Hi what's the best way to have 94 teams compete in a cup competition with the number of rounds and such. The calculations are hurting my head now! How can I do it? (I can add or take away 2-4 teams if that helps).

final ====== 2 teams
semi's ===== 4 teams
quarters === 8 teams
round 4 === 16 teams
round 3 === 32 teams
round 2 === 64 teams
round 1 === 128 teams

from this you can tell how many rounds you would need.

if you do 94-64 you get 30 which is the number of matches you would need in the first round.

64-30 is 34 the number of teams to enter round 2
30*2 is 60 the number of teams to enter round 1
which added together makes 94 the total number of teams

this is the way i would do it unless you wanted to make it a seeded competition like the fa cup where teams come in later which would take more working out.
