Draw Details Draw Date: Monday, March 26 @ 9 PM ET Another season, another Coppa! The draw for this season's Coppa will mainly follow the same format as last season's draw, just with different pots. Pots There will be 4 pots. The pots will be ranked by Coppa title holder and Serie level first, and previous season's results second. Each of the 4 pots will contain 8 teams. Here are the pots: Pot 1: Zikry (Aston Villa), shiftee (CSKA Moscow), Friz (Spartak Moscow), RedAL925 (TSG Hoffenheim), juanchoCT14 (Sunderland), Broncos218 (Werder Bremen), HokieNYC (Stade Rennes), bigox1337 (Stoke City) Pot 2: CxMacx10 (Wolverhampton), rschwep (FC Koln), Cimmy24 (B.

Since the schedule is already set for each slot within each group, and I don't want to draw group slots when I draw each team, a quick random draw of the of the slot order will be done for each group beforehand. This is done so that certain pots aren't guaranteed 2 home games and further randomizes the playing order within the group. So for example, I'll randomize Group A and it may turn out that slot 1 goes to the 3rd team drawn, slot 2 to the 1st team drawn, etc. Hopefully that makes sense, and if it's at all confusing, just check out the previous Coppa's draw. Primarily, it's just to randomize the matches. After that, the teams will be drawn in a live format, with me posting the results here in this thread. First, the pot 1 teams will be drawn group-by-group. Then the same for pot 2. At this point, 4 groups will have 2 serie A teams, and 4 will have an A and B team. To ensure each group contains a member from each Serie, two of the A/B groups will then be drawn with one of the two Serie C representatives in Pot 3 (think of these two teams kinda as a Pot 3A). Then, the draw will continue on as normal, with the remaining Pot 3 teams drawn group-by-group, and then the Pot 4 teams drawn last. The first group matches will open the same day as Matchweek 2 (Wednesday, March 28). For any questions, just post over in the Coppa Tradizione Discussion thread.
