Tie-breaker rule

In case there are more then one player qualified for one entry in the Finals the tie-breaker rule will apply. The team with the lowest budget used would be ranked the highest. If the budget is the same, the team that had been registered earliest would be ranked the highest.

Maximum number of entries

One player can have a maximum of 2 entries in the Final tournament. Once a player has accumulated 2 entries to the EFFC Final he is no longer allowed to win entries in EFFC qualifier contests. If a player chooses to play in additional EFFC qualifier contests after they have won their two entries to EFFC Final and they happen to win an additional qualifier, they will receive €0 for their additional entry and the ticket will be awarded to the next participant.

If a player wins multiple qualifier contests that were live at the time their second entry was accumulated, they will receive the cash value of their additional qualifiers.
