Using an 18 Team Double Elimination Bracket
An 18 team double elimination bracket is similar to a 16 team double elimination bracket, except four teams must play for the final two spots. The losers still get a chance to redeem themselves in the losers bracket, however, so they won’t be out of the tournament yet.
Great for every sport, the double elimination bracket is easy to follow along until a team wins it all. Once in the losers bracket, a team can’t lose again. Last team in the winners bracket plays the final team in the losers bracket, but is still double elimination eligible.
