HOW TO RUN TOURNAMENTS

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

Ongoing tournaments provide sustainability and predictable income for your center. But how does one start?

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 Smash.gg 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 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
