Summer League Playoff Structure

Here is your 2014 Capital Subaru Playoff Structure – all going down on Saturday, August 23th at Fieldian’s and Ayre Athletic Grounds (for now).

There will be 4 playoff divisions:

Top 4 teams play for Flaherty Cup (Division 1)
Teams 5-12 play for Division 2 Title
Teams 13-20 play for Division 3 Title
Teams 21-28 play for Division 4 Title

– All teams get 2 guaranteed games, some will have 3 depending on performance
– For Division 1 – 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 with winners playing each other for championship and losers playing for 3rd place.
– For Divisions 2, 3 & 4 – 8 team single elimination bracket with losers playing consolation games

I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS!!

Q: How did you guys decide the structure?
A: Our League Committee sits down together and looks at all the factors in play. These include ensuring everyone gets 2 games, level of competition, scheduling, field availability, avoiding back-to-back games, avoiding too many games in the day – and the big one that we’ve heard you loud and clear over – ensuring playoffs take place in one day. The Committee discussed a number of scenarios, and then finally put forward a recommendation to the Board.

Q: At the end of the Regular Season, do teams move up/down a tier.
A: Yes. There will be one more movement at the end of this round.

Q: How many teams do we have this year?
A: We have 28 of 30 teams playing in the playoffs this year!

Q: Why did you separate Div 1 into  a smaller group?
A: This is never an easy decision, as we know people have a lot of opinions on it. In the end, it came down to two things… it provided the most number of teams with a level of competition that more closely aligned with their skill level and the level they have faced all year. And, second, it avoided a system of numerous bys in various divisions. This ensured a smoother and easier playoff day for all involved.

Q: So, who is the overall winner?
A: Well, using our ladder structure, the top team in our league will be the overall winner and take home the Flaherty Cup. However, we’ll also have some fun trophies for Divisions 2,3 and 4.

Q: How awesome is playoff day going to be?
A: Awesomeness level will be high. #IwishwehadatshirtgunbutKarensaidno

Q: If my team loses a game, are we done?
A: If you lose your first game, you are out of contention for the trophy of your respective division; however, you will get to play again in a consolation game! Everyone is guaranteed at least 2 games!

Q: I want to watch the finals, will you be posting the schedule?
A: Stay tuned to our website to get the full playoff details/schedules!

Subbing for Summer! (2014)

To help meet subbing demands, players can now sub 6 games in a season. But, a few things to also remember:

– All general subbing rules still apply: https://www.milezeroultimate.com/?page_id=250
– You can still only sub 1 playoff game, and it is included in your 6 total.
– If you are having major playoff issues with players, please contact MZU and we will address it on a case-by-case basis.

Tiebreaker Questions

We had announced a while back in February that we were ditching Spirit as a tiebreaker, but we didn’t fully outline the rules… so, here is the order we’ll follow (as outlined on Zuluru too!).

1) Head-to-Head. If the teams who are tied have played each other, the team who won that game wins the tiebreaker.
2) Head-to-Head Plus-Minus. This will not apply to our Summer League as this would only be relevant for teams that have played each other more than once and split those games. For example if two teams played each other twice and each won a game, this would be used to break the tie. Teams will never play each other more than once in a single round.
3) Plus-Minus. This will be used if teams have played each other and tied, OR have not played each other at all. The total plus-minus for the round will be used and the team with the higher number wins the tiebreaker.
4) 4th Tiebreaker is Goals For. This will be used if all of the conditions exist to go to plus-minus, AND the teams in question have the exact same plus-minus rating. Then the team with the most goals scored in the round wins the tiebreaker.
