Creating a Tournament

An Orion Tournament is simply an online grouping of Matches. Typically a tournament is a set of matches that have something in common. For example, each month Orion creates a tournament comprising of the five Monthly Virtual Matches. Participants can then go to the Tournament Page within the Result Center and view all five Virtual Match results on a single page.

Any Orion for Clubs user may create a tournament. Any Orion for Clubs user, with permission from the creator, may add a match to a tournament.
