    Hey, everyone!

    It's about time we host another tournament, but not just any tournament. This tournament is part 2 of our original Battle of The Bridges, except during winter. This tournament is completely different than our first one, which is why it'll be bigger and better! :mcl:

    About the Tournament
    The BoTB: Winter Haven Tournament will consist of 64 teams. Lasting from November-Late December (right before New Years). We will have Tournament Management & Coordinators to help with the tournament operations and we will have Tournament Referees to help with game and match management.

    Tournament Structure
    This tournament is going to be Single Stage - Single Elimination, meaning that contestants will start on the bracket rather than Group Stages (like the previous BoTB Tournament - click here for an example).

    Round 1 will be best of 1 and played in the first 1st weekend when the tournament starts. We will have 8 Referees rotating 4 times:
    1-8 at 9:30am - 10:30am
    9-16 at 11am-12pm
    17-24 at 12:30pm-1:30pm
    25-32 at 2pm-3pm​

    Round 2 will be best of 1 and played on the 2nd Weekend of the tournament. We will have 8 referees rotating 2 times:
    33-40 at 12:30pm-1:30pm
    41-48 at 2pm-3pm

    Round 3 will be best of 3 and played on the 3rd Weekend of the tournament. We will have 8 referees set for the 8 games:
    49-56 at 1pm-3pm

    Round 4 will be best of 3 and played on the 4th Weekend of the Tournament. We will have 2 referees per match:
    57-60 at 1pm-3pm

    Semifinals will be best of 5 and played on the 5th Weekend of the Tournament. We will have 2 Coordinators and 4 Referees per match.
    61-62 at 12pm-3pm

    Finals / 3rd Place Match will be best of 5 and played on the 6th (last) weekend of the Tournament. We will have all 4 coordinators on the 3rd Place match and all of the management (Coordinators/Management) on the Final.
    3rd Place Match at 12:00pm-3pm
    Final at 3:30pm-6:30pm
