    One of the four competitions in a knockout tournament whose winners go on to play in the two semifinals.


  1. quarterfinal

    A single-elimination, knockout, or sudden death tournament is a type of elimination tournament where the loser of each match-up is immediately eliminated from the tournament. Each winner will play another in the next round, until the final match-up, whose winner becomes the tournament champion. Each match-up may be a single match or several, for example two-legged ties in European sports or best-of series in American pro sports. Defeated competitors may play no further part after losing, or may participate in "consolation" or "classification" matches against other losers to determine the lower final rankings; for example, a third place playoff between losing semi-finalists. In a shootout poker tournament, there are more than two players competing at each table, and sometimes more than one progressing to the next round. Some competitions are held with a pure single-elimination tournament system. Others have many phases, with the last being a single-elimination final stage, often called playoffs.


  1. quarterfinal

    A quarterfinal is a round in a competition usually prior to the semifinals, typically involving eight participants or teams, with the winners proceeding to the next round. It comes after the elimination rounds and represents the top eight contenders in the competition.
