Buckets Cup

The Buckets Cup will run over 6 (15 actually) consecutive (not quite) gameweeks, starting in gameweek 25, with the final taking place in gameweek 30+. Teams will be drawn randomly. You’re just going to have to trust me on that one. There will be a preliminary round in order to create a round of 32. Then a round of 16, quarter-final, semi final and final. Teams will go head to head based on their gameweek score. In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by goals scored in that gameweek, then by most bonus points in that gameweek, then by assist points scored in that gameweek. If we’re still even, it comes down to whoever scored the highest score in the previous round…followed by goals, bonus then assist points. If we’re still equal, which is unlikely, then you will have to fight each other.

The score that counts is the score you see on the league table at the end of the gameweek. This is the total score of your playing XI (or XV if you’re bench boosting), not taking into consideration any transfers you may have made. So, yes – you can – if you wish, take a 60 point hit. It’ll murder your league position, but may see you through to the next round.

We have 61 teams, so 58 teams will go into the preliminary round. 3 teams will receive a bye into the first round proper. Those 3 teams will be The Craggy Islanders, as last years winners, and the 2 highest scoring managers of the week up to and including gameweek 24. Any ties for highest scoring managers of the week will be settled as above – goals, bonus, assists, countback, fisticuffs. Understood?
