We all know places like Gotham City, Metropolis or Springfield.
What we don't know is - did they have a football team to root for?
Show your skills and create football teams for cities and nations made famous by literature, cinema, tv, video games...
"Can I create a team for a city I just invented?"
No, they must have at least a "literary" reference. If the reference is not very famous, it has to be shortly explained. Example: "Cabot Cove Murderers", "Hogsmeade Athletic", "Kakariko Center End" are OK, "Paniliakos" is OK too ("Ilion is the Greek name of Troy!") but "F.C. Dkaxjvbay" is not.
"Can I create a national team?"
Sure. Bring on Elbonia, Molvania and the Mushroom Kingdom! Hey: in that case, no other sponsorships than the kit supplier. Like in the real world.
"What kind of entry do y---"
Jersey, logo, full kit. Whatever you're good in.
"Away and third kits too?"
"How many entries?"
Right. But one good entry's better than N>1 poor ones.
May 31, 24:00 (Italian Summer Time, that is 22:00 UTC).
For now, I'll say Best Team Name, Best Logo, Best Jersey, Best Full Kit.
I think that's all. It surely won't be, because of Murphy's Law, but whatever.
P.S.: "WINNERS DON'T USE DRUGS".
(Yes, it's totally unrelated, but I always wanted to end a list of rules like that.)
Gentlemen, this is it. These are (THE CHAAAAMPIOOOONS, cit.) the winners.
Best Team Name: "Greendale Community College Soccer Club".
Best Logo:"Pawnee Soccer Club" spoiler-ish logo. LOL
Best Jersey: Oceania's home kit.
Best Full Kit: "Real Vice City - Home", I love that green-white combo.
Un Certain Regard award: the Utopia combination (after all, that's what this contest was about! :-D) and the Midgard United logo explanation (might I suggest a Cardiff-red kit? :-P)
Next contest...well, I have to finish a couple of things IRL, then I'll start with a new "grand prix".
Any ideas? PM me!
