Matt – I keep seeing that the tournament kicks off on March 9th but I have also heard the 2nd on a couple occasions.  Can you please confirm?  Thanks

Sure thing! Some matchups start on the 2nd and some on the 9th. The difference is the size of the bracket in each market. What market are you participating in?


Perfect! Yes, your tournament starts on March 9th as you see in the header above https://cincinnati.bfg.org/. Two organizations have first round byes so their first round match ups won’t start until March 16th.

Is their suppose to be audio ?
