More tournament options

Tournaments should have the option for a group stage before the knockout phase. This is essential for football tournaments!

        Now what we do is we create a league table for the group stages then have tournament brackets for the rest an use short codes to display on one page.

        But it woudl help if they did this naturly

        We've been having to use the league tables for this. :(

        Also single match or return match, now it's useless for higher level tournaments and there is no way to work around this missing option.

        "4 teams, 2 games.
        1 vs 4
        2 vs 3
        Winner 1v4 VS Winner 2v3 = Tournament Winner
        Loser 1v4 VS Loser 2v3 = 3rd Place"

        This one!

        For example when I am running the Swedish Championships in Roller derby and similar...

        Maybe a round robin that leads to a knockout tournament would be relevant.

        There's also a 4 team weekend tournament that isn't covered in the current Tournament structure.

        4 teams, 2 games.

        1 vs 4
        2 vs 3

        Winner 1v4 VS Winner 2v3 = Tournament Winner
        Loser 1v4 VS Loser 2v3 = 3rd Place

        Output = Place table (similar to standings table).

        A optional each and back game in the tournament tree would be great, too!

        Agreed, this is vital. There are ways to hack it together (e.g. a separate competition (group stage, with tables, etc), then a knockout tournament with manually entered teams), but doing this by itself would be ideal.

        and also for many other sports

        this is vital for tennis and tabletennis too!
