I am just making a little app and it collects team data. One of my fields is "number of players". In this sense I mean how many players are playing on the pitch at any given time. But it could certainly be construed as how many players are in your roster. So i'm a little stuck as to a better way to word this? Any ideas would be great
More context around your app and needs would certainly help better provide a solution, but how about simply labeling the field "Players on Pitch"?
Number of active players or number of starters would work.
You could set it as a question that the user will answer.
- How many on you roster?
- How many on the pitch?
May seem verbose, but clearer.
