March 7, 2024

March 7 fell on a Thursday and was a special day in Ionian as the Ionian Football League Season 2024 was about to begin. The hot weather was annoying, but it was not the suffocating heat that was recorded from the end of December until the end of February. The person living in the San Foca – Torre Canne conurbation were enjoying a restful evening after a long working day. Traffic on the city's highway networks were crazy because many people were moving to the Torre Canne Buccaneers stadium. Many people used cars, while other people used public transportation to get to the stadium.

The Kick-off game of the season is always a spectacular moment, as it was celebrated with several celebrations and a game. Tickets for the game quickly sold out, and it was expected that there were high numbers of the Torre Canne Buccaneers fairies to see their players try to win the early Season game. For people who could not get tickets or live far from San Foca – Torre Canne could watch the IBC Football Night in Ionian television program.

As fans were making their way to the gates to show tickets and gain access inside the stadium there were a couple of friends who lived in Torre Canne and were Buccaneers fans.

“I am happy that IFL is about to start.”

“Yes. I was looking forward to it starting so we can do fantasy football.”

“Agreed. It was fun the auction and creating our team. But now let's hurry in so we can get our food and sit down to watch the pre game show”

After they efected the ticket check, the two friends went to the area where there were several stores selling food and drinks. After they got the food they went to their seats that allowed them to see the whole camp. 

“I can't wait for the pre-game show to start.”

“It's going to be good this time. To finally see the banner that we are 64 Ionian Bowl champions is a beautiful emotion.”

“Yes. Although we have many old and new opponents this year”

“Yes. Tororti Vikings are a new team that was added after the war. They are mediocre based on pre season performance so I think we beat them easily”

As the two friends were discussing the stadium lights went out and the pre-game show was about to begin

Immediately the music began to play and all the perse began to shout as the speaker was pronouncing the beginning of the Pre Kickoff Show

“The Ionian Football League welcomes you to the Frecciarossa Kick-off 65 Pre game show.”

The band that was performing was the famous Midnight 1983 which was a music group of the synthwave egenre and of course while they were singing there was also choreography that added spectacularity to the show

After the 1983 Midnight finished performing the attention shifted to the Ring Announcer that stood in the center of the Michele Abete field while there was tense music in the background

“Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the first game of the Ionian Football League 2024. Torre Canne are you ready? For the people waiting here and the millions around the wurld who wish to be here. Let's get ready to rumble!”

“Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the first game of the Ionian Football League 2024. Torre Canne are you ready? For the people waiting here and the millions around the wurld who wish to be here. Let's get ready to rumble!”

*Chorus of people shouting*

“To my right are the Tortori Vikings who are eager to win their first Vincent Marino trophy while to my left are the current champions who will have to defend their title as Ionian champions. Torre Canne Buccaneers”

*chorus of people shouting*

“And now the moment you've all been waiting for Buccaneers fans.”

Immediately the lights headed to where the various banners of the team's most important victories were installed and the immediately a tarp fell while fireworks were shot from the roof of the stadium and cannon blasts were fired as fans screamed with joy at the banner of the Ionian Bowl 64 victory

“Now let us all sing the Ionian anthem together.”

The singing of the national anthem was being performed by members of the armed forces to commemorate the victims of the war, and everyone was singing the anthem while all over the field was the Ionian flag being flown. At the end of the singing of the national anthem they passed over the stadium the National Aerobatic Patrol staging several stunts. After the show the field was quickly set up so that the game could begin.

“I must say that this year's Kick-off show was good.”

“Yes I must say they handled things well after the bad events that occurred.”

“Yes, but they say the half-time show will be even better”

“Really?”

“Yes. Vincenzo Martinucci will be singing during the half-time show.”

“My God. But I love that synthwave singer. His music is spectacular.”

“Yes but after now Gerardo Romano is going to kick off and then the Bucs have the first drive of the game”

Kicker Gerardo Romano of the Viking Tortors kicked off, marking the start of the 2024 IFL season

Although it was Easter Sunday, the nightclubs were operating at full capacity because of the IFL Monterosso Chief vs. Empoli Jets game. 

A group of friends had decided to follow the game at a club where they could watch Sunday Night Football and enjoy good pizza. They had all met in front of the venue around 8:00 PM and when they entered they could see that the venue was packed with people ready to watch a game.

They approached the counter, and one of them spoke to an employee

"Hello we have reserved a table. Veltri."

"Let me check for a moment."

The employee checked the reservation notebook and saw that there was a reservation

"Yes there you are. You have reserved a table for 5 people. I'll take you right away."

The employee came out of the counter and escorted the group to the table that was in front of a big screen where the pre-game show was being broadcast 

"Here is your table and these are the menu. Have a nice dinner and a good game."

The employee walked away toward the counter while the group of friends sat down and took the menu to read it and figure out what to order

“Shall we get some fritos before the pizza?”


"I don't mind the idea. We can do two large mixed fritos and the pizzas. What shall we have to drink? Beers?

“Yes but since I have to drive I'd rather not drink beer but drink lemonade.”

“Not even a little drop of beer?”

"No. I'd rather drink lemonade. Anyway, the game is about to start."

Everyone looked at the screens to see the kickoff and the start of the game. The Jets had possession of the ball and were advancing to the opposite side of the field to make a touchdown In the meantime, a waitress approached to take orders, and after she took all the orders she walked away as suddenly people started screaming about the Empoli Jets' touchdown.

"It seems that this year Monterosso has little chance of going into the playoffs. Especially when you have a lot of tough teams."

“Today I watched the Rossano Wolves game against Tropea Dolphins and the Wolves destroyed them.”

“Yes but there are also the Titans who are having very good games.”

"Nah. When they get to the end of the regular season the Titans start losing. I weigh that this year the Wolves win."

"I think because we are early in the season making predictions are very wrong. We all saw how early to late season predictions were overturned last year"

While the friends were discussing and the game was going on, the two plates of fritto misto arrived, which included french fries, fried small calzones, fried meatballs, potato croquettes, and Pettole. The friends were starting to eat when Empoli Jets missed a Field Goal and some people shouted no for the lost three points

"That Field Goal was easy. How did it go wrong?"

"Who will know? Probably emotion played a trick on him."

The evening continued and after a few minutes the pizzas arrived and the group of friends began eating them and discussing the game and making predictions about the future of the season.
