2-1 gives the winner 2 pts and looser 1 pts.
1:st Wednesday at 20.00 GMT+1 (Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Wien…)
2:nd (backup) Thursdays at 20.00 GMT+1 (Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Stockholm, Wien…)
Make your team ready to play both wednesday and thursday. These are the main days to play. Do NOT expect the other team to play other times than those days.
NOTE Wednesday is the default raceday. If one team can not play wednesday, both teams needs to agree to race on backup day = thursday. Wednesday overules thursday if teams can not agree on time. BUT TMM is all about good sportsmanship, so do not take advantage of this rule to get Farfait victories. Fair play please.
Under special circumsises teams can agree on other time and day, friday, saturday, sunday. Keep in mind, 1:st and 2:nd match time overrules any other suggestions.
