    Well, I think you need a preposition after 'congratulations'.
    What do you think it might be?

    Re: A XXX tournament was held in XXX.

    Oh, it is definitely 'on', but where should I place 'XXX'?

    Assuming XXX is someone, you can find the preposition used before 'someone' on http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/de...congratulation

    Re: A XXX tournament was held in XXX.

    I'm confused.

    Should it be "Congratulations to XXX on winning the tournament"?

    Re: A XXX tournament was held in XXX.

    It may be simpler to say 'Congratulations on XXX's winning the tournament'.

    I think you've found a suitable preposition for it.

    I'm afraid that I've found two more mistakes:

    1. 'XXX knocked out' is not correct. It's not in the right 'voice'.
    2. I don't like your 'And so on.' very much - I've never seen it used like that before.

    I think I'll leave the rest for native speakers.
