The MSTW Bracket Builder plugin creates, manages, and displays multiple tournaments. Shortcodes are available to display brackets (knockout rounds), and tables of games (fixtures). The front end displays can be formatted via shortcode arguments, and the plugin’s stylesheet.


Build tournament brackets (knockout rounds) and tournament schedules (fixture tables) quickly and easily. Make your site pop by adding team logos, name and location formats, and links to maps, team sites, and venue sites. Automatically schedule by seed, or schedule manually. The automated admin process advances teams to future rounds based on the results of previous rounds. What are the differences between Bracket Builder Free & Premium Versions?

NOTE 1: You MUST deactivate and delete the free version of the plugin before installing the premium version.

NOTE 2: Tournaments built in the free version will not be available in the premium version. You must recreate any existing tournaments. [This will be addressed in a future release.]

NOTE 3: The plugin is designed for tournaments with TEAMS participating. While it will work for tournaments with individual players, e.g., tennis tournaments, it is not intended for that purpose. [This will be addressed in a future release.]
