FIFA 11 Tournament: Round 1 Fixtures

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:

  1. Not questioning the reasoning or anything. But why have some lucky buggars got a free bypass? Would just like to know ;)

    • Its a 32 player tournament, it is the only way it can work. 16 fixtures in total when 10 are only possible due to numbers. 6 people are left to make the next round a full set of 16 players with 8 fixtures.

      Hope that makes sense. It is all random aswell. The 6 with byes are just lucky sods ;)

  2. Yay, got off to a shaky but good start (:

    • Yep he beat me, I was 1-0 up or the whole second half, looking comfortable then he scored a header in the last minute to go to Extra Time. I tookthe lead again but he got ANOTHER late equaliser before the lag got the better of both of us on pens, but he got the luck of the draw.

      Very enjoyable game and good luck with the rest of the tournament everyone.

      • I must say I consider myself pretty lucky :P

  3. Hi kitt_007, I’ve sent you a friend request on the PS3. We can organise our match on there.

  4. So I lost my game – but typical FIFA glichy madness; My ‘Leeds United’ squad seemed to be made up of a bunch of Korean guys and some players who just didn’t have names at all – mysterious strangers…rubbish strangers. Obviously Leeds have hit hard times again.

    • Yeah that was very strange. Youre more than welcome to a rematch with the real Leeds players if you wish.

      • I insist you replay the match with the real squad. A glitch is a glitch.
        As stated in the article, any concerns should be emailed to me. Its only by chance i have seen this. You have not emailed me the results either.

        This is not the place for results.

      • As stated in the article the email address for concerns and results is [email protected].

  5. Friend request sent to archer184 last night.

  6. Hi kitt_007, I’m online waiting to play our match.

    • Hope you guys can play tonight or something. He was busy yesterday.

      • EDIT: Something cropped up.

      • That’s ok, hopefully we can play later tonight.

  7. Friend request send to djhsecondnature. Bring it on!

    • Was waiting for a response in the TSA PMs. Game tonight?

  8. The mighty Southend just beat LA Galaxy in a hard fought 2-1 AET victory. but jammie_dodger it was a good game!

  9. Triple fails!!! I was whopped 3:0…well played kitt_007!

    • Oh really? Have to congratulate him then (:

  10. 5 minutes?! how awkward is that.
