# Sport tournament template

I created Excel templates for saving sports results. There are many variants of tournament: 3 – 16 teams in each group. The number of groups is not limited.

Each group is on a separate sheet. It contains a list of teams, the schedule and it automatically generates the table.

## Settings – team names

For changing the team names just edit the table “Team name”. The changes will be reflected in the Schedule and in the Table.

## Settings – points for a win, a loss and a draw

File contains sheet named Options. There you can set the points. The changes will apply to the entire file.

## Settings – how to add more groups

In each file are 4 groups. If you want to add another group, copy one of the sheets and rename it (For example copy sheet named GroupD and rename it to GroupE). If you want to remove some of the group, just delete the group sheet.

## Automatically generated table

You have to fill the score of each match and the table will be automatically sorted by number of points. There are no Excel macros, just an array formula and lookup function. The table calculates:

GP – Games Played

W – wins

D – draws

L – loss

GF – Goals For

GA – Goals Against

GD – Goal Difference

PTS – points

## Bonus/penalty points

You can give a bonus or penalty points to the each team. For example: team2 has 9 bonus points and team4 has 10 penalty points. This will be automatically calculated to the final table.

## League schedule template

Template for 9 – 16 teams can be used as the league schedule. Rounds are separated in different color.

## How to update and create more teams template

Do you need some modifications? Try it yourself 🙂 There is the video guide how to update 3 teams template to 4 teams template.

15 teams in each group: sport_tournament_15_teams.xlsx

16 teams in each group: sport_tournament_16_teams.xlsx

## Edit. 04/20/2014

I improved the formula so that it took into account the goal difference. Thanks Bert for inspiration. In the next few days, I will add other versions with a different number of teams.

## Edit. 06/11/2014

The schedule has now 4 rounds. Each team can play with others twice as home and twice as visitor. So you can use this template for some kind of sport league (basketball, football, ice hockey, volleyball, …)

## Edit. 08/28/2014

– 14 teams template added

– bonus/penalty points feature

– ranking improved – if points and goal difference are equal, then ranking is based on goals scored

– schedule in 10, 12 and 14 teams template is now prepared to be a league – each round is separated by a color

## Edit. 10/14/2014

– 9 teams template added

## Edit. 11/13/2014

– 3 teams template added

– 11 teams template added

## Edit. 12/05/2014

– 13 teams template added

– 15 teams template added

## Edit. 01/23/2015

– 16 teams template added

Hi brilliant having some group templates but I was wondering if you could have round of 16, quarter finals, semi finals and finals. If not possible that is OK but please try and improve it even more than it is improved by right now thanks

Firstly, thank you for these draws- they really are a godsend…I use them all the time. That being said, I’m using the 4 team draw for the first time but it has an error where it has 1 team playing against 2 team at the same time. (See below). I’m utterly useless at spreadsheets…would you have time to have a look and rectify this?

Please let me know if you need any further information.

ROUND 1

Inner Sydney Leichhardt : Field 1

Leichhardt Marrickville : Field 2

Inner Sydney Strathfield : Field 1

Marrickville Inner Sydney : Field 2

Strathfield Marrickville : Field 1

Leichhardt Strathfield : Field 2

Do you have the password to unprotect the options as I would like o add count back and playoff options

Do you have one for a 20 team league?

What is the password to unprotect the “option” sheet? I want to add additional lines for “losing with 7pts or less” and scoring “4 tries”. Please assist.

Hi

I have a tournament with 19 teams. Is there a template that can accommodate

hi

I need the password to unlock a data sheet

I need a top 16 knockout template

Good day

this is a great template but ia using it for Masters League how do i make 18 teams from 16 teams i had been trying but no Luck i need help

I don’t know if anyone will see this to be able to help me out. I created a main standing sheet that’s supposed to populate all the details from each group so as to seed automatically once the table populate the new standings after each game in group A and Group B. How do I set the formular for that?

Perfect, I edited everything for my hockey league but… if one team win after overtime, how to put in list?

Hello, I am looking to create a cross-league tournament where one team has 6 teams (i.e. teams A, B, C, D, E, F) while the other league has 4 teams (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4). I would like to create two pools with teams A, B, C, 1, 2 in one pool and teams D, E, F, 3, 4 in the other pool. I would like A, B, and C to each play 1 and 2 while D, E, and F each play 3 and 4. However, I would like each team to get to play 3 games. So I require A, B, C, D, E, and F to all get one more game against another “lettered” team (within pool or cross pool does not matter). The format would be that each team has one game on a Friday night and their other two games on the Saturday (spaced out as evenly as possible). 12 of the 15 total games would be as follows: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D3, D4, E3, E4, F3, F4. The other three games might be something like AB, CD, and EF. I am struggling with a way to space these games out as evenly as possible in order to maximize rest time between games on the Saturday. Any help you might be able to provide would be very much appreciated.

Duane

Is there a way to add more matches??

Figured it out. You simply copy – paste a round and insert it and the summary table automatically includes it in its lookup. Thank you again for this spreadsheet!

Hey Rob, im having some issues with copy and pasting in rounds where they do not carry over the new data into the table.

Could you show us how you achieved this?

Hello Sir,

I love this spreadsheet and have used it for years in our soccer league! We have recently changed our scoring for a team that forfeits to receive -1 points. Is there a way that I modify the spreadsheet to reflect this automatically in the PTS column?

Just write “-1” in the bonus/penalty cell

Hi, this is a fantastic template and I’m using it for a tennis league, but was wondering about one issue and how to resolve it. When two (or more) players have the same number of points, how can the first option for ranking be the winner of their match.

I have been using these templates for a few years now.

On the scoring the points for a loss, I would like to have a >50% score point

Points would be

Points for a win = 4

Points for a draw = 2

Points for a loss = 1 (if the score of the lossing team is 50% or greater than 50% of the winning team

IE.

Score 10-5

Winner = 4

Loser = 1

Score 11-5

Winner = 4

Loser = 0

Score 3-2

Winner = 4

Loser = 1

Is it possible to make the options as below:

Win 3

score draw 2

no score draw 1

loss 0

Do you have a triangular round robin draw for three teams of 8 players for a darts tournament?

Il giorno successivo, i giocatori giocheranno con l’handicap del giorno precedente e cosi via fino ad arrivare alla fine della liga. Infini vorrei il punteggio delle squadre e dei giocatori singolari con attuale classifica.

Hi, I need a template for an 18 team round robin draw over 17 rounds. All teams play together at the same venue each round. All derby matches must be played at home venues. My difficulty is that one club has 4 teams in the competition but we only play at their home club in 3 rounds.

Is there also a tutorial on how to set this up?

With your code no pig comes after.

I can not change the matrix… comes an error.

Hello how can i add round 5 & 6 to a 6 man tournament template to enable each team to play each other 3 times please?

I love these templates. Have been using for years with our Little League divisions. However, I ran into an issue this year with our minor league division which has 13 teams. Once I get to line 92 of the spreadsheet (which is game #70) the standings stop calculating wins/losses/ties. The games played is still working. I’ve tried entering scores below line 92 and they all have the same problem. The standings have worked flawlessly up until that line. Any ideas? Or can I send my spreadsheet to someone to look at?

Hi,

I s there anyway of having 2 league tables that automatically update from separate scoring lists?

I use these for volleyball which we don’t have draws. if it is 1 set all the result goes to total number of points.

I can’t work out how to amend the formula. I have added points columns to the right of the score columns.

It would be really nice if I could add starting times and breaks for games (24h clock). And change these easily.

This template is amazing! Thank you for making this available. Would it be possible to add the percentage (the goals scored for divided by the goals scored against i think)

I’ve tried the video but I can’t seem to graspe the formulas

Hi Jason, did you get an answer to your question? I’m looking for an 18 team league.

Hi Gavin,

Were you able to get a template for 18 teams? I’m looking for a template for 19. I’ve been trying to follow the video for a week now and I can’t seem to get the formula correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Melanie

I have tried your updating procedure after watching the video but keep getting an error value in the hidden table. Is it possible just to amend the formulae in the hidden table to include more rows/ rounds?

Hello can I get it for 2 divisions of 8 teams in each division.

Each team play each other once in their divisions. so only 7 games.

Great spreadsheet its been very hepful. I am using for a golf keague so i could do with it ranking thoses with a lower GF if it come to it. How would/where would i change that.

hi, brilliant template love it. Thanx.

However i need to use it for a darts league ,where points = legs won. Games are best of 21 legs. Therefore if result is 17-4 winner gets 11 points loser gets 4 points. can adjust the code in the points cell to reflect this ? ie so that points come from GF cell for each team.?

Kind regards

Thank you.

Ive sorted it..shoe hidden formula ,then change points column formula.as follows

remove all $options formula.change u3 to the cell you want your points from(in my case x3 the GF column) so this leaves….X3+LOOKUP(………………..). table now changes to reflect scores of match .

I have tied to copy and paste so i have 8 sheets therefore 8 groups but there are formula errors in the group table please can anybody help

Hi,

there is a hidden table that you have to also copy. It is between V – AE columns. See the video “How to update tournament template”. It might help you to understand how it is working.

Hi,

How do you enter a team forfeit win/loss?

Hi,

it depends on sport. In football (soccer) is usually score 3:0 against the team and all points goes to the second team.

How do you change it so that teams only play each other twice instead of four times?

I would suggest to leave empty the second half of rounds.

Hi, I would like to make excel table for ordinary tennis league, but if 2 teams are equal with points than it should take into account their mutual match, so who won the match is higher ranking.

So, I have 11 teams, namely:

Team 1

Team2

Team3

Team4

Team5

Team6

Team7

Team8

Team9

Team10

Team11

After entering the results for each round, let Excel itself sort the Teams in the following order:

a) Team with most points is highest ranking.

b) If 2 teams with the same nr. of points, the head-to-head is then watched and whoever won is higher ranking. If the teams have not yet played each other or have result for draw, then skip to c).

c) If the teams are still the same, then they are judged by goal difference – higher difference is higher ranking.

d) If the teams are still the same, then see who received fewer goals – who received less goals is higher ranking..

e If the teams are still the same, then see who scored more goals – who scored more goals is higher ranking.

f) If the teams are still the same, then they occupy the same ranking place.

Here is link for demo file:

If you have any solution / formula, pls let me know

Could you Add aa 18, 19 and 20 Teams template!

Fantastic Templates.

Can I change the layout a little…

Team 1, score, v, team 2, score

Team 3, score, v, team 4, score

Hi,

thanks. Yes, you can change a layout. You need to change formulas in the hidden table to keep everything working. See the video in “How to update and create more teams template”.

I have two teams at the same venue, how do I make sure they don’t play at home at the same time?

John

Hi,

this template is not prepared for 2 teams in one venue.

Hello, is there any way you can get it where the following is the ranking.

-Win vs. Loss

-Head to Head

-Goals Against

-Goals Scored

Hi,

Yes, there is a way to change the ranking. There is a ranking formula in the hidden AE column that you can change to suit your needs.

How do I input as a default Win if a team does not show up, without inputting it as follows, 1-0, because if I do that it adds to the GF and GA totals, I do not want that to happen.

Hi Paul, did you figure out how to do this? I am needing to put in a forfeit column

I have created the rounds but I have a limit of 5 fields rather than the 6 that are allocated in the program. Any ideas?

I’ve used this template for many years on my previous PC but I changed to a Mac last year and these are incompatible. I can download a table but lose some of the functionality which isn’t ideal. Is there a Numbers version of this I could access?

Sorry meant to say a 13 team and 12 team

sorry i got it duhhh, but i added an extra group to the sheet 7 teams to a 6 team sheet and the formula didnt paste over.

Can you help me figure out how to add the round, after the 1st one -where the teams will play the #3 from GroupA and #3 from GroupB? Can’t figure out how to calculate that. Guessing I can do it manually, but that would defeat the process. Then #2 GroupA vs #2 from GroupB, etc? Have about 15 different groups.

Hi all,

Hi, love these templates – wondering if you had a template for top goal scorers as well?

How can I find a template for 19 teams in a league

I would like to create round robins 7 rounds for 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32 players that rotate (not same partner) where 1 is strongest and the last player is the weakest. Would someone be interested in doing this for me? It means it is graded and not random who you play.

I would like a tournament draw: 20 teams, 3 games on one day, 10 rinks so no team plays on the same rink twice. Expandable for 22 and 24 teams would be helpful too! Do you have something like that available? Thanks!

Hi your formula does not work on the 16 grid of teams to play home and away each week it shows say Team 1 home all the time, also all other home teams show home games each week

Please help. I am trying to organise a fishing tournament where we have 21 persons and they are to play every other person once but each contest is to be within a mini contest of 3 persons. I.e. A v B v C to get 3 points, 2 points and 1 point. Next week, A v D v G.

I have managed to get the first few weeks sorted but fail to make sure everyone plays everyone else but never more than once.

Can this be done?

is the any other templates like and draw for tennis?

Thanks

Hi

I need tables with 18 teams, please

christian.reif82@gmail.com

Great template! I was able to use this and turn it into an NHL format.

The one thing I need to note is: What would be the difference between using that long INDEX formula for the standings as opposed to a simple SORT formula?

Another note: In the hidden standings for each group, can’t GP just be a SUM command encompassing the W, L, and D columns?

Hi! Thanks for this amazing spreadsheet.

I have a couple of questions relating to the “Bonuses”. I am running Blood Bowl leagues with Bonus points awarded as thus:

1 Bonus Point for every TD (Touchdown) up to 3

1 Bonus Point for every Casualty Caused up to 3

3 Bonus Points for a Shutout

This is on top of

W=30pts

D=10pts

L=0pts

I love it if you could create a spreadsheet that tallies these bonus points automatically once inputted as you did with the GF and GA.

Much appreciated! Keep up the fantastic work for clueless souls like myself.

bonjour on peut avoir une table de 64 équipes s’il vous plait c’est pour organiser un concours de pétanque en quatre tour merci d’avance

Would it be possible to have x players, then randomly pair them with a different players each match to form a team?

Say 16 players that creates 8 teams. Each players partners with every other player once? All players play against each other at least once.

Thanks.

This is a great design. Very useful! I’ve been trying to figure out how to add rounds and can’t do it. Can you help? Basically, if I want add multiple rounds so that the stats continue to track once teams play more than 4 total times.

Thanks!

Hi, did you ever work out how to add extra rounds?

Also i presume one can insert a date column without affecting it working?

Not downloaded yet, and have several ideas as to how to do what i want, but if somebody already know that would be great. In sports where the return game carries a bonus point based on the aggregate two game scores, can it be adjusted to 1. display total score from the two games and apply a bonus point to the higher points scoring team?

Hello and firstly I thank you all of this. Awesome work.

I have question or did i forgot to do something.

Good afternoon,

I have added three more 4 team groups (2,3,& 4) and whilst all the formulas work in group 2 they do not in groups 3 & 4.

Specifically the W, D, L, GF, GA, & Points data is not updated,only games played.

I have checked the formulas but I can’t see anything wrong.

what is the password so I can change the options spreed sheet?

hi .I love this but I need 1 for a 4 team 6 team 8 team and 12 team for a 3 game guarantee with a seedings column after the first 2 pool play games are over

Hi,

is there a way to have the points won set to whatever the players score?

i.e

score ends 10-4 so instead of 3 points for win the team would get 10 and the loser get 4

i changed the draw to 7 which works.

as its a dart leage and we play for 14 points each league game so teams could win 8-6 but i need the points to total points won and lost and not a specific amount like 3 points for a win if that makes sense.

any help would be appreciated

thanks

frankie

How do you change what column the table is automatically sorted by ?

Currently the column is sorted by goal differential but I have added an additional percentage column that I would like it to sort by.

Hi,

Any examples on how to do it? What formula should be applied?

teams?

Thank you

Hi,

thanks for the work!

I’m also looking for a single sheet with 18 or 20 teams, like a normal league (Bundesliga or Premier League). Would be awesome if you could add these sheets.

Thanks a lot!

Sorry ! Posting again as I there was a typo in my email address .

I am trying to use the 8 team template for FIFA tournament where each team will play with every other player as best of 3 series. So 3 matches with every player . . if there is a result 2-1 then winner gets 3 points. If all 3 matches are drawn then both share 1 point each. At the end of the all the matches top 4 teams will proceed to next round and play knockouts for which the fixtures should be pretty easy.

Right now I can use the fixtures from Round 1-3 for my best of 3. But the challenge is to calculate the points at best of 3 level result and not at individual match level. I would want to keep the goal tally recorded though for every match.

TIA,

Bhavik

Hi,

Do you have a 22 team template?

Thanks

Hi there,

Does anyone know how to edit the 3 team spreadsheet to allow for 10 rounds?

Thanks,

Hey there

great spread sheet. Do you have a 17 team template by any chance

Cheers Col

For the first time I need a 17 team template and points table. Any help would be appreciated. Very appreciative of these templates, they are excellent to work with

I would like it to automatically give the winning team an extra point for a shut out and I would like it to give both teams an extra point for every goal they score up to 3 for every game, win or lose.

Hello

Let me tell you first that this is phenomenal! I hope you can help me out with this:

I have 4 groups, with 4 teams in 3 groups: A, B, and C, and 5 teams in group D

only 1 game against each other in each group

Then I have :

Quarter-Finals A

Bracket A #1

vs

Bracket C #2

Quarter-Finals B

Bracket B #1

vs

Bracket D #2

Quarter-Finals C

Bracket C #1

vs

Bracket A #2

Quarter-Finals D

Bracket D #1

vs

Bracket B #2

After that I have :

Semi-Finals A

Quarter-Finals A Winner

vs

Quarter-Finals D Winner

Semi-Finals B

Quarter-Finals B Winner

vs

Quarter-Finals C Winner

And the final will be:

Final

Semi-Finals A Winner

vs

Semi-Finals B Winner

Is any way you can put this in an excel sheet to just put the scores and the team’s names can be reflected base on the results?

Thank you so much and keep up the good work!

can anybody help.

I am running a round robin tournament at our bowls club

We have 14 teams playing each other on 7 rinks

Each team can only play on each rink a maximum 2 times.

I have tried the existing templates but at some point some teams seem to be playing on 1 or 2 rinks three times.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi

Great excel sheets for Sports.

I’m doing Netball League scores and need to update the points with adding, Loser >50% goals of winner =1 Point. Loser <10 (within 9 goals of winner) = 2 points.

so

Winner – 5

Draw – 4

50% – 1

loss – 0

I can’t amend it on the spread sheet,

Thanks

Cathie P

Hi Cathie,

Forgive me for intruding. I run dice netball leagues and firstly, I have always awarded 3 points for a draw which I have found more realistic. Secondly, simply use the bonus/penalty points column to input the 1 or 2 bonus points. Quite simple unless you are having a problem with the system.

Hi!

I see that the comment section is still active on this one. Good.

I’m also finding these superhelpful, but i too have a different kind of scenario.

We have a tournament with two groups. These groups play separately and they don’t play against each other. But we play 3 matches a day for a period of time. So i would need a table that combines the two groups so there can be games from both groups the same time, but no games mixing the two groups. What would be the easiest way to achieve a single sheet with this kind of situation….

I would love to know this too!

2 separate pools on one sheet – I think I just need to know how to change the definition of homescore and visitorscore – but I’m no spreadsheet whiz.

Thanks!

I figured mine out – I had imported the sheet into Google Sheets which doesn’t show defined names…

I’m not sure if we’re both after the same thing but I found it easy enough to copy and paste the formulas around in the latest Excel and drag fields around once selected in the formula line.

Hi,

you can have it separately in sheets GroupA and GroupB.

Then you can use split function to see 2 sheets in one screen. https://www.howtogeek.com/411797/how-to-use-excels-split-screen-function/

I know it is not the best solution but it can be start point:)

Hi Guys, we love really really love your table and find attractive, useful, practical and versatile. We have been trying to mix two zones with some success but met a small glitch in the second ranking table as it reflecting #VALUE! errors. Please can you help?

Can you please tell me the p/w to unlock the Options tab.

Points

points for a win 3

points for a draw 1

points for a loss 0

Hi,

you can still edit the numbers.

I use these for teaching PE lessons for different tournaments. These are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing – I wish I had your excel knowledge!

Please ..tell me ..do you have for 22 teams …becouse it is for biliiards tournament…i need that…whoud you be so candy to send me ..on my e mail ..thank you

Morning! I have been asked to organise the scoring for a week-long (lawn) bowls competition, taking over from a man who is very well-up on excel formulas etc., and has run it very efficiently for a few years. However due to unforeseen circumstances he’s not able to do it this year. I’m quite daunted by the challenge and trying to find a way to teach myself how to set it all up so that it runs efficiently. I will have to be able to provide team results at the end of every day and a team results sheet to enable the teams to see how they are placed every day. We are looking at over 90 teams of four players each.

Can you offer any suggestions?

Thank you

Rosemary

Is there any way to add more than 4 rounds?

Thanks!

John

Hi,

yes there is. See the video How to update..

You have to create new Rounds below current and extend the data source range in the hidden table.

It works also in LibreOffice Calc. Great!

The schedule is sorted by points from what I understand. What if points are tied? What is the next sorting mechanism?

Thanks!

John

Hi,

The next sorting criterium is number in column GD (goal difference). It is calculated as the number of goals scored (GF) minus the number of goals conceded (GA).

Hi. this looks great, i have a similar ask this might seem like a tough ask but bear with me.

I have created a spreadsheet that houses correct football scores for 5 or so people, what i want to do is place in their predictions and when i put in the correct result at the end of play i want the sheet to recognise that the score matches and accumulate the points below each person, i.e 3 points for a correct score, 1 point for a correct result, no value if they get both wrong, also if they bank it to double the points i.e

Team1 v Team11 2 – 1 1 – 1 2 – 1 4 – 1 5 – 1 6 – 1

0 3 1 1 1

Once this is completed i want in a separate table to update the points scored as they are inputted week on week.

In effect i want the input of the correct result to trigger all of these calculations, i understand that it might be too much of a multi faceted argument. but its worth a try.

Thanks

I would like to add to the points Forfeit loss= 0

Double Forfeit = 0

your points won is set at 3 but i need it to change to whatever points team gain on the night.

i changed the draw to 7 which works.

as its a dart leage and we play for 14 points each league game so teams could win 8-6 but i need the points to total points won and not a specific amount like 3 points for a win if that makes sense.

any help would be appreciated

thanks

frankie

I am look for some help please. We are getting ready to put on a special tournament for high school charity. Any I need a sheet to host 14 teams. 2 brackets will have 3 teams and 2 will have for teams. All teams will play 3 games which means there will be a some cross over games between teams. We will have a semi final and than a final. Any support or direction you can give me would be very much appreciate

Thanks so much for the sheet – a true life saver when it comes to the graft of writing sheets.

Do you have a sheet that only uses 2 groups of 5 teams?

Thanks

Mike

Thank you so much for lifting the heavy load!

I use your code on Google Sheets to easily keep score in two recreational volleyball competitions. From Google Sheets it publishes instantly on our web site (in an iframe). If you’re interested, take a look at www(dot)ardeahhw(dot)nl/?frontpagetab=4

Furthermore I use it in Excel for my yearly childrens volleyball tournament (20-30 teams in 4 groups). I have the templates ready, so I can easily organize a schedule. I keep track on a notebook during the tournament and show the result on a second monitor – children love that, you know how impatient they are.

Could not have done that without your core code for calculating the score (which is beyond my Excel skills), so thanks once again!

Dear Jos,

Was there an easy way to upload the excel to google sheets or did you transfer cell formulas manually?

Please disregard my request. I have successfully uploaded from excel to sheets the standard way and it works. Not sure what I did differently, but all formulas are there.

Is there anyway you would share this translated to google sheets i can not get it to work

Can you please send me one for 18 teams please, much appreciated

hello did they sent you the 18 teams sheet i really need one as well

Me too!

did you get an 18 team template? I tried to edit and get errors

hi there

i try to add a team in the excel and i following the video but it did not work for me how can i fix it is showing #/N/A and ###### on the row

did you figure this out? the weird thing is even if you don’t add anything, just edit a formula and change nothing it blows up. Not sure how any of it is working.

DO YOU HAVE A 18 TEAM TEMPLATE?

I NEED 18 SETS OF TEMPLATE I WILL BE VERY HAPPY IF YOU CAN SEND

Really nice job.

Is there any chance to make it for volleyball, where the winning team (with 3-0 and 3-1) gets 3 point, and the losing 0 points, but when the score is 3-2 in sets, the winning team gets 2 point and losing 1 point?

Thanks in advanced

I am looking to get an update for a 5 and 6 team Round Robin netball tournament – i need to different scoring options for a loss:

1. to score 1 point if the losing teams score is at least half of that of the winners

2. To score 0 points if the losing team scores less than half the score of the winners.

Can you provide that update option please?

Richard

Did you work out how to do this with the 50% point?

Hello,

firstly love this site and great templates.

I run an annual 1 day tournament so i only use 1 round and at the end of the 1st round I qualify teams to go through to the KO stages where I have a quarter, Semi and Finals.

To do the qualifications I need your table to include a Position column however this has to be based on the following criteria

1. Points scored

2. Goal Difference if points are the same

3. Goals for if the point And the Goal difference is the same

4. update position so I am able to ascertain the top 4 teams to go into the quarter finals.

currently I do this manually and i can often lose a lot of time because it is done onsite, manually, can you help me automate this process?

Hi,

The template for 4 teams means that the same team plays twice in every week.

Thanks,

Jake

many thanks!

Is the a way that you can change one you have the filter on for the tables. As would prefer it on the GF than PTS

Hi

Can you please share the password so i can edit the sheet

Thanks

Chris

Well done guys! For those who are interested, here is a fresh new one for 2019/20 season: https://www.someka.net/excel-template/premier-league-excel-template/

Is it possible to create an 18 team template?

Thanks

HI

You fixture generator is very user friendly especialy for me as I am voluntary football officical in Phoenix South African for an amateur Football association that deals with children from age 7 to 17.

however because we deal with a community we encourage as much team in a division as possible. You only have up to 16 team . Can this be increased to more than 16 team .

Hi would it be possible for you to create worksheets with 2 groups & tables next to one another which would then drop down into a senior semi & final with top 2 teams from both groups to create a Champions league final & then the next 2 best placed teams from both groups to create a Europa league final for groups of 4,5,6 teams.

I tried and failed by copying but data & dumping next to original. Our tournament is at end of June 2019. We would be really grateful for your help

Is there a possible suggestion for separating teams with exactly the same record, i.e. wins, losses, draws, pf, pa, pd or equal say on a head to head between the teams to be separated ?

Hello,

Could you please create a schedule for 20 teams?

Thanks

hi,

I noticed my file is password protected to add additional edits, can you provide the password to un protect the file for additional customizing..

thank you!

hi

how can we change to play only 2 time per round instead of 4 ?

Hi,

Thanks for the templates, it really helps a lot. I ‘m stuck on extending the rounds please any help would be appreciated.

cAN YOU PLESE TELL ME HOW I CAN INCREASE ROUNDS TO 25

Hello,

Could you please create a schedule for 17 teams? Thank you so much!

Hi,loved the templates, I have several indoor bowls leagues at my club that I run. I need a chart that reflects 20 matches all home not away. I tried copying the fixtures but results not updating, would I need 20 groups?

Hi,

Thanks for the current sheets, it really helps a lot. I need sheets for more teams please. 24 to 32 teams. Could you send me please?

Regards

Faried

Hi Faried,

Perhaps I could help you with this. Not sure if I have templates up to 32 teams for any sport though. Please send me an email: support_at_enterexcel_dot_com.

Br,

Joachim

I NEED 17 AND 18 SETS OF TEMPLATE I WILL BE VERY HAPPY IF YOU CAN SEND.

Dear Joachim,

First of all, I would like to thank you for such exceptional work on putting all these templates together.

I downloaded the 6 teams one and modified it a little for a baseball tournament (please send me an email in order to attach it).

This was modified for 6 teams, playing in 3 different fields at the same time, but sometimes we have more teams playing on 8 fields at different times, and not always have the same amount of weeks during each tournament.

I would like to know if you could walk me through on how to make any future templates without “round 1”, “round 2” etc. We also don’t use “points” in baseball, therefore don’t need the “Options” book. Also, we only use RF (Runs in Favor), RA (Runs Against) and RD (Runs Difference), but would like to know if there’s an easier way to modify it in regards to the number of teams there are in a certain tournament.

Best regards.

Tino.

P.S.: Had to modify the schedule according to an existing one already made.

Tino,

This is not my site, I have just helped a few guys in the comments section out 🙂

Jan Podlesak is the owner of this site and the templates provided here.

Br,

Joachim

Just wanna say thanks so much for making these

Most of us would probably admit that we are not completely computer literate and would require assistance. I have attempted to create my own template to facilitate 20 teams following the video instructions without success as no doubt others have tried. Is there any chance you could produce one to end my frustration? I am sure others would be equally as grateful. Thank you

Ray

Hi Ray,

I have a template like that I can send you.

Send me an email: support_at_enterexcel_dot_com

Br,

Joachim

Thanks Joachim

Ray

Hi I think thectemplates are great and I can make some adjustments, however I have a tournament coming up where they will do 2 points for a score draw. I know I could just add these as bonus points but it would be great to have the league update automatically.

Many thanks

Hi,

you can set this on sheet Options.

It is written in the article.

Absolute legend! I needed a quick spreadsheet of results for two different pools of tournaments and this was PERFECT! Absolute lifesaver. Thanks so much!

This is awesome!

Thanks so much and I’m so glad you are still keeping this going!

I have 3 groups x 5 teams and want to take the top 8 teams through to the knockout stage of the competition. Which is the fairest/most accurate way to do this. Do you have a schedule for this? Thanks

Hello

I’d like to set this up so that the ‘goal difference’ goes the other way as I would like to use this for golf. How would I do this?

Cheers 🙂

Hi,

Is there a way of adapting a 14 team league to suit teams which play in a 3 team venue per night.

e.g. 3 team grouped per night and play to games.

Hi I’d like an excel similar to your 4 team one but I’d like 2 groups wher the top 2 teams from each group go in to one set of Semi finals then Final (Main Cup) & the bottom 2 from each group go in to another set of semis & final (Sub Cup)

Hi

I need 52 round

We play each week which is in a year 52 weeks.

Please anyone can help me..

Thanks

Contact me via email please

Need bug help

Good morning! I love the brackets! However, I ran into some problems. In both the 8 and 9 team table that tracks wins, losses, points for/against, etc, there is a format issue I can’t figure out. It doesn’t track the points, and wins/losses for the first few when I input the scores. Basically they are getting credit for games played, but are not showing the right amount of wins/losses to equal the games played. Goals for/against also didn’t calculate. Again, I love the brackets and the hard work, so I am not complaining, at all. Thank you!

Hi

How do I set up a Tournement like round robin but it will be

8 Players B and 8 Players C , and play only B with C

Thanks

I like your spreadsheet but I did found error. Sorry, about that 🙂

I don’t know how to explain but it generates same pair twice .

team1 : team9 row 54

and again

team1 : team9 row 148

I don’t know how to solve this so can you help?

Hi. On which spreadsheet template did you find this error?

Hi There,

I have a league with 20 teams. Can I please have the template for this?

Thanks.

Thank you for the spreadsheets it helps a lot.

In our hockey league the points are different:

points for a win = 4

points for a draw with goals = 2

points for each team in the event of a goalless draw = 1

points for a loss = 0

The current spreadsheets only cater for 3 scenarios, can you assist it this case please. I’ve been trying for a year to do this myself but not successful.

Thank you

Very appreciated.

Hi Thanks for your great work.

Is there a way to add more round? I’m ready to learn.

I don’t want you to make it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I am a PE teacher this sheet is excellent!!

I have a need though for 8 Groups (A-H) not just A-D. If I create them myself (by creating new tabs and then copy/paste from Group A)groups E-H do not seem to update the table correctly.

Can you send me a sheet with 8 Groups please?

thanks so much

Jeremy

Hello,

in the article are instructions how to do that:

see Settings – how to add more groups

Hi

Great templates, I would like to adapt for table tennis where we play 10 games best of 5 sets and award 1 point per set so the maximum score is 30 points example final score could be 28 -2 and this would be the points I would like entered into the table which formula’s would I need to change and how please?

Regards Mike Gadd

Hi.

Do you know how to change the formulas so it will work in Google sheets? I would like to use your templates as a live document within a webpage and can only do this through Google sheets.. unless you know of another option?

I hope this can be done as your templates are perfect!

Please may you provide me with the password to see the hidden pages?

thank you

I would like to know if there is a template for 20 teams. Appreciate your help.

Is it possible to adapt the system to teams who share ground either within the division or with teams in higher leagues?

Hi There,

I have a league with 17 teams. Can I please have the template for this?

Thanks.

Hi There,

I have a league with 20 teams. Can I please have the template for this?

Thanks.

FUCK OFF!

Hi,

I am a high school pe teacher. I found your excel sheet very helpful and as close to something im looking for.

You may be able to assist with the next step.

I have a team generator sheet set up. What i would like to do is to link each player to a team (your worksheet) for each lesson, so when points are assigned to that team, it assigns it to that player(overall leaderboard). I generate different teams each lesson. Want to make it a year long competition of the most consistent student.

Hope that makes sense. I look forward to your response

Thanks

Hi John,

I know this is way late, but if you still need something like this send me an email and explain in further detail what you are looking for:

Any chance of a 20 team template being added to the site?

As Deena asked on 19 April, is it possible for 4 groups of say between 6 and 10 teams to appear on the same page with fixtures and tables? This would certainly enhance the features of this site.

Any way to add a shut out column? And how would i go about moving the GD column to go before GF and GA?

Need an 18 team schedule, can you please help out.

Thanks

Hello,

Great work !

Do you have a 20team template available?

Hi Can you send me a template for a 11 a side tournament, number of teams 6, they play each other once, the top 4 go through to Semi finals, then the winners of each semi final go through to the final, thanks.

Derek Davis

Hi can you send me 18 teams leauge shadule as two group with 8 teams for 10 months.Please send as soon as posible

This is amazing, thanks very much for sharing.

I want to add more groups and league tables to ONE sheet ?

This is instead of having individual sheets

This is fab! Is there a way to allocate countries to each team (eg ABC PLC are playing as England)? Also we’re only doing 1 group stage, then straight into semis and final……

thanks!

M-L

Hi,

These are great!

I have tried using the 6 tea tournament, but whenever I enter the results it doesn’t calculate the wins or points for each team but adds in the other statistics. Wondering if you could help me out/let me know if I am doing something wrong.

Thanks!

Do you have a 17 team bracket by any chance?

hello congratulations for his work could make the model free to 20 teams?

Hi Joachim

I’m running a soccer league in Cape Town, Khayelitsha and I have been using your excell sheet but this year we have 17 teams and the other division have 18 teams. Can you please send me your excel sheet with 18 and 17 teams.

Hi

is it possible to have 4 groups on a single page – with the fixtures and league tables for each group.

e.g. U7 division – 4 groups (A, B, C, D) with 6 teams in each group.

Hi

I am using the 5 team template but need 6 rounds instead of 4 but cannot seem to get the copied 2 rounds to link please can you help as need this for a junior netball league I am running?

Hi I run a pool league could you make a template for the following

for 8 teams

played

won

frames for

frames against

3 points for a win

and 1 point for every frame won

i would be very greatful for your help as i am really struggling doing it manually

Many Thanks

James

Thank you for the template. It really help as a starting point. Did some adjustment to it for Rugby tournament, to include bye, try bonus point and losing bonus point. Wish can find a way to share it here.

Thanks again

Is there a way to do this with an NHL schedule. I see the options, just would like to add more teams and set up league standings different.

hi 😀

thank you very very much for this templates.

i finally found what am looking for.

it really helps me bit by bit on learning how to create one.

thanks a lot cheers

Fantastic…. Fantastic…

Quick question

Is there a way of changing the points awarded for games to include 2 points for a score draw.

So end up with

3 for a win

2 for a score draw

1 for a no score draw

0 for a loss

We also use fair play points but I think I can add these into the bonus points box..

I currently use paper to run a 2 day tournament with 60 plus teams across 12 age groups so using this would be…. well LIFE CHANGING FOR ME….

Hi,

you can change points on the Options sheet. For extra points there is the Bonus/penalty points section (see in article). This is only way to do what you want. There will be no updates in the future, sorry.

Jan

I can`t thank you enough. I can`t get tired of thanking you buddy. Thanks so so damn much. This is what I have been looking for years. (since today I tried to make it by myself) This is absolutely great stuff. Superb! Well done.

Spread sheet is just what I want but it there away you can just play each team once in a round robin tournemant

Thanks that’s wonderfull

i am using your 6 teams template. only one group.

can you add a sheet that pulls from your GroupA sheet and makes a Draw for the 6 Teams and 3 divisions?

Hi,

you can easily add more group. See Settings – how to add more groups in the article. If you want to create knockout tournament you have to use some other tool.

Jan

Oh my god I am so thankful to your excel sheet. Your excel sheet really help me as a student and as a Human.

Is there any way to create home and away games within the rounds?

Well there are home-and-away games

Great template…came in very handy for a tournament we were in! Quick question though. Is there a way to add in a point for head to head wins? Two tournaments we’ve attended use the head to head match up as the first determining tie break.

Thanks

Hi,

Great Templates.

Our league awards one bonus point for each GF. Have to add this manually. Is there a way to do it automatically from the league table?

I see all of your templates for the tournaments. Where do I find the templates for the leagues?

Hi,

tournament template can be used also for league.

I have some league files (20 teams and 22 teams) and automated cup files, which I don’t mind sharing for free.

Just email me at m.haigy@googlemail.com and I’ll send some attachments to anyone who wants one.

Cheers.

Matt

Hi There, i was wondering, is it possible to add to the tournament pages an automated Knock Out stage too, or that would be too hard?

ps…thanks very much by the way, they are brill and very useful a donation is well deserved.

ps…I’ve made a small Donation, is not much but every little help they say 😛

If it’s a cup competition you need, there’s a way to create one.

If you’re familiar with using the “=” in Excel, you can create 32 fixtures, then 16, then 8 and so on by simply “equalling” the list where you type your team names in, multiple times. It can be done all the way to the cup final.

Once you’ve built your fixtures list (32s, 16s, 8s etc) you need to create a mini league of the 2 teams who are playing in each fixture. There are youtube videos that explain “RANK” and “VLOOKUP”. If each fixture has an equalled winner, the next round can be drawn automatically. All you need to do is type team names in and stick the scores in! You can have 2-legged games, replays and penalty shoot outs. Difficult to explain in this reply but gimme a shout if you need an Excel file with this system already created. Or I can make a special one for you.

Cheers

Matt

I am running a tournament and found your template on the net – and I have to say it is brilliant, well done.

You don’t happen to have a version that allows for score draws and a draw do you? Or could you advise on how to add? I am running a tournament with two groups of 6 teams.

Thanks loads

Graham

Hi,

Could you please help me produce a table based for 18 teams?

Thanks in advance.

hi i downloaded 14-team sheet but number of games played is not accurate. is there a way to fix it?? i am at the beginning of round 2 but number of played games stopped refreshing at 10.

i was able to find a walk around fix – i my panes frozen just below the table. after i unfroze them and added results from around 14 number of played games got updated.

i would appreciate if you posted a fix for this issues. thanks

Good Template, I downloaded the 16 teams template.

The only thing i would change is the fact that team one plays 15 games “home” and in round 2 15 “away” switching between home and way every time is better.

How can I create 10 teams point table in cricket

Like total 18 matches per team

Top 4 goes in semi final

And final

Thanks

Hi, Great format. Thanks so much. I am trying to use this for our softball competition, but our top grade only has 4 teams and needs to play 6 rounds to complete a season. How do I get the Table to keep adding points for rounds 5 & 6?

I’m looking for a spreadsheet to create fixtures in a swimming league with 6, 7 or ‘n’ number of teams entering.

Each team has one home gala against 3 other teams and will play against the other teams an even number of times or as close as. For a 7 team league each club would play the others twice in a season at various venues, once at home and three times at away clubs.

So for a 7 team league the grid would have 7 columns and 5 rows – the top row being the header for each home gala and the rows for the lane numbers – 1 to 4.

Is there a formula that would create a fixture list such as this that can be adapted according to the number of teams who enter each year?

Regards

Lev Baddley

I love the template, but would like to know if there is an easy way to adapt to my league’s 10 point system:

6 = win

3 = tie

0 = loss

1 point per goal UP TO 3 goals per game.

1 point for a shot out (opponent left at “0”)

So for example, Team A plays Team B, the score is 5:0

Team A gets 10 points (6 points for the win, 3 points for the goals, 1 point for the shot out). Team B gets 0 points.

Another example, Team C plays Team D, the score is 2:1

Team C gets 8 points (6 points for the win, 2 points for the goals). Team B gets 1 point (1 point for the goal).

Example 3, Team E plays Team F, the score is 5:5

Both teams get 6 points (3 points for the tie, 3 points for the goals).

Is there a way to adapt the point system to meet this criteria? If so, would you be able to create it? Thank you.

Hi,

I had the same problem. I’m using Bonus/penalty points section. It is not the best solution but it works 🙂

I would like to expand on the sports template and finding when I do add a column it compromises the formula; can you let me know how to work this out safely.

Hello,

where do you want to add column? What kind of column will it be? Do you need any extra calculations?

Hi – how can you add extra groups onto the same sheet without compromising the formulas? i.e. if you just want one sheet with groups A to H with 4 teams in each group.

Thanks a lot.

Hello,

in one sheet you can’t. In one file you can 🙂

What would be great is to be able to dynamically set the number of games for a season. I was playing with it a little but it really seems to be set by round of playing one team each time per round. What I am trying to do is something like schedule a 7 or 10 team group with an 8 game season.

A neighbour of mine has just inherited management of a local darts league and the format is 16 teams in four divisions, each playing each other once, then the league splits into two with the top eight playing each other once for promotion and likewise the bottom eight for relegation. At seasons end each team will have played 22 games. The league season has to be this short so as to fit in no less than three cup tournaments. Is there such a template for a league that “does the splits” as I’ve described. We’ve managed to organise this in the past, albeit in a bit of a long winded way, but is there a simpler way of doing it. No great shakes if not. This is really a shot in the dark.

hello, is that possible for a template with 48 teams like UEFA europa league??

table/fixtures/goals etc.

I create a few spreadsheets myself and I’d like to know how you get the table to auto sort so the leaders are in correct order as scores are updated. I’ve looked at the formulae and cannot copy and paste or replicate them.

Can you edit the points ?

For example

i want to do this as a darts group. with 2 rounds.

example we play 6 legs and every leg is worth 1 point.

if you draw 3-3 each player gets 3 points. no bonus points

if you win 4-2 the winner gets 4 points plus 1 bonus point for winning and the loser gets 2 points.

any chance you could edit this for me please with a 5 player and 4 player version.

if not i can input the points manually.

thank you

Yes, you can. There is sheet ‘Options’. There you can edit points for win, draw and loss.

But the sheet is pass protected and we can’t get in.

The team that forfeits gets 0 but the team that is forfeited against receives 1 point.

Hi,

i am busy organizing a cricket tournament, so that we can help kids find something to do instead of just wasting their time on the streets. I’m inviting 20 high schools, and it would be held over the space of a weekend. Now, the 20 high schools would be divided into 4 groups of 5. Each team plays each other once in the group with the top 2 qualifying for Gold Quarter Final Section. Teams 3 and 4 qualifies for the Silver Quarter Final Section, with team 5 being knocked out unfortunately. After the Quarter Finals there will be a Semi-Final for each section and likewise a final for each section. We will be having scouts at the tourney and hopefully they can spot a few sport stars of the future.

i came across your templates about a year ago, and find them to be the best (imho) i have found on the web. If anyone can create this, i know you can…I wish you the greatest of success in your life and may only the best of doors open for you in the future.

Khaled

Hi Khaled,

I can probably help you make this sheet and upload it to enterexcel_dot_com when I am done. However, I need you to answer a few questions first as I am not familiar with cricket.

How do you rank teams that end up with equal points?

What kind of league table format will you need: Is “Played Wins Draws Losses Points” enough?

How do you select quarter-final opponents? Group A winner vs Group B runner-up, Group C winner vs Group D runner up etc. or do you have a more creative format in mind?

Br,

Joachim

Enter Excel

Hi

If you are from the US, Cricket would be similar to Baseball with totally different rules lol.

There generally aren’t Draws in Cricket. There are…but very rarely, win/lose/draw should be fine – 3-1-0 being the general standard, but we can add an extra dimension we can say…for every 10 runs scored, We can give a 1 point bonus. So if team A vs team B and team A wins the match, they would get say 3 point and because they scored 100 runs they would get an extra 10 point giving them 13 point in total, team B lost in a close encounter, scoring 98 runs, so they would get no points for the loss but still get 9 points because they score 98 runs.

Group A winner vs Group B runner-up, Group C winner vs Group D runner up etc, would be fine to select the Knock Out Rounds.

Regards

Khaled

OK, thanks I will make a sheet where the point system is based on 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and additional 1 point per 10 runs completed.

Antything else I should take into consideration?

Have you ever done a 19 team schedule. We wanted to do a 4 game guarantee but after the 3rd game they are seeded in a place to play their 4th game and go to semis from there. However every way we do it someone plays an extra game….. any help would be awesome

Please send me a message on enterexcel_dot_com (links not allowed here) and explain further.

I could most likely help you, but I don’t really get what kind of league/tournament you are looking for.

Br,

Joachim

Great templates! I was hoping you could create a schedule for 4 teams, playing twice per week, for 10 weeks. The games can be random over the 10 weeks as long as everyone plays everyone equally!

Hi Christyne,

So each week team 1 plays two matches against two (unique) opponents, i.e. team 1 vs team 2 and team 1 vs team 4, but never team 1 vs team 2 twice in the same week?

Br,

Joachim

Exactly!

OK, I can fix that on Monday.

Br,

Joachim

Christyne,

Maybe I am tired, but isn’t it impossible for a team to meet the 3 other teams equally when you play 10 rounds and each team playing two matches per round?

That means 20 matches (10 rounds with 2 games) and the only solvable way is that a team plays two of the other opponents 7 times and the last opponent 6 times. So you either have to adjust the number of rounds (9 rounds and 12 rounds work) or make each round consist of 3 matches.

Br,

Joachim

You’re right… let me get back to you! We may just have the teams play each other 6 times and do something else with the remaining slots.

Hey J, the rounds don’t matter, as long as each team gets the same amount of games. So it doesn’t matter if one team only plays 6 times against another team. Does that make sense?

Christyne

Yes, it makes sense then. I can make one as I said. Is it 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss?

In terms of ranking criteria, I will apply the following ranking order: I) Points II) Goal Difference III) Goals scored, IV) Internal matches points V) internal goal difference VI) internal goals scored and VII) pre-season rank/”lottery”

Joachim

EnterExcel

I have made the template now, please go to enterexcel_dot_com and leave me a message under the feedback page, so I get your email and get send you the file.

Br,

Joachim

Hi,

Do you by any chance have 1 with 17 teams and 1 with 18 teams? 2 rounds are also enough. Thanks

I am making one for you know. How is it with points, just standard 3 poitns for win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss?

I will upload it to my website: enterexcel_dot_com

Br,

Joachim

Hi,

Standard like your other Templates is fine. Points can easily be edited. It’s teams that is hard to add. Thanks in advance

On that site you have a superb 18 team double round! We usually do 1 round and I could remove the extra rounds. But on those sheets cells are protected. Can you upload either both 17 and 18 team sheets unprotected or with single round?

If not the standard ones like the above are also fine thanks

Regards

Have uploaded the 18-teams double round robin now.

I have randomized the matches. If you would like a defined setup like team1 vs team2, team3 vs team4 etc or just choose matches yourself, let me know.

League table is ranked by the following order:

1) points

2) goal difference

3) goals scored

4) internal points/goal difference in matches between teams in question

5) pre-season rank (which you can manually enter in column D)

Let me know if it works ok.

Cheers,

Joachim

Hi,

I just seen this post. I had asked for double round just in case we decide to make 2 rounds. Like I said I usually delete the second round but the cells in your new sheet is protected. Can you please upload an unprotected version of 17 and 18 teams? or make them single round?

Thanks

I have uploaded it now to the same page, good luck =)

Br,

Joachim

Hi just came across you template and was wondering if you would be able to change to 20 teams 10 weeks.

Thanks for your help I am trying to put this together for the American Legion cribbage league.

I could perhaps help you, but how does it work with only 10 weeks?

/Joachim

Sorry, meant also to add, I am organizing a Foosball tournament. Each team will play each other once, each match is best of 5 sets. I want the points to be awarded based on no. of sets won, so for example if Team A beats team B 3-2, Team A gets 3 points, Team B gets 2 points. Tied teams in the table will be ranked on Set difference

I can probably fix one you. Let me look into it tomorrow.

Br,

Joachim

OK, I have made one for you.

26 teams

Single round robin

1 point per win in best of five

Randomized order (let me know if you need a specific round order)

Will upload it to enterexcel_dot_com, under “spreadsheets”

Br,

Joachim

Cheers mate

Thanks but I need a password. Do I need to make a donation to get this ?

Complete the form on the webpage, so I get your email and can send you the password.

Donate if you feel for it =)

Cheers,

Joachim

Hi, great spreadsheet. I don’t suppose you have a template for 26 teams by any chance ?

Can you make a basketball one

What kind you looking for?

/Joachim

Hi

Is it possible to get one with added data for leg scoring as well as goal scoring so 4 columns of inputs? If not is it easy to edit?

Hey, do you mean like columns showing “home” and “away” stats?

Br,

Joachim

hi

my tables have 6 columns plus the usual pl won etc

so P W L LF LA LD GF GA GD PTS

Where you imputed the goals for each match i.e 3.2 and it caculates a win with 2 points i need to add data to LF LA and caculates LD as well.

so a fixture for me would be

team 1 v team 2 i would imput 4 values games for and against and legs for and against and table sorts by most points .

its a pool league

Hi again, I am not following you completely on your request. Is there anywhere on the web where I could see an example of what you are looking for or can you manually type in an example here?

Br,

Joachim

this is from a dart league..basically what u have already done but two extra column in results to imput extra dada for legs scores

http://www.trentvalleydartsleague.co.uk/downloads/stats/winter-2012/tables.pdf

I replied with link but didnt go said need moderation

table would look like this

P W L LF LA LD GF GA GD PTS

on the fixtures where you input the result i looking for

team 1 6 4:3 3 team2 the 6 and 3 are added to the LF LA columns and 4:3 are added to the GF GA column as tbey are now. and PTS as tbey are now. im assuming it knows the win buy the greater number.

So if match 1 ends like this:

match1 team1 5 4 3 1 team2

this would be the league standings?

p w d l LF LA LD GF GA GD points

team1 1 1 0 1 4 3 1 5 1 4 3

team2 1 0 0 1 3 4 -1 1 5 -4 0

bit difficult to type here

MATCH RESULT

TEAM 1 10 5:3 6 TEAM 2

TABLE WOULD BE

P W L LF LA LD GF GA GD PTS

TEAM1 1 1 0 10 5 +5 5 3 +2 2

TEAM 2 1 0 1 5 10 -5 3 5 -2 0

Ok, then I get the structure, but what is the point of showing this LF LA LD score and will it be used for any calculations of league standings, i.e. after points, goal difference and goals scored?

Sorry, I am not into the rules and point systems of pool leagues/tournaments.

/J

Hi yes it will

The table sorts in the following criteria

MOST POINTS THEN IF TIED THE FOLLOWING IS APPLIED LD (GREATER NUMBER) THRN LF (GREATER NUMBER) GD (GREATER NUMBER) GF (GREATER NUMBER)

Trying to fix it now 🙂

/Joachim

HI

YEH THATS IT JUST SEEN YOURS .. 😀

How many teams in the league and does each team play the other teams once or twice?

/Joachim

9 at present

4 times long season

Go check it at my website:

enterexcel_dot_com/spreadsheets

Let me know how it works out.

Br,

Joachim

enterexcel_dot_com/spreadsheets.html

Hi – Yes pretty good. Prob i got is i need to manually move the fixtures around so they in current order. On the blank one on here i managed to edit the fixtures copy and pasting to correct weeks.

A lot of fixtures get moved from original weeks due to 2 teams at one venue etc and 1v2 3v4 etc i cant match up. Other than that its really good.

I did forget one thing – The total points (pts) is 2 for a win plus the GF so for example a 5-4 win would give team 7 points in total.. its a sum of GF PLUS GW (2 POINTS)

Is it possible i can manually move the fixtures and if so how do i dontate for your time.

Its really good though.

Hmm let me think a bit on how to solve the customised fixtures issue.

The point system is easy to fix.

Can a match in some way end in a draw or should I remove it from the league table?

No there is no draws at all.

I tried going down to the fixture further down to imput the result but it came up as points scored but no games played . maybe cos i didnt do it in order. If i was generating the fixtures its no problem but fixtures are already done and all over the place. I dont have these to hand atm but they chop and change weekly.

great work many thanks.

Ok, so I fixed the point thing. And I will remove draws from the league table.

Just to make sure, if someone in theory would win 100-99 then they would get 102 points, 100 in GF, 99 in GA and +1 in GD?

THATS ITS YES

THE LOSING TEAM WOULD GET 99 POINTS AS WELL .. ITS A POINT PER GF AND TWO FOR OVERALL MATCH WIN

SORRY CAP 😀

Regarding the fixtures issue. I mean by the end of the season all players will have played each other 4 times. So the list of fixtures in my sheet is correct, right? Just not in correct order?

I see two easy solutions and two a bit more tricky:

1) If you have the fixtures you could send them to me and I could plot them in (of course that doesnt help if a game is postponed)

2) I could add another “highlight player/team” option so it is easy for you to find a specific matchup and enter scores for that one and then you could enter the date/venue in the “notes” cell

3) I could just make the “matches” section blank and then you select from a dropdown menu which players faced each other and plot in the score. And I could add summary section where you could see the total of games each player has played.

4) I could expand the “matches” section and make you just cut/paste matches up and down in in

Not sure if any of these alternatives solves your problem?

Hehe ok, so I made it harder than it was, cause you are saying that basically all GF = 1 point, no matter if you won or lost that match.

So basically just sum up wins + GF to find total points over a season.

If you won 3 matches and scored 25 GF during a season, you end the season with 3x2p + 25p = 31p, right?

/Joachim

HI, yes i dont mind either way if i have to insert the matches played each week (drop down) or copy paste thats fine with me. they chop and change all the time. If possible rather have it in a nice neat line all the way down.

Yes thats right 3 wins 6 points plus the 25 GF during those 3 games. Sorry im not good at explaining myself

Heheh

Sorry i just tried that imputting a result on week 11 housten v new york and the stats went in the table but no win loss recorded? Is that cos i did it in wrong order?

Ok, I’m uploading a new version now. Check the same page again.

Let me know if it is ok now. I made it so that the drop-down menu will be alphabetically sorted.

I also removed draws from the league standings. And if you put a match as a draw now, it will just add the GF for each team that played that match.

/Joachim

Ok, the newest version is uploaded 🙂

/Joachim

Strange with your problems when inserting data in round 11. I seemed to have the same problem when I have the file locked, but when I unlock it, everything seems to be working correctly. I’ll check it out =)

that my friend is absolutely stunning. I cant thank you enough!

I did make one mistake on table sorting 🙁

Sorry Its PTS THEN LD (HIGHER NUMBER) THEN LA (LOWER NUMBER) I SAID IT WAS A GREATER NUMBER. THEN LF GREATER NUMBER.

Its fine though ive taken up enough of your time.. I will donate through the main site? is that right.?

Please explain sorting/ranking once more, so I get it hehe. Was a bit unclear.

If matched ended like this:

Team1: 3 1 2 4 :Team2

Would it be:

Team2 6points 1W 0L 1LD 2LF 1LA 4GF 3GA 1GD

Team1 3points 0W 1L -1LD 1LF 2LA 3GF 4GA -1GD

NO THE POINTS ETC ARE FINE THATS PERFECT…HEHHE – ITS THE TABLE CRITERIA IF POINTS ARE TIED.

SO TABLE SORTS

PTS IF TIED OF PTS FOR EXAMPLE 2 TEAMS ON 10 POINTS

THEN WE GO

LD (HIGHEST NUMBER)

LA (LOWEST NUMBER)

LF (HIGHEST NUMBER)

TO DETERMED THE POSITION

I MADE A MISTAKE ORIGINALLY I SAID LA WAS HIGHEST NUMBER IT SHOULD OF BEEN LOWEST NUMBER

Ok, I get it.

But then lowest sum of LA overall (all games)

or

only lowest LA or sum of LA in the matches between the two players in question?

LOWEST NUMBER OF LA OVERALL.

SO ITS

PTS

LD (HIGHEST)

LA (LOWEST)

LF (HIGHEST)

tinyurlDOTcom/zfnn6zx

TEAM 1 1 1 0 24 5 19 8 1 10

TEAM 2 1 1 0 25 6 19 8 1 10

EVEN MADE A MISATAKE WITH THAT SCREEN SHOT LOL

LA IS SMALLEST TO LARGEST

tinyurlDOTcom/gn6sbwj

TRY AGAIN

Ok, it was a bit tricky actually to implement a min value to the overall scoring, but I think I found something that works now.

I’ll upload a new version within 2min, so check the page and see if it works correctly.

Luckily, since I had to double check now, I found an error in the scoring calculation, a minor one, but still, good to realise and now that error is corrected.

/Joachim

oh yea thats super..thank you so much!!!

amazing i only wish i could work excel in this way

please send me your paypal email for donation

Hi

Does someone have a 24 team template they can share??

Hi Ben,

What kind of sheet do you need? Just a standard league with 24 teams, two matches vs each team?

Br,

Joachim

Anyways, Ben – let me know if you need one. I have made one with 24 teams with a double round robin.

Options include team names, pre-season rating (to solve if two or more teams have equal points, goal difference, goals scored and internal results) and points given for win, draw and loss.

I also have one with 20 teams if anyone needs.

Br,

Joachim

Please sand to me 20 teams I need it .

best regards

Hi

I have a tournament coming up.

12 teams in 2 groups – playing each other once

Top 4 of each group (points then g/d) go to a quarter final knock out, then semi, then final etc.

Can you help with that please?

Hi, could you possibly create an 18 team template for download please.

This template helps us a lot in the tournament. Great Help!!!

good templates thanks

Hi

The template is very useful and thanks for this. I have a question -usually when one team doesnt arrive at the field they loose a game by 2-0. What happens if two didnt arrive of course they both will loose points but how can i put it into your excel sheet.

Hi, using this for a football league , need to award match as a “home win” but no goals . Cannot seem to work out how to do this so that “Games Played” adds up correctly for all teams , can anyone help ?

So David, you need a standard league with double round robin just with an option to set a game as home win w/o any goals? I assume it will still count as a regular win, awarding the home team 3 points?

How many teams in your league?

Br,

Joachim

Need to set for either H – W (home win) or A-W (away win) both no goals . League has 6 Divisions ranging between 8 to 10 clubs in each .

Hi David,

Could you just please try to show me an example here, for example one match and how the table would look after. Would it for instance look something like:

Match 1:

Team 1 vs Team 2 HOME_WIN

League standings after match 1:

1) Team 1 Played 1 Home_Wins 1 Home_draw 0 Home_losses 0 Away_wins 0 Away_draws 0 Away_Losses 0 Points 3

2) Team 2 Played 2 Home_Wins 0 Home_draw 0 Home_losses 0 Away_wins 0 Away_draws 0 Away_Losses 1 Points 0

Sorry for the broken formatting, but not so easy with this comment section.

If it looks anything like above I could probably fix it tomorrow

Br,

Joachim

I meant on the league standings:

Team 2 Played 1*

Hi Joachim

Sorry for length of time replying however ended up manually altering tables until end of season . My issue was that when a team defaults and does not play a game , I have to award the game (ie the 3 points , without awarding any goals. Problems are that if I have a match (Team A V Team B ) and Team B default , if I enter Home_Win in results columns it gives the points to TEAM B , should be Team A. I have discovered that if I enter Walk_Over in results columns then it awards Win,Loss &Points correctly , but does not show the game as PLAYED for either team. Please see example below after one game with Team B defaulting .

Premier Division GP W D L GF GA GD PTS

Team A 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 3

Team B 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0

I use 5 separate templates for 5 Divisions , number of teams is either 10 or 12 in each Division

Thanks

David

i know i am not lazy cos i have spent hours and hours trying to work it out but i am not very excel savvy i used this template last season for 13 teams but it has now grown to 18 teams can anyone work out this template as is for 18 teams for me it would be greatly appreciated

Hi how do i remove the significance of goal difference and allow goals scored to take priority?

We have 14 teams that play each other once a week which means they play for thirteen weeks….our problem is we have played our first matchs starting with team one vs team two (1v2) and (3v4) (5v6) (7v8) (9v10) (11v12) (13v14)…but now we can’t figure out the next twelve weeks making sure each team meet the others only once…….can you figure this out for us ?

Is it possible to have the first tie breaker be the team with the least GA?

Thanks!

Is it possible to have the first tie breaker be Head to Head? i did a mock run up and it had team 3 ahead of team 2 in the standings even though team 2 beat them. i assume you have it set for goals for as the first tie breaker.

Thank you for building this, it saved me a huge amount of time. I had to modify things a little bit to make the schedule run horizontally instead of vertically (as preferred by league members), but you did all the heavy lifting. MAC, Songtan Si Dart Association President.

Lawn Bowls matches have three rinks and there are 2 points on offer in each rink. The Team that scores the most (shots) gains a further 4 points. Maximum of 10 per match. Win two = 4 points but gain the most (shots) on the day = 8 points ‘Losing team gets 2 points for the rink they did win.

Problem: How can this be formatted to give points to each team in the points column.

Hi,

read the “Bonus/penalty points” section. There is what you want.

Hi, can I please get the password to the protected options sheet. Thanks

Hi,

I’m sorry you can’t. Important cells are unlocked.

Thank you, so much for this, it really helped me make my tournaments successful.

Hi there.

Fantastic sheets.

I wanted to discuss how to add an elimination phase after the group phase: so when the winners & runners up of the groups then meet.

Brilliant and God bless!

This is amazing!! THanks.

What’s the password to unprotect the OPTIONS sheet?

I’m trying to create a 20 team league where each team plays 16 games. Can anyone help modify this file for that?

Would it be possible to use scores for the points to generate the table as follows

Team 1 scores 16 Pts playing team 2 who score 4pts.In a game we play for a total of 20 pts .therefore the table would be

Team 1 16pts

Team 2 4 pts

Hi , how do i adjust it for 9 teams?

Reply me soon.

Hello,

I am trying to create a double header schedule with 14 teams,each team plays 2 games vs a different opponent and each team has the same number of early, middle and late games approximately.. The sport is basketball and we have 2 courts. The league only plays on 4 sundays and each team only gets 4 games, so they wont even play everyone once. It would be great to have the doubleheaders back to back or with only one game in between. Any suggestions. I really need help. Thanks

i just sent a question about doubleheader schedule, i mistakenly put that teams will play 4 games, they will each play 8 games. thank u

Hi

I Have an idea for tourneys. Say you Have 12 players Which you give a number. Lets Say there will be 4 players on each team. Lets Say in game one nr 1-4-6-10 is to play 2-3-8-9. In game 2 the rest (5-7-11-12) meets a random draw of the other numbers.

What i mean here is that there are no teams, but just players. Players that are on winning teams the most will win the tourney.

There are 2 tings to consider, a random draw of numbers, mening that there are new teammates for every game and that all players play the same amount of game. Is this possible to do in excel? Takk for any help

Thank you very much for the table sample very useful just the right one for my local street tournament

Is there a template for 20 teams? I tried using the video but is too time consuming

Regards,

Mark

Will be using it for our tournament.

Thanks!

16 Teams error

$18,

Options should be $19

How would you do the template for 18, 20 & 24 teams IN A LEAGUE?

Hi,

I have just uploaded the video guide how to do that.

where I can’t find it?

Hi,

It’s above in this article. Section: How to update and create more teams template.

Jan.

I’m in Prague ad have a need for excel for 61 teams that divide into wo groups later.

Could you help me if I hireded you please.

Mark

Hi Mark,

thank you for your offer. Many people want me to do some modifications in my templates. I’m sorry, but it’s not possible. I have some other projects and Excel-example.com is only for fun. However, there is a solution :). I created the video guide that explains a lot. So, anyone can update this template now.

Regards

Looking for template with unbalanced groups.

Group A and B with 5 teams , Group C and D with 6 teams

Hi,

If it’s not necessary to have it in 1 file, you can use 5 teams and 6 teams template.

What I was looking for but for 8 teams, there should be 14 games each (7 home + 7 away).

Template gives 16 games with all teams duplicating two matches???

Mystifier,

Can you expand on your comment which requires clarification

The 8 team template can be used for 2 rounds of 7 games each for teams giving them 14 matches (7 home and 7 away). How does the template offer 16 games? The other rounds are optional.

Ray

Hi,

I checked the template and it is OK. It gives 7 games per ROUND for each team.

I’m looking to create a league table & fixture list for a nine team ice hockey league. Which will need home & away fixtures, goals for & against, two points for win & none for a loss & one point for an over time loss. Could you recommend a way of doing this, please?

Thank you

is there a calculation to look at the row that see the gd is under 7points an awards the bonus points and also looks at a row that if i put in so i not how many goals are scored will award the bonus point on each round though

Hi,

I love your template, but is there a way to make it for 6 rounds, not just four? I’m not good with Excell so I tried to copy/paste but it no longer caluculates.

Thanks Kristal

Hi,

the formulas are complicated. Simple copy and paste is not enough 🙁 Unfortunately, I’m not going to create more than 4 rounds templates, sorry. But I’m preparing the video instruction how to create/update my templates. So then, you or somebody will may be able to create what you want.

Hi Jan,

Do you know when you will put the video instructions on line, we love your template but need it to have 9 rounds.

Kelly

Hi,

video guide is online :). I hope it helps you.

GRACIAS POR SU TIEMPO…

Good day

I am looking for 6 teams in one group playing each other twice?

Regards

Hi,

you can use the template: 6 teams in each group. There are 4 rounds but there is no need to fill all of them. You can use only the first 2 rounds.

Wow! Thank you so much for this, Jan. I am currently running a 33-team FIFA tournament at the boarding school I teach at, and I love the template, but am not sure how to alter it to make it 33 teams. Any tips or advice? We are trying to make it so each team plays 16 games, not every team once. Those 16 games will just be against random opponents. Thanks for taking the time to do all that you have done.

Cheers,

Carmine

Thanks Jan for adding the 16 teams template.

You are a legend.

Regards

Dobrý den, máte prosím soubor pro 20 týmů? Děkuji 🙂

nebo alespon navod prosim, posilam Vám malý donate za to co už používám je to super díky! 😉 Ale potreboval bych pro 20 mužstev :/

Dobrý den,

o šablonu pro 20 týmů si píše více lidí, takže se do ní asi pustím. Nedokážu ale říct, kdy to bude 🙂 Nicméně chystám video, kde bych chtěl ukázat, jak podobnou šablonu vyrobit/upravit. Potom ji třeba vytvoří někdo dříve než já.

Hi,

This is a great spreadsheet and saved me a lot of hassle to get to this stage.

Are you intending to add a facility for semi finals and finals at all?

I am organising a small squash tournament where there will be 2 groups of 6 with the top 2 of each group going to a semi final for the “cup” and the bottom 2 of each group going to a semi final of a “plate” and it would be good to show this progress too on the sheet…I will probably be able to put together something, but wondered if you had considered this? Thanks, Jeff.

Hi,

I was thinking about finals, semi finals, quarter finals, … when I was creating the first template. There is a lot of combination how to schedule play off, so I decided not to do it. I think there are a lot of templates for play off, just try use google 🙂 If someone finds the nice one, I will be glad to place the link here.

Good day

Anyone that can assist.

We have a football league with 2 groups of 6 teams each. each group plays home and away. That’s the 1st round.

In 2nd round the 1 group play the teams in the other group once only. It work out that teams will play 3 home and 3 away in 2nd round

Is there a fixture example of this type of tournament

Thanks

Roy

Roy.volkwyn@gmail.com

Hi Jan,

Wondering if you can add a template for 16 teams as this is the number we have in a lawn bowls tournament we run in Torquay Australia. We also have 3 groups of 14 teams and your template is perfect for the draw and ladders for these groups.

Regards Wayne

Hi Wayne,

there it is. I have just added 16 teams template.

Hi there, one thing i cant figure out and i hope you can help me, how did u setup the sheet so that the table (H3:P8) automatic sorts/rank/arrange? You did it without using the methods such as “auto filter” or “converting it to a table”, which i find ugly with the drop down links over the data. And i can’t seem to find a written “macro” ether, please share how u did it.

Thank you.

Hi Gavin,

there is the hidden table in the S – AB columns. It contains auxiliary calculations for GP, W, D, L, … There is also the rank column that is important for final sorting. The visible table uses only lookup functions like INDEX and VLOOKUP to place data in the right order. I tried to do this as simple as possible so I decided to not use macros. However, there are some very complicated formulas that are made as an array formula.

TY! And great work! Really awesome sheet!

Gav

can yu tell mi wich formulas use, , becasu I trying to create groups like you but doesn’t work.

Hi,

you don’t need any formula. Copy the whole worksheet like in this tutorial: http://easykey.uk/excel/a-quick-way-to-copy-an-excel-worksheet

Have to say a massive thanks for creating this! it was a insanely helpful base for starting a score tracker for a primary school football tournament that I have run for 200 children!

Thanks again – Chris

Hi Jan, this is great stuff.

I can use this for a Lawn Bowls social tournament in Torquay, Australia.

We have 4 groups. 3 with 14 teams and 1 with 16 teams.

Are you likely to add more downloads for 16 and more teams in the future?

Wayne

I am after a league table set up for a snooker league.

Although it will show wins and loses the points will not be worked from them. The will be for Frames won and lost.

Example Team A V Team B

Team a win 5 frames to 3. Team A will get 5 points and Team B 3 points. Team A still get a win and Team be a loss.

Also can it be done where putting players names in gives them a point for winning there game?

Thanks

These are great thanks. I am wanting to use goal percentage (goals for divided by goals against, times 100) rather than goal difference but I’m not sure how to change it. Are you able to show a way to modify this? Cheers

Hi,

it’s easy. Just write the new formula next to the table. For example =M14/N14*100 for Pirates in the picture above.

Jan,

Sorry to ask again.

Any chance of a template for 13 teams?

Ray

Hi Ray,

there it is. Templates for 13 and 15 teams. Can I ask you, what sport are you scheduling?

Jan

Jan,

Not so much a sport but fantasy dice competitions

Ray

hi

I tried a 10 team template today with 4 pitches avaliable. That didn’t work out. Is it possible to make a template where you can adjust setup for x numbers of pitches? I could have made my tourney and split the teams into 2 groups. But, then, to make everyone meet each other I have to manually set up these games. So, a template where you could deside on number of pitches would be rally nice. Thanks.

Jan,

In addition to Kevin’s request of 19 November for a template for 15 teams, would it be possible for fixtures for 13 teams aswell?

When you have the time of course.

Thanks

Ray

hi! possible to include 15 teams? I’ll be happy to donate via paypal… thanks in advance!

Jan,

These tables / leagues are fantastic. Please could you point me in the direction of the one that has 3 points for win, 2 for score draw, 1 for no score draw and 0 for a loss.

Many many Thanks

Jan,

Apologies for asking again.I imagine you are busy but would it be possible to add a further template for 11 teams when you have the time?

Thank you

Ray

Hi Ray,

I’m not busy, I’m lazy 🙂

Here it is.

Jan

I need a template for futsal. Only one pitch would be used and I need one for 3 teams and one for four teams. Would that be possible?

Hi John,

You can use 4-teams template and 3-teams template I have just created.

Jan,

Just one more request from myself.

Would you be able to include a template for 11 teams?

Most grateful if you could.

Your updates so far have been excellent and have greatly enhanced the site

Ray

Hi would like to use these spreadsheets for a futsal comp. In my comp the first couple of games there could be some swapping of teams in divisions – how can I do this so the teams keep their points from previous games?

Hi, it’s simple. Points from previous games write in the Bonus/penalty points section.

Is it possible to have a sheet depending on how many fields you are playing on? If you look at the sheet above with 4 teams, saying you only have one field then the second game should be the two teams not playing the first match, agree?

nice sheet, but i can’t use it on galaxy tab. The table colum is all “value” Tell me how to use it, please

This template uses advanced formulas and it is designed for MS Excel only. It may not work correctly in other programs.

How can i add another round of fixtures for template with 4 teams. we play in a league of 4 teams and 5 rounds in which we play with each other once for each round. there are only 4 rounds in the template, can anyone help? thank you

Hi we do a soccer league in which we have 4 teams and each team plays each other so thats 3 games and we do this for 5 weeks so 5 rounds. How do i add another round? on the 4 team template there are only four rounds but id really appreciate if someone could help me figure out how to add another round.

thanks.

Jan. Have adapted your programme for an indoor bowls club running various leagues of differing numbers of teams but we are desperate for a league for 16 teams. Can I adapt one of your existing league programmes or could you write one to accommodate 16 teams

JohnHansford

Can you do up for 20 teams versing each other once

Can you do a template for 20 teams versing each other once?

Fantastic spreadsheet. Thank you very much.

Would you happen to have one for 9 teams?

Why not 🙂 here you are, enjoy it.

Jan,

Thank you for the improvements which offer more scope for people running leagues.

The bonus and penalty point facility is particularly important and welcome as it makes for unlimited points options

Improved ranking of tables has enhanced accuracy.

As templates go, it is ideally self-contained allowing for a league to be updated on one page as it were.

I am sure others will echo my opinions of this excellent site.

Ray

Is there anyway you could make a league that works on win percentage? Some of us would play more matches than others and we still want to know who is the best…by calculating win percentage it is fair but I have no idea how I would go about that?? Please help!

hi,

I am trying to duplicate this but to my specification. I can’t seem to get the formula:

=SUM((home=V3)*(homescore>visitorscore),(visitor=V3)*(visitorscore>homescore))

to work. even if i try and manually enter home, homescore etc into the formula.

any help will be appreciated.

thanks

Hello,

do you enter this as an array formula using CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER?

I’ve been racking my brains on this all day.

I’m in the same boat, having put a lot of hours into my own attempted version before eventually finding your wonderful resource.

But I’m unable to create the homescore, visitorscore options in a way that Excel recognises. I presume this is a shortcut to some kind of VLOOKUP formula (in formula builder?) but I’m getting a bit out of my depth with it now.

Any pointers to what makes the homescore and visitorscore tags work would be much appreciated.

Thanks

do you have a template for 14 teams

Thank you so much for this wonderful spread sheet. I am using it at school for school tournaments and class matches

SOMETHING TO IMPROVE:

Can you re arrange the fixture to be in a way that NO ANY TEAM GOES INTO THE SECOND GAME UNTILL ALL TEAMS HAVE PLAYED THEIR FIRST GAMES.

Jan,

Are you now in a postion to consider my upgrade suggestions of 30 June? These excellent and useful templates would be enhanced if you could:

1-provide templates for 14 and 16 teams

2-include a penalty point deduction facility and

3-able to rank teams on goals scored if points and goal difference are equal

These appear to be the main ideas put forward by those who have offered comments.

Ray

Hello Ray,

I was busy in my other jobs and I needed a little break from Excel. Now I’m back and I will try to improve this template to be super fantastic 🙂 I want to thank everyone for inspiring suggestions.

Hi,

This template is almost perfect for a cribbage league I am running.

In my league each cribbage match will play 3 legs so the score will be 1-2, 2-1, 0-3, or 3-0. Is there a way to give a bonus point to any player winning 3-0?

e.g.

0 points for loss,

3 points for 2-1 win,

4 points for a 3-0 win.

Would be more than happy to donate if you could help me with this in any way.

Regards, Pheobe.

Thanks for the spread sheets, daughter using for carnival, so thanks again.

Jan,

From what people have suggested, it seems that the 3 major additions to this excellent template would be:

1-template for 14 and 16 teams

2-penalty point deduction

3-ranking based on goals scored if points and goal difference are equal

Ray

Can you provide a template for 14 teams

Wondered if you could assist with a 14 team sports tournament?

Great job!

May I suggest to put a e.g. “Fair-Play” column in which fault are counted and used rank in case of equal points?

Hi,

Many thanks for providing this template. Are you able to adapt this template so that if points are equal and goal difference are also equal, then the ranking will be adjusted based on goals scored?

Many thanks

Hi, This is great for my son’s footy tournaments. I that saw you had a message on 12th May 2014 regards changing the formulae to take into account 2 points for score draw and 1 for 0-0 draw. I have seen other spreadsheets that enable amendments to be done to the points tally by adding or subtracting a point. The other sheets called them penalty points. Could that be incorporated, if you haven’t been able to amend as per the request yet? If you have amended, could you let me have please.

Hi, thank you for your comments and suggestions. I have received many requests same as yours. So, it’s time to do some more upgrades. I think I’m able to improve the formula and settings as you requested. Stay tuned 🙂

How can adjust after 2nd round

Hi, now you can use up to 4 rounds.

I want to Calculative Chart huge data made a format which is provide me financial report

Hi,

i need an excel spreadsheet for two day tournament for one group containing 5 Teams.

Do somebody has any?

thnx and regards.

great template. I am using the ten teams for a bowls league but the only problem is that they play each other both home and away. Any ideas how I can modify it to allow for this. I really appreciate your efforts.

regards

Allan

Thanks these are great.

Is it possible to change the scoring system as we want it to calculate 2 points for score draw and 1 for a 0-0

Hi

Great speed sheets this help with planning our fixtures and tables for our Football tournament. Only is want change the scoring so it two points for score draw and 1 for 0-0 how is this possible?

Hi, this template is amazing. How can i change it for 3 teams championship and make it a lot of rounds? Thanks

great worksheet just need to be able to schedule for 15 rounds for 4 teams. Any easy fix??!!

Cheers

Thanks 🙂 15 rounds for 4 teams is some kind of league. This worksheet is primary for tournament that contains groups and one team plays with other only once. However, I have plans to create template for a league. But it will take some time.

Hi, I have finally done the corrections in formulas. The table is now sorted by points and goal difference and I plan to create another versions with a different number of teams. I would like also create a template for the league. So stay tuned.

Can somebody upload excel with 4 teams in each group, home and away leg (6 matches for one team) or to show me how do i need to do that?

Dear sir, thank you very indeed for your sharing, it is really useful for our league which we don’t know how to record it easily.

I wish you success all the time with your career!!!

Best Regard

Vatey

Hi,

Could you do up a template for 13 teams please. I am hopeless with excel and tried to add an extra team on your 12 team but had no success.

Kind regards,

Jonn

Hi and big thank you for this template. I do have a problem, though.

I need a schedule help. I have 4 teams in a group, but need to make Home and Away leg. So 2x 6 games. I don’t know how to modify table array to “add” and count the second leg.

Any help is appreciated.

My specific problem is that in your W cells you have:

=SUM(($AG$3:$AG$8=V2)*(ISNUMBER($AH$3:$AH$8));($AK$3:$AK$8=V2)*(ISNUMBER($AJ$3:$AJ$8)))

I tried to increase that array for 2nd leg and another 6 games. I widened array but I always get #VALUE! error and I don’t understand why.

I basically need this:

=SUM(($AG$3:$AG$14=V2)*(ISNUMBER($AH$3:$AH$14));($AK$3:$AK$14=V2)*(ISNUMBER($AJ$3:$AJ$14)))

But changing 8 to 14 keeps giving me error. Even visually the array seems fine. What am I doing wrong?

Ok, I managed to deal with that problem. I was stupid enough to press Enter when changing formula, instead of CTRL-SHIFT-Enter. Now that works. But…

When I enter result in 2nd Leg now, main table recognizes it as a Played match, but other cells don’t. Home and Visitor scores are not calculated, points too. Not sure where can I edit Home and Visitor functions to increase their array on the expanded table.

Ok, now I’m spamming. 🙂

I figured it all out and modified the table. Everything is working now except sorting on goal difference…

It will sort the teams on points but if two teams have same points, the table won’t compare goal difference so it can happen that -3 will be above +2.

I believe it’s all sorted in formula:

=X3*Options!$B$2+Y3*Options!$B$3+Z3*Options!$B$4

I just don’t know how to include another function that would first sort by points and if points are equal then it would sort by GD (column AC in my table).

Thanks. And sorry for spam, but this is the best sheet (out of 20 I tried) and I’m putting some efforts in it. 🙂

Hi Zero,

How did you manage to change the 2nd leg which is the win, draw, loss and points different. I can’t seem to change the Home and Visitor function? Can you show us how is done

Hi the Sports template is great but I need one for 14 teams is this possible to do

Thanks

Mike

Hello everyone,

thank you for your comments. I will try to improve the template to reflect the goal difference. Then, I plan to create a new version that will be able to do more (thanks Ray for inspiration). Please be patient.

An easy way to make a ranking on points and goal difference is the following:

multiply points by 10000

multiply gd by 100

make a ranking by this results

greetings

Jan,

A good sporting template in that the league table appears on the same page as the results. However, Hassan Abazari is correct to state that the goal difference problem needs to be resolved as outlined in his post of October 13th.

Are you able to:

1-ensure teams/players with the same number of points are separated by goal difference and not alphabetically as appears to be the case?

2-are you able to provide templates for 14,16,18 and 20 teams?

3-are you able to provide a points deduction facility?

4-are you able to program the fixtures in order that for example 1 is at first home to 2 then away to 3 in it’s next game then home to 4 etc?

I have noticed that some teams are playing 3 consecutive away games especially in the 12 team template?

Certain amendments would only improve what is a superb template. If additions or amendments cannot be made then so be it.

LIKE picture above for lions and kings

Like in picture above. The place of Lions and Kings must be changed as Kings GD is more than Lions

Hi,

please how to copy line in 12 team file so that continue next (we will play more rounds). Link to the name starts with line 50.

Thank you,

want a draw 4 teams 3 grades 18 rounds suggestions

How do I get more fixtures/rounds in the schedule section ???

I want to have roughly 10-12 rounds, any help Please ???

Works perfect, but the same as above, I need it for more teams!! Could it go up to 10 teams per group? Would appreciate it!! Thanks

Hi, I have added templates for 10 and 12 teams. I hope it will help you.

This template is perfect for an upcoming tournament bu need it for 7 teams – any help really

Appreciated

Thanks

Hi, I have just added the templates for 7, 8, 10 and 12 teams. I just want to point out that the final table is sorted only by points not goal difference. If you find any error please leave a comment here. Thanks and enjoy it.

Jan, the templates of sport tournamnet are great. Thanks

But there is big mistake in that. As you may know positive goal difference is in a higher rank than negative one. In your template while a GD is 4 and the other is 50 then the latter should be in higher rank not lower in case the points are equal. I have translated your template it is great but need this problem be solved. Thanks again

pls i need the template for the top goal scorer and i want it to auto update whenever i input a data.

Hi , This template is great however how do i adjust it for 7 or 8 teams please?
