Good morning virtual sports fans!
As you will no doubt be unaware, for the past few months, the Mushroom Kingdom has played host to two mildly successful virtual soccer tournaments. These tournaments take the form of watching the involved teams play out a soccer match in a video game, while an uneducated man with a funny accent shouts over them.
If you're an old enough CNer to remember the LUE vs NPO soccer matches, it's the exact same thing. Nothing has evolved in the slightest!
The Castle Fairgrounds Premier League officially gets under way this Tuesday (16th) and competing in the first season are:
- Athens Athletic
- Greenland United
- MK Dons
- O'Samurai United
- Real Vanguard
- Style 386 FC
- Tigris FC
Have fun working out which team is which alliance. Athens Athletic is Athens, I'll give you that one for free.
I will be crossposting the results from my own CFPL blog to here in an ill-fated attempt to garner more interest in the league with a view to opening it up to non-allies for season two, should season one be a success. If this whets your apetite at all - though I can't think why it would - you're very welcome to follow along with us on the MK boards, just ask me for the Fairgrounds mask. Or you can view the matches directly from the CFPL Youtube, missing all the delicious context and banter. Maybe that's the idea.
The CFPL curtain opener will be ready to view this Tuesday, I hope you'll join us then!
