Tournament Schedule: Pool Structure

For 2020 we will be changing up the previous tournament structure by introducing a pooling system. With so many teams competing creating a balanced and fair schedule is paramount, and we felt like dividing teams into pools would help to accomplish this.

Pools will be created with equity at the forefront, dividing teams based on historical strength, qualifying rank and geographic location. Teams will get to face off against a diverse spread of teams from all over the country, limiting games against familiar opponents with as little strength-of-schedule bias as possible.

Additionally, we want to make sure that the process is as transparent as possible, so we have developed a comprehensive set of rules and already mocked up exactly how teams will be divided before most qualifying tournaments have even run!
