2024 Illinois FTC Championship Tournament

March 1-2, 2024 

The FIRST Tech Challenge Illinois Championship Tournament is an intense two-day event showcasing robots developed and operated by teams of high school students. The competing robots are the best robots from the FTC Qualifying Events held all around Illinois. The robots represent the product of focused brainstorming, real-world teamwork, dedicated mentoring, and managing project deadlines. The mentor/student interaction is integral to the FTC program. It takes a lot of hard work to develop a competitive robot, and it shows when you see them in action at the Illinois Championship Tournament. 

The 2024 Illinois State Championship is a 44 team, 2 division event.   Teams will be divided into two divisions of 22 teams.   Teams will play in 5 qualifying matches in alliances of randomly generated teams within their division.   On Saturday afternoon, the top seeded teams in each division will form four alliances of 3 teams to compete in the divisional elmination rounds.   These elimination round matches will be played to determine divisional winners.   On Saturday evening, the divisional winners will face off in an overall event final to determine the winning alliance.
