    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.

    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.

    LIVE CUP DRAW

    Procedure:

    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.

    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.

    Example:
    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.

    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.
