Manage the sports schedule in Google Calendar
You can make some changes to the sports programs you add. For example, you can show only this calendar, hide the calendar, and change its color.
Show only the schedule
Maybe you just want to see the sports schedule on your Google Calendar.
On the main Google Calendar screen, go to Other Calendars in the side menu. Click it three points that appear when you place your cursor over the calendar. Then choose Show this only.
If you want to temporarily hide the calendar from your calendar, you can do so without deleting it. Go to Other Calendars in the side menu and uncheck the box for the sports calendar.
Change the color of the event
When you add one or more sports calendars, the match or match colors (calendar events) are colored by default. But you can make them any color you like. This is great for using team colors or making them stand out in your other events.
Click it three points next to the sports calendar in the Other calendars section of the side menu. Then choose your color or click the plus sign to add a custom color.
Delete a sports calendar
If you decide to later unsubscribe from a sports calendar rather than hiding it, you can easily remove it in one of the following two ways.
The fastest way is to click on the X to the right of the calendar under Other Calendars in the menu.
Otherwise, click on the three points next to the calendar below Other calendars in the side menu and choose Settings. Scroll down on the right side under Delete Calendar and click unsubscribe.
Manage the sports program in the mobile application
Although you cannot currently add or remove a sports calendar in the Google Calendar mobile app, you can view it and make some changes.
Open Google Calendar on your mobile device and tap the menu top left icon. Check the box next to the sports calendar to display it. And obviously, to hide it later, uncheck the box.
Change the color of the event or add notifications
To choose a different color for games or matches, or to set up notifications, open the menu and press Settings. Select the sport schedule from the list and make your adjustments on the Edit Schedule screen.
