As per previous years, any prizes that aren't claimed get added on to the winners prize fund. There are 32 teams up for grabs and a decent-ish chance you'll at least get your money back. Even if it is courtesy of the biggest loss. Post in here if you want in and give other forumites a heads-up too if you they'd be up for it. I'll PM you details of how to pay, this needs to be done ASAP though to give me time to arrange the draw.
