STRUCTURE & DIVISIONS
The 2019 Collegiate Championship will consist of a swiss-system group stage leading into a
single-elimination knockout stage.
The group stage will consist of 5 rounds of matches, in which teams will be paired for matches
against other teams of a similar point score. The matches will be a Best-Of-1 matches. The
winning team will be granted 3 points, and the losing team will be granted 0 points.
Once the group has concluded, the top portion of teams will be seeded into the knockout stage. The number of teams entered into the knockout stage from the group stage is dependent on the number of entrants into each division of the 2019 Collegiate Championship, and is at the discretion of ICE admins upon creation of the bracket. The knockout stage is single-elimination. Teams will be directly seeded into this bracket based on their final position in the group stage. Matches in the knockout stage will follow a Best-Of-3 format.
