The Buckets Cup will run over six consecutive gameweeks, starting in gameweek 26 on the 3rd February, through to gameweek 31 on the 17th March. 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, which is unlikely, then you will have to fight each other.

We have 50 teams, so 36 teams will go into the preliminary round. 14 teams will receive a bye into the first round proper. Those 14 teams will be Shoelace Untied, as last years winners, and the 13 highest scoring managers of the week up to and including gameweek 25. If there are less than 13 managers of the week then the difference will be made up by the teams occupying the top positions in the league at the end of gameweek 25. Understood?

Gameweek 27 – Round One

Gameweek 28 – Round Two
