Player-run tournament Finals (Watch here!)
Well, this definitely was not the year we had hoped for. Originally, we planned for an awesome weekend in Richmond, VA, and then made a last ditch effort for Buffalo, NY for the 2020 World Championship. Unfortunately, COVID-19 resulted in both plans being canceled. And while we are disappointed that there will not be a World Champion crowned in 2020, there was another tournament that did happen.
A few players organized a smaller, but highly competitive tournament. Due to restrictions on event size, only 36 players (18 teams) participated with no spectators in attendance to keep numbers down. The tournament did feature many of the top teams in the sport, including 3 World Champions and prior playoff teams.
It certainly was not the same without the rest of our community of players, and we cannot wait to see everyone next year. However, this was certainly better than nothing, as it did provide a chance to bring you one of the best Finals we’ve ever got on video (granted, this was a very simple production this year with only one camera). We put a lot of work into this video, so enjoy! A rematch of last year’s World Finals: Stallion Survivors vs Young Guns in one epic series filled with tons of great plays and clutch shots! Special thanks to Sean Triske for commentary.
This fall and winter, we will be assembling the first Board of Directors to take the sport to the next level. We understand there is a lot of work to be done, but we are very excited for the future and implementing our plan to grow our sport. We cannot wait to share more as we progress along this journey, and we thank all of you who have been so supportive over the years. Until next time, keep on jamming!
