National finals info:
The regional finals and the round of 16 of nationals are now complete. For the top 8 we now move into Double Elimination format
Congratulations to those who won the first round of the national playoffs. Now we are into the top 8 it will be a double elimination format, with the top 3 teams of each game being invited to play the live national finals at SkyCity Auckland over the weekend starting Friday 7th October through Sunday 9th.
If a team cannot make it to the live event, it is OK for them to play these matches online.
Please see brackets below. As you can see some teams have already played their games. As our website cannot run double-elimination brackets, we will keep the bracket pics updated here and also emailed to the respective teachers.
First round games are now “live” on the website now so you can enter the results once the game is played. Please liaise with the captains/teacher of the other teams to find a mutual time to play your games. Once we know who is playing in their respective 2nd chance matches, we will load those up.
Week starting Monday 12 September: First round of double elimination and first round of second chance bracket. All games in this round must be completed by Sunday 18th September at 8PM
Week starting Monday 19 September: Second round of double elimination, second round of second chance bracket, third round of second chance bracket. All games in this round must be completed by Sunday 25th September at 8PM.
Live event at SkyCity Friday 7 October through Sunday 9 October: Semi-finals and final
Tickets to the live event is free for all HSESL students, their parents/caregivers and also non-registered students. We will post up a registration form after round 1 as we will need to provide these tickets directly.
