    The First Annual WC Fantrax Association Cup

    Welcome to the first annual WC Fantrax Association Cup(or FA Cup)! What does this mean for you the managers? Not much, actually, your team will be competiting on two different fronts, but no reason to worry about match fitness for your players, they can participate in your league match and your cup match and still be fit for the next week. Unforuntately there will be duplicate players going against each other in this Cup, so Aguero could be the striker for both teams, but we'll survive I'm sure.


    With 24 teams in the WC Fantrax League we'll have to do with 8 byes in the first round, lucky for us there is 8 teams in the Premier League so the boys in the PL get to take the first round off. Nash has graciously offered to do the draw for this, so the 16 teams that don't have byes will be facing off in the first round of the Cup.


    This will be a 2-legged cup, with away points being the deciding factor if the unlikely event of a tie happens. With 5 Total Rounds that means nine gameweeks(the final isn't two-legged), which nine gameweeks are they? Here they are....


    Round 1 - Leg 1 - Gameweek 3
    Round 1 - Leg 2 - Gameweek 5
    Round 2 - Leg 1 - Gameweek 9
    Round 2 - Leg 2 - Gameweek 11
    Quarters - Leg 1 - Gameweek 16
    Quarters - Leg 2 - Gameweek 18
    Semis - Leg 1 - Gameweek 24
    Semis - Leg 2 - Gameweek 26
    Finals - Gameweek 33


    I'll be compiling the points for the gameweeks from your league scores to get the results for these matches. Have any questions, comments, or improvements? Let me know and we'll take them under consideration. I also may or may not organize a prize with Nash for the winner of the first WC Fantrax Association Cup. Good luck, and have fun!

    Yes that's right, another front for me to lose to PS.

    Should be a bit of fun! A lot of thanks to SS, great idea!

    Quality idea this Mike, love it!

    Feel like a lot of luck will be needed to win this though as can't really plan long-term like the league/playoffs format.

    And he scores goals...!

    Yeah this is awesome, adds a bit of competition between the leagues as well which is a cool thing.

    Beating Nash would be a highlight

    This is a cool idea but like the big teams it will certainly play second fiddle to the league for me.

    Good luck all

    Very good idea Mike, clever name too!

    Hope we don't get an all Sykotic final first year.

    Well how about as a prize if one of the teams from league 1 and 2 is a promotion spot to the league above for the following season? And if its a team from the premier, 1st pick in the draft the following season?

    I don't think the winner of the cup should get promoted in any way, shape or fashion. They only need to win 8-9 matches compared to 36 gameweeks in the league.

    I agree with Order, it also makes it unfair on the team they end up replacing.

    Re: The First Annual WC Fantrax Association Cup

    Seems like the lower divs will be at an advantage because there are some weaker players in those leagues, meaning the more clued up ones could get better all-round teams in the draft.

    Still a good idea though, don't make me play Jon please, I don't wanna get tanked again.

    The Draw for Round 1! (Nash was supposed to do it, but he hasn't been answering me, so I'm gonna do it via a randomizer)
