    I added the Sports Calendar to my google account and it shows up on my online Google calendar but not on my Motorola Droid. I did the same with the US Holidays calendar and it instantly worked both online and my Droid. Any suggestions...?

    In the calendar app, bring up the menu then select more and My Calendars. Are all the calendars you want to display checked?

    The google sports calendars have never synced to any mobile phone due to some unknown reason but the consensus speculation is its a license issue. This has been discussed on a few forums so you're not the only one.

    The sports calendar's don't work with my Droid and did not work with my old G1. The only thing to do is import them manually from the teams website (there is usually an option to download a file which can be imported into Excel, you may have to play around with it before GCal accepts the file).

    a pretty easy fix for this is to go to your calendar on your pc,click the sporting event then click add to my calendar. you have to do that for each game so it will take a few minutes but doesn't take too long....unless it's MLB.

    The solution I came across was at MySportsCal.com - Download Sports Schedules to Outlook, iCal, Google Calendar.

    You can download just about any teams schedule in csv or ical. From there you can import the downloaded file into an existing google calendar.


    The home teams stadium is even linked to google maps in the calendar event...


    Just need to find a similar site for holidays now!

    This is the easiest fix. Worked for me and was easy, but I only want my college football teams schedule so one game per week. Thanks man! Great idea!

    This worked great, except the times didn't import. Each event is marked as "all day". Any easy fix for this?

    I'll take this one guys.

    For the NFL Schedule, I deleted the start/end columns for the other time zones, and renamed them "start time" and "end time". I got rid of the time zone designation (ET in my case).

    Re-imported, and they show up correctly now.

    Been at it for over an hour now trying to figure out why...

    Example: On the west coast, downloaded the Chargers .ics , I created the calender and imported the file. Then when I go in to view the calendar, it's showing start time of 3:05 pm instead of 1:05 as it should be. I even have the timezone set to my location of "Pacific". grrrrrrrrrrr! Why do some teams list it as "ALL DAY". I want to know what time they are playing. another grrrrrr! :)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I too am having trouble seeing mu contacts birthday calendar in my android phone. Shows up fine on my Google calendar, is listed in the calendars shown on my phone calendar app, but does not show on the calendar itself, no matter what settings I mess with, no matter how many times I reset/purge data/reboot phone. Won't show on my stock calendar, nor on any other calendar app I download.
