    Welcome to the Second Arena Tournament.

    After the success of the first tournament, we've decided to look at another sport that has appeal all over the world - Basketball

    The size of the tournament will be determined by your response, however we are hoping for at least 64 nominations to have a decent size tournament. Depending on the response, we can even increase that figure to 128

    Much the same as other tournaments across the boards, there are a few guidelines to nominating

  2. You can only nominate four people per post, and you cannot post back to back. If you ignore this rule, your nominations after the first four will be edited out, as well as any back to back posts


  3. You can nominate either current or retired players. There is no limitation of nominations for either category


  4. The final tournament list will be edited solely at the discretion of the tournament host. However, a shortlist will be posted in this thread prior to the commencement of the tournament for discussion and dissection.


  5. Remember that this is a favourite player tournament, not a best or most influential. Nominate, and vote for, your favourites.

    Go for it, and have fun
