Wed, Sep 13th 2023 20:00 UTC (convert timezones here) on the topic of the 2025+ major changes to 2v2 Soccer Leagues. We will have further Open Meetings and discussions on this topic on the forum throughout the season to have enough time to think about and get feedback on major changes that we could not fit into the “after the international tournament until August/September” rules release cycle.

If we get spam problems with the links that are available here we may have to post new Zoom links shortly before or shortly after the beginning of the meetings

Hope to see you there and best regards
