Starting tournaments with different pairing systems

I would like to know how to start tournaments using different pairing systems. Also I think it would be neat if there was a round robin system for small private tournaments.

Let me vote for this feature. It would be good to have possibility to create small(for now we have 10-12 competitors) private round-robin tournament. It would be good for small group of people, for example in our firm we have chess tournament every year before new year and making touenament using lichess whould be a good option because games will be saved and we will not worry about unfair scheduling, chess clocks and so on.

I would love to have that! The pairing system we have now is not too bad, but maybe including elimination or something like that would be fun.

Sounds good. Choice of a pairing system could/should be one of the options.
