new FootballPlayer( $team_selector )

Used to create a FootballPlayer object in the Sports Bench Plugin.

To create a new football player object, you’ll need to use the Sports_Bench\Classes\Sports\Football\FootballPlayer namespace and then use new FootballPlayer( $team_selector ). If you’re using the player_id to create the player object, you must place (int) before the id number.

This class is a child class of the Player class and inherits all of the properties and methods of the Player class. If you’re using football as your sport, you should use the FootballPlayer class in your customizations.

  • @param string|int $player_selector — The slug or id of the team player create the object for.
