Season 12 Owners Meetings highlighted by separation of domestic cups between Banija and the Busoga Islands

BSL owners take a picture before entering Season 12 RBSA Owners meetings


BUSUKUMA, NATIONAL CAPITOL REGION- The Owners Meetings for Season 12 have come and gone, with the country(well, the countries) getting ready for what should be another exciting season of football. Banijan clubs were active in the transfer Window as they prepared for this upcoming season, with a number of clubs seemingly declaring themselves ready to make the leap, in whatever form that may be. There will be one major format change this season, however.

Last season, The Busoga Islands Soccer Association attempted to establish a domestic cup for the six Busoga Islander sides in the Banijan pyramid. After a compromise between BISA and the RBSA that did not allow for qualification to the Cup Winners Cup. But after further discussions between BISA and the RBSA, they have come to a compromise, acceptable to the clubs, that was able to give BISA what they want- a national competition within the confines of the Banijan pyramid.

This will occur by separating the domestic cups. The RBSA and BISA issued a joint statement after reaching yet another compromise deal. "Last season, we reached the core principles of a deal that would allow for the separation of domestic cup competitions. While Ownership did not approve, we believe this year's deals, with those same core principles, will allow us to truly get what we want. The core principle, of course, is that the pyramid remains a single-association league- we have not, and will never, try to be a multi-associational league under our present setup. All teams are members of the RBSA, including the 6 Busoga Islander sides, and that is how it should remain. There will be no seperate qualification for IFCF competition. Furthermore, BISA's tournament shall not be used to qualify for any international tournament besides the Cygnus Cup Winners Cup. If, in the unlikely possibility that the competition becomes one that contributes to IFCF ranking points, BISA involvement shall automatically cease, unless it gets the approval of ownership."

Various clubs that opposed the move last time around, now that the competition qualifies for the Cygnus Cup Winners Cup, now support the decision. The Busembe Timberwolves came out in favor of the proposed compromise, as well as did Mynda Electra. Lakiska SC, the biggest club on the Busoga Islands who opposed the decision last time, enthusiastically welcomed this compromise, saying that the deal 'paved a path to a legitimate Islander competition, while keeping the footballing bonds between the Islands and Banija." The plan passed with relatively little opposition. The change will be effective immediately, for this season and going forward.

The RBSA announced how they would change their tournament, which would now become a 62 team cup. They said, every year, 2 teams would get a bye to the Round of 32- the defending BSL Champion, and the defending RBSA Cup winner. If they are the same team, the second place team in the league would get a bye. And then, before the league season started, all of the other 60 teams would participate in the Preliminary Round. 30 winners, plus the 2 teams that had a bye, go to the Round of 32, which would keep the same scheduling as previously. So it'd mean just 1 preseason preliminary round, instead of two right now, but it'd invite more chaos as essentially everyone would participate. They also said that the two teams with byes would not play each other in the Round of 32, and would be guaranteed home games for that first round. All matches would continue to be played at home grounds except for the Final, which remains at the Stadium of the Restoration.

BISA, although they haven't named their tournament, announced how their tournament would work. The 6 Busoga Islander sides would participate in a 6 team, double elimination tournament. In both tournaments, of course, there would be no draws or replays- every match must have a winner. No neutral site matches at any point in BISA's tournament. Ownership was nearly unanimous behind the new arrangement, with both Banijan and Busogan clubs saying that this could make both tournaments stronger.

The second major order of business came just from the BSL. We will host the All-Star Game for the second consecutive season. Randolf Cherry announced, after last season's game at the Stadium of the Restoration, that teams would be able to bid on hosting the all-star game. While the BSL did not officially announce all the stadia that bid, the frontrunners were Tiones Lumber Field at the Wolf's Den in Busembe, Electra Stadium in Mynda, BCEL Stadium in Jinja City, Hangaza Unified Stadium in Aissa, and Kabonero III Field in Istria. After much debate, the ownership agreed to award the hosting rights to the All-Star Game to Hangaza Unified Stadium in Aissa, capacity of 55,000. Randolf Cherry said that he's 'excited' for the game to go out East.

The last order of business, was a proposal from Lakiska SC- end the ban on non-humans within the Banijan pyramid. The six Busoga Islander sides, and some of the BSL's larger sides, like Herzegovina City FC, argued in favor of it. They said that right in the Glorious Southwest, there was an 'abundance' of non-human talent that could be scouted out in Equestria, as well as Valanora. They said that doing so would greatly improve the competitiveness of the Banijan Soccer League. And they said it was an issue of fundamental fairness. All six Busoga Islander sides voted yes, as well as 10 BSL sides. However, there was a mass of opposition within the regional leagues. Many said that doing so would simply increase the gap between the 'haves and have-nots', and that it would not be right within Banija for humans to play with non-humans. Only 20 total teams voted in favor of the proposal, which means that in addition to the 10 BSL sides who opposed it, 38 out of the 43 Banijan sides in the regional leagues voted against the proposal.

Interesting times ahead, eh? And now, with the ownership meetings out of the way, Season 12 of the BSL is almost upon us. Who's ready?

The Banijan Soccer League - Season 12 Basic Information Part I

Image



The Royal Banijan Soccer Association(RBSA) is proud to present the Banijan Soccer League to the sporting world for its 12th season. The Banijan Soccer League was formed after Banijan entry into WCC competition. After nearly 70 years of state leagues, it was demanded that Banija's football system needed to 'catch up' to the rest of the world, and their abomination in their first ever World Cup competition, a winless World Cup 73 cycle where the national team lost all 12 Qualifying matches, saw that demands were reasonable. Therefore, the RBSA, which had not sponsored national competition up to this point, decided to back the creation of a national league. Originally titled the Premier Soccer League, before being retitled to the Banijan Soccer League, they picked the 16 'financially strongest' teams to compete in the league, and added four in Season 2, to make it a 20 team league. While national competition is still quite fresh in Banija, the league has quickly risen up the charts, as the league's quality and rather aggressive marketing tactics seem to be paying off.

The Banijan Soccer League, is the top division of soccer in both Banija and the Busoga Islands, competing with gridiron football to be Banija's most popular sport. The Banijan Soccer League consists of 20 teams. After four BSL seasons, the RBSA moved to streamline state leagues and form four regional leagues, and add them to the official RBSA Banijan soccer pyramid. The Banijan Soccer League is a double round-robin league-style competition. The 62 Banijan teams will compete in the RBSA Cup as their domestic cup competition, while the 6 Busoga Islander clubs will participate in the Ebrahim Razav Cup as their domestic cup competition.

The format for the RBSA Cup is as follows. 2 teams will get byes to the Round of 32, the defending BSL Champion and the defending RBSA Cup winner. The other 60 will play in the first round, and the 30 survivors will join the 2 trophyholders in the Round of 32, and it shall remain a single knockout competition all the way through the Final. Each round, besides the final, has opponents that are decided completely at random, and with the home side being chosen randomly as well. The Final will be held, after the conclusion of the league season and the BSL Promotion Playoffs, at the Stadium of the Restoration, as the final game played of the domestic season every year. The Ebrahim Razav Cup, named after the first ever President of the Busoga Islands, will be a double elimination seeded tournament between the 6 Busoga Islander sides. No neutral site games- all games will be held at the home stadium of the higher seed for every single matchup.

There is limited promotion/relegation within the league- the best regional league champion, as decided in a playoff between the four regional league champions, is promoted, and the last place team in the Banijan Soccer League is relegated every season. However, there is a rule known as the Corizova exception- if the same team wins their regional league for three consecutive seasons, they will earn automatic promotion to the Banijan Soccer League, and the BSL Promotion Playoff will not occur. The winner of the previous Banijan Soccer League and the RBSA Cup open each season with the Kabaka's Cup, which is the Banijan supercup. The game's competitors this year will be Herzegovina City FC and Umbazi Metropolitan SC. This will be the first time in four seasons that both teams in this game are BSL sides. After, for marketing purposes, holding this game the last two seasons in Eshan and the Royal Kingdom of Quebec, the game is finally brought back to the Stadium of the Restoration.

Banijan clubs participate in all sorts of international club competitions, including all IFCF Competitions. They also participate in the Vilitan Cove International, the Islands Invitational, and the Atlantian Oceania Champions League.

The league is traditionally dominated by the 'Super 5' clubs- Istria City FC, Herzegovina City FC, Busukuma AC, Hoima Warriors, and Jinja City FC, that are Banija's 5 biggest teams in Banija's 5 biggest cities. On the by and large, the Super 5 are the wealthiest, most well-supported, and generally the most competitive teams within Banija.

Major Rivalries


Istria City Derby between Istria City FC and Rukunbi FC

This is a derby within Banija's biggest city, and it is the country's oldest rivalry- Istria City FC and Rukunbi FC both having played each other a number of times, well before the establishment of the Banijan Soccer League. There is no love lost between these pair of crosstown rivals. Istria City FC is the bigger side, the fancier and glitzier side, with a league title under its belt, an appearance in the UICA Globe Cup knockout stages under its belt, and competing every season to be the best. It has prime real estate on the coastline, and one of the newer stadiums in Banija, in Kabonero III Field. As for Rukunbi FC, they play in the Rukunbi District, which is the Eastern part of town, and the lower income part of the city. Their fans are known for making an intimidating home atmosphere, and are certainly considered Banija's most violent fanbase. So it's always a fun one when these two meet.

The first BSL high point of this rivalry came in Season 6, when Rukunbi FC beat Istria City FC 2-0 in a massive upset at home, and the fans, excited over the major victory, stormed the field. They had to, after that, play a game behind closed doors on their home field. The two clubs also tangled, of course, when both put their stadiums forward to host matches in World Cup 81, though it was Kabonero III Field that won out over Eastern Stadium, whcih is an older stadium. Expect fireworks every time these two play, cause you'll never know what you'll get. Season 10 saw the rivalry reach a peak again. A large 6-1 win early in the season by Rukunbi FC over their hated rivals stunned observers as Rukunbi FC were shockingly threatening to make a title challenge. While they considerably cooled in the league race, the two teams met in the RBSA Cup Final now two seasons ago, with Rukunbi FC triumphing at the Stadium of the Restoration by a score of 2-0. Istria is theirs, for now.

Battle for Hangaza's Soul between Jinja City FC and Aissa United Football Club

This is a hot blooded rivalry between the two BSL sides from the Hangaza region. Jinja City FC, the region's big and historically dominant side, from the region's largest city and one of Banija's largest city's in general, and the team from Aissa United FC, the regional capital, and a much smaller city. The rivalry, as one might imagine, is usually dominated by Jinja City FC, but arguably the rivalry's most famous moment came courtesy of Aissa United.

In Season 5, the title race was coming down to Jinja City FC and Istria CIty FC. On the second to final matchday, Istria City FC had 82 points, while Jinja City FC had 83. Istria City FC had a draw- so entering the nightcap, a Jinja City FC victory would leave them needing only a draw on Matchday 38 to win the league. However, Aissa United, away from home, stunned the league leaders 1-0, who then finished in second place on goal difference. A mere point in this game, then, would have won them the league- and that's the closest they've come to their second BSL title since, which is a considerable point of pride for Aissa United. Their matches, since then, have always been high intensity.

The Southern Rumble between Busukuma Athletic Club and the Hoima Warriors

The Southern Rumble is a rivalry between the two Super 5 clubs in the southern part of the country- Busukuma AC and the Hoima Warriors. With Hoima really bereft of a local derby, and Busukuma AC not paying much attention to their local rivals in the Busukuma Force, this one has emerged as the chief rivalry for both teams. They compete on and off the fields, especially in the SOuthern Ankole region, for fans, for players, for all kinds of ways to demonstrate their supremacy.

Busukuma AC, of course, at least has won a title in the past five seasons- the Warriors cannot say the same. There's not really a defining moment in this rivalry, as they've never really competed for trophies at the same time, nor has one side derailed the other in a title race, or anything of that sort, but we know that all this rivalry needs is a spark. Once you lit the match, it can really come off here between two of Banija's Super 5 clubs.

Herzegovina City Derby between Herzegovina City FC and Herzegovina Phoenix

The Phoenix were one of the four expansion sides in Season 2,and they immediately developed a rivalry with the other local club side, Herzegovina City FC. Since, over the course of the last 6 seasons, Herzegovina City FC have almost certainly been Banija's most dominant side, with 4 league titles and a pair of UICA Champions Cup group stage appearances in that era, the Phoenix have been chasing. They've played in numerous high profile matches, especially in Seasons 6 and 7, when the Phoenix were in regular contention for the top four.

The most famous moment on the Herzegovina City side, is when they clinched the league title against the Phoenix in Season 6, with a stunning victory on Matchday 33 over their archrivals, en route to the BSL's only ever undefeated season. For the Phoenix, it probably had to be a thrilling 3-2 victory in the Kabaka's Cup that kicked off Season 4, to earn a trophy for the 2nd season in a row, but this one at the expense of their city archrivals.

North v. South Battle between Istria City FC and Herzegovina City FC

This is part of the larger rivalry between the cities of Istria and Herzegovina City, the two largest cities, and two epicenters, of the Moravica region. Istria, Banija's largest city, and Herzegovina is the oldest city- and the regional capital. The rivalry is perhaps best expressed in the college sports edition of the rivalry, when Northern Moravica, from Herzegovina City, and Loyola-Istria, from Istria, play against each other. But that rivalry is part of the rivalry between the two cities in general, and how can it ever be expressed better than on the pitch?

The high point of this rivalry is probably Season 5, when Istria City FC ended Herzegovina City's quest for a three-peat in the league, by winning their first, and to date, only BSL title. In the RBSA Cup Final that same season, they met in the Final, with Istria City FC looking to become the first ever BSL side to complete a league/cup double. This was not going to happen, however, as the two played a 4-4 thriller, with then Herzegovina City manager Kolt Freegan lifting the trophy high after winning on penalties. Their rematch in the Kabaka's Cup to open the next season saw Istria City FC take its revenge, with the rivalry being solidified between two of the league's top sides.

Battle of the Islands between Dukuma SC and Lakiska SC

This is the rivalry between the two sides from the Busoga Islands- Dukuma SC, and Lakiska SC. Historically, these were the only two sides from the islands to be in the Banijan Soccer League, and even with the addition of the pyramid, and the independence of the Busoga Islands as their own country, this remained to be true. However, these two teams usually hovered towards the bottom of the league table, and therefore ,the rivalry, while fierce locally, has never had any real national implication.

Of course, things are going to change. While in Season 7, they both survived, they took wildly divergent paths in Season 8. While Lakiska SC rose a stunning 12 spots up the table, into 5th, it was Dukuma SC who descended, once again, and only won 2 games out of 38 on the season. Earning only 15 points, they finished last, and were the sole team relegated. The path up is brutal, as only one of the 68 get promoted on annual basis. And, of course, Dukuma SC is an utter and absolute mess, as was seen last season. Who knows when Dukuma will get promoted again to renew the rivalry? That is unknown, but Lakiska is now primed to be the lone Islander side in the top flight for a number of years, and we'll see what that means the next time this rivalry is renewed, at whatever point that might be.

Capitol City Derby between Busukuma Athletic Club, Capitol City FC, and Busukuma Force

With Capitol City Football Club having finally been promoted to the big-time, where they've long felt they've belonged, the three capitol city sides are going to be in the middle of a fight for who will rule Busukuma. Busukuma Athletic Club has all the obvious advantages- the money, the history, the prestige(they've got that fancy BSL Season 7 trophy that cannot be taken from them). Busukuma AC and Capitol City FC are historic rivals, playing each other fiercely before the establishment of the Banijan Soccer League took the game national. They've always had vastly different cultures, with Capitol City FC being more of a countercultural, extremely left-wing club. Some would call them similar to Rukunbi FC, but that would be a lacking comparison.

They are liked by lots of young people, and have one of the few fanbases in the BSL that are avowedly left-wing politically. They were very radically anti-Matthias Mutebi when he ruled in Banija, and while they don't go so far as calling for secularization of Banija, many of their fans consider themselves strong economic leftists. Their diverse fanbase has made large in-roads to the Farfadillis refugee population living within the country. But the impetus for this three way rivalry has to be Season 2. When the BSL, after a successful first season of national play, expanded from 16 teams to 20, it was always clear that the capitol would get a second club. But instead of Capitol City FC getting the spot, an expansion club was started that was called the Busukuma Force, who have maintained a BSL spot ever since. Capitol City FC hasn't played either capitol side in almost two decades, and the Force they've never played.

But now that they are finally up, they have bones to pick. Capitol City FC against the Force, as Capitol City believes they should have been up this whole time. Capitol City against Busukuma AC, as that is the historic capitol derby. And, of course, Busukuma AC against the Busukuma Force, as that rivalry has grown as they've played each other at least twice a season for the last 9 seasons, including last season where the Force almost finished ahead of Busukuma AC in the league table for the first time ever. Three sides who seem tailor made not to like each other. When the top flight derbies really get going, it will be that much more interesting.

National Stadium
The Stadium of the Restoration
Image
The National Stadium. Location: Busukuma. Capacity: 91,835.

The national stadium is the center of the Banijan sporting universe. Built on the site of the first restoration of the Banijan monarchy, it is both a great piece of sporting architecture, as well as a place meant to honor Banija's monarchy. Therefore, the funerals and coronations of monarchs all happen at this stadium. The old stadium at the site held all kinds of matches, including, but not limited to, the World Bowl 34 Final, the NSCF 17 Championship Game, and a UICA Globe Cup Final. The building also serves as the home stadium for both the national soccer team and the national gridiron team. In anticipation for Banija co-hosting World Cup 81, the stadium was rebuilt by a Siovanijan & Tueslander firm, to make it state of the art to host the opening match of the most popular tournament in the multiverse. As the national stadium, the RBSA Cup Final, the Promotion Playoff Final, and the Kabaka's Cup are all held at this stadium on an annual basis. This stadium has also hosted a Baptism of Fire Final, a Cup of Harmony Final, and the World Bowl XXXVII Final as well.

Banija's Regional Soccer Leagues - Season 8 Basic Information


The Royal Banijan Soccer Association is proud to present the second layer of Banija's soccer pyramid in both Banija and the Busoga Islands- the Regional League system. The Northwestern League, the Lower Coastal League, the Northern League, and the Southern League, combine to criss-cross the two nations. Each of the four leagues are fully professional.

This will be the eighth season of full integration of the Regional League System into the Banijan soccer pyramid. These are the leagues where RBSA participants in the IFCF Liga B Champion's Trophy come from. One team is promoted from the regional leagues to the BSL each and every season. All four league champions enter a promotion playoff, where they are randomly drawn against each other for two-legged ties. The two winners play a one-off final at the Stadium of the Restoration, and the winner is the sole team promoted to the Banijan Soccer League. The three regional league champions who do not get promoted qualify directly to the Serie B Champions CupLiga B Champion's Trophy. AFC Kosactus competes outside of their assigned region(Moravica) by competing in the Northern League, and Abomfa United(Buganda) competes in the Lower Coastal League instead of the Southern League due to the promotion of Capitol City FC to the BSL. This is also the first season since the beginning of promotion/relegation that all of a region's teams are in the regional leagues, as the Bunyoro region no longer has any teams in the BSL.

Bunyoro RSC, even though generally assigned to the Southern League, will compete in the Northern League, and Koksho City(Aksum), will compete in the Northwestern League, as a result of Suwawa FC's promotion and Bunyoro RSC's relegation.

The Banijan Soccer League - Season 12 Summer Roundup

Image



HOIMA, ANKOLE- What are the highlights for this summer? Well, of course, with the IFCF up and running, it was the preliminaries of international club competition! IFCF competition, as well as the Atlantian Oceania Champions League, Cygnus Cup Winners Cup, and the Vilitan Cove International all kicked off in the summer. It was quite the summer for Banijan clubs. Let's get right into it!

And without further ado... Your summer roundup!

1. Herzegovina City FC

IFCF Champions League Preliminary Rounds
Herzegovina City earned a bye from the First and Second Preliminary Rounds. Will enter competition in the Champions Path.
Third Preliminary Round- Champions Path

Opponent- Fighters of Plane of Possibility. First Leg: FIghters 1-5 Herzegovina City. Second Leg: Herzegovina City 2-2 Fighters.
Herzegovina City advance 7-3 on aggregate to the Playoff Round of the Champions League. Fighters are eliminated from the Champions League and advance to the Playoff Round of the Challenger's Cup.
Playoff Round- Champions Path
Opponent- Sheriff Tiraspol of Prindestrovia. First Leg: Sheriff Tiraspol 1-1 Herzegovina City. Second Leg: Herzegovina City 0-0 Sheriff Tiraspol.
Herzegovina City advance 1-1(1-0) on away goals to the group stages of the Champions League. Sheriff Tiraspol are eliminated from the Champions League and advance to the group stages of the Challenger's Cup.
Atlantian Oceania Champions League
Herzegovina City earned a bye from the AOCL Preliminary Rounds, into the competition proper. Therefore, did not compete in the summer in this competition.


And now, for the champions and the Champions League! Herzegovina City making yet another Champions League appearance, after another title campaign under Brian Emerson. The task for them was straightforward, although not at all simple. They needed to be successful in two playoff rounds in the Champions League to make the group stages of the IFCF CL. Their first opponent were the domestic champions of the Plane of Possibility- Fighters. Herzegovina City were heavy favorites going in, and it was easy to see why.

The first leg was an absolute masterclass on how to overwhelm an overmatched opponent. Christos Tsiavis opened the scoring in the 27th minute, to make it 1-0. Rosie Tyler scored the team's second goal, in the 44th minute, to make the score 2-0. When the home side scored in the 60th to make it 2-1, though they had hope. Even though Herzegovina City led on away goals, a 2-1 loss at home was hard to overcome, but it wasn't a death knell. But Herzegovina City simply did what they do to the weaker teams in the BSL. They straight up overpowered Fighters. Three goals in the final 25 minutes, from Walcott, Tyler, and Roux, buried them 5-1 on their home ground. Of course, they would need at least 5 goals at Star Field to overturn the score, and that was never happening, as a 2-2 draw in North Moravica saw Herzegovina City through to the next round.

Then came the much tougher matchup- the champions of Pridnestrovia. Sheriff Tiraspol felt as if they had a good case to make to make the group stages of this competition, although Herzegovina City were almost becoming used to be an IFCF group stage fixture. But we'd have the ride of our lives. An early goal by Rosie Tyler in the 13th minute away from home gave us an early advantage, and crucially, an away goal. While a Tiraspol penalty brought the game level in the 55th, it would finish at 1 goal a piece. Neither team was able to break the other down in the second leg at Star Field- even a relatively effective counter-attack breaking up the onslaught of Tiraspol players, searching desperately for a goal of their own. Neither found one, and therefore the BSL champions advanced to the group stages on away goals.

2. Hoima Warriors

IFCF Champions League Preliminary Rounds
Hoima Warriors earned a bye from the 1st Round. Will enter competition in the Non-Champions Path.
Second Preliminary Round- Non Champions Path

Opponent- Venvidicci of Filindostan. First Leg: Hoima Warriors 3-0 Venvidicci. Second Leg: Venvidicci 0-1 Hoima Warriors
Hoima advances to the Third Preliminary Round of the Champions League, 4-0 on aggregate.
Third Preliminary Round- Non Champions Path
Opponent- Kionao Locals of Turori. First Leg: Hoima Warriors 0-0 Kionao Locals. Second Leg: Kionao Locals 1-1 Hoima Warriors.
Hoima advances to the Playoff Round of the Champions League, 1-1(0-1) on away goals.
Playoff Round- Non Champions Path
Opponent- North Hall of Brenecia. First Leg: Hoima Warriors 1-1 North Hall. Second Leg: North Hall 0-0 Hoima Warriors.
Hoima is eliminated from the Champions League on away goals, 1-1(1-0). Advance to the Qualifying Round of the IFCF Challenger's Cup.
IFCF Challenger's Cup Preliminary Rounds
Qualifying Round of the IFCF Challenger's Cup
Opponent- Mar Sara FC of Valanora. First Leg: Hoima Warriors 2-3 Mar Sara FC. Second Leg: Mar Sara FC 1-2 Hoima Warriors.
Mar Sara FC advances 4-4(3-2) on away goals. Hoima Warriors are eliminated from the IFCF Challenger's Cup.
Taeshani Islands Invitational
All matches occured during the season, so there was no summer competition in this tournament for the Hoima Warriors.


The second place team in the BSL! Back in the Champions League for the first time in 10 seasons, the competition where they feel they belong. Taking the non-champions path in the Champions League, however, is a treacherous road. The Champions path is much preferred- it's always the best team in a league, but the best team from smaller leagues. But in this path, you're playing the second and third best teams from the world's biggest leagues, and it can be notoriously tricky to try and navigate it.

But the Warriors would gave it their best shot. Mark Grayson came to Banija, all those years ago to the Herzegovina Phoenix, because of his ambition- and he's confident Hoima can become the third team in BSL history to win multiple league titles. Anyways, their first opponent was Venvidicci of Filindostan. It looked like a fairly even matchup, but a stellar first leg at Mavuto Field ended this tie before it begun. Lukas Boldfont did not wait long to score his debut goal for the Warriors, as he scored in the 15th minute, while both Josef Lawerenz and Ozolx-Mazur scored in the first half as well. 3-0 in the first leg, and a 52nd minute away goal in the second leg by 35 year old longtime center back Wenceslaw proved to be the difference on the day.

Their next opponent would be probably of a higher caliber- the Kionao Locals of Turori. Once again, Hoima would be the unseeded side, meaning the first leg on their own field. These late summer matchups, eh? So much heat in Hoima for the first leg. 93 degrees Farenheit on the day, high humidity. Not much energy from players on either side. The fact that the game ended 0-0 was a surprise to nobody- players cramping up, players could barely move. That led to the second leg in Turori, with more bearable temperatures. While the Locals scored in the 51st to take a 1-0 lead, the Warriors kept fighting, and it would be substitute Babaja Mboob, who had come on for Ozolx-Mazur, who scored in the 82nd minute to make it 1-1, but giving his side the away goal that could stunned the Turori side. And the game finished at that score- the Warriors, on away goals, advancing to one round away from their first ever Champions League group stage appearance.

Their opponent? North Hall, of Brenecia. The Brenecian side, for obvious reasons, would be heavily favored going into the match. But Mavuto Field would be packed to the brim for the big-time opponent. It's not every day a Brenecian side comes into town with a spot in the Champions League on the line, right? The Warriors would score the opening goal, an Underwood penalty giving them a 1-0 lead. But they could not hold on. North Hall continued to apply pressure, until they finally broke through in the 71st minute to level the game at 1, and give themselves the advantage on away goals. Going into the second leg with the advantage, the North Hall squad rallied behind their home fans, and suffocated the Warriors attack for 90 minutes, to earn their way into the knockouts.

Disappointment for the Warriors. But it wasn't over yet! They had a tie left to try and qualify for the group stages of the Challenger's Cup. But they'd have an interesting opponent- Mar Sara FC, of Valanora. No flying all the way to Esportiva, or even the other side of AO- nope, a GSW v. GSW matchup. And a chaotic matchup it was. Mar Sara FC winning the first leg, a wild showdown, three goals to two in Hoima. But the Warriors coming back, taking a 2-0 lead at halftime in Valanora, on the brink of the upset. But Mar Sara FC had a backbreaker- when Apoxian Harlem Saxstrom scored in the 88th minute. The Flames still lost the match, 2-1, but since it was 4-4 on aggregate, they'd advance 3-2 on away goals. A gut-wrenching elimination- but it was so for Hoima. Still, they showed quite a bit this summer. Can they overcome Herzegovina City during the season?

The Banijan Soccer League - Season 12 Review

Image


BUSUKUMA- And now, of course, it is time for the annual Season in Review! We'll talk about how teams and their fanbases are feeling on this past season, based on how they performed during league play. We will categorize all 20 league sides. Without further ado!

BSL Champions- Istria City FC

The champions, of course, go into their own category. Why? They're the champs, that's why. This is the ultimate goal. Everyone wants to be them. And yet, nobody else won the league.

They obviously had a great season- they won their first league title since Season 5, and they did it in a fashion that was so unapologetic-ally Istria City. In recent seasons, the biggest club in Banija's biggest city has had a distinct identity- get forward, press with the ball, and score lots of goals. They've consistently been right at, or very near, the top of the team goals scored lists ever since Alvin Burnsides, the Cosumarite manager, took the reigns at this club.

Of course, the defense has often lagged behind the offense. And that has created some problems for them. They've been good enough to finish in a Challenger's Cup position, for example, but never quite had enough defense to really challenge for the title. But they made some signings. They upgraded in the net, adding Hibbaan al-Shareef, the Busoga Islands national teamer. Younger players like Alanso Tibamba took huge steps forward, and all of a sudden, this was a team that clicked. The offense, of course, was better than ever- 123 league goals in 38 games, shattering the prior BSL record. Assefa Yitebarke, at age 36, who retired from the national team early to focus on his club career, scoring 34 goals in the last campaign of his career.

Their already stellar offense was better than ever. And their defense improved as well- instead of one of the worst defenses, they had the second best defense in the league. And they were handsomely rewarded for it- a league title, and an automatic berth in the group stages of next year's Champions League. They're going to need a star striker to replace Yitebarke's production up top. But they're going to double down on what got them here- lots of offense, lots of pressing. And why shouldn't they? They've got the trophy in their hands- heaven knows it's a strategy that works, right?

Happy with Results- Hoima Warriors, Busukuma AC, Umbazi Metropolitan SC, Busembe Timberwolves, Herzegovina Phoenix, Lakiska SC, Rukunbi FC

Of course, we have a number of clubs in the "happy with results" category. And that makes sense- you don't necessarily have to win a title to be happy with the results you achieved. All of these clubs, for one reason or another, have some sort of reason to be happy with how they performed, across all competitions, In Season 12. The Hoima Warriors- we'll start with them. They're an ambitious club, of course. They've had a long climb back from the wilderness. But now, they can taste success- it is the second straight season that they finished in second, and have qualified for the Champions League.

Of course, last season they couldn't make the group stages of either IFCF competition. Better luck to them next season, aye? But consistently being a Champions League club is where this club wants to be. Busukuma AC is also happy with results. Why, you say? You'd think they wouldn't be happy with sixth place again? But alas, they are. They remember how bad it got between Seasons 8-10, the three seasons after their league title. They in a prime position to make a true challenge for an IFCF berth next year- they just need to stay the course. Plus, their defense was impressive. They allowed the fewest goals in the season, conceding just 37 times, and made a quality run in the Vilitan Cove International, making the quarterfinals of the competition.

The other sides in this category are more mid-table clubs who landed where they expected- not in an IFCF place, but in the top half of the table. Umbazi Metropolitan SC, for example, got 7th place and won the Kabaka's Cup, a season after winning the RBSA Cup. Can't complain with another trophy, right? The Herzegovina Phoenix once again found their proper place in the top half of the table, as the Timberwolves did the same. The Timberwolves, of course, also won the RBSA Cup, bringing their foreign ownership group a fancy trophy. Lakiska SC found its way back to the top half of the table, finishing in 10th. They'd like to do a bit more than that, but 53 points is right at expectation level for them. Rukunbi FC are also happy with results- perenially a mid-table club, they made a change at the managerial position for the first time since pre-nationalization, and had 39 year old Ibea Obasi, the nephew of longtime manager Teague Spanos, take the reigns. They didn't take a step back, which is all they wanted as they try to move forward.

Not happy with results because of loaded expectations- Herzegovina City FC, Kitara Athletic Association, Jinja City FC

Now, of course, there are two types of not happy with results- and we've got to separate those from each other. The first, are the teams who aren't happy with how they finished, but only because they weren't the best. 3/4s of the league would kill to be these teams. And that's where we have the three aforementioned clubs. Herzegovina City has six league titles in this league's 12 year history. They've had an insane amount of success. Of course the expectation is a league title every year. And they didn't get it. Furthermore, although they were due to qualify directly for the Challenger's Cup group stage, due to a record amount of entries, they were bumped all the way down to the 3rd Preliminary Round of the Challenger's Cup, meaning they need to win three two-legged ties to make the group stages of that next season.

That is, of course, possible- Jinja City won 5 of those last season, and Istria City won four. But still. They're a good squad however. They had some real success in last year's Champions League, being the first ever Banijan club to win their IFCF Champions League group. So they can hang their hat there. Jinja City FC, of course, had won the title in Season 10. They had success too. They, as we mentioned, started in the 1st Preliminary Round of the Challenger's Cup, won five playoff ties to make the group stages of the competition, and made it to the knockout stage of the competition as well. That run took out so much energy from Mór Császár's squad, as they started out sluggish, but finished strong to make the Challenger's Cup once again. They were hoping, of course, for a Champions League berth. Expect them to use the offseason to build depth in the back, as Jalang Ba and Jinkzta Ulcviecel were both 35.

The team that may be most disappointed is the Kitara Athletic Association. Now, they shouldn't necessarily be- they've now almost certainly established themselves as a fixture to compete for IFCF berths, alongside and against the Super 5 clubs(Istria City FC, Herzegovina City, Busukuma AC, Jinja City, and Hoima Warriors). They thought they were ready for the Champions League. Spending all that money on Ronald Mickel thought they may get there. But they couldn't. But- they still are in the Challenger's Cup for next year. Still a strong season. They're rumored to be leading contenders for Gitonga Kahara, as the national team captain hits the transfer market. Can they really supercharge expectations for next season by bringing Kahara to a country where he has never played professionally- his country of birth?

Exceeded Expectations- Suwawa FC, Askatasuna FC

Now, there are two teams in this category. Its' hard to write exceeding wildest expectations if you finish in the back half of the table. And yet, here is Suwawa FC. Why? This was their first season up in the BSL. They were expected to be competing to barely avoid the BSL's sole relegation spot. Instead, they had an extremely strong debut season, and finished all the way in 11th. A quality season. Of course, they could easily regress next season. They're going to have to stay on top of things- clubs like Suwawa FC are always threatened by relegation. And considering how hard it is to get back up to the BSL, it's best to simply stay up here.

They'll do what they can to try and find somebody to strengthen the squad. They want to become like Hawabark- first an outsider, now the Boulders are essentially a fixture in the BSL. That's Suwawa FC's goal- can they use this season to catapault them to achieve that goal?

The other team in this category is Askatasuna FC. For years, we continued to predict them to be the squad that would get relegated. And while they hovered around the relegation zone, they've always managed to stay inside the Banijan Soccer League. And now, with a 13th place finish, it was their best finish in quite a while. 13th is nothing to smile at, right? Look at it like this. In Season 4, they finished in 9th. In Season 5, 15th. In Seasons 6-11, they finished somewhere between 17th and 19th. Six straight seasons, they would've been relegated almost every year in most countries.

So 13th is their best finish across the last 8 seasons. That is a quality accomplishment, considering how bad it's gotten at St. Sava Park. They've stayed the course with Al Iska as he's flirted with relegation, and it seems they may have finally turned the corner. Can they become a true mid-table club again? We'll see. But even though they only finished in 13th, considering how bad it's gotten there in recent years, their fans have to be ecstatic with this season's performances.

Disappointing season even if they met outside expectations- Hawabark Boulders, Isipongo Flash, Aissa United

Even if you meet your generally not high expectations, it doesn't mean you have a good season. And these three seasons, none of them expected to do much besides duke it out in the bottom half of the table, did not have fun seasons. The Hawabark Boulders are no longer a former regional league side- they've been a fixture in the BSL essentially since they won promotion all those years ago. They want to make the next step, keep moving forward. And yet, they're finishing four places behind teams like Suwawa FC, who just got promoted? Pretty poor turnout. Kiggwe Kabelo needs to figure out a way to get more out of the club, or else he won't be patrolling the sidelines at the Olympic Stadium for much longer.

Next, of course, is the Isipongo Flash. The team that, frankly, should have been relegated last season, but somehow managed to avoid it thanks to a horrendous finish from Bunyoro RSC. They weren't expected to do all that well, and they didn't- finishing in 16th. But how can one ever possibly be happy finishing 16th? They think of themselves as a mid-table club, not a team that should be barely avoiding relegation. The Flash lost the second most games out of any BSL side, losing 22 games. That's why Lallo Jobateh has found himself fired after just two seasons- clearly, the direction he was going with this club was south.

Third, naturally, is Aissa United. The club from the eastern border with Geisenfred, also thinks they are a mid-table club. They aren't, really. They shouldn't be relegated, but finishing in 10th would be well above expectations for this side. But there's a reason they fired Travis Kadongo at the end of this season- 17th is far too close to the one-spot relegation zone for comfort. Where will they go from here? It's hard to say. But this is a team that wants to stay as far away from the relegation zone as possible.

Well Below expectations- Mynda Electra, Capitol City FC, Busukuma Force

There was the disappointing but met reasonable expectations section. And then, there is the simply well below expectations section. Clubs that, by any reasonable measure, should have done much better than they did, and yet, here they are. We'll start with Mynda Electra. Daniel Lucas has been at the club for three seasons. The Damukuni corporate owned club believes that they should be around the mid-table. And yet, they find themselves in fourteenth place. From Season 10 to Season 11, they saw a ton of improvement under Lucas, going from 16th to 8th in the table. They figured they could maintain their place. But they took another large step backwards.

They've publicly maintained their faith in Lucas, bringing him back for a fourth season. But his coaching chair has the hottest seat in Banija right now. There's talent there- too much talent to be wasted away in fourteenth place. If he doesn't start fast next season, the pressure will be on. Next, of course, is Capitol City FC. Capitol City FC was in their second season in the top flight. Last season, they finished 17th. Your first year up, all you are trying to do is stay up, so that's successful. You need to improve in Year 2. Instead, they regressed. They went to 19th, just one place out of the relegation spot. They had hoped to break out of the bottom quarter of the table. They need to get better almost everywhere, as they are a prime candidate to get sent down next season.

And lastly, the Busukuma Force. They are a side that considers themselves good enough to compete for the top half of the table. And yet- 18th place? Competing for relegation? The promotion of Capitol City FC changes the calculus of things. Now, the three capitol sides are all in constant competition with one another as well. None, obviously, want to be relegated. A humiliation that they'd never let down. And although Capitol City FC hasn't overtaken them, they can't let that happen. That's why Brun Kissinger has found himself out of a job as well. They don't want to contemplate what would happen if they would be forced to spend time in the Lower Coastal League- and this is their way of telling the country they don't intend on finding out.

Total, Colossal, Complete, and unreserved Failure- Igulu City FC

Only one club can get a description like that. And it is the club that is relegated. In every league in the world where there is promotion and relegation, the most basic goal is to avoid relegation. And that is equally true. In this country, of course, relegation is worse- only one team gets relegated on an annual basis. That means only one team gets promoted every year. You've got all sorts of former BSL sides languishing in the regional leagues right now, cannibalizing each other as they try to get back up.

So it's a failure to finish in last and get relegated. It will be hard to get back up to the top flight again. It may take years to not only win their regional league, but to then have to win the Promotion Playoff. Tied for the fewest goals scored in the league, at only 31 goals for. The worst goal differential, at -36. Hard to say that this wasn't deserved. Vo Thanh Hai was perhaps the lone bright spot- but poor seasons nearly across the board from everywhere else left the Mavinet national team striker out to dry. THey will have enjoyed their seasons up- we imagine it may take a while for them to get back out of the Northern League and into the BSL.

Bonus: Promoted to the Banijan Soccer League- Dukuma SC

Future BSL side! And former. It's been a long road for Dukuma SC to get back to the Banijan Soccer League. They spent four full seasons in the regional leagues. They had some success down there, beating Lakiska SC one year in the semifinal en route to winning the RBSA Cup. And this season, they won the Ebrahim Razav Cup, the Busoga Islander domestic cup. But winning promotion is sweet. Finally, two Busogan sides are in the Banijan Soccer League once again. And one of the country's, or rather, the league's, fiercest rivalries, the Battle of the Islands, will be renewed twice a season again.

Winning promotion is the goal of all 48 regional league sides every season. And yet, only one does. It's a brutal process- no other league, to our knowledge, has so many teams in their second flight, and then promotes so few to the top flight. Most promote 2 or 3 of somewhere between 16-24. Due to sheer numbers, Banija's regional leagues may be the toughest place to win promotion anywhere in the multiverse. But if you do, the feeling is sweet. It is a hell of an accomplishment. Congratulations to them. And welcome to the top flight- hopefully for them, they have the ability and talent to actually stay a while.
