I seem to recall being told that there is a limitation on scheduled Round Robin tournaments with a large # of teams and/or with fewer than N-1 rounds that results in the need to use a Swiss format.

The problem with Swiss is that it each season it consistently pairs the same teams (due to coaching skill) very early in the schedule which makes for very little suspense on who will "win the season" (it's usually decided by round 4 or 5 Sad ).

I can't recall what the exact issue with Sched. RR, perhaps someone can explain why it doesn't work for this scenario.

~TLDR Version~
I'd like to simply randomly schedule 11 rounds for 24 teams without using Swiss. Can I?

Uh, yes you can.

You split the 24 teams into 2 pools.

Each pool plays a round robin with 11 games.

The top 2 of each pool play off in a finals knockout.

Done.

Thanks, but that's not really what I was asking for...

I'd like 11 rounds for 24 teams, not 11 rounds for 12 teams, twice (The two aren't the same).

Why must it be split into "2 pools"?
