Each Bracket & Tournament widget has rounds, including pre-rounds, round 1, round 2, quarterfinals, semifinals, and more, with each round featuring various games. To elaborate on your bracket and make it easy for your end-users to understand, we highly recommend activating this feature.
Wondering why? Take a closer look at major global sporting events like the Cricket World Cup, FIFA Cup, etc., and you'll notice multiple rounds leading to eliminations, determining winners, and eventually the champion.
These rounds serve to provide an understanding of the tournament's format and schedule. Enabling these features becomes especially important as the number of participants increases.
Note: Round Titles will only appear if you have 4 or more participants in your bracket.
To enable the Round Titles feature, in your editor, navigate to the Settings tab, under Visibility, locate and toggle the Rounds Titles option:
In addition, If you wish to customize round title names, navigate to the Games tab in your editor, click the pencil icon on each round section, and rename the titles. You'll see the changes instantly reflected in your brackets.
Let's break down the default game structures based on the number of participants:
- 4 Participants: Semifinals, Final
- 5 Participants: Pre-Round, Semifinals, Final
- 7 Participants: Pre-Round 1, Pre-Round 2, Semifinals, Final
- 8 Participants: Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Final
As you add more participants, the brackets will automatically adjust itself with the varying number of rounds. Here is one example of how the round titles will look like in a March Madness tournament:
