BC Cup 2014 - Announcement

This is the BCQC's annual solo, open quiz to crown the Best Sports Quizzer. This is the sixth edition. ( Reports for 2009201020112012 and 2013 editions). 

First, a 30 question elim determines 8 qualifiers (i.e. Quarter finalists). These 8 people take part in a 60 question quarter final. The top four go through to the semi final. The semi-final will consist of 36 questions. The top two then go to the final. The scoring is reset to zero after every round.
The finalists will then face off one-on one for a 28 question final. The match consists of a home leg and an away leg. Home leg essentially means you get direct questions. If one gets a direct question wrong which the opponent answers, it counts as an away goal and is used for tie breakers (as per UEFA rules ).

So that's a total of 154 questions + tie breakers.

1st place: Rs 1500
2nd place: Rs 1000
