ManagerLeague Christmas specials! <--Back
ManagerLeague Christmas specials!

It's December, a time for festive spirits, hymns, presents, and, needless to say, football and some huge cups in ManagerLeague!
We have decided to create some division-based cups this Christmas, so those nasty top teams can't push us out in the first round

These special cups will NOT be running during a weekend, but rather on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th of December.
To avoid running into sticky situations colliding with the League Cup finals and Department Cup finals and the playoff-matches, the times are also a little different.
There will be one cup per division, and the schedule looks like this:

5th and 6th division teams will have their fixtures drawn on Tuesday 25th at 16:00 CEST, and play matches every half hour from 16.30 and onwards.
1st to 4th division teams will have their fixtures drawn on Wednesday 26th at 16:00 CEST, and play matches every half hour from 16.30 and onwards.

Cup sizepic
Division 1: 128 teams
Division 2: 512 teams
Division 3: 1024 teams
Division 4: 2048 teams
Division 5: 2048 teams
Division 6: 2048 teams

We will expand the sizes if we see they fill up, but we know it's Christmas and that a lot of people might be away on vacation or simply to busy with their families and a hectic Christmas schedule.
Regardless of this, these will be some of the biggest cups we have ever held here!
It will also be a great chance to improve your team, make a lot of extra money, and make sure your players are all they can be in 2008!

The cups will NOT be credit-free, they will cost the regular 2 credits to join. After all, it's Christmas, and I should get something back from working during my Xmas Vacation

The cups will be created next week, so everyone will have 1 week to decide if they wish to join or not.

I hope to see a great turn-up for these cups, and that we will all have some extra fun at the end of the season.

The season-change will take place as usual on Thursday 27th, and the next season will start Monday 31st of December; No new years eve mercy!

Enjoy, have a great Xmas, and beware of The Spinners in the cup for Division 3!

Yours truly

pictureVery nice Spinner.

How bout a custom made Christmas tree trophy to each of the winners?

By : gloinNOT COOL   13:07 14/12 2007
pictureshould have been credit free....

By : SpinnerPrizes   13:12 14/12 2007
picturePrizes are, as always, dependant on how many will play.
But the bigger ones will give 50.000.000 to the winner and 25.000.000 to the runner-up.
The winner also gets 200 credits.

If you think it should have been credit-free, you also think I should work for free during XMas, and I have a problem with that

picturewhat i could tell? gr8!

By : Power_MaxWowoweeeee.....   03:44 15/12 2007
picturei like this event...
i just hope my team manages to go quarterfinals...
2 credits is nothing compare to 15 credits given for free every start of the season... and besides, player improvement is definitely a much better reward.

one suggestion...
if we are concerned to much of the fitness (i too am concerned) i suggest we put to tackle to soft...

other than this...

By : MalayedNice!   03:48 15/12 2007

By : ChairmanExtra Furniture Prices from Chairman   15:19 17/12 2007
pictureExtra Prices from Chairman: 50 credits to the ones who beats Fifth Season, The Spinners and The Heathens

The extra price on The Heathens is due to him beating me on both league matches this season, and most probably I can blame him for not promoting to 1. div!

Grate work guys.
Now, the game is more easy for new managers.
Prices for teamless players are resonable and anyone can buy 3 or 4 youngs Q71+ per season.
When I started, I also buy 4 young teamless players in my first week
