2020 Event Summary: Soccer

Status: Locked

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 UEFA Champions League
...8 point bonus for a group stage berth** in the 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).


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, Liverpool 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  

* Every team will play one group stage game this week (Oct 20-21) prior to picks locking.  If a team you pick wins or draws on Oct 20-21, you will earn those points. 

** 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 Oct 27th 10a Pacific prior to the first kickoff.

Q2b UEFA Champions League Knockouts
16 teams remain alive in the UCL. Knockouts will run from Feb16 thru May29, with the teams playing 2-leg knockouts for three rounds and then a single-game Championship at a neutral site (Istanbul). We have seeded the teams, and you must select 4 teams totaling at least 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: Feb16 1205n Pacific

Q3 MLS Playoffs
18 teams have been seeded from 1 to 8 in the East and West conferences:

EAST
1 Philadelphia
2 Toronto FC
3 Columbus
4 Orlando
5 NYCFC
6 NY Red Bulls
7 Nashville / Miami
8 New England / Montreal

WEST
1 Sporting KC
2 Seattle
3 Portland
4 Minnesota
5 Colorado
6 FC Dallas
7 LAFC
8 San Jose

Note that the 7 and 8 seeds in the East will be determined by play-in games. If Miami upsets Nashville, they will play the 1seed, but we are defining the winner of that game the 7seed regardless. Similarly, the winner of New England vs Montreal will be the 8seed, even if they end up playing the 2seed due to a Miami upset. These play-in games will NOT earn points and picks will not be due until after the play-in games have been played.

Your job is to pick 5 teams totalling 17 a minimum of 17 seed points. Points will be earned as follows:
..15pts: Playoff Win*
..10pts: Conference Finals berth
..10pts: Conference Title (Championship berth)
..20pts: MLS Championship

* Play-in games for the East 7 and 8 seeds do not count

Picks lock ~Nov21 before first kickoff.
