Fixture: A Fixture is a fixed schedule where day, date and time are mentioned for the participating teams or players. It is fixed on the basis of lots and it is important to see and check that previous years winner and runner-up teams are in different halves. It is decided beforehand whether the tournament will be knockout. league or combination and accordingly schedule is fixed. We call it as fixture of the tournament. 

Knockout-cum-league fixture of 23 teams. 

n = 23, 

n in upper half = 12, 

no. of Byes = 32 - 23 = 9 

n in lower half = 11, 

nb in upper half = 4 

nb in lower half = 5 

Till quarter finals, teams will play knockout matches after that teams which reached quarter will play league matches, to declare the true winner. 

Cyclic league fixture: The teams which reached quarter finals are : 1, 5, 7 , 12, 13, 16, 21, 23.

n = 8, Rounds = n - 1 = 7, Matches = 8(8-1)/2 = 28

Likewise as per the point system all the teams will get their ranking. 

Win - 2 points, Draw - 1 point, Loss - 0 point 

add the score of all the matches. The team with the maximum points will win.
