Its time to lace up your boots ladies and gentlemen. The FIFA 11 tournament is a go and some very interesting fixtures have been drawn up for those that entered. My thanks go out to all the competitors for such a varied set of team choices making my job much easier than it could have been.
We have a total of 26 entries which for the first round means 6 of you will automatically go through to the next rounds draw. The remaining 20 will be battling it out in a 1 vs 1 single match with a few minor rules to follow:
- If any competitor disconnects in the second half of the game they automatically forfeit the match.
- If there is any more than one disconnect from a single competitor at any time that person automatically forfeits the match.
- No Virtual Pros or created players are allowed.
- Matches are to be 5 minute halves
- If after 90 mins the match is drawn Extra Time is to be played
- If Extra Time results in a draw then penalties are played to decide the match
Now that the rules are out of the way we move onto the fixtures themselves. PSN IDs are in brackets where they differ from TSA counterparts and team selections are in italics:
