Cups

Here's a full description of the Cups that are up for grabs in this season's MSFFL. To view each cup in detail just follow the links on the left

The Mickey Mouse Cup
This is the first cup competition that everyone will be entered into based on the FA Cup so basically itís a straight knockout on a home and away basis until the semi-finals and final. The initial draw for the 1st Round will take place at the conclusion of week 3, and will be posted on the website, subsequent rounds will be drawn immediately after the conclusion of each round. All the draws are randomly generated by a computer and ties will be played on the given date with a week running from Tuesday through to the following Monday. Your teamís total for that week will be compared against your opponent and the one with the highest progresses to the next round. In the case of a drawn tie please refer to the Penalty Shoot-Out section later in this page.

The prizes given out in this will be for the Winners and Runners Up so just check here for the
prizes and here for the dates of each round.


The Grampians League Trophy
This is the TOP cup competition on offer and is a Champions League based competition therefore you play in 8 Groups of 4 teams drawn at random after week 3 and on completion of any Qualifying Round required. This will be posted on the website, subsequent rounds will be drawn immediately after the conclusion of each previous one. Each team will play each other twice, home and away, getting 3 points for a win and one point each for a draw. Scoring system is exactly the same as the other cups so the team with the highest points total for any given week will be declared the winner. The next stage is also a Group Stage where the top two from the initial Group Stage qualify and the remaining teams are dropped into the New-Ropey Cup, here it will be 4 groups of 4 teams. For Knockout games all teams are drawn as Group Winners against Group Runners Up in two-legged ties where away points count double should the tie be a draw. All eliminated teams in the Group stages and Qualifying Round will be automatically dropped into the back-up competition (The New-Ropey Cup) In the case of a drawn tie, where away points cannot separate the teams, please refer to the Penalty Shoot-Out section later in this page.

The prizes given out in this will be for the Winners and Runners Up so just check here for the prizes and here for the dates of each round.
 

The New-Ropey Cup
This competition is basically for all the early round eliminated clubs from the Grampians League Trophy to give them all a cup interest for the remainder of the season. It will consist of a Qualifying Round which will be drawn at the conclusion of week 25, and will be posted on the website; subsequent rounds will be drawn immediately after the conclusion of each previous round. Teams will compete in further rounds up to and including the final on a two-legged basis where again the away points count double in the event of a drawn tie. All draws are randomly selected by computer with the draw dates being posted before the commencement of the competition. The prizes for this one reflect the fact it is essentially an eliminated cup competition and is a lot lower than the main cup. In the case of a drawn tie, where away points cannot separate the teams, please refer to the Penalty Shoot-Out section later in this page.

Penalty Shoot-Out
This will only come into effect if cup ties between two teams are level, and the away points rule has also failed to separate them to help choose who progresses. Essentially both the teams front five players, numbers 7-11 in the line up, count in the penalty shoot-out with the highest combined total from that week taking the match. If they are still level then it goes to sudden death where each teamís highest point scorer for that week is pitched against each other and so on until they can be separated. Should none of the above separate them then a winner will be selected at random by the computer.
