The Fibonacci Cup!

After the success of the Inaugural ZED RUN Tournament, we are delighted to announce our second tournament, The Fibonacci Cup! Over $100K USD to be won over a 7 day period!

Let’s run it back. Only this time, bigger, and better, with twice as many racehorses moving on from the qualifying phase. A brand new tournament so nice, we’re doing it twice!

The Fibonacci Cup qualifying round will begin on November 17th at 12 AM (UTC). In addition to twice as many racehorses qualifying, this time around, we’ve made some minor changes and improvements, most notably, tournament qualifications will now be based on the average points a horse acquires in the initial stages, and racehorse stamina will not come into play.

Let’s dive in and take a look at some of the main components, added features, and most importantly, the prize pool structure for The Fibonacci Cup.

Structure

Once the qualification period ends, The Fibonacci Cup splits into two (2) different tournaments that will include the top 1,152 racehorses:

  • Tournament A comprises racehorses ranked 1 to 576 at the end of the qualification period
  • Tournament B comprises racehorses ranked 577 to 1,152 at the end of the qualification period

Tournament A and Tournament B have identical structures to one another and will both be run during the same one-day finals event.


Schedule

The tournament is scheduled to begin on the 17th November 2021 at 12 AM. All times are in UTC.

IMPORTANT! This Fibonacci Cup will not take stamina into account, so you can race your racehorse right up to the end of the qualifying period and do not have to worry about it not returning to full stamina before the Quarter Finals begin.


Prize Pool

Every tournament offers a prize pool, giving every qualified racehorse a chance to win. For The Fibonacci Cup, the Qualifying period will result in two tournament finals: Tournament A and Tournament B, each with its own prize pool as shown below.•

  • Tournament A – $73,730 USD
  • Tournament B – $31,600 USD

The distribution of the total Fibonacci Cup prize pools is broken down as follows, but may be subject to change in the future:
