Re: 2018 Sparta Fall Tournament - 27th Oct 2018, Sparta HS

Our initial field is full! If we are able to secure enough staff, we will consider an expansion to 24 teams. Given that this is the first year for Sparta hosting, if we expand the field to 24, we won't expand further.

(Related: if you are available to staff, please let us know!)
