Fighting Tournement Help!

I’m wanting to do a tournament in Memphis TN…but there’s only 2 things wrong with my plans…

No Venue…have ideas but nothing set in stone…

No system…my fanboy inside is telling me PS3

No specific game…Thought about SF2HDR…

I’m wanting to do it for charity, for the Saint Jude Research Hospital. The winner of the tournament will receive, 50% of the prize pool. While the other half will go to the hospital.

Please note a few things…

The only place I know that I might have a shot as a venue is a “Smokers Lounge”, so that will force the entire player pool to be 18+.

As this is my first tourney, I am kind of a noob when it comes to letting managers to use the facilities, and borrow a PS3/360 from a local game shop to help sponsor the event.

Any help would be great!


Let me get this down:

  • you want a venue,
  • got no ideas
  • you want a sponsor
  • you want free systems
  • you want some charity bullshit too


Make a thread and let people solve it for you right?

Let’s face it, when was the last time you heard anything outside of how bad the Grizzlies suck, and how awesome the Memphis Tigers have been put over on every single news outlet in the country? Never…

I have no clue how to plan, let alone run a good tournament, and I need some help and advice from people who have been to good tournaments, and quite possibly help me with some pitch ideas to help to get me to the point I want to be at.

How the fuck, is charity bullshit? Just because I want to see how this goes before I try to make it a HUGE cash event. If people like the way I run the event, people will come back for more. Just because I’m not trying to make a event right away to line the pockets of money grubbing people like yourself, dosen’t mean that there will be a huge turn out, or me running another event in the future.

By no means am I not doing any foot work of my own. And Phenomenub, I’m not asking any of you to do the work for me.

I just need some help, that’s all.
