Tournament Format

The 16 teams will be divided into two (2) brackets, each bracket consisting of 8 teams.

Bracketing will be done by doing drawlots. Team captains will be asked to draw Bracket/Team Numbers

Bracket-A Bracket-B
Team A1 Team B1
Team A2 Team B2
Team A3 Team B3
Team A4 Team B4
Team A5 Team B5
Team A6 Team B6
Team A7 Team B7
Team A8 Team B8

“Buyback” Option explained:
The tournament will observe the Single Elimination Rule but will grant all teams the “Buyback” option. Once a team loses a single match, the T.O. will ask them if they want to BuyBack their chance of winning the tournament by paying the same amount of registration fee and do a rematch against the team who beat them. Opposing team will have no right to refuse the rematch. In case the team who used the BuyBack option wins the rematch, the same “Buyback” option will be granted to the Rematch’s Losing Team. Teams will be allowed to use the “Buyback” option only once per round of the tournament.

1st Round
Single Elimination(16 teams)

All teams will play 1 match during the 1st round and matchups will be paired as:
1vs8, 2vs7, 3vs6, and 4vs5 for both brackets.

A total of 8 Winning Teams from Bracket-A and Bracket-B will advance to the 2nd round of the tournament.

2nd Round – single elimination (8 teams)
A drawlot will be accomplished to assign new and random matchups for the 8 remaining teams.

From the 8 remaining teams, 4 Team Captains will randomly be selected to draw and randomly pick their 2nd round matchup.
