What is a tournament bracket?
Tournament bracket is a tournament structure which is played via the knockout system. Bracket Tournament is a single-elimination competition whereby a participant or team will be leaving the tournament if they lose a game or match.
If a participant or team of the tournament wins a match, they will go to the next round or bracket. This tournament ends with a final which is played between 2 participants or teams.

There is no limit in the number of participants that you can add in our bracket maker. We tested our tool successfully with 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 participants.
With large numbers of participants, the knock-out tournament schedule on the website may become less clear. We recommend printing the tournament schedule or exporting it to Excel.
When there is an odd number of participants, 1 participant will always automatically proceed to the next round.
If the participants cannot be evenly divided in a knockout system, such as in the case of 6 or 12 participants, you can choose from the following 2 options in the tournament settings:
Fill the next round with a number of self-chosen losers (lucky losers).
Automatically let a number of participants proceed to the next round.
You must enter the losers yourself in round 1 for matches without participants. We will then automatically enter them in round 2.
Sorry, we only support single elimination. We are planning to add different tournament types like Double Elimination & Round Robin to the tool in the future.
