How the Game is Played



Each WFTDA Member League has a Charter team that competes with other WFTDA leagues in sanctioned games that determine placement in the WFTDA Rankings. The top-ranked teams as of the June 30th Rankings compete in Playoff tournaments in late summer/fall, with the top finishers advancing to the Championship tournament. Leagues ranked below the Playoffs cutoff are then seeded into regional Continental Cup tournaments.
