Before the competition allocations can begin, setting up data is entered, these include "Competitors" and "Round Headings".

"Competitors" can be entered in any order and the program can shuffle that order using a random number sequencer to simulate a "manual random draw".

"Round Headings" are entered according to how many rounds are required for the quantity of competitiors. The program will generate the correct quantity of headings if required.

KNOCK OUT MATRIX

The program stores a knock out matrix based on the appropriate knock out template. The program puts the competitors and the headings into the appropriate boxes to produce the output:-
