When possible we will have multiple divisions (premier, championship, and select). Depending on the number of teams accepted, the divisions will be grouped as follows:
Division of 14: Two groups of four teams and two groups of three teams. The two groups of three teams play a cross over game. Top teams in each of the four groups qualify for semi-finals.
Division of 12: Three groups of four teams. Top team from each group and the next best wild card team from the combined three groups advance to semi-finals. Tie breaker also used when determining wild card team in division of 12.
Division of 10: One group of four, two groups of three. Top team from each group and the next best wild card team from the combined three groups advance to semi-finals. Tie breaker also used when determining wild card team in a division of 10.
Division of 8: Two groups of four. Each team will play three games. Winners of each group will advance to the Championship.
Division of 6: Two groups of three teams. Each team will play two games within the group and then all teams will be seeded within their group, 1st, 2nd, 3rd. 1st Group A will play 2nd Group B and 1st Group B will play 2nd Group A in the semi-finals. The 3rd place teams from each group will play each other in the consolation game. The winners of the semi-finals will play in the championship game.
Division of 5: One group of five teams. Each team will play a four game round robin schedule. Best team after the four games is the champion.
Division of 4: One group of four teams. Each team will play a three game round robin schedule. The first and second place teams will play for the division championship.
In divisions with a Wild Card the following example will be used to determine Semi-Final placement:
1st Group A vs 1st Group B | 1st Group C vs Wild Card
Unless Wild Card winner comes from Group C, which in that case:
1st Group A vs 1st Group C | 1st Group B vs Wild Card
FIFA rules apply to all games unless otherwise specified.
