Construction of balanced sports schedules using partitions into subleagues

Direct constructions for balanced tournaments known so far solve problems with 2n teams if 2n mod 3 not equal 1 or 2n = 2(p), p >= 3 or n is odd. Our construction uses an arbitrary partition of the league into subleagues. It solves more than half of the missing cases and provides structured solutions for some known cases.
