Is anyone interested in starting a World Cup style tournament this winter if the UWFFL doesn’t return. The plan is to have multiple owners contribute teams to a 16 to 32 team field (depending on how many teams are interested). Like the upcoming World Cup, there will be a group stage and knockout round. Depending on the number of owners, owners can contribute up to 4 of their teams regardless of league and each team will have identical stats in the tournament so anyone can win it. I’ll need at least three other owners to join to make this happen.

Yeah I`m interested in brushing the dust off of some of my UWFFL teams, so keep providing updates on what you come up with.

Im gonna wait till August 1st for all owners to apply for the tournament. Ideally we’d have a nice round number of owners that can fit into a 16 team tournament with no issues. Keep in mind that each team will have the same stats for the tournament and that you can have a maximum of 4 teams (and a minimum of 2) competing in the Canadian Bacon Invitational.

If you don’t have enough teams you can always make your own or borrow a team from me for the tournament (I’ll have two extra teams not participating). You will need at least two teams to participate.

I’m going to cap off the number of owners at 8, that way the Canadian Bacon Invitational can have a nice even number to work with for a 16 team tournament. There will be a vote on August 1st whether the CBI will be a 16 or 32 team tournament.

The selection show for groups will take place on Saturday August 20th. I’ll pick teams from one of those random pick wheels and ensure teams from the same ownership group are not placed in the same groups. I’ll record the selection show for transparency and upload it on the forum. Owners have until the 19th to decide which of their teams will participate in the CBI. The first game will take place on September 2nd.

I hope Colorado is one of the two/four because they look great.

We’re almost two months away from the deadline (August 1st) and it looks like we’ll be able to do 4 teams per owner for a 16 team tournament as we have four owners as of right now. For anyone else who wants to participate but has not signed up, in order to secure your spot in the Canadian Bacon Invitational you need to write a comment on this thread saying you’re interested, simply liking a post is not enough. No GSL teams are allowed to participate though games will take place at GSL stadiums. If you want to join but don’t have any UWFFL teams you’re welcome to create your own teams or I can loan you Chattanooga, Columbus, and/or Los Angeles for the duration of the CBI. If we end up with a number of owners that’s not so easy to work with (anything between four and eight) we’ll figure something out.

As a special thanks to Curtis and the Toronto Terror for beating the LA Express and thus securing the 1 seed for the St Louis Brewers (as well as the fact that he was the first to express interest in this tournament) the Rogers Centre will host the Canadian Bacon Invitational championship game. Charlotte and Miami will host both semifinal games.

I've got plenty of UWFFL teams just sitting around ready to play, so I'll join.
Once you've got a final limit on teams per owner, let me know, and I'll give you my top teams to compete.

The Canadian Bacon Invitational would like to invite 92Mafia to fill out one of the two final spots since he helped design the Dallas Outlaws uniforms. I will also allow GSL teams to participate for owners who only have one UWFFL team, for example if Austin only had one UWFFL team he’d be allowed to bring the Las Vegas Outlaws on board.

The last bit Canadian Bacon Invitation news for a while:
-First off, as a reminder to anyone interested, you have until August 1st to apply for a spot in the tournament (92Mafia has an invite but if two people show interest beforehand the invitation is gone)

-Next, if you’re creating a team you have until Sunday August 14th to have team designs up. Everyone else has to have their teams chosen by Sunday August 7th. Previously I said that you had until the 19th but that’s been changed.

-Finally, I’ve settled on 16 teams as the final number as this is the first time I do something like this and I want to start small so there won’t be a vote for a 32 team field.

Timeline
-August 1st: deadline for all 8 owners to apply
-August 7th: deadline for teams to be selected
-August 14th: deadline for created teams designs
-August 20th: drawing for the group stage (will take place before Super Cup II)
-September 2nd: beginning of the tournament

I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that I have selected the Sacramento Scorpions and New Orleans Lions to be my two teams for the tournament.

Ok I`m in sounds good. I have a load of UWFFL teams ready to go , so is the quota 2 teams each ? Any geographical restrictions ( east, west, 1 in each ? )

Since the tournament takes place at GSL stadiums it doesn’t matter where the two teams are located

We’re only 6 owners as of now and the field is 16 which means it’s 2 teams per owner unless we end up with less than 8 owners then someone can have more than 2 (Austin is going to have dibs on sending a third team and then I’ll randomly select someone else who isn’t me to have a third team if it comes to that)

I did a couple of tweeks on the uniforms for the Drive and Rattlers. Deepened the colors a bit, Removed the respective UWFFL patches, and put them in the
"SFCOM" style template

I like them though the Motor City one looks too Chicago Bears for Detroit haha (still very nice though). The tournament will use the GSL template for consistency but what you’ve done is pretty great.

Yea I went far different than the norm for Detroit. (Honoliulu Blue and Siver is already taken) ;-) But Navy and White matches the Tiger's And the red is a tip of the hat to the Red Wings! So I went that way. Perhaps stripes on the helmet to make it less "Chicagoy" LOL
