FM Scout Champions Cup

As the FM Scout Cup did not run earlier last year, I, and a few others, felt it was needed again. Now, we have the solution. The FM Scout Champions Cup. The FM Scout Champions cup will run in the same way as the FM Scout Cup, but with less teams, and the European Championships. The 16 participants would be split into groups of 4.

Entry has now shut, and the cup is soon to get underway. However, more information, such as prizes and cup details can be found on the entry topic here.

The Groups

We will have 16 teams spread into 4 groups and you will play everyone one. This means you will get to play at least 3 games with your team, and more if you qualify. Games will be played one round at a time. All games must be finished in the first round before the next set of games start.

The top two in each group will go through, and a further draw will then take place, totally at random. All knockout games will include two legs, each team playing one of the two legs at their home ground. The final will be played at a neutral stadium, decided in a public vote that will occur later on, around the time of the semi finals.

Group A:

Group B:

Group C:

The Structure

You will have seen this before, but we may need to run over it again. The structure will run in the same way as the UEFA Champions League, but with one fixture against each team in the group stages rather than two. Because of this, the member with the most forum thanks will get the home advantage. If equal, the member with the most forum posts will take the home advantage.

Group Stages
- Each team would play each other once.
- Every match is just 90 minutes.
- Win = 3 points. Draw = 1 point. Defeat = 0 points.
- Points decide the groups, then goal difference, then goals scored, then result between teams.

Knockout Stages
- Two legs, one home and one away fixture.
- An aggregate result will decide the winner.
- Away goals will be used if needed.
- Extra time and penalties will be used if still needed.

The Final
- One fixture to decide the winner.
- The game played at a neutral ground, decided by myself.
- Extra time and penalties if needed.

The Teams

You have already selected your team to use which is posted below. You cannot change teams now, and you will need to export this very soon. There will be a video below showing how if you don’t know already. For your team, you will export the players, meaning you get all new signings in the tournament. You must keep with this team throughout, but can change the line-up as frequently as you want.
  • Tellak - FC Viitorul Constanta
  • Nick – Tottenham Hotspur
  • Ziechael – Leeds United
  • Joethequin – Chelsea FC
  • Rablador – Tottenham Hotspur
  • The Madridista – Chelsea
  • JasonVilla – Aston Villa
  • Managerhall – Chelsea FC
  • RandydeB – Manchester United
  • MarkKolatowicz – Chelsea FC
  • Nathaniel – Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Michael – Schalke/Rangers
  • K1rups – Olympique Lyonnais
  • Kane – Manchester United
  • Van Persie – Borussia Dortmund
  • Kamotero – Swansea City
To find out how to export your team, check out the video below:

The Games

You will play one game a week. I will release the fixtures every Sunday night, and you have until the following Sunday to play the game. You will need to talk to the other member to find out when you are playing. Then, you will set up a network game. You just play once, and then the HOME team will take screenshots. They will need to screenshot the overview of the match, and player stats. If they can’t, it is down to the away team, and if they can’t, message me. I may ask to record your game if a big one and I have the time, but details will come later if that will happen.

Due to the rules and the way this cup will be played, we can’t just have one network game going, so I will keep all the data and records of the matches, and work out the tables etc. This way, matches can be played easily, and much more information can be included, with a better format. This video should help show you how to set up a game if you don’t know, but if it doesn’t help, message me!

Group Stage: Round One

The first round of fixtures have now been announced. The playing of the fixtures will begin on the week commencing the 8th July. You have the read of the week, until Sunday 14th to contact your opponent, play the game, and get the screenshots, shown in the above post. If for some reason (although we really hope not), you can't play the game for that week, your opponent will get an automatic 3-0 win. If you do not get in contact with us about the game in that week, you will get an automatic 3-0 loss, with your opponent picking 3 points. We need this to run smoothly, so require a game played a week.

The Fixtures

Despite one player being listed first, the home team will be the player with the most forum THANKS. You will need to check between yourselves.

Once the game is played, please message me with the result and screenshots ASAP!

Get playing now!
