EVENT LOCATION

The 2020 Orlando World Championships draft party and media night location is the Sea World Bayside Stadium pavilions located at 7007 Sea World Drive, Orlando, Florida 32821. Let the ticket gate know you are there for the FFWCT draft or media night. After you proceed through the gate take the VERY FIRST RIGHT. Please lineup in an orderly fashion and the SeaWorld staff will begin letting people in at 6pm EST.

The location is MUCH larger than last years house of blues which was essentially standing room only and with nearly 100 more teams than last year competing in this event, this location made the most sense for the event.

CAPTAIN’S CHECK-IN

All players and family are welcome and encouraged to attend the draft party! However, only 2 captains per team will be allowed in the drafting area. There will be check-in lines to get wristbands that will give you access to those areas. Players should not stand in these lines. Captains need to fill out the online survey, sent by email and text, before they can check-in to get their wristband.

ALL TEAMS will use Sonic Flag-a-Tag flags for all 4v4, 5v5, 8v8 Screen and 9v9 divisions (mushroom flags and Shruumz ARE allowed in 4/5/7/8man screen styles). Triple Threat flags will be used in all 8v8 Contact formats. 7v7 men’s and women’s formats may choose to wear either sonic or triple threat variety flags, but the entire team must choose the same type and cannot change once the game starts.

ALL TEAMS must provide their own flags, you can purchase them on-site as well but they will not be provided and supplies may be limited so come prepared!

POOL PLAY & DOUBLE ELIMINATION

8v8 Contact Men’s PRO, Competitive and O35 will be double elimination
We do pool play for all other styles, but with a twist to make sure pool play matters and every game counts. Pool play games will be Friday & Saturday, with Sunday being playoffs.

POOL PLAY SEEDING

The number of teams that make playoffs will be determined solely by the number of teams in each pool. NOTE that this is a slight change from previous events, where we would take the top teams across all divisions, and now it is based on your pool performance specifically. The breakdown is as follows:

3-4 teams in pool = 2 Top Teams from that pool make Playoffs
5-6 teams in pool = 3 Top Teams from that pool make Playoffs
7-8 teams in pool = 4 Top Teams from that pool make Playoffs
9-10 teams in pool = 5 Top Teams from that pool make 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
  3. Head to Head (ONLY applies if EVERY team with the same record all played the same schedule and opponents)
  4. Point Differential
  5. Points Against
  6. Points Scored
  7. Battle Points
  8. Registration Date
