    I'd call them results tables.

    Re: Tournament table name in English

    I've never seen such a thing.

    If those are supposed to be the scores of the matches played, I'm not sure I quite understand it. For example, Ireland cross references with Russia at "2-3," but Russia references to Ireland at "0-0." Does this mean everyone played everyone else twice?

    In any event, I don't know what to call it, cause I've never seen it before. There's a certain elegance to it, but it could become unwieldy with a larger amount of teams.

    In American sports we usually play long regular seasons and then the best teams qualify for playoff tournaments and these are single elimination.

    That's right—they played each other at home and away in a European football tournament.

    The first match result was Ireland 2, Russia 3 and the second Russia 0, Ireland 0.

    When the tournament is in progress, the table may be half empty, well, half full. Is it still "results table"? How about newly attached (quite different) table? Is it "result table" either? The fact of the matter is that I was unable to "Google" a search to find tables I mentioned in my original message, for EURO 2012. I did not want tables like the one attached to this reply.

    Those are called "standings," that give the team's record in wins and losses.

    The tables used to be ubiquitous for all round-robin tournaments with under about 2 dozen participants in Euorope.

    How about newly attached (quite different) table? This is a league table. The top two teams would have qualified for the next stage of the competition.
