Random and possibly weird question here.
I'm currently managing in Russia and noticed that the Russian Cup starts in the 5th round. Is there a reason why it starts in Round 5 and not in Round 1 like across here?
Only reason I can think of is that they have preliminary round from round 1-4 for the amateur/semi pro teams that dont show up in the game.
Seen it in other countries such as France and Belgium aswell.
