I started a project and thought I might share it. The goal here isn´t to have a great, in depth storyline, but to progress through the years fairly quickly and make a lot of designs along the way. I will make the season summaries short and simple, especially in the beginning. Background story The year is 1930 and soccer is increasing in popularity, especially in the east. A new league is created with the goal of becoming the major soccer league in the eastern parts of the US and Canada, and maybe even more. The league is given the name North American Premier League, NAPL for short. 1930 4 teams, 3 american and 1 canadian, starts of the inaugural season. 1930 - results 1. FC New York 2. Philadelphia Brothers 3. Detroit Nationals 4. Toronto FC
Hey guys, I'm back with another series! NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY ASSOCIATION This series is inspired by Raysox's World Ice Hockey Federation (I think that's right?). However, instead of focusing on several hockey leagues around the world, this thread has one league compromising of professional hockey teams in North America. TEAMS/ALIGNMENT Hockey teams are drawn from several North American leagues, including the NHL, WHL, OHL and QMJHL, to form a league of fifty teams. There are two conferences, Canadian and American, each consisting of 25 teams. From there, teams are split into five divisions, with five teams per division. LOGOS Logos are inspired by the NHL logo. To have an easier effect on your eyes, gradients were removed and each logo consists of two colors. PLAYOFFS/BRACKETS Out of the 50 teams, 32 teams qualify for the playoffs each year. The winners of each division are given the top five spots in their conference. After that, teams will have to fight for the remaining 11 wild card spots. STANDINGS Seeding is determined by a win-loss record. Tiebreakers include most regulation wins, most goals for, least goals against. If any teams are tied in all of these cases, a tiebreaker game will take place. GAMES Each game will consist of three periods, each twenty minutes long with a fifteen-minute intermission between each. If teams are tied after regulation, they will go into overtime. Overtime is sudden death with five periods lasting fifteen minutes, with a one-minute intermission between each. If a team cannot score in one period, they will move on to the next. Each period of overtime is different. Each one is listed below. *Five minutes of 5 on 5* *Four minutes of 4 on 4* *Three minutes of 3 on 3* *Two minutes of 2 on 2* *One minute of 1 on 1* If teams do not score after overtime, they will proceed to a shootout. During the course of the regular season, each team will play 90 games (45 home, 45 away). *4 games against each divisional teams (16)* *2 games against each team in conference (48)* *2 out-of-conference games against a designated team (2)* *1 out-of-conference game vs. each of the remaining teams (24)* SPECIAL EVENTS During the course of the regular season certain events will take place. *Three Winter Classics, each in select cities, during the first weekend in January* *The Champions Game, an outdoor game that takes place in the city of the reigning champion, versus the runner-up. Takes place at the beginning of the season* *All-Star game in February, American Conference vs. the Canadian Conference* --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SKIP AHEAD TEAMS Anaheim Ducks Arizona Coyotes Barrie Colts Blainville Armada Boston Bruins SPECIAL EVENTS Winter Classic: Chicago
World Cup of Hockey Concepts I made these about a year ago for a design contest on HockeyJerseyConcepts.com and since the world cup logos and jerseys were released last night I thought it might be fun to revisit them now. Now I will be the first to admit, some of these are crap. This was one of my first ventures into Photoshop and also one of the first times I've made a logo, so please keep that in mind when you are criticizing them. I may go back and do the US jersey again without the sash just for the hell of it so keep and eye out for that. Other than that, enjoy my concepts from last year and let me know what you think. #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain (why not)
Hi guys -- longtime lurker, first time poster. This idea came to me a few years ago after being inspired by a couple of really great concepts (Raysox's US Soccer 2030 and Patrick Cummings' America League) and the expansive nature of global football (thanks to all of the FIFA games). As the beautiful game began to grow throughout the world, the powers that be wanted to capture the pageantry and glory of the World Cup and apply it to the club level. Thus the idea for the United Continental Football Association was born. The concept was simply to create a worldwide league based on the 5 major continents: North America, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia-Oceania (Asia + Australia). Each league would have a Championship tier of 20 teams and could fill out lower tiers as they pleased -- but a city was only allowed one team. Each continent would then send its champions to play for the World Continental Cup (WCC) at the end of the year to crown a World champion. After a few rounds of trial and error, the leagues were finalized as follows: North America North American Championship League (20 teams - 4 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) North American B League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) North American C League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) North American D League (24 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) South America South American Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 2 relegation teams) South American B League (12 teams - 2 promotion teams) Africa African Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 2 relegation teams) African B League (12 teams - 2 promotion teams) Europe European Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) European B League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams - 3 relegation teams) European C League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams) Asia-Oceania Asia-Oceania Championship League (20 teams - 3 WCC births - 3 relegation teams) Asia-Oceania B League (20 teams - 3 promotion teams) 10 seasons were played and met with unquestioned success and the UCFL was officially here to stay. I have results for all 10 seasons and plan on posting some fun stuff around the WCC and regional tournaments, but for now, this thread will focus only on the teams in the Championship Leagues going into Season 11. (Feel free to shoot me a note if you are interested in the league tables and process for simulating the leagues) I am only focusing on the North American Championship League at the moment but my goal is to eventually get to the entire world. Here is a preview of the Championship Leagues -- the teams I will be posting can be found in the far left column (the rest are just the city names): Just so you all know, the cities and structure are set in stone and the teams in the championship leagues are based off of 10 seasons of simulation -- not by personal choice or bias. Hope you all enjoy this series and looking forward to your C&C/feedback.
