The next Soapchat World Cup will be between the soap operas themselves, competing against each other to find your outright winner. There will be 32 soap operas taking part in the final tournament, after the qualifying rounds have been completed. To ensure the qualifying stages don't go on for too long, I will pre-select about half the soaps to automatically qualify (based on my perception of their popularity on Soapchat and in the wider world) and the remaining places will be chosen by forum members after a nomination and voting process. Soap operas from any country, any era, prime-time or daytime, TV or radio, will be eligible to take part. The rules of the game will be the same as before (see link here). Further details to follow. If you have any questions please post them on this thread.
