British Quidditch Cup 2020 Spot Distribution

For the 2019/2020 season the number of spots for the British Quidditch Cup allocated to each region will be determined by how well that region did at the previous BQC as well as by how many teams attend each regional event.

  1. Three spots shall be awarded to the medallists from the Development Cup held in the same season as BQC.
    • If a medalling Development Cup team declines their spot, it shall be awarded to the next-highest ranked team from Development Cup who does not already have a spot.
    • If no Development Cup teams accept the spot, it shall be included in the number of available BQC spots in Section 5
  2. A Performance Ratio (PR) will be calculated for each region
    1. Points will be awarded to regions based on the performance of teams from that region at BQC
    2. The points will be determined by the team’s stage of elimination from the tournament:
      • UB Final 8 points
      • UB Semi-final 7 points
      • UB Quarter-final 6 points
      • UB Round of 16 5 points
      • LB Final 4 points
      • LB Semi-final 3 points
      • LB Quarter-final 2 points
      • LB Round of 16 1 point
    3. A region’s PR will be the number of points earned by teams from that region divided by the total number of points available (124)
  3. A Size Ratio (SR) will be calculated for each region
    1. This will be done, as in previous seasons, by dividing the number of teams that attend that region’s regional tournament by the number of teams in attendance across both regional tournaments.
  4. The PR and SR will be averaged (summed and divided by 2) to get the Averaged Ratio (AR)
  5. The AR for each region will be multiplied by the number of available BQC spots and rounded to the nearest whole number to determine how many spots that region gets
    • The minimum number of spots a region can be awarded is 12
    • If there is an odd number of available spots and both teams have an AR of exactly 0.5, the region of the reigning BQC Champion shall get the extra spot.

The formula can be described as follows.
