Do you cede or seed control?

Cede means “to yield or grant typically by treaty.” Most of the verb senses of seed are concerned with planting seeds (either literal, as of plants, or figuratively, as of ideas). However, the word may also be used to mean “to schedule (tournament players or teams) so that superior ones will not meet in early rounds.” If you relinquish or yield something you are ceding it, and if you are organizing the participants in a tournament you are seeding them.
