Could you, Olga,
to your 1st question the short answer is yes,
such un-constrained pseudo-liberal freedom-to-associate,
granted here, by the Competition organiser statement,
to enter any amount of [teams]
the Competition from falling into any of dis-functional trivial Nash-equillibria,
the nature of the Competition?
Under normal circumstances,
Competition Rules ought setup and protect Competition, don't they?
