Circular Brackets

I know the Women's World Cup is only 24 teams vice the Men's World Cup is 32 teams which would affect your layout for the World Cup bracket. Sorry for making your job harder mate. 

 

You're right, that does make it a bit trickier, but I think it's doable. I'll see if I have some spare time to work it out over the next couple of days here.

24 teams is tough, but I think it is definitely doable. I think the tricky part would be what to do with the third-placed teams that qualify for the knockout stage.

The four best third placed teams get berths into the Round of 16 with Group winners and runner-ups. It would be easy to put them into the circular bracket based on the table below.

A B C D     3C 3D 3A 3B

A B   D E   3D 3A 3B 3E
A B   D   F 3D 3A 3B 3F

I love these circular brackets. I am going to try and make some myself, maybe historic tournaments. As for the World Cup and Women's World Cup, I believe it would look better with flags rather than association crests, if only because flags are more recognizable and for the most part less cluttered than the crests.

First crack at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, group stage complete:

Planning to simply do the color blocks based on a team's most recognizable kit, because trying to find national federation badges/crests for some of the teams is giving me a headache.

I guess I was kind of overthinking it, all you would need to do is put 24 on the outside and 16 on the inside. Well done!

That looks good, like the simplicity of it. I was wondering how you designed the circular bracket from scratch. I have been trying to design one from scratch for the Women's World Cup but I can't figure out how to start. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
