At Tradition Sports Online we are here to add that layer of connectivity and accountability that all good online leagues need in order to thrive. Our goal is to put the best tools into the best hands, our members, and let them build their communities, rivalries and ultimately their own online coaching experience. If being a part of something more than just a league, more than just a game, appeals to your sports gaming senses, you may have found a home.
In order to become a member of our community please head on over to our forums and register. If you are interested in taking part in any of our leagues, visit the Getting Started thread in the New Member’s Lounge. Everything is explained there!
Once your application is approved, you will be able to upgrade your account to a premier membership if you want. Tradition Sports Online will always be a free site to come and find a great sim community, but we have found the requirements to facilitate, police and create a home like this are demanding and in order to deliver the best experience online that you can get, we offer the opportunity to the community to help us keep the ship afloat (so to speak).
You can purchase a subscription in the control panel of your forum account. The membership options here at TSO look like this.
(**Please read up on the Tradition Ranking System that we are currently in development on. It’s going to be an awesome deal.**)

We will have a sponsorship forum for individuals who can’t afford the $12 for the year, where other TSO members can sponser these guys for the year by paying thier membership. I would expect that sponsorships would be given based on that persons history and activity at Tradtion Sports Online. Please don’t be offended if nobody sponsors you… this is a should be used as a last ditch effort to help those who are extremely financially challenged.
Also, commish’s of Premier Leagues will have there membership fee’s waved for as long as they are in good standing and their league is in compliance with Premier requirements during the year.
We are working on an official “Terms of Service” document that will basically outline the additional benefits and expectations of Premier members.
The additional benefits for a league to go Premier (over and above the individual access) would be the following…
1. Premier Leagues are included on the front page scroll bar on the website.
2. Access to post league news and updates directly to the homepage.
3. Access to veteran, premier members for recruiting purposes.
4. Receive league wide custom sigs.
5. Able to participate in the Tradition Football Rankings system.
If you are currently in a Tradition Sports Online league of any type, it is not going away… we will still provide forums and general support to leagues for our non-subscription members. There is no required fee for you to have your league hosted here.
There will be a limit to our ability to help police, administer or enhance these non suscriber leagues, but they will have the same level of functionality that you see now.
