Davis Cup 2014
FootySimulator - Davis Cup of Football Introduction
Introduction

Instead of long winded qualification competitions and tournaments, the Davis Cup of Football is a way to classify the top teams in each continent or continental group.

Format. The top 16 teams in each continent or continental group are paired into 8 head to head ties by a seeded draw. The eight winning teams progress to the quarter-finals, then semis, and final. The eight losing teams are paired with each other and the losers of those matches go into a promotion/relegation play-off with a team from the division below them.

Format of the ties. Teams play home and away and the team with the higher aggregate score progresses. In the event a tie is level on aggregate, away goals do not count. Instead a deciding third match shall be played on a neutral ground. This deciding match will be played to next goal wins. All of these ties are played using FootySimulator's middle result of 5 simulation level.

For the first season, the Davis Cup of Football has a European edition and an Americas edition featuring teams from both North and South America. In each case, the top 8 teams in the FootySimulator rankings qualify as of right and are seeded. Teams 9-24 take part in a qualifying competition for the other 8 berths. Teams 9-16 are seeded.
