The Eximius Foedus- Fictional Country's Soccer League - 12/12

Recommended Posts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AC Ridale

Home venue- Ridale City Arena (73,345)

2015 position- 5th

Eximius Foedus championships- 2 (1992,1998)

 

Based in the largest city of the North, and nearby the winding River Vale, is home to one of Spensar's greatest soccer teams of the 20th century. Ridale was home to the early Spensarian republican movement, and is famous for it's sprawling urban landscape and diverse environment.

 

AC Ridale, formerly the Athletic Club Of Ridale, were a foundation club of the National Soccer Federation. They won a record 17 national titles in there time in competition, before in 1989 they were admitted to the Eximius Foedus. Many of there players Pre-Eximius Foedus were the fittest in the competition, because they were involved with the numerous Athletic event meetings held on the weekends around the team's original home ground, Penfold Oval.From the beginning of the Eximius Foedus, they continued there dominance for another decade, until recently, where they have struggled to make and win finals matches. Nowadays, the Athletic Club of Ridale no longer exists, with the team being the last link to the pre-existing hierachy.  The club now plays at a venue built for the quadrennial National Championships for U23 teams, the Ridale City Arena. Known to be very much a sporting city, AC Ridale were the first team to move into the stadium, before other popular outdoor teams the Kangaroos, Renegades and Rapids, showing that they are still very much forefront in popularity in the city.

 

The team also did well on the global stage, making the Quarter Finals of the WFA Championship, only to be eliminated in penalties, after knocking out fellow Eximius Foedus rival FC Antley.

 

The team's home kit is similar to that of the logo's design. The crown of the logo is taken from the original athletic club's logo. Online car marketplace SRAC.com will sponsor the team from 2016 onward.

Great start!  Looking forward to where this goes.   At some point, there's going to need to be a "Champions League" made up of the best and brightest of each of the fictional leagues created.

Completely flawless as always! I like the white shorts instead of black or red. 

Haha cheers mate, there's a few teams with similar colours this year, so I needed them to have a good, working clash.

 

Has anyone noticed SRAC? There motto is "We know cars backwards!" (Hint,hint)

Nagreb SC

Home venue- QEII Stadium (65,589)

2015 position- 3rd

Eximius Foedus championships- 2 (1996,2002)*

*as Nagreb Glory

The Nagreb SC has a strange history. Beginning its life in 1991 as the Nagreb Glory, they were put into the league as the first expansion club. Previously, it had been decided that teams would have to start at the bottom of the ranks and make there way up to the Eximius Foedus, but the former team based in that region, Tri-Cities Soccer Club, had finished last in both seasons of the competition and disbanded. The team was given a very patriotical feel to it, wearing Spensarian two tone blue for there first 4 seasons. They soon transitioned to a deep purple, winning the 1996 title in the colour, thus making it a fan favorite. The team of that year was nicknamed "The Phantoms Of the North", as they managed to steal many a game in stoppage time that season

 

Much like may teams in the Eximius Foedus, Nagreb has won there titles in eras. In between 1996 and 2002, there manager was Spensarian National Team coach Ray Walton, who took them to 4 straight finals series. In 2004, after poor home game attendance at there new (And current) stadium, the team went into receivership and didn't compete in any form of the game for two seasons. In 2007, the club was saved and reformed by the Nagreb public. Instead of the deep purple of the former team, it was decided that the team's nickname would be the Suns and there colours Orange. To avoid the previous situation, the club's board decided to avoid the private ownership path, instead opting for a membership based system. The reformed club had instant success, finishing in the top 6 in there first season. Currently, they look to be very much a threat to Stanly's chance of a three-peat, after finishing second in the regular season of 2015.

 

The club's logo is quite a special part of the new club for some. It has a stylized "soccer ball" sun, on the shape of Tri- State, the state in which the club is based. The sun,is said to represent the  constantly bright and rising talents representing the club, and the club's ability to overcome adversity (The club's mascot is Fred Phoenix, chosen for a similar reason). The ray on the left in the centre is also said to point to where the city of Nagreb is placed in the state. 123 BET have sponsored the club since 2007.

Is there only one tier or is there a second division because I'd really like to see some more teams!

There's a Division 2, yeah. I'll think about it, but first I need to get the last few teams done.

Maclaren United

Home venue-  OneNation Stadium (43,268)

2015 position- 8th

Eximius Foedus championships- 3 (2004,2006,2009)

 

Maclaren United are quite an interesting club, with their best and worst being absolute polar opposites. In 2013, just 4 years after winning there 3rd premiership in 6 years, they were relegated. Returning to the Eximius Foedus in 2015 they were once again disappointing, finishing in 8th position.

 

Based in what is known as the Soccer heartland of the country, Maclaren are one of the youngest clubs in the Eximius Foedus, having only played in the top flight since 2000. Before that, no such club in the region existed. Instead a thriving semi-professional league inside the state functioned, something league officials found far too good to ignore. Fair to say they picked the Big League up quickly, soon becoming the most successful Eximius Foedus team after just a decade. (Of course, Stanly has changed that now...)

Because of Soccer's popularity in the area, Maclaren were able to have some of the league's best in terms of home-grown talent, saving money and giving them a Moneyball type advantage. Recently though, that talent pool as dried, and they have struggled financially with having to purchase big name players

 

Maclaren's state symbol is a Magpie, and this was chosen as the club's mascot, with the team colors being taken form the bird. Last season, white was replaced with beige on the home kit. The design, which hasn't changed since there first Eximius Foedus season, is said to represent the striping of the bird.  Electric Blue was chosen as a tertiary color and has been the club's alternate color since 2009. Spensar Airways continues on as sponsor for the second season.

Stramworth S.C

Home venue- Fletcher Stadium (65,443)

2015 position- 10th

Eximius Foedus championships- 2 (2000,2008)

 

The Stramworth SC are the second team to be based in the city of Stramworth for the 2016 season. Narrowly escaping relegation in 2015, they will be hoping for a season that produces much more success in 2016. There last premiership came in 2008, when they defeated  the North-Vale Football Club after coming from the lowest seed in the Final 6. Since then, the team hasn't made a Finals appearance and has struggled to draw new fans, leading city rivals Citizens SC to recite the old cheer of "The city is yours? The city is yoourrs? 50,000 empty seats, are you F***ing sure!". Traditionally being the biggest club in the East, it appears the tide has begun to turn for "The Blueboys", a long way from the club's glory years of the mid 90's, which ended in an unbeaten 2000 season and the club's first premiership.

 

However, the team currently holds "The Bell", a trophy given to the winner of matches between them and cross-town rivals Citizens SC, defeating them 3-1 in there last encounter.

 

Depicted in the club's logo is the Stramworth Bell Tower, a landmark created by British colonists to celebrate the forthcoming of the colony. Originally the team wore the colours of the British, blue and red, but in 2010 changed to two-tone blue.  The tower is one of the city's biggest spots of tourism

 

In 2016 the club will wear a Breast Cancer Awareness kit as an alternate. Consumer watchdog Market View continues the club's partnership for the third season running as sponsor.

I think for the pink kit you should change the colors from blue to pink so it fits better.
