A good name for a tournament depends on the type of contest. Many tournaments typically contain the name of the game or event being contested. Furthermore, a good tournament name should feature keywords that inspire competition, such as championship, invitational, classic or series.

Many professional sports tournaments use names that inspire excitement and competition. With titles such as Super Bowl, World Series and Premier League Championship, it is clear from the names that these tournaments are the most competitive in their respective sports. Tournament organizers borrow from those naming conventions in order to create a winner-take-all atmosphere for their own competitions.
