Additional donations after the bracket is full will be placed on a waiting list in case there are no-shows. ALL proceeds are going to St. Baldrick's Foundation.
There will be 3 consoles going simultaneously.
Tourney Rules: Each game will have 5 min halves, allow three 30-second pauses each player for subs and *only* when ball is out of bounds. Ties will go to shootout after regulation. Difficulty will be set to Legendary which only affects AI (and helps one person not run away with the game). 2 min max for setup (setting lineups). No interfering with other player (blocking their view, bumping into them, etc.). We will have one of the organizers watching every match at each of the 3 consoles making sure the games move along at a good pace and that there's no funny stuff.
Players can pick any professional club they like in each match (no national teams or legends-type teams) and duplicates will be allowed until semifinals; from there on we'll do a coin toss to determine who picks first. Once we hit quarterfinals, we'll do 6 min halves.
Did you know that 300,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year? And in the U.S., one in five will not survive. We want to change that, so we're raising money to find cures.
Please support us with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.
So when we ask for your support, we're really asking you to support these kids.
