Printable Brackets

All of these brackets are in PDF format. The smaller brackets are for letter-sized (8.5″ x 11″), but should adapt easily to A4. The larger brackets are “Super B” (13″ x 19″), but should adapt easily to A3 or tabloid paper. Lower brackets show their structure in the notation explained here, or in the file name (with “v” replacing “|”).

16-team tournaments:

Upper bracket, use for single-elimination or as winners bracket for either of the lowers: 16upper

Lower (losers) bracket, shifted to save a round and improve fairness: 16lowershift (A.B.C.D.|.X)

Lower (losers) bracket, the traditional unshifted version, fairer for seeded tourneys: 16lowerus (A.B.|.C.|.D.X)

32-team tournaments:

Upper bracket, use for single elimination or as winners bracket for any of the lowers: 32upper

Lower (losers) bracket, ED shifted to save a round, fairest design for blind draw tourney: 32lowerde (A.B.|.C.D.E.|.X)

Lower (losers) bracket, the traditional unshifted version, fairer for seeded tourneys: 32lowerus (A.B.|.C.|.D.|.E.X)
