NHL CCC Cup Tournament


Let's have our own version of the Stanley Cup race. Get ready for the CCC NHL 20 Playoffs!

About the Event

You've competed all summer, your team is ready and you know what that means... it's PLAYOFF TIME! We're back with another NHL Tournament but this time with a few (hat)tricks up our sleeves! Stanley Cup? Never heard of her. We're all about the CCC Cup. Turn on your favourite gaming console and join Calgary Corporate Challenge's September NHL Playoffs Tournament on September 16th and 17th.

Players will select one NHL team to compete as for the duration of the tournament*.

The tournament will consist of two rounds: Night 1 - Round Robin (2 game Matches) and Night 2 - Best of 3 Series Playoffs. We're in the big leagues now!

Own a console but never played NHL 20 before? This is the perfect time to give it a try! NHL 20 is currently Free for all EA Play members! For the low price of $4.99 (one month subscription, can be cancelled) you could play this game and more!

*Upon registering, players will submit their Top 5 choices. Priority will be given to those who have participated in past CCC NHL 20 tournaments. The remaining team selections will be on a first-come first-served basis.

Please Note: All participants must be on our Discord Server on the day of the event. Our "CCC Esports" Server invite link: https://discord.gg/Ue4qAsC. Participants will proceed to their pool-specific Voice Channels at least 15 minutes prior to the first game start. Pools and schedules will be emailed to participants by the morning of the event. The NHL Voice and Text Channels are where the CCC Staff & Event Coordinators will be available for questions.

PS4 Users - Please join the PS4 Community "Calgary Corporate Challenge" at least 24 hours in advance of the tournament.

What do I do after I register? Get ready! CCC will email all participants on the morning of the event with schedules and more information.

Why Extraordinary Circumstances?

We've been hearing it for awhile now and, even though it's been roughly 1000 years in self-isolation, it remains true: We are living in unprecedented times. Due to the ever-evolving situation with COVID-19, and with our participants' safety at the forefront, the September Games are no longer viable. Unlike Ross Geller though, we've managed to "PIVOT!".

What's better than 16 days of events? 3 months of events! Calgary Corporate Challenge remains committed to providing our participating companies opportunities to promote teamwork, community building, employee engagement, and networking. We are proud to present a brand new slate of events in these Extraordinary Circumstances.

What will the 2020 CCC Games: Extraordinary Circumstances look like?

Much like the September Games, Extraordinary Circumstances will be a mixed bag of 'Sports' Events, Monthly Challenges, and Special/Social Events, all designed to bring people together! From July to September, CCC will be hosting numerous tournaments and facilitating challenges to get people active and connecting. What are you waiting for?

So who can participate in Extraordinary Circumstances?

In an effort to get even more of your company involved, CCC has eased restrictions on employee participation. Does your office have 40 people who want to participate in trivia? Great, 10 teams it is! Is the entire office going to compete in the Suncor Step Challenge? The more the merrier! Plus, for the first time, every employee from any Canadian office of a registered company is invited to join in. Surprise! Virtual & digital events have far fewer participation limits.

How will I connect with my coworkers and other participants?

Discord will be our main form of communication during events! (See the next FAQ for more)

Zoom will also make an appearance at some of our events. While we're familiar with the perils of "Zoom fatigue", we promise these events won't feel like just another Zoom meeting!

We also strongly encourage our Company Captains and Team Captains to foster these relationships and connections by organizing their own remote team huddles. We want the spirit of the September Games to live on through these events, so get those happy hour drinks flowing and look at how your team measures up on our Event Leaderboards!

What is Discord?

Discord is easy, intuitive, and it's free! We will use Discord Servers to get many of our tournaments organized, but the channels will also remain open for our participants to stay connected throughout the events. Who couldn't use a little more human interaction these days?

What's the difference between an Event and a Challenge?

Events will take place on a specific date & time. Challenges follow a "do-it-yourself" model and can be done at your convenience within a certain time frame!

Are there trophies and medals to be won this year?

Yes, Spirit Trophies are on the line! Divisional Trophies and Medals will not be awarded this year, but that doesn't mean there won't still be winners. Bragging rights are still up for grabs.

More information about the following will be provided as soon as possible:

Special Events including the Design Challenge, CEO Challenge, Halftime Party, and Closing Ceremony
