-------------------------------------------
It would be great to have you at our tournament Hairfu. I was planning on seperate leagues and cups for both versions. So there’d be 4 titles up for grabs. This depends on how many entrants. If there’s a good turnout then there might not be time to play leagues, in which case we’d go with something along the lines of what you’ve suggested in the above links. In any case I’d like the cups to have a league system as the first round like in the actual World Cup. Whatever format we go with we’ll make sure everyone gets plenty of competitive games throughout the whole day. I’ll confirm a definite format as soon as possible.

@Garthy: which versions will be played? (and what are the titles for?)

looks interesting. perhaps I can not play the world cup next year but then I should participate here...

After having a chat with Hairfu, I’ve decided the main tournament will be SWOS 96/97 probably in a similar format to the below link.

http://stremlau.eu/hairfu/swos_connected/4players.html

A quick question for you guys with experience of organising tournaments, will this format fit into a 1 day event? I was thinking of kicking off at about 11:00am.

An alternative to this is the method the Kick Off guys use. They start off with a league or leagues and then they’re seeded into seperate cups, a bronze, silver and gold cup. So the highest league finishers play in the gold cup, the next highest finishers in the silver and so on. This gives weaker players a chance to win something. Worth thinking about, I’m open to discussion. At the end of the day I’m happy to go with the method preferred by the majority.


There’ll also be a Sensible Soccer version 1.1 tournament, probably a Cup knockout.

As to the title we’ll be playing for, I suppose We’ll have to come up with a name for it. Open to suggestions.

Sure, with a handful of players you will easily finish on a day! :)
Just go with a group stage, then proceed with KO rounds in a simple manner (example 1st of group A vs. 4th of group B and so forth). All good!

There’ll also be a Sensible Soccer version 1.1 tournament, probably a Cup knockout.

Perfect idea! Same we're doing on the World Cups! Side event, only KO rounds... dramaaa baby!  8)

For those about to SWOS - We salute you

I will go with the tournament format of my link (stremlau.eu...) as it is the format that is used by most offline tournaments from here and it has proved that it works very well. You also can check out my official webpage of SWOS Hanse Cup 2008. Instead of supergroups we used a lower bracket that end as games for 3rd place. http://stremlau.eu/hairfu/swos-hanse08/


Booth formats (with supergroup and lower bracket) will need 6 to 8 hours. So if you start at 11:00 in the morning it is plenty of time and no need to worry about not  end at 18:00 or 19:00. 
With "just" Groupstage and then K.O. Stage it is probably even more faster if needed (instead of more games for all).
