Any idea how to make a tournament bracket?

I'm trying to make a big tournament bracket with about 45 people in it. What program could I use to make this?

The best free bracket maker I've found is TIO. Sadly it's Windows only. If anyone finds a decent Mac bracket program, I'd be interested as well.

you may need excel 2003 or above to do it, but you put each name person in each cell then bold the line under the each name then move to the B cells and light all where the two names meet, and repeat until you get one line at the end, it is a lot of work about good half hour, but it is free and you can save as a template

challonge.com is a free resource for creating custom brackets and managing tournaments. the bracket printing support isn't spectacular, but you can publish brackets online

Go to Tournament-Bracket-Maker.com

Hey,

The best site I have found is tournament-bracket-maker.com. I use it to print out brackets and build brackets for our bowling tournaments. It really could work for any tournament.

They also have a link if you want to have your tournament online. They will host your tournament online. It is free if you have sponsors!

Best,

Dan

tournament-bracket-maker.com is more Mac friendly. Works well with iPhone too. Way more simple than other stuff out there. I probably go there twice a month for church tournaments!
