The first Stay at Home AADL-GT season swiftly approaches! This one will be held on the battlefield of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. We are hosting a preseason tournament in September and then have a regular season consisting of 3 tournaments leading up to a championship bracket. Winners of each tournament will guarantee a spot in the Grand Finals which will be held directly after Round 3! Each regular season event will have a live stream and highlight video recapping the tournament! We will be meeting up in discord for each tournament. Discord is a free app and you can sign for an account at www.discord.com/register.
