That's right, Fanfest football(soccer!!) returns. This year we plan on doing it differently, but any suggestions or requests are absolutely welcome.

Pitch/Court

We deliberated this one quite a bit. Last year we had it full size, 11v11, and that was a lot of fun. It demanded quite a lot, however, especially when it came to fitness. It also meant that we had a lot of substitutes sitting on the bench at all times, waiting for their chance to play. This year we thought we'd change it up a little bit, and have this take place in our usual court at KR's(Reykjavik FC) indoor handball court. It's the perfect size for a 5-a-side game.

It's about a 15 minute walking distance from the CCP HQ, which makes it way more accessible than the place we booked last year. Remember the bus issues? I do. I'm sure there will be some carpooling as well.

The spectator seating is very limited. There is a broadcast booth above the court that would fit a couple dozen, and there are some telescopic bleachers. The bleachers do cut into the court itself, however, making the game area much smaller when pulled out. We will figure out more when we have a better idea of how many wish to come watch these shenanigans.

There will be locker rooms available for changing and showering.

Teams

"Devs vs Players" is so 2015, so this year we're aiming to have enough devs and players signed up to form 6-8 teams of mixed devs and players, and duke it out tournament style. Any suggestions regarding the tournament format are welcome.

The team organizing will come later once we have a better idea about how many are interested. I'm personally thinking a random draw, but efforts may need to be made to keep teams even.

Tops and boots - what you need to bring.

We won't be going all out with gear this year since there will be so many variations and teams. As such, we will be asking every player that signs up to bring two different colored tops, as many of each color as you like. When the teams have been formed, decisions can be made on colors, but each team will need a darker colored shirt and a white one.

Boots will need to be flat, as we'll be playing on indoor parquet flooring. There will be some vacant Astro-Turf courts outside, so if the weather is uncharacteristically gorgeous we might consider playing out there. If you have spare room and wish to bring cleats just in case, feel free!

Time

Wednesday April 20th, from 11:30 to 14:30!!!

Sign me up, please. :)
To help with team colors, I could bring some colored bibs. Got about 5 each in red, blue and green.
If the tournament should be without eliminations, then I'd suggest a standard scorring table with 3-1-0 points for W-D-L.
Thanks for hosting this! It will be a blast.

Yup, no elimination, just points. Every team plays each team at least once. Then top two can battle for title, and 3rd and 4th battle for 3rd. Something like that. It's fun having a final.

Also the US way of doing things is quite nice, where you do overtime. 2 pts for win and OT win, 1 pt for OT loss, and 0 for loss.

For the sake of transparency I want you all to know that the time isn't 100% decided on. As such, if you have any preferences now is the time to speak up.

Some were thinking Wednesday, before all the shenanigans begin.

Wednesday would be better. Otherwise we would miss all the shenigans on Friday.

Last year's Tuesday was fine as well.

If this is going to clash with FF can we ensure it only clashes with 'community' or non-game presentations. EVE is real kind of stuff I can miss, I can't justify missing out on any 'meat' from FF presentations.
