The Zagreb Random Pro Am, hosted by the Zagreb 2022 bid’s organising team, was held on August 29th and 30th 2020 and comprised of 32 teams, some registered together and some randomly assigned as partnerships. The Chief Adjudication Panel consisted of Emma Lucas, Matt Hazell, and Lovro Sprem.

The tournament featured three preliminary rounds followed by a break to three finals corresponding with the positions 1 – 4; positions 5 – 8; and positions 9 – 12. Each final debated the same motion: “For crimes with low prosecution and conviction rates (e.g. sexual assault, domestic violence or membership of criminal gangs), THW lower the burden of proof from “beyond reasonable doubt” to “on the balance of probabilities”.”
