Adding an infobox to your tournament page[edit]

An Infobox is one of the standard features of any Liquipedia page and it's no different for tournaments and leagues. The {{Infobox league}}-template should come before the article text start, but perhaps after other templates such as Tabs or Stub, and also after a banner that you'd like to add to the top. Following will be the explanation of the code, and some templates for you to use on a tournament page.

Code Explanation[edit]

{{Infobox league

This brings out the template you will be using.

|name=Hawnty's Epic Gaming Tournament
|series=Hawnty's Epic Gaming League

Tournament name, link to the banner (upload to LP), and name of organizer, the organizer automatically looks if there is an LP page with that name and if it finds one it will link to it. You can add up to 4 organizers like this: organizer2 - organizer4 And they'll do the search for each one. Or you can make it into an external link. Also to note: at the moment, Name and Organizer are the only fields that will be displayed even if they are left empty. Series refers to the tournament league/circuit this tournament falls under. Like organizer, it should automatically look for any LP page with that name and link it if it does.

|date= 2020-12-10
|sdate= 2020-12-10
|edate= 2020-12-17

Date of event or if it spans multiple days, you can instead add start and end date. Please try to use the ISO date standard (YYYY-MM-DD) with the normal "hyphen-minus" (-) as a seperator.

|web= http://www.pokemon.com/

official webpage for the tournament/league, add complete URLs for them to work properly no title for the links can be given.



Fill out the nick/ID of the top finishers. The template additionally supports adding country flags. For flags use the country name or its two-letter country code. It is also possible to set two third place finishers. For a second, shared third place finisher, use "idthird2". Team tournaments also use this but switch "idfirst" and such to "teamfirst" and so on.


Total number of players.


These are to be used for team tournaments team_number sets the number of teams playing in the league. team1 - team16 lists up to 16 possible teams, for a league with more teams than this just leave these fields blank and make a list on the page. For team tournaments it's not necessary to fill in player_number variables.


Links to the previous and next editions of the series/tournament.


Ends the use of the template, without this the template will not work.

Copy & Paste Templates[edit]

You'll find several templates and a full variables list below. Chose the one that suits your needs the best.

NOTE: After you've entered all the information you have, do not add: 0, N/A, TBD etc. to empty variable fields (except prizepool). Instead, it is oftentimes best to just remove the empty ones, unless you know this information will be coming in the future (like results for first through third place) but then you can just leave the fields blank.
