RULES: SOCCER

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).

Your 8 teams will earn points as follows:
...8pts: Group Stage win
...3pts: Group Stage draw
..12pts: Advance to knockouts
...8pts: Knockout round victory *
..12pts: Advance to final
..20pts: Champions League Title

* This means your team advances to the next round of knockouts. Winning one leg (game) of a knockout round does not guarantee advancing and does not earn points

Picks will lock Sep 14, 945a Pacific prior to the first kickoff.

Play will run through May28, 2022 and we will repick for Knockouts, starting Feb16, 2022.

Q2b UEFA Champions League Knockouts
16 teams remain alive in the UCL. Knockouts will run from Feb15 thru May28, with the teams playing 2-leg knockouts for three rounds and then a single-game Championship at a neutral site (St Petersburg). We have seeded the teams, and you must select 4 teams totaling at most 22 seed points.

Your 4 teams will earn points as follows:
...5pts: Game Victory
...1pt: Game Tie
...3pts: Round Advance*
...7pts: Finals Berth
..15pts: Championship

Note that teams will play 2 games vs the same opponent in each of the first three rounds and our scoring reflects the difference between game results and round results.

* Championship game does count as a game victory, but does not count as a round advance.

Final note - the UCL teams are not drawn into a bracket; once the winners of each round have been determined, there will be a draw to determine the matchups of the next round. We feel your pain over the chaotic aspect this adds to making picks.

Picks will lock at the first knockout kickoff: Tue Feb15 12n Pacific

EAST
1 New England

5 Atlanta
6 Orlando City
7 NY Red Bulls

WEST
1 Colorado
2 Seattle
3 Sporting KC

..12pts: Playoff Win
..10pts: Conference Finals berth
..10pts: Conference Title (Championship berth)
..20pts: MLS Championship

Picks lock Sat Nov20 1130a Pacific, before first kickoff.
