The 2019 WOW Championship will be held on Saturday May 18th at Austintown Fitch High School in Austintown, OH (Youngstown). This will be the first year since the event debuted in 2013 (it was the Ohio State FRC Championship from 2013 - 2016) that it will be held in northern Ohio.

32 of the top-ranked teams in the WOW region (West Virginia - Ohio - Western Pennsylvania) will compete. Qualification rounds will seed the Top 8. Draft will be conducted like the regular Championship: 1-8, 8-1, 1-8. Pick your own backup. They have done this the past 2 years to good effect.
