Battle of the Nerds 2019
Time - The games each start on the hour: Soccer at 5, Kickball at 6, Basketball at 7. Games last 45 minutes, allowing 15 minutes for moving between fields. Plan on being on the West Campus Green at 430pm if you want to play: soccer starts at 5 promptly.
Who Can Play - Any SFSU student is welcome to join. Although this is Battle of the Nerds, we accept any player interested. Please bring your non-STEM friends! We love our Humanities/Lib Arts brothers and sisters: nerds come in all flavors! Players that don't have a major represented will be assigned to the team with the least amount of players. Some departments are larger than others, and players may be redistributed to teams different from their majors.
Team Colors - We have a limited amount of t-shirts available this year. We have tie-dye shirts with team colors for every team, but will likely run out. Please wear your team color just in case.
Math is PURPLE
Physics/Astronomy is BLACK
Computer Science/Biology is BLUE
Chemistry/Earth Science is GREEN
Brackets - We randomly drew teams for brackets. It is what it is and won't change.
Spirit of the game - This is a friendly competition between nerds. This is an event designed to promoted camaraderie and fun. Aggressive/hostile behavior attitudes/play will not be tolerated and people who cannot maintain friendly and supportive behavior will be asked to leave.
Dealbreakers - ABSOLUTELY NO alcohol or other intoxicants. People found to be violating this rule will be asked to leave immediately and banned from the championship.

The tradition of Battle of the Nerds continues. SFSU students defend the honor of their major in a trio of sports, competing in friendly competition for the honor of being named the champion
Formerly a battle that featured Math vs Physics/Astronomy, Presidents Cordelia & Luis have expanded the games to include all nerds from all departments of SFSU CoSE.
4 teams will battle, tournament style, to determine which team will emerge as the 2019 winner. Team Math will be defending their title against their historic challenger, Team Physics/Astronomy, and also against newcomers: Team Computer Science/Biology and Team Chemistry/Earth Sciences.
Because of the size of this years battle, the tournament will be held, bracket style, over the course of 2 days - April 19 and April 26.
