Championship eligibility criteria for 2014 has just been posted here: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/championship-eligibility-criteria
Eligibility is the same as it was for the 2013 FIRST Championship, Wild Cards and all.
Note that with the growth of our program, the number of waitlist slots we will be able to offer teams is likely to be very small. We can’t predict the exact number, as it depends partially on the rate at which teams offered merit-based slots accept, but it would not surprise me if we could offer only 20 or fewer waitlisted teams slots at the FIRST Championship.
I’ll blog again soon.
