Why aren't I eligible for the globalchampions

There’s probably already a thread about this… I’ve been trying to sign up for that Global championship thingy, and i Keep getting this message that says: “unfortunately you are not eligible to participate as you must be of age and/or from an eligible location”
But, i’m 27!
I live in the DC area in the USA?!

Am I too old?
Is MD/DC now allowed to compete?

WTF is up with this?
