What is an 18-Team Bracket?

Tournament brackets vary in size based on the amount of teams participating. A 18 team bracket doesn’t work out as evenly as a 4, 8, 16, 32, or 64 team tourney would. In addition to an even number of teams, there needs to be an equal number of brackets as teams advance into the following rounds.

For 18 registered teams in your single elimination bracket, your first round will require play-in games so the rest of the bracket will work out smoothly. 

That’s due to the fact that twenty teams puts up an odd number of winning teams from the first round, which means one team would not have a match up. Take a look at the below example 18-team bracket so you can understand what we’re referring to. You’ll see that as the tournament will progress from the first round to the second round and beyond and how that works out..
