The giants of Premier 2, Anfield Aces, and current holders of the Apex Champions League, have been knocked out in the initial group stages of the compeitition, after only ending up in a poor 3rd position in Group 19, and couldn't even qualify as a "wildcard" entry. A very mediocre campaign in a group from which they should have progressed, they will be bitterly disappointed.
But CONGRATULATIONS to the 52 teams who did qualify automatically from the group stage and also to the lucky "wildcard" teams (Sussex Select, LFC Continental, Darkvale, Rush Green City, Clachnacudden, Fairfield FC, Dover Bombers, Stanion Villa, Crispy Duck Vindaloo, Club Rangers, Belfast Bombers, Byron Park FC of P3) who were the 12 best 3rd-placed teams.
The draw for Round Two is as follows below. Group winners have not been drawn against each other, neither have wildcards.
The draw is also pre-determined from now on, e.g. the winners from 'A' will play the winners from 'B', winners from 'C' will play winners from 'D' and so on . . .
Good luck! The deadline for the 1st-leg matches is TUESDAY 23RD NOVEMBER, so please ensure your teamsheet gets to us by that date. Use any column on your teamsheet for your line-up and tactics.

Yes, at last, the draw for this year's Champions League groups has been made and is listed below. The clubs which have entered will be receiving their teamsheets very soon and the deadline for getting your tactics back to us is TUE 7th SEPTEMBER and the games will take place during that week. We had a very good number of entrants again and this year's championships look set to be exciting as ever.

Remember, the top 2 from each group will progress to the knockout stages, as well as the next 12 best 3rd-placed teams from any group, so there's plenty to play for.

OFFENCE "A": 4-4-2, 5-4-1, 4-5-1, 5-3-2, 5-2-3

OFFENCE "B": 3-4-3, 4-3-3, 4-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-2-4, 5-2-3, 4-5-1, 5-3-2
