HUKD European Champions Trophy [FIFA 09 Xbox360]

Please post your Gamer Tags when declaring your interest!

Since being in Meadsys HUKD World Cup and seeing the enjoyment everyone got out of it, I thought Id start up my own little competition.

I am going to restrict it to 16 teams so that my format works out and it is full!

I am calling it the HUKD European Champions Trophy!

It is going to be 2 mini leagues with 8 teams in each. I am picking the teams that will myself and each player will be drawn 1 of these teams. All teams are at least 4.5 stars at time of writing this so everybody gets a decent team. It will work as follows

Round 1 - 2 x Mini Leagues of 8 Teams. Everybody plays each other once and top four from each league qualify for Round 2.

Round 2 Another League of 8 Teams (Top 4 from each league in Round 1) Everybody plays each other once and top four qualify for semis

Semi-Finals Not too sure how to do this yet either a mini league of 4 playing each other and top 2 teams go to final or 2 separate semi-finals (2 legged affair). Open to suggestions as to which way people would like to do it.

Final One off game to decide the HUKD European Champions Trophy.

Now the 16 teams that you could get drawn at random are 4 English - Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, 4 Italian Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Roma, 4 Spanish Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletico Madrid & Villareal, 2 French Lyon & Marseille and 2 German Bayern Munich & Werder Bremen.

Each group will consist of
2 English Teams
2 Spanish
2 Italian
1 German
1 French

Thought this would balance it out a bit. I will draw the groups shortly and post in the next post. I will not draw which team you have until I have all 16 players. I will then update this in post 2 and PM League details. Please select the correct team when you join the league, I dont want to have to remove anybody.

Please only commit to this if you are serious about playing all the games and will be available to do so. I will set a deadline for each round but will see how they go first and give plenty of notice so you get a chance to finish all games off.

Finally one of the leagues will show as 9 players as I will be in both to admin them, however I will only play games in league I am drawn in, so please ignore me if you are in that particular league.

Hope some people are up for this.

Kind Regards

Yeah no worries, I thought I'd keep it to 16 teams coz with a few other leagues knocking around people might not want to do them all. You've done a cracking job with the World Cup and inspired me to set one up. It better if a few people run leagues then its easier to always find a game etc

doesn't look like I'd have got 16 by tonight anyway!

good luck with this but i dont think anyone will stick at it - make it 6 max a group and people will keep at it but 24 games is too much

Btw mate if you want to join the Fifa 09 leagues theres about 3 spaces available in league 2

had to change the rules slightly as well, i didn't realise you couldn't set a league up with each team playing each other twice. You can only do 1,3,5 etc. So gonna go with 1 game against each oppenent. Make it a little quicker too.

I'm in please, GT Stobbsmiester

Count me in aswell please mate.
