Qualification Process

The original allocation was for 18 teams. The new allocation is for 24 teams! The new 6 spots are being allocated different than the first 18 as a measure of equity to promote diversity, development, and encourage greater regional interest in the event.

Like last year, we are using the new ProRated Ranking System for regional allocation which factors a region’s performance over the previous four years.
