Q1 English Premier League

The EPL is comprised of 20 teams; these teams have been seeded and you must select five teams totaling no more than 21 seed points. The EPL season is a home-and-home round robin; each team will play 38 games. There are no playoffs altho 5-6 teams will receive berths in the UEFA Champions League or the Europa League at the conclusion of the season. Furthermore, 3 teams will be relegated to the EFL Championship.

Your five teams will earn points as follows:
...5 points for every EPL* win
...1 point for every EPL* draw
..20 point bonus for the champion
..15 point bonus for a group stage berth** in the 2023 UEFA Champions League
...8 point bonus for a group stage berth** in the 2023 Europa League
..10 point penalty for any team that is relegated

* During the EPL season, teams will play friendlies and in tournaments; points are not awarded for those wins/draws

** Points are only awarded for a group stage berth in either the UCL or UEL (a qualifying round berth earns no points)

Picks are not due until after each team plays one game. Picks lock Aug21 4a Pacific.

Q2a UEFA Champions League - Group Stage
There are 32 teams in the Group Stage. We have divided them into 4 tiers; you must pick 2 teams from each tier (restriction: you may only pick one of Bayern Munich, ManCity, PSG, Chelsea from Tier1).

...8pts: Group Stage win
...3pts: Group Stage draw
..12pts: Advance to knockouts
