While Fanfest is already a spectacular event for everyone involved, we have something additional incredible this year: a football match developers vs players before Fanfest!

This event will be held at a proper indoor football center, and of course you are most welcome to join the specatcle!

Read all about this extraordinary (pre-)Fanfest event in CCP Mimic's and CCP Puck's dev blog Fanfest 2015 - Devs vs Players Football Match!

On a positive note I see a bunch of new positions opening up in Nullsec and the CSM as Certain players used to Arm chair commanding fall to Exhaustion from running around xD.. On the negative note I was hoping to see someone actually get tackled until my mind clicked it's soccer .. Which I still Love.. but I was hoping to see some DeV on CSM/Player Smashing :P

This will not be live streamed - but we will have some video footage afterwards. Bus has limited seats available and it's a first come first served. I will get back to everyone with a confirmed seat on the bus to inform them of the pick up location and timing

You should live stream it! Make it part of the "Paid Fan fest" Stream! Give some Capsuleer Service here! Surely there is plenty of time to figure out how to get an announce team up and make this an awesome Player/Dev/Viewing Experience for all those (like me!) who can't make it out there!

Besides, we'd be asking for hell of a lot making people sit through 90 minutes of amateur football via the internet. People are also used to insane amount of production when it comes to live sports. Whatever we would do would look so dull in comparison :P

We're used to TiDi... nothing you do.. could be worse then TiDi! Confidence my Devties.. Confidence! Besides to half the people 90 minutes of Pro Football is Torture! We just wanna see some Devs and players having fun live :P But I can understand.. Keyboard warriors and all don't want to be seen running around on a field.. bad form and all :P

If you want one of the spare seats just state that fact. We will be in touch with you directly to confirm your seat.

I'm actually dreading the match. I haven't played in ~15 years and I have to put down the beer for it :)

Came expecting a real football match. Leaving disappointed.

Just a soccer match with a 0-0 or 0-1 final score. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

(laughs maniacally)

That ought to get those Euros fired up.
