Knockout Draw Generator

Use this tool to create a draw for a single-elimination (knockout, sudden death) style tournament or competition.

Enter the names or initials of competitors or teams below and choose whether you'd like them randomly matched or paired for a doubles tournament. Where the number of competitors is not a power of two, some number will receive a first-round bye.
