Tournament Format

What will happen is that on the Opening Weekend, all teams will compete to determine their placement. The Top 16 will start the First Weekly Survival.

For the Weekly Survival, 16 matches will be held during weekdays to select the 16 Chicken Dinner winners. When a team gets a win, they stop their run and are replaced by the 17th team in the Opening Weekend. This process repeats until 16 teams get wins. The teams that win qualify for the Weekly Finals. By the way, teams that win during this stage already earn Prize Money.

The Weekly Finals have 10 matches. Teams that win continue to earn more of the Prize Money at this stage. The team with the most amount of Prize Money at the end of the tournament becomes the Global Champion of the 2020–2021 Season.

So, which team are you rooting for in this tournament?
