Cannot make it to worlds but want to take on the best of the world, come play in the World Cup of Trek.

Players may submit to me a tournament they wish to consider as a qualifier. This can be any one-day tournament in October (online included). I will then select a list of qualifiers that represent the global trek community

The winners of these events will then be invited to face off with each other in November in an online tournament to vie for the title of World Cup Champion.

Let's see what the world can put together!

Accepted Qualifiers:

1E:
UK Nationals
Worlds

2E:
Worlds

Cool idea. Winners only, might stifle the field a little especially if someone wins more than one qualifier, unless you plan to bar cup qualifier winners from competing in other cup qualifier events.

Might I suggest Top 2 or even Top 3 to ensure a wider field, unless you expect to have dozen or more qualifier events.

Or Or, if a qualifier event winner has already made the Cup List, then you invite the runner-up?

The latter is a likely option, but I will announce it more formally depending on the number and regional diversity of tournaments.

I am also working on prizes, but know that there will be prizes for all participants in the world cup final!
