With the USA Ultimate Club Championships right around the corner, everyone is speculating on who will win this year’s title. Will Revolver repeat or is Ironside prepared to finish the job this year? Can anyone stop Fury? Will The Ghosts stop the West Coast’s dominance in the Mixed Division?
Answer those questions correctly and you can win great prizes in the inaugural Ultiworld Bracket Challenge presented by VC Ultimate/Printed Performance and Ulticards. The game is simple: pick winners in pool play, selecting who you think will advance to the quarterfinals. Then choose the order of finish in bracket play. You get points for correct picks. If you earn the most points, you can win great prizes. Every division* will have three winners — and the highest overall points getter will be the grand prize winner!

Looking for help making your picks? Here are some hints:
– Pick upsets in pool play. In the last five years, never have all four pools gone to seed in any of the divisions.
– Pick top seeds to win it all. In the last five years, 11 of the 15 champions were the top seed in their pool. In Open and Women’s, 9 of 10 were the overall one or two seed. Mixed is a much less predictable division.
– West Coast, Best Coast! In the last ten years, just one team from the East Coast in each Division has won a Championship. Also, lean towards San Francisco. Bay Area teams have won 16 of the last 30 titles.
