A premiership?
Some of you might be known with the Premiership idea, f.e. from the CPS on Stadium.
For those who aren't, here is a basic explaination of a Premiership:

A premiership consists of two phases: a groupstage and the playoffs.
In the groupstage you will compete with other teams in your group to secure the first or second place in your group. Those two positions will give you a place in the playoffs.
The groupstage consists of a number of playdays, which will depend on the amount of teams we'll get for this premiership. The groupstage will have 4 groups, over which the participating teams will be spread.
After the groupstage has finished, the best 8 will race for the prizes in the Playoffs in a Double Elimination format.

Why is it that the registrations will close 3 weeks before the first matchday starts? Wouldn't it be better like 3 days before the matches? I mean it's not that complicated to randomly put the teams in groups and start the tournament, or is it?

From the outside it might seem real early to close the registrations 3 weeks early, and you are right in saying that it can be later (2 weeks is possible - which I've just changed).
Only problem is that the ESL system isn't build for admins to create premierships on their own. This has to be done by the management, which takes a while. Furthermore it will allow for training of the maps, releasing the rulebook and allowing players into the discussionforums.
