Perring Cup draw is out

Posted by Pelicans FC - Manager at Oct 11, 2011 7:37AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

The Perrin Cup draw was released late last night. Pelicans FC Blue is matched up against second division side Inter Atlanta FC, Pelicans FC White is matched up against new league joiners Estudiantes from the 3rd division and Pelicans FC Black draws Sting Gold from the first division. Should be exciting games all around. The match times are not set yet, but the first round will be played on 11/6.

Last year the Pelicans Football Club saw two of the clubs three teams advance to the quarterfinals. Let’s see if the club can surpass that this season!

About the Perrin Cup: The Perrin Cup is named for Chris Perrin a former player, manager and officer of the League who died of cancer in the late 80’s. The Perrin cup is an intra-league knockout style tournament which can provide a team anywhere from one to six additional games of play. The Cup is played throughout the length of the season and is a single-elimination format. Teams are drawn in a double-blind method with the only stipulation being the Division 1 teams will not meet in the first round. Once listed on a line up sheet, players are bound to that team only for the remainder of the Cup. Preliminary round games ending in ties will go straight to penalty kicks to determine advancement.
