RALEIGH, NC — The 2009 WFTDA regional tournament season kicks off this weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina with the Eastern Regional tournament hosted by the Carolina Rollergirls on the concrete of Dorton Arena. After years of a binary¬†East / West structure, WFTDA has split into four regions, meaning it’ll take four tournaments to determine who goes to November’s Nationals this year. 10 teams from each region will go to the tourneys this year, as opposed to the 12 from last year. In another change from previous years, only the top three will advance to Nationals — in 2007 and 2008, the final four from each region went. This has the effect of making the third place bout much more meaningful, as only the winner will get a trip to the final showdown in Philly.
