  1. Search for tournaments by location

    When searching for tournaments, allow location as a filter so users can discover tournaments to join. This would be an amazing feature because more users because it will increase visibility and enrollment in tournaments.

    For example, askFRED.net is the de-facto fencing tournament organization website in the entire United States. All enrollment information and events are managed/organized through the website (although they have no bracket software, third party software interfaces with their website). Any fencer, or parent of fencer, can search for tournaments by region, state, city, date, even on a map and sign up.

    I don't think this would be…

  2. Manage entry fees and display final payouts

    When adding tournament participants, I would like to be able to add if they paid the specified entry fee, specify the pot distribution among the tournament winners e.g. 70/20/10, and have the payouts automatically calculated and displayed on the final results screen. Could this feature be added?

  5. Please add the Dutch language

    Please add the Dutch language to the site. This is missing. 32 million people speak it worldwide.

  7. invisible grid

    I was wondering there is no way to hide the bracket till the tournaments starts. We are a big community and create tournaments every month. We would like to have an option to hide the grid till the event starts.

  8. Links to report scores for users without accounts

    It would be nice if users without accounts, that sign up using the sign-up page would get a link they could use to report their scores.

    Much like the link they currently get that allows for unregistering from a challonge, but it would allow to report scores as well.

  9. it will be GREAT when make able to use national flag to bracket.

    it will be GREAT when make able to use national flag to bracket.
    why you don't add this option.
    if user can add 'national flag' or 'icon'(such as players icon or team icon) to each player area on bracket, then challonge will be Legendary .
    i hope that as quick as fix this.

  10. Swiss available as first stage.

    Great job guys : ) I was just wondering if it was possible to have a Swiss available as first stage for a two stage tournaments.
    What I do after a few rounds is to divide the standing list into groups of four people, like positions 1,2,3,4 go to group 1 and they play for positions 1 to four. Positions 5,6,7,8 go to group 2 and play for final standing 5 to 8.
    This way tournaments are more compelling to the participants because they have a play off games in the end for final posistions, and swiss is a great…

  11. Allow api to get data from all tournaments

    The current api only allows for viewing and modifying tournaments created on accounts that you have an api key for. It would be useful if you could read data from other tournaments so programs could take advantage of the whole of challonge

  12. Paypal Payment Option

    Would be HUGE if you implemented other options for payment outside of stripe! If Paypal was an option we could easily grow our Challonge user base!

  13. Allow to add image next to name


    1. Allow admin to add a image next to the name

    example State or country flag.

    I understand you can do this if you register but lets be honest these people don't want to register they just want to play. Make it a premium feature or something but no one but the director should have to register.

  14. Add ability to claim results to your challonge account

    Similar to how it's done on some other sites (such as smashboards). Let a user sign in to their account and be able to claim some performance from a tournament as theirs and have it to show up under their "tournaments" tab.
    ie. I participate in a tournament in person with no online setup, it's bracket gets set up in challonge (without using email addresses), allow me to tag a participant as "me" after the fact so it shows up in my tournament history. (To prevent fraud you could require that the tournament organizer approves each request.)

  15. Match Comms to settle the match terms between teams (day, time and server)

    Hello, I am managing Americas Army Games for over 10 years, and we always required a Match Comms feature, were the teams are able to discuss via posts, the terms for their matches, like for exemple, the day, the time, the server, etc, etc. I would like to suggest that this feature be added in the Challonge Tournaments Match Details, like the attachements, the time and location and the report score. This way, Challonge avoid the need of a paralel forum for that. ESL, TWL and other Gaming Communities use this features aswell.

  16. Add the option to start an additional bracket if waitlist is big enough.

    If I have a 16 person tournament I'm hosting online, and have 32 people in it, I should be able to start a second bracket.

    Or if I have a 32 person bracket with 48 people registered, I should be able to transfer those on the waitlist into a 16 person tournament without them all having to register again.

  17. enable custom bye brackets

    Automatic bye generation doesn't let me chose where my byes enter the bracket on a single elimination contest. I am unable to move the structure of the bracket to reflect the byes and there is no consistency.

    For example I may have a preliminary round that has 2 players and the other 7 players are already in the 1st round. So the 7 players get preliminary round byes.

    However if I want the winner of the preliminary round match to play a specific player in the next round I am unable to as Challonge decides where that goes

    A workaround…

  18. Allow players to be added on round robin brackets without resetting the whole thing.

    Isn't it kinda silly when the point of having a round robin is to have everyone fight everyone else? I find it quite annoying that I have to wait til all of my players enter when I could have already started with the same results. I love your site, I really do but in this case what is the point when you can do the same thing easier on paper?

  19. Teams (Rosters)

    I would love to see a Team ROSTER listing the individual players with in a team. This way we could track players stats (W/L) with each match and know who was in each match/game.

  20. Allow additional participants to in-progress round robins

    Round robin style conditions don't rely on past matches to set up future ones. Why not then allow participants to be added with scores intact? This would benefit long running round robins in particular.
