How the Sponsor Pool Works
Because this is the very first tournament of its kind, sponsorships will be different. Until a tournament occurs, it is unknown how many competitors will attend.
To provide a fair solution, we will be having a sponsorship pool. All sponsors that donate $100 or more will enter the sponsorship pool. Increments of $100 will count as that many entries. So $357 will count as three entries.
Once the pool entry closes, each sponsor will have a percentage of the final pool count. This called a
pool percentage. After the competitors separated, there will a final amount of divisions. A sponsor’s pool percentage will determine the amount of divisions they will receive. These divisions will be distributed at random.
After all competitors are separated, there are 100 divisions. Four sponsors contributed into a sponsorship pool with a total of 30 entries. The pool percentage for each sponsor then determined the amount of divisions a sponsor received.
|Sponsor||Entries||Pool Percentage||Calculation||Divisions Received|
From the example given above, Sakami has the most entries in the sponsorship pool. They will be the platinum sponsor for the tournament. Their name will appear under the logo for the Sakubara Invitational.
