I need a schedule for 8 teams, 6 of them play at the same day, 1 team is on duty, and 1 team is free.
So, 3 matches each day, 2 byes. If e.g. team 1 and 2 are bye, they will have to meet another day.
Thanks in advance! Wim

There will need to be 10 rounds to play all the matches, so two teams will have duty twice.  I think the schedule below will work and it should be fairly easy to assign the duty teams once you have written down the byes in each round.
