Admission upon request

The "Coppa Oltremella" is a private Cup organised by the italian Federation "Oltremella". The Cup was initiated as a friendly Cup between managers from the region of Brescia, and is today open to managers from all over Italy. The Cup is played in the second half of every season, starting from week 8. The Cup has been played for 11 seasons so far. In order to maintain its private character, admission preference is nowadays given to teams that have covered themselves with glory in past editions.

History

Foundation The "Coppa Oltremella" (or "Coppa O!") was founded in March 2008 by andreben80, and played it's first edition from 15.4.2008. The initial editions comprised only directly connected managers, mostly from the district Torricella in Brescia. This regional extraction was seminal to the naming of the Cup: "oltre Mella" describes the districts of Brescia "on the other side of the river Mella". With the departure of some of the original founder-teams, the Cup opened admission to other teams from Brescia and later on to managers from all over Italy.
The competition mode: The first editions of the Coppa Oltremella (I, III-V) have been played by eight teams with direct elimination. The second and sixth edition (II, VI) saw a 16 team tournament with a group phase of 4 teams per group where a single team qualified for the semifinals – a modus that did not find much appreciation. Since the seventh (VII) edition, the Cup is played with 16 teams - a group phase of 4 teams per group with the two best teams from each group qualifying for the following eliminatory phase.

Cup Administration

Admission: Admission to the Cup is opened approximately 3-4 weeks before the begin of a new Cup, and starts with the creation of a private Cup on the Cupmanager website. The Opening of the new Cup edition is announced via a Newsletter from the Oltremella Federation, or via private HT-mails to interested teams by the Cup Organisers (usually trotti or krautboy). Teams can register for the current edition with their Cupmanager account until one week before the Begin of the Cup. One week before the start (Tuesday evening after the Week 7 Italian Cup Match), all registered teams are ranked by their internal cup ranking, and the best 16 teams are accepted to participate in the current edition.
Group phase: In order to generate groups of similar strenght and avoid that the strongest eliminate themselves already in the group phase, the initial groups are composed by a sorting proces. All accepted teams are sorted into 4 pools according to their Hattrick Cup Rank which, in contrast to the internal cup rank, reflects a teams league position and general strength. From each of the four pools, one team is drawn into every group. Matches of the group phase are played are played on neutral ground with normal rules, with matches between teams from different regions being played in an arena in a third region.
Eliminatory phase: In the eliminatory phase, again matches are played on neutral ground, but Cup rules are applied.
Internal cup ranking: The internal cup ranking attributes points according to the results a team achieves during its career in the Coppa Oltremella. For every match played, a team acquires 3 points for a victory or 1 point for a draw, whereas losses do not acredit points. 5 points are awarded for every qualification for a quarterfinal, 10 points for playing a semifinal and 15 point for reaching the final of an Cup edition. The winner of an Oltremella Cup receives an extra bonus of 25 points. Currently, the Cup Ranking is lead by Athletic UC with a record of 404 accumulated points (internal cup ranking).
Exclusion Giving walkovers is not accepted in the Coppa Oltremella, and leads to a direct exclusion from the current edition and future admissions to the cup
