Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to figure out how to make this format work and I think it's just something my brain can't put together the right way.

Here is the scenario:

9 Teams, 3 Teams per Round (a Threesome, essentially), 6 Rounds.

Here is the catch, the Teams in a given round are assigned to be Team 1, Team 2, Team 3 and I need every team to be Team 1 twice, Team 2 twice, and Team 3 twice (think everyone playing offense twice, defense twice, and (insert third option) twice).

I need to set it up where no one plays anyone 3 times in those 6 rounds AND where they do not play the same Team as the same Team position (e.g. Team A cannot play Team B as the same Team1/Team2 matchup) twice.

This is what I have now but it has 2 3x matchups which I am trying to avoid while keeping the 2x Team 1, 2x Team 2, 2x Team 3 requirement and the not seeing same Team Letter as same Team 1/2/3 side. The below table is by round (6 rounds) and ordered left to right Team 1, 2, 3.

E - A A B C C D F G H H I I

F - A A B C C D E G G G H I - 3G

G - A A B C C D E F F F H I - 3F

H - A B B C C D D E E F G I

I - A A B B C D D E F F G H

Any help would be wonderful in adjusting this setup.
