A Single Elimination Tournament Bracket is for events where if the team loses one game, they are out of the event. Single elimination tournament is best type when you have a large number of teams and a short time frame. When a team wins they continue, and when they lose they’re out
A Double Elimination tournament is the best type of tournament to run if you have a long enough to complete all of the games – there are more games involved in Double elimination versus single elimination tournaments. This type of tournament is usually more fun as one loss and you are still in the tournament.
