FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us below.

Why should my company compete in the SGFCEC?

Many of your employees already play games 3-5 times a week and have no idea that the employees around them are playing the same game. This league will allow for your employees to find common ground, in gaming, to build and sustain new relationships that will help with collaboration inside the company and open the door for further development and opportunities for your employees as well.

What are the basic requirements for a team?

All members of the team will need to work for the company you represent and live within the SGF Metropolitan Area. A valid email for the company for each player is required. The exception is smaller companies with 250 local employees or less – we want you to be able to compete by combining with another company of less than 250 local employees.

How do you define the “Springfield Metro?” (and other eligibility requirements)

The Springfield Metropolitan Area is defined by counties, including:
Greene, Polk, Dallas Webster, Christian, Taney, Lawrence, Jasper, Newton and Dade Counties

Player Eligibility Requirements

What happens if our team can’t play one week?

Work with the admins and the other teams captain to reschedule the match as soon as you know of any scheduling issue. If you need to change the date within 24 hours of the match, your team will forfeit that weeks game. {Have plenty of subs}

What are the rulesets for each game we play?

Check out rules page here for more information

How many teams are going to play? Are there any limits?

We hope to fill 9 teams per game. Depending on interest level, we may limit each game to 9 teams to fill an 8 week league…if we can fill 18 teams, we will do that – it is going to be determined based on the amount of interest we see in the coming weeks.
