STRUCTURE & DIVISIONS
The 2019 Collegiate Championship will be a swiss-system group stage leading into a single-elimination knockout stage tournament.
The group stage will consist of 5 round 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-2 series. A 2-0 match score will grant the winning team 3 points, and the losing team 0 points. A 1-1 match score will grant both teams 1 point.
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 ICC 2019, 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, until the tournament final which will follow a Best-Of-5 format.
