Sports Tournament Schedule Templates – 10 Free Sample Templates

When there is a sports event anywhere in the world, usually more than two teams are invited to play in the tournament i.e. IFL tournaments and cricket world cup tournaments in which dozens of teams from around the world participate in the event. In order to provide a schedule for these teams and the matches of the opponents in the tournament, sports tournament schedule is introduced. There are many types of these schedules and some of these systems are given below.

Common types of Sports Tournament Schedules:

  1. Round robin Tournament Schedule:
    A round robin tournament which is also known as the all players play all tournament is a gaming schedule in which each player in a tournament plays with all the other opponents in the tournament. For example, if there are 8 teams in a tournament, each player will play with all the other teams in the tournament if the round ribbon tournament schedule is implemented in the game. Although this scheduling system is derived from Greek language but it is most often used in United States these days and for that reason, it is also known as the American tournament system. The formula used for round robin tournament schedule is and the ‘n’ here is the number of teams in the tournament. For example, if there are 8 teams in the tournament, the tournament will have 28 games with this formula. In the same manner when each team in a tournament plays with all the opponent teams twice in the tournament, it is known as the double round robin tournament schedule. This is not very common because most of the time, each team in a tournament has to play with other teams more than other teams and in this case, the double round robin system can’t be implemented.
  2. Swiss System Tournament Schedule:
    This is also a very common tournament schedule system which is mostly used in chess tournaments but it can also be used in other games i.e. soccer, basket ball and baseball. In this system, the teams are divided in different categories and this way each team in the tournament plays with many other teams but not with the same team for more than once. This way the Swiss system has fewer games as compared to the round robin tournament system. Another difference in this schedule is that no team is eliminated during the tournament but the team with highest earned points at the end of the tournament wins.
  3. Single Elimination Tournament Schedule:
    A single elimination tournament schedule which is most commonly known as the Olympic system tournament is a specific system that divides the teams in a tournament in two equal brackets and then the teams in each bracket play with other teams in the same bracket. This way when a team loses, it is immediately eliminated from the tournament and there is no way for the defeated team to play the final game for the trophy of the tournament. In cricket world cup tournaments, the same methodology is used for dividing the teams in two sections and then arranging their games in order to see which of the two teams from the both sections will stand on the last to play the final game for the trophy of the tournament. In the same manner, when the teams have the opportunity of getting one more change after losing a game is known as the double elimination tournament in which a team has to lose two games in order to knock out of the tournament.
