World League 2019
FootySimulator - World League of Football Introduction

The World League is the successor competition to the Davis Cup European Zone.

Divisions 1 and 2 from the 2018 season have each been cut from 16 teams to 12. This has allowed for a new Division 3 consisting of 8 teams. The old Divisions 3 to 6 become Divisions 4 to 7. There is also a knockout competition for non-league teams bidding to reach Division 7.

Format. The top 2 divisions consist of 12 teams. Each division is divided into 2 groups of 6 teams.
Divisions 3 to 6 are single groups of 8 teams each. In every division or group teams play each other home and away using the best of 3 format. In divisions 1 and 2, the top 2 from each conference play-off in knockout games to determine championships and promotion while the bottom 2 in each group of division 2 play off to determine relegation. In divisions 3 to 7, one team is automatically promoted, one team is automatically relegated and the teams finishing in 2nd and 7th places play-off with teams in the adjacent divisions. The exception to this is that 2 teams are promoted automatically from Division 3.
