NFALD Grand Prix ONLINE

2020 — Online, US

This will be an ONLINE tournament (using Zoom), and no entry fees will be charged.

Schools are expected to provide a full time judge for every two entries, but if schools need to hire judges through the tournament, please contact us. We will charge enough for judging to assure we have sufficient judging both days.

Updated Schedule (CST) 

Zoom room link information will be shared with everyone in a later update. The schedule update is intended to minimize somewhat the pain for our PST friends without keeping our EST friends up too late.

Although divisions will collapse, we will have people hit others eligible for the same break out where possible in pre-sets and may take this into consideration in power matching. 

We plan to clear all entries with a 4-2 record, and then sort out break-out elims from the remainder before determining which 3-3's should clear to create a balanced double elim bracket in open. There will be only one final round (a team reaching finals without a loss would finish 2nd if they lost). We expect one breakout elim at most in JV/Nov, and an even number in open partials (12 most likely, but we will finalize this after prelims).
