There are a few changes to this game compare to years past:
- All managers must submit one 11-man team for each round of games in the group stage within a 4-4-2 formation. This is the same for everyone, you won’t be able to opt for three strikers or five defenders; it’s a level playing field. Every nation will play three games in the group stage in rotation, starting on June 8, and you submit a team for each one of the three rounds.
- Managers then have the chance to submit a new team for the quarterfinals, and another for a combined semifinals and final round of fixtures.
- The Promotion will be broken down in to five (5) “Rounds”:
Round 1: Group Stage 1 (June 8-10)
Round 2: Group Stage 2 (June 12-14)
Round 3: Group Stage 3 (June 16-18)
Round 4: Quarter-finals (June 21-24)
Round 5: Semi-finals + Final (June 27-July 1)
