Website Promotion – All sanctioned events must have a website to promote from, no exceptions. All we ask is on your homepage you include your Sanctioned Event seal with a link back to our website, along with on each event information or registration page which will add legitimacy to your event and provide information on what that means to your players. Leagues with facebook pages only may be considered so contact us to apply!

Keep Accurate Records – As part of our ranking system, we require each event to submit the following information for each participating team within one week of the league or tournament end date: Team Name, City/State for each team, captain name, captain phone, captain email, Final Standings per division. Without that information, rankings cannot be calculated properly and will not be included.

That’s it!
