Will it be the NPPL or the PSP? And why the hold up on opening up registration for each league's first event? What are they waiting for? The NPPL has a little more maneuvering room with their event scheduled for April 1-3. The PSP launches March 11-13. Are they each concerned that slow early numbers might dissuade some fence sitters? Are they playing chicken with entry fees? Waiting for the other guy to post theirs first? Narrowing the window of opportunity may build some tension. It may create an artificial scarcity or at least the appearance of limitations on available opportunities and pressure teams to sign quickly once registration finally does open up. But if so every day delayed heightens the importance of every day remaining in which to register. Of course the usual rule of thumb was to give teams as much time as possible and incentivize the decision-making process by offering the cheapest entries to the earliest registrants.
UPDATE: NPPL announces registration for Huntington Beach will open January 26th.
