Paulistão announce dates and schedule for quarter-finals fixtures
All the fixtures will be decided in a single match. The winners will then go on to be drawn for the semi-finals which will be played on Sunday. Like the quarter-finals, they will be played in a single game as well. Only the final will have a round trip for two legs. In the event of a tie in any of these fixtures, the game will be decided immediately via penalties.
For the semi-final first fixture, the best team via score-line will play against the least best from the quarter-finals. The game will take place on Sunday by 4pm. By 7pm, the second one will include the second best team take on the third best from the quarter-finals.
The finals will begin on Wednesday, August 5, at 9:30 pm. The big day in which the winner will emerge is scheduled for Saturday, August 8, at 4:30 pm. It is also the weekend in which the Brasileirão begins. Meaning the finalists of the state will have their matches postponed in the first round of the national championship.
