B Shield Format - With 10 teams, the B Shield has a twist!
Week 1: All 10 teams play the opponent determined by an open draw.
Week 2: Among the 5 winners, a 2nd draw takes place to determine the 4 semi-finalists. One team will be an "unlucky winner" & elminated from the Shield (Man City, anyone?).  This is required to give all teams a chance to compete for the Shield in the allocated 3 weeks and definitely adds another element of unpredictability to the competition!
Week 3: Winners play in the Finals at 9:00 on Field #1.
 
A Shield Format - With 6 teams
Week 1: The top 2 teams in the standings advance to the semifinals directly.  The other 4 teams play the opponent determined by an open draw.
Week 2: Winners of the 2 games in week 1 and the 2 "bye" teams are drawn to determine the semi-final pairings
Week 3: Winners play in the Finals at 8:00 on Field #1.
 
Of course, we will still have lots of other soccer "friendlies" going-on for the teams not competing directly for the Shield.
 
Good luck to all teams!  We look forward to amazing soccer, as well as great sportsmanship, during this year's GGSL Shield!
