We made a special exception to the tie-breaker rule when it came to relegation. Both Roscola and I decided to sit out for the next phase for various reasons, giving Declan McCarthy and Grounderz who would have won via H2H another chance to compete in these leagues.
Of course, the trade-off was that we get to participate in the CL/Europa League 😎
Sadly it’s now time to say goodbye to those managers who won’t be joining us next season. These relegated managers are:
a) Bundesliga – Schalke 04(Bal4Tom), VfL Wolsburg(Nitin), Werder Bremen(Rick)

f) Serie-A – Juventus(Pratik), AC Milan (Milanista), Catnia (Djerbil)
For exceptional work and giving life to this competition, both Jkisthe1 and Milanista are also granted a spot in CL/Europa, despite being relegated.
This leaves a total of 21 spots left for the CL and Europa League still unoccupied. Relegated Managers will also be considered for these spots.
The main criteria for these spots is your contribution to the Uefa Council Leagues, and FFS. We will be looking for managers that will contribute to repeating the great atmosphere of last year’s CL and Europa through banter and pressers!
Accepted managers for season 2, feel free to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org, or via comments) if you have a particular team preference from the relegated teams in the league that you have been assigned. The new ROE managers can propose alternative team names if they wish to change to another European team not currently in any of the 6 leagues.
