The tournament will be run through this website: Inter-World Cup II
Each team will play a home and away series with each team in their group. (You will send and accept one challenge from each team in your group)
In order to advance to the Round of 16, you will have to finish in the top half of your group. 3 points will be awarded for a win, 1 for a tie. In the event that teams are tied, the following tie-breakers will be applied in order: goal differential, goals scored, head-to-head aggregate, time of possession from head-to-head aggregate
If the game has not been scheduled within a week of me setting the schedule (Group Stage should be scheduled by July 12th, however, because I'll be out of town anyway). The away team will receive a 3-0 victory as it will be assumed the home team did not send a challenge. However, if the home to has sent a challenge in a timely manner and the away team has not accepted (and I am informed of this), the home team will receive the 3-0 victory.
It is the responsibility of the home team to report match scores to malhits98. Please send the URL link to the game via site mail, so I can confirm the outcome.
Let me know if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. Good luck to all!
