Our public display and in-between match content solution has been updated !
This new version embeds a live info strip, based on a Twitter feed and hashtag. Toornament TV is also customisable through its main elements :
- Background picture
- Main layout picture
- Border color (CSS)
- Text color
You can check it Live on this page.
The ESWC CoD 2015 starting this week end will be the first tournament to use the new Toornament TV.
Toornament TV is still underwork and thus, not directly available from your dashboard. If you’re interested, feel free to contact us !
So, what is a bracket groups ? As it names hints, it’s a group stage working as an elimination bracket (double or simple).
Bracket Groups structure brings a whole different pace to a group stage as each match becomes crucial.
Here are today’s new features, one invisible and other much more visible.
First, we’ve had our server maintenance process and internal changes, enhancing Toornament’s global performances and responsiveness.
Second, we’ve added a new color for our widget : Light. This white, clean look will make our widget a perfect embedabble content for more sites using white backgrounds and clear color schemes.
You just have to pick it from the “Share” tab in your dashboard. Here’s one in the flesh :
A full black theme is also on the way.
Meanwhile, other features and improvement are on the way, just let us know what you’d like to see !
Here’s our weekly glimpse at what’s incoming on Toornament – and how you could decide on what’s next !

This week, we’ve updated Toornament once again with 4 new features.
1. Score information
The groups now display the score information: score for each participant, score against each participant, and the score difference. In a tie situation, the score difference is now used to decide the rank between participants with the same amount of points. You still have the ability to make an other choice with the decider functionnality.
The score information is also displayed on the tournament widget. It’s a new valuable data to share to your audience
2. New languages supported
As a European based company, we know the importance of local language, so our two widgets, tournament navigator and registration, support now 4 more languages: Danish, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. Each time you share your widget you will be able to select the language to use.
3. Registration email notification
Want to receive an email for each new registration request on your tournament? You can now enable this feature in your registration settings. Never miss again a request.
Finally for this new update, we added a rules field, displayed on the tournament widget. This was a common feedback request.
Try those new functionalities, and continue to send us great feedback.
