NAPL - Fictional soccer league


Niiklaz

Recommended Posts

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.

3. Detroit Nationals

Looking great so far! How are you simulating this?

Thanks! I've created a simple simulator in excel. Based on each teams stats(0-99) the league table is randomly generated with the better teams having a higher chance of ending up in the top

I've been working on a 60-team, 3-tiered league named the North American Premier League for a little over a year now and I've just been waiting for someone else to come out with a concept of the same name. I do like that you started so early and that the uniforms really reflect that time. Look forward to following this along the way.

I haven't posted it anywhere yet. I'm waiting until I finish so it doesn't become one of those dead threads that never gets updated. I'm about 30-40 teams in right now so it's still a long time away

This is cool, chalk up one more follower!

 

When will clash jerseys come to fruition? Because Toronto-Montreal is hard to tell who's who.

Awesome!

Away jerseys will be used in a season or so as some teams clash with each other

-Philadelphia fights Toronto for the title once again. This time, Philadelphia ends up on top, winning their second title
-Detroit Nationals who has a top team on paper but has been struggling for most of the seasons, has a good season and gets a respectable third Place finish
-Queen City who pretty high expectations on them, finishes in the middle of the table, the best result a newcomer has ever had in their first season in the NAPL
-FC New York with Another dissapointing season
-Columbus finds their way back to the bottom of the table while Chicago is once again dead last

1. Toronto FC
2. Columbus AC
3. Queen City
4. Philadelphia Brothers

-Toronto steals the title back from the defending champions Philadelphia Brothers. They have now won 4 titles in 6 years. The first dynasty in NAPL´s history is formed
-Columbus AC suprises big with their best ever season yet, snagging the 2nd Place
-Queen City show they are here to stay, gets a top 3 finish
-Chicago doesn´t end up last for the first time, instead FC New York does. Are their days as a top team over?

I like the big cross on Charlotte's jersey. I wonder if any real teams do that on a regular basis. I know AC Milan had a white jersey with a big red cross on it briefly, but that's the only real life example I can think of.

I know a few teams that has had a cross on their jersey for a season or so but i´ve never seen the X shape on a jersey. Would be cool though!

How did you use excel for the simulations?

Each team has stats(0-99). I take the overall stat, eg 64, and do this; (64^10/100000000000000000)=11,5. Let´s say the second team gets 6. Add them together and we get 17,5. I have a random number generator that generates numbers between 0 and, in this example 17,5. If a number between 0 and 11,5 gets generated team 1 places first, if it´s between 11,5 and 17,5 team 2 wins etc.
I hope that makes sense lol

-Montreal Sains gets their best finish yet, 3rd Place
-Sporting Nashville ends up in the middle of the table as expected by many
-Queen city suprises in a bad way and gets a bottom 3 Place for the first time in their NAPL history
