DETAILS & FAQ’s

Divisions Offered

Below are the different divisions we offer for many of our styles along with who is expected to participate in each. You may only play in ONE of the PRO/Comp/Rec divisions, but may also play in an O35 division.

PRO

The top division with teams who are used to competing at the National and International level, featuring top cash prizes and the best athletes in the world. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

COMPETITIVE

This division is for teams who may be top teams in their area and very experienced with top athletes, but no National experience or missing some key contributors to make a PRO run. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

RECREATIONAL

This division is for teams who are possibly experienced and still competitive, but newer as a team or lacking the top athletes to push the top divisions. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

O35

Our division for players 35 years of age or older. Age cutoff is the first date of tournament play, so if you are not 35 by that day you are not eligible to play in this division. All players MUST have a valid ID on them throughout the event to verify age in the event of a protest.

Hotels & Flights

HOTELS: We have already secured the hotels with the lowest possible rates where you can reserve your team block or book individually. Check out Hotels here! 

AIRPORTS: The closest and largest airport we recommend booking through is DFW, which is about 20 minutes from the facility. You may also book through Love Field, especially if you’re flying Southwest, which is about 35 minutes from the field.

Division Caps

Some divisions may have caps depending on the amount of teams registered and field space availability.

Draft Party

To help avoid large crowds, we will set up a virtual draft via Zoom or conference call.
Date/Time – TBD

Draft Seeding

Pool Play Seeding is based on when you select your first game on media night during the draft. All teams with 5 or more teams in their division will battle to select their placement on the schedule, where you’ll have a say in who you play, what time and on what field. Captains will select which seed they want on the schedule in reverse order of their Ranking Points, and you can take any spot on the board, bumping out another team if desired, who would be forced to take an open spot.

HOW IT WORKS

Team A has the least Battle Points and selects first, and is on the clock (1 minute to decide) . They select the 5th seed on the schedule so they can start at a later time. Team B is up next, and selects the 1st seed to avoid being in the same pool as Team A. Team C is up next, and decides they want to bump Team A out of their spot and steals the 5th seed. Team A then is forced to take an open spot on the board, and selects the 2nd seed place themselves in the same pool as Team B who they think they matchup well against. This continues all the way through the draft until the last 3 teams are left. The only rule exception is that if any of the top 3 teams get bumped out of their spot, they are allowed to bump again. So if Team Z has the most points and is the last to draft and bumps Team X out of their spot who was the 2nd or 3rd highest points, Team X would be allowed to bump another team out so they’re not stuck with the only open spot on the board having earned a top 3 draft position. The team they bump would have to take the last open spot on the board, and the draft would be complete! It is a fun way to select your pool play positions and gives each team some input on when, where and who they play!

Pool Play

We do pool play here at the FFWCT, but with a twist to make sure pool play matters and every game counts. Click here for more information on how and why we use pool play for our major tournaments.

Schedule Blocks

Since we do pool play, we’re able to do schedule blocks so you’re guaranteed to be able to play in atleast 2 styles, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can still play in multiple styles that may overlap, but we cannot guarantee anything and will not be accommodating any schedule requests.

However, a player CANNOT play on multiple rosters in the same format (i.e. 5v5 Contact PRO and 5v5 Contact Competitive). You CAN play in multiple formats though (i.e. 5v5 Contact PRO and 4v4 Non-Contact PRO).

Guaranteed Games

Adult divisions / 3 game guarantee – 3 pool play games, plus single elimination bracket for top teams in each division
Youth divisions / 4 game guarantee – 3 pool play games, plus single elimination bracket where everyone makes the playoffs

Playoffs

The number of teams that make playoffs will be determined solely by the number of teams in each bracket. The breakdown is as follows:

3-4 teams = 2 Teams in Playoffs
5-8 teams = 4 Teams in playoffs
9-12 teams = 6 Teams in playoffs
13-16 teams = 8 Teams in playoffs
17-20 teams = 10 Teams in Playoffs
21-24 teams = 12 Teams in Playoffs
25-28 teams = 14 Teams in Playoffs
29+ teams = 16 Teams in Playoffs

After you finish all of your pool play games, playoffs brackets/seeds will be determined by factors IN THIS ORDER

  1. Overall Record (2 points for a win, 1 points for a tie, 0 points for a loss)
  2. Most Wins (In divisions with extra pool play games for some teams, a loss is a tiebreaker. i.e. 3-0 > 3-1 > 2-1 > 2-2, etc.)
  3. Point Differential
  4. Points Against
  5. Points Scored
  6. Rankling Points
  7. Registration Date
Prizes

Trophies, Cash Prizes, 4X Ranking Points, MVP Awards, Medals, Championship Rings, and Full Paid Bid to 2021 FFWCT Panama City Beach World Championships if 10 or more teams. If 9 teams or less will get a 1/2 Bid

Flags

ALL TEAMS will use Sonic Flag-a-Tag flags. Mushroom flags ARE allowed.
ALL TEAMS must provide their own flags, you can purchase them on-site as well but they will not be provided.

Rules
Paid Bids

If you earned a full or a 1/2 paid bid through winning any of the FFWCT Regional, State or World Championship events this year that you’ll be redeeming for Nationals, you’ll want to register your team in the “My Team Has a Paid Bid” division. This will allow you to pay the $50 deposit that is required no matter what so we know the team is coming, and will ask you for your division in which we will then move you to that division in short order and will lock you into your registration date for points. If you had a 1/2 bid, we will apply your credit and you will still have a small outstanding balance that will need to be paid before the deadline. For teams with a full bid, this is all you’ll have to do other than we strongly encourage you to book your hotels or housing through our registration so you get the best deals possible.

Roster Maximums
  • 4v4: 15
  • 5v5: 15
  • 7v7 AFFL-Style: 20
  • 7v7 Screen: 30
  • Youth 5v5: 12
Refund Policy

All payments are final as of June 19th, 2020 and no refunds will be allocated for teams not attending of their own accord but may request a credit towards any FFWCT operated tournament within a calendar year. If a division is cancelled, a full refund will be given regardless. Click here to read though our full terms and conditions.

Schedule Requests

Adult teams: We do not take schedule requests here at FFWCT. We have pre-made schedule blocks that you can find by scrolling down below, so you can see what time which formats play to avoid schedule conflicts. You can also impact your first games start time by selecting a better spot during the draft during media night.
Youth teams: If coaches are entering teams in more than 1 age group, we will take schedule requests on a first-come-first-serve basis in order of registration. Requests are still not guaranteed and may only apply for pool play games. We may not be able to avoid conflicts for playoff brackets.
We highly suggest having more than 1 coach per team in the event of a time conflict.

SCHEDULE BLOCKS

The graphic below lays out which divisions will and will not overlap. The top 1/2 shows the morning block, and some divisions we are guaranteeing will not overlap even within the block.

2020 Arlington Flag Football national Championships Schedule Block

PLAY MULTIPLE STYLES

We guarantee scheduling to not conflict between the Morning and Afternoon Blocks.  You are guaranteed to be able to play in at least one format in each block, allowing you to play on multiple teams.

You may NOT play in more than one division of a single format. i.e. If you are on a roster for 4v4 PRO, you may not play in 4v4 Comp or Rec, but you could play in 5v5 Non-Contact Rec in a different format. You CAN however play in an age-restricted format, such as O35 along with one other open division of that style.
