Team size is limited to six players and tickets must be purchased six at a time. Seating is on a first-sold, first-served basis. There are 1140 PLAYER tickets (190 teams) available in 5 different seating zones. Teams who buy their tickets and register first will be placed highest in the queue for seating assignments and will receive (what we think) are the best seats available in their zone based on their placement in the queue. This generally means closest to furthest from the stage. As more tickets are sold, the further back teams will be. Seating position is not a guarantee of ticket purchase and will be determined by Geeks Who Drink.
