiliate team if my Pavilion membership expires?
- although you need to be a Pavilion member to create an affiliate team, you do not lose your affiliate team should your Pavilion membership expire
- you will however lose your affiliate team if you dont extend its life after 12 months by paying an additional 100 credits (keep in mind that 12 months Pavilion membership also gives you 100 credits)

Can I ever make my affiliate team my 'main' team
No

Can I organise a friendly match between my main team and my affiliate team?
Yes

How do I create an affiliate team?
Once the feature has been released, you use the 'Create Affiliate Team' link on your club page

How do I switch between managing my main and affiliate team?
On your club page there is a 'manage' link that allows you to switch between teams

What division(s) will my affiliate team be in?
- For the purposes of league placement, affiliate teams are treated the same as new teams, so they will be placed in the lower divisions.

Other details
- your affiliate team will have a separate set of bookmarks to your main team
- your main team and affiliate team receive separate 'you have been challenged', 'you have been outbid', 'you have been invited to a friendly comp' messages.
- your affiliate team has a separate transfer agent and talent scout to your main team
