    So it looks like we're going to have a bit of break here during the holidays, but I know some people still want to get their fifa fix in without having to wait until january. So to fill up the time in between, we'll be holding a World Cup! This is going to be a pretty informal setup, and is completely voluntary.

    So here's the main setup:
    -Only international teams
    -Random team selection (but only the best available teams- all 9 5*, all 6 4.5*, and 4* USA)
    -Same format/rules as the world cup (just google the rules if you have any questions)
    -Looking to just cap it to the first 16 who sign-up

    Schedule:
    Team Draw: Monday, December 19
    Group Stage: Monday, December 19 - Monday, December 26 (games can be played in any order)
    Quarterfinals: Tuesday, December 27 - Thursday, December 29
    Semifinals: Friday, December 30 - Monday, January 2
    Final: Tuesday, January 3 - Thursday, January 5

    To keep things moving and to make sure this all gets done in time, those dates will not change. So if someone only plays 2 group stage games by the deadline, we'll just move on with the current standings (& w/o me awarding forfeits). For the quarters/semis, I may have to award a forfeit depending on who made the best effort to play.

    Again, this is going to be a pretty informal setup just to fill up the time. So I will not be keeping track of any stats, and therefore will only need the score & any cards for each game (and you can post scorers and any other info if you'd like)

    This is completely voluntary, so if you'd like to enter, just post below. First 16 will make up the tourney.

    4 spots left!

    So there are 9 5* and 6 4.5* international teams. So since we'll need 1 4* team, rather than randomly selecting one of the available teams, I think we'll just throw in the USA to make things a little more patriotic.
