Joomleague Project type are:

  • Simple_League (no bracket)
  • Divisions_League (bracket(s) possible in each divisions)
  • Simple_KO (1 tree bracket in project - and nothing more)[probably will be removed soon - DON'T USE IT]
  • Tournament_Mode (dedicated for brackets)

Available tournament mode


  • You create bracket schema.
  • Insert teams into leaf-nodes.
  • Then create matches. (Or You've got matches, then only assign them to nodes)
  • Insert matches results.(Or click SAVE button)
  • Winner team moved to next node, so You could create new match between winner teams.
  • Till the final stage…


You want only bracket look, don't care about matches.

  • Simply insert teams into all bracket's nodes.


At the beginining of tournament JL mass add all matches depends on bracket schema and best of.

And best thing;
You could have as many tree brackets inside every tournament project as you want.


Here U find good webside about printable brackets:
Joombracketing answers the questions:
How could I transfer my personal bracket from paper to joomleague?
Why this is so complicated? Could not to be simpler?

Upgrade from 0.93b

The tree bracket was NOT implemented in < 0.93 version, so upgrade is easy.
I assume you had matchdays and matches in (0.93)project.
After upgrade they are still in (1.5)project.
Now you should only:

  1. Set this project as “Tournament_Mode”;
  2. Choose proper tree bracket (and “best of” if necessary)
  3. GENERATE tournament;
  4. Assign teams to treenode;
  5. Assign matches to treenode

Never use “KNOWN” option, cause this type of project will generate new matchdays and matches.
Questions? Ask on forum please.

SIMPLE_KO will be removed, so all that projects need manual upgrade.
