1) Every player in the history of football is eligible in this draft. 2) Each team will have 12 hours to pick a player. After that the turn will be passed to the next player. Please send a PM to the manager in line to inform that it's his/her turn. 3) Each team will have 13 players to pick including 1 goalkeeper. 4) A team has an option to pick one player from the losing team 5) Each player will be judged on it's peak. 6) This will be a 8 player competition with the games starting from QF to SF and then the final. 7) Snake draft will be used. Down, up, down etc.
Draft order will be decided by me from randomizer.org
Once the draft is complete, match threads will be started where each manager's pitch is posted with their match team and tactics. It doesn't have to be much, but just so the voters get an idea of how you will play your team.
Each game will last for 24 hours. If the voting has been split I will simply draw lots.
