- TFL CUP FINAL
The live cup draw will take place during Week 3 (Matchdays 5-6) regardless of what actual day that falls on. Therefore, the live cup draw may not necessarily fall on Wednesday, March 16th as previously stated.
If we have a Serie B in place by then, will this include those teams as well?
yes, next season we will include Serie B in the TFL Cup tournament. Depending on the total number of teams, the top finishers in this year's Serie A will receive first-round byes, but the rest of the tournament bracket will be randomly drawn.
This is really awsome......damn I wish I could score some goals.
Ideally I'd like to do that broadcast thing for the final, but I have no idea how to do that
You mean the justintv or the livestream thing? I know a couple guys in my Madden league who do that for the playoffs and super bowl. They have a phone that can record the footage.
yes that. I have no idea how to do that, but i'd like to
Watch this space!

LIVE CUP DRAW
detalis to follow...
LIVE CUP DRAW
Each team will be randomly given a number, 1 through 12, by a computer program that I have yet to google. Once the numbers are assigned, I will draw numbers out of a hat. The first number will correspond with Team 1 on the bracket, the second number will be Team 2, etc.
Teams 1, 4, 7, 10 receive first-round byes. In future iterations of TFL Cup, byes will be awarded to the top X (depending on total number of teams in TFL Serie) finishers in Serie A.
The results will be posted on this thread as they are drawn.
Awesome man. I'll have to keep checking in on my phone.
2 CUP ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. Serie B WILL BE INCLUDED in the Cup Competition this season
2. Due to a scheduling conflict, the LIVE DRAW will be pushed up to 1pm this Wednesday (16th)
As this is a very new and fluid situation, I have made some changes to the cup draw procedure:
Since there are 22 teams entering the Cup Competition, 10 teams will not have to play Round 1 matches. Of those 10 teams, 6 will await the winner of a Round 1 matchup, while the remaining 4 will be drawn against each other in Round 2.
Team a / Team b winner vs Team C
Team d / Team e winner vs Team F
Team g / Team h winner vs Team I
Team j / Team k winner vs Team L
Team m / Team n winner vs Team O
Team p / Team q winner vs Team R
Team S vs Team T
Team U vs Team V
In the above template, lower-case teams (a,b,d,e,g,h,j,k,m,n,p,q) begin play in Round 1
In the above template, upper-case teams (C,F,I,L,O,R,S,T,U,V) begin play in Round 2
After Round 2 is complete, the remaining 8 teams will be re-drawn in pairs for Round 3.
After Round 3 is complete, the remaining 4 teams will be re-drawn in pairs for the Semifinal.
After the Semifinal is complete, the remaining 2 teams will play for the TFL CUP Championship.
This procedure essentially renders the 'bracket' useless.
**THE LIVE CUP DRAW**
How it will (now) work:
Each team will be drawn out of a hat, starting with Team a in the above template, and continuing through to Team V. The first team drawn will be the home team. The Round 2 games will be played at the home of the team with a Round 1 Bye.
Once the draw is complete, the schedule will be posted making everything clear, and Round 1 will open at the conclusion of Serie A Week 4.
ROUND 1 SCHEDULE:**Home team listed first**
Besiktas 1-0 FulhamEverton 0-3 Santos FCGenoa 0-2 NapoliSporting CP 0-3 FC Schalke 04Werder Bremen 3-4 PalermoFenerbahce 2-3 Udinese
Serie B teams should not be able to get a bye for Round 1. I think you should first pick 2 teams out of a hat that is all Serie A teams. Combine those 2 with the 10 Serie B teams to assign them the lower case letters (that will make them play Round 1). Then the remaining Serie A teams can be assigned their upper case letters out of a hat to join at round 2. You could also just take the bottom 2 Serie A teams instead of making it random, more fair in my opinion but not the end of the world otherwise, just don't pick Bursaspor
We have no history to go on. Maybe one of the Serie B teams is a ringer and goes the entire season undefeated...surely they should get a Round 1 bye...but in your system they can't because they are in Serie B.
Next season's TFL Cup will award the top finishers in Serie A with Round 1 byes. This season, it is entirely random.
yup...that's gonna be @eronie87...knockin down every team in Serie A and B.
Oh great.. no pressure or anything
i'm only half-convinced @eronie87 is not @grundlebug
haha right...that'd be weird. she's sitting right next to me.
Watch it @RedAL925
a likely excuse......
ok ok ok, you found me out. I'm really eronie87. I just want two teams to play as so I can play double the games.
