Champions League Custom Rules:
Beginning with the 2017 season, the Ottoneu Champions League will expand into two divisions (A and B). All rules will govern both divisions, but they will operate as two separate leagues of twelve owners each. The following rules will be applied to the 2017 season and beyond:
The primary goal of the Champions League is to win and sign the official Champions League jersey, awarded to the annual winner of Division A.
Each season, the 11th and 12th place finishing teams in Division A will be demoted to Division B. The 11th place team will receive first priority in selecting the open roster they inherit in Division B.
Each season, both the winner and runner-up of Division B will be promoted to Division A, replacing the 11th and 12th place teams exiting Division A.
The winner of Division B will have first priority in selecting the open roster they inherit in Division A, and will receive the first pick in the annual 5MiLB snake draft in Division A.
Any owner that fails to reach 15,000 points in Division B will be relegated and replaced with a new owner before the conclusion of arbitration for the following season. Replacement owners will be selected from the Ottoneu community (at the discretion of the commissioner) and must have at least one additional Ottoneu championship on their resume to qualify for entry.
Any incoming replacement owners for Division B will have priority above demoted Division A owners in selecting the open roster in Division B they want to inherit.
The 2017 winner of Division A of the Ottoneu Champions League will earn the right to select the MLB team representing the official Ottoneu Champions League jersey trophy.
