Go to *General *> *Group ranking* to customize the scoring settings. You'll be able to work with points or sets.

## Points

By default, tournaments are set to work with points. This is the common score type for many sports, like football. The result of a match is always a single score or single set, like 1-0 or 1-1. You can set the amount of points that will be awarded for a win, draw and loss in group matches.

### Advanced settings

### Advanced settings

You can enable the advanced settings for more customization. The following extra options are then available:

**Points for a big win**

Award a different number of points for a win with 2, 3, 4 or 5 goals more.

**Points for a win or loss after extra time, on penalties or on golden goal**

Award a different number of points in case a group matches ends in draw and will be decided by extra time, on penalties or on golden goal. This will only apply if you enable the setting*Don't allow a draw as the end result in a group match.*

**Points for a draw with or without goals**

Award a different number of points for matches ending in a draw in which have and which haven't been scored at all.

**Don't allow a draw as the end result in a group match**

If enabled, you have to mark the winner when the match ends in a draw, even for group matches.

**Use goals as points**

Award one point for every goal scored in a match. This will disable all other options.

**Enter scores of the penalty shootout for matches ended in a draw**

Instead of marking the winner, enter the full result of the penalty shoot-out. You can then choose whether or not to count the goals from penalties for the goal difference statistic.

### Group ranking / tiebreakers for tournaments with points

You can configure how teams should be ranked in the groups and which tiebreakers should apply if two or more teams have an equal number of points. You can add or delete criteria and drag them in the preferred order. The following criteria are available:

**Number of points**

The number of points awarded based on whether the match ended in a win, draw or loss.

**Goal difference**

The number of goals scored minus the number of goals conceded.

**Number of goals scored**

**Head to head**

A direct comparison between the teams that are equal, using the selected criteria. The results against other teams in the group are no longer relevant.

**Number of matches won**

**Average number of points per match**

The number of points divided by the number of matches played.

**Lowest number of goals conceded**

**Number of matches without goals conceded (clean sheet/shutout)**

**[Your own criteria]**

You can go to*General*>*Group Ranking > Keep track of more points*to create your own team statistics, like fair play. These statistics can then be used as tiebreaker criteria.

**Sets**

Sets are the common score type for sports like tennis or volleybal. The result of a match consists of a minimum of two sets, like 6-3; 6-1. If you set the number of sets to an **even** number (like 2), you can optionally enable a *Deciding set*. If you set the number of sets to an **uneven** number (like 5), you can optionally enable the *Playoff/Best of *mode.

You can award points in group matches based on the final result of all sets or per set individually. Sets can only end in a draw when you award points per set.

## Multiple scoring types

Click on *Add scoring* to create a new scoring type. You can set the preferred type of scoring per phase, group, bracket or individual match on the *Format* page. This can be done by clicking on the edit pencil next to the name of the phase or element.

Having multiple scoring types can be useful for events in which you play a 'best of three' during group stage and 'best of five' during knockout stage, to name an example.
