About[change source]

The WikiCup is a championship which will take place for the first time on Simple English Wikipedia. The cup is played and won by skill of editing, in which the purpose of the cup is to encourage editing and to make editing fun here on Wikipedia.

The tournament is played in the style of the FIFA World Cup. Editors are split into groups, each running for a certain period of time, before being compared and the top two from each round will move to the next round. This continues until there are just 4 users left, when a Semi-Final will occur. From this, the top two users will progress to the Final, and the bottom two will progress to the 3rd Place Edit-Off, or "Plate".

The winner will get a wikicup, the runner-up another award and everyone else will get an award just for taking part.
