You can copy an iCal link from your ClubZap app to synchronise all your ClubZap events scheduled for your team(s) with your calendar. An iCalendar link, often shortened to “an iCal”, is a link to another calendar. iCal is an open standard for exchanging calendar and scheduling information between users and computers.

Subscribing to an iCal calendar, doesn’t add events to any existing calendar on your device, but rather creates a brand new calendar that your can choose to show or hide in your calendar app.

You can add an iCal link to pretty much synchronise with any calendar program, such as Google Calendar, Apple Calendar or Microsoft Outlook.
