The final 2016 International WFTDA Playoff tournament in Madison, Wisconsin will decide the final three Division 1 teams that will attend Championships along with London, Texas, and Montréal from D1 Montréal; Rose City, Denver, and Jacksonville from D1 Columbia; and Victoria, Angel City, and Rat City from D1 Vancouver. After the award ceremony on Sunday, WFTDA will also announce seeding for the Champs bracket in Portland, Oregon this November.
MADISON, WI – With a nearly six-year history of winning games to boast of – save that single Championship game last year against winners Rose City – Gotham has continued to be the kind of powerhouse team that no one actually expected might be taken down at Playoffs.
The 3rd place game of WFTDA Playoff tournaments usually gets most of the anxious focus of fans since it’s the game that decides the third entrant to Champs. It must not be forgotten however, that the 1st place game determines which team wins the coveted Champs bye entrance, and an easier path in the final bracket. So both Gotham and Minnesota played the final game accordingly, with defensive formations in high alert mode, but the beehive ultimately took home the gold for Gotham, 326-71.
