Competition involves at least one club from every nation of the world, 4 from the top nations of each continent, 2 from the less reputable nations and then 1 from the even less reputable nations.
348 teams total. 4 qualifying rounds with 300 teams starting, 24 being added for the second, 11 for the third, 11 for the fourth and then 2 lucky teams making it straight into the first round proper. All draws are random, no seeding. Qualifying rounds will be a single leg, 90 minutes then penalties. Qualifying takes place in the UCL dead month of January to minimize conflict.
After the first round, there is a group stage of 4 groups of 4 teams, everyone plays each other team in their group once, top 2 teams from each group proceed. These games take place between late January and late April, though in testing it generally concluded in March
There is a break for summer, to avoid conflict with international tourneys.
we return for the Quarters after the break, then the semis and the final itself take place, giving an eventual winner. These final games are 90 minutes, if still tied it will be decided by a golden goal.
The competition rep has been raised to 200 and significant prize money has been added at each stage, with the first qualifier bagging the winner a cool 500k (GBP) and the loser 250k all the way up to the grand final having a jackpot of 36 million.
Sub rules are 6 from 12

The aim is to add a bit more of a challenge to the CWC whilst also making it interesting for teams outside of the top nations. I hope you all enjoy.
