Second Round draw of the Ultimate Quaran-Team is revealed by Leyton Orient, now that majority of First Round games have been played out.
The tournament has seen a total of 128 clubs battle it out to progress to the next stage, majority of those from the English leagues, though plenty from abroad too.
For those who still are unsure on what this is all about, it’s a knockout tournament with every loss resulting in elimination until only two teams remain for the final.
The League Two side set it up in order to keep some sort of excitement going whilst the football season is suspended.
A JustGiving page has been published, to help clubs who financially need it, but also to raise money for charity and to help find a way to find a cure for Coronavirus. Over 50,000 has been raised so far.
The O’s clarified that each club, most from the Premier League and EFL, will choose a representative to play and it could be anyone from a first-team player to a supporter. The likes of Andros Townsend, Neal Maupay and Todd Cantwell have all entered.
It will be purely knock-out in style, with every loss resulting in elimination until only two teams remain for the final.

The Rotterdam derby will be a tense affair, can Sparta beat their city rivals? Also PSV up in the Highlands, will they handle the atmosphere at the Global Energy Stadium?
