Online Tournament Guide

Welcome to the PACE guide for online quizbowl. This guide is broken into sections covering the four main roles in a tournament. Within each section, the guide splits into directions for Discord tournaments and Zoom tournaments. Click on the appropriate section below to get started, or start here (INSERT LINK) for a one-page overview of online tournaments.

This guide is a work in progress. It was last updated on 10/12/20. We hope to supplement it throughout the quizbowl season as the quizbowl community learns new best practices in running online tournaments. If you have any feedback about this guide, please email PACE VP of Editing Mike Bentley at
