Players will play group games based on the total number of registrants. The top two players at the end of the group stage will advance to home and away matches beginning with the round of 64 until all players have been eliminated to find our champion.
A game schedule will be produced. Players will play a set number of games each game night (roughly 1 hour - 1.5 hours per night) during the group stage. Once the group stages are complete, the elimination rounds will begin. Players that advance to the elimination rounds will receive invites for that portion of the tournament.
Players must fill in all info to be eligible for prizes.
Our ideal scenario is that players will play 9 games in the group stage and the top 2 teams in each group will advance to the knockout stage.
We are planning on playing group games on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights from 7:15pm until roughly 8:30pm.
