Some more teams known and names added

1st June 2011 : systems regulations published

The Championships incorporate the Bermuda Bowl, the Venice Cup, the d'Orsi Seniors Bowl and the World Transnational Open Teams Championship.

The Bermuda Bowl, Venice Cup and d'Orsi Seniors Bowl will be played as a single complete round-robin with all teams playing each other. At the end of the round-robin the first best ranked teams will be admitted to the knock-out stages. Quarter-final, Semifinal and Final KO matches will be played. The Quarter Finals for each of the events will end before the start of the Transnational Open Teams, thus enabling players eliminated from the main Championship Events to participate in the Transnational Championship.

The will be staged at the NH Conference Centre Koningshof just south of Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
