I did. Who? Not sure what teams you are seeing.
There won't be any DA teams. For the 05 age, those "Pre-Academy" teams that qualified by CRL or National cup will be replaced with their second teams(DPL).
Acceptance e-mails indicated they were planning on 16, but with 14 they could still pull of a "Premier League" format where everyone plays each other once, but signs seem to point to them going towards a group / elimination format which would be new.
With the group elimination format that seems they could possibly cut down on the number of games.
I liked the league format where everyone played everyone once. There are 11 play dates though, so you can either play groups and eliminate a day or if it’s a league format you’d need to add 2 days or double up on games on a couple of days.
I prefer they play everyone as well, CRL price remains high and one of the attractions was playing everyone and their being a league winner based on playing all the teams.
