    Cup rules have been updated for all cups. There is one significant change, which for now, will take effect in ALL TFS cup competitions. FIFA 15 does not allow the option for extra time/penalties in the even of a draw. Therefore, in all knockout-style matches, a replay match will be played following a draw. If the replay match also ends in a draw, then the two teams are to play a "Golden Goal" match, with the winner being the next team to score.

    This style is similar to that of the FA Cup... except that instead of penalties, we are forced to have a Golden Goal match.

    For games needing a replay, would you like stats from both games (or 3 if it goes to a 3rd golden goal game)?

    Also, Broncos218 what round of 16 streaks are on the line for returning members? I remember BESHIKTAS having a good run but can't remember exactly what it was.

    Treat Game 1 as one game and Games 2 thru any Golden Goal games as one game (so in all, 2 separate matches, with the Golden Goal games acting like extra time of the second). So for example, if you played 10 consecutive 0-0 draws before you scored in the 11th game, your GK would get 2 clean sheets- one for Game 1 and one for all those other ones.

    glad you asked! And kinda perfect timing, as I was actually looking thru some old Coppa docs and discussions last night while setting all the docs to shareable (so now anyone can view previous tourneys if they'd like- just gotta search for the right thread).

    When we reached the Quarterfinals of Season 9's Coppa, BESHIKTAS had the longest active streak of 5 consecutive trips to the Quarterfinals, spanning from Seasons 5-9. He then sat out Season 10, and lost in the Round of 16 in Season 11. I must have given him a curse, as he has yet to win a knockout stage match ever since I posted that tidbit (0-4 since, getting shutout in 3 of them).

    From Seasons 3-10 (so every Coppa on FIFA 12 & 13), only 3 people made it to the Round of 16 every time: Zikry, shiftee, and juanchoCT14 (he actually sat out Season 6, but made it all the other times). Zikry and shiftee still have their streaks active, now having advanced from their group every season from Seasons 3-13 (with Seasons 1-2 being the TFL Cup instead), while juanchoCT14 finally failed to advance for his first time ever in Season 13.

    One of shiftee, Zikry, Broncos218, or CxMacx10 has appeared in the Final every season going back to Season 1, with all four having both won and lost a Final. In fact, of the 22 Coppa finalists from Season 3-13, only 5 of them were not in that group of four, and no one else has appeared in two Finals.

    But going back to your original question regarding Round of 16 streaks... of the current members, the following have always advanced from their group and into the Coppa Tradizione Round of 16 (with number of seasons in parentheses): guayo10 (2), HokieNYC (8), shiftee (11), and Zikry (11). Every other active TFS member has failed to advance at least once.

    i'll have to look into it some more, but one stat I remember that I left out- Kevin Gomez is the only active manager to have never advanced out of his group... but he's only been around for 1 season.

    Notice draft is in a few, for future draws a live draft would be awesome to see. Maybe even pulling names out of hats or something ala the Champions and other draws. Maybe using google hangout or something like that.

    Edit: Should've posted this after the draw haha.

    i've thought about that before and might still consider doing that in the future. i've been thinking in general of changing up the draw sequence somehow since it's been pretty much the same since the start... to be continued......

    Yeah you could even add the other commissioners and each take turns drawing pots for Coppa draws as it features 4 pots (for the future). A Open draw live would be sweet.

    Hey Zikry looks like we get our yearly knock out game next week.

    Edit: By yearly, I mean seasonal. Every season it seems we play a knockout game.
