OOC

In 2004 we held our very first football league: the Inter-Europa Football League. Two years later, in 2006, this was continued by the Euro Cup. And now, 12 years later, I want to reboot the idea with a Nations League. We will use the tools and generators already available. To help get this started you can add your team and players. We will also be needing a global headquarters.

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
  4. Gallambria
  5. Iverica
  6. Sunset Sea Islands
  7. Variota
  8. Mauridiviah
  9. Prymont
  10. Cristina
  11. Derthalen

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.

      Football's coming home, and that's reminded me that we're coming up on the 2022 Wurld Cup. Last time out, the victors were the Sunset Sea Islands. Since they can't host the tournament for obvious reasons, I figure we can open it up for applications like they do IRL. Additionally, we can replicate the continental tournaments as qualifiers - or, if there aren't enough nations, it can be a sort of warm-up tournament. 
      By my reading of the map, Argis is the only continent with enough active players to host a tournament - the rest of you lot would have to group up. Yuck. I'm happy to take the lead on Argis, and I understand @Oyus has an interest in handling things too, so between the both of us we can figure out the qualifiers stage and prepare for the 2022 Wurld Cup.
      I suppose this post is just putting the feelers out - seeing who's interested and who would participate. We can use a match generator for the fixtures, we have lineup builders, and kit designers. 
       
      Calendar:
      Now - July 18: gauging interest, menial behind-the-scenes planning July 19 - end of July: tournament planning & buildup August: tournaments start & finish  
      For now, we can see where we're at with active participants so we can see which continents need grouping together to have enough teams. Let's get ready for a summer of football!
    • By Kahnikstan
      This radio broadcast is brought to you by The Khanikstan Observer in support by The Khanikstan Communist Party. The Khanikstan Observer and its team of journalists fully supports the Khanikstan Communist Party and report the news as fact under His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's great kindness. The Television Broadcast is brought to you by The Khanikstan Communist Party. 
      The voice of Ahmed Ayman is sent through the airwaves of Khanikstan. Villages all over Khanikstan are huddling around their village TV or tucked away in the homes with their hears pressed against the radios. Large cities are holding public viewing parties attracting people by the hundreds. The broadcast shows Ahmed Ayman in 480p sitting at a desk with a microphone in his hand pool side.
      "It's been 54 long years since this land has seen sporting competitions, and under His Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's excellent guidance, he agrees that international sport is a viable path forward for the Khanikstan people to introduce themselves to the wurld after decades of war kept the country isolated. His Respected believes the Khanikstanian populous to be rife with wurld class swimmers, and has promised only the most excellent accommodations for national athletes. That decree two years leads us here today on the second anniversary of the announcement of the program. Today. 32 swimmers will take the pool to compete in the 100 meter freestyle race. For those listening from across Khanikstan unfamiliar with the swimming, a freestyle stroke is the classic form of swimming. Swimmers will be reaching their arms forward and pulling their arms back with the water while kicking their feet across the pool! Most of the original four thousand athletes competing admitted they had only learned to swim after the Supreme Leader's decree, so we hope this broadcast inspires Khanikstanians everywhere that they too can bring home some national pride." 
       
      "Lets break it down to how we got here, and what today is going to look like." The broadcast switches to silent footage of Hamad Khan giving the decree, and then cycles through various clips of military personnel marching, working or training   "Two years ago His Respected announced a national swimming program that would give only the best athletes a chance at a better life. With most of these men today active service members, a good showing in the pool could mean a lot right now with the political climate what it is"
      The broadcast cuts to a black screen. 45 seconds later, the broadcast cuts back to the set by the pool where Nazif Muhiddin sits with his microphone
      "While all Khanikstanian service members are deeply proud of their service for their country and the Khanikstan Communist Party, they most importantly want to show off the might of the Khanikstan Armed Forces by showing off their dominance as athletes. Now, lets break it down to how we got here, and what today is going to look like."
      The broadcast lists quickly through roughly four thousand names, before cycling through the 32 competitors here today. Footage of the athletes racing or at the pool
      "four thousand swimmers from military bases across the country took the pool in groups of eight, with the top thirty two fastest times earning you a spot today here in Varrock. Today, those thirty two swimmers will be broken down into four heats. The top sixteen times will advance to two semi final rounds where we will end our action for the day! The final race will take place a few weeks from today in honor of Supreme Leader Hamad Khan's 37th birthday. 
      The fastest time coming in belonged to Houshmand Jarral out of Manahal's military base. He will be racing in the third heat of the day. Burak Khawaja is another name to note as he JUST squeaked in by a hair taking up the 32nd spot. If you think you remember his name, you might! Burak Khawaja was the Khanikstan Special Investigation Bureau (KSIB) agent who captured infamous radical Azbekistan loyalist Khamas Hoaral in a sting last spring. He's surely a crowd favorite going in!"
      The broadcast cuts to the pool, where the 8 swimmers in the first heat line up at their blocks.
      "We are poolside just a minute away from the beginning of a new prosperous era under His Respected Supreme Leader for many years to come. In our first heat we have eight athletes representing six different military bases. The swimmers have taken their mark, and the gun sounds! Khanikstan sports are back! The first length of the pool stays close, with the lead swimmer Zurvan Chauhan swimming at a rough 52 second pace right before the first turn. The names read Shadvari Mirani touching the wall first, Turag Prajapati second and Chauhan not far behind. The pace definitely increases in the last twenty five meters! A top three finish here will guarantee a spot in the semis and it looks like its gonna be a tight finish for the top three but a gap separates them from fourth. Vineet Ajnera gets his fingertips on the wall first!  Mirani lands in second, Chauhan third.  Turag Prajapati settles in at 50.87. With only sixteen spots available, he's got a lot of athletes still to race to test that time against.
      The broadcast shows the final results and they read
       Vineet Ajmera 49.53
       Shadvard Mirani 49.57
       Zurvan Chauhan 49.67
       Turag Prajapati 50.87
       Semih Chandio 51.63
       Shervan Sangha 52.15
       Zengin Bhatti 52.22
      Tansal Mohmand 52.22
      The broadcast remains at the final results screen for over two minutes. Silence flooded the airways until loud mic feedback blared its way through the nation's speakers. A third voice cuts through the feedback, corrects the mic and begins to speak in a calm monotone voice over the results graphic
      "The Khanikstan Communist Party is urging all citizens to return to their homes. This is not a drill. As of one hour from the end of this broadcast, Khanikstan is under strict curfew until further notice. No one will be permitted to leave their homes unless specified by Khanikstan Communist Party Official. This is not a drill. Criminals caught for breaking curfew will be treated as traitors to the Peoples Republic of Khanikstan. 
       
      The KSP's seal is shown on the broadcast, the national anthem is played, and it fades to black.
    • By Tagmatium Rules
      Just thought about making an OOC thread, so we can sort out the aims of our different nations.
       
      I assume Rennd's fighting for control of the island and the resources there.
       
      Deltannia's fighting to stop Rennd's grasping, as are the Mongol-Swedes.
       
      There is a Tagmatine force to shore up the Renndian forces and enable them to retain control of the island.
       
      The Aristocracy forces are being deployed to test their armaments and back up the Deltannian units.
       
      That's all well and good, but I can see some problems arising. Aristo's deployment maybe one, as Delt didn't give permission yet, as well as the attack on the airfield didn't give Rennd much of a chance to fight back against the attack.
       
      But, we're here to discuss!
