Dear all, as those at attended the euros may remember, Scotland has been privilleged with the opportunity to run this years Euros.
However as a small country that loves punching above its own weight, we have decided to throw down the gauntlet to the world, and invite teams freom everywhere. (The first Football world championship took place in Glasgow in 1872, - two teams were involved - think of this in a similar concept..).
This may also be the last chance before we are dragged out of Europe and turned into an island fortress, - so if you want to visit Scotland without having to bring a visa and a red cross aid parcel with you, now is the chance.

The tournament will be in Glasgow. 21st and 22nd September.
Its very easy to get to Glasgow with most countries either flying direct or via a transfer at London.
I recently did Glasgow to melbourne via Dubhi, - so no excuses from Australian or Dubhi players.
The airport has easy links into the city, and its very easy to get around on the underground.

The venue will be the Glasgow University Union in the cities west end.
This is on the underground line, so easy to get to from the city centre, or anywhere on the tube line (3/4 of the city). Accomodation at this time of year is normally very reasonable. - there are budget hotels and hostels all through the west end and city centre, and air bnb is quite reasonable at this time also.

Can you please PM me if you think you can make it - preferably team captains detailing four players, but if you cant find 4 people, we will try to get some mongrel teams together.
The format will be teams of four, - as previous Euros.
I will take bookings on a national basis (i.e every nation gets a team before a nation can get a second team).
(We do not recognise Wales as a country)
The lists will be 3k NET-EA (Epic UK if no NET-EA list is in play)

I will work on sponsership for prizes and to keep the costs as low as possible - probably about £20 per person, which by next year will be about 4 Euros.

In 50 years time this may be the founding event you can tell your grandkids about whilst they watch epic on tv... - or alternatively you can have a good two days worth of cheap student priced drink and decent whisky.

You can safely assume that Dave and myself will be there although as only 2 from the Border Wastelands we may need shoehorning into a team if noone minds? Ill try not to tank all my games this time i promise!

What do we want to do from the UK perspective this time teams wise? I'm assuming we might be looking at an English and Scottish team this time at least, and looking above possibly a team from 'somewhere in between the two' (i.e. from the place that's north to the northeners, but still not scotland)

I'm eligible for Southerners (born & lived there), Northerners (live there now), or Scots (mother's family from there), I reckon. ;D

How about we go old-school - we could have Teams Wessex, Mercia, and Northumbria :)

Of course, the captain of the Northumbrian team would need to be constantly watching is back...

The plan is definitely to have a Scotland team. If only so we get to see a Dan v Monkeyboy Scotland v England game.

Not sure you have sufficient time to get through all the required performance enhancing drugs necessary to play for Russia...
