    TSO-PREMIER OPEN CUP
    Draws

    The TSO-Premier Open Cup is a single-elimination knockout-style tournament. However, the bracket will not be pre-determined (like the Coppa Tradizione). Instead, a draw will be held before each round to determine the matches.

    Draw Schedule
    Round 1: Tuesday, March 31 @ 10 PM ET
    Round 2: Tuesday, April 7 @ 10 PM ET
    Quarterfinals: Tuesday, April 14 @ 10 PM ET
    Semifinals & Final: Tuesday, April 21 @ 10 PM ET

    Match Schedule
    Each user will have a week to complete their match.
    Round 1: 4/1 - 4/8
    Round 2: 4/8 - 4/15
    Quarterfinals: 4/15 - 4/22
    Semifinals: 4/22 - 4/29
    Final: 5/6 - 5/13

    Draw Sequence
    For each draw, teams will be drawn match-by-match at random, with no seeding. For the Round 1 draw, since there are 27 teams in the Open Cup this season, 5 teams will not have to play a Round 1 game. Therefore, those teams will await winners of Round 1 matches, while the remaining 22 will be drawn against each other in Round 1. So the first draw sequence will be as follows:
    -Team 1, Team 2, Team 3, etc. to Team 5 earn byes to Round 2
    -Team 6 vs Team 7
    -Team 8 vs Team 9
    -Team 10 vs Team 11
    ... and so on until we get to Team 26 vs Team 27

    And now time for the draw! This season we'll have 27 teams participating, tied for the Open Cup record high. And as KnightNoles mentioned above, no need to refresh as the posts will come in live as they are drawn.

    We'll begin with the 5 teams that will earn byes straight into Round 2 of the Cup...

    So I can call up Messi for this one? Maybe bring back Deulofeu for old times sake? At least Jonathan Dos Santos?

    PhiGuy179 - The guy from Shippensburg, PA. I'm from just north of Scranton, PA. What is your schedule like the next few days?

    Tonight, I may be going to dinner with my girlfriend and some of her family for her birthday. However, although likely, that is still unknown and I may have some free time late, after 10pm est or so.
    Thursday may be pretty open after 9pm est.
    Friday I am unavailable as I will be taking the girlfriend to NYC for the day.
    Saturday and Sunday evening are up in the air with the Easter Holiday.
    Monday I may be free after 9pm est.
    Tuesday I WILL be free after 9pm est.


    Sorry, with the holiday the schedule is a little all over the place this week.
