Challonge Premier just got better

Today we're taking a step toward retiring bracket module credits. Effective immediately, as a Premier subscriber, you can embed your brackets on other websites without advertisements.

Q: What is Challonge Premier and how much does it cost?
A: Premier removes advertisements from your experience on, allows you to embed your brackets without ads or usage limits, and supports us so we can continue to improve our service. It is available for $5.99/month, or $29.99/year. Find more info and subscribe at

Q: How do I embed a Challonge bracket?
A: Instructions are at

Q: What happens if I already have module credits?
A: Your credits will continue to be usable, but we'll only deduct from your balance if you are no longer a Premier subscriber. If you want to cash in your credit balance and have a Premier subscription, let us know and we'll gladly do so via PayPal.

Q: Can I purchase additional module credits?
A: No. Once your credit balance reaches 0, you'll need a Challonge Premier subscription to embed your brackets without advertisements.

Thanks for your support!
