FA Cup? Mickey Mouse competition...the real excitement kicks in here...
The Cup and Plate will progress as follows this year:-
The 10 losers of the below games in Round 1 go into the Plate whilst the 10 winners are joined by the 6 teams who had “byes” or set / asked questions last week to make up the last 16 for the Cup.
The 10 teams in the Plate have all played and lost one game and 2 of those teams have been drawn to set questions for the next round, along with a further 4 teams to act as Question Masters for all the games.
Just two of the 10 teams in the Plate need to be eliminated to leave us with the last 8 next time, so there are just 2 games between the remaining 4 teams in Plate Round 1.
After the next round we will be left with 8 teams in the Cup and 8 in the Plate.
Confused...you will be...here is the bottom line...
