SYNCHRONIZEThe best option is to use the iCal synchronize URL which will automatically update your external calendar on a periodic basis. You can use the iCal URL options available at the top of your Game Schedule page to synchronize your schedule with an outside calendar program like Outlook, Google Calendar or iCalendar.

GOOGLE CALENDARIf you're using Google Calendar or an Android device, we recommend using the Google Calendar Synchronize option located under the Synchronize tab within your Personal Profile. If you're using an iPhone or iPad device, you can refer to this support article for specific instructions to synchronize to those devices.
DOWNLOADING CALENDAR FILE
Downloading a calendar file is an older method for exporting to an external calendar program. We only recommend using this if your external calendar program does not support live synchronizing. These days, most calendar programs support live synchronizing including Android, Google, iPhone, iPad, Yahoo, Outlook and many others so you should try to use the synchronize option first. To download an iCal calendar file, click on the iCal download link to download an exported ICS file. Save the file somewhere on your local machine (desktop recommended) where you can find it again later and use this file to perform a one-time Import operation in your external calendar program.
If you're using the download option, do not just click on the file to open it. you will next need to import your downloaded file. To do this, open Outlook, and using the menu bar at the top navigate to "File" then "Import and Export..." From the new window, select "Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar file (.vcs)" In the next window, browse your local machine to the file that was downloaded. Select the file, and click Open. Your games will now populate into your MS Outlook calendar for you to view. Make sure to perform the import process and do not simply open the file. Opening the file will not populate all your games and will usually only open the first game in the file. This process is not a live link and only a one-time import. We recommend using the synchronization option for live synchronizing.
