The Copa Album Club is a World Cup-style tournament to celebrate the first anniversary of Monday Night Album Club. It was devised by Tuftii and Discord moderator Kathryn during a late-night video chat and introduced during the 44th edition of the album club.


The Monday Night Album Club is a regular, recurring feature on the Community Garden Radio Discord server and Community Garden Radio. It is hosted and produced by Tuftii, with co-production from Moo the Cat. The show is broadcasted live from 'Tuftii Towers'. Listeners are invited to listen along on the Discord server and on Patreon. The show is uploaded to Patreon for catch-up.

Each album is given a match to play in and Discord members can vote on the match for their favourite. Voting is closed on Thursdays at 5pm and results are broadcast on the following Monday's album club, with Tuftii and Macs McCoist providing punditry and reports on the matches in a Match of the Day-style parody.

The tournament

The chosen albums will be randomly placed into matches and placed up for a vote in the new Discord channel, users will vote on their favourite album between the pair and the winner advances to the next round. One album will be given a bye due to 31 albums being chosen[1].
