Normalized Designated Driver Calculation

We want every team to be on a level playing field in the RESPONSIBILITY CUP, so rather than using the raw number of designated driver signups, we will calculate a normalized number of signups per 20,000 fans using the following formula:

The league-wide average attendance for the 2014 season was approximately 20,000. Using this as a baseline, we will calculate a normalized number of designated driver signups each game that will take stadium size and ticket sales out of the equation.

Let’s take a look at an example. Team X and Team Z are facing off in the RESPONSIBILITY CUP:

Number of Signups
Normalized Number of Signups
Team X 100 22,000 91
Team Z 90 18,000 100
