Rules Update and Quarter-Finals Prediction Form Now Available

August 8, 2020

UEFA Champions League

Welcome back to our game! I hope players and their families have stayed healthy to date during the pandemic.

The Champions League was obviously not unaffected by events. UEFA has responded by changing the competition format for the Quarter-finals and Semi-Finals rounds from two legs to a single game for each. I have modified the Rules for our game, accordingly, applying the point scheme that should be familiar to players of the FIFA World Cup game.

The Quarter-Finals Prediction Form can be found on the Prediction Challenges! web site. As games will be played one per day starting Wednesday, predictions are due Tuesday, August 11 by the end of the day.

Good luck!
