Morheim has a fine semi-professional football league but I'm happy being the Faroe Isles of the UENA if possible.

One more and we have 8 nations competing. That would be enough for a very small bracket.

Feel free to update your applications and include a team name, kit, etc.

Since no-one is offering to host, I'll take this up myself.

Alright. I'm skipping a load of steps and going straight to the tournament bit. Right now I'm counting 11 interested players.

  1. Orioni
  2. Eurotuhrer
  3. Morheim

  5. Iverica
  6. Sunset Sea Islands
  7. Variota
  8. Mauridiviah

Now we just need 6 more names and we're set for a 16-player game.

  • First round of 16, with 4 groups of 4 nations
  • Second round with brackets

As far as rules and regulations go, I'm going to have at look at NS and elsewhere and devise a system.

Het Huisselant Variota
National Football Team

The Golden Privateers
Het Gaut'n 
Freikaapers

 

Introduction
Yes! The best football team of Alharu has returned to the international football scene! Het Gaut'n Freikaapers' new squad is sure to impress with a mix of new and more experienced players. While the average age of the main squad remains on the younger side, the reserves are filled with experienced players that have seen their fair share of international matches. Who can forget the 2002 match against the Prymontian National Team where Hans fan'et Wolf, then a young inexperienced wildcard of a goalkeeper, kept out all eight Prymontian shots on target for the entire second half and ensured a 2-1 victory for Het Huisselant? The same man, now a grizzled veteran of the football fields, is now playing his last international tournament before fully retiring at the ripe age of 34.

Yes! We have some of the best coaches and support staff. Drawing from the massive pool of domestic talent, we have managed to find none-other than the 1980's wonderboy of Variotan football: Ronnie Ronthuissen. The star striker of teams such as FK Ranjekaat, GSF Grootwaterflakte and Sporting Finfishafen in the late 80s has returned from his football retirement and 'job' as a self-proclaimed Whine celebrity to take charge and sort the team out. Under his training regiment and leadership, aided by assistant coaches Rikkert Tuureterp and Ivan 'Vanny' Paalenmaaker-Aleksandrov, Ronthuissen has done his best to shape up the team into one that can bring home the UENA World Cup victory. In addition to regular doctors, the minds and souls of the players are supported through an omni-trained chaplain, the blessing of Gillofan V of the Variotan Christian Church and two alternative healthcare provides skilled in things such as aromatherapy, acupuncture, chakra realignment, chi harnessing and tarot card drawings.

Yes! We have some of the best players! Playing a defensive 4-4-2 position, the Golden Privateers will attempt to keep the more aggressively playing opponents from scoring while tiring them out in the long run. Starting Strikers Johan 'Bolle Jo' fan Branttorp and Ibrahim 'WooWoo' Wu will give the squad the attacking power it will need to consistently score goals. Bolle Jo has seen a good year at FK Orgaan Hotels Ferrefaaierhafen with the player growing more and more into his role as the sniper of the team, working in the long shots with accuracy and power while somewhat lacking in endurance. Wu, or WooWoo as the local supporters call him, is the first pure-blooded Fulgistani player to get selected for the main squad. His recent move from Foetbal Finfishafen to FK Ranjekaat saw him struggling to integrate in an area with far less Fulgistani citizens. Luckily for the Golden Privateers, he has managed to recover in time to join us in the UENA World Cup. Where Bolle Jo lacks endurance and likes to work in the long shots, WooWoo uses his speed and endurance to close the gap to the goal as a way to compensate for relatively low shot strength and average accuracy.

Yes! The goal is on lock. Koen Dekkerburg from Ghestelikke Foetbal Klub Kattetraalstatt (GFKK) is the starting goalkeeper and the legendary Hans fan'et Wolf remains on scene to keep the goal on lock as our reserve goalkeeper. GFKK managed to get promoted to the Foorste Foetbalkompetitie for a large part on the efforts of Dekkerburg, enabling secure conditions for their mediocre attackers and ensuring that they could take risks. While Hans fan'et Wolf is no longer playing in the highest divisions, he remains a starter for the semi-professional club Limbo Lorrevelt which plays in the Varinco Kompetitie. The man has shown to be in good condition and although his age may reduce his amount of endurance, he is seen as a solid reserve as he is able to draw from a wealth of experience.

      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.

    • BREAKING: President Duval announces snap general election for late November; first Prymontian Rus elections due November 2nd NEW HALSHAM, COURTMARSH - President George Duval has confirmed that, amidst the rumours of the past few days, the United States will be holding a snap general election on November 30th. This will come as a surprise to few, as rumours and hints have been circulating since September that pressure within Courtmarsh House has been building for a new parliament. The public are holding Duval to account for the failure to meet election promises: lower military spending, reduce unemployment, increase public services spending, and stabilise the chaotic political situation of central Argis. Politicians are also unhappy with Duval, as the National Party are now being accused of rigging the historic July 2017 elections to hand themselves an overwhelming majority. Prymont's five main political parties have been given just under six weeks to prepare and publish their election campaigns. The National Party confirmed that Duval will be their President if their campaign is successful, and despite their declining support figures, they are still the party to beat. The People's Party, a centre-right conservative group headed by Felix Frey, are believed to be the biggest threat to the National's majority, as they appeal to the public by promoting capitalism and promising the generation of thousands of jobs. The United Prymont Future Party, another centre-left organisation much like the Nationals, are believed to be a slightly riskier alternative, as they promise to reverse the recent tax increases and lower the cost of living. PNN will provide detailed coverage of the lead-up to election day. In addition to this news, the President has also revealed that the newly formed Prymontian Rus will have their own general election on November 2nd, after months of trouble and turmoil. The USP humanitarian groups have been successful in quelling the disputes of the land, and have sought enough former and new politicians to create a varied political landscape. The National Party-backed Iskander Yegerov, of the National Rus Party, is a firm favourite for voters and fellow politicians alike to win the Premiership.  This news has not been met without trouble in the United States, as voters have gathered on the streets of New Halsham to protest Prymont's involvement in the new country. Many believe that the National Party are using the former Hellenic Rus state to gain further political control over central Argis, and to channel funds into boosting the United States' military capabilities. However, the 'takeover' of the country can be a positive investment, as engineers have already started work on the Canamo Canal in newly purchased southern lands bordering the Mediargic Sea, which will massively improve maritime trade with the area and propel local economies into significant wealth. 
      President Duval photographed shortly after announcing the snap general election.   Ostport state government shows plans for β3 billion 5-year renovation plan CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - In an annual state government public consultation, the Ostport state government have revealed a staggering three billion Prynd renovation and upgrade plan for the next five years. Ostport's considerable growth since the creation of the United States has been hard to ignore, and Canastota has long been the most populous city in the country. Many companies are now choosing to locate their headquarters in the state's capital, such as massive economic benefactors the Kaldestad Aamot Group, the Northern Bank of Ostport financial giant, and alpine equipment specialists Koren. It is also understood that the completion of the Canamo Canal in late 2019 will bring great trade benefits to Canastota, the docks of which are already receiving β300m for upgrades to handle the added capacity. This monumental amount of money for one state will be going to several good public causes. Public transport will be the recipient of approximately half of this capital, to invest in new transport hubs, rail and bus routes, modern equipment, and new job roles. Hospitals in the state will also receive funding to ease staff restraints and modernise equipment, while money will also go to supporting families who have lost jobs through the demise of the fishing industry as well as reorganising public services such as unemployment schemes, homelessness reduction plans, and charities chosen by the public. The plan is the brainchild of Jasper Revheim, a critical figure in Ostportian politics since the 2017 elections. Revheim represents the National Party, and hopes that this scheme will support his chances of reelection in November.
      High speed trains like these, pictured in Canastota's Sparby Station as part of the Canastota-New Halsham Line, will become common with the new funding.   Kaldestad Aamot Group purchases Central Canastota Sports Stadium KAP STADIUM, OSTPORT - The Central Canastota Sports Stadium was constructed in 1995 to bring sports in the United States to a global stage. It is the current home of the Prymontian Yetis, the country's national football team, as well as the Canastota Sharks, one of the top teams in the domestic league. Over the years, the CCSS has also hosted music concerts, rugby matches, and boxing events, showcasing the diversity of the arena. The Prymontian Football Association, the governing body of football in the United States, also calls the stadium it's home.  In 2012 the stadium underwent expensive renovations to bring it up to date with modern standards and equipment, as well as providing a higher seating capacity and providing space within the stadium grounds for public shopping areas to provide an additional source of income. In 2017, the stadium went up for sale, as the National Party sought to generate revenue and eliminate unnecessary expenditure. Today, a new owner has been found in the Kaldestad Aamot Group, one of the largest companies in the US.  The stadium has been renamed to the KAP Stadium, promoting the largest brand within the KAG, and CEO Erik Bruun has revealed plans to create a 'greater sports complex'. These plans include a superdome for domed sports and exhibition events, a velodrome, an aquatics centre, and an indoor karting circuit. The cost of purchasing the stadium and surrounding land is yet to be disclosed, but it is believed that the Group will be spending billions in the coming years to create the world standard in sporting complexes. 
      A CGI rendition of the planned superdome.   Prymontian Yetis top the standings in the Argic & Northern Alharun Football Association Cup CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - The ANAFA League Cup began on the 10th of October, with ten of the best teams from the two continents playing for glory. The Prymontian Yetis were successful in qualifying for the Cup, and drew in a friendly against Limonaia before the league commenced. In the first game, the Yetis beat @Soreana by 3 goals to 1, placing them atop the standings with the Limonaians. The second round of matches were held on the 20th, and Prymont were victorious once more, beating @Limonaia 2-1 to improve upon their previous draw. This win kept the Yetis at the top of the table, joined only in points by @Variota. Thus far, the Yetis have scored the most goals in the tournament, and have the greatest positive goal difference. The team couldn't have gotten off to a better start, and are receiving great praise from supporters, but pundits are yet to be complacent with their position. In years gone by, the Yetis have shown glimmers of hope, only to be shot down shortly after by poor plays, inadequate players, and failing leadership. Team manager Nojus Fauskanger assembled a mixed squad of promising youths and experienced veterans for the 2018 @Orioni World Cup, and while the team exited that tournament in the group stages, many applauded their performance. Now, with weak links out and new players in, the Yetis are showing stronger than ever, and many are confident that they will go on to the quarter finals in December. Others are adamant that it is only a matter of time before the team return to their old ways of failure and demise, but captain Vincent Borge hopes to silence those critics. "Our team has played brilliantly so far, and we've changed our training methods and squad rotation to ensure that we're always at our best. We've got some amazing players on board this year, and it's now the start of something great for Prymont's national football scene." The Yetis will next play @Seylos on the 24th of October.

The identity of this politician was never divulged but he suspected that it was his newfound senatorial backer, Livana Charvanek. Now wasn't the time to contemplate this and rather to put his skills to work on getting the high-speed railway project off the ground. Up until today, Yhfillain, the more notable face of the Ministry, had been charged almost exclusively on operating the public transport system - the commuter railways of the three major cities, the intercity bus network, and the various riverbus services along the major waterways and along the coast of the Apnex Sea. Now, this body had been ordered to be responsible for the planning and construction of a high-speed line between the capital, Dartha, and the third-largest (yet second-most important) city, Peldred to the southeast in the Chetris Province. This was a completely foreign territory for the Ministry. He knew that the Senate wanted quick results to show the masses that they were addressing their concerns. He adjusted himself in his desk chair and pressed a buzzer on his intercom. "Elvia, can you come in here please?" he asked. She was his secretary, equally attractive and unemotional in her work. "Yes sir," she inquired, getting her pad at the ready to take down his instructions. "I want you to work with Jeran and Ulik in preparing a contract posting for an engineering and design consultant to help us with the high-speed project." She nodded in acknowledgment. "Both of them already have all the details from me as to what is required of our eventual contractor," he said pausing for a moment. "And one other thing," he began, Elvia was attentive, "Senator Chavarnek and I are supposed to meet every week, can you work with her aide and set it up." Elvia began skimming his calendar as he was saying this. "I'll get on it right away. Anything else sir?" she inquired. "Not now," he responded. "That will be all." She nodded once more and left the room. After she was out of the office, he picked up his phone and called Almor. "My friend, how are you...and the children...good, good. I am sure you heard the latest over Tlaru Aihrifv Rheilhhu...you have? Then I don't have to go over the entire story with you...is it possible for you to arrange a meeting between me, the Mayor (Maiori) of Peldred, Cildan; and Chetris Governor (Jahærenen) Lakol? Thank you. Call me on my cellphone the moment you have that three-way conversation confirmed...we'll talk again soon, have a good day..."

    • "...sounding second alarm at Via Zannoni 3381, fire has spread from vehicle to nearby housing..." "...additional units requested at Via Renauld 477 for domestic disturbance, neighbor reports argument regarding footballing..." "Turn that off." "...all available units in area, respond immediately to Embassy of Asgeirria, diplomatic quarter, this is an officer needs help call..." "...10-16, 10-16, respond immediately for support to Via Rocca de Baldi 88, fire unit reports being under attack by hooligans..." "I SAID TURN THAT RADIO OFF." Senior Inspector Prisco Vigliotti bellowed the order at the driver of the police bus, who finally switched off the dispatch radio. Vigliotti did not even bother to mutter a thank you before turning back to his platoon of riot officers. "We are thirty seconds out. Remember: no deadly force. This is the eighth game in ten years that we haven't lost. The president does not want this success undermined by bloodshed." The field officer of the Faramontese Paramilitary Police had barely finished that last statement when the bus suddenly lurched to a stop, nearly throwing the man -- the equivalent of a captain in the army -- to the ground. "I can't get any closer," the driver said, "there's fire trucks in the way." "Amateurs," Vigliotti remarked with contempt, eyeing the firefighting vehicles, before turning back to his men. "Alright, then. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR. DISEMBARK, NOW. MOVE!" The thirty paramilitaries onboard jumped to their feet and quickly exited the vehicle through its three doors, forming up on the pavement outside. They found a scene of utter chaos. The local and national police had been trying to keep order near Terrome Stadium, but clearly, that effort had failed. Injured policemen were sitting everywhere, being helped by firefighters and paramedics. Up ahead, Vigliotti could see that some firefighters and other volunteers were helping to maintain the police's haphazard riot line. The acrid smell of smoke and the sound of sirens filled the air, but above all else, it was the noise of the crowd -- the screaming, the breaking glass, the brawling -- that stood out.  "Well," Vigliotti said to no one in particular, staring past the police line at mob of several thousand Faramontese football fans violently celebrating their team's narrow escape of defeat, "it would appear we have our work cut out for us."
