Is the qualification process determined by the EBU or the county organisations?
This year my local county only had 6 teams enter a knock-out competition, from which the winning team will represent the county in the Pachabo cup and the runners up will enter a regional competition.
This is normally completed via a knock-out event, with any missing gaps filled with buys. The draw has been published, the competition started and the first round completed, however, it has since been suggested that a repercharge take place instead - with those losing teams competing against each other with the top 2 re-entering the competition.
Do we think that it would be appropriate to change the format at this stage?
It is far from ideal that the competition be so poorly supported and things will surely need to improve the legitimacy of it, but should this change be implemented now?
