2019 Triple Crown format confirmed

Ahead of the UK high goal season kicking off next month, the AAP have announced the format for the upcoming 2019 Triple Crown, due to commence in October. 

Despite rumours that The Tortugas and Hurlingham Opens’ formats were potentially going change, ultimately causing the 10 Argentine Open teams to be split into two leagues of five teams in accordance with their accrued points, the decision has been made to continue with the format as per 2017 and 2018. Therefore, The Tortugas Open will be played with eight teams with a single elimination format, which will be followed by The Hurlingham Open in which eight teams will be split into two leagues. 
The Argentine Open will see 10 teams participating, but no date or fixtures have yet been confirmed. 
Furthermore, it has been suggested that AAP President Eduardo Novillo Astrada will announce a new 2020 Argentine Open format as early as next month, following the beginning of the British season. We await confirmation from across the Atlantic.
