  • Format of Semi-Worlds in St. Louis

    What is the format for this event?

    This statement in the Q and A section of the split Championship announcement indicates that all programs will be back in the Dome in 2017 just like 2014 rather than spread throughout the city:

    "In 2015 and 2016, FIRST will host an expanded Olympic-style Championship throughout downtown St. Louis. In 2017, the St. Louis Championship will be similarly sized to the 2014 Championship held there"

    This makes sense because the number of FRC teams is going from 600 to 400 in St. Louis in 2017. Easy to fit the FTC teams back in the Dome rather than trying to shoe horn them into Union Station.

    FIRST - Please confirm that this is the plan.
