Let’s talk about the road to the 2014 WTC!
This year, in order to preserve continuity, countries will be allowed to pre-register a team if they have participated in the previous WTC.
As before, there will be 32 team slots available, and countries will be limited to a maximum of 2 slots. As our objective is to bring together as many countries as possible, priority will again be given to any country’s first team over countries doubling up.
For that reason, only one team per country can pre-register. In the event that 2 specific teams from a single country pre-register, the tie-break goes to the best placing team in the previous WTC. The other team will of course still be put on the registration list.
Pre-registration will open November 14th. The following people are eligible to pre-register a team, in order of priority:
1/ A representative of an objective selection body with recognized national standing and/or a history in the WTC selection process (approval from the WTC committee required).
2/ 3 players from a single team that represented that country the previous year.
3/ A Team Captain for a team that represented that country the previous year.
Requests should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org, and one person should be named as a point of contact until Team Captains are known.
When your submission is confirmed, we will request a non-refundable deposit of 100 EUR, which will count towards the ticket price for the team. The full team ticket price is expected to be around 600 EUR.
