There, you have it : an independant, standalone webpage for your tournament !
Toornament max participants number currently tops at 256 players.
The main reasons behind this choice are to prevent a huge, unreadable structure with a visual footprint spanning over several web pages high and wide. For example, here how looks a 128 player single elimination bracket :

Finally down there? You just scrolled through HALF of a 256 players simple bracket! It already is massive, and we didn’t even pick a double elimination structure!
But if you run a large scale tournament, there are still way to build them on Toornament, with a quite simple method : divide into sub tournaments.
Each one acts as a branch of the main tournament.
Let’s take for example a 1024 players Street Fighter IV tournament. You can split it into four 256 players tournaments where the top 32 players are qualified. You can even run these pre bracket to their finals, to get seedings in the final bracket.
In your Toornament dashboard, just create 4 tournaments named “My huge Street Fighter IV Cup – Sub Tournament A”, all the way to the letter D.
The top 32 players from each 4 sub-tournaments will qualify and thus, build a final 128 players bracket.
Here how the method looks :
This method is as straighforward as flexible, allowing you to handle huge tournaments and leagues with a better organisation. Of course, keep in mind that large tournaments are timing nightmares, so always keep in mind if you’ve checked all the boxes to handle them, from time to admins and gaming stations!
Toornament allows you to give specific permissions over your tournament. To do so, simply go to the Permissions menu in your Organizer Dashboard:
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.
Each organizer have their way to put people into a double elimination structure. Most of the time, participant are placed into a bracket following their given seedings, or their performances in the previous stages of the tournament (i.e groupstage), or from qualifiers.
