What is this all about?

This is a tournament hosting platform.

Unlike third-party sites, our goal is to exclusively support Team Fortress 2 and unite all the tournaments or LANs that do not have a website like leagues do. There is no longer need in hosting your own website just to run 1 tournament.

Why is this better than any other service?

Per every tournament created, you will get a full support, a customizable tournament page to keep your rules, info and scheduling and an easy medal distribution for a big amount of teams participating.
But the best part of it is the community. With all the tournaments kept in one place, we will have teams that can be shared across the tournaments, as well as public player profiles to track the progress of participating in various competitions.

Features include but not limited to:

  • A customizable tournament page per every tournament
  • A system to communicate and notify participants and team leaders
  • Powerful match system: match comms, map-specific result submissions. Match scheduling based on team availability. Pick/ban system.
  • Weekly / manual brackets, playoff brackets system. Tiebreaking.
  • Participation per approval for closed tournaments.
  • Roster locks, transfers and all the other stuff you are so used to have on TF2 league websites all around the world.

Right now, we only need you - the people. Help us to grow by hosting your next tournament using match.tf and sharing your feedback!
