HKHAMS 17-18 Circular No. 31 - Drawing of the Holland Cup 2017-18

Dear Convenors,


Due to the need to finalise fixtures for the Holland Cup as early as possible, the MS Committee has decided to cut-off the Fair Play award standings and work out the draw after the second round of fixtures.


Currently, the last remaining fixtures in the Premier Division are (i) SSSC A v Valley A and (ii) Pak A v Shaheen A.  The second of these fixtures involves two teams, who are tied for first place in the Fair Play Award standings with only one yellow card apiece throughout the season so far.  If Pak A can avoid a yellow card and avoid defeat against Shaheen A, they will take the Fair Play Award and top seed in the Holland Cup due to the tiebreak rule that the highest placed team in the league standings will win the award in the event of a tie.


Purely for illustrative purposes based on the current standing around the completion of Round 2 (before the 2 remaining fixtures), the Holland Cup seeded draw would look like this:-

Top Half of the Draw

HKFC B/KCC A (9/10) v Winner of Pak A/Shaheen A (1);

Khalsa A (3) v HKFC A (5)


Bottom Half of the Draw

SSSC A (2) v HKCC A/Loser of Pak A/Shaheen A (7/8)

KNS (4) v Valley A (6).

The confirmed drawing of the Holland Cup and fixtures of the preliminary round (to be played on Apr 29) and Quarter-finals (to be played on May 6) will be released shortly after the match between Pak A and Shaheen A is completed on Apr 8.
