Our teams will need to bring the intensity over six days. It will be a journey where each team will face off at least once on the road to the playoffs, which gives fans a chance to see every matchup possible. That is rare for most tournaments today. We’ve also added a twist right at the start that is unique to Odyssey, agent picks before each game, that should add a layer of strategy for players and be a lot fun for people tuning in to analyze and engage with.”
