Inspired by the fantastic Avalon Hill Cup run by J. L. Robert (actual season: 2014) I've decided to start a cup in a similar vein with GMT games, probably the AH of our day.

The idea is to organize a polling contest between all the games of GMT using the format of one Football Cup as closely as possible. Polls take place instead of matches, pairing one game against the other and games are permanently assigned a real football team of that cup.

I will be modeling La Copa de GMT after the "Copa del Rey" (the principle is more or less the same: a knock-out tournament including teams up to regional level that sometimes brings some big upsets with it!)

I will be pairing GMT's games with teams of the Primera División, Segunda División A and B and some of the teams of Tercera División (regional leagues). For this I'll use BBG's rating and the final results for the Spanish League12/13.

In the semifinals the last four standing teams will be playing to get to the finals. Replays are possible (the final will be a one-round match, though)

Voting will continue until Friday (Early Saturday GMT, no pun intended).

I'll be posting the Geeklists roughly once a week. For announcement, lobbying and discussion go to the thread:

The Copa de GMT 2014 - Twilight Struggle wins the 2014 Cup!

IMPORTANT: vote for the game, for the team, against a game, against a team, against a theme against a color. It's up to you!
This competition should be as irrational as a Football competition!
