Bittorrent Distribution for Gaming Tournament

So at my local technical school, we in the Cisco Networking Academy hold a gaming tournament fund raiser every year.

Now we always provide a free copy of the game. For example this year we did CS:S and got Valve's permission to distribute the game, and they gave us free 3-day licenses to give out.

This is out current model for distribution.

Server 1 Server 2 Server 3


| | |


|||||||||| |||||||| |||||||||

Row 1 Row 2 Row 3

~20 People ~20 People ~20 People

Everyone comes in at a staggered pace, all over about 1-2 hours.

Now we distribute a script, that automatically connects to a server, and downloads the game.

How can we use Bittorrent for this? Would it provide faster download speeds to everyone?
