Optimizing the game schedule of a sports league is a very complex problem; known as the traveling tournament problem. In a real situation; the problem includes many intangible constraints that are hard to quantify. Also; the objective function is quite fuzzy. In this presentation; we will compare the ‚Äútheoretical‚ÄĚ traveling tournament problem with a real instance. Further; we will sketch how the problem is solved today; discuss potentials for optimization; and outline how we have helped a major sports league to optimize their planning.
