- COMPETITION STRUCTURE
All 24 players from the 6 organizations registered for the Open series will be pooled in four conferences. Each conference will have 6 slots (each registered organizations will have a representative in each of the four conferences).
A round robin format will be played in each conference where the top two will qualify for quarter-finals whereas;
- 3rd place position in each conference will qualify for (9th -12th) playoffs
- 4th place position in each conference will qualify for (13th-16th) playoffs
- 5th place position in each conference will qualify for (17th-20th) playoffs
- 6th place position in each conference will qualify for (21st-24th) playoffs
Each playoff match will be played in a one legged format where winners will meet and so will the losers.
For example, in the 9th-12th playoffs, four participants will play and each winner will meet to decide who will finish 9th and 10th whereas the losers will play to determine who will finish 11th and 12th.
For the main series quarter finals, a one-legged match will be played (6 minutes of Half Length) and losers in this stage will directly qualify for the (5th-8th) playoffs matches.
The All-female series will see a direct round-robin format where all 6 participants will play amongst themselves and the top 2 will proceed for the final.
The finals for both the all-female series and the open series will be played in a two legged 6 minutes Half Length periods. The two legged will be on Home and Away basis.
- E-LIG SERIES POINTS ALLOCATION
The e-Lig series will use a reverse log point allocation system for the series points. In this system, the total number of participants represent the total number of points awarded that is;
The e-Lig open series has 24 participants therefore position one will get 24 points, position 2 = 23points, position 3 = 22points…etc
The same will be used for the all-female series having 6 participants.
