The Staircase method: In this method, teams have matches just similar to a staircase, e.g., of 6 teams participating.
Number of matches = (n) (n – 1)/2 = 6(6 – 1)/2 = 3(5) = 15

1 – 2
1 – 3    2 – 3
1 – 4    2 – 4    3 – 4
1 – 5    2 – 5    3 – 5    4 – 5
1 – 6    2 – 6    3 – 6    4 – 6    5 – 6

Drawbacks of the method:

  • It does not indicate the number of rounds to be played.
  • It is not so easy to fixture concerned round as in case of cyclic and tabular method.
