Welcome to Bergen - Norway

most comfortable and easiest means of travel will most likely be to go by plane.

Pouring Rain special rule
For Game 3 only, there will be a special rule in place to reflect Bergen’s reputation as one of the wettest places in Europe. On the Weather table Nice and Pouring Rain will be swapped, (So 4-10 is Pouring Rain, 11 is Nice) and regardless of the result in the kickoff chart there will always be a gust of wind.

All skills will be chosen before the tournament and will stay the same for all matches throughout the tournament. See the tier chart below for information on how many and which type of skills your selected team can choose. A coach may use some or all of the extra cash (tier 2 & 3 only) to buy skills.
