The 19xx WAFO World Cup was the 0th edition of the WAFO World Cup. It took place in Aorangēa from 16 September to 19 October.

Format

The tournament format was quite unique. Aside from the host, which qualified automatically, there were 19 spots available through continental qualification tournaments. These teams were split into five groups of four teams. A win was awarded two points and a draw one. For a drawn match an extra time was played and the winner was awarded a bonus point which only counted in the event of a tie. A match still tied after extra time did not award any bonus points nor had any penalty shoot-out. For the ranking in the groups, points were considered first and then bonus points. If two or more teams were tied, only the matches between them were considered. For teams still tied then lots were drawn, unless there were only two teams left tied and the result was relevant for the qualification for the next stage, in which case a replay was held.

A sixth group formed of Aorangēa's neighbours was organised by the Aorangēan Football Association in an attempt to to increase the involvement of the local fan base. The WAFO agreed the group winner a spot in the second stage of the tournament proper.

The five group winners from the regular groups qualified directly for the second round. The runner-ups and the winner from the local group were drawn into three play-off matches. The teams qualified as described were drawn randomly into two groups of four. No more than one team from the same first round group were allowed. Also the regular group winners were seeded.

The winners and runner-ups from the second round advanced to the final group, which was held as a round-robin format, where the matches from the previous round were carried over. The two group winners were to meet in the final match which was likely to be the deciding one.

Tiebreakers

  1. Most Points
  2. Most Bonus points
  3. If two or more teams tied, then the above criteria from the matches between the tied teams
  4. If only two teams tied and the tie is relevant for the qualification for the next round, then once a rematch is held going into extra time if necessary
  5. If still tied, coin toss

Results

Despite not being seeded Mergany was the clear favorite and went through the group stage without losses. Aorangēa had a very bumpy start with no goals and only one point from the first two matches. In the final match against Broceliande they managed to secure a victory in overtime which narrowly gained them second place. For Ascot and Broceliande the tournament was disappointing as they were both narrowly defeated and still had good chances to make it to the next round minutes before the final whistle.

Group II was less clear with Merracos taking an early lead. Nevertheless, Federal States managed to defeat them and grab the first place on the final match day.

In Group III Orinoco managed to secure the first place despite starting with a loss. Both Paxtar and Latina started with 2 points each. Their next match was against each other which ended in a draw after extra time. After both teams lost their last match, a rematch had to be held. As this came to no conclustions after 120 minutes either, a coin toss was the last resort.

The group was dominated by New Ingerland, despite East Anglesbury having the home advantage. They achievad a remarkable 9:0 against Wāhakea flag.png Wāhakea, but the defeat against New Ingerland in the second round rendered this result meaningless.

Final Round

Despite finishing second in Group A, Federal States could carry over a tiny advantage with their overtime victory. The leader before the final two match days was Suria, who could carry over the maximum of 2 points. The first machday gave a clear victory for Mergany, while Suria could not match their expectations and failed to make any points.

The organizers' plan did not work out. Before the final match day Federal States as runner up from Group A was in the lead and could secure the first place by defeating Orinoco, which had no points so far and were deemed be finish fourth in any case. With an easy match for Federal States, the envisaged "big final" between the group winners Mergany and Suria became would only be decisive with Orinoco's help. The spectators were not happy with this and subsequent tournaments changed back to the classical knock out format.

Nevertheless, Federal States had trouble to control the game, leaving the match drawn after 90 minutes. That was what the spactators of the other match were hoping for, would a victory for Mergany now mean they win the tournament. While Mergany had an early lead, a goal for Suria ten minutes before the whistle pushed Federal States back into the first rank. Both matches went into overtime, but the decision was already made. Mergany's victory in overtime made them match Federal States's points and bonus points, but the direct comparison decided in favour of Federal States.
