Golden Gate Cup 2018 update 10/21/18

Updated: October 22, 2018

We are getting closer to the first game of the highly anticipated Golden Gate Cup 2018! We are very excited t o host this 8th edition of the annual Golden Gate Cup Championship.

It is a very combative field with primary California teams. We have three teams competing this year, who previously won the US National Floorball Championship.
We had to close the registration for GGC today, since we do not have the capacity to handle more teams on one rink, at the Silver Creek Sports Plex.

When we had 8 teams registered we floated the idea of a one day tournament only.
This was well received by all teams but is at this point impossible to do.

We are hereby confirming the initial plans and schedule, especially since we have 10 teams registered and confirmed. We have no other choice then to run the tournament for 2 days.
You can see all registered teams here: https://admin.esportsdesk.com/leagues/teams.cfm?leagueID=29510&clientID=6519

We have attached a preliminary schedule in PDF format, based on 10 teams. No further email communication will be sent via email in regards to the schedule, the final schedule will be posted at:
https://admin.esportsdesk.com/leagues/schedules.cfm?leagueID=29510&clientID=6519

Each team is ranked based on the previous 3 years placement at the US Nationals, Golden Gate Cup and CA State Championship.
This is to make both groups equally competitive and ensure the top ranked teams do not play each other until the playoffs.

Group A
1San Francisco
2So-CAL
3USA-MU19
4Sacramento
5Fresno-MP

Group B
