WFTDA 2013 Playoffs and Championships

Tournament Bracket Bonanza Official Rules and Regulations

The 2012 WFTDA Playoffs Bracket Bonanza Game is a competition ("the Sweepstakes") based on results of the 2012 WFTDA Playoffs regional playoff and championship tournament events ("the Tournaments"), taking place from September through November 2012.

Participants in the Sweepstakes will attempt to select the winners of each of the WFTDA Playoffs tournaments. Participants will earn points by correctly predicting the winning teams in each bout of the Tournaments; the exact number of points awarded in this Sweepstakes is set forth in the Making Picks section below. The grand prize (the "Grand Prize") will be awarded to the Participant with the highest score, or, in the event of a tie, a Participant randomly-selected from the pool of tied highest-scoring Participants.

The Sweepstakes will begin on Friday, September 14, 2012 and will run through the final game of the Tournament scheduled for November 4, 2012 ("Sweepstakes Period").

No Cost

The Sweepstakes is FREE to play. No purchase or entry fee necessary to enter or win.
