How To Spice Up The JPT

One suggestion on how the league could spice up the JPT/LDV.

League One x 24 teams

League Two x 24 teams

Conference x 16 teams (note 8 Conference teams not involved)

Teams entered = 64

16 area groups of 4 teams

ROUND 1

All groups play 2 matches over a weekend at one venue.

Day admission is 10 for two games of football. All revenue, after costs is split 20% between all 4 teams involved and the cup fund.

Saturday: 1v2 & 3v4

Sunday: 3rd & 4th play-off, followed by the final.

Thus left with 16 teams left in the competition

ROUND 2

The following weekend, the remaining teams are draw into 4 groups of of 4 teams.

All groups play 2 matches over a weekend at one venue.

Day admission is 10 for two games of football. All revenue, after costs is split 20% between all 4 teams involved and the cup fund.

Saturday: 1v2 & 3v4

Sunday: 3rd & 4th play-off, followed by the final

Thus left with 4 teams in left in the competition

FINALS WEEK

At the Millennium Stadium

For those the can provide tickets stubs for all matches in Round 1 & Round 2 (i.e 4 ticket stubs) pay 15 to watch all the games on Saturday and Sunday. Day admission without all tickets from the previous rounds is 30.

All revenue, after costs is split 20% between all 4 teams involved and the cup fund.

Saturday: 1v2 & 3v4

Sunday: 3rd & 4th play-off, followed by the final

Takes up 3 pre-season weekends. This still allows teams to organise high-profile pre-season matches during the week and gives more teams/fans to go to the Millennium Stadium.

Still a few problems to iron out, the idea is there.
