The 2023 DSAFF Frost Cup, also known as Lannistter-Kurdiastan 2023, will be the third edition of the second most important tournament for major national teams organized by the Democratic Socialist Assembly Football Federation (DSAFF). It will take place in Lannistter and Kurdiastan between 2 January and 14 February 2024.

For the first time in the competition's history, the Frost Cup will be hosted by two different nations. Furthermore, for the first time, the event did not start in December to end in January, but in January to end in February. It was thus called the "2023" Frost Cup despite it not being held until 2024.

Although the 2022 edition had 32 participants, DSAFF decided - in agreement with the host countries - to reduce the number to 24, the same as the first edition in 2021.



History

Despite the success of the two previous editions, DSAFF decided in agreement with the two host countries to reduce the number of participants. Now in its third edition, the Frost Cup returned to having 24 teams, rather than 32, to maintain the Comrades Cup as the federation's most prestigious trophy.

Lannistter returned to tournament hosting a year and a half after the 2022 Comrades Cup, while Kurdiastan made its debut in an official DSAFF competition as a host.

Given the high number of participants, despite the limited number of places available, DSAFF decided for the first time in its history to organize two qualifying playoffs. The second place in the COTEFU route and the three lowest ranked in the MexiCola Ranking took part, bringing the number of participating teams from 26 to 24.

Host nation

On September 10, 2023, the LFA (Lannish Football Association) and the KFF (Kurdiastan Football Federation) presented their official co-host bid to the DSAFF Congress. Lannistter had already hosted the second edition of the Comrades Cup, while Kurdiastan hadn't even played an official DSAFF match yet. On October 15, 2023, as that was the only bid presented, the DSAFF Congress officialized Lannistter and Kurdiastan as the host nations of the third edition of the Frost Cup.

The official logo of the competition was created by the Talamian designer Aneer Ktema, from the Graph studios. It was unveiled on November 30, 2023. The logo featured both Lannish and Kurdiastani colors and a fox head, recalling the Lannish national animal: the silver fox.

Venues

Lannistter and Kurdiastan picked ten different stadiums around seven different cities to host the tournament.

The following stadiums were chosen to host the matches:

  • The Köissar Adölf I Stadium (Olympic Stadium) in Arkhangelsk, Lannistter (capacity: 120.000);

  • The Luna Parkën in Arkhangelsk, Lannistter (capacity: 34.000);

  • The Gördcivtalöllë in Arkhangelsk, Lannistter (capacity: 22.000);

  • The Akkädi in Arkhangelsk, Lannistter (capacity: 21.500);

  • The Kläusschgëlle in Klaussportën, Lannistter (capacity: 8.000);

  • The Vittössk in Tärönttö, Lannistter (capacity: 50,000)

  • The Säarbössk in Säarbuköo, Lannistter (capacity: 32,000)

  • The Adenössk Findel in Raedbürgstad, Lannistter (capacity: 46,000)

  • The Luluat Alsahra in Huz'beer Shawan, Kurdiastan (capacity: 28,000)

  • The Wasat Filudrum in Tevyat, Kurdiastan (capacity: 95,000).


List of participating teams

After the last edition welcomed 32 teams, the third returned to a 24-team format. For the first time, given that 26 teams participated, qualifying playoffs were organised, in which the four worst-placed teams in the MexiCola ranking took part.

The 24 teams were divided into four pots according to their position in the DSAFF MexiCola™ Ranking as of 27 November 2023, with the highest-ranked teams in pot A and so on. The draw was held in Lannistter's capital city, Arkhangelsk, inside the world-renowned floating restaurand "Laxy", on 1 January 2024. It was led by RistiLand's forward Sbratislav Jutlu, Vicures Islands' manager and 2023 Comrades Cup's best coach Kurt Lappainen, LFA's president Enkel Reuzler and Lannish rising superstar Negro Waskaffar.

A few days before the draw, the Kanoshuan football federation announced its withdrawal from the tournament due to the ongoing war in the country. Kanoshu's spot was taken by the football federation of Soclania, which was exceptionally added to pot B despite being unranked.

Format

The third edition of the Frost Cup saw a return to the original format featuring 24 teams in the final round. For the first time in history, however, a DSAFF competition had an official qualification path. The teams officially registered for the Frost Cup were in fact 26. Of these, five made their debut in a DSAFF competition: Montecrux, Scandinavia, North American Atlantic Republic, Helisweerde and the hosts Kurdiastan. The debuting teams were all officially admitted. The qualification path was reserved for the four teams with the lowest place in the DASFF MexiCola™ Ranking: Aarkhytra, Cat Army, Furilisca and RistiLand. The four teams were drawn and played each other in a single match. The two defeated national teams did not advance to the final phase.

The teams were then divided into four pots according to their position in the MexiCola™ Ranking as of 3 December 2023, with the exception of Lannistter and Kurdiastan, the host nations, automatically allocated to group A and group F respectively. The teams were drawn into six groups of four teams each, where they competed in a single-leg round robin format. Teams were awarded three points for a win, one point for a draw and none for a defeat.

The winners and runners-up of every group advanced to the knockout stage, along with the four best third placed. The knockout stage involved four rounds of matches, with each round eliminating half of the teams entering that round: the round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, and the final. There was also a play-off to decide third and fourth place. For each game in the knockout stage, any draw at 90 minutes was followed by thirty minutes of extra time; if scores were still level, there was a penalty shootout to determine who progressed to the next round.

Ranking criteria

If teams will level on points, they will be ranked on the following criteria in order:

  • Most points earned in matches against other teams in the tie

  • Greatest goal difference in matches against other teams in the tie

  • Greatest number of goals scored in matches against other teams in the tie

  • If teams will remain level after those criteria, a mini-group would be formed from those teams, who will be ranked on:

    • Greatest total goal difference in the three group matches

    • Greatest number of goals scored in the three group matches

    If teams will remain level after all these criteria, DSAFF will hold a drawing of lots.
