Sorry if I'm misunderstanding things but the initial post said a cap of 20 teams and there are 19 listed right now and it says the field is closed.

EDIT: Wording

Note - this tournament WILL be using advanced stats with buzzpoints, etc. We are hoping to provide a public preview (while concealing answerlines, etc.) similar to Jordaens after the tournament.
