We are interested in your viewpoint on this.

We spend a lot of time looking at the district definitions, where teams are popping up and then we work to get tournaments close to the teams as much as possible.

Here is some data – the top 3 cities in each of the 4 currently defined districts (as of 9/23) and the likely Qualifier Tournament capacity (ie not just what is published as confirmed) in each city:

 

 #teams  QT capacity in city
 Capital
Sacramento 26 0
Folsom 19 44
Modesto 6 16
 Peninsula
Cupertino 26 16
Palo Alto 22 16
Saratoga 22 0
 East Bay
Fremont 60 0, possibly 12
San Francisco 21 16, possibly 32
San Ramon 15 0
 Silicon Valley
San Jose 120 108
Santa Clara 28 48
Milpitas 11 0

 

What is your take away?
