The 16-team Single Elimination Variant tournament format combines elements of a traditional single-elimination bracket with an additional consolation round for first-round losers, ensuring that each team plays a minimum of two games.


  • The tournament begins with a standard 16-team single-elimination bracket.
  • In the first round, there will be 8 matches, with the 8 winning teams advancing to the second round.
  • The 8 losing teams from the first round will then play an additional consolation round, with teams paired up against each other. Only teams who win a game will be included in ranking at the end of the tournament.

Consolation Round

  • The 8 first-round losing teams will be divided into 4 pairs to play consolation matches.
  • This ensures that each of the 16 teams plays at least 2 games in the tournament.
  • The consolation round matches can be scheduled concurrently or separately, depending on available field resources.

Subsequent Rounds

  • The tournament will proceed as a traditional single-elimination bracket alongside the consolation rounds.
  • The 8 winners from the first round advance to the quarterfinals.
  • The semifinals and finals follow the standard single-elimination format until a champion is determined.

Total Games

  • Each team will play a minimum of two games.
  • *With 16 teams, a traditional single-elimination bracket would require 15 games.
  • *By adding the 4 consolation games for first-round losers, the total number of games in this variant is 19.

*Time Requirement

  • Assuming a maximum game duration of 15 minutes and 2 available fields accommodating 4 games per hour each:
    • The 8 first-round games can be completed in 2 hours.
    • The 4 consolation games can be completed in 1 hour.
    • The remaining 7 games (quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals) can be completed in approximately 1.75 hours.
  • Therefore, the entire 16-team Single Elimination Variant tournament can be completed in approximately 2.5 hours (2 hours and 25 minutes).

*This format ensures that all 16 teams play at least two games while maintaining a relatively efficient and straightforward tournament structure. It provides a balanced approach between the traditional single-elimination format and ensuring a minimum level of participation for all teams.
