If the WCP Cup was a MasterCard commercial the Slogan would be:
Team entry: $900
Tournament Pass: $75
Personal Jersey: $60
Chance to win the championship: Priceless
Unfortunately, only one team wins the championship and everyone else is left grousing about how poor they are after the final game.
Glass half full – The tournament is always fun.
Glass half empty – It’s going to cost even more this year.
That’s right, more fees; especially if you plan on adding someone to your squad from another roster. The transfer fee is in effect to the tune of $200 per player. You can shrug it off by saying, “Well, we owe it to the team we plundered.” But that’s not true. Because who you’re actually paying is the WCP organizing committee.
Let that sink in.
On top of the team registration, the tournament pass, the jerseys, the $5 beer and the $2 cover charge for the draw ceremony coming up – you’re also now directly paying the organizers to change your roster from year-to-year.
Coming next year: A per-player TV charge going to the organizers for the privilege of being broadcast on Access7.
