Battle of the Brands: Second Round / All Regions

Thanks again for participating in Lessing-Flynn’s Battle of the Brands. No one likes a two month contest, so to speed this up we’ve decided to post the entire second round on one day. Below you will find the regions and the match-ups. We worked hard on the match-up names (about 15 minutes), so read them, they make us happy.battle_of_the_brands_bracket_round_2-300x247
