    Draw Details

    Draw Date: Thursday, May 31 @ 6 PM ET

    With holidays and summer vacations on the horizon, the Coppa Tradizione will be starting a bit earlier this year. Mostly the same format, but a couple of twists this time around w/ the schedule and groupings.

    Schedule
    The first group match games will open immediately following the draw. However, with July 4th coming up and the need for more time during the knockout stages, time has been added for the Round of 16 and the Quarterfinals. The schedule will be as follows:
    5/31 - 6/6: Matchweek 1 will have Group Match 1
    6/6 - 6/13: Matchweek 2 will have Group Match 2
    6/13 - 6/20: Matchweek 3 will have Group Match 3
    6/20 - 6/27: Matchweek 4 will be an off week (cushion for unplayed group stage games)
    6/27 - 7/8: To plan for July 4th and to allow for extra time in general, the Round of 16 will be during Matchweek 5 & half of Matchweek 6
    7/8 - 7/18: The remainder of Matchweek 6 and all of Matchweek 7 will be the time for Quarterfinals
    7/18 - 7/25: Back to normal scheduling, with Semifinals during Matchweek 8
    7/25 - 8/1: Coppa Tradizione Final

    Groups
    With Friz gone for the entire month of July, he would miss the entire knockout stage if he were to advance. So rather than awarding a lucky person a free forfeit down the road, his spot will be forfeited in this season's Coppa Tradizione. Therefore, Group H will only have 3 teams (no one from Pot 4). Also of note, all groups contain at least 1 representative from each Serie level. However, Group H's "4th team", which would have been from Pot 4, will be considered its C side. In other words, Group H may or may not have a Serie C member, as its final unused spot will be seen as what should have been the Serie C team.

    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 first 3 pots will contain 8 teams, while Pot 4 will contain only 7 teams due to Friz's absence. Here are the pots:

    Pot 1: Broncos218 (Werder Bremen), CxMacx10 (Flamengo), rschwep (B. M'gladbach), Zikry (Ajax), RedAL925 (PSV Eindhoven), shiftee (CSKA Moscow), HokieNYC (Sunderland), bigox1337 (Stoke City)

    Pot 2: vipermansa (Montpellier), IJGator (Corinthians), hokie79 (Fulham), BESHIKTAS (QPR), BigSmooth33 (Bologna), UcanHateMeNow (SC Braga), Nickaepi (Aston Villa), jb_banco (Olympiakos)

    Pot 3: heznfire (Parma), LasVegasFC (VfL Wolfsburg), Yak61 (FC Kobenhavn), kaptainkracker1 (Dinamo Moscow), snake3249 (Sao Paulo), Geneseo98 (Everton)*, OhDaesu19 (Palermo)*, redwings8831 (LA Galaxy)*
    *Serie C team, will be drawn separately (details below)

    Pot 4: Go Devils (Cagliari), Frenchie1916 (VfB Stuttgart), Bling_CO (West Ham), danwin (Athletic Club), GovernedSpy (Rubin Kazan), Isaac Oyer (Stade Rennes), TBD

    Draw Sequence
    With the World Cup draw, they draw a team and a slot (1-4) within the group. 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. If that'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, 3 groups will have 2 serie A teams, and 5 will have an A and B team. To ensure each group contains a member from each Serie, three of the A/B groups will then be drawn with one of the three Serie C representatives in Pot 3 (think of these three 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 TBD slot in Pot 4 will be drawn as if it was an actual team. Once a new member actually joins Serie C and fills the opening we have, they will be placed into the TBD slot.

    The first group matches will open immediately following the draw. For any questions, just post over in the Cups Discussion thread.

    Final preparations for this season's Coppa Tradizione draw are being made, with 15 minutes until the start of the draw. As always, teams will be revealed twice at a time (or three for some of Pot 3, due to the need to draw three Serie C teams at one point). The draw will begin at 6:00 pm ET w/ the pot placement for each group.
