This year is the 4th Canadian 4v4 Ultimate Championship (C4UC) and every year Ontario has grown in the number of participants. Last year Ontario had 18 teams participate, which was a 50% increase from the previous year’s 12 teams.
Sectionals offers more opportunity for teams to find their true standing amongst competition and allows regionals to have a more manageable schedule as the 4v4 scene develops in Ontario.
Yes. All teams wanting to participate in O4UC must play sectionals.
Due to limited availability of indoor facilities and the necessary time for a fair tournament schedule with bracket play, Ontario Ultimate has decided to move to a sectionals to regionals play-in structure for teams wanting to compete at C4UC.
Sectionals offer more opportunity for teams to find their true standing amongst competition and allows regionals to have a more manageable schedule as the 4v4 scene develops in Ontario. Additionally, with the number of competitive players and the small team size of 4v4, the number of competitively touring 4v4 teams in Ontario is expected to grow.
As these events are part of the Canadian 4v4 Ultimate Championships, teams must abide by the C4UC Tournament Manual or risk disqualification. At this time, the 2018 version is unavailable, please check Ultimate Canada for the latest news (see 2017 manual here).
See the 2018 C4UC Roster Rule Change. Key takeaways:
– Each Province is allocated 2 bids (20). Each Territory is allocated 1 bid (3). The host Region is allocated 1 additional bid (1). For a total of 24 teams.
– Rosters and Alternates must be endorsed by PSO, submitted to Ultimate Canada
