    Need a way for 48 participants to compete head-to-head.

    I'm trying to figure out a way for 48 people to compete in four divisions within the same league so the division winners can face off in the playoffs. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

    • Hi Jeff, I may have a solution to your problem. Take a look at the bowling league schedule site which allow you to pair up teams h2h to 48 teams. But if you have 4 divis1ons of 12 teams then if every one plays each other H2H that's 11 weeks then have three additional rounds the preseason numbered players (not week 12 ranking) #1 plays #1 from each other division. #2 plays #2 ect for all 12 teams. That leaves weeks 15 - 16 - 17 for play offs

    • Awesome!
      I'm running a 20 team league with two divisions and two drafts. i assume you are having 4 drafts.
      I'm having 9 weeks of round robin and 4 weeks of interleague play. I've been searching for a platform that supports this , but i isn't out there. I've set up 2 leagues and only using them to keep track of points. I set up a google docs with an excel sheet of the matchups. If you google round robin tournament calculator. you'll find a web site that will make an excel sheet for you with the match-ups. I am also having everyone have a comanager(you'll need 3) who can access the league' but not change line-ups so they can see the scoring inleagues that they are not officially in. i'll be checking back to see if you have any questions or suggestions.
      I'm hoping we are the begining of something that will be more common soon so that yahoo and others will make it easier. make sure you eamil their support to tell them what you are doing.
      How many playoff teams ae you going to have?
