Clicking into the Club Competitions 2018/19 will take you to the next menu of choices:
For the case of this example, let's look at the Fraserburgh Friendly. Clicking into this competition will bring up the following page, note the highlighted area details how many entries are allowed for this particular competition but most importantly the allowed dimensions for the entries. These are the values that will be used during export from your editing application such as Lightroom or Photoshop. For this example, the longest horizontal edge is 1600px, longest vertical edge is 1200px, therefore in the case of a square crop you would only be allowed 1200px x 1200px due to the restriction on the vertical edge.
