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 22 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 2024 UEFA Champions League
...8 point bonus for a group stage berth** in the 2024 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 will lock Aug13 430a 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 6, 945a Pacific prior to the first kickoff.

UCL play will run through Jun 2023 and we will repick for Knockouts, starting Mar 2023.

Q2b UEFA Champions League Knockouts
(coming Feb 2023)

Q3 World Cup
There 32 teams divided into 8 groups of 4 teams in the World Cup. Each group plays round robin and the top two from each group (16 teams total) advance to elimination play. Those 16 teams play single game knockouts to determine the champion.

We have seeded the teams according to our magic sauce. You must pick 7 teams totalling 105 or more seed points.

Points:
...6pts: Group Play Win
...2pts: Group Play Draw
..13pts: Advance to Elimination Round
..10pts: Elimination Win

Championship Bonus:
..25pts for World Cup Championship
..15pts for World Cup Runner up
..10pts for 3rd place finish
...5pts for 4th place finish

Note: Altho the 3rd place (consolation) game will determine the final two championship bonuses, there will be no 'elimination win' points awarded for that game.

Picks lock at the kickoff of the first game: Sun Nov20, 8a Pacific
