IQA World Cup 2018 Roster Policy

To ensure a smooth event, the World Cup Organizational Committee has created the Tournament Roster Policy.
The following tournament roster rules will be enforced at the IQA World Cup 2018:
Teams may have a maximum of 25 players on their tournament roster.
- To replace players as needed, teams are allowed to bring a maximum of 4 alternate players to the World Cup. This allows teams to bring an extra player from each position to the tournament (though they may bring players of whatever position they see fit). Teams do not have to pay a fee to register alternates when they have registered 21 players.
For each day of the tournament, captains may select up to 21 players to include on that day’s roster. The roster may be edited up until 8 hours before the first game of the day, at which point it must be submitted to gameplay.
- World Cup attracts teams from many backgrounds. Some will be in a position to bring alternate players, and some will not. Allowing teams to change their roster throughout the day would grant larger teams even more of an advantage than they already have.
Players not included on that day’s roster will have entry into the tournament but cannot enter the player area during a game.
- To prevent confusion, and ensure a clear distinction between players on the roster and those not on the roster, alternates not included on that day's roster cannot enter the player area during a game.
Teams may also bring a maximum of 5 non-playing staff members. These staff members are allowed entrance to the event as part of their team, but they cannot enter a game as players under any circumstances.
Only 3 non-playing staff members may be in the player area during a game.
Speaking captains can change between games. Speaking captains can be either a player or a non-playing staff member within the player area.
