BFA Cup Announcement

Post by Boris » Tue Sep 06, 2011 6:22 pm

Registration for the 2011 BFA Cup closes on 16th September.

If no more than 20x teams have registered by the deadline the semi-final stages will not be held and the competition will progress directly to the final stage held on 20-11-11 the day after the UK Championships. To date a total of 14x teams have registered.

BFA Cup Posters and Rules Sheets have now been sent to all known venues in the UK, either directly or via their table operators, and it therefore remains possible that there will be a flood of late registrations. A final decision on whether the semi-finals will still be held will therefore be made once registrations have closed.

The finals venue has not yet been confirmed but will be announced shortly.

It is confirmed that the BFA Cup Semi-Finals are cancelled and all registered teams will compete in the finals at the UKC on 20th November. The venue should be confirmed by the end of this week.

A total of 16x teams had registered by the 16th September deadline, several of which are not complete, and many of which have not yet paid.

It is therefore proposed to keep registration open on a first-come first-served basis, any further teams entering above will be placed on a reserve list in the event of teams not being able to confirm their participation and line-ups at least 1 week in advance of the competition. In in the event of more entries the number of groups can be increased in multiples of 4x teams, however any new teams must be prepared to provide their own tables if required.
