Quote:
The Blood Bowl, now known as the NAF Championship....
The Chaos Cup is based in Chicago, USA.....
The Spike trophy takes place in Canada.....
Spike and the Chaos Cup are scheduled within a week of each other, to encourage travellers to attend both.
The Dungeonbowl is the German Major, held each year in Dusseldorf.
CanCon is the Australian Major....

It is North America's Team Major. The equivalent of Eurobowl or the AusBowl State Championship.

Al, all of the team championships above, in addition to the World Cup, are classified as Majors (at least for ranking purposes) now. See the last paragraph on that page you linked.

Well, this year's was only the second one and the name is new, so it's probably not the most well known event!

We were actually just talking about explicitly listing the Team Majors on that page.

This year we had 96 coaches (well, 98 if you count two fill-ins, as some do), so 24 teams of 4. Not too big by European standards, but the biggest tournament in North America to this point.

There were 4 years in between the first NATC (which had 52 participants, I believe) and this one. I suspect we won't wait quite as long for the next one, but that's still being discussed.

We use a bidding process much like the World Cup's to decide the site. Richmond, Virginia won the hosting rights for this year, but Dallas and Toronto also had competitive bids. I wouldn't be surprised if they both give it another try next time.

Well, there are no rules against a city hosting twice.

Probably a good idea.
