Substitution Clarification

My team is registered for a small tournament with 16 teams. Today one team dropped out making only 15 teams. My team has a secondary robot which will replace our current robot soon. The new robot isn’t complete but functional enough to be able to compete. Could the new robot be substituted for the robot that back out? This way the tournament could run normally. We assume that the new robot could not take a spot for states. The robot that backed out is still registered on robotevents.

Thanks. What state does your team compete in? I would recommend contacting the event partner and/or your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager for more details.
