When you add a new tournament it will ask you.
1) Tournament Type (Single Elimination, Double Elimination, Round Robin, etc)
2)How Many Teams
3)Add the teams or send out an invite and let them add their team and players
4)Add teams to Pool
5)Set game time limit/where games will be played/what time you want the first game to start and the last game, break time between games, let the software create the match ups and times within the time period and where they are played, but can be changed manually also.
6)Depending on the tournament type when you pick the winner and loser of the round it will automatically create the next round.
Another problem is that the rounds are often best of 3, best of 5, or even best of 7 ... so many tournaments use this mode. At the moment it is only possible to do a single or double elimination.

we already are able to create round robin leagues (home-away) than end-up in a torunament, but so far the tournament can be single elimination, and double -KO already (great work) but we stil miss 2 HANDS the home GAME and away GAME in single elimination (and double-ko too now we mnention it)
This needs to be added. Roch, get on this.
If we could create the Pools for round robin, add the teams, then it would generate a schedule for games based on how many courts/venues you enter, as well as when the first game starts and the tournament ends each day.
Then the bracket would auto-update with the results of each pool.

the home and away tournaments its so important please
Martyn Johnstone commented
Can the tournaments be customisable so the user can create their own format?
I am pretty sure most sports run different formats so would be good to be able to create their own different tournament paths.
Dan Fay commented
Would agree to this. Sometimes we play doublets & triplets and at times our largest torunament is over 150 triplet teams and the limit of 64 makes it limiting.
Esteban Siles commented
Is very important to include Home and Away legs on every tournament bracket. Most of european football clubs play this way.

I host a chess club so team tournaments and individual tournaments are both offered. Tournament formats include team vs team with multiple boards, individual/team, swiss sys, and round robin.
This is what we need!
Would like to see a standalone tournament setup without all the extras.
If a school wants to host a Basketball tournament they could come to the site and register for a tournament (www.mainsite.com/Basketball_Tournament) and just a tournament setup without all the league options.
Nice to have a mobile app to update stats on the fly.
