Because 40 teams have been approved for participation, the Autumn Babby Cup will be conducted in a Megababby format consisting of eight groups of five teams. The Cup will take place over a period of four weeks with eight games per day, the final day of the Group Stage for Groups E-H being done on the Friday of the typical Knockouts weekend. Here is a diagram.

Date Adjustments:
Because of the new format and the exclusion of a Qualifiers round, dates will now be as follows:
Aesthetics Export Deadline: October 15th, 23:59:59 UTC
Tactical Export Deadline: October 16th, 23:59:59 UTC
Draw: October 17th
First Weekend: October 22-24
Second Weekend: October 29-31
Third Weekend: November 5-7
Last Day of Groups + Knockout Draw: November 12
Knockouts: November 13-14

Rule Changes:
Autumn will be played on PES 2021 and have the following rule changes:

  1. Green Height Bracket
    1. The stat reduction for medals set to 199cm in height will be increased. Golds will now receive a -6 stat reduction (all stats set to 93), and Silver players will now receive a -3 stat reduction (all stats set to 85).
  2. Copy Preset Tactics, Change Formation at Kick-off
    1. The Copy Preset Tactics function will no longer be allowed as a pre-match instruction. You may still use the instruction as part of a timeout during a match.
    2. Additionally, using the Change Formation function to copy one fluid formation to another within the same preset as a pre-match instruction is also no longer allowed. For example, asking duing pre-match to copy the When-out-of-possession formation onto the Kick-off formation with the intent to turn off Fluid Formation would be denied.

Additionally, day one nightlies will NOT be used in this Cup. Deadline exports will be used for a team's first match as per usual.

AI Patch:
TBD Soon™. Within the next week or two.
