Group Stage + Single Elimination
For ease of use all games will be played in “Kick Off” Mode.
Every player is allowed to pick their preferred team. Teams can be picked before the start of the game. Players are allowed to use multiple teams throughout the tournament as they please. It is accepted to have the same teams play against each other (e.g. Barcelona). In that case, the ‘away’ player will have to pick the Away Jersey for that team. In general, ‘away’ players are responsible for picking the jersey that does not resemble the home team jersey.
The scores will be reported to the score table by both players after the game.
Off Sides: On
Time/Score Display: On
Player Status Bar: Player Names
Camera: Dynamic or Tele
Players are only allowed to pause the game if their team is in possession of the ball.
Each player will play a minimum of 3 games. After the 3 games in the group stage, the top two players in each group will qualify for the single-elimination stage up to the final. The brackets in the single-elimination stage are not randomly seeded. If you came first in your group, you will play against a player who came second in his group, and vice versa. If you came first in group A, you will play the player who came 2nd in group B, etc.
If a player does not show for the game or forfeits during the game, he/she loses the game with the maximum score of 3-0.
Standings and Tie-breakers
It is the responsibility of the players to keep up with their team’s standings. Three points will be awarded for a win, one point for a tie and zero points for a loss in the group stage. In the event of ties in point standings, the following sequence will be used to determine who advances to the elimination stage, and who wins his group:
• Points earned from matches won or tied.
• Result of head to head game.
• Goal difference: Total net score for tournament games. Net score = goals scored, less goals scored against.
If two teams are still tied, a 12min (6min per half) match will be played to determine the winner.
After a tied game in knock-out stage, the game will go to overtime and then penalties to determine a winner.
