Sorry for the delay, but I can now announce that it will be Qormi FC joining the winners of each group in the quarter-finals, following their qualification decider against Blooming FC (which was won by just the one goal).
As such, our quarter-finalists are as follows:
Yoker Athletic IBV Vestmannaeyjar Vikingur Gota Gibraltar United Fylkir Tout Puissant Mazembe Mighty Jets Qormi FC
The Quarter-Final fixtures are as follows:

Please send me a PM by no later than midnight a week today (Wednesday 2nd August), with your preferred winner from each Quarter-Final fixture.

Sorry for the delay in confirming the results. I'm now back off hols, and can confirm that one of our semi-finals is currently a draw. Therefore, I will extend the voting until midnight tonight in case anyone who has not yet voted wishes to. After that, I might let Sandy Jnr determine the penalty shoot-out!

Perhaps unsurprising, bearing in mind their performances in the group stages and quarter-finals, but after a narrowly-won semi-final, they had to find some of their earlier form in the competition to beat popular side Fylkir in the final.
In the end, though, Yoker's clinical finishing saw them run out comfortable 4-1 victors, and they are crowned our champions.
Well done to all the teams who took part, and thanks to everyone for their votes. Thanks also to a_r_s for the excellent idea in the first place.
