Teams have already started to have the occasional practice, so it's time to start preparing if you're looking for a team. The format will have the same number of teams as last year (20), and many teams already have many roster spots filled, so get going if you haven't already.
Big News: This year it looks like El Salvador will not have a team. El Salvador won the first WCP cup and made it to the final the next year before losing to the Republic of Ireland. Their fan support was outstanding and the team will be missed. While it is not for certain that there is no team, unless there is a huge turnaround, El Salvador will not have a team.
Rumors: There have also been rumors that the Republic of Ireland is also apparently having roster problems, but it's just a rumor and nothing more at this point.
Columbia will be submitting a team this year, which will likely comprise many El Salvador players if the team folds. Hopefully the fans for El Salvador could get behind Columbia's team.
It is also possible that there will be a team France, but again, just a rumor.
