With a bracket you can stay on top of the latest games and get a sense of the larger tournament standings with any one of our printer-friendly brackets, which all come in a variety of layouts and formats.
What about an 9-Team Bracket?
Tournament brackets vary in size based on the amount of teams participating. A 9 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 nine competing teams, there’s an odd number of winning teams moving into the next round, which means one team would not have a match up. You’ll definitely need a play-in game to even things out, literally.
Take a look at the bracket sample to get a visual of what we’re talking about. You’ll see how the tournament will progress from the first round to the second round and beyond.
