The FUT Chamions Cup April 2019 will consist of three tournament stages – a Swiss-style Group Stage featuring 32 players (per platform), the single-elimination Playoffs featuring 16 players (per platform), and a Cross-Platform Grand Final that features the top player from each platform.
Swiss Style Group Stage:
The Group Stage will consist of 32 players from each platform, competing in a traditional Swiss format. In the Swiss format, each competitor does not play every other. Competitors meet in each round and are paired using a set of rules designed to ensure that each competitor plays opponents with an identical record, but not the same opponent more than once. Following the Group Stage, the top 16 players (per platform) will advance to the single-elimination Playoffs.
Visual Representation of Swiss-Style Group Stage
After the Swiss-style Group Stage, each playoff bracket will be seeded based on each player’s finishing record in the Swiss-style Group Stage, with those losing fewer matches receiving better seeds in the bracket with the following tiebreaker rules:
When records are equal, the following process will be used as the tiebreaker to determine seeding in the Playoff bracket:
If two teams finish with the same number of wins at the end of the Group Stage, the following tiebreaker rules will take effect in this order:
- Head-to-head record between the two teams
If the two teams did not play each other in the Group Stage or three or more teams finish with the same number of wins at the end of the Group Stage, the following tiebreaker rule will take effect in this order:
- Goal differential across all matches in the Group Stage (without penalties)
- Most goals scored across all matches in the Group Stage (without penalties)
- Random number generator
The Cross Platform Grand Final:
After the conclusion of each platform’s Playoffs, the winner from each bracket will advance to the Cross-Platform Grand Final. The Cross-Platform Grand Final will consist of a single two-legged match. One leg of the match will be played on the PlayStation 4, and the other leg will be played on the Xbox One.
