Entry Process

This competition will NOT operate a staged entry process. As such, please ensure all entries are submitted through BUCS Play prior to the closing date listed above.

To apply for this competition:

  • Entries will need to be submitted via the team entries section of our online entry system, BUCSPlay.  
  • Please speak to your Athletic Union as they will need to submit your entry.

Teams will be entered on the Team Entry section, but members of each team will not be required there, only the Captain, together with contact details.

Entry Allowance

Team entry numbers will be limited by venue capacity. Efforts will be made to accept as many teams as possible, but in the instance that the event is oversubscribed at the closing date, the following rules will apply, in order:

  • First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.
  • If there is insufficient room for all first teams, places will be awarded in the following order:
    • First teams finishing in the top half of the 2019-20 tournament
    • First teams who didn’t enter the 2019-20 tournament
    • Remaining first teams in order of their finishing position in the 2019-20 tournament 
  • If there are spaces remaining after all first teams have been awarded a space, second teams will be offered places in an order based on finishing position in 2019-20, then third teams and so on
    • Second teams with no finishing position from 2019-20 will have a lower priority than those who attended – but still above all third teams (and so on)
  • If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams with no finishing position from 2019-20, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.
