    I propose we draft a team of eleven players from the current (as of 1/4/2019) members of the European Union.:D (players who have been capped by any of these nations).

    To clarify that is :

    Countries
    Austria
    Italy
    Belgium
    Latvia
    Bulgaria
    Lithuania
    Croatia
    Luxembourg
    Cyprus
    Malta
    Czechia
    Netherlands
    Denmark
    Poland
    Estonia
    Portugal
    Finland
    Romania
    France
    Slovakia
    Germany
    Slovenia
    Greece
    Spain
    Hungary
    Sweden
    Ireland
    United Kingdom

    For the purposes of this draft Yugoslavia will not count but players who played for Slovenia or Croatia will.

    This will be a bidding draft based upon categories that I will post after each bidding round has finished. You then send me your bid via PM.

    Everyone gets a budget of £700m. (if a bid exceeds budget it will be rejected and the next highest bidder receive the player)

    Players values are based on number of caps. 1 cap = £ 1m. (If a player has played for 2 or more countries then it is total number of caps but only countries that are FIFA affiliated and in the above list of EU countries count)

    You cannot bid higher than a players value and must bid a minimum of 10% (so if you bid for a player who has 80 caps, the most you can bid is £80m and the least you can bid is £8m), we will round up or down on minimum bids.

    If 2 drafters place the same bid then the player with the next highest bid gets him, if nobody else has bid then he remains unpicked for that round.

    All drafters who fail with a bid will have to draft a player (snake format) with no more than 40 caps that player however will cost double the normal price. (so if you draft a player with maximum 40 caps it will cost you £80m). The order of the snake format will go off who bid the most in their failed bid & the player drafted still needs to meet the criteria of the category. In the event of a tie in bids, whoever has most left goes first.

    This will be based on full career.

    Anyone interested?

    Place a bid for any player who played in the final of the defunct European Cup Winners Cup.
    This competition ran from 1961 - 1999.
    Deadline is 12pm tomorrow. (However if bids are all in before then I will announce results).
    I reserve the right to extend the deadline........:)

    @The Doc surely if a bid exceeds budget it should just be rejected and the next highest bidder receive the player?

    Fair.

    I copied the rules from a previous draft I run. Not sure why I had that rule tbh.

    Probably to save me checking every round and to save me work :laugh:
