Bracketology, Week #3

by Joe Meyer

       As the cup enters Week #4, "Bracketology" Lower League eCup style brings you an inside look on where each team stands heading into the final weeks of the group stage.

       Results through Sunday, April 19th were used for this ranking. As with the main knockout stage, the top 16 players/clubs receive byes into the second round. All first round matchups are determined by random draw.

       In addition to the brackets, which are available on Twitter (@lowerleagueEcup), below is a detailed version of where each team stands heading into this week. Teams are separated into the following categories...

  • Qualified - Qualified for the knockout stage.

  • On Track - Keep up the pace, and you're in.

  • On the Bubble - Last two weeks will be crucial, qualification or elimination will come down to the wire.

  • Must Win - A loss this week could eliminate the player before the next round.

  • Eliminated - Mathematically impossible to advance to the knockout stage.
