Rules


Gothenburg open team competition is the first Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition in Europe for teams only. Team competition gives you and your friends a chance to build a team and compete for gold.

The competition will be conducted under the IBJJF's regulations with the exception of the divisions which will be divided as follows:

The team
A team consists of five members for men and three for women, with one member designated team captain. The team's members do not have to come from the same club or academy - you can build a team with members of other academies.

How the team competition works:
The team competition bracket will be determined by a lottery. Team duels will consist of five matches, with the team winning the most matches advancing in the bracket. All five matches will be played, even in the event of one team clinching a victory by winning three matches.

Team roster
Team rosters must be submitted before the team's first match. The lineup on the roster determines the order in which the individuals will compete. Team lineups cannot be altered between matches, with the exception of the lineup for the finals.
