The Argis and Northern Alharu Football Association (ANAFA) and the Southern Alharu, Thalassian, Aurelian and Marenesian Football Confederation (SATAMFC) will both be having their respective league cups start on 8th October (this upcoming Monday). This post walks through the teams that make up each confederation that is slated to appear in each competitive grouping (specific match-ups will be not be determined until the night before).
The slated participating countries are the following:
ANAFA: Iverica, Prymont, Soreana, Ahrana, Sayf, Derthalen, Seylos, Limonaia, Variota, Fulgistan
SATAMFC: Rihan, Kipan, Faramount, Sunset Sea Islands, Asgeirria, Shffarika, Andalla, Gallambria, Pallamara, Mauridiviah
Results of each match will be generated using the FIFA web generator used for the World Cup back at the beginning of the summer (following this cycle of matches, a more formal formula will be devised). Each slated match will only be generated once on the day of the match in question.
Prymont, Limonaia, and I strongly encourage participating countries to write posts over the course of the League Cups. These do not need to specifically match reviews, but they also individuals at home reacting, or a journalist reporting on the result of the match, or even actions occurring during the match itself (coach yelling at players for example). We do not want to be too demanding, but it would great if people could write a few paragraphs (2-4 at minimum). It is my personal intention of trying to use the information generated in these posts to write detailed wiki pages following the end of the competitions that will add flavor beyond just match score results. If you need help generating some ideas for such posts, feel free to run some ideas by the three of us.
Please look here UENA Football Teams for team information. Many of the teams in the above list have already provided such information in the past and hence, do not need to do this again. Ahrana, Sayf, Seylos, Faramount, Andalla, and Pallamara: I need team information (see the UENA Football Teams category on iiWiki) from you.
All slated participants from the above lists must post a response in this thread recognizing that they've read the above post by no later than Sunday afternoon 1pm ET. Their response will be accepted as formal registration for these games. If an above-slated participant does not respond by the deadline, they will be replaced with another potential nation who will be contacted by me.

Sport is not huge in Chairon but the one game that has attracted a sizeable following is, oddly enough, Aussie Rules. Seems the previous Araban was a bit of a footy buff, having encountered it on a diplomatic trip overseas, and the game kind of took off from there.
There's 5 teams in the league. Fifteen rounds a season, teams play each other three times and the top two sides play in the Grand Final to decide the champion.
Here's the results from Round 1, 2006.
Morecia North v Morecia South 2. 2 (14) 5.0 (30) 6. 5 (41) 7.3 (45) 12. 8 (80) 7.6 (48) 16.12 (108) 10.9 (69) Goals: North: Baker 6, Neville 3 South: Hayden 6 Summary: In the local derby, the Hawks overcame a sluggish start to overwhelm the Swans by 39 points. Bill Baker and Tom Hayden kicked 6 goals each. Swans ruckman Victor Charles was reported for striking in the third quarter. Archo v Destin 4. 4 (28) 5.3 (33) 4. 8 (32) 9.3 (57) 5.12 (42) 12.5 (77) 5.12 (42) 19.8 (122) Goals: Archo : Callahan 2 Destin: Vincenzi 7, Pryor 4, Slade 2 Summary: Archo were humiliated at home by the classy Destin side. Teenage sensation Arcangelo Vincenzi kicked seven on debut, while veteran Peter Slade dominated in the midfield. George Callahan was the best for a woeful Lions team that looks set for another horror season. Parrian had the bye this week.
