    Edited: never mind, you did post where you saw it, it just didn't come up on my app :)


    So is the veil off and it's just varsity officially running it now? Good questions?

    Can someone explain what this means, exactly?
    I remember a thread about opening up board spots, but what is the effect of this going to be for Worlds?

    i think this means just nfinity is pulling sponsorship... but they wrote nfinity AND USASF. is that a typo? or is someone else actually running it?

    I might be reading this wrong, but to me it seems like this is saying that Nfinity will no longer be working with USASF, not that USASF is no longer producing Worlds. I'm not sure what that means exactly, ie no more Nfinity Cup, but it seems like people, especially on twitter, are freaking out that this means worlds no longer exists. Whoever wrote this press release needs to be much more clear in the future

    I read it as Nfinity and USASF have jointly decided that Nfinity will not be a sponsor.

    I just figured out the same thing. It was just worded poorly. It should've said nfinity and USASF have chosen not to continue their partnership.

    I get what you're saying. So, Nfinity didn't make the Nfinity non-sponsorship decision alone. USASF "also" agreed to end the relationship.
    I didn't quit, I got fired-type mutual decision.

    But nfinity is sponsoring champions league. The lines in the sand are getting a bit more defined I think.

    NFinity and USASF have ended their agreement - now NFinity is no longer a sponsor for USASF Worlds. USASF was never a "sponsor" of Worlds - it RUNS Worlds.

    This is how I read it as well. Am I the only one who saw this coming as soon as CL came on the scene? I agree - the line in the sand is getting quite defined.

    Sorry for the double post, but for real - are the "big name" teams still going to Worlds? Because their schedules are piquing my interest this year. And Nfinity jumping ship for CL leads me to think there's more going on than I may have thought.

    I'm going to Worlds...please tell me I'm going to have something to watch still!
