HOW TO RUN TOURNAMENTS

GUIDES WE'VE DEVELOPED from OVER a decade of EVENT experience

Grow Your Brand, Fan Base and Income With Our Guides

We know that offering regular events, including gaming competitions for the local community, can really boost revenue and create a lot of excitement and attention around your business. Yet there are so many complexities and planning required in order to be able to properly execute events. That’s where we come in.

We have developed written procedures for common tournament tasks, including:

  • Before people arrive
  • When people start arriving, how to handle the various scenarios: pre-registered and pre-paid, pre-registered but did NOT pre-pay, did NOT pre-register but they have a bracket account, they didn’t register online, they are just there to play friendlies.
  • Pools & Seeding
  • Starting the bracket
  • Announcements
  • Stream information
  • Recording match set outcomes
  • Post-event experience, including stream conclusion, VOD export
  • Winners, payout calculation spreadsheets and processing
  • Social media
  • Fun side bracket ideas
  • Player rules & other tournament info
  • Examples of possible tasks to improve the tournament experience, some that could potentially be delegated to other helpers
  • Consultations on marketing plan/strategy, branding & content

Power Up Your Events With Influencers!

We’ve developed successful strategies to bring local talent into your center. Our own arena has received worldwide attention and media by virtue of our relationship with Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert, formerly one of the best Counter-Strike players in the world. Jordan’s appearances at our tournaments and shout-outs significantly helped increase our local attendance and dramatically spiked stream viewship and website traffic.
