Federal Football League of Zeta Reka & Hügeltaldom
Federativna Liga Football Zeta Reka i Hügeltaldom
Information provided by the anglophone branch of the Federal Council of Sport, and in development

Current Season: 80
Most recent champions: Aleiusia Capital (10th title)
Format
The Federal League consists at this time three divisions and houses one hundred clubs. The one hundred clubs are divided into five regions. Unlike traditional sports leagues which are either a closed group of organizations or a pyramid of clubs, Rekan football operates with annual qualification events, similar to international sporting events. Teams with the best performances in locally managed competitions become teams in Division 1, and are eligible for the title of national champions. Teams with modest performances enter Division 2. Clubs that perform poorly in qualifying enter the top divisions of their region. The majority of matches take place in a home/away league.

In addition to the league competition, performances in qualifying effect ones chances to win the Republic’s Cup. The Republic’s Cup is organized by both national and local authorities, and teams in higher levels of the pyramid have byes into the later rounds of the event. Youth competitions also exist under a separate part of the FLF umbrella. Teams that play the top two divisions, plus the cup, are able to enter IFCF competitions if they can meet IFCF requirements. As of Season 76, the youth league champions were expected to enter into international competitions, but this is subject to finances.

Federal Football League of Zeta Reka & Hügeltaldom Federativna Liga Football Zeta Reka i Hügeltaldom
Season 76, Part 1
The league season is set to kick off in Zeta Reka. A tight schedule will lead to some tight reporting, and some no loose tactics from the eventual champions. Local qualifying has already taken place across the regions of the nation, and sixteen teams will battle it out for the Federal Vase. This issue will recap the qualifying groups and preview the teams in Division 1, plus show the transfer market at a quick glance.

Rekadom, Zeta Reka
There are three groups of five and the group winners play in Division 1. Teams are seeded by ranking last season, with teams playing their matches in a random order. The best group runner-up enter the playoffs. The other runners-up are slotted into Division 2.

Pot 1: DD Porto Nowi, AK Stanimir, Porto Nowi OR
Pot 2: FKP Ottowić County, FK Ofau, Handler Silve FK
Pot 3: PRD Ofau, Automotive Klub, Sarkewaka Strikers
Pot 4: Beginn-Davn, AK Raspon, FKP Cawgrade
Pot 5: FK Woz, Astra AK, Nikloji


Group A
Team                    Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts
1 DD Porto Nowi 8 8 0 0 20 5 +15 24 (Div 1)
2 Handler Svile FK 8 5 1 2 18 12 +6 16 (Div 2)
3 Nikloji 8 2 1 5 8 14 −6 7
4 Automotive Klub 8 1 3 4 9 14 −5 6
5 AK Raspon 8 1 1 6 6 16 −10 4
-— 2–1 2–1 2–0 4–0
0–4 — 3–0 3–3 3–1
0–1 2–5 — 2–2 1–0
1–2 0–2 1–0 — 1–2
2–3 0–1 0–2 1–1 —


Porto Nowi's attack smashed through the opposition, with Vladi Di scoring eight goals in six appearances. Arnald Gal snagged a hat trick against AK Raspon at home in just twenty minutes of play. Handler Svile FK returned to the second tier after spending a lot of ownership's money. Without progress, management is on loose ground if they don't reach international play soon.

All draws were Automotive away games, the team failing to promote themselves after finishing a point off of first place in Rekedom's local league. AK Raspon's owner is alleged to be folding the team after low ticket sales against Porto Nowi, Raspon may not even play locally.

Group B
Team                    Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts
1 FK Ofau 8 6 0 2 14 7 +7 18 (Div 1)
2 Porto Nowi OR 8 3 2 3 13 12 +1 11 (Div 2)
3 Beginn-Davn 8 3 2 3 5 5 0 11
4 Astra AK 8 2 2 4 8 12 −4 8
5 PRD Ofau 8 2 2 4 5 9 −4 8
-— 1–2 2–1 2–1 1–0
2–4 — 0–1 2–2 4–2
1–0 0–0 — 0–1 0–0
0–3 2–1 1–2 — 1–1
0–1 0–2 1–0 1–0 —

With Ofau guaranteed group winners six matches in, the final two days of play saw four teams battle for second level status. Astra had a small lead, but drew their only match via their second own goal of the group. PRD Ofau also lost their only match. Davn won two games, including the own goal win against Astra, but so did Porto Nowi OR, who won by more. Porto Nowi went from a win to second place, and the coach is "prepping for the Liga B Champions Trophy"

Group C
Team                    Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts
1 AK Stanimir 8 6 2 0 16 6 +10 20 (Div 1)
2 FKP Ottowić County 8 6 1 1 12 5 +7 19 (Playoff)
3 FK Woz 8 1 4 3 11 13 −2 7
4 FKP Cawgrade 8 2 1 5 9 15 −6 7
5 Sarkewaka Strikers 8 0 2 6 6 15 −9 2
-— 2–0 1–1 3–2 2–0
1–1 — 1–0 3–0 2–1
1–2 0–1 — 2–2 1–1
0–1 0–2 3–4 — 1–0
1–4 1–2 2–2 0–1 —

Group C quickly turned into a horse race for both Division 1 and the playoffs. Stanimir and Ottowić County monopolized the board, and Stanimir pulled away with a 2-0 win on the penultimate match day. Stanimir's new players from Quebec played a few matches, with backup midfielder Se-Yoon Ji scoring against FK Woz in a 1-1 draw. Ji's goal is the first from a female in the history of Federal League qualifying.

FKP Cawgrade looked promising with a 1-1-1 start, leading against Stanimir for eighty one minutes. However the club dropped four of their final five matches, and will be in the local leagues. FK Woz didn't want to be back in local play, in the prior season they were only saved by winning their last three matches.

Vladi Di: 8 in 6 aps (DD Porto Nowi)
Wladmir Jurss: 6 in 6 aps (FK Woz)
Stojan Heiden: 6 in 7 aps (AK Stanimir)
Arnald Gal: 5 in 5 aps (DD Porto Nowi)
Stanijan Mayern: 5 in 6 aps (Handler Svile FK)
Baskow Pejić: 5 in 6 aps (Handler Svile FK)
Wuk Böhmer: 4 in 6 aps (FK Ofau)
Stankojan Alekić: 4 in 7 aps (Porto Nowi OR)

Majid Dana: 3 in 6 aps (Ottowić)

Janis Hansen: 3 in 8 aps (Nikloji)

Ogroven, Zeta Reka
There are three groups of five and the top two group winners play in Division 1. The worst group winner and the highest ranked non winner play a play in. The winner advances to the playoffs, the loser enters Division 2. The two next best teams enter Division 2.

Pot 1: Ogroven Vanguardi FK, VZRH Matov-Uri, Spasavanje-Policija FK
Pot 2: FK Esseglein, Infustriejskigrade, Ogroven Sportslich
Pot 3: Preo Team, FKP Matov-Uri, Athletik Zanatlija
Pot 4: Brdo Pasa, Spartanac, Pudding Manufacturing
Pot 5: FK Pflugergrade, Duisgrade Athletik, Zanatlija FK

*docked three points for compensating players below pay standards in away loss to Spasavanje-Policija. Declared inellegable for this season's fair play award.

Preo team used some powerful assets to buy solid players for good prices. Spasavanje-Policija FK gave up 55% of their goals to Preo Team, and they will enter division 2 along with Ogroven Sportslich. Preo Team's good play slots them into the play-ins, the club could not pull ahead of other group winner.

VZRH winger Wladmir Kowen was hurt and the aging player saw backups score three goals each. His injury isn't new, and a player from Tequilo was signed to start for the club in most of this season. VZRH were almost untouched at the goal line, and they did not lose once. All other teams lacked enough spark to earn any status higher than third level.

Platinastigrade keep their record from last season's qualifying group and were followed by two surging teams. Wharsager Der Berg did well in the second divsion last season, and analysts are excised to see them in action against the best clubs in the country. Bergsteiger FK won the Hügeltaldom North league last season with a strong defense, and spend a bit of cash on their attack. The investment has paid off, they're skpping the second division. The scandal hit FK Banfigrade managed to make the playoffs by a wide margin, as both Ruzhan Stassengrade and Strumsburg Pogozdowati declined in form from last season.

A shocking upset took place in the opening round as Division 2 champions Striped Kits took an early tumble in qualifying against Spartan-Mraw. The big budget Striped Kits have gone from sixth place in the top division to a local league contender in just two years. In the second round Politehnika used all of their favors from heaven to beat a AFK Imperialismus squad that suited up two national team players.

Aleiusia Capital made it all the way through the tournament once again. They're had a two goal lead in all but four series over the last decade, and have only lost four games in that time. The above mentioned Spartan-Mraw, a merger of two older clubs, ended up being destroyed in round two by Finansijskigrade, who also advanced to Division 1.

Riverside have been looking to contend for the capital city's heart, and they faced off against former socialist era champions Politehnika in the Glavni Play-In. Iwan Zlatanić, Riverside's main attacker, was hurt and only came on as a sub in the second game. Scoring duties were thus in the hands (or feet) of Kubaun Zalko. Zalko belted in two shots at Miro Wukić Politehnika Stadion, and pulled Riverside ahead.

AK Stanimir have taken two huge moves and broke Zeta Reka's mold. Firstly, they have hired the first foreign coach in Zeta Reka's modern era, Moon Tae-Hong. Moon, from Quebec was able to finish near the top of the table for five straight seasons with CSKA Quebec. With a new coach comes new players, and Stanimir have a few good signing. Player's from coach Moon's homeland have been added to the roster. Sam Oronhyatekha is an aging center back, prompting groans after Stanimir's signing of an old David Kemper last season. Another choice that has sparked a buzz is Quebecois Se-Yoon Ji. Ji is the first female player to score for a Rekan team in a long time, and one of two women playing in the top flight. Combine these players with Don Carbey, Björnólfur Ernestisson, and Kioz Ryndin, and you get a solid and diverse team.

Capital have finished third place four seasons in a row, but a large spending spree has given them their first trophy in over a decade. The generation of players on the pitch is in transition, but the team is not rebuilding anymore according to comments from the staff. Generational talent at the front, back, and center, will be vital to the team's success. Despite comments of retirement, head coach Petar Luwić will stay on for one more season at sixty eights years old. The traditional, hard hitting and physical style of play Capital utilizes is blending with the right amount of cunning skill. "We have a great energy here" captain Luka Lukić said after their final qualifying game. "We're gonna challenge this year, and we'll do more than that." striker Bogdan Rawić to the same members of the press. Capital might be the favorites for the title this year, but there's other major contenders they will have to defeat.

In their Division 1 debut Riverside beat the champions at home but needed one or two better results away to participate in the Challenger's Cup. Even so, it was an amazing debut. Riverisde since have attempted to sell top player Iwan Zlatanić, but will keep him after Zlatanić refused to accept any offers. "We were never on the outs," head coach Matin Thord told his club's magazine. "Trying the sale was a decision from multiple angles, but he knew he is always welcome to play here." Thord said. Zlatanić has been silent on the transfer woes. However Zlatanić, now sporting a long beard, has scored a few goals for the team, even after suffering a toe injury in qualifying.

Beestagrade enter the top division with a 2-5-2 record. No major observers are giving Beestagrade a shot this season. The staff has reshuffled the deck, and moved players around, adding youth to the side. Perhaps with some seasoning, this squad can get better for season seventy seven. The team employed some tactical variety in qualifying, though they are by and large only a four at the back and two forwards kind of club. They have reformed their attack and Nikolai Pram from DD Porto Nowi is a signing of great significance, as one commentator put Beestagrade, "Management has reshuffled the deck, moved players around, and made a serious signing.

Press local and national have been sharply divided on Banfigrade after former head coach Wladmar Gaten published a tell all book accusing the club of having an unofficial "whites only" policy for players. Owner Astrawić Yuriwić had denied these allegations, stating that Gaten was "bitter" about the budget and that the tell all was published by a subsidiary Rudarstvo Korporacija ZR&H, owners of Banfigrade's biggest rivals, Platinastigrade. Regardless, the lack of a diverse player base has left many uneasy with the team, and they have lost some players as a result. Mato Kaz, a half Slav half Germanic player, is a major signing this season, as the club continues to try and build itself up and plug holes.

Finansijskigrade quickly rose up the ranks after being founded by investors in Rekan's liberalized markets. The club represents Zeta Reka's largest financial center, the tiny "tax haven town" of Finansijskigrade, Glavi Oblast. In the last nineteen seasons, Finansijskigrade have been common faces in the second division. Finansijskigrade have indeed won the Second Division twice. A lack of automatic promotion saw them enter the hunt for the IFCF's Liga B Champions Trophy two times in a row. Finansijskigrade's international experience is being touted by the staff. Finansijskigrade have gained a Xannerian goal keeper, who should be able to handle's Finansijskigrade high tempo games. They also have a new head coach who formerly was the assistant at Preo Team.

FK Ofau are still reeling from a match fixing scandal, however after a good half decade the club seems to be recovering, qualifying twice in three seasons for the top flight, and placing second in Division 2 last season. The "Towers of Doom" offense see two one hundred ninety centimeter plus players at the front. Behind them are areal aces such as Boriwoj Kazarian and Iwan Ilić, the later of whom was plucked from Ottowić County. The back line will be aided by two different keepers, an aging veteran in Božidar Jarankowić, and young Wukmir Lukawić.

Sponsor: Univerzitet Ottowić Okrug
Ottowić continues to play in the top flight, with a new head coach giving their young players another chance to shine. The average age of the club's strongest starting line up is on average just twenty four and three quarters years old. The club's formation continues to be a 4-4-2 that prioritizes growing prospects. Positions are intentionally dynamic under the Ottowić system. Forwards play as both center and side forwards. Central midfielders turn into forwards. The backs are tested by playing across the wings. Side midfielders and center backs learn a lot about formation co-ordination and defense. Uzlac Wladowić, a great veteran, will play closer to the middle than the young forward Majid Dana, who may get tested in a shadow striker role. Should the team play well, individuals will be poached, and that's something Ottowić's fans take pride in.

Kven followed up their title win with a second championship. The core of the team is still the same, but they are all getting older. Younger players from at home and abroad like Imabayama, Willis, Simeoniwić, and Draganić give Kven's fans and business partners hope for the future. The best part is that the title window is still open, could they perhaps win three titles in a row? If Kven is to "three-peat" they will need to use their 4-2-3-1 to optimal efficiency, prioritizing ball control and a high goal percentage like they have done for the last two years. The club will also have to adapt tactically as teams are starting to build their defense around the champions. "I've been told every coach has a 'Kven proof' line up," Head coach Janko Perlog said in a TV interview, going on to saw that, "I was told this last year, and a lot of these minds will be surprised at the Kven retort."

Vanguardi have finished in the top half in all three of their Division 1 campaigns. Seventh place is their lowest ranking, and the attack has been shouldering the blame in the off season. Regular player Albertow Schnabel is hurt and will be out until some time near the tenth match. A need for more goals saw Vanguardi sign Jess Kijanskas from Francisca Orient, who were just dumped out of Brenecia's A-League, but were finalists in the Crown Cup. Kijanskas has been protested by a few fans who dislike having a female player on the team. Head coach Stanimirić has called the protesting fans "shitty mongoloids" and while the team stands by their player, Stanimirić was fined for his vulgarity.

With a fourth place finish, observers think this could be the time for Platinastigrade to make a title push while their core is still in prime shape. However, cynical minds dominate discussions about Platinastigrade, who's two titles are far below other major teams. Should this diamond wielding team win, they'll need to work more as a unit rather than as individual talents. When the front three midfielders worked in tandem during qualifying, the team won every game. They had a much poorer record without a full strength side, and a lack of depth is just as much of a problem as the club's tactics.

The Preobrazhensky family oozes wealth and prosperity in a capitalist Zeta Reka. One inheritor of the Preobrazhensky fortune, Roko, has spent the past four years buying a small club, along with nearby property, in the Ogroven village of Jazik. In two their first three seasons, the team was promoted, but were unable to enter Federal League qualifying until this fifth season as the "Preo Team." Management have used a almost blank check, plus good scouting, to build a team worthy of the top flight. Some find the Preo Team to be hollow, their state of the art stadium, and surrounding homes, are quite the contrast to the local community. Reko has stated that his goal is to make the, "Preo District" a community of the future, but critics in the federal government say the project could all be some kind of tax write off. No matter what people think, the Preo Team needs to be looked at.

VZRH Matov-Uri renewed their sponsorship with Zoranić, a major grocery store, after tough negotiations. The teams revenue has been declining for the past decade, but they did have money to spend on the transfer market thanks to a merchandising deal with their sponsor. The main signing was Nephara veteran Vasili Giatrakis, who's name the team misspelled on their website as "Wasil Giatrakis" for about a week. The other player collected was Ramon Toca-Huayna from Tequilo. Toca-Huayna was a replacement player for Wladmir Kowen, who was hurt in qualifying. The new players have blended well with the club's strongest, and Matov-Uri are in a prime position to play outside of the country this year.

Der Berg's fan believe they only failed to win Division 2 last year because they lost at home to the division's worst team. A coaching change sees former Aleiusia Capital assistant and former Beginn-Davn head coach Schultz Waldowski take control of the club. Wladowski was a center back for Wharsager in his final season of play. With a slow growing group of young players, this fourteen year old club looks to have a breakout year soon or maybe even sooner. Since qualifying, Der Berg were able to grab national team full back Wukdrag Nikowić, who's club failed to qualify for the top league this year.

Stanimir's all or nothing results help them shoot out to an early lead, with four undefeated teams sitting behind due to a lack of wins. Preo Team are the shock of the table, as is Platinastigrade's status in last, nobody saw that one coming. Riverside's one goal run to fourteenth is another shocker. Iwan Zlatanić, Riveside's scoring machine, has not scored, but was booked after he was called offsides against AK Stanimir and had argument with the refs. Only Kven and Porto Nowi are top four teams from last year that are in that club after five, with Kven securing a draw after being on the ropes against Porto Nowi at the Energija Rekedom Stadion.

The best defense is the Preo Team, followed a by tie between VZRH and Kven. These three clubs, along with Ogroven Vanguardi and Porto Nowi have given up a goal a game or less. FK Banfigrade have given up twelve while the owner is embroliled in scandal, so the club is one of three not to have won a match. Kven, Bergsteiger, Wharsager Der Berg, and Beestagrade seem to have scored more on the road, not buckling under away fans could be important in a season which already seen fan ejections go up to one hundred thirty percent of last season's opening five matches.

After a third of the games have been played, Capital and Kven are almost even, but Capital's attack has been so much stronger, especially from that seven goal crushing of Ofau. Bogdan Rawić has scored five goals so far, and isn't stopping soon. Stanimir has an attack equal to Kven, but they're back line hasn't improved as much as the fans expected. Preo Team and have been units full of youth, vigor, and skill. The two clubs are now considered realistic IFCF contenders. Other teams like Platinastigrade, Vanguardi and Riverside are looking underwhelming this season, but they have twenty games to play catch up. Zlatanić of Riverside has scored two of clubs three goals, but is reportedly unhappy with his coach's reaction to the form Zlatanić is showing.

Stanimir's five goal lead they amassed against Porto Nowi was first time Porto Nowi has lost 3-8 at home in sixteen seasons. Wharsager Der Berg and Finansijskigrade's draw saw Finansijskigrade lead the game three times, and Der Berg lead once. Finansijskigrade leading 4-2 after an hour, but the home team came back, forcing Finansijskigrade to score in extra time. Another late win came when Bergsteiger scored on a counter from thirty yard away against Ofau. Kven collected ten points against teams in the top six, and the league's two best attacks only scored a single goal against Kven's powerful defense.

At the halfway mark, Capital are still in the lead for the second season in a row, though defending double champions Kven are within striking distance. Capital and DD Porto Nowi were unbeaten after fifteen last time, but they've lost a combined five games now. Eleven teams are within two wins of the last IFCF slot. AK Stanimir is a massively improved side, with Both Riverside and Banfigrade have dropped off seven places from this time last year. Finansijskigrade's numbers the best for a newcomer team, and have played exciting low defense football under head coach Wlad Lukawić.

Despite the strong attack, Finansijskigrade are not the top scorers. Capital have the most goals, with Bogdan Rawić looking for his third straight top scorers trophy. Rybki is one notable player who won't be in the hunt for top scorer, he's only scored once in eleven appearances, but made four assists. Bergsteiger midfielder Tomislaw Radowić has made the same number and had gotten a lot of attention from scouts. "He's a strong player, unexpectedly so!" sports writer Djoko Weljkowić stated in his well read column. Three hundred forty five goals have been scored, but only one has been scored by Vanguardi 2nd team player Dejan Milanowić. Experts are watching out for the eighteen year old should he slowly move into the senior side.

Capital continues to lead the league, but they are not as untouchable as they were last season. FK Banfigrade won a shocker against Capital, with two goals in the first half. Their lead over Porto Nowi is equal compared to this time last season, but Kven, Stanimir, and Vanguardi are closer to the top two. Kven's win against Porto Nowi is causing the press to talk of Porto Nowi's older players, though reverence has been given where it is due.

Jess Kijanskas scored her first FLF hat trick against Finansijskigrade, trying to put her team's goal average up, Vladi Di scored four against Beestagrade on day seventeen in the pouring rain. With nine goals Vladi Di is close to matching Rawić's eleven in a wicked golden boot race. Iwan Zlatanić was benched by his coach for not scoring enough, though Zlatanić has only been called to play ten times, and has a good goal ratio. The back line of Vanguardi has been as solid as they come.

Capital are five points ahead coming into the final fives matches. Porto Nowi are looking to avoid a third straight second place finish, and capital wants to avoid a fifth year placing third. Both cub's coaches guarantee better results this season, and perhaps both could be right. Kven are one point ahead of Vanguardi in the battle for fourth, and below Vanguardi is a drop off to the teams in the mid thirties. Beestagrade see themselves sink lower before Banfigrade by way of winning one less match. The low ranked teams also drew in their second meeting.

With IFCF play unlikely, Platinastigrade's board is looking into the future of their head coach. A major coaching change did take place, and the coaching shift was somber. Finansijskigrade head coach Wlad Lukawić was hospitalized a day before match draw against Capital. While there Lukawić was diagnosed with undisclosed illness and requires treatment. The Finansijskigrade boss will need to exit until the off season. An outpouring of support came from coaches and staff around the league for Lukawić.

It's over now, Capital are the Division 1 champions, they made the final KO blow by winning away against DD Porto Nowi. Capital lead at the half by two goals, and a early second half strike by Arnald Gal was called offside after the same call was delivered on day 26. Capital will thus enter IFCF play as the Champions League awaits for an all star team.

"It was one of best teams I've coached." Petar Luwić said as he was interviewed after on the field. The title win was sealed by two goals for David Dix. Speaking of goals, Bogdan Rawić's twenty one makes him the odds on favorite for the golden boot, with Valdi Di and Jess Kijanskas failing to score since match twenty four. Sadly the match wasn't all positives, Stanko Yakowić is out with a bag leg injury, which will see a backup starting in the cup fixtures.

Riverside's head coach Martin Thord is out after a loss cost them any IFCF play. "We won 6-1, we beat the champs, but he's gone now. Don't feel too bad." Iwan Zlatanić said while on the bench. For either AK Stanimir and Preo Team to enter the Challenger's Cup, they need to win twice without Vanguardi winning once or Kven drawing a single time. Both Stanimir and Preo team face off against the champs, who still want to win the cup. VZRH Matov-Uri seem safe, but they are not solid for an IFCF debut. Any win should be enough for them to go through. Porto Nowi have won their last two games in four of the last five seasons. Poor old Beestagrade will be finishing last, and by our estimate could be up to sixteen points behind depending on how the next four teams above Beestagrade play.

Preo Team and Stanimir were dumped out of IFCF play as the top five moved the chains too far. For Stanimir this a solid comeback from finishing outside of the , but finishing outside of the top four for three seasons has putting a strain on the club. The Preo Team really impressed this season, and are on track to be the best team who didn't play in Division 1 last season.

VZRH Matov-Uri are drawn against Challenger's Cup veterans Kven, and should either club lose, they could be dumped out if both Porto Nowi and Vanguardi win their separate matches. Both Porto Nowi and Vanguardi are tied. While both could finish strong, they could likely remain tied, and that would clinch Porto Nowi their third ticket to the challenger's cup. For Vanguardi, a return to the world's stage could be a huge boost for their merchandise department. The teams playing the spoiler role are Ofau and Ottowić County respectively, who will look to sweeten their rocky seasons.

After thirty matches, wild swings, and a tight horse race, Porto Nowi are the suitor denied a spot in the top four. Ofau came from behind late, but a draw could have still been enough to knock Kven down. However, Kven were simply too solid for Matov-Uri's numerical advantage in the midfield. With Kven locked in, Vanguardi's path to the top four was simplified, just win. After a penalty from Ottowić, the game tied the game at the half. As the clock passed the hour mark Vanguardi took the lead and then quickly scored once more to gain their highest final position ever.

Beestagrade finished their season with a win and they knocked Platinastigrade out of the top ten, something the club is not used to. Shortly after the match, Radoslaw Benko, head coach, was announced as the club's newest advisory role. Benko's coaching replacement is Platinastigrade veteran Mirko Slawenić. Slawenić is the club's leading scorer over the past twenty years with ninety seven goals in just under two hundred fifty appearances. "We're excited to have him on board." Platinastigrade's ever baritone football director stated to the press. Another coach gone is Beestagrade's, who will not be renewed on his contract. One manager's who going to have a happy off season is Antonije Markowić from Preo Team, who was given a four year extension on his contract with a guarantee of coaching next season.

Own Goals: 9
The highest scoring team was Aleiusia Capital, and AK Stanimir was in second. Capital divided it's goals among twelve players, plus an own goal, while fifteen footballers scored for Stanimir. Own goals shifted from twenty six to nine, or from "0.10833... per 90" to just ".0375 per 90." One sportswriter described the dip in own goals as a, "maturing," of the nation's back lines.

One hundred seventy five payers scored goals, plus a few more who scored own goals. The golden boot went to Bogdan Rawić, for the third season in a row, and some are saying the young man may only win three, as his inner circle is taking offers for a transfer. As has been mentioned before, Kijanskas and Vladi Di lost out in the golden boot race because their output was almost zero in the final six match days. Max-Otto Bergmann was able to sneak in a "bronze boot" after scoring five goals in Finansijskigrade's final four games.

To local observers, the most notable drop in goals scored was Rybki's . The legendary face was an indirect player this season, and did win the assists award. However, only scoring three goals is a decline after scoring five plus at least and sometimes double digits and was one goal less than backup forward Miloš Djaja. Wing back Iwanow Markowić of Ofau was the highest scoring defender, while VZRH captain Wladmir Bogdanić was the highest scoring center back. Bogdanić jumped, spun and slid into five goals from corners and throw ins.

Speaking of set pieces, the best man for harnessing the power of set pieces was Miloš Simeoniwić, who scored eight of his eleven goals from either free kicks, penalties, or other set peices. Simeoniwić even scored directly from a corner.

On day 29 Imperialismus clinched the Division 2 title by drawing away against Handler Silve, the club also had help from Ogroven Sportlich drawing in the backyard of Ribar PRD. Imperialismus, Sportlich and Silve were all locked into IFCF slots on that day because Spasavanje-Policija could not win from day 27 to day 30. Imperialismus' title win came off of national team player Stajkwon Hokwok scored twenty three goals, including five in a single game (mentioned below). Third place Handler Sivle, gave up only three goals at home, Sportlich were in the middle, hitting harder than most and keeping goals away with skill. Josef Djurkowić, Sportlich captain, was made player of the seaon.

Porto Nowi OR were thought to be IFCF contenders this season, but they fluctuated through the ranks. OR's form was best shown on days two and three. On day two, the team hosted Spasavanje-Policija. OR belted seven goals in the first half, and three more in the second. It was the most lopsided match in Division 2 for almost a decade. On the next matchday, Imperialismus were the home side against Porto Nowi OR. This time around no club score seven in a half. However, Imperialismus won by seven goals. Ribar PRD started to climb into the top three around one third into the season, but fell off the top six by day twenty two. Industriejskigrade seemed to peak early, slipping quickly out of the top three, and spending a lot of time in fourth place.

Kovgrade are playing two levels where sporting merrit would have put them, but the "fair play award" gave them a chance to compete. They did avoid finishing in last, and by a cozy margin. Traktor Klub's final win of the season came against Kovgrade, on day twenty five. The South Hügeltaldom club were in the top flight a season before Zeta Reka published results worldwide. Traktor Klub has had one of the sharpest short term declines in form, and it could take a lot of work for them to enter the top flight again.
Republic's Cup

The premier knock out tournament in Zeta Reka, the Republic's Cup (Kup Republika Zeta Reka i Hügeltaldom) sees all the federal league teams and various local clubs face off over eight rounds of single elimination play. In the past few years, DD Porto Nowi have been in four straight finals, winning twice. However now Aleiusia Capital are the defending cup champions. The cup's matches were late into the season, and with byes being given to top level clubs, the Republic's Cup cramps many team schedules.

The first round of the cup sees teams from four preliminary tournaments drawn against eight clubs that failed to enter either Division 1 or Division 2 in local qualifying. Due to a quirk in Division 2 qualifying, two teams from the local cups will play in a "Final Preliminary Round." After the opening round, twenty teams are slotted into the mix from the third tier. In round three all of Division 2 is added to the tournament, and then in round four the final thirty consists of sixteen teams already in the cup, and all sixteen teams from Division 1.

Alkemost Football (4) 2-1 Ovrâd Dragons (3)

The Ovrâd Dragons put a lot of stock into their league this season, and while winning this match would have given them an extra payday from the cup, it was no major loss. Alkemost Football used to be a solid team in the competition, and they won after scoring twice in the first half with deep lying goals.

In the first round, the teams were mostly tough squads who already had solid local cup runs. Only half of them got to advance, and while few of them are given a fighting chance, they still showed skill. VZRH Matov-Uri's reserve squad bashed Zanatlija, scoring three goals in a wild second half. Alkemost Football's perliminary win did little to help them as Djurowac Athletik go through to round two. Studenten Porto Nowi are the lowest team on the ladder to advance. Studenten won with an early goal on the road. Two matches went to extra time. Sts' Katedrala and Athletik Zanatlija each won with goals after a century of minutes.

The teams who entered in the second round are farmiliar to readers who looked at Federal League quaifying. Beginn-Davn dominated Pflugergrade by scoring five times in the first half. Dieter Helmutow scored four times in the first half, and made an assist in the second half. Only Korvann Cannons FK and FK Esseglein were able to score more than two goals in a half. Studenten Porto Nowi scored after ninty eight minutes when they were bussed in to Matov-Uri to play Jedanaest. Three red cards plus a yellow red were handed out when Cawgrade hosted Pudding Manufacturing. Down a player, Cawgrade gave up a goal inthe first half. Then a two man ruckus caused a player from side to be taken out. Lastly, a handball from Cawgrade's keeper set up a late equalizer opportunity. However, an outfield player assigned to the goal was able to shove the ball over the post.

Here come the second tier clubs. Seven second tier clubs went out at this stage, while three, Kovgrade, Regal, and Handler Silve, were taken out by third level clubs. FK Esseglein, Beginn-Davn and Striped Kits were able to kill some giants, with Striped Kits taking home a win just before the end of extra time. After getting out of round one with an extra time goal, Sts' Katedrala bowed out in a shoot out against Spartan-Mraw. Almost every team had a tough match on paper, with Porto Nowi OR's dominant win being the exception. Univerzitet u Aleiusia had to pull away late against Djurowac Athletik "It was a real disappointment, but these kids are darn good." Djurowac head coach Miloš Mitrowić said after the game. The gunslingers of Imperialismus and Spasavanje-Policija avoided a shootout, or extra time for that matter. They didn't start scoring for an hour. Regular starter Stajkwon Hokwok was subbed into the match, and scored twice in ten minutes. Another extra time match saw Korvann Cannons, semi finalists two seasons ago, visit Astra AK. Astra, a city known for basketball, had more posession in extra time by a wide margin, and used this to score a single goal.

In round four, the top teams in the country entered the tournament. As the cup said hello to Division 1 it also waved goodbye to sixteen team. Riverside, Finansijskigrade, Ofau, Wharsager Der Berg and Beestagrade were all elminated. Ogroven Sportlich got to play giant killers against Beestagrade, and the other top level team were eliminated by their peers. Porto Nowi and AK Stanimir looked especially strong in inter divisional games. Kven had a rough time, but got past Ofau thanks to an extra time goal from Matej Brandt. Capital used a mix of senior and youth players against Striped Kits, and one U-21 player, Marko Ratmirić, assisted Dragan Nikitowić for a goal in the first half. Luka Lukić was able to score a free kick late after entering the match as a sub. Beginn-Davn won by six goals in the first round, but it took eighty minutes for them to score against Univerzitet u Aleiusia, who won the match thanks to five outstanding goals. Preo Team never lost the lead to FK Esseglein, their lead peaked three goals for about five minutes. The game was closethough as the clubs were level for over an hour. Studenten Porto Nowi's deep run ended after they gave up two goals to Platinastigrade, who are probably kicking themselves for not recording a clean sheet.

The Preo Team won on penalties against the defending league champions, Commendant Wukowić and Artur Draganić had their kicks caught with too much ease. Platinastigrade won after extra time thanks to a smooth penalty kick into the keeper's bottom corner. Matov-Uri saw defender Dratko Iwanić collect a yellow card and a red, with his two cards coming one hundred eleven minutes apart. Stanimir crushed Porto Nowi OR away from home, with Se-Yoon Ji scoring twice from the bench, and a hat trick being sent in by starting forward Wuk Klazz.
Between days 27 and 28

AK Stanimir (1) 6-1 FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia (3)
Preo Team (1) 0-2 Aleiusia Capital (1)
Bergsteiger FK (1) 2-0 Fire Rescue (2)

Porto Nowi will be missing out on their first final in five seasons because of two goals from Platinastigrade's Janko Lexow. the upset run for Univerzitet u Aleiusia was finished off by six straight goals from AK Stanimir. The Preo Team have much like Univerzitet gone further than ever before in the cup. Preo Team's hopes of a semi final were dashed thanks to a blown free kick which was countered into Capital's second goal of the game. Bergsteiger scored twice in the first fifteen minutes, with veteran keeper Walter Gunkil making eight saves to help his club win.
Between days 28 and 29
Aleiusia Capital (1) 4-0 Platinastigrade (1)
AK Stanimir (1) 3-2 Bergsteiger FK (1)

There was a great divide between Capital and Platinastigrade. Capital ran a side with as much power as possible, though some top players had already been used to win the league. Even without their full strength, Capital still got on a roll, leading by three at the halfway point. For Stanimir they had a bigger challenge as they stopped a comeback near the end of the match. Now two of the top offenses in the country are in the final of the Republic's Cup.

At the half, Stanimir were up in their first trophy challenge since season 73. Capital's tactical changes were not helping the team. Prtajin, picked up from of all placed the reserve team, was keen to impress in a deep lying role, and was he bright spot of the team. Prtajin MVP play forced Stanimir twoards the wings when playing in Capital's third, where Stojan Heiden and Erik Djokawić took crossing practice for Alek Wladowić. Eventually, a keep low roller from Heiden hit Wladowić's boot, and Stanimir got a point.

Shortly before the half hour mark, Ratmir Grbić seems to roll his ankle badly when attempting to challenge Rawić for the ball, and young Petrus Barić got his first appearance for the team since an injury shelved him early in the season. Even with an injured man, Stanimir continued to hold a lead, almost scoring a second time a few minutes later when Depping used his signature underlapping charge. Luckily for Capital, Wilson dove into the ball, and Baum was quick to keep possession.

Reports state that the Capital locker room came back onto the pitch as calm as could be. While a rousing speech from Stanimir's Grbić, who had been given equipment for an ankle injury, fired up the match's leaders. The only other major diference in this half, was that Jad and Noske switched to their regular club positions.

A tackle in the box by veteran Sam Oronhyatekha lead to a penalty kick for Capital. Rawić has been a solid penalty taker, and with Lukić lacking form this season in set peices, Rawić needed to score. With a quick flick, the ball went inside, and Lukavić jumped the wrong way. With the score even again, Capital put up a stronger fight than before. Needing another notch on the board, Rawić flew forward, getting a pass from Jad, and tapping it to punish a confusing counter attack from Stanimir. The back four had simply stopped moving the ball up, and it was a huge mistake.

Stanimir used their last substitution to bring in veteran Wuk Klazz. But despite his efforts, Stanimir was still down a goal. Capital took back the ball late, no longer playing Rawić or Beni Baum, and marched donw the center lane of the pitch. An areal pass by David Dix was handed by Wuk Ninković, who had been booked early in the match. Ninković was sent away. On Capital second penalty of the match, David Dix took the shot, and it flew up, Wilson's hand just out of alignment.

That was the final score of the game. A single off target shot was fired out in extra time, and the final whistle blew at 90+7 and a half. Capital had done it, they had won the nations first domestic double in three seasons, and did so in style in their own backyard. Confetti flooded the sports complex painting the grass red white, and, yellow.

Season 76, Part 3 Awards and Local Leagues
Awards
3D-Com All-League Team
All XI Team
GK: Klaudio Rekawić (Riverside) (All XI Debut)
DF: Janko Yakowić (Capital) (4)
DF: Jan Thimig (Vanguardi) (2)
DF: Yuri Kewić (Porto Nowi) (All XI Debut)
DF: Wlad Wlad (Vanguardi) (All XI Debut)
MF: Rybki (Porto Nowi) (12)
MF: David Dix (Capital) (3)
MF: Jad (Capital) (5)
FW: Bogdan Rawić (Capital) (3)
FW: Jess Kijanskas (BRE) (Vanguardi) (All XI Debut)
FW: Stojan Heiden (AK Stanimir) (2)
HC: Riki Schmelling (VZRH) (All Team debut)

Alternate players
GK: Wukan Radovlawić (VZRH)
DF: Wladmir Bogdanić (VZRH)
DF: Viktor Pettersson (SVJ) (Capital)
MF: Tomislaw Radowić (Bergsteiger)
MF: Miloš Simeoniwić (Kven)
FW: Vladi Di (Porto Nowi)
FW: Max-Otto Bergmann (Finansijskigrade)

The 3D-Com All League list was created from the votes of players, staff, and the executives of the Federal League. Rybkyi's 12'th apperance means he has been in 57% (12 out of 21) All-League Teams. No other player has been in more than six lists, but Jad's fifth inclusion put's him in a small club of players with a half decade of dominance. Nine players in the top XI are players who have been capped by the national team of Zeta Reka, with one uncapped goal keeper and a foreign player also on the list. Rekawić by extension won the golden glove for being the keeper of the season. Using the same logic as Rekawić's golden boot victory, Janko Yakowić, Rybki and Bogdan Rawić were the best defender, midfielder and forward.

The alternate players are a skilled bunch, as is expected. Tomislaw Radowić was the biggest outlier, the teenager was a great attacking player in the midfield. Max-Otto Bergmann was an unexpected alternate forward. Bergmann's goals mostly came in bunches, but he was a steady assist man for Finansijskigrade. Regular All Leaguers such as Wladmir Bogdanić, Miloš Simeoniwić and Vladi Di were able to keep their spot on the team. Viktor Pettersson made his debut as an alternate because the Savojarna born left back had the most interseptions per game by any left back in the league.

Riki Schmelling's player management and ability to juggle a massive midfield made him the coach of the season. That award will be VZRH's highest honor this season, but Schmelling is reported to already be preparing for a real title challenge next season. Reportedly the vote for the coaching spot was a horse race between Schmelling and the Preo Team's Antonije Markowić. Markowić has formerly been the All League coach with a small club, but hasn't coach a top flight team in three whole seasons. Markowić's connection to a match fixing scandal may have caused voters to look for other options.

Ljuban Iwanić Award (player of the season)
FW: Bogdan Rawić (Capital)

FW: Jess Kijanskas (BRE) (Vanguardi)
DF: Janko Yakowić (Capital)
MF: Rybki (Porto Nowi)
DF: Jan Thimig (Vanguardi)

The real story was obviously was the winner of the award. Bogdan Rawić's form was impeccable this season as he turned from a periphery player in the top five into the player of the year. "World Class." Rybki said, not confirming to the press if he voted for the the diminutive Rawić. His exploits have been talked about, but they need repeating, Rawić has scored twenty goals three years in a row, scoring twenty six at age nineteen, and twenty one for the past two seasons. With only seventy four league appearances, Rawić goal ratio of 0.9189 is seemingly the best in league history.

Rybki, a multi time winner, finished fourth in voting, his lowest slot in a decade. Two defenders made the short list for the first time in eight seasons. Capital found two slots on the list, as did Ogroven Vanguardi. For both Jess Kijanskas and Jan Thimig, this was their first time on the shortlist. In addition Kijanskas was the first foreign player and the first player to enter the top five that was not a man. "We very proud to have two players on the list," Vanguardi coach Jowan Stanimirić said to members of the press at the FLF Award ceremonies "We going to get better from here," he promised.


Best Young Player (21 and under)
FW: Bogdan Rawić (Capital) (3)

MF: Tomislaw Radowić (Bergsteiger)
FW: Arnald Gal (Porto Nowi)
DF: Zaur-Luka Igorić (Vanguardi)
DF: Dratko Iwanić (VZRH)

Rawić won his third straight under twenty one award. Arnald Gal moved down to third place thanks to the great season Tomislaw Radowić had this year. Zaur-Luka Igorić was a dynamic player for a top level back line. Backup Dratko Iwanić from VZRH played a few times and was a solid shot stopper.


Best New Signing
CF: Jess Kijanskas (BRE) (Vanguardi)

ST: Wolfgang Wladmirić (Preo Team)
CB: Don Carbey (KOR) (Stanimir)
RM: Brankiko Nikowić (Preo Team)
GK: Miloš Nikitawić (Ottowić)

By helping shoot her club back into world football, Kijanskas was an easy pick for the best signing award. The Preo Team's fiscal weight allowed them to buy overlooked players at good prices, and two of them were on the shortlist. Don Carbey was a great find by Stanimir's new staff, and his shot stopping skills were something the club has needed for years. Goal keeper Miloš Nikitawić missed out on being an all-team keeper, but was very solid and earned a lot of praise for his dramatic saves.


Best Backup (started ten or less games)
LM/RB: Hermann Hamppe (Capital)

DM: Matej Brandt (Kven)
DF: Dratko Iwanić (VZRH)
MF: Ratko Ivančir (Finansijskigrade)
LW: Miloš Djaja (DD Porto Nowi)

Hamppe's versatility was why he won the award this season. It's rare to find a young and skilled player who can play deep on one side and forward on the other. If he can develop better symmetry Hamppe could be a starter for any club in the country. Veteran Martej Brandt, aged thirty, was a solid sub for Kven's double pivot, and came in on the attack at vital moments. Dratko Iwanić was in the top five for two awards, and that was something nobody expected before the start of the season. Ratko Ivančir was able to play along the center line and could get good passes into the box. Miloš Djaja scored from the bench, but had some stamina issues.


Comeback Player Of The Year
Abdul-Malik Kozari (Platinastigrade)


Playing on loan at Platinastigrade, Kozari was last seen in Division 1's seventy fourth season. Regal was and is the club Kozari is signed to, and they won no games in season seventy four. As a backup for Platinastigrade, Kozari scored two times, and had two assists. Kozari also scored two goals in two starts for Regal durring FLF qualifying, and started a cup match while out on loan. "He's getting back a lot of lost confidence", Platinastigrade head coach Radoslaw Benko told reporters on the evening of Kozari's first Platinastigrade goal.
Local Leagues
Local play in Zeta Reka is more important for the league than in some other nations. The third level of Rekan football sees teams playing to keep themselves eligible for the FLF Qualifying events that start every season. Each locality has its own method for reelecting teams to the big dance, and there also procedures for being relegated in divisions outside of the FLF's watchful eyes. We have the final results, and a small recap, for each season.

PRD Ofau clinched the title by beating Nikiloji on day 28 when Davn settled for a two goal draw against Astra. PRD were contenders all season, with teams like Sarkewaka Strikers, Nikiloji, KWW and fanning out after the first half. The top nine clubs will all be seen in next season's federal league qualifying, and all nine teams simply outclassed the other seven. Klub Esportiwa was relegated on day twenty seven, and were winless from the second match until the fourteenth. Horbatski Athletik were winless in their final six, with three losses, and thus playing down a level next season. Orao Krila also went winless for eight straight games, but avoided a first season drop.

Jowan Višnjić of Automotive Klub and Dieter Helmutow of Davn were the top scorers with seventeen goals each, behind them was a Horbatski Athletik player with thirteen. The player of the season was Strikers goalkeeper Wlado Bach for his record breaking number of saves, one hundred sixty nine. Some action packed games took place. A record was set when Nikiloji hosted Automotive Klub. In a 7-5 match there were four own goals, three of which were scored by the winning side. A game like that is the most unsual result Rekedom, if not the nation, has ever seen.

FKP Matov-Uri used a solid back line to give up only five goals all season, tying the league record. That gave them a huge edge in the league, which they thanks a 1-0 win over Sts' Katedrala. The top nine teams would enter regional qualifying for next season's FLF. Katedrala's second loss to the regional champs was enough to keep them out of top flight contention next season. FK Pflugergrade were elminated after finishing their final game on matchday twenty seven by giving up three goals on the road. Pudding Manufacturing's run ended there as well, when they lost their nineteenth game in a 3-4 stunner against Athletik Crvenopoklon Football, who were once down 3-1. The top scoring teams were Spartanac and Athletik Crvenopoklon. Spartanac's attack was spread across the team. Crvenopoklon saw their attacks finished by thireteen outfielders, including player coach Mihailo Nikolć. This meant the top scorer title went to player of the season Janko Milanowić, the Esseglein forward who scored twelve goals with three braces, and made two assists.

This league got a bit more attention than the rest from sports writers. Both the relegation race and the title race were tight until the very end, and nobody saw the final results coming.

The attack heavy AK Soleburg topped after fives matches with ten points, and then fell off a cliff. Soleburg only snagged two more wins over their next ten games, and their head coach was out after their tenth. In was Wladmir Gaten, who had no team after leaving FK Banfigrade and attemping to release a book about this club's owner. A win and three draw came by their 20th game, but they were still four points inside the drop zone. By some miracle, Soleburg beat Djurowac 4-2, one point behind, who's season had ended a while back. Fruchtbarkeit Nizine had lost 1-2 to Kernwuchs, and then drew on the final day 1-1 to Dvorac Ioze, title contenders. Fellow title contenders FK Stassengrade needed a win to have a shot at promotion, and they faced Soleburg. After seventy five percent of the game was scoreless attacking, Stassengrade defender Micha Werner, on loan from Proud Tigers, made a bad backpass that allowed a tap in goal. The great escape has come, and at the peril of Platinastigrade Studenti.

As mentioned before, Soleburg was playing a title contender, the other teams who could win the title were Platinastigrade 2 (unpromotable), and FK Dvorac Ioze. Platinastigrade's reserve team would be the first reservist squad to ever win a top local league in Hügeltaldom. Dvorac were sent down to the local leagues in Season 74, and have been in the top flight three times. Platinastigrade found a way to lose against Produktionsstätte Athletik by two goals, both scored in the second half of play. Dvorac faced an easy opponent at home, Fruchtbarkeit Nizine, who had a chance to stay up if Soleburg hadn't pulled off a miracle. Before Soleburg's triumph, Nizine were up 2-1 at the half. They then gave up a goal on minute forty six, and then one more just before word spread of their relegation. The comeback win made Dvorac Ioze the regional champions for the second time in four seasons.

Veteran play maker Iwan Jorgić of Dvorac Ioze was the player of the season, and about to retire at age thirty four. Teenager Andrej Rastkowić from Soleburg, Forward/defender Wladmir Imilić from Dvorac Ioze, and also Widald Seppel of Ruzhan Stassengrade were the golden boot winners. The trio each scored Nine goals. Rastkowić is on loan and contracted to Ribar PRD, and joined Soleburg after the club changed coaches. Coach Gaten told the press, "Nine goals in ten games is not easy, and I respect the hell out of this kid."

Under local rules, the sides from Hüelhunde and Klub 20 could not be promoted back into regional qualifying without winning the "Fair Play Award." That is why we say they are "relegated" in the South Hügeltaldom section for qualifying. In the end, Hüelhunde finished well, not being in the top two simply because they started the season with four straight losses. Ovrâd missed out on promotion when they lost to FKP Ribar away from home. Žitarice Union locked up promotion on match day nineteen by beating the same club. Ovrâd Dragons defender Juraj Iwanić was the player of the season. The twenty two year old set peice whizz will be looking for a high contract next season.

An extra league spot was open this year because there was a club merger, and a team that should have been relegated last time, Kosmopolitisch-Kosmopolitskog, were able to play this season. they were able to improve and enter FLF Qualifying next season. Aleiusia Capital 2 can not play above this level, and so that meant the team in 9th would be entering FLF qualification. FK 246m were level with "Pobeda Zeta Reka," and "Univerzitet u Aleiusia," on the final day, but only one could get their eights scoreless draw, and that was the 2-4-6. The Draw also gave relegation candidate Horbatski Aleiusia Athletik a push. Even if Horbatski had lost, only The Lucky Gauners had a chance to climb up. However, the Gauners lost 4-1 at DD Aleiusia's home ground. It's been a tough season for Gauners, who were in Division 1 just three seasons ago and had finished thirteenth.

Striped Kits ran away with the title, and even with their striker plus two major midfield options out on loan, the quality of thier side was too good for this league. Striped Kits clinched the title over Korvann Cannons on day 29, and then two more teams hopped over the gunners. Striped Kits captain Novi Illić was the player of the season and lead the league in assists. Aleiusia Capital 2 reserve striker Anslem Kamber scored twenty times and could be sold soon. FK 246m gave up only ninteen goals, which is the first sub twenty Glavni Liga season in five seasons.

Federal Football League of Zeta Reka & Hügeltaldom Federativna Liga Football Zeta Reka i Hügeltaldom
Season 77, Part 1 Preseason and regional qualifying
Coming off a season that included 3,594 goals, thrills, spills, and a a double winning side, the Federal League could use a break. There is no rest however. In fact, during the eighty first year of Zeta Reka, the offseason and pre season for the seventy seventh season of the FLF ZRiH was more active than ever before. At this point the early chapter of the season are set in stone. We have our sixteen teams, ready to play. In addition many of the teams have a new look, and new rosters. We will look into all of that in this opening issue (and a half) of season seventy seven.
League Meeting

Some noteworthy events took place at the annual League Meeting at the Hügeltaldom Oblast Convention Center in the city of Ogroven. A score of delegates from the clubs, plus other important bodies, met to discuss and vote on major issues affecting the Federal Football League. In addition, the meeting doubled as a meeting for the league’s seven member executive committee. None could say that there were a dearth of topics covered during these productive days.

League Restructuring
A major point of discussion for clubs and officials in the FLF was the format of the league. Whispers of a breakaway have existed on and off since Rekan football was put on for-profit TV. The league system, in many ways, is called flawed in footballing circles. Platinastigrade Director of Operations Stado Jakowić has spoken publicly about a new top flight. “We can’t have a business that’s in the largest league move down two leagues thanks to a few games.” The hypothetical, “Grand League,” as it has been named by the press is something many clubs have sought to avoid. “In the modern game, runaway inequality is easy to generate with a pull away league,” claimed a research paper from the Football Association, who’s delegates were mostly against the change. After a year of delaying the issue, multiple proposals were made to bring the differing interest groups together. Any change would require a 60% vote from the team directors, plus other relevant parties, to back the motion. One concept floated currently is automatic qualification for teams who place highly over consecutive seasons.

The committee voted down granting an automatic IFCF spot to the winner of the Republic’s Cup. Support for this change came from smaller clubs who wanted a fringe chance of collecting international gates. Others believed the costs of travel would be too great for a tournament the size of the Challenger’s Cup’s early stages. One major motion was an overhaul of the cup system designed to seed teams from the third tier. The prior system was inconsistent, and was lambasted for having a preliminary round after qualifying had finished. The proposal would seed all federal league teams, with teams from the top two divisions gaining byes. Other teams playing in local opening round brackets against each other and lucky teams from the local leagues. The plan passed by a wide margin but only after it was amended to preserve byes for third level teams.

A few ideas of note were brought up during the league meeting. One claimed that a top league may be necessary to preserve Liga B entry slots. “Teams that are slotted into Division 2 are before then eligible to win the national title. Regional qualifying groups could be interpreted as mid-season split of a on hundred team top tier,” wrote sportswriter Djoko Weljkowić, who covered the league meeting in high detail.

Racial Row
Ever since the transfer window for last season, major controversy has gripped Zeta Reka in and out of football. Current Handler Svile Head Coach Wladmir Gaten attempted to publish a tell all book about his single season coaching for FK Banfigrade and its owner, Astrawić Yuriwić. Gaten’s writings alleged that Yuriwić blocked the hiring of minority personnel. Yuriwić’s scandal caused by Gaten’s book impacted the owner and thus FK Banfigrade as well. A complex legal injunction against Gaten, the publisher, the Platinastgrade football club and its owners was filed by Yuriwić. After the lawsuit was thrown out, new revelations of the club’s discriminatory practices and owner interference emerged. Months later, the controversy has returned to the spotlight a third time. At the owner’s meeting, a proposal for, “ethnic and racial hiring equality,” was forwarded to the executive committee. The five voting members sided against the motion on a three-two decision. All designs by the committee can be veto’d by the delegates on the floor, and a zeta attempt was made. The veto was forwarded by the delegate, president, and owner of Beginn-Davn, Mrioslaw Hefetz.

Hefetz gave a fiery speech befitting of the former legislator’s reputation for a sharp tongue. “If we allow blatant racism to continue,” he said, “we will have a black mark held against us by the truly meritocratic countries we claim to be in league with.” Later Hefetz had his remarks jeered after he apologized for using the term black mark as, “black is like tan. Black is a word some members of the executive committee wish avoid.” A more conservative faction of delegates spoke against the measure. The delegate from the team called, “Zrno,” was a harsh critic, “We have seen diversity in action in our media,” he said to the meeting goers. “Today television in our country is more diverse than the nation. Our programs are in production in major cities, that is why the numbers are the way they are. People outside of Porto Nowi or the Glavni Oblast cannot connect to these shows. We should not vote for the forcing of diversity in areas that are not diverse. We cannot force a decline in popularity across the heart of our nation to appease activists who hate our country.” No media sources could confirm these claims. Reports indicate that the two owners had a minor exchange in the parking lot after the night’s events.

A walkout of three ethnic minority delegates took place during the veto vote. “Overturning the executive committee’s veto is rare,” an unnamed supporter said, “They opted to go to the public instead of losing by a few less votes in meeting hall.” The three men who walked out were also spoke out “We now know objectively that the majority of the league is complacent in the systemic issues of FK Banfigrade.” Porto Nowi OR co-president Ali Abdelhaleem said to a tiny media contingent in the convention center’s parking lot. Public support came to the three men, but also condemnation. A tense exchange took place on national TV between Predrag Anwar, a cultural figurehead in Zeta Reka’s Arabic community, and conservative politician Mihajlo Diklić. The pair had three separate interviews about the controversy, with one interview seeing a cameo from a former olympic baseball player, who phoned in to condemn Banfigrade owner Yuriwić and apologists like Diklić. “This issue will likely continue to matter,” Weljkowić wrote.

Broadcasting Changes
A new broadcasting contract was ratified by the Executive Committee and its auxiliary finance committee. The new TV deal sees Televizija-4 become the new primary host in Zeta Reka for the FLF-ZRiH. The new domestic broadcasting deal will air a higher amount of third levels on higher numbered channels owned by the parent company of Televizija-4. Another policy to shop the league harder in other nations was approved by a narrow vote due to the increased ad budget being seen as, “excessive,” by a group of delegates. “We are pleased to partner with the Federal Football League,” a statement from Televizija-4 executive Wukmir Mladenowić said in bold letters, “We hope to provide the highest quality content to the public. The Federal Football League is no small part of Televizija-4’s goal.”

The existence of the aforementioned “Grand League” came into focus again. Top clubs lobbied during the off season for higher an advertising cut based on the “prominence” and “drawing power” of a club or match up. After receiving some concessions, it has been alleged in the press that leaders from teams like DD Porto Nowi and Aleiusia Capital were unhappy with the numberers as they were.

Other Updates
The league meeting approved a shift in Rekadom’s regional qualifying events. This was a formality. Now four groups of four will play one another for three guaranteed slots in Division 1, plus a playoff spot for another top flight space. Čast, the country’s largest sportswear manufacturer, was approved for the new match ball of the Federal League. The balls will be used across all competitions covered in these articles. The “Kuark-D720” ball is a smooth, modern option for the league. Reports are that a new slew of official league sponsorships will be sought in new and unique places, such as bedding, basket weaving, and toothpaste.
Regional Qualifying
With one hundred teams in the hunt, a feeling of excitement was in the air as the federal league began. All around the country the best were separated from the rest. Who and who lost will be put in the record books forever, along with some of the names and tales that shaped this season from the very beginning.

Sarkewaka Strikers 2-2 AK Raspon
AK Stanimir 5-0 Kovgrade

AK Stanimir and AK Raspon won and drew twice to start their campaigns. Sarkewaka Strikers were distant contenders, but gave Kovgrade a win. A pivotal game with Raspon hosting Stanimir wasn’t close, but Raspon made two late goals to fool the fans. It was a poor breakdown, and had coach Tea-Hong whipping his team into shape. Kovgrade paid the price when Stojan Heiden scored four goals, after pulling a hat trick against Strikers and a goal against Raspon. “Top scorer in three goals. I had a good time,” Heiden said after qualifying had passed. Luka Fucaz from Raspon scored the most goals of any player in the region. The forward was marked down with a brace against AK Stanimir, plus two goals versus the other teams.

DD Porto Nowi were an early favorite in this group, and won without major issues. The matches were quite recreational. With the exception of two matches, the former champs led at the half each time. Astra AK was in both of these games, but failed to win when hosting DD Porto Nowi thanks Arnald Gal scoring off the bench. Some in Porto Nowi have become bored of qualifying, “It’s all a formality,” head coach Niko Draganić said to the media after a low strength win against cross town rivals Porto Nowi Athletik. Draganić continued declaring that, “the system needs an overhaul, and we all know it.”

After the first half of this group, each team had three points, and the max was five. Davn lost twice, and will be heading back to the oblast league. Woz won the games they needed to make the group close, but had to settle for two straight draws. Woz also found a way to score with seven players. It was do or die for both Porto Nowi OR and FK Ofau because both teams would be in danger of the third tier if they has sat at eight points. Ofau lost their top scorer from last season due to a training camp injury, but he came on as a sub on the last day. Ofau’s head coach lined up with a defensive formation, but was down by two goals at the half. They equalized in the second half after they were a man up. Veteran Miloš Antonić, an Ofau sub, got himself carded for a bad tackle against Porto Nowi striker Albert Ewald, who left the pitch with a broken fibula. Stankojan Alekić scored a penalty to keep “the teachers” top flight eligible.

Handler Svile and Ottowić County entered a horse race for supremacy. With another do or die finale, the clubs were level at the half from goal in the opening third. A bit of foreign flare was interjected in the second half, when Ko-Oren’s Kherenuk Narhaundrinthen threw in to Murphtanian youngster Daniel Simpson. A pass to the right wing allowed the young winger Josef Schirmer to score. The average age in the play? 18 years and two thirds. Needing a comeback, Ottowić pressed hard, but lost thanks to a final goal on the breakaway rallied by Iwan Perdrić.

Athletik Zanatlija had the worst luck of any team in the region, scoring in only one match, facing litany of injuries over the next two games along both the front and middle thirds. Budget cuts saw Ogroven Sportlich lose players in its football department, and so they declined. The Preo Team ended up picking the bones, losing only one time. However, their record was just poor enough to see them denied an automatic slot in Division 1. We’ll find out why shortly.

Industriejskigrade were sour performers due to injuries. FK Esseglein saw a poor string of results as the club seeks new investing parties.

Vanguardi’s defense gave up a high amount of goals, but were able to keep clean sheets agains the top teams when using a full strength backline. The team feels the sting of losing Wlad Wlad, but some say that Vanguardi will be able to keep goals away in the top flight. Spasavanje-Policija won’t be getting that chance, they only enter division two with a new coach and a miraculous unbeaten second half. Alkemost Football got two points in their final four games with a young and inexperienced squad.

Preo Team 1-3 FKP Matov-Uri (0-1, 1-2)

The Preo Team were a goal short of Division 1, and thus has to play against the third division local champions form Matov-Uri. Despite being underdogs, Football Klub Profesionalni Matov Uri scored once on a tap in the first half of the series. The pastel colored shirts of FKP Matov-Uri dashed round the pitch, and bookmakers had to adjust their odds for the final game. The Preo Team responded to their shocking loss with a seventy two minute lead in the next mach. FKP equalized thanks to an own goal from Preo Team’s Abu-Ali Rasim. Near the end of the match a tackle saw backup Preo Team defender Luka Orić sent off, and the ensuing penalty from Wladmir Markešić put the Ogroven champions from last season into the top flight. This series of failures will lead to a coaching change for sure at the Preo Team.

After fifty goals combined were scored in twenty one matches, Platinastigrade were out to a huge lead over the pack, lacking a major challenger. The other teams slotted into the top flight were Banfigrade and Wahrsager Der Berg. By the last match day, Strumsburg Pogozdowati had been eliminated from top flight contention thanks to a four goal loss to Platinastigrade. Banfigrade and Wahrsager played each other in the final match, with heir fates and Bergsteiger's in the balance. Two early goals were scored, and a bunkered down Banfigrade stopped Wahrsager from from sneaking into the top level.

Kven raced past Žitarice, Ribar, and Ovrâd with three clean victories, and drew their next two games. A final thumping of Ovrâd sealed another unbeaten run in qualifying. The other clubs held just three points after four matches. Ribar started slow, but came back with a lot of fury as four goals were scored by a loanee from DD Porto Nowi. Ovrâd was in the hunt according to the press, but lost to Žitarice Union at a bad time. Žitarice advanced in part from having two home matches to close out the group, unlike Ovrâd who had none. Ovrâd also lost by five to Kven thanks to a total collapse of the back line.

Traktor Klub ended up washing out hard this time, losing every match but two in qualifying, and going though one manager per draw. TPWO were a shock promotion in last season’s Hügeltaldom South League. They put up a fight, being one point behind the leader before an away loss to Beestagrade. Fruchtbarkiet got into a drag race for first with Beestagrade because of Fruchtbarkiet’s ultra powerful attack. After eight matches Beestagrade won out via their goal difference and the return of injured starter Nikolai Pram.

Capital’s streak of qualifications continued after some narrow matches in the first round were followed up by two landslide series. Aleiusia Riverside has a qualifying half that was weaker on paper, but only won two games, drawing three and losing once against South Aleiusia. Riverside had to come from behind against, Kosmopolitisch-Kosmopolitskog, scoring the last three goals of the series. A true shock result came in the second round, as Spartan-Mraw won at home against the Division 2 champs. The losses lead to mass staff sacking at Imperalismus. Stajkowon Hokwok scored three of Imperialismus’ six goals, but he couldn’t carry the team in the end. Mraw looked for another magical result in the play-ins after drawing twice with Riverside. Finansijskigrade provided the opposition, giving up 16 goals in their last four games. The insane results didn’t come in the Play-in, as Finansijskigrade pulled away in the first half of the first match.

FKP Matov-Uri were able to runaway with the group, sans a single loss to the otherwise winless Porto Nowi OR. Finansijskigrade played with some short term injuries, and placed second due to a deep attacking pool. Žitarice moved in with an aggressive 4-4-2 format that deviated from their regional line up. They had four goal followed by a four goal loss, but were middle of the road. Wahrsager Der Berg and their cash strapped lineup lacked any advantages against these teams.

Division 1 Previews
The Federal Football League, wanting to promote it's four sportswear partners, decided to hold a contest for the best public recreations of the Division 1 Kits. The contest was won by a young girl, Dušica, age 12. The hope of the art is that it would "increase hype" according to it's creator

AK Stanimir
National Ranking: 6th
Last performance: 6th in Division 1, Cup runners-up
Appearances: 17th
Appearance Streak: 14 (since season 64)
Championship Titles: 12
Stadium: Stadion Vojska - 15,000 cap
Sponsor: E.K. Zabawa
Last season, Stanimir lead the league in early stages, but as time went on they went from title contenders, to Challenger’s Cup contenders, to settling for a cup final defat. Despite the upsetting results, head coach Moon Tea-Hong from Quebec has turned up again for another season in the city of Porto Nowi. Stanimir are a youthful side in some places, with captain Klaudio Radkov the sole starter from Stanimir’s last title victory.

The 4-3-3 sees captain Radkov play near Quebecois attacker Se-Yoon Ji, who was a strong bench player last season. Heiden, Vlahović, and Djokawić form a dangerous trident in the front. Stanimir is known in the modern day for its attack, but a combination of veterans and youngsters look to keep the goal safe and sound. There’s also a keepers race to worry about, for now the starting role is on nineteen year old Björnólfur Ernestisson from Græntfjall, however the backups could rise up in a pinch. Could this be the season for Stanimir?

*appearance streak predates professional era
The arrival of Janko Perlog as the new head coach sees some large changes to the defending champ’s makeup. They can still run a 4-4-2, but three at the front was the formation for five of Capital six qualifying games. Another massive change is Bogdan Rawić’s exit, sold off to Savojarna despite reports of the National Team number nine being unhappy with a move. In exchange, Nepharan Constantine Koellner has arrived after playing in Nephara’s truly world class league. Koellner is backed up by club veterans Jad and Tedorow Noske, who have mostly inverted themselves along the wings. The trio’s chances are made by two major club legends, David Dix and Luka Lukić, plus Lysistrata Carter, signed away from AFC Treason.

The back line has had to adjust as well, Stanko Yakowić is still resting after two bad leg and limb injuries, and while his twink Janko can hold the line, Steffanow Kostessen and youth graduate Wladen Momirić are the new center back pair. Put all of this together with Hermann Hamppe, who’s getting a shot in the starting rotation along the wings, and sturdy keeper Earl Wilson. The defending champs are still the odds on favorites, but there’s a few challengers left to list.

Following up two title contenders, Riverside are not pegged for much this season. The club has tried to plug holes in the hull, and had to squeeze into Division 1 with just two wins out of six qualifying games. The two new signings for the club are Martijn Van Straaten, from Capital, and Majid Dana, who tied for fifth in the scoring charts last season with FKP Ottowić County. Dana is playing behind Kubaun Zalko, who’s been a solid but unspectacular striker for the club over the years. On defense, Riverside was the fifth best team last season, and no fundamental changes have been made to squad. Should the new attackers score early and often, the media may regret their quiet reception of this side.

Bergsteiger were humble last season, only winning eight games. They did curiously enough win by large margins, as they had a positive goal differential while finishing in the bottom quartile. Bergsteiger’s top sports team was also able to play up the competition. Bergsteiger drew Vanguardi, VZRH, Capital, DD Porto Nowi and Stanimir in the first half of the season, and they even kept themselves even over the season against Porto Nowi and Capital. Many point shavings against major clubs can’t be a coincidence, and while top player Tomislaw Radowić was lost to a club in Græntfjall, Bergsteiger’s qualification is an indication that the club is still running full steam ahead.

An unexpectedly rocky road has been traveled by DD Porto Nowi over the past three seasons. After the club reached it’s zenith of four straight titles, and later eight titles in eleven seasons, Porto Nowi have failed in three straight leagues, and only have a single cup title. This season appears to be a season of change, with thirty nine year old keeper Bosko Nowak out of the starting role, replaced by protege Wasim Waldić. The backline has been adjusted, with Ottowić County’s Wuk Koziwier coming into the club. Vice Captain Iwan Dragobertstein will look to coordinate himself and fellow center back Koziwier with two of the best wing backs in the country. The midfield trio from the club’s final last two trophy winning seasons is back in full force, with an average age of 31. Time will be up for an unstoppable era of DD Porto Nowi, and Rybki has already announced his retirement effective next season. Mullow Dorboslawić, Rybki, and Wikotor Dassow will look for one last run. Eight top class players will look to supply Walt Courtenay, Arnald Gal, and Vladi Di with opportunities vital for bringing glory back to the Energija Rekadom Stadion.

Banfigrade’s external issues have been a media circus. Tell all books, racism, lawsuits, players leaving, players coming, it’s been over a year and half of controversy. On the pitch the team has been shaken up in some ways more than others. Offense for Banfigrade has diminished severely since the loss of Stajkowon Hokwok. The defense been shaken without world class defensive midfielder Stani Gröss. There are slowly improvements to the side being put into place. The back line is being aided by DD Porto Nowi exile Kohen Strauss, Mustafa Al Marsi, the first minority player in club history, and captain Jakosam Ljubisawić will build up in the center to Aligatoro Kawall. While wing backs pass into the box, they have been able to make runs of their own.

Finansijskigrade debuted in Division 1 during their first season and finished 11th. That was almost twenty years ago, and since then the club’s performances had had peaks and valley equivalent to its funding. Right now the club is in a state of ritz and glamour, winning a Division 2 title two seasons before kicking off an appearance streak in Division 1.

Finansijskigrade is playing again with a high line, in your face strategy. New signing Max-Otto Bergmann has been spectacular for Finansijskigrade, just as he was while on loan to the club last season. The Bergmann attack is backed up by passing and scoring from players like Dragon Rybić, Wladmir Pokrajak, and many more players who could make a splash in the transfer market if they were not tied up. Two new players should said the team this season. Aleksander Bjelica on the wings, and Shawn Lowe from Tikariot could be the missing link in a struggling back line.

FKP Matov-Uri were they best third tier team last season, dominating the regional league of Ogroven in Zeta Reka. The biggest football only club in their city, FKP have never been major rivals for VZRH Matov-Uri, but are now back in the top flight after almost a decade of down time. Reactions to the club’s lags roster are mixed. Some of the strong players from last season remain, and many are unseasoned in the top flight. Signings and loan deals have been made to compensate. However, with three players added mid or post qualifying, the side may take most of the season to make a splash.

Handler Svile FK are a humble side originating from the textile industry of Zeta Reka, a trade that is knowingly past its prime. The club looks to uplift their community on their second top flight excursion. A fold of young players from around the world will be mixed with a journeymen’s side captained by Division 2 award winner Iwan Perdrić. Tactically the club is a bit conservative, but they can transpose into a 4-1-4-1 formation utilizing a box to box midfielder.

The double champs from the middle of nowhere are back with an unbeaten record in qualifying. Most of the key names are back in action even with a new head coach who was once the national team assistant. Iwanow Schultz and Wladmir Janić are the only exits from the squad. With a reshuffled formation, Forwards Miloš Simeoniwić, Ofau player Alek Panić, and striker Dmitar Darganić have formed an aggressive trident. Darganić is tied for assists with Želmir Kolarowić thanks to the young striker dropping back, and his partners finishing in some precarious positions. Width is being provided by two careful wingbacks, while a solid center backs will make sure Radu Bartok doesn’t have to sweat for a paycheck. While the general public hates public money sponsoring this team, people have to admit the club’s roster is worth being jealous of, and that just makes everyone angrier.

An athletic club focused on other games, Vanguardi’s focus on football has lined up with the sports growing popularity, as it is now one of the two largest sports in the nation. For Vanguardi, the football revenue has gone back into this venture, with their stadium set to be remodeled into a state of the art 14,000 seat multi use venue. On the field, Vanguardi are looking to send off their old home with a title win.

Internal strife has led to issues on the pitch for Platinastigrade, who are now controlled by a power sharing arrangement between Director of Operations Stado Jakowić, new head coach Helmutow Reich, in his season of retirement, and a quirky group of former players and managers. The on the field approach is a, “back to basics” scheme, devised by Reich. The club has returned to it’s club defining 5-4-1 formation, something almost extinct from the game in Zeta Reka, but used by Platinastigrade over sixty years ago. The team itself is slowly aging, but with a new set up, and top level talent, Platinastigrade’s fans are looking to see their first rewards of corporate ownership.

Porto Nowi OR was founded for fitness instructors during the socialist era of Zeta Reka. Slowly during the professional era the team has gone from third rate or worse and is now team that has flirted with the top levels of the game. They have an injured striker, but a good core that hasn’t changed much since they were mid table two seasons ago. A good season now, and staying around next time, would be the best outcome for the club.

Ribar are back after two seasons of misfortune in regional qualifying. A 4-4-2 Diamond comes into the top flight with a lot of swagger for a team ranked in the 20s. Head coach Jurgen Djowić played for and slowly moved up the ranks of the club, and has been letting the horses run since he took over. With steak red and white outfits, Ribar ended up just getting into Division 1 after drawing five of their nine matches. They give up around a goal a game, and that could be an issue since they average under two goals per match. The fans from the vineyard are looking to the imports from DD Porto Nowi, Adham Al-Mutairi and Jakow Kirstowić to seal the deal.

Changing sponsors, VZRH Matov-Uri look to change their title failure and move up a position. The old days may be over, but this ex-military club is more popular than it has been in years. Head Coach Riki Schemlling has brought a style that seems to run rings around opponents, while at the same time being quite defensive. Three center backs is a rarity this season across the top two divisions. However three good defenders mixed with young wingbacks and a powerful midfield was a winning formula last season, but it’s not all perfect. The defenders are all over thirty, and have never possessed the best on ball skill. Zoran Kalinić has had difficulties scoring as a lonely striker, but they his accuracy has been world class so far. Obviously, if the issues aren’t an issue, VZRH could very well could be champions.

The city of Žitarice is a bit out of the way from the rest of Zeta Reka, but it’s not an unimportant place. The frontier city has two clubs, and Union is by far the most successful. Over the off season, the team secured a sponsorship with a home realtor company, and used some of the money to buy veterans with top level experience. These new players were not supposed to get here however. The quirky frontier gang won with a cautious system two times, and needed a miracle to get through the playoffs. The miracle came in the form of an attack heavy formation, a suggestion from the players themselves. The new roster was able to sneak past scored seven goals in their first two playoff games, and that was enough. Will it be enough again?

The season kicked off with the defending champions from Aleiusia shutting down the touted defense of Platinastigrade. Constantine Koellner smashed through early in the box, before getting on the good end of a breakaway, and defender Hermann Hamppe scored later on. Capital's scoring ways were stopped by VZRH Matov-Uri the next day.

After one sixth of the season, Finansijskigrade are the surprise leaders, with Max-Otto Bergmann scoring seven goals in four appearances thanks to four against Bergsteiger, three from open play, and one from a penalty. Kven are less attacking, but keep winning by a single goal three times, but losing at home to the league leaders thanks to two Bergmann goals. The historically powerful clubs of DD Porto Nowi, Capital, VZRH and AK Stanimir are doing well, and the double digit sides in the standings. Vanguardi, league runners-up, are doing slightly better after fives games compared to last season. Of course, the season is still young, and any team can grow or contract. Handler Svile started in fifth, but as their sample of games has grown, the team has shuffled down two places every match. Platinastigrade on the other hand a very poor start, but are now near the middle of the pack. Overall this is anyone’s season to win, but the winless teams, the scoreless FKP Matov-Uri and the gunslingers from Žitarice are the longest shots so far.

On day six, Finansijskigrade slowed down against Žitarice, only scoring a goal, while FKP Matov-Uri scored their first to steal a draw. Another steal came when Handlr Svile scored late to come back against a sloppy DD Porto Nowi. The loss was bad for Porto Nowi, who then lost by three at home against the defending champions. Two straight wins seem to show that the club is coming back. However, a lack of consistency and some tension in the front office could stall growth. Finansijskigrade lost their lead to Capital, and then drew Capital in a ten goal showdown. However, Max-Otto Bergmann's leg was hurt for an extended period of time during the second half. After eight games there was a four way tie in the point column, with VZRH and Kven a win behind the clubs Capital, Finansijskigrade, Vanguardi and AK Stanimir. Three of these teams won on day nine, and Porto Nowi dominated headlines when thy scored six goals away.

DD Porto Nowi and Kven, two teams with a hot feud for the past four years, ended up drawing thanks to two goals from Miloš Simeoniwić in the first half, and goals from Arnald Gal and Koijok Janić in the later minutes of the game. DD Porto Nowi threw a spanner into the works of Ribar PRD, ordering the return of Jakow Kristowić. The move was lambasted in the press as a desperate move to improve DD’s limited attack. One article stated “DD Porto Nowi’s trident has scored nine goals in open play out of the club’s twenty three. Vladi Di has yet to get on the scoresheet, and backup Gligorijewić hasn’t been better.” One attack that may be looking up is Porto Nowi OR, with Albert Ewald starting games nine and ten with a finished recovery from his leg injury.

On day ten, Stanimir were left in the cold by Ribar's backline, Stojan Heiden's goal was called offside after much debate. Tempers also flared when Vanguardi's Leo Rosenstiel tripped up Zosimo Halas for a card in a game the Aleiusia Star called "The International Incident." Stanimir hoped to take the lead because of Capital’s failure to win, but Moon Tae-Hong players got caught up in a draw of their own. Žitarice Union won their third matchup, climbing up the ladder. Finansijskigrade shockingly lost to FKP Matov-Uri, who finally felt victory after a tap in from the young and fit Dawor Volland. With Finansijskigrade's loss, Vanguardi were thus in the all important fourth place slot.

Riverside have sacked their head coach after losing to Bergsteiger. Riverside club is thirteen points away from Challenger's Cup play. Reports are that Marko Eisenack, fresh from Zanatlija FK, told management that the players are not an issue for his new club. At the same time, the team has lined up in a 4-3-3 since Eisenack’s arrival, and Kubaun Zalko hasn’t seen much practice time according to leaked reports. VZRH Matov-Uri goalkeeper Wukan Radovlawić suffered a knee injury in an auto accident, and Luka Otto will get a few games of early experience. One man now healed is Skewar Skop of Platinastigrade, who is looking to restore order in one of Zeta Reka’s unluckiest defenses. Vanguardi made a shift of their own, Albertow Schnabel was moved into a more central role to cover up a suspension for Leo Rosenstiel. Edmund Anderbrügge, a bright youngster, might be tested on day thirteen by Finansijskigrade's wild attack.

The injured Bergmann is leading, but it'll be tough for him to keep a lead, he's not set to return for five more games from his wounds. Koellner has done well for Capital in his debut, as one would expect of a starter from Nephara. While Bergmann's insane goals have looked like an egg in the moonlight, Koellner has cracked the competition under pressure. Jess Kijanskas scored in seven straight appearances, putting them in the golden boot race for a second season in a row. Zrno Djordjewić has scored four goals from or shortly after set peices, running into the box like a dog chasing the tires. The other top scoring defender is Yuri Kewić, DD Porto Nowi's class wingback, who's been on the run of his career. With just sixteen minutes of game time, Kewin Neshkow has the best goals per second ratio in the league, scoring seconds before the end of his season debut against Bergsteiger. The tall forward has a scoring drought of just eleven minutes.

In terms of assists Lysistrata Carter and Ratimir Grbić have been the most consistent helper for their clubs. The pair combine for sixteen assists, with nine belonging to Grbić, a player who's had horrific fortune with direct net attacks. It takes two to tango of course, and some other players have done great things for less well off clubs. Rankoslaw Antonijewić hasn't scored, but Vanguardi's captain has still assisted six. Martijn Van Straaten has assisted the two open play goals for Riverside, asserting his place in a currently underwhelming roster.

With One third of the league finished, expect at least one more article, maybe two, as the season flies by. Already, without telling anything specific, some big results have taken place.

After fifteen games, Capital are up in front, with only on loss and nine wins. Capital’s peers in the one loss club club, AK Stanimir, are in third place. Sandwiched in between is the, choking the life out the opposition over seven times, with nine wins. Vanguardi and Kven are tied at twenty seven points, while early contenders Finansijskigrade are a point down, and DD Porto Nowi is a point below. The rest of the table is under twenty points, with Ribar PRD gain half of that through draws. Žitarice are the opposite, with a league low for draws, and ten defeats. “We’re playing fun football,” Luka Draganić told critics online. FKP Matov-Uri have a league low of their own, with only a single win to their name.

Josip Jowanowić threw out his hip late into Ribar’s match against Platinastigrade, and that man both of Ribar’s starting strikers are not available this season. DD Porto Nowi’s head coach Niko Draganić saw himself replaced by his assistant after the team gave up three goals to FK Banfigrade. In addition, Vladi Di, with no goals and one assist, was removed from the starting line up. Vice captain Iwan Dagobertsen lost his spot after publicly calling out the move. DD’s interim coach, Hans Jankowić, is in a tough spot as the season is halfway over. Hans Vilkinssön scored three times for Handler Svile after scoring nothing before. He scored twice against Finansijskigrade, but it wasn’t enough to stop a loss. Finansijskigrade won that matchup thanks to the hat trick from Wladmir Pokrajak. Vanguardi gave up their 10th goal on match fifteen, their defense showing no signs of slowing up after the loss of Wald Wald. Žitarice may need a crash course on line play however, as they gave up seven from open play in one game. Riverside were the victor with Majia Dana, Van Straaten and Kubaun Zalko scoring twice, with Radić and Nenad Srdjowić scoring one time.

A multi man, two woman brawl took place against AK Stanimir, the media claims that Stanimir has a poor attitude. “We didn’t even punch first,” captain Klaudio Radkov told a reporter a day after his club’s fourteenth match. Former Aleiusia Capital striker Bogdan Rawić comment online that “that fullback was trying to take Stefan’s legs off” in reference to the flagrant foul from Ratimir Grbić to Stefan Biltmas that triggered a shove from Tedorow Noske and a solid right hand back. The benches cleared, with Lysistrata Carter looking like an “amazon” according to the cover of the Aleisua star, along with a photo of her climbing into the fray past teammate Djuro Sanja, who’s massive frame couldn’t turn away a half dozen Capital players from receiving some sort of punishment on the pitch. The match was finished after a delay, and the eight a side play afterwards looked like an exhibition. “Scholars will examine this one.” The domestic TV commentator stated as the clock wound down in a draw.

Neither side is happy with multi mach bans for starting caliber players, but they will have to make due. Koellner, Carter, Hamppe, Madić, Djokawić, and Oronhyatekha were banned for two matches. Stojan Heiden was given a five match ban for foot stamping and a bicycle kick to the chest of Wladan Momirić. Momirić himself was given a red card with Beni Baum, and they plus Stanimir players Niko Sllawik and Ratmir Grbić were cut for a single day from their sides. “It’s just a total s**t show, really” Stanimir captain Klaudio Radkov told the media is a packed spin room. “That was a game to be at” Capital Youth player Marko Ratmirić said, attending as backup due to a last minute roster shift. “I think she pecked his face with a finger, crazy stuff.” Three players took advantage of these suspensions to score, one from Capital, Janson Atangana, and for Stanimir, Iwano Hundertmark and reserve/youth player David Titowić, all got their first ever goals for Division 1.

Under the new cup format, the league and football association’s combined cup event starts with regionalized matches. With more teams in some regions components of the federal republic than others, there were an uneven number of opening matchups. TPWO ended up being the biggest winners of the round, dominating the northern Hügeltal Platin Football Werein. Porto Nowi Athletik’s Ronold Markus looked to steal TPWO’s thunder by scoring four of his club’s goals against KWW. These landslide wins, and a five goal win from Fire Rescue, were on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to the fourteen penalties needed to decide Soleburg vs. Baurnclub. A major windstorm was throwing off the ball, and the players couldn’t find the net. Nikiloji’s players prevented themselves from having to play in a shoot out by scoring twice after the one hundredth minute. Matov-Uri Jedanaset needed last second heroics to win, scoring from a in swinging corner just before extra time would kick in.

Five reserve teams qualified for the cup, and three are already eliminated. The victorious reserve squads, VZRH and Plastinastigrade, played at home. A few fourth level clubs ended up surviving this round, one of these was not FK Keppleburg, who had to forfeit due to a walkout from their players over backpay and facility decay. Police are investigating a threat of violence against the players of FK Dvorac Ioze by deranged fans of the eliminated Keppleburg. “We were disappointed,” Dvorac Ioze captain Bartolomej Danić said to a local tv station, “but we’re through now, nothing to be done about that fact.”

FK Ofau, a team who dropped two levels at the start of this season, utterly demolished FKP Cawgrade, with Goran Wladić scoring a hat trick in the first half. Four players need up scoring for Ofau, and there was even an own goal in the first half. A great comeback saw Matov-Uri Jedanaset score three goals in fifteen minutes against Athletik Crvenopoklon. AK Nowi Aleiusia looked poised for a landslide victory, but then W.5 Station scored at fifty, and fifty eight minutes played. The comeback was a false hope however. Nowi Aleiusia, a splinter of Aleiusia Capital, has never been in the 2nd round of the cup before, and will be playing ever deeper into the tournament. Korvann Cannons FK, who made the semi finals a few years ago, are out in extra time against FK 246m. Two reserve teams from Glavni entered at this stage with both failing to advance. Zelan Boulevard FK were able to grind out a win, scoring twice after eighty minutes, while it took longer for the little known Železnički FK to score.

A bunch of teams were fortunate to get byes, and Univerzitet u Aleiusia coach was livid about it during his teams loss to FK Ofau. The older man threw his clothing on the ground, and assaulted a league official. Another dishonorable game was Dvorac Ioze and Matov-Uri Jedanaset. Ten yellow cards were handed out of the course of the match, with seven being given to the losing side. The tactical foul did help Železnički FK avoid giving up a goal in extra time, but their right midfielder missed his penalty, ending the scrappy teams cup run against a “snooty” Politehnika. Zelan Boulevard FK and VZRH Matov-Uri’s secondary squad kept the fourth tier alive in the cup. VZRH youth player Branislaw Mucić being dubbed “player of the match” by a cup analyst. The nineteen year old right midfielder assisted the only goal of the game by beating three defenders. Plastinastigrade 2 ended up losing to Sts' Katedrala without ever holding the lead. The match was tied at two for most of the second half, but a poorly defended free kick ended Platinastigrade 2’s cup run.

The Division 2 clubs came into play in this round. Only two inter division matchups ended a Division 2 side’s campaign. AFK Imperialismus battled Ovrâd Fruchtbarkiet, scoring once in each half. FK South Aleiusia gave up three goals to their striped kit wearing region mates. Striped Kits’ Cezar Millandrowski is still looking for a breakout season, and scored twice in six minutes. Zanatlija FK, Spartan-Mraw, and Proud Tigers went dow against lower rated competition. Zanatlija held an early lead, but lost it just as quickly, then after over an hour without a scoring play. Veteran player and first year Zelan signing Barto Joakimić won the game with his first ever cup winner. “My mom turned eighty today, so happy birthday mom” he said in the parking lot on a video recorded by the club’s fan webpage. Spartan-Mraw wished they had a dramatic game against DD Aleiusia. The all Glavni game was a mopping from bell to bell, Mraw only scoring after eighty one minutes. Proud Tigers were also unable to hold any kind of lead against FK Ofau, but did keep the game close until the final twenty minutes when they gave up the game winner. Commendant Wukowić, loaned to Ofau from Kven, scored a tap-in serviced by wing man Iwan Ilić.

Traktor Klub and Wahrsager Der Berg really piled on the goals, with Der Berg’s Baskow Pejić scoring a hat trick against a bewildered Jedanaset back rank. The only extra time match-up saw FK Ovrâd’s Wolfgang Kalrić score off the bench in the ninety seventh minute against Zrno. Kalrić was one of the three teenagers who scored. Beestagrade’s nineteen year old Petar Zwonkowić equalized off the bench, but seventeen year old Politehnika prospect Antonin von Klinkowström scored three minutes later. Politehnika’s backup central midfielder is an interesting character. Being a von Klinkowström, Antonin is a descendent of Hügeltaldom’s final and longest lasting ruling dynasty and is the youngest nephew of Hügeltaldom’s pretender king, “Friedrich VI.”

Capital topped the table, and lost twice in three matches. Platinastigrade seemed to have a strong memory of their embarrassing home defat on opening day, so they held Capital scoreless for over an hour. Two matches later, Capital found themselves taken out by a goal from Vanguardi’s Jan Thimig. Of course, this was all blamed on the suspensions, but many solid players were beaten by Vanguardi. Capital came back with two clean sheets as the rust wore off. Stanimir blasted into the lead on day 17, beating Handler Svile by four goals away from home. Capital and VZRH drew when Jad crossed to his partner Noske for a stoppage time goal. The same day Bergsteiger gained a measure of revenge against Finansijskigrade for the 1-6 drumming earlier in the season by winning in front a packed crowd. Kven saw an odd rash of stomach cramps sideline multiple members of their start eleven, and the extra losses undid two wins. Another team that felt pain in this sixth of the season was DD Porto Nowi. Arnald Gal was sidelined due to “family issues” during the match against AK Stanimir and Platinastigrade. His absence was felt, but Vladi Di did score once in these two matches. The beneficiary of these clubs experiencing woe was Vanguardi, who have momentum on their side, even with stinging losses on their record this year.

Handler Svile had a real rough time, with five straight scoreless games, and almost ten straight matches without a win. Head coach Wladmir Gaten lost the locker room before match twenty. Reports are that the final straw was losing by eight goals in three games. With an interim coach, Svile lost by four goals at the National Sports Complex. Bergsteiger also lost by four goals that afternoon. Bergsteiger are a mid table team with a negative goal difference that has a higher absolute value than the club’s points total, that’s impressive. Žitarice Union have ben getting hammered around bottom of the table, but fans keep showing up to their games. “I guess wins and losses can sell tickets,” sports executive Tomi Wladoslawić wrote on social media. In last place is poor FKP Matov-Uri, with the lowest scoring in the league and the lowest number of wins.

Max-Otto Bergmann will be retuning around match twenty five, key in helping his club, and his own trophy hunt. The Golden boot race has some solid contenders, with Bergmann
Koellner, Vlahović, Dana, Kijanskas, and Brankowić all in double digits. Hot shot players like Arnald Gal, Stojan Heiden, Miloš Simeoniwić and, Želmir Kolarowić. Stef Brankowić has the most penalties scored, and is the top scoring midfielder. Defender Yuri Kewić has scored six goals from cutting in from the flanks. There were a few extra own goals with Kven being the most fortunate team in the league thus far.

With only a short time left, there’s still a long road ahead for the teams in Division 1, we’ll find out who won, along with the results of Division 2, and the Cup finals in the third part of this series.

It was all over then and there. A tight horse race climaxed with a do or die final day for two teams. Vanguardi and Stanimir won both of their games, giving Stanimir the championship. Challenger’s Cup qualification saw a lot of teams slip away before Finansijskigrade, Kven and VZRH sat fifth to third, with Vanguardi, Capital and Stanimir still vying for the title. The title result was obvious enough, and Vanguardi slipped in, Capital too. Thus three teams were left to battle it out for the final Challenger’s Cup slot. Three dwindled down to one pithing minutes when Finansijskigrade drew Hander Svile and lost pace with the others. Stanimir’s sixty two goals were impressive, and because the offensive core was back by a stellar defensive group, AK Stanimir ended a long trophy doubt. Coach Tea-Hong shook hands with the Football Association president as Stoajn Heiden, Klaudio Radkov, Se-Yoon Ji, and Björnólfur Ernestisson hoisted the Federal Vase high into the air.

Kven and VZRH’s shared match had incredible importance, as Capital won by three goals against Banfigrade. It was a do or die game for Kven, and scoreless in the first half. Coach Hammerschmidt called in the legs of Rodawan Metzelder into the game, and he crossed to Kolarowić for a goal just six minutes later. Sadly for Kven, Michiel Wenmers was the next player to score, rebounding a free kick and finding the open spot. The clock was now deep into the eighties, and the ball rolled past Kven’s alternate starter Carl Gerstacker. This wasn’t an issue, because Willis was in position to intercept, but it turned out Willis had been pivoted away in the clutter midfield, and ball rolled on. Matov-Uri’s Axel-Finn Wladowić battled Kven’s Artur Draganić and won handily. Radu Bartok lunged, the ball curved more than estimated, and Zoran Kalinić casually redirected the ball into the net. The away stand roared, their team was now four points clear for international play. There wasn’t much drama after this, though two injuries cause the game’s stoppage time to run longer than any other final match.

Other teams ended up faltering, DD Porto Nowi were out of the top four for the first time in over a decade, and Platinastigrade’s purported improvement amounted to a single extra victory from last season. Bergsteiger’s defense really crumbled this season compared to the last, with major pieces out of the lineup. Riverside were the most tragic team of the division, climbing from seventh to fifteenth. Banfigrade did well, for a team in crisis. Of the division’s newcomers, region mates Porto Nowi OR and Handler Svile were tied on points, and OR’s goal differential was superior. Ribar PRD led the league in terms of draw across all divisions, leading at the half in four of their draws, and being tied in nine. Žitarice’s all or nothing approach was exciting, and made almost result decisive in one direction or the other, quality control is needed for them though, they lost twenty times. Lastly, poor old FKP Matov-Uri burned out after a thrilling qualifying run.

Most top level teams went through their first matches without much issue. Capital and Finansijskigrade had a real show of a match. Finansijskigrade played catch up before scoring their third and fourth goals one after the other. Both sides had a mix of first, second, or even lower choice players. Constantine Koellner was the extra time sub for capital, and in three minutes he ran over the man marking him for the game winner. Koellner almost scored a second time with of a free kick, but B-teamer Fenstermacher Schwartzhammer was given an infraction during the sequence. Schwartzhammer himself is controversially in the lineup, but was allowed to play as he was not selected for the reserve team in this cup.

Of all Division 1 eliminations, Žitarice was the only casualty caused by a lower tier side. Ofau and Žitarice had a drag out battle, with Ofau leading by two after forty five. A few subs later and Ofau’s midfield was broken down and the game was tied. Early into extra time, Ofau transitioned from a 4-4-2 into a 4-3-3 with Kven loanee Commendant Wukowić assisting star player Goran Wladić. Žitarice began to flood the box harder, with six men inside as midfielder Bentzo Lukawić fired an air ball. Markowić, Ofau’s left back, felt a hit to the shin and looked to see the ball in the net, the deflection taken advantage of by a quick thinking Šasa Imilić. Nine minutes later the match went to penalties. With each side missing their third kick. Žitarice’s seventh player was Šasa Imilić, who found the net. Ofau’s seventh was right winger Wladmir Kowen, a penalty taker from days gone by. One man shot under the post, the other did not.

Round 6

AK Stanimir (1) 2-4 Ribar PRD (1)
Ogroven Vanguardi FK (1) 6-2 FKP Matov-Uri (1)

Platinastigrade’s Janko Lexow scored early against VZRH, were able to keep pressure on, and did’t give up a goal. Arnald Gal scored a hat trick against FK Ofau in the first half. DD Porto Nowi quashed a strong run from a team that hasn’t had many tough opponents this season. Vanguardi saw Josip Jorowić pick up a hat trick and a shocking brace from Jan Thimig, who got a sweet long distance goal in stoppage time. Kven FK and AK Stanimir were knocked out in huge upsets by Bergsteiger and Ribar PRD. For Stanimir and Ribar, the match had single lead change, with Stanimir scoring in minutes before they gave up three goals in the first half, two scored by Petar Karić in what might be his breakout senior game. To add salt to the wound, Stanimir gave up an own goal shortly after scoring their second goal.

The match of the round was a part of the capital region’s hottest rivalry. Capital and Riverside have traded blows this season, but this time the game wasn’t high scoring. After seventy minutes and change there were zero goals scored. David Dix opened the dam when he hit a lob shot from the edge of the box. Riverside responded with a meager counter attack, and it looked like the game could end early. Riverside were fortunate however for a small bit of miscommunication in Capital’s lines. Backup forward Nenad Srdjowić wizzed past a confused back rank and Earl Wilson couldn’t dive soon enough. Extra time followed the late goals, and the two teams seemed uninterested in scoring for what felt like a decade. With the clock ticking, Van Straaten saw no other choice than to kick from thirty seven yards out against his former club, an out of position backside couldn’t shift in time, and Riverside advanced on a miracle.

Quater Finals
Aleiusia Riverside (1) 2-0 Striped Kits (2)
Bergsteiger FK (1) 3-2 Platinastigrade (1)
Ribar PRD (1) 2-0 AK Raspon (2)
Ogroven Vanguardi FK (1) 3-1 DD Porto Nowi (1)


Riverside took on cross town opponents Striped Kits and dominated in all categories, scoring twice in the second half. Striped Kits showed a lot of attacking gusto, but lacked flexibility against a top flight side. Bergsteiger danced with Platinastigrade, with both sides scoring twice in the first half. Platinastigrade seemed to slow down first, but were able to stave off a third goal until the eighty second minute, when Djuras Bartić passed over the line to Wladmir Djekić’s skull. Ribar PRD scored twice in the first half, with Oklop Muller and Petar Karić able to fly past one of the second division’s wildest clubs. DD Porto Nowi equalized early into the second half, but just three minutes later saw Jaxon Amador blow by Iwan Dagobertsen for his first goal in the cup. A counter from Jess Kijanskas sealed a big win for Vangaurdi’s trophy hunt, and was a sour note for Porto Nowi’s already rough season.

Semi-Finals
Ogroven Vanguardi FK (1) 1-1 (1-2 AET) Aleiusia Riverside (1)
Ribar PRD (1) 1-0 Bergsteiger FK (1)


Vanguardi hosted Riverside at the Vanguardi i Federativna Teret Kompanija Stadion under an evening’s rain. Riverside saw the return of keeper Klaudio Rekawić. Early the second half, Vanguardi were able to dig deep with a goal from Jess Kijanskas giving Vanguardi an edge. Riverside were behind on possession and chances thus far, but only needed eleven touches and two passes to score. Kubaun Zalko gave an impressive finish with Zalko heading in a cross. The even score forced extra time for the second time in Riverside’s run. The two teams were at a stalemate, tired legs leaving the game did little to help the scoring sheet. Zaur-Luka Igorić made a dangerous challenge against Iwan Djuričin while giving chase against a long dribble. A red card saw Vanguardi down to ten, and they adopted a 4-4-1 shape common for them in the uncommon situation they faced. Riverside for their part were not acting in a cavalier manner. However, Riverside were slowing pushing into the box, bit by bit. Klaudio Rekawić couldn’t see it coming, but a small slip of the ball allowed Nenad Srdjowić to score an all essential goal with only minutes left. Riverside’s first cup final ever. The club has clearly improved in the past four years, even with some rocky moments.

The other semi final was a defensive game where Ribar hosted Bergsteiger FK. Four shots were on goal, with one of ’s passing by the Bergsteiger keeper. Vitali Šnajder and Ranko Kowačech trid to finish Bergstieger’s two chances, but each were saved by a well rested Iwan Euller. Ribar’s win is a big achievement for a club that has been struggling the the last few years. “We’ve worked harder to get here than anyone else,” Ribar’s Football Director said to the press. Some old friends and new faces were able to launch the club to its first major trophy opportunity in almost a decade when they lost the 42nd Republic’s Cup final to AK Stanimir.
Republic’s Cup Final
Ribar PRD vs. Aleiusia Riverside
There were some fitness issues for both sides, the neutral right forward for Ribar has been out since the early rounds, forcing Karić to pivot leftwardly and for Iwan Haller to be brought up from the bench in a large amount of matches. A lack of attacking depth had made its mark on Ribar, but they have eight of their season opening starters out in the match. Regular starter Oklop Muller was injured in his thigh during his workout routine, and had to sit out some games. Muller will thus be on the bench for the second time since his recovery. Two backups are junior or senior B-team players. Forward Andrej Rastkowić has lingered around the senior teams and was playing senior ball in the third tier last season. B-teamer Badenow Grgić was a backup seven finals ago with Ribar. Not everything in the cup final will be an adjustment. Adham Al-Mutairi played in two straight finals for DD Porto Nowi a few seasons ago. Domonwinjkski will be looking to attack on the right as if nothing has changed, and the Euller brothers brought good spirits with them to the final.

Riverside’s back line felt a sting with two regulars sitting out. An assorted mix of players will play in or could be subbed into the back line. Former Riverside veteran Wukan Markowić was signed late into the season, and could play in his first cup match past the quarter finals. Attacking asset Ranko Radić will be playing as a substitute and will be replaced by the more technical Božidar Sašawić. A last minute return for Klaudio Rekawić before the semi-final put his recovery ahead of schedule. At the same time, the press has lambasted Riverside’s management for a risky decision. After being thrown around the pitch for a few games, Iwan Djuričin is reported to have asked to be a backup in the cup final. The duo of Majia Dana and Kubaun Zalko will look to score at any opportunity Lastly, goalkeeper Klaudio Rekawić will need to make big saves if the defenders become chaotic.

Summary
In the first half, the Ribar side were lax, confident after defending well away from home against Riverside on the final league match. Riverside didn’t seem too eager to crack the back four of Ribar, losing the ball often in the center, but gaining on the wings by overworking Miliošić and Ajda. After eleven minutes, Majia Dana made a brave run, and almost scored had he not shot into the shins of Billibad Probst. First blood was draw after a half hour when Zaid Ajda overlapped wonderfully, and got Matow’s pass for a two touch goal.

In the second half, Ribar seemed to be attacking harder, and scored a second time thanks to Petar Karić sliding deep in the box. Being down by a wide margin led to Riverside rebelling against their circumstances. They played wildly, making the mark on their fifth shot on goal. Nenad Srdjowić was covered well, but pivoted back to the waiting boot of Martijn Van Straaten. With Van Straaten’s goal, there were just sixteen minutes to equalize. Ribar opposed equality, and had one cunning way of scoring again, the corner. Adja’s backup Badenow Grgić was a keen corner player at one time, and he swing in nicely, Oklop Muller had been brought in early in the half, and he finally got on the scoresheet with his header. Three to one was the final score, with Ribar winning a cup from out of nowhere.

Captain Ogroven Matow was ecstatic about his team’s performance, saying, “We have pride in ourselves, our supporters, and our community.” Iwan Euller, who made four saves, celebrated with his half brother by singing songs of Hügeltaldom’s culture on a live mic. The move has proven controversial, after general election results from this month gave Hügeltalist separatists a large vote share in Ribar, to the disgust of people in Zeta Reka.

Stojan Heiden scored almost a goal per appearance, and won the golden boot for the first time in his career. Newcomer Constantine Koellner scored eighteen, a goal less than Heiden. Želmir Kolarowić was the highest scoring midifler, with six penalties, the joint highest total of the season. Wingback Yuri Kewić scored more than any other defender, with eight goals. Schawrzhammer's one goal in two sub appearances gave him the best goal:minute ratio, while poor Max-Otto Bergmann had a dream season cut down to size, but he still score once a game on average, a bit above his xg%

Preo Team and Ottowić seemed to be the class of the second tier this season, with teams like Beestagrade, Fruchtbarkiet, Zanatlija, and AFK Imperialismus doing well. At the halfway mark, Preo Team had not lost a single match, and Imperialismus were surging ahead with Stajkwon Hokwok leading the scoring charts with sixteen goals. Preo Team’s loss to Proud Tigers on day 20 of the season was a part of they rise into IFCF contention. A win against the league leaders was followed up by 3-0 win against Zanatlija and a 5-1 away victory versus Spasavanje-Policija. They drew Fruchtbarkiet 0-0 and beat Strumsburg Pogozdowati 1-0 and then FK Ovrâd 3-1. Ten teams could finish third during the final five matches, and Proud Tigers were now in the hunt.

Proud Tigers lost to Der Berg, then lost by three at home against Ottowić County. The loss was fatal for their camapign, as the entered that game from the 27th match day down five points. Converted forward Zdeslaw Markowić scored twice to confirm his quads qualification in Liga B. The other slots went to a one loss Preo Team, and Imperialismus. Hokwok won the golden boot with twenty two goals. There were also around fifty own goals throughout the league, a trio of them in Imperialismu’s 10-1 beatdown against Beesagrade, a staff tenure killer that one.
With those matches concluded, the most important segments of the Federal League are finished for the season, however, there could always be more reports from the newswire, so keep in touch.

Alternate players
GK: Björnólfur Ernestisson (GRF) (AK Stanimir)
GK: Wukan Radovlawić (VZRH)
DF: Christophe du Mesnil (OAM) (Vanguardi)
DF: Wladmir Prodanić (Bergsteiger)
MF: Lysistrata Carter (NPH) (Capital)

FW: Jad (Capital)
FW: Dragan Rybić (Finansijskigrade)

Andrejow Werisokić has ben awarded his third keeper of he season award. It's no doubt Vanguardi is the toughest team to attack in the country, with their back end taking up four slots. Ernestisson at just nineteen is really rising as a star in Rekan football. Coming back from a car accident, Wukan Radovlawić was awarded an alternate slot at keeper against foreign and domestic opposition. Janko Yakwoić got his fifth slot on the team as the top defender. Yuri Kewić of DD Porto Nowi made his second appearance in the top XI, scoring more than a few goals along the way this season. The last alternate defender was Wladmir Prodanić, who represents a Bergsteiger team that has been punching above its weight when it comes to talent these last few seasons.

Without Rybki playing a his best, the top midfielder slot was more than open this time around. Four time all XI stalwart David Dix has had an up and down early career, but was stable this season, saying in second. Third place Iwan Mats was a shocker, having a silently strong season for Bergsteiger. Wuk Nikowić was awarded midfielder of the season, and it's been many seasons since he was awarded like this. "Nikowić was like a phoenix" Djoko Weljkowić said on social media. Stojan Heiden was dominating on and off the ball and was by far the strongest threat all season. Even with a suspension, he won top goalscorer and picked up plenty of assists. Jess Kijanskas had less opportunities to finish per 90, but she was more than capable, and was declared, "athlete of the season," by the Hügeltaldom Feminist Party. Constantine Koellner from Nephara was more of a smahsmouth attacker, and the egg was popular amongst the taste testers voters.

Ljuban Iwanić Award (Player of the season)
FW: Stojan Heiden (AK Stanimir)
FW: Jess Kijanskas (BRE) (Vanguardi)
MF: Wuk Nikowić (AK Stanimir)
DF: Janko Yakowić (Capital)
FW: Constantine Koellner (NPH) (Capital)

Stojan Heiden was able to snag two awards from Kijanskas, being both the best striker, but also the player of the season. For Heiden, this is his first time winning th award, and it was team mate Nikowić's first time on the shortlist. Three attackers were in the top five, one more than last season. The increase in world class attackers on the shortlist is at the cost of a defender. Three of the five players on the list are brand new, with only Kijanskas and Yakowić being on last seasons top five.

Best Young Player (21 and under)
DF: Zaur-Luka Igorić (Vanguardi)
GK: Björnólfur Ernestisson (GRF) (AK Stanimir)
MF: Iwan Mats (Bergsteiger)
FW: Arnald Gal (DD Porto Nowi)
FW: Petar Karić (DD Porto Nowi/Ribar PRD)

National Team prospect Zaur-Luka Igorić earned his keep player above all of the other young players this season. Igorić combined defensive and offense duties beautifully game after game along Ogroven Vanguardi's flank. Ernestisson and Karić were fine opposition to Igorić, and perhaps could still win this award. Sadly for Mats and Gal there will be no more opportunities.

Best New Signing
MF: Ryan McCormack (TKT) (VZRH)
FW: Majia Dana (Riverside)
FW: Constantine Koellner (NPH) (Capital)
FW: Alek Panić (Kven)
FW: Axel-Finn Wladowić (VZRH)

Costing nothing but his contract, free agent Ryan McCormack was the best signing of the season. A lack of a championship for Capital cause their expensive signings to slide down the list. Majia Dana was a powerful attacker for Riverside, who seem to have solved a big hole in their attack. Loanee Alek Panić could be someone Kven should look to sign, otherwise he might go back to Ofau. VZRH Matov-Uri's back room should be proud of having two signings on this list, with forward Axel-Finn Wladowić just making the top five.

Best Backup (ten starts or less)
MF: Franziz Reus (Vanguardi)
FW: Nikowan Wladić (Finansijskigrade)
DF: Wilsrë Quelausé (FFD) (Capital)
MF: Janson Atangana (TKT) (Capital)
FW: Nikoa Palwewić (Finansijskigrade)

It's surprising to see new signing Franziz Reus only included here and not in the above category. Reus was a relatively low cost option that contributed to Vanguardi on both sides of the game beautifully. His age may prevent him from being a full time player, but Reus is a strong rotational option for Vanguardi in he future. Nikoa Palwewić and teenager Nikowan Wladić were both great players for Finansijskigrade, but Waldić was by far stronger off the bench. Wilsrë Quelausé, the wingback from Farfadillis was tough to fight against when he came on late. Jason Atangana from Tikariot was a bundle of potential as he shadowed some of Zeta Reka's most legendary midfielders.

Fair Play Award
FK Ovrâd, 0 reds, 8 yellows, 0 yellow/reds, 8 score, 39 games, 0.2051 average
FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia, 1 red, 4 yellow, 0 yellow/reds, 9 score, 30 games, 0.2666 average
Preo Team, 1 red, 7 yellows, 0 yellow/reds, 8 score, 40 games, 0.25 average
Proud Tigers, 1 reds, 6 yellows, 1 yellow/red, 9 score, 34 games, 0.2647 average
Djurowac Athletik, 0 reds, 4 yellows, 0 yellow/reds, 4 score, 22 games, 0.2727 average

All teams in the top three divisions were tracked for their number of red and yellow cards throughout the season. With the exception of three, any of them could win an automatic slot in the 2nd division next season. Of course, should the award winning side qualify on merit for any of the top two tiers, the runner up gets the slot, and so on. For smaller clubs in the FLF, this is a great shot at higher level play, with higher match day income, and any special broadcasting fees.

To win the award, you simple need to average a lower penalty score per game. The score is calculated with three points for a red card, and one point for yellow cards. If a tie arises from the average, the team with the least red card is awarded the tie break. If a tie continues, you should look to have less yellow cards, and then more “yellow-reds,” as that mean your players were handed less normal red cards for vile play. Ovrâd Fruchtbarkiet and their six yellow cards was the best behavior in the league. Univerzitet u Aleiusia's red card stopped them from winning the award with their four yellow cards. Univerzitet will be hoping to enter Division 2 next season, and Ovrâd's performance will decide the school team's fate.

FK Ofau were the class of the league, locking up the league early on, fighting for glory, and a high ranking in next seasons qualifying campaign. Beginn-Davn were Ofau’s closest challengers, but were ineligible for the “Sinišawić-Zoranić Memorial Trophy” weeks before the season’s end. That left the tension of the season to the lower end of the league. After eighteen matches, Porto Nowi Atheltik head coach Zwezdan Iwanić left for second division side FK Ovrâd. The sudden move put Porto Nowi Athletik in an odd spot, though the team weathered, receiving help from the community to pay for the new coach’s small signing bonus. “We live paycheck to paycheck, like the working people we are representing,” club board committee chairman Adam Neškowić said on social media.

With ten slots up for grabs in Rekadom’s regional qualifying system, most teams were able to bear some kind of fruit. However, the bottom two were going to exit, as they have in years gone by. Kovgrade were relegated two years ago, but due to the fair play award, they were promoted from dead last into Division 2. It's all over now though. Other teams were not just relegated by poor results. Financial troubles greatly rocked multiple teams during the season, KWW’s club board president Wladmir Lepinjica-Čebinac, and club owner Filip Wrankowić, were tied up in the court system over a contract lawsuit. Lepinjica-Čebinac’s lawyers alleged, among other things, that details on his club contract were annulled without consent, and that he was ordered to approve downsizing player pay across the board. A potential criminal investigation related to KWW’s financing is in the works according to anonymous reports from regional authorities in Zeta Reka. Automotive Klub were docked ten points after going into bankruptcy. Before that they already lacked some players due to a strike.

Players of the season
GK: Miloš Milanić (Astra AK)
DF: Ilija Ilić (FK Ofau) (Player Of The Season)
DF: Nikola Androwić (Astra AK)
DF: Radomir Krakow (FK Ofau)
DF: Marko Markoheim (Beginn-Davn)

FW: Goran Waldić (FK Ofau)
FW: Dieter Helmutow (Beginn-Davn)
FW: Commendant Wukowić (FK Ofau)
At eighteen, Marko Markoheim is the youngest player on the list and the only player in his first starting season. Markoheim, the prime center back for Davn, dominated the air all year. Nikola Androwić, aged twenty one, hasn’t been on a list like this in his prior two seasons of starting play. Ilija Ilić was older than the defenders below him at twenty six. He’d played at the top level, so attacking as a wingback was no problem at all. The team mates of Ilić cluttered POTS voting lists. Iwan Yurić was the second best midfielder, the 6’4 Goran Waldić was the attacker of the season, him and loanee Commendant Wukowić really took advantage of the best crosses in the division. A trio of players from Beginn-Davn also entered the list, as the club looks to continue improving. The goal keeper of the season as Astra AK’s Miloš Milanić, his first award since he was a fifteen year old youth league superstar.

Spartanac came out on top on Ogroven’s top league. The club has seen some up and downs, but a team of relative unknowns bested expected favorites. Spartanac were touted for relegation early in qualifying, but they soldiered on as an organization to lift a regional title. Ogroven Sportlich finished second in a disappointing send off for former national champion Uzelac Wladowić. Industrieskigrade captain Klem Stofaneese retired in a division he hasn’t seen in years. The one club man took Industrieskigrade to a cup title, but now they’re down in the dumps. In times past, the team who finished in tenth was neither eligible for regional qualifying, nor were they relegated. This season changed the game, with the bottom three all going down. Athletik Zanatlija lost six of their last eight to crash out, while Sts' Katedrala, went from two tenth place finishes down to eleventh. Matov-Uri Jedanaest were pound for pound the worst team in the top three levels of Zeta Reka this season, averaging a point every two games.

Champs Spartanac had just one player in the regional top eleven. Boban Mitrović, twenty seven, was the second highest scorer in the division. Mitrović scored three less goals than the seventeen from Uzelac Wladowić. Wladowić was fed the ball by two classy midfielders, Ashraf Jamal and Iwan Komi. Teenager Maximo Jurgenić and Dragan Ribarić each scored twelve goals. Luka Weinhaus was the best center back to distribute the ball to in this division, the twenty nine year old making a career out of building up plays and breaking down the handiwork of others. Another loan player, Radoman Milkawić, makes his way into a regional all XI. Riverside own his contract, and will be more than happy with the young man’s development in Industriejskigrade. The player of the season was back rank ace Dejan Iwić, who played across the entire backline of Sportlch throughout the season.

FK Stassengrade won their seven matches one nil. Which had them twelve points ahead of all rivals, though Hügeltaldom North uses a schedule that lacks the same symmetry as other leagues. In layman’s term second place Djurowac was a whole game behind. AK Stassenzlem were the opposite, scoring their first goals during their first victory, mis six matches into their campaign. FK Stassengrade also were beaten by regional rivals Ruzhan the same day. The only other loss Stassengrade’s squad faced was against Platin Football Werin due to a last minute goal from defender Eriko Hadnadjew. Stassengrade ended the season four to seven wins beyond the teams who beat them in the points column.

The relegation battle was decided on the final day, Stassenzlem was near the basement all season, but with a game in hand over Pumas and the ultra attacking Bauernclub, they could escape. There was also Produktionsstätte Athletik, who could advance after a second half drop in form. Stassenzlem sadly lost to Ruzhan Stasseengrade after giving up three goals in the second half. Produktionsstätte had lost one nil against Djurowac before, but had a fire in them this time. The attack was wicked, but their goal was called offsides. A second goal was considered valid, but it was in Djurowac’s favor. Platinastigrade’s reserves went down as well. Shifting from second all the way down to last place.

Hügeltaldom North also proved to be dramatic for non football reasons. Mid table team Kernwuchs are subject to advertiser boycotts after their club leadership sided against anti-racism activists and with FK Banfigrade during the league meeting. Cross ethnic and politically motivated violence also flared up at the match between Pumas Athletik and Ruzhan Stassengrade. Reports are inconstant, Ruzhan fans allege violence began after, and was in retaliation for political protests against Kernwuchs, and an “excuse to attack germanic and left leaning persons” according to the words of Ruzhan’s largest supporters group. Pumas Athletik club president, Jan Korbeci, denied such accusations, stating that the fans were, "innocent of all charges by man and God."

Fullback and dribble specialist Eriko Hadnadjew was the youngest all IX player in the country on the list with just sixteen years lived. The young man scored six goals, four of which were game winners. Wladimirok Slijepčewić at thirty four was a major outlier, the Stassengrade captain perhaps ending his career on a high. Al Nenadić was bought for 90k, and was Stassengrade’s top investment for boosting the club’s attack. Stassengrade’s domination was made clear by seven of the eleven slots belonging to their players.

Due to the absence of Traktor Klub, who got a special slot in the second division of the Federal League, there was less fixtures than normal in this league. In a slightly smaller division, eleven teams fought it out. Under regional rules, TPWO could not be promoted as they finished in the bottom two of qualifying. Even so, the small town team were in fourth place at the halfway mark, equal on points with Zrno and Hüelhunde, just two points behind the par of Ovrâd Dragons, and Klub 20. Hüelhunde’s exemplary performance saw them go 6-3-1, while Klub 20 settled at 5-3-2. The sole loss in Hüelhunde’s second half was against Klub 20. With the game’s sole scorer, Timo Ratmirić, predicting “supreme victory” in the league. Unfortunately for them, they lost their head coach to Železnički FK in Glavni. Hüelhunde had to adjust as well, losing player Jak Karlmann forever from a career ending back injury. Hans Dirkić, at just nineteen, was forced to start at left back.

In the relegation battle, Seefahrer FK had a twelve match winless streak, collecting a paltry three points in the second half of the season. They were well behind Izworwac, who were in last at the half. Bauernhaus Okrug were level with Izworwac on points, but had a better differential after ten games. While Izworwac continued to sit near the bottom, Bauernhaus pulled through. Backup forward Hans Halein went on a strong run, scoring five goals in seven games. FKP Ribar looked like they could be thrown out of the federal system, but finished one point safe, one point less of a safety net than last season. Other teams were silent this season, doing little, but doing it well enough to keep their title pipe dreams alive.

Players of the season
GK: Iwan Androwić (Hüelhunde FK)
DF: Wuk Draganić (Klub 20)
DF: Nenad Jakšić (Klub 20)
DF: Rekadom Salwkowić (Hüelhunde FK)
DF: Djura Miletawić (TPWO)
MF: Sigmund Gottfried (Ovrâd Dragons) (POTS)
MF: Božidar Staniwić (Hüelhunde FK)
MF: Frank Bromberger (TPWO)
FW: Yari Hesse (Hüelhunde FK)
FW: Janko Badenowić (Ovrâd Dragons)
FW: Ljuban Landau (Hüelhunde FK)
The divisional champs got themselves five slots in the team, one in every position. Androwić was the best keeper in the country, a top flight quality foot and some amazing sweeps made that choice doubtless. Yari Hesse was also the top forward, scoring ten goals, tied for top scorer with teammate Ljuban Landau, and Bauernhaus’ Hans Halein. Halein impressively scored four goals against Hüelhunde, one of the league’s two hat tricks of the season. The more defensive end was dominated by Klub 20’s Draganić and Jakšić, two fiery defenders, with Jakšić playing both full back and half back. Salwkowić was the sole pure wing back to place in the regional top XI, scoring three goals, and assisting seven. Midfielders Božidar Staniwić and defending top midfielder holder Sigmund Gottfried were favorites for player of the season. Both studs provided powerful box to box quality across their club’s respective campaigns. Ultimately, Gottfried won his second player of the season award in three seasons. The younger Gottfried was more essential to his team’s success, managing to hold together a squad beset by injuries.

Fire Rescue jockeyed for the lead early, and after they beat Kosmopolitisch-Kosmopolitskog on day nine, the lead was in their hands. Kosmopolitisch had been unbeaten up to that point, winning their first four matches, and giving up their first goal on match six against Finansijskigrade’s reserves. Rescue slowly pulled away from the pack. Fire Rescue were up by three at the tenth match over W.5 Station, and then up by seven against the same club halfway through the season. With ten matches left, the lead had gone up by a point. DD Aleiusia hd pulled into second, while W.5 Station’s poor run saw them in sixth. Of course, finishing above eighth is the main goal, with fourteen of the sixteen team eligible to play in regional qualifying. Politehnika was one point ahead of ninth and tenth place, with only a single draw to their name after fifteen matches. Alter Platz, DD Aleiusia, Kosmopolitisch, Korvann Cannons, Horbatski, W.5 Station, Fire Rescue. Five games later, Alter Platz were down in thirteenth, losing three games. Regal were newcomers to the top half of the league. Capital’ reserves were near the top half too, but they can’t be promoted.

Relegation battles were underway early as well. The aforementioned DD Aleiusia were actually in last place after five matches with a single point. They responded to the danger by winning over 2nd place W.5 Station, near bottom feeders 246m, the political campaign fundraiser Pobeda Zeta Reka, last place Obrazovanje (O.R.G.) and then drew former cup semi finalists Korvann Cannons. The run had fourteen goals score, three given up. After the tenth match, Finansijskigrade’s reserves shot themselves out of fourteenth, and Regal was in their place. What did Regal do? They went from fourteenth to sixth in five games with five victories. Would the next team in fourteenth escape the drop? For Železnički FK, the answer was a resounding… maybe. They sat two points away from being one and done at the third level. Fellow promoted side, the reserves from Finansijskigrade, and poor FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia were either tied or a point down. Fire Rescue, W.5 Station and DD Aleiusia couldn’t finish in last after twenty matches, however only the first was mathematically safe from relegation, the others were fifteen and fourteen points ahead.

With three matches left the three narratives of the season came to a head. Fire Rescue were holding a four point lead over DD Aleiusia, W.5 Station were down 18 points in 6th, and three away from being out of next season’s federal league qualifying. Rescue, DD Aleiusia, Cannons, Regal, Politehnika, W.5, Capital 2, Kosmopolitisch, and Horbatski were in the top nine, Capital 2 unable to be promoted. Only Horbatski could be relegated. Pobeda, Finansijskigrade 2, Alter Platz, great escapees Železnički, O.R.G, 246m, and Univerzitet were within eight points of each other, with Horbatski nine points ahead of Železnički and O.R.G. In effect, everyone but the bottom two could be in Division 1 next season. The title race was plain. Fire Rescue and DD Aleiusia kept pace with each other, and so Rescue were crowned champions. The top nine were situated, and Capital 2 was in the group. Thus the seeds for regional qualifying were set in stone.

The main story of the final day was the epic relegation battle. In 13th 246m was, who got to this high rank after their keeper recorded a clean sheet at home against Alter Platz. Platz were now in 14th behind Univerzitet on differential. Železnički, and O.R.G. lost to solid teams, and were two points from safety. After the penultimate match, Alter Platz and 246m were one or zero points safe, Alter Platz drawing a game at the best time to jump ahead two places. O.R.G drew Finansijskigrade 2 to avenge a 1-4 away loss. With Železnički, Univerzitet, and 246m playing teams in the top eight, O.R.G and Alter Platz’s rematch would be decisive. O.R.G used their tricks from the away win they had on Alter Platz, but they could only score once this time around. Platz moved in for a free kick after ninety six minutes of play, and when midfielder Tomić fired the ball the fans erupted. The ball was deflected off a center back’s, well, back. That was the finale of a lifetime for Alter Platz, who have never done this good. Univerzitet drew against Regal, and Železnički lost to Horbatski Aleiusia Athletik. The Croats scored once per half to put Železnički at the bottom of the league. FK 246m had one shot, they too were at home against W.5 Station, and only needed a draw. It took thirteen minutes to fall behind. Miodrag Iwanić, the backup striker, was without a defender, he moved into position like a dart, winger Konstantin Aleksiwić crossing the ball. This was the final play, and Miodrag jumped just short of the ball.

Players of the season
GK: Barto Lukić (FK 246m)
DF: Josef Jowanowić (Politehnika) (POTS)
DF: Matej Nedeljković (FK Finansijskigrade 2)
DF: Rade Iwanić (DD Aleiusia)
DF: Mart Krakowić (W.5 Station FK)
MF: Sawa Slawoljubić (Fire Rescue)
MF: Slawomir Lukawić (DD Aleiusia)
MF: Kai Rauland (DD Aleiusia)
FW: Fenstermacher “Fen” Scwartzhammer (Aleiusia Capital 2)
FW: Marko Titor (Fire Rescue)
FW: Yosef Alekić (FK Finansijskigrade 2)
Former national team prospect Josef Jowanowić, who one played abroad, was the Player Of The Season, his first such award in his career. The twenty three year old center back is perhaps starting a career renaissance. DD Aleiusia won three slots, a team back on the rise after years in the wilderness. Fire Rescue won a title and two player awards and box to box terror Sawa Slawoljubić was the runner up for player of the year. Another top contender was the flashy golden boot winner Fenstermacher “Fen” Scwartzhammer. At twenty one, Scwartzhammer is a long term option for capital’s senior attack with short term potential. Each of DD Aleiusia’s three top players were twenty five of younger. Slawomir Lukawić is reported to have been a strong contender for the player of the season award. At this level, he scored twenty one goals in twenty three appearances, with two hat tricks. The cavaliering Matej Nedeljković and Yosef Alekić seemed to carry Finansijskigrade 2 in any and all victories. Mart Krakowić was injured for a time, and his recovery impressed many. Barto Lukić has the dubious honor of being relegated as goalkeeper of the season, he’s on loan, so his bosses at Striped Kits will be happy.

Federal Football League of Zeta Reka & Hügeltaldom Federativna Liga Football Zeta Reka i Hügeltaldom
Season 78, League Meeting
At the League Meeting, a few major points of note were brought up. Unlike last year, the pageantry and drama were limited. Important business was still decided on by both the Executive Committee, and league members at large. FLF Spokesperson Lotti Dumler spoke with us a day after the meeting, “Productivity was high,” she said, “We’re a growing league in terms on support and prestige. The developments from this meeting will allow to rise further.”

League Restructuring
Last season, progress was made in reforming Zeta Reka’s unique football set up. With rumors of a breakaway league, known as the “Grand League” circulating every year, all eyes were on league reform at the start of the conference. The meeting this year was to either be the final nail in that proposal coffin, or the paradigm shift in its birth. The main reform points of consideration were rewarding automatic qualifying spots to teams with multiple successful seasons, and negotiations with the Football Association in regards to advertising fees for internet broadcasts. “We, with some more than others, had delight from the developments today.” An increase in revenue gave room for a 3.5% share to come into the combined possession of teams who play in Division 1.

The aforementioned league reforms were a much larger issues. Modifications to regional qualifying metrics have only been undertaken a few times over the last few decades. The most recent change was a the adoption of a sixteen team league instead of twelve. The proposal from last year was not a simple extension however. Via an 85-15 split, the meeting at-large voted for automatic qualification to FLF Division 1 in two years time. Every team who participates in FLF Division 1 over a three season period will receive a score based on their final position. The top eight teams in those standings will be pre selected for the top flight in the season after. The other eight slots will be fought for by the local leagues. Ultimately, a year long campaign by various owners and club presidents has reached climax. Supporters of the change cite the grown financial numbers for sports lacking the FLF’s system, such as basketball. A notable “no” vote came from Grand League proponent and Platinastigrade Director of Operations Stado Jakowić. Jakowić, appealed to fellow Grand League proponents to “hold the line” but most major club representative were more than receptive to their newfound qualifying safety net. Most opposing votes came from Glavni, as they are unable to collect a third slot thanks to the abolishment of the National Playoffs.

“Abhorrent is best word to describe our predicament.” Porto Nowi Athletik club co-president Petar Janić told delegates, “that we are to sell out our culture to prevent the establishment of an elitist league of clubs above our Football Association.” Many votes for a break in tradition appeared to be reluctant among smaller sides. The opposition has a cultural background. Rekan cultural scholar Aleksandar Martić explained to us at the Federal Council of Sport that, “In times of old, regional competitions in Zeta Reka helped promote military preparedness under feudalism, as many medieval games did across the world.” Martić, also a professor at the AEF (Antropologija u Etnografija Fakultet) at the University of Aleiusia, elaborated further, “Rekan society, and the people in Hügeltaldom treat traditions with respect when they are taught them. For many at this meeting, voting for this change was like desecrating the graves of ancestors stretching back a thousand years or more.” When asked if profit was a motive, Martić gave us a chuckle. “For the larger teams, of course.”

Youth League
After years of delay, there was another delay in bringing the youth system of Zeta Reka into compliance with IFCF rules. The fact that AK Stanimir could qualify for a Rising Star Cup slot due to their potential run in the Champion’s League Qualifying rounds made the issue topical again. In our meeting with Ms. Dumler, she spoke on the youth system’s challenges “The longterm goal remains establishing a league compliant with IFCF Rising Stars Cup entry rules. An impasse remains with those who want to create a new league and some who want to age down the preexisting Juniors League.” The Executive Committee tabled the motion for another year, but stated it would research the DD-Soleburg Plan, proposed by the representative of DD Aleiusia and AK Soleburg as a combination of two preexisting reform plans. The DD-Soleburg Plan stipulates the creation of an U-19 League consisting of younger players from the FLF Juniors (U-21) League, which would continue as a localized event. The new U-19 League would be created by the eighty first FLF Season. Proponents of the plan say that the small size of the U-21 league now allowed for it to become regionalized. “Many teams incorporate youth players into reserve sides,” Dumler said, “or onto their own benches.” Critics are skeptical. “A larger youth league that can bring international acclaim to youth Rekan talents? Impossible” Internet sport analyst Mato Djowić said on his program. More developments will come.

Other News
After last years’ racial and ethnic tensions, this meeting was one lacking in drama. The issues of prejudice in Rekan sports were addressed by the Executive and Financial Committees, which are the same body, sans two extra members on the Financial Committee. Both bodies voted unanimously to adopt a new anti-racism program into the league. The decision was not without opposition. The meeting at-large can veto any decision made by the Committee, but the vote was split down the middle, but that was less than the sixty percent required. Zrno Club president Wuk Kortman, who’s predecessor was a major critic of “political correctness” last year and Kortman was no different, blaming “political correctness” and citing “attacks” against supporters Hügeltal club Kernwuchs (which were not ruled as such by law enforcement) to prove the measure was an attack on Rekan culture A representative for the players union stated that “unacceptable playing barriers could not be tolerated” refering to allegations barriers making that has lobbies against FK Banfigrade. Reviews were positive for the use of the Kuark-D720 ball from Čast to continue over the next few seasons. “We reported a higher player satisfaction with the Kurak-D720 than the prior two match balls from Čast,” a statement from the Players Association read. A new League Logo Committee was created.

For defending champs AK Stanimir, the qualifying season was a bit tense, Ottowić county, who first qualified for the top division by defeating Stanimir, looked to perhaps surpass the defending champions. Their score had to be settled here and now. Ottowić actually took the first match, at home, with a single goal. The sharp attack of Stanimir was not to be halted another time, and Stanimir pulled away with two goals in the first half to Ottowić’s none from both halves. Stanimir’s victory was jumbled in with two match against Xanneria’s Hawthorne Kickers in IFCF qualification.

Handler Svile FK and FK Ofau entered a drag race in Group B. Both sides drew each other twice, but the difference maker was on the third match day when Handler Svile couldn’t score versus Zebra Pastirblata. The draw put them one point behind Ofau, and the silk traders were relegated. Ofau’s Goran Waldić sat second on the scoring charts in the region with six goals in four matches, his ten minute hat trick against FK Woz put Waldić at the top of the sports section in Rekadom’s largest newspaper.

Porto Nowi OR and DD Porto Nowi were not challenged in the standings, each winning by over a single win, OR up by two. For OR, the campaigng brings newfound confidence. However, there’s some shakiness at DD’s offices, but that’ll be addressed shortly. Porto Nowi OR’s smooth sailing saw them hit the back of the opposition net two or three times in the fist four matches. Once the team was well ahead, they pulled back, scoring once in two games, and suffering their only loss. “No need to win every match” head coach Gabrijel Dimitrijewić told reporters after losing to Beginn-Davn. Mockery was placed at the feet of Dimitrijewić on social media for his “cowardice.”

A tactical shift at DD Porto Nowi saw four players fighting to start as forwards. For Arnald Gal, such a role was obvious after he scored once in each of his four appearances, and got a hat trick playing Orao Krila Athletik. Valdi Di scored once, not enough to replace a younger Jakow Krstowić. Perhaps playing another match could’ve made a difference for Valdi Di or Walt Courtenay. DD’s final opponent forfeited two matches because they went out of business. Poor Orao Krila were wound up by their owners, airplane manufactures, who are facing hard times in the global market.

Kven and Hüelhunde opened the season in Hügeltaldom’s south with an action packed draw where Kven’s Dmitar Draganić scoring twice late. The draw plus Kven’s failure to beat a Ovrâd but Kven in a poor spot. Ovrâd were on four points, Kven two, and even Kven’s final opponents could finish in the top two. Žitarice’s scored first, but the neutralization of fullback Zrno Djordjewić, Žitarice’s best weapon, allowed Kven to pull ahead in the second half with three goals. Even so, it took three goals from Hüelhunde’s Tijak Iwoić to keep FK Ovrâd down. Iwoić was a signing from Kven, and his first goals for his new team helped both of his fanbases.

In group B, Ribar locked a qualifying slot by going unbeaten. Their four players who scored against Fruchtbarkiet stopped that club’s momentum, and they could only beat the winless Traktor Klub. Beestagrade slid slowly into the final slot, scoring just three goals, but solidly defending the whole way. A lack of a clinical finisher was a flaw. Beestagrade had the second highest expected goals per 90 in the opening rounds, behind Kven. Defending cup champions Ribar over performed, ranking fifth in the XG/90 tally.

After a rocky start, Kven normalized when they won three in a row to get back into Division 1 for another season. The last slot of the top flight was not locked in until ninety five minutes into the group’s last dance. Ribar PRD were in second with six points. Ribar’s final opposition Hüelhunde, plus Kven’s final opponents Beestagrade, had five. Kven demolished Beestgarade with three goals in the second half. Ribar and Hüelhunde dug in. Hüelhunde’s 4-3-3 tends to bully around 4-4-2 clubs, but Ribar’s diamond shape put more men in the middle of the field. Even so, there was a stalemate. Ribar’s head coach, Jurgen Djowić, took captain Ogroven Matow out of the game late, and with Marko Darijowić giving the midfield greater centralization, Maximillian Domonwinjkski moved forward. The pseudo 4-3-3 beat Hüelhunde at their own game, Domonwinjkski scoring off of defender Saul Bah’s shin.

With the bottom two teams forced to play a year’s minimum in the local leagues, Fruchtbarkiet were utterly embarrassed, collecting their single point after elimination. Regional rivals FK Ovrâd were much stronger, winning four of six. Žitarice striker Iwan Bartsch was the top scorer in the group, the teenager’s brace hosting Traktor Klub, plus four other goals, saved Žitarice from two relegations in a season. For poor old Tractor Klub, this was a long time coming. They haven’t played in the top flight finishing fifteenth in season 73, an era that was much quieter for their region than the present day. It’s been over fifteen years since the club has been this low on the hierarchy.

With a lot of flare, Capital cruised past the opposition again in regional qualifying, drawing a single game, and winning the other five. New rules to the qualifying system were proposed by the local football federation and accepted by the federal executive committee. The format change saw the teams seeded into four pots. The 16th seeds, Politehnika, almost took advantage of not being forced to duel with Capital, losing on away goals against Imperialismus. Two teams from the third pot, Fire Rescue and DD Aleiusia, got a spot in the second division this season by winning in round one. DD Aleiusia dropped the ball on penalty shot five, but two misses in a row from Striped Kits sent the club down a division. The Cannons from Korvann faced unfortunate opposition from the Proud Tigers, and gave up four goals to start the season.

In the second round, both low seeded teams lost. However two first division sides also died on the vine. Riverside’s loss in the second round was another father in the caps of Spartan-Mraw, who are improving as a team. Finansijskigrade and Proud Tigers had a gunslinging match, with Tigers two goal consistency delivering Proud Tigers their first shot in years to enter the top flight. With the final four set, Capital advanced back into the top division, while Imperialismus drew two matches to advance into Division 1 to finish a multi year project. In the play-in Spartan-Mraw lost twice, and Tigers entered the playoffs with a goal and an assist coming from their newest forward, Max-Otto Bergmann.

With four slots up for grabs, and five teams looking for a promotion, the playoffs were cutthroat. Preo Teams and Ofau got themselves quickly into the top flight this season. Stassengrade’s two wins were vital to their success, as they were at the expense the lower ranked sides. Both Tigers and Hüelhunde were even on points coming into the final day of the playoffs, and Hüelhunde were in a do-or-die match. Hüelhunde were behind when Tiger’s Matej Jorgsen scored just a half hour in. In the second half, a long range shot from Hüelhunde’s Iwan Specht deflected off the keepers feet. Sadly for the agriculture funded side, Proud Tigers couldn’t be broken a second time.

After finishing six points away from Challenger’s Cup Qualifying, Imperialismus were shockingly unable to re-qualify for the top flight. Imperialismus was forced to soldier on two straight years in the second division. Each season Imperialismus qualified for the Liga B Champions Trophy. Even with international duties, management continued to prioritize domestic fixtures. The club finally broke through Glavni’s glass ceiling again this season. A highly intense 4-4-2 offense will look to challenge the best and brightest in the country. With the standards being raised year after year Imperialismus tinkered with their lineup. Only four players from the 75th season remain starers, and only one has turned thirty. Another one of those players, Wukdrag Nikowić was converted to fullback and ever played for the national team in that capacity. Four players have been welcomed into the starting roster this season, and each have done well. With a high amount of confidence, and some talented players, the former Division 2 champions from the capital city are looking for success faster than you’d expect.

Coming back to the top division, AK Stanimir’s president Mijat Daliborić commissioned head coach Moon Tae-Hong to win another trophy. However, this could be Stanimir’s toughest season yet, as they play in both defend their title, and strive for excellence in the IFCF Challengers Cup. Captain Klaudo Radkov has aged out of starting, but will be a good backup and a strong locker room leader. Center forward Marko Petarić has been moved into a tarting role after Stevan Vlahović was sold to Aleiusia Capital on deadline day. Two signings in midfield give the team a new attack down the center. Markus Rolfes from Aleiusia Capital, and Stanimir Rekawić who had a spell in Audioslavia, and is looking to return in the future. Outside of changes on the bench, the rest of the defending champions lineup is unchanged. Given their Quebecois coach for a few years, one would be tempted to rest on their laurels. However, reports from the locker room indicate this campaign is equally serious compared to title challenges past.

After winning the double, Capital came up short on both ends, and had a sad IFCF campaign. Janko Perlog was criticized by the sporting media heavily, but continues to lead this band of men. “I’ve won two titles in the last five seasons, I’ll win some for the capital” he boldly predicted on social media during a tense exchange with sportswriter Djoko Weljkowić. Stevan Vlahović has been brought in to play as a right forward in the attacking trident alongside Jad and the egg man Constantine Koellner. “This is a scary trio,” Wladmir Janko Schumacher told the press after the Proud Tigers side he coaches lost to Capital in regional qualifying, Schumacher continued, saying that, “Everyone is looking to see what they can do in a prolonged season.” A bad ankle injury to club suppertstar David Dix puts Janson Atangana from Tikariot into the first eleven. Many of the old stars remain in their places, and Capital fans hope they are all bright enough for more outstanding victories.

Still sponsored by Re-Pair Korp, your number one business for handymen and tech repair, Bergsteiger are trying to fix up holes in heir side. Talented plays have come through the organization, but a lack of overall quality steers them away. The future however is bright for Bergsteiger according to it’s faithful followers. Iwan Mats, Wladmir Prodanić, and Anubis Zlatkowić are homegrown talents who looking to raise the bar this season. “The green and white flags hanging over the stadium feel fresher this year,” longtime player Stanimir Djordjewić told supporters on a local radio program, “we have genuine chance to build up something here, and I’m happy to see it come in our time.” One tender point for the club is their defense. Bergsteiger gave up more than two goals per game last season, one of nine Division 1 lineups to do so in the last three seasons. Anubis, that man mentioned before, could be an ace up coach Josef Aleksanderić’s sleeve. The attack should be nice, but starter Niko Tomiwić is out for the opening matches due to a string of head injuries sustained in qualifying.

Changes could be coming to the ascetic of DD Porto Nowi, their contracts for the both their stadium lease and their sponsorship with Zeta Reka Bank run out after this season. A strong campaign anywhere would help a team who’s external reputation is nothing to their internal fame. “What’s Going Wrong At DD Porto Nowi?” was one of the most popular internet videos produced Zeta Reka during the off season. Amateur sports analyst Milo Herrschaften lamented that his boyhood club had, “gone from eight titles in eleven seasons, to a single cup title in four seasons. Worse yet, their streak advancing to the cup final ended as well a few years ago.” Even with a slip in form, people are taking Porto Nowi’s chances seriously. Helmutow Reich, on of the brightest minds to play against DD Porto Nowi, came into the club as head coach, and went to work signing foreign talent. His sign get was Tequilo’s Mateo Tafalla, brought in to lead the team, and given the name “Midfield Mercenary” by the press. Another major change is readopting the club’s classical 3-5-2 formation. Reich’s experience as a coach and player lended itself to the shift. Arnald Gal and Jakow Krstowić remain starters, while Walt Courtenay and Valdi Di are backup strikers.

Four the las four seasons, Ofau have attempted the “Towers of Doom” strategy to win matches. They’ve looked at two tall center forwards bring them victory. With two seasons in the top flight, the team suffered a humiliating climb down to tier three. While Ofau were utterly dominant against local rivals, the embarrassing state of affairs prompted the club to bench veteran big man Wuk Böhmer. Before the start of the season, smaller forwards Manfredak Lange and Hans Palve have been slotted in with former “Towers of Doom” star Goran Waldić. The new trident has a lower mean height than before (181cm to 196cm), but will be plenty “mean” when called to arms. One odd purchase was the services of Imilo Dakić, taken for free from Žitarice Union. “I may be old, but I’m still a bull.” Dakić said at his formal welcoming ceremony where he was given a commemorative plaque with a steer’s head on it. Also, reports of the team's sponsorship being in limbo are unconfirmed. Rumors or not, they do not have any brands printed on their chest this season.

After a rocky set of years, Stassngrade’s top football side has returned to the top flight. Coming off a dominant performance in Hügeltaldom’s top northern league, Stassngrade leapt past Division 2 by advancing through the national playoffs. Stassengrade’s transfer window activity was mute. Now, they’re coming against the best in the country with a young and raw roster. Should they be a threat to other tams this season, they’ll need Alek Nenadić and Banfi Teodorić to command a strong offense, while Dani Danijelić, Ottoh Milošić, and Luther Assing hold back attacks.

Kven will want to make the top four this season, according to their contract with the Sport and Culture ministry, they must play in some IFCF sanctioned international match two out of every three seasons. The requirements stem from the team’s sponsorship being used to promote tourism into the country. The tourism economy is Kven’s economy, with local and outside investment into it’s small football club contributing to two titles. Players from those awesome seasons are still here, but slowly the club has begun to change, and perhaps the time will come when a new era need to begin at the Putovanje Korp Arena. Qualifying was a major scare for Kven, but they soldiered on, looking for another run.

Vanguardi are the first club to have two foreign sponsors on their wears, with Knox’s adverts on the sleeves, and Lager Nyan’s logo bold printed across the guts of the team’s players. They money will be good, since attendance will be lower this season. The Vanguardi i Federativna Teret Kompanija Stadion is being upgraded, and going under a name change. This has moved Vanguardi to the Opštinski Stadion u Ogroven while 8,000 seats are added to their renovated home grounds. In more sport relevant news, Vanguardi maintains the services of Jess Kijanskas, the Brenecian attacker who’s come so close to winning the golden boot twice that it honestly must hurt. Her partners Josip Jorowić and Jaxon Amador are also back. Due to off the field discipline issues, and a torn Achilles tendon, team captain Rankoslaw Antonijewić has given up the arm band and Jan Thimig is thus the new standard bearer. Thimig, along with Werisokić, Igorić, Millić, and Jorowić are some of the players who could also be involved in Zeta Reka’s campaign for the 87th World Cup. New signing Bwahi Herron is coming fresh from Chromatika’s college system, and fans are looking for instant results as he replaces Miloš Iwanić.

There has been some shifts all around at Platinastigrade. Both the head coach and director of operations have gone. The later, Stado Jakowić, running off club and national legend Helmutow Reich shortly after the end of last season. During the qualifying campaign, internal changes saw a new lawman at the helm. The new Director of Operations was Djordje Irnes who came from the technology development department of the mining corporation (Rudarstvo Korporacija). and made commitments to favor, “sport science… and the promotion of merit…” Irnes was removed as Director of Operations two days after the end of qualifying in Hügeltaldom North. His replacement was old veteran of the game, a former player, coach, and team owner, Wilko Waltz. Waltz was a champion as player and coach, and was last seen as an executive in Wharsager Der Berg before its sale to foreign owners. Waltz has reportedly cut down the budget in almost every area, including removing bonuses Irnes implemented. The formation has also shifted to a 4-4-2 diamond away from a 4-5-1 in qualifying, this was due to the hiring of the mustachioed Mikhail Rhode as coach. Irnes last action in charge was to place in a bid for a man who could be the team’s ace in the sleeve, Bobby East.

Porto Nowi OR are the third most popular team in the city of Porto Nowi. Their fanbase had been on the decline before their appearance last season in Division 1, and the campaign from season seventy five. With striker Albert Ewald out for a large share of last season, the offense should improve this time around. Haarland Blagojewić played as both a forward and attacking midfielder last season, but will be a tad deeper this time around. Xannerian Bryan Pierce was brought in as the new keeper. Pierce’s fans in Zeta Reka talked up a big game against his former club Finansijskigrade and one advocate on TV bold predicted, “supreme victory.”

A pet project for future buisnesss heir Reko Preobrazhensky, the Preo Team was bought a few years ago and quickly rose into the second tier. A bit of extra work from the front office has given the Preo Team it’s second appearance in the top flight. Reko has stated that his goal is to make the, "Preo District" a community of the future, but critics in the federal government say the project could all be some kind of tax write off. No matter what people think, the Preo Team needs to be looked at. On the field veterans and youth mix together under the leadership of the league’s youngest captain, Marko Deretić. While Elliot Kewen was a good, if old, signing from Hillstreet in Brenecia, we wonder if they disliked bing upstaged by the signing of U-18 NT starter Osman Arsenowć.

Proud Tigers got their start as a multi sport club forged from the ashes of impoverished post socialist organization. The team was glossy, shiny, and considered totally fake. The capital city’s football was different back then, and Proud Tigers got into the top division three times from seasons sixty two to sixty eight. Not bad a for football department formed in season 59. Basketball is a bigger deal for the team, and their shiny new sponsorship procured from the Federal Basketball League shows this connection off well. Tiger’s return after around a decade of downtime see them assisted by Max-Otto Bergmann. The national team forward’s club was shockingly beat by the Tigers in regional qualifying. Bergmann wanted to play at the highest level, and over three games for the Tigers scored a single goal. It was enough to help them advance to the national playoffs, where the Tigers just scraped past Hüelhunde.

Ribar found the winning mojo in the cup last season, winning their cinderella story run to the cup. With the looming retirement of longtime captain Ogroven Matow, Ribar are looking to go out on a high note. Aleiusia Capital legend Stanko Yakowić joined Ribar for 1.5m on deadline day. The team does have players under thirty. Midfielder Adham Al-Mutairi is one of the most important pivots right now in the Rekan game. Al-Mutairi’s usage in a diamond formation is aggressive by the standards of a “defensive” midfielder. He’ll look forward, but also sideways to a now youthful wingback duo. As for the front line, everyone is aiming to assist, Petar Karić and Josip Jowanowić will be backed up by Cup final starter Iwan Haller and the Newlandian Otto Marsden. This is a professional side, and any unprepared managers will pay for their laziness.

While Wahrsager Der Berg got in a few licks of the top flight. A lack of fiscal skills mixed with all sorts of trouble. The combination was now too much to bear for Wahrsager’s owners, and they finally sold their club and it’s assets to foreign investors. From the ashes of the fortune teller of the mountain comes a divination, PREMIER. Sanford Der Berg PREMIER FK’s new football head David A. Sanford sits above Qusmi'y head coach Vralx-Ucyxi Lec in the hierarchy. “Oh, we’re very excited.” Sanford told members of the press during the unveiling of the club’s new wears. Columnist Djoko Weljkowić was a firm supporter of the regime change. Weljkowić wrote that, “Sanford did often delegated technicalities to assistant director Rachel Johnson. Regardless of the executive’s basic responses, Mr. Sanford definitely is someone who can sell one on a new venture.” A sharp 3-4-3 formation won both of it’s two regional qualifying matches, and a preseason friendly by a pair of goals against local club Djurowac Athletik. Three foreigners were added to the club’s starting lineup, and Niko Sllawik was signed from the defending champion’s bench. An U-18 World Cup benchwarmer named Marko Opština also came along for the ride, scoring in his only regional qualifying appearance.

With another trophy less season come and gone, the club board has put Riki Schmelling in a do or die position. Some kind of trophy needs to come, or he won’t make it through the season. A heartbreaking Challenger’s Cup qualifying loss to Chromatika’s Urrheddiao on penalties mixed with a close shave in regional qualifying, and that puts everything in the VZRH revival project on thin ice. The only major change to lineup from last year was the swapping of Squornshelan veteran Zosimo Halas for homegrown player Petar Banfi. The backline is thirty two and a third years old on average, and keeper Wukan Radovlawić is thirty three. Age aside, all of them are still good, maybe they’re wine. The back office hopes so, they have to renew their sportswear agreement with Čast after this season.

VZRH lead the returning Preo Team by one point. Both sides have had good starts in many seasons. VZRH’s top spot was weakened by a stunning loss to Porto Nowi OR. Goals from Commendant Wukowić and Niki Sommer came within six minutes, and VZRH’s best challenge was invalidated by an offside call. Vanguardi led the league for a week after winning 7-2 away and not losing their second match. Their lead went away, but with ten points collected the board is happy for now. Keeper Andrejow Werisokić isn’t pleased with his arm injury however. Capital have the lowest scoring offense at the top half of the table. A game winner versus Ribar and an equalizer against Stanimir from Lysistrata Carter has kept her team in the top four, as has the unbreakable defense. “We’re probably the best defense right now” Janko Yakowić said after shutting down Jess Kijanskas for ninety minutes.

Despite a very friendly opening match, and some insane attacking performances, AK Stanimir are in fifth. That 8-6 win against Kven knocked Kven out of the top four, with Heiden’s second half hat trick of the season delivering a victory. Kven are just point behind the pack the hunt, as are Porto Nowi OR, Imperialismus, and the aforementioned Stanimir. At the back of the pack is Proud Tigers, who lost their head coach after just four games via resignation after they lost to a group of VZRH youth prospects and just four first choice players. Even the goalless Stassengrade have more points, drawing twice. At least cup champs Ribar and Sanford Der Berg PREMIER have gotten three points in a night. For PREMIER, they’ve face ultra cautious sides every game, “nobody wants to play us it seems,” fresh signing Niko Sllawik told reporters after drawing against Vanguardi. Two more fanbases unhappy at their prospects are the supporters of Platinasitgrade and DD Porto Nowi. The league is young, and any team can still win, even the Tigers, or Stassengrade.

An entire write up was commissioned for the record breaking game between Proud Tigers and the visiting Aleiusia Capital in “The Tiger’s Den.” A small but dedicated group of Capital supporters witnessed an almost murderous matchup. On the green pitch, Red and yellow mixed with orange, while white and black were opposed. Opposition for Capital wasn’t plentiful. “Pitty he wasn’t playing,” TV-4’s analyst said in reference to Capital forward Constantine Koellner, “who knows how bad the Tigers’ night would’ve been in that case.” Yes, the game was the most lopsided match Zeta Reka’s top flight has ever seen, and the first to have a double digit margin. Correct, Proud Tiger’s interim coach was sacked. Nope, Lysistrata Carter did not punch a janitor after the match. The female who punched an arena staff member was the inebriated wife of Steffanow Kostessen.

At the eleventh minute, the Tigers goal man Wasil Tomiwić, saved a screaming shot from Jad, but his deflection darted to the foot of Lysistrata Carter. Just eight minutes later Capital got on the board again thanks to a quick cross from forward Stevan Vlahović to Fenstermacher Schwartzhammer. Schwartzhammer, or simply “Fen” normally does not start. The youngster scored twice in the first half. In-between those goals was one from the advanced in years Luka Lukić. Capital’s captain would be subbed out after halftime for Wladmir Adamić. Tigers got two shots on goal the whole match, but both Bergmann and Augustin found zero dividends.

Feeling confident after an easy forty five minutes and change, coach Perlog moved his men into a more attacking 4-3-3, Adamić linking with Carter. The duo played off each other, and gave Carter her second goal five minutes into the second half. Things got worse for Tigers. Adam Markić roughly tripped up Vlahović after fifty six minutes of play. Tigers were a man and six goals down after Jad completed a penalty. Vlahović’s replacement, Stefan Biltmans, would score shortly thereafter. Seven goals down, Tiger’s Alek Heinkie bungled distribution of the ball, scoring on his own club. The wings hand’t seen much action, but Wilsrë Quelausé got a brace late into the match. One final corner from Jad added insult to injury when Carter scored her first hat trick in Division 1. “Congratulations to my team,” Janson Atangana said in the post match press event, continuing Atangana stated, “I feel bad for the fans of the Tigers and hope that the team will be able to bounce back from today's defeat.” Head coach Janko Perlog piped in with a politically wise statement, “I don’t feel bad. I feel great.”


Something in addition to "The Murder" happened to Proud Tigers as the season kicked off its second sixth of play. The Tigers got themselves a victory for the first time this season.Whipping boys FK Stassengrade also got their first goal of the season the same afternoon when lifetime player Stanimir Kowić scored from afar. Facing a few injuries, the just retired Wladimirok Slijepčewić activated himself again for play this season, and got a start. Slijepčewić assisted the goal and it was an honor amongst anguish for the returning top flight player, and his ill-equipped side.

Now, in the league proper, Platinastigrade won five matches on top of two from the early run of the season. “We’re not going to be underestimated anymore.” Keeper Wukan Ogrovenić after recording his fourth clean sheet of the season against VZRH Matov-Uri. “Platinastigrade’s done well, but perhaps too well,” sports statical analyst Max Holtz said in an interview with the Aleiusia Star. “Ogrovenić is right to say that the assume the club is being watched. This is a slowly growing side that’s going to be playing full strength sides for the rest of the season.”

Aleiusia Capital suffered their first loss this season when Arnald Gal scored a tap in at home. Capital still sat in second ahead of Vanguardi and VZRH. Fifth place FK Ofau were also a win a few goals behind the league leaders, Ofau’s games were not flashy, but six wins and a draw was better than three of the last four title winners. Below that trophy winning trio was Preo team, who got just four points in five matches. Porto Nowi OR and Imperialismus took a slide in the rankings as well. PREMIER is looking for more excitement surely as they their new club has been stonewalled early by ten sides. The only attack worse has been on poor Stassengrade who look completely out of it. The form Stassengrade is in echoes the six draw season Regal had a few years ago.

Ogroven’s favorite football team *would* be leading, but Capital landslide victory give them the differential needed to pull ahead. Neither team is full ahead however. Platinastigrade is the bridge between the lower top third of table and the very top. Platinastigrade’s old coach had a lot to answer too at DD Porto Nowi when his side got three red cards against Imperialismus. DD Porto Nowi’s rise and continued jockeying with rivals AK Stanimir makes coach Reich’s seat red hot. Kven are ahead of DD, a familiar tale throughout these past seasons. Preo Team might want to start looking at Sanford Der Berg PREMIER, that rematch could affect both Mr. Preobrazhensky and PREMIER’s trajectories.

Word at VZRH is that Riki Schmelling may resign before his side is eliminated, but the title hunt does march on for them. Ofau’s winless run got worse when their players started to go down. The humbler sides are doing as well as expected. Proud Tigers are staring to mesh better after their massive staff changing loss. Cup champions Ribar are a disappointment to be sure, with hot signing Stanko Yakowić hit by the injury bug in what has been a multi year tragedy for the former national team starter. Stassengrade’s boss was out after thirteen matches. Henrich Fürst-Flick resigned, though some say he was removed. Flick found himself work as Proud Tiger’s “Assistant Interim Coach.” Regime change also sees Banfi Teodorić replaced by defender Djoko Zoranić as captain.

Stojan Heiden is out in front for the scoring title, even after he had to start in four Challenger’s Cup matches. Heiden is three goals ahead of rival Jess Kijanskas and Kven captain Želmir Kolarowić. Heiden’s hat trick against Proud Tigers effectively did the trick. Otherwise Heiden has scored one goal or zero in each match. Kolarowić has score four goals from set pieces, three penalties and a sweet free kick against Porto Nowi OR in order to equalize. Maybe Kolarowić will win goal of the season by shooting into his own corner, not fooling the keeper, but flying past like some kind of wild baseball pitch. Another contender was a supersonic kick from Imperialismus’ defender Wukdrag Nikowić. The full back ran past Platinastigrade’s Brankowić without issue. From thirty six meters out on a ball then ascended and descended before landing past the penalty mark and beyond a befuddled Nam Yoo-Jeong.

Kven kicked got an 8-1 victory and then beat the defending champions 1-0 away. Imilić scored in each of Kven’s four matches, while Kolarowić was narrowly behind Stojan Heiden in the scoring charts. The low score versus Stanimir was unexpected, given the sides scored a combined twelve goals in their last encounter. “We were just careful” Marko Ratmirić said after winning player of the game for the first time in his senior career. Capital and Der Berg PREMIER had PREMIER’s highest scoring match of the league campaign. Capital felt they could sling guns against a team designed to attack. Capital were only behind for about seventy minutes, with Wilsrë Quelausé’s assist to Constantine Koellner taking the match into the hands of the former champions.

Both Kven and Capital were behind league leaders Ogroven Vanguardi. A double hat trick for both Jess Kijanskas and Josip Jorowić was overwhelming for Ribar PRD. Defending champions AK Stanimir couldn’t contend with Vanguardi’s backline, who helped generate the only goal of the game. A late comeback allowed Luka Fucaz to deny Capital extra points. A long and valuable unbeaten run was ended by Sanford Der Berg PREMIER, who’s owners get to brag about taking the side from the second division’s mid table to going unbeaten against a title contender. Vanguardi’s trip to Bergsteiger saw them play with a cautious tactics, but keep their lead over Capital. Tying with Capital helped Vanguardi as well, Hermann Hamppe’s two goals for Aleiusia’s top team were equalized by Jaxon Amador and then Josip Jorowić.

DD Porto Nowi lost by three goals to Kven to kick off their final half of matches A Dassow/Gal combo provided the only goal against a Kven side that adapted to their opponents by employing Johathan Willis and Matej Brandt in a double pivot. The pressure was on for Kolarowić to produce, and the national tam captain delivered two assists. DD Porto Nowi also drew 3-3 against Preo Team who had before that secured 4-4 draw gainst Capital via two late goals. “Nice to see our side impersonating the national team,” Iwan Lukawić-Hesse said online, prompting a benching by his coach and former national team assistant coach Elias Hammerschimdt.

Platinastigrade lost six in a row counting matchup fifteen. The continued losses saw some staters shift around. Denis Silvester and “Beautiful” Bobby East made three starts because they each contributed to two goals, one of which saw Silvester take a pass from East and run past two DD Porto Nowi defenders. Even Stassengrade got two points from matches sixteen to twenty. They poor saps drew Sanford Der Berg and then AFK Imperialismus when Danilo Scwartzger shot his first goal of the season in stoppage time. The poor run Platinastigrde was on put coach Rhode on thin ice this season, but the Director of Operations has stood by his man publicly.

Capital and Vanguardi traded spaced at the top of the table, With Capital’s five wins a part of a six game winning streak, with three clean sheets. Vanguardi for their part finished a six match winless streak. While they’re winning again, Jean-Claude Boucher’s side really could’ve used a better when fighting both Capital and Kven. DD Porto Nowi, VZRH, and Preo Team are all still eligible for the league title, but VZRH and Preo Team need perfect records matched with no points being scored by Capital. Those teams could still be in the opening phase of next year’s Challenger’s Cup, but AK Stanimir and Der Berg still have a shot. Platinastigrade and Ofau are in a position similar to Preo and VZRH, needed miraculous runs to match with collapse above. One person who won’t be receive any miracles is Imperialismus head coach Antonije Markowić as he was sacked after losing to Bergsteiger. With Porto Nowi OR’s elimination from IFCF contention, some fans called for Gabrijel Dimitrijewić to go, but others stood by their slick talking head honcho.

Individual matches were notable. Fenstermacher Scwartzhammer got himself another game winner and this time it was at the expense of Begersteiger. Reservist Radmilo Wasilić got an assist. Capital and Porto Nowi had a match which the experts said Porto Nowi had to win. For an hour the match was scoreless, but the new legs of Herman Hamppe scored off the bench. With the dam broken, Janson Atangana knocked in a goal, then assisted Koellner with pulling the game well out of DD’s reach. Kven need some second half magic when they started to fall behind Preo Team. With three goals combined in the last twenty eight minutes of regular time, a Kolarowić penalty sealed two extra points in Kven’s title hunt. Stassengrade won twice! Proud Tigers were down by a goal at the half, and Al Nenadić’s second goal of the night seemed to lift the city’s spirits about him. Banfi Teodorić scored for Stassengrade as Platinastigrade suffered their worst defeat of the season after they’d just ended a large winless streak by beating AK Stanimir.

As the fixture list tightened up, three teams were squeezed out of title contention. Of course VZRH and Preo Team didn’t have a secular prayer, but DD Porto Nowi also dropped the ball twice in a row, and even a win couldn’t keep the from being a win off pace to contend for the title. DD Porto Nowi lost by four Ofau after resting key starters for the cup semi final. With VZRH out of the cup, Riki Schmelling lost his last chance to win a trophy for VZRH, and was sacked. Assistant coach Iwano Filipowić held a demoralized squad together to win at home against Capital in one of the season’s top results. Preo Team’s elimination was very unsurprising, but they couldn’t even improve their standing in IFCF qualification, and even slipped behind fellow long shots AK Stanimir, who at least have a cup title to play for.

At the top of the table sat Capital, who’s winning streak finally ended. The loss to Kven from Dmitar Draganić’s header keeps the championship race tight, as with a swapped result, Capital would be locked into reclaiming the Vase. With the defeat, both Kven and Vanguard could look for last minute comebacks to take home a title. Capital then lost to VZRH in that upset referenced earlier. Kven captain Želmir Kolarowić was not concerned about the two point gap his club needs to overcome, “They are just a tad ahead of us, nothing is set in stone.”

With all the title contenders winning, Vanguardi’s easy win against Stassengrade was for nothing. The other matches were ever easier cakewalks, Capital lead 3-1 after the first half, while Kven more slowly scored their third and fourth goals after seventy five minutes. With six hundred twenty three goals, over 21,500 minutes of play, the waste would finally be filtered out, and one club would stand at the very top of the heap. Aleiusia Capital’s lead on the table held firm the entire final third of the season up to this point, and they were playing the worst side in the league. “Bit of a shame we’re winning our trophy away,” Capital backup Beni Baum grumbled on social media. Kven’s fans had reason to be confident first championship came through their side winning when it mattered most, and opponents tripping on shoelaces. The chances of either side losing were slim, but Capital losing and Kven winning was the magic formula for Iwano Popowić’s band of men.

Baum’s swagger was something Kven fans mocked as they scored twice in just fifteen minutes when they hosted AFK Imperialismus. In poured the blue and orange banners online, full of snark, and a congratulatory post from the Village Council of Kven. One commenter “Ulsachungus” stated “I wagered half my pay through SlobodnoVerme for these men to win.” A different user posted an egg with Constantine Koellner’s face on it being smashed by a pan. As the posts flew in Baum’s club scored their first goal against Stassngrade, who’d be blocking so low you’d think they were defending in Lake Norlyr. Imperialismus for their own part got a goal in near the end of the first half. Wukdrag Nikowić’s massive pass lead to a tap in from Wladimir Kazi.

The second half of the final day saw the title contenders quietly push for the advantage, and Capital scored from a classic Jad corner. Eventually the pressing and transition was too much for some players, Capital captain Luka Lukić rolled his ankle as well. With both sides leading, the zealous supporters of Capital began to hit back against Kven’s online followers. Our friend “Ulsachungus” was given a recommendation from “IntealiKoranjoFan8” to set up a charity fund. The egg video faced a counter attack. Scores of people drew Kven’s logo on eggs and doing their worst. One man took his blow torch to his egg, another white orb was smashed up by a lady who threw it at a lawnmower laying at an angle. Kven scored at the hour mark when Želmir Kolarowić recovered a thrown in, and made a slick pass to Dmitar Draganić, who was happy to collect a brace. Of course, with all the egg talk, it was only fitting that Stassengrade’s backline had egg on its face. Ottoh Milošić intercepted a rolling pass headed for Constantine Koellner, but used the wrong foot. The ball bounced right past keeper Dani Danijelić. An own goal? Really? Really. Capital’s league lead was finalized by the one of the worst performing rosters in recent memory.

Confetti and other celebration materials were brought to the Stassen Stadtstadion by Capital, and with two thirds of the fans in attendance being Capital’s faithful, the Vase awarding ceremony almost felt like the parties at home. Yellow, red, and white flew into the air. Even one thousand five hundred Stassengrade fans celebrated shouting “Elf! Elf! Elf!” into the air. The use of Elf was in reference to the eleven goals Capital didn’t score against Stassengrade, but instead Proud Tigers. The landslide victory was referenced by sports commentator Djoko Weljkowić. Capital would’ve still won even if Kven got two points from nowhere. But let’s say the eleven special goals don’t happen. Capital loses two points, has a lower differential, and nine less goals scored. Beyond just the numbers Capital had an obvious amount of momentum after pounding a home side that badly.” Kven supporters felt crushed, but one, named “Ulsachungus” said, “IT Was pretty obvious to be quite honest. I’ll be taking out a loan now.”


Another two point gap was had implications on the next IFCF cycle. VZRH Matov-Uri looked to just sneak past DD Porto Nowi in the standings when. With no scores in Porto Nowi’s match against cross town rivals Porto Nowi OR. OR never get any press coverage, but a slate of amazing players at the club looked to knock off one of the nation’s top clubs for a second time this season. Worse yet for Porto Nowi, they had a cup final to play in as well, and nobody wanted to face a long term injury. VZRH blasted in a goal a half hour into their last stand. Bergsteiger were opposite to VZRH, looking for a good send off to another drab year. In the second half, Porto Now or kept their lead strong, when Karlo Gabrielstein was counted by Commendant Wukowić. Another goal later gave OR a double against DD Porto Nowi. With DD stuck at fifty one points, VZRH needed to only hold the line, and caretaker Iwano Filipowić could make himself a hero in the former national capital. How fitting was it then, that a former VZRH youth player assisted the tying goal. Miloš Sašawić had left VZRH this season to play as a senior early. Begsteiger’s top heavy side needed the national team prospect. The young man was one of their main creators this season along side Djuras Bartić and Niko Tomiwić, and that vision lead to one of the most consequential pass of Bergsteiger’s modern era. The twenty year old was outside the box, and lobbed that smooth ball up high. The chip shot was right at the scoring foot of Ranko Kowačech.


The other matches had nothing on the line other than pride. Cup finalists AK Stanimir sent out reserves and backups against Ribar, and both attacks faltered. Vanguardi smashed a fellow insurgent team from Ogroven thanks to a penalty from Jaxon Amador where the ball snugly went past the far post. Vanguardi’s disappointing season ended on a high, and that will help them continue to struggle for their first trophy. Next season they will need to improve their attack beyond just Jess Kijanskas and her magic performances. Platinasigrade hosted Sanford Der Berg PREMIER. Sanford’s new team got a double against their region’s top club in a come from behind victory. The oddly quiet offense will need to be worked on, but this was a solid debut overall for the new Der Berg front office. For Platinastigrade, head coach Mikhail Rhode resigned after the matchup. “Platinastigrade was a disappointment,” former coach Helmutow Reich said in his press conference before his new club’s cup final. “I do feel bad for my city. One day things will be right again.” FK Ofau snapped back this season from dropping two divisions last season. The defending Rekadom champions squashed Proud Tigers with three second half goals, and a hat trick by the always bulky Goran Waldić. Hans Palve also got his second Division 1 goal, making up for his injury earlier in the season.

An early start for Heiden made up for a slower send half as Kolarowić ws just a goal away from winning top scorer. Koellner and Kijanskas too the bronze slot, though Koellner played a whole fifteen minutes less this season. Carter and Draganić gave their clubs a second slot in the top ten, while Porto Nowi OR’s top two also cracked the highest echelon of scoring supremacy this year. The seven goals from Branislaw Djurašewić wee the best output of a rotational or substitute player.

Riverside won handily in a division they believe they should not have been playing in. FKP Ottowić County and FK Finansijskigrade got into the top slots, with Finansijskigrade out pacing the competition compared to Banfigrade. Yeah, they also won 6-12 against Univerzitet u Aleiusia, with two penalties a side and an own goal from Univerzitet's keepers. Shockingly, Dragan Rybić was the top scorer with twenty one goals, four of which he scored in that victory over Univerzitet. The next best scorers were teammate Rubert Braun and Riverside's Majia Dana at sixteen each.

Four of the twelve teams from outside the Federal League advanced. Čjan Walls took advantage of a red card to score twice in the last fifteen minutes. Hüelhunde Fruchtbarkeit ground fellow local team Unabhängigkeit to powder. Produktionsstätte Athletik hosted Platinastigrade Studenti and keeper Eike Eggstein made six saves to the opponent’s two. All of Glavni’s lower ranked sides got bested sans one, with Obrazovanje Radničke losing by four goals. That team was given a special slot in the team as FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia was moved into Division 2 this season, and thus had a bye into the later rounds. Industriejskigrade, Porto Nowi Athletik, FK Žitarice had players scoring a hat trick. Ruzhan Stassengrade’s Wiktor Herzog scored once and made an assist while teenager Martek Ratkowić pounded in a third extra time goal. Bauernhaus Okrug needs one hundred six minutes to pull away form the low level club Sturmsburg Südliches. The reserves of AK Stanimir wished their match again Beginn-Davn was that close. Soleburg scored five goals in the second half when they were already leading. Küste got an spot in the tournament after a withdrawal, and they won their opening matchup.

In the last round with local segregation the field began to dwindle. Heavy hitters in the lower leagues like FK Dvorac loze, Politehnika, and Striped Kits were all knocked out and for Dvorac that came at the cost of an injured starter. Politehnika lost late due to a dribble from the young Abdul Haikal. Fruchtbarkeit has an amazing come from behind victory with two goals scored by man of the match Mato Kaz. Late heroics helped Čjan Walls play in the rounds only shootout, where they won. Keeper Miloš Catić ended up with four saves in the shootout, and two other men from Pflugergrade missed a shot. Goalkeeping was tragic for Kosmopolitisch-Kosmopolitskog, who’s starter broke his wrist in a domestic dispute two days before the match. His backup ended up tweaking his right arm near the end of the first half. Both Soleburg and Zrno lost a man in the second half from a red and double yellow respectively. Ogroven Athletik also lost a player from a brutal tackle.

With a few byes, and only some spaces left, sixteen teams fought around the country. This round could be the only inter regional match of the season for some. The Walls did it again, this time against well known cup side FK South Aleiusia. Čjan Walls are the last team from below the Federal League, much to misery of cup side FK South Aleiusia. Fruchtbarkeit needs more late magic, with Mato Kaz this time failing to score, however Stanislaw Slobodanić got a counter goal seconds later. Horbatski Aleiusia Athletik held a commanding lead against Polumjesec, but it almost slipped away. Alter Platz came from behind with two goals and four straight penalties.

Second division teams had five matches together. Banfigrade’s Aligatoro Kawall scored twice for the club he captains. Riverside kept a lead through the last half of play despite the strong counter attacking style of Ovrâd. Penalties were in order when Spartan-Mraw knocked out Žitarice Union. An extra penalty was scored by Mraw in the first half. A cross town match saw DD Aleiusia and Univerzitet u Aleiusia do battle on the city’s east side. Two goals from Andres Zlatkowić got DD Aleiusia a nice victory. An exciting first half was followed up by almost nothing when Hüelhunde hosted Spasavanje-Policija.

Beestagrade lost a huge upset at home against the walls from the Čjan Okrug. Fruchtbarkeit got in on the giant killing fun, performing a “scalping” of Ogroven Sportlich. Sarkewaka Strikers’ fanbase were elated to defeat FK Finansijskigrade. The top offense in the country from two seasons ago looked hopeless, but got a goal at the one hundred eighteenth minute. Penalties came and went, and when the Strikes somehow didn’t throw away the win all eleven staters made themselves famous. Finansijskigrade’s reserve felt they had a chance in the second half to outdo their betters in the tournament. However, a brick wall of Nowi Aleiusia’s “Black and Yellow Brigade” fanbase cheering their club on to a shutout.

With the entry of sixteen of the nation’s best clubs from this season, the cup was about to heat up to a boil. Underdogs had their roughest round yet, with only three lower division sids teated a rival from higher up the ladder. For Ottowić County this will be a season to forget, as they lost on a penalty from Dawor Volland was the only goal of the matchup. Riverside scored just three minutes into a tough match against Porto Nowi OR. The loss was tough fo a team full of offensive talent, and some fan are angry at Albert Ewald’s absence from the squad. Platinastigrade lost in extra time to DD Aleiusa. Bobby East’s final shot of the game was just deflected by young keeper Fynn Lauber who was “honored” to play against famous players from abroad. Čjan’s run ended when Aligatoro Kawall scored from a low rolling pass by Dino Radmanowić.

Ribar PRD and Capital didn’t need their regulars to win, though Capital’s backups and youth talent needed ninety four minutes to cobble together a victory against a local team. Sanford Der Berg and DD Porto Nowi’s response to playing in small venus was to put on master classes while attacking, with DD’s Walt Courtenay scoring just six minutes into a dominant performance over Spartan-Mraw. Two teams with a mix of regulars and reserves were AK Stanimir and Kven FK. Three players without large Division 1 records this season were able to find the back of the net. In the end, Stanimir’s 2-1 lead was extended to 4-1 and later 5-3. The undisputed man of the match was first team regular Markus Rolfes thanks to his two assists and a goal.

Imperialismus hosted Banfgrade and built up steam slowly, outside of the goal seven minutes into the contest. After an hour of leading, Benjamin Erler’s cross to Stajkwon Hokwok went through, and then two minutes later they were awarded a free kick, which Schrader scored. An own goal and a literal flare up in the stands added to Banfigrade’s embarrassing night. Fire Rescue thought they had equalized late, but the officials called Trakan Docik offsides. The Proud Tigers had good luck today, and scored once to advance. AK Stanimir and Vanguardi had the matchup of the round, with some close called for Björnólfur Ernestisson. With all the insanity, a simple juke and shoot maneuver by Marko Petarić won his team the match. Riverside needed a similar move to equalize. In extra time Ethane import Dennis Murray got the game winner one hundred minutes after Bergsteiger drew first blood.

Ribar came to the some of Sanford Der Berg, and the former cup champions ended up routing their upstart opposition after it was all said and done. Petar Karić joked after the match that he’d have scored a third goal if he hadn’t been subbed out. DD Porto Nowi’s hunt for a trophy came back home when Soleburg were utterly outclassed. At the National Sports Complex, Lysistrata Carter’s play was sickly against DD Aleiusia. Compatriot and teammate Constantine Koellner got his first taste of the cup for this season with a header that couldn’t be stopped, and a goal from just inside he box minutes later. Ofau exploited key mistakes by Alkemost Football’s spine to ravage the opposition box, scoring twice in each half.

Porto Nowi’s trophy hunt saw them knock off the defending champions. A last opportunity for extra time saw Ribar wingback Nikola Slabowić score his first senior goal. After equalizing, there was a tension in the air that match could go long, but Walt Courtenay ended Ribar’s dreams by pitching the ball into the far left corner of the net. Riverside’s upset run continues to vindicate a side which feels like it’s better than last season. Imperialismus fought hard in this tournament. Imperialismus met their match when Billibad Probst booted the ball deep for Majia Dana to finish off the game. Ofau and Proud Tigers fought for much longer than Ofau had expected, using their third substitute sixty nine minutes into the match, who they had to replaced after that. The extra time sub, Alek Panić, was the difference maker, and Proud Tiger’s nonexistent backup wasn’t called it. One pair of fresh legs made a run, and when the ball plopped in from of his feet, Panić missed. In penalties Panić was vindicated by scoring the game winner to Wasil Tomiwić’s left. Capital were scored on twenty seven minutes into their match with Stanimir. About a half hour later game wise Ogroven Aukipić’s corner deflected off Kostessen’s shin and Stojan Heiden doubled the lead.

AK Stanimir (1) 3-0 Aleiusia Riverside (2)
DD Porto Nowi (1) 1-0 FK Ofau (1)
AK Stanimir could not be stopped. Riverside’s run was just about to equalize, or even exceed last season’s valiant trip to the finals. “Perhaps they’re simply not used to the elite clubs this year” the commentator mused to his TV and web audience. Stanimir Rekawić scored a double in the first half, and Marko Petarić scored late to rub salt into the watery wounds of Riverside’s back line. “Nothing to be ashamed about with my boys” coach Ziwko Jadić said after the game, “see you next year.” A sweet strike from Arnald Gal at the twenty ninth minute was the only offense Porto Nowi needed to advance back to the cup final. “We’re looking forward to another fight with Capital” Helmoutw Reich told the press after his club’s victory. Wiktor Nebojsa Dassow was the player of the match due to his positional contributions and almost scoring in the opening minute. Of course the victory wasn’t easy. Goran Waldić almost equalized with two shots on goal. Wasim Waldić made a key deflection of the second shot, as it just stayed in bounds long enough to be recollected. The save ended a long streak of play in Porto Nowi’s third. The push wasn’t enough, and a single city final was confirmed.
Finals
AK Stanimir and DD Porto Nowi have been in recent cup finals. But of those thee finals, only one of them saw a team in this match lift the Republic’s Cup. AK Stanimir will be giving a second chance to Carbey, Oronhyatekha, Depping, Ninković, Radkov, Heiden and Djokawić. By contrast Janić, Kewić, Dassow and Gal are the only players to start in both his cup final and DD Porto Nowi’s last attempt. Gal, then a rookie, and Dassow were also starters when DD Porto Nowi last won this tournament. Some believe Wuk Koziwier is not the best player to start, and that he has made too many carless errors. However, the former National Team starter is hungry to prove them all wrong. Other criticism was forward to Stanimir’s decisions desk for starting former captain Klaudio Radkov. “Rolfes Snubbed!” The Aleiusia Star’s sport section printed in bold on its first page.

AK Stanimir enter the final with with Marko Petarić’s hamstring worse for wear. Youth player Žiwadin Injac was added to the backup rotation. Helmutov Reich set up his reserve players to accommodate some of his older players, such as Dagobertsen and Mateo Tafalla. The pair are to be shadowed by youth national team player Yousef Iwanić and the free wheeling Luka Gustafić respectively. Wing back Zoran Karpow was selected as a specialist backup. Valdi Di, who started two finals in a row for this club, is now a backup. Di scored once in this tournament, while Walt Courtenay has scored twice. Stanimir backup Filipostan Wladmirowić scored in the quarter finals against Capital from the bench. “Attack will not be in short supply” sportswriter Djoko Weljkowić stated in his column, then predicting Porto Nowi the winners. Other commentators were skeptical, citing Dagobertsen’s imperfect positioning, a potential death sentence for the back line in this set up.

Summary
The opening half saw neither side agree on where the ball should be. Was the game going to take place near Ernestisson, or were Stanimir’s wing backs and midfield going to keep moving the ball near Wasić. After two shots on goal in fifteen minutes, the law of averages put the ball squarely nearly the middle of the pitch, with Stanimir’s passing coordination being superior. The wingbacks began to keep themselves glued, as Porto Nowi’s center backs tried to keep solid while also keeping Stanimir’s forwards from making any sick crosses. As the opening half went on, Branić began to lose traction against Rekawić. The attacking midfielder ran, but was faced with a difficult press. Porto Nowi’s overworked wingbacks were not guarding Erik Djokawić, who quietly rolled the ball into the center of the box, where Heiden knocked home a goal. Play continued swiftly after Heiden took a bow. Those wingbacks of Stanimir were up quite high, and without a dedicated defensive midfielder, Mateo Tafalla slotted into an open space where he could pass easily to Jakow Kristowić. The equalizer came near the end of the half, and Porto Nowi was induced into a high.

The second half saw Stanimir control possession early, but they couldn’t get in a solid shot, Porto Nowi were pressing a just the right times, something you’d expect in a team’s third meeting. Eventually a corner was awarded. Thorben Aleksander took himself to the marker. The ball came out of it’s resting place, and Yuri Kewić bounced it up into the palm of Wasim Wladić. Wladić saw the ball bounce, and then lurched to his left unsuccessfully as Rekawić scored. Shortly after this, Stanimir captain Wuk Niković went off due to a meniscus rupture. Markus Rolfes proved critics right by assisting Heiden’s second goal of the evening. Porto Nowi shifted its gears and sent off Tafalla and Kristowić for fresher legs. Despite losing their only scoring duo so far, Porto Nowi’s depth meant that the team was running smoothly and maybe even better than before. Tae-Hong took his weariest players out within minutes of a scary shot from Dragonowić. As play continued, Dassow shot from thirty five yards and Ernestisson’s reflexes were not enough as he fell back. Stanimir’s grip on posession began to slip after that as they made despite attacks upwards. Extra time loomed and one final throw in came from Yuri Kewić. The toss was intercepted by Markus Rolfes, who sprinted in his quest to make history. Perhaps as pass to the open would’ve been a good idea, as Rolfes got knocked over by Wuk Koziwier. Just then both sides has ran out of chances, and would have to play on for another half hour.

In extra time coach Tea-Hong quickly removed Djokawić from play for the solidly drab Filipostan Wladmirowić. Some in the stand bemoaned the man who hadn’t scored once in the league all season. A wing back being changed out would have been preferable, but Stanimir lacked any in their seven backups. Reich brought along Zoran Karpow, and when he came on in place of Yuri Kewić Depping was sucking wind. Arnald Gal’s third shot of the night was finally on the money. Gal had been invisible for most of the match, but his youthfulness vitality was shrining now against other young stallions. Five minutes remained, and then four, and three were left after that. Porto Nowi fans were signing tensely their songs of triumph against a cross town rival. Oh look, Petrus Barić just passed the ball into Wadić’s hands for an equalizer. Petrus Barić just passed the ball into Wadić’s hands fo an equalizer? Boos ran down from Porto Nowi’s section, Barić gave the gun show to Dassow, and then bottles were pelted down as a chanting mob demanded an offsides call for some unknown reason. Order had to be restored slowly, and ultimately the two teams were tied. A shootout was about to come.

Given what had happened a few years prior, Porto Nowi were confident they could win the shootout, just as they had done four finals ago against Banfigrade. The former league champions were not to be undone however, and scored their opening volley thanks to Stojan Heiden. Arnald Gal, Thorben Aleksander, and then Zoran Karpow all scored. Markus Rolfes came up with a burst of energy, but the ball went too straight and was caught with ease. Dassow pointed to Barić and sent his ball into the upper right corner without issue. Down a goal, Ratimir Grbić scored and put his knees to the grass with his head lifted up. Valdi Di was next and he was careless, performing a feint, and almost losing the ball. Still, the orbs was past the posts. Stanimir Rekawić’s season with AK Stanimir had been disappointing. He was supposed to help a strong team defend a title, but coming from relegation in Audioslavia wasn’t easy. Rekawić national team performance hadn’t been world beating either. Up he came to the penalty mark. His eyes poured his angst into Wasić, and everyone could see it. The do or die kick came like a rocket after waiting. Wasić was fast enough, in the wrong direction. Even so, Rekawić only at best bought his club time. Yousef Iwanić was next in line, a penalty taker at the youth level. The adult leagues are not the same, and Iwanić shot too hard. Julian Depping made the first sudden death shot look easy, and then it was Nikola Branić’s turn. A shot at immorality awaited the national team player, and only Björnólfur Ernestisson could stop the rapid shot that came out. When he did, even the brick facade cried out.

Season 78, Local Leagues Supplemental dossier
Rekadom
Orao Krila Athletik dissolved before the local leagues began, and a cobbled together continuity side was allow to compete in the Rekedom League, but with a deduction in points. Could they survive? No, they could not. With the obvious side out of the way, the other fifteen teams looked to avoid two bottom slots. Newly promoted side Koža struggled through the entire season, their second stint at this level began with three losses and then two draws, their two wins after plus the two draws were half of Koža’s points. Two wins late in each half of the season against “Orao Rekadom” were the bright spots afterwards. Nikiloji took the final relegation slot and were the only side to collect less than six points against the bottom two sides. Horbatski Athletik’s loss to Astra AK on the final day gave knocked them out of the running for national qualifying.

Fellow promoted side Zeleton Okrug got themselves back to those lofty heights instead. Miloš Simeoniwić, national team striker who played for Zeleton as a boy, congratulated the side on social media. Beginn-Davn’s five match losing streak durring the middle of the season put their campaign in question as the side fell down from Division 2 and was now just seven points safe from being stuck in the third tier next season. Davn’s reserves (a composite team) and FK Woz cleaned out their staff rooms mid year, and Woz was ultimately able to improve on their last try. Zebra Pastirblata also did better than season 77 with two extra wins and six less losses. “We’re glad to have our best year ever” club chairman Iwan Erić wrote on Twii.tur, before being retwiited by many team members who contributed to the season.

The title race went to the final day when Astra, Sarkewaka and Raspon all won their matches. Astra were a working man’s team while winning their highest level trophy in club history. The yellow blue and red side had neither the most goals, best defense, or strongest differential. Unfortunately for the Sarkewaka neighborhood of Porto Nowi and the city of Raspon, nobody wins without the most points. Sarkewaka title loss was disheartening as they won three straight and had to defeat the feared attack of PRD Ofau. PRD were leading the league early with three opening victories that were all won by two goals, but slipped around mid table near the end. Ofau’s wild brand of football was a stark contrast from the last Rekadom League, fitting for a club that went out of business in the off season due to debts.

Players of the Season
GK: Wladmir Ristić (AK Raspon)
DF: Harald Raykowić (Sarkewaka Strikers)
DF: Marko Markoheim (Beginn-Davn)
DF: Nikola Androwić (Astra AK)
DF: Trewor Sakz (Sarkewaka Strikers)
MF: Wladmir Nikolawić (Astra AK) (Player of the Season)
MF: Iwo Al-Dosari (Zebre Pastirblata)
MF: Luka-Wlad Yurić (PRD Ofau)
FW: Barto Wukić (AK Raspon)
FW: Djoko Illić (FKP Cawgrade)
FW: Erik Krstowić (Astra AK)
Wladmir Nikolawić was the center of Astra’s entire game throughout the season, and in twenty seven appearances, two off the bench, he assisted thirteen of the side’s goals, far more than any other Astra footballer. Barto Wukić’s eighteen goals couldn’t be beat by any man or beast, even defender of the season Harald Raykowić had trouble containing Raspon’s new hot prospect. Marko Markoheim had other issues, out four games this season due to injury, the twenty year old was however a dynamic ball player when healthy for the Red and Blacks. Djoko Illić made playing in an isolated 4-5-1 look easy as he scored fourteen goals. Iwo Al-Dosari was perhaps the best off ball midfielder in the third division this season, and is the second Pastirblata to receive honors in the local leagues.

Ogroven
FKP went unbeaten at home, and with the an inability to drop too many goals they won their second regional title in the past few years. Crwenipoklongrade and Brdo Pasa won their final matches over the bottom two clubs to pass Esseglein and Industriejskigrade when the later two sides drew on Esseglein’s soil. Crwenipoklongrade’s ultra impressive five goal win over Welika-Astra was an outlier for them. The four way tie was solved but Zanatlija kept pace by thumping Spartanac 2-0. Alkemost Football’s away loss against Pflugergrade was decisive in sending the team down, but the goal differential would not have been kind either. Crvenopoklon lost their last game in the division champions backyard, but it didn’t matter. The Esseglein-Crvenopoklon match in Esseglein was a five goal per team draw, and thanks to red cards Esseglein also won 7-1 against the division champions. Of course, none of it would have mattered, but the degrading state of affairs at Pflugergrade’s main ground saw them denied an entry in FLF competition.

Champions Matov-Uri were awarded two spots on the division’s all star team, head coach Niko Brahms wasn’t displeased, “our team may not have been flashy, but ants don’t play music.” Maximo Jurgenić and his goal a game average won him the best striker award. The top scorer however was teammate Juri Gabler who was technically a midfielder. Goalkeeper Iwo Milošić slayed dragons match after match, picking up seven clean sheets in fifteen appearances. He would have recorded eight had it not been for a wild backless by Petar Borilowić. Marko Kneller was the top player this season, scoring five goals and playing up the pitch as a center back.

Hügeltaldom North
Bauernclub lost their best attacker who decided to retire young and start a family. The staff tried to adjust the squad to be more defensive, and while this task was accomplished, the club couldn’t avoid a drop. Kernwuchs, Nizine, Djurowac, and Studenti all were able to survive on the final day. Studenti had the worst of luck, losing 5-1 in Soleburg, their second four goal loss of the season. Ninze drew bottom feeders Bauernclub, but only needed a point. The relegation battle’s last stop was Kernwuchs as their fans clashed with Djurowac. No goals came in the first half, but each side scored in the second, as reports of Nizine’s survival spread, both teams had a change of energy, Djurowac pushed harder and hard in the final ten minutes. All the effort paid off with a free kick, but midfield greenhorn Nikola Petarawić faltered. Another missed win, and relegation followed. Of all the new sides, Sewerna Twrdjawa finished in the top half, and they led the league after three matches. In the end however nothing was in doubt after long as Ruzhan recaptured the regional title ten points clear of any rivals after a twentieth day win versus Soleburg.

Roth Kühn scored two hat tricks along the way during his second season as Ruzhan’s leading attacker, and also they chief penalty taker. While indisputable, Wiktor Herzog contributed just as much, and assisted many of Kühn’s scores. Ruzhan was represented twice as much in the team as any other club. Antonio Jaroslawić was the top shot stopper in Hügeltaldom, a real man’s defender, partner Boris Unterbrink was a creative fullback. Karlheinz Pauli saved too many shots to count, and Bartolomej Danić scored two from long range. While Strumsburgs defend Niko Ekkhard resigned a five year deal, Iwor Schumacher’s future is up in the air. Among these players was the tall and stocky Randolf Zinke.

Hügeltaldom South
Local rules prohibit relegated sides from returning to FLF Qualifying next season. Even so, Fruchtbarkeit established a foothold for next year, one win out of a championship. Fruchtbarkeit also took time out of the season to make a statement against local foes. Zrno, a club associated with socially conservative local officials. Fruchtbarkeit endorsed a boycott of their away days against Zrno. Both sides refused to visit the other’s stadium. Fruchtbarkeit won both matches. Ultimately the Dragons won their first regional title, the final push was challenged due to midfielder Miško Milowanowić suffering an injury, but even with stumbles the Dragons were a win clear. Klub 20 came out on top of the promotion scrap, while new qualifying rules left a slot open for Bauernhaus Okrug. Relegation was never really in doubt, and the relegated sides mustered up a combined point total equal to just five wins. The victories of Žitarice were consequential enough. Firstly, the game against FKP Ribar injured an opposition midfielder and fired a coach. The second win was against AK Rand in their last realistic shot to win a match.

FW: Linus Ebersberg (Ovrâd Dragons)
FW: Hans Djordje (Ovrâd Dragons)
FW: Hans Halein (Bauernhaus Okrug)
Southern Hugeltaldom’s best player was Iwan Zanko in his third senior season. Four goals and seven assists put Zanko into over a quarter of Fruchtbarkeit’s scoring situations. Linus Ebersberg was the runner up for the POTS award as the best off-ball forward in the third tier. However, his lack of a finish helped give Hans Djordje something to do, and granted Zanko an award. Abdullah Sallah maneuvered into Ovrâd from Politehnika on loan, and had a grand time in Hugeltaldom’s top league, just missing out the top defender spot to Dragon’s center back Ander Brinck. The keeper of the season was Klub 20’s number one Hando Andrich, who’s family has won this prize before.

Glavni
An early surge from promoted side Kosmopolitskog fizzled. The top contenders for the regional title became FK South Aleiusia and Striped Kits. The turning point in the race came on the seventeenth day of action, when the Striped Kits avenged their first lost of the season by beating South Aleiusia 3-0. Horbatski Aleiusia Athletik then slayed South Aleiusia, but lucky them the next week the same fate befell Striped Kits. The final factor in the title race was late season consitancy, and the teal shirted black striped kits of Striped Kits went unbeaten on a twenty six point run, while South Aleiusia eighteen point run had two losses, and put Korvann Cannons in second. Even Aleiusia Capital's reserves got ahead for a time while they hovered around second to fifth, sans being in last and in sixth after the opening two rounds. The Striped Kits felt like they should not have been in this division, and they proved themselves right by dominating on both sides of the ball. They did so by scoring over two goals a match, and only losing by one and two goals in defeats.

Finishing in the top half of the table a dramatic goal for some sides, as that was the cutoff to challenge for play at a higher level. With two reserve teams in the top eight, and was Regal well ahead in ninth, eyes honed in on places ten and eleven. Gauners had goal difference on their side and so they needed Alter Platz to lose during their third season in a row of having the best season ever (on paper it was only the second). Alter Platz were drawn against a South Aleiusia looking to play spoiler to add feelings to epicaricacy to an emotional season. Gauners had Nowi Aleiusia to play. What luck, one side was against a strong but faltering side that wanted to shut up its haters, and the other was against one of the worst squads in the entire third tier, a team Alter Platz had just beaten to take the lead, and a team the Gauners had no issues against Nowi as Nowi's sole goal came while already down three goals. The only issue was that even into injury time, nobody had scored in the other match. Did AK Alter Platz park the bus in the second half as if they were a run public transport system in a thrid world nation? Yeah, they did. But Alter Platz also got a point in the end. A local member for National Assembley, Ognjena Šain awarded the starters with ribbons. Rumor in town is that some members of the team burned ribbons in private at a cookout due to Ms. Šain's political history outside the capital district.

It was one to forget for Nowi Aleiusia, who were outgunned at the pro level, they lost their first six, won away from home against Regal, and then on day twelve they beat Kožalopta. Both wins were by 1-0 margins. Only on the wenty eigth matchday could Nowi muster up a victory, and it ended up eliminating Korvann Cannons from title contention oddly enough. Under normal circumstances, the relegation battle would have been a drag race. Instead it was a blowout due to an overabundance of teams from the capital region in the FLF system. Thus Kožalopta Profesionalni went from having a mild escape on the back of a losing streak, to relegation ten points behind Politehnika, who were a long way behind Gauners FK.

Adamić attacked and assisted all season, the dominant player was the second best scorer in the season with fifteen goals, one goal behind striker of the season Cezar Millandrowski. Samee Kartsen’s thirteen goals tied him with Kamber. While all of them, and Michi Klaus, got in the awards section for their attacking play, Miloš Lukić was a total destroyer, assisting three times, and scoring twice. Speaking of stopping, Iwanow Scuttz helped shut down Striped Kits opponents, and Scuttz really should looking into playing at a higher level forever. Stojiljkowić and Stanimirić were ultra tough defenders, and Stanimirić was versatile in a 4-5-1/4-2-4 hybrid formation.

Season 78 Awards Supplemental dossier
3-D Com All XI
GK: Earl Wilson (NWK) (Aleiusia Capital) (All XI Debut)
DF: Steffanow Kostessen (Aleiusia Capital) (All XI Debut)
DF: Zaur-Luka Igorić (Ogroven Vanguardi FK) (2)
DF: Iñaki Imabayama (HIN) (Kven FK) (2)
DF: Yuri Kewić (DD Porto Nowi) (2)
MF: Želmir Kolarowić (Kven FK) (3)
MF: Stanimir Rekawić (AK Stanimir) (All XI Debut)
MF: Ryan McCormack (TKT) (VZRH Matov-Uri) (All XI Debut)
FW: Stojan Heiden (AK Stanimir) (4)
FW: Constantine Koellner (NPH) (Aleiusia Capital) (2)
FW: Arnald Gal (DD Porto Nowi) (2)
HC: Janko Perlog (Aleiusia Capital)

Alternate players
GK: Björnólfur Ernestisson (GRF) (AK Stanimir)
GK: Radu Bartok (NPH) (Kven FK)
DF: Hermann Hamppe (Aleiusia Capital)
DF: Jan Thimig (Ogroven Vanguardi FK)
MF: Luka Lukić (Aleiusia Capital)
MF: Haarland Blagojewić (Porto Nowi OR)
FW: Jess Kijanskas (BRE) (Ogroven Vanguardi FK)
FW: Max-Otto Bergmann (Proud Tigers)

The top story was the newness of almost all players who were on the the All XI team this season. Four players mad their debut, two of which were from the champions. In addition only two players were on their third list or more, and Heiden was the player with most appearances, this one being Heiden’s fourth inclusion on the list. Capital defender Kostessen multiple skills made him the top defensive player in the league. Želmir Kolarowić of Kven was the standout midfielder, while AK Stanimir got the nod on the attack thanks to Stojan Heiden’s stellar performances. Capital were the best represented side on the list of the eight teams on either list. Two sides, Porto Nowi OR and Proud Tigers landed on the alternate list thanks to some offensive bright spots in Blagojewić and Bergmann.

Ljuban Iwanić Award (Player of the season)
MF: Želmir Kolarowić (Kven FK)

MF: Stanimir Rekawić (AK Stanimir)
FW: Stojan Heiden (AK Stanimir)
DF: Zaur-Luka Igorić (Ogroven Vanguardi)
MF: Ryan McCormack (TKT) (VZRH Matov-Uri)

Kolarowić accepted his award humbly, being selected against all of the other members of the All XI team and its alternates. The skill Kolarowić showed even with a slight decline in pace was impressive. Kven’s captain was involved in the most scoring situation of any player in sason 78, and if this is the new Kolarowić he will have a long career. AK Stanimir was a club others must harbor some jealousy towards. AL Stanimir got both second and third place with Rekawić an Heiden while the league champs got nothing from their five award candidates. Ryan McCormack was the only foreign player in the top five, and was the only member of the list not to win some kind of accolade this season. Coach of the Season Janko Perlog got his second nod of the award after taking home his third title in the past five seasons.

Best Young Player (21 and under)
DF: Zaur-Luka Igorić (Ogroven Vanguardi FK)

GK: Björnólfur Ernestisson (GRF) (AK Stanimir) (tied with Imilić)
FW: Wladmir Imilić (Kven FK) (tied with Ernestisson)
FW: Osman Arsenowć (Preo Team)
DF: Denis Pretchel (Platinastigrade)

The national team starter was well ahead of the joint second candidates. With the exception of Arsenowć, all of these players have senior national team experience, or are set to the near future. Many of them are fast and skilled, but Igorić was the most productive of the bunch as both a supporter and an attacker. While his defense isn’t the greatest, he does enough to get by in a strong back line. Being one of the five best players of the season helps greatly.

Best New Signing
MF: Stanimir Rekawić (AK Stanimir)

DF: Bwhai Herron (CMT) (Ogroven Vanguardi FK)
GK: Wang Bo (YHZ) (Sanford Der Berg PREMIER)
FW: Stevan Vlahović (Aleiusia Capital)
MF: Mateo Tafalla (TEQ) (DD Porto Nowi)

Rekawić faced tragedy in Audioslavia when his side was sent down, while he wishes to return to a nation like Audioslavia, he’ll always have a home in the Rekan Leagues. AK Stanimir got a great replacement in Rekawić for the box to box role, with a tinge of creativity to boot, literally. Vanguardi got immediate progress with Herron, the rookie having a great debut season. Wang Bo was a slid shot stopped for the wild Sanford season, and Mateo Tafalla isn’t Rybki, but he’s great in his own ways.

Best Backup (ten starts or less)
FW: Branislaw Djurašewić (VZRH Matov-Uri)

DF: Zoran Karpow (DD Porto Nowi)
FW: Iwano Hundertmark (AK Stanimir)
MF: Franziz Reus (Ogroven Vanguardi FK)
MF: Willi Lutz (Kven FK)
Goal after goal after goal were banged in by the award winner. Djurašewić was a high impact substitute and even was a capable starter in his appearances. Should he stay with VZRH, he will be their starter next season. Zoran Karpow, Iwano Hundertmark, are also footballers who will be in their club’s futures if the clubs choose to take advantage of their youth talent. Franziz Reus and Willi Lutz are players who are older, Reus significantly so, but they will still have years left to play in the game, especially if they are in a rotational role.

Comeback Player of the Year
MF: Wilner Djurowić (FK Ofau)

DF: Pregrag Maciejowski (Platinastigrade)
F/M: Hans Palve (FK Ofau)
MF: Stanimir Rekawić (AK Stanimir)
DF: Wuk Gröss (Sanford Der Berg PREMIER FK)

Wilner Djurowić was loaned to Žitarice Union two seasons ago, attempting to make it on a side that was below this division. After some time in Division 2, Djurowić was sold off to a side guaranteed to play at the highest level. The young player wasn’t the hottest player in the division, but his struggles with injuries made many respect him. There major questions if the thirty six year old Pregrag Maciejowski would continue to play as a substitution for the backline, but he adjusted well to playing a center back more often than his tradition fullback role. It was a drag race between the two according to analysts at RekanSport, but Djurowić bested the veteran in the end.

Fair Play Award
Handler Svile FK, 1 red, 3 yellows, 0 yellow/reds, 36 games, 6 points, 0.1666… average

Bergsteiger FK, 1 red, 6 yellows, 1 yellow/red, 40 games, 9 points, 0.225 average
Traktor Klub 1 red, 4 yellows, 1 yellow/red, 31 games, 7 points, 0.2258… average
Stanimir Aleiusia AK, 0 red, 7 yellows, 0 yellow/reds, 30 games, 0.2333… average
FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia, 2 reds, 1 yellow, 0 yellow/reds, 30 games, 0.2333… average

While the Fair Play Award no longer gives you a spot in the second tier of Rekan football, Handler Svile were able to win the award with a charitable season of kind play. Janko Ratzlaff-Reder receive both one yellow and the red card for Svile, the red card costing his side against Hüelhunde FK at home. The yellow card came in a home victory against Duisgrade Athletik by delaying a throw in for around a minute. First division side Bergstiger were able to avoid any sendings off until late in the season. FK Univerzitet u Aleiusia got into the top five for a second season in a row, a great sign of The Schoolboys’ improving footballing culture.

Federal Football League of Zeta Reka & Hügeltaldom
Federativna Liga Football Zeta Reka i Hugeltaldom/Bundesliga Fussball Rekadom und Hügeltaldom
Season 79
Season Intro, SuperChallange, Qualifying, IFCF Pt 1

A new season of Rekan football introduced new ideas to the league. A new top division format, qualifying changes, a new pre season competition, and some strong international play.

A brand new league system has been finalized after the vote at the 78th Season’s pre season League meeting. Under the format, many of the top division’s slots are pre ordained for teams who have done well in the prior three seasons. Using a points system and a simple algorithm of division and addition, teams are ranked. The top eight teams in the League Points system are automatically added to Division 1. “This presents a huge opportunity for smaller teams to qualify,” League Spokesperson Ribar Žekowić told Reka TV’s sportscasters when confronted about the changes “Now, without having to play the best teams from last season, clubs can have a more competitive schedule, and perhaps win their qualifying groups.” Others have been harsh against the system. An anonymous letter from five former members of the League’s Executive Committee called it “an affront to meritocratic play.”

No matter what side someone is on, the changes were made, and are easy to follow, if visualized.

With these ranks accounted for, the FLF qualifying system needed adjustment, each year more or less slot from the region will be up for grabs. Some seasons these could be more, or less. An entire region could be competing for the second division, or all slots could be awarded in the local matches. With Rekadom and Ogroven this season’s qualifying will be razor tight, while the other regions have changed as well.
Available Qualifying Slots

3D-Com Super Izazow/Superherausforderung/SuperChallange
With the allocation of eight free slots into Division 1 of the Federal Football League, this left fair few teams without bookings. IFCF Qualifiers were something four teams had to worry about, but there was sill time for a new event. Thus the Federal League created the Super Challenge, an eight team two round robin tournament. After a week it was sponsored by telecommunications brand 3D-Com. The event was a chance to test tactics, give players extra match time, and also served as form of bargaining rights.

A new format for Rekadom accounted for the automatic qualifications of DD Porto Nowi, AK Stanimir and FK-PRD Ofau. The absence of Rekadom’s two heaviest hitters, and other teams being gone, led to some fresher blood in the tournament. Even so, it seems like old faces did best in the first group when Porto Nowi OR and the ultra youthful Astra AK won half of their games. In the end, the group came down to the final fifteen minutes, when Porto Nowi OR won after playing against Zelton Okrug FK with a man injured. Two goals later, Porto Nowi OR continued their quest to get back into the first division. Group B was a shocker as top seeds Beginn-Davn team ended up playing from behind in the reverse half of the round robin. Davn hen fell behind in minutes against Sarkewaka Strikers, and could only equalize at home. Group C was seen as a group of death with Ottowić County and Handle Svile and top pot four side FKP Cawgrade. It was Zebre Pastirblata who won in the end. The mostly homegrown contingent of talent from the okrugs’s between Porto Nowi and Ofau won three games in a row to start the campaign, before losing at home, winning again, but then drawing. The top seeds finished below each other in the standings, putting both in the third tier of football this season.

The top sides advanced to the final qualifying round. Porto Nowi OR, seen as group favorites, dropped five points in the opening two games, while Strikers won at home by two goals against Zebre Pastirblata. OR and Pastirblata had a rematch where midfielder Zorano Lukawić equalized for Pastirblata at the last minute. The draw was decisive as it put Sarkewaka Strikers out of Porto Nowi OR’s reach. Pastirblata and OR took aggression out on Sarkewaka’s men after this, but it did not matter. The Strikers will be making their top flight debut in the professional era.

Play-in
Preo Team 5-2 Ogroven Sportlich (4-1, 1-1)

With the top two group winners advancing to a play-in, only the winningest teams could make it to the dance. Preo Team and Ogroven Sportlich both went unbeaten. Preo Team’s new perfect record was dashed by a skilled Zanatlija team who really impressed the region this time. The odd team out was FKP Matov-Uri, but they earned promotion with three solid victories. Lower pot teams had trouble, with only two teams from the lower two pots entering the top half of the standings by the end. Spasawanje-Policija lost at home in their opening game by giving up five goals. The club ended up finishing third in he group, but only confirmed their place on the final day. Duisgrade Athletik got into the second division last season in a complicated drama of off field events, but came nowhere close to returning this time, only winning their second game in the round robin. The best offense ended up winning each group and were always at least joint first in the differential column. The worst sides offensively only finished at the bottom once. “Defense wins second place?”

The play in saw two teams who lorded over their groups face off. Preo won home advantage due to an extra win, and things looked good for them after the first game of play. A counter attacking side, Preo Team cut through Sportlich and their anemic backline like butter. Three goals were scored in the first half, and only a set piece could be fired into Preo Team’s net. The second match saw a slightly weakened Preo Team played against a Sportlich side that was more solid. Sportlich drew first blood, but couldn’t get close. “We’re back in the hunt for glory” squad skipper Brankiko Nikowić told the press after the second game. For Sportlich it was another season with a heartbreaking beginning.

Sanford/Der Berg/PREMIER’s six wins came about by being untouchable at home, with two goals a game on average, and most goals were conceded against hostile opposition crowds. Only Bergsteiger’s Ranko Kowačech could even score in Sanford’s backyard. Bergsteiger themselves had a dramatic time, they drew against a fired up Ruzhan team on match six. Then Banfigrade were fighting for survival in the next game, their final chance for points. Aligataro Kawall’s two second half goals tied the sides, but plucky play by early season signing Nemanja Wukowić gave Sanford a win, and put them at thirteen points to Ruzhan’s twelve. The last match day saw Sanford play Ruzhan, while Bergsteiger faced Stassengrade. Stassengrade had been predicted to get back into the top flight, even after their poor performance last time, so without any chance of making it, they looked for their first win. The competition was fierce for Ruzhan, as they dropped three goals in the first half. That loss combined with a similar win for Bergsteiger, and thus Bergsteiger will be in their fourth straight Division 1 season. The relegation battle was tight, but had also been decided by the final day due to Banfigrade getting a bye on the last day. Failures from Stassengrade’s and Banfigrade’s were a total embarrassment for both sides, and Banfigrade will need to finish first in the local leagues if they wish to find redemption next year. What makes things so bad for Banfigrade is that the tam lost by two goals only twice, and even then they were only down three goals for nine minutes against PREMIER.

The southern Hügeltaldom qualifying system’s two phase system was cruel to some teams who were hot and cold a the wrong moments. Those sides, Hüelhunde, Žitarice, Ovrâd and Beestagrade, all got entries in the second division. Žitarice lost starter Iwan Bartsch to a bone injury, and ended up flatlining on the attack. For Hüelhunde the situation was most embarrassing as their two defeats came back to back, and a failure to win often cost them in a group with equal losses. FK Ovrâd’s supporters were peeved to lose out on the top group because their only loss was worth the same as their two victories. Ovrâd Dragons just slinked into the top group, and needed some “yellow and blue magic” to get past the established teams. Ribar’s course into the first division was that of total domination, as they won two games by four goals thanks to the best attack in the cycle. “We’re making a bold statement,” club ambassador and retired captain Ogroven Matow told reporters at Ribar’s home ground after a thumping of Žitarice Union, “Our club and our city are back. Last time was a trial run, and we’re going far this time.”

*Denied entry into FLF Division 2 due to stadium rules last season and a massive rodent infestation. The club was awarded cash by the Glavni FA to keep the side afloat and to play in the Republic’s Cup. The club also won a lawsuit during the offseason to collect TV fees as a high court ruled the denial of an entry FLF Div 2 was “outstanding.” Spartan-Mraw was awarded a qualification spot below the worst Division 2 side from Glavni, Fire Rescue.

Qualifying powerhouses Aleiusia Capital got a free ride this season. While three of the final four sides were pedestrian, the Capital power vacuum seemed to be filled by the Cannons from Korvann. The Cannons were one of three lower seeded sides to win, and the only one of the three who had to play in a penalty shootout. Seven attempts in, Cannons left back Miloš Grgić scored, their fans throwing a firework in the stands shortly afterwards. The slight fire damage wasn’t noticeable when the side hosted Proud Tigers, and won via a goal in each half. The second quarter of the tournament saw Finansijskigrade get a solid challenge from Kosmopolitisch-Kosmopolitskog. The Kosmos scored under a minute in the second game, but couldn’t make the series equal. Stanimir Aleiusia AK provided second round opposition after besting DD Aleiusia. Finansijskigrade had less of a challenge when captain Dragan Rybić scored three times. The side was shaken in the second match when a dirty tackle from defender Plamen Djordić took out Rubert Braun for the next round agains the Tigers. In the big match, two attacking sides were methodical, but the tax haven of Finansijskigrade had a hero in Iwan Hortić. Hortić’s away goal came late from the fullback’s throw in. The long distance shot gave enough momentum for Finansijskigrade to make a top flight return.

The second half of the qualifying bracket had two favorites, AFK Imperialismus had to advance from this stage last year on penalties. Aleiusia Riverside had been shockingly knocked out in the second round after coming off a season where Riverside finished second in the Republic’s Cup tournament. This time, both teams made it to the second round. Imperialismus big man Stajkwon Hokwok scored two doubles in his three appearances against sides who had been playing in local leagues last year. Nobody could score away from home when Riverside tangled with Horbatski Aleiusia. Riverside showed the most depth, with a more complex attack. Riverside three different goal scorers (Yeah, three, they scored an own goal). Horbatski used a direct long passing, counter attacking system. Two goals by each side while on the road but the series into both extra time and then penalties. Riverside had clawed back when they least expected it, and the penalty shootout wasn’t crazy. Their next series was a rematch against Spartan-Mraw. Mraw beat Riverside last time, and won the first match. A second comeback was needed, and it worked. The third series was unique. Riverside wasn’t defeated the first game, but they didn’t win with 70% of possession thanks to a penalty from Zoran Markešić. Markešić, who had been bough from Platinastigrade during qualifying, scored again shortly after Riverside drew first blood at home. The second half of the final leg saw Choi Kyung-Soo add some padding minutes in and thus kick Imperialismus back down to Division 2.

IFCF Run-Down, Pt 1

Qualifying and Super Challenge mixed with a front loaded IFCF schedule. Four sides last season earned slots in some part of the international footballing machine. Capital as champions were placed into the early preliminary rounds of the Champion's League, while the opening round of the Challenger's Cup played host to DD Porto Nowi, Ogroven Vanguardi FK, and Kven FK.
Champion’s League
First Preliminary Round
Arenes FC (GTI) 3-4 Aleiusia Capital (ZRH) (3-2, 0-2)
Coach Janko Perlog came into his fourth Champion’s League qualifying campaign with confidence. Kven FK had trouble in Champion’s League qualifying under Perlog, but had advanced to the Challenger’s Cup group stage once before. Capital are a side that is perhaps even better from a talent perspective than those Kven teams. Arenes FC has been out of action for a season due to issues facing their home nation. Arenes are a club to be respected, with six players representing the Isles at the last Cup of Harmony. A rusty but well motivated club, Arenes actually took the first matchup at home. The National Sports Complex was jam packed for Capital’s comeback attempt. With the sale of Constantine Koellner being floated, he was not selected to play either game. Fenstermacher Scwartzhammer was elected for both matchups. A budding prospect in his own right, Scwartzhammer got his first IFCF goal early against Arenes. With two away goals, the lead made Capital’s supporters feel cozy, but the team wasn’t loose. Capital continued to press and attack, and one final goal from Lysistrata Carter totally sealed the deal.

Second Preliminary Round
Inkopolis FC (SQR) 0-1 Aleiusia Capital (ZRH) (0-0, 0-1)
Capital looked for a victory against Squidroidia’s champions Inkopolis FC. Capital’s quest for a goal came up short, but Inkopolis didn’t get many chances at home. After a goalless draw, the teams came to aleiusa. The matchup was a homecoming for national team player Tomislaw Radowić. Radowić always troubled the big many sides like Capital, and he was solid again. The matchup was also treated more like a home opener than the last matchup, with a ceremonial air filling the National Sports Complex. Former goalkeeper Ribar Žekowić into the Capital Hall of Fame, with his banner being unveiled along the main entrance alongside memorials of athletes that have made their mark across Rekan sports. Late in the game Jad was awarded a corner. The strong defense of Inkopolis justly feared the Rekan national team player’s corner skill and they crowded the box. Janson Atangana faced stiff opposition and shot leftward to score past orange and blue traffic. The narrow victory placed Capital in the next round in what was Capital’s best IFCF showing so far.

Third Preliminary Round
Aleiusia Capital (ZRH) 4-0 De Commons (TSA) (2-0, 2-0)
This was Capital’s second visit to the third round, doing so in the 4th cycle. In order to enter the third qualifying round that year, Capital beat another team from The Sarian known as Bondstad Treason. De Commons for their part faced AK Stanimir in a losing effort during a different IFCF tournament. Is the Federal Republic poison to LegaSaari clubs? Apparently so. Corners were noteworthy for the second round in a row. Jad’s third corner of game one helped Steffanow Kostessen score with his chest. Striker Scwartzhammer got himself on the board in the first half as well with a close range cannon shot. Ahead by two goals, Capital didn’t let up and advanced to the fourth qualifying round thanks to an identical away result. The playoffs awaited. This was the second time a Rekan team had gotten there, and Capital felt confidence they could advance. Of course. there was old saying coined in the villages of Hügeltaldom’s far reaching lands, “Sometimes a reward can be punishing,” Capital were drawn against Freeport United, a team which was so good and from a place so unexpected that some say the IFCF changed its Coëfficient rules just to keep Freeport from being higher than the bigger footballing nations.

Playoff round
Aleiusia Capital (ZRH) 2-4 Freeport United (FPT) (2-3, 0-1)
The big matchup was here. Capital have played against a Hoofball team before. Equestrian side Royal Canterlot HC eliminated Capital in the second Challenger’s Cup. “This is a big step in our campaign”. coach Perlog told RekanSport in an exclusive interview, “The seventeenth best club in the world is visiting, and after that we’ll have to go over to their backyard.” Even with stark odds, Capital’s players were not shaken “A lot of clubs at our level have no experience against any four legged tactics.” veteran defender Janko Yakowić told supporters in an online chat. The former international starter went to to say that he remembered “…all their off beat bucks and little moves. We’re more than ready for a style clash. Normal things exist over there too.”

The first matchup kicked off with a scare as Freeport’s attacking roster almost scored in two minutes. The National Sports Complex was raucous around a half hour into the match when Lysistrata Carter slyly chipped the ball into the net while the box was dense. Freeport got into Capital’s territory a few minutes later to hoof a goal. Entering the second half on even ground, Capital saw their side give up two goals in the span of ten minutes as Freeport pulled away. Tedorow Noske had been brought into the match late, and his twenty minutes of action saw him score by hooking the ball into the far left corner. Down a goal, Capital would need to move aggressively in the return bout.

The away matchup was a “bitter tragedy” according to captain Luka Lukić. The aggressive Freeport team took advantage of transitional woes to score minutes into the second half. Club legend Jad stepped up the plate with two good opportunities from corners being deflected by Freeport's keeper. Coach Perlog gave a calm interview after the defeat. “We’re not ashamed or dishonored,” Perlog said “We came in behind, and kept them from running as wild as their influential supporters would think.” Janko Yakowić was less zealous in defeat than he had been before the matchup, but had another bold prediction for his lifetime club, “Being from a non-legendary country, we are going to fly under some people’s radars. A smart bunch know about us. If the big teams in the Challenger’s Cup don’t get us, they will very soon.”
Challenger’s Cup
Extra Preliminary Round
Sporting Cajelaya (SHR) 3–7 DD Porto Nowi (ZRH) (1–4, 2–3)
DD Porto Nowi made their IFCF after missing two cycles of competition. The domestically popular club from Porto Nowi had never won a game across their six other matches under the IFCF banner. For head coach Riki Schmelling to get off to a good start he needed to buck that trend. Top forward Arnald Gal was sold at the start of the season for 2.5 million. The young firebrand from the national team was replaced by Levi Matthis just before then. Matthis was put into a trial by fire against fellow Esportivan club Sporting Cajelaya. The trial of fire was more like a baptism of milk and honey for Matthis because he scored twice on his debut. Wiktor Nebojsa Dassow, a more senior player for the Porto Nowi side, scored the first and third goals of the game before rolling his ankle. Millanskio Dragonowić came back as a sub for the next match, and while Julian Morillo played beautifully to score twice, Porto Nowi overcame another deficit. A early dribble Zoran Karpow, a Kewić to Krstowić cross, and a late goal from Mateo Tafalla capped off DD Porto Nowi’s first IFCF series victory.

First Preliminary Round
Olympique de Rimouski (QUE) 3–1 Kven FK (ZRH) (2–0, 1–1)
After some poorer runs, Kven aimed to qualify again for the Challenger’s Cup Group Stages. Kven’s first stop was in Quebec. Olympique de Rimouski were title contenders in their homeland last season, but came up short on tiebreakers. Kven won their first title on tiebreakers. Neither side wanted to cut this series close. The cup champions of Quebec did well in their first match up as Johannes Mandi and Hong Joon-Yeong scored in the second half. Želmir Kolarowić had a penalty opportunity when Suzanna Barter was called on a flagrant handball in the penalty area. Kven's captain simply couldn’t misdirect the keeper, and the game was a big loss. The next match saw both sides stand their ground. For new starting center back Gawain Warden the first half was a breakout debut. Kven still needed to score a goal, and did so when Draganić passed back to the big boot of Wladmir Imilić. Another goal would keep Kven alive. Another goal was scored, but it was in favor of Rimouski. Ryan Hawkins and Radu Bartok almost colliding when they failed to save Johannes Mandi goal, the second second goal of the series for the Siovanijan, or was he a Teus? Was he A Rekan? A Hügeltalian?

AC Cutti (OSC) 0–1 DD Porto Nowi (ZRH) (0–1, 0–0)
DD Porto Nowi’s next test in the Challenger’s Cup was AC Cutti. Cutti gave up less than a half goal per matchup in the last domestic campaign. DD Porto Nowi won against the defensive side thanks a goal while away from home. The sole goal of the two matches was from Jakow Krstowić. Krstowić, who had just a few touches in the box, scored from close range, and almost did so against before the final whistle. The scoreless return leg saw regular center back Wuk Koziwier have a falling out with Schmelling a day before the match, resulting in a fist fight. Teenager Yousef Iwanić, a major prospect for club and country, was slotted into the starting line up. While Porto Nowi were aggressive at home they didn’t score. A preexisting defect was fatal for AC Cutti and a high class back line from Porto Nowi blended with Wasim Wladić’s keeping skills to prevent any goals. “Two wins in a row!” Holding midfielder Nikola Branić shouted to reporters after the final whistle that this matchup, or something, was “Fantastic!”

FC Carnoël 84 (GVN) 2–2(ag) Ogroven Vanguardi FK (ZRH) (1–2, 1–0)
Gouvanarch popped into the newsfeeds of dedicated Rekan sports fans when the club’s former player Alfonce Du Thuict was picked up by VZRH Matov-Uri. Former domestic champions FC Carnoël 84 were behind early when Jess Kijanskas scored seven minutes into the opening matchup via a solid close range shot to the far post. A quick equalization effort by Carnoël attacker Carlitis de la Roche was successful. Play was quieter until an over an hour into play when bench player Luka Fucaz won Vanguardi the game. Fucaz was a stater for the next half of the series, but couldn’t get on the scorecard and was replaced by Jaxon Amador. While Carnoël 84 won the second contest, Jean-Claude Boucher’s purple shirted side stayed alive via away goals.

Third Preliminary Round
DD Porto Nowi (ZRH) 2–1 Norrion Rovers (EFL) (1–1, 1–0)
For the second match up, Schemlling prioritized moving his wingbacks up and had the ever capable midfielder Wiktor Nebojsa Dassow supporting them and the forwards. Dassow’s creativity led to an assist. As play went on, Arnald Gal was an adeptly able to poach a goal on the counter. Even with the goals, the match was still not over, as Andrew Ford made great strides towards the goal. Needing fresh legs, veteran Perdrag Josipić was brought in from the bench. Josipić was granted a throw in, and his arms got the ball to greenhorn Zoran Karpow. Karpow dribbled down the line, crossing over. His cross went backward to Dassow, who’s head punched the round ball square in its jaw for a huge goal.

Parsewi Mengwi (PCU) 2–3 Ogroven Vanguardi FK (ZRH) (1–3, 1–0)
Parsewi Mengwi had qualified for the Challenger’s Cup’s preliminaries due to a strong finish two seasons ago that saw the club go from the relegation zone of their league to a fourth place finish in the Kasa League. The newest Pemecutan footballing season couldn’t finish in time for fresh entries, so the club from Mengwi got another chance. The pattern of Rekan clubs winning away from home continued when Zaur-Luka Igorić dominated on the left flank. The young national team starter made two assists, one from a cross and another by cutting in and passing low to backup Rankoslaw Antonijewić, who was returning from a long and toilsome injury saga. In the last round the team from Mengwi won 4-1 on the return leg against Vilitan League side Rammsissil. In response, Jean-Claude Boucher told his men to play their home leg conservatively. Vanguard lost, but had a goal in hand after ninety minutes.

Playoff Round
DD Porto Nowi (ZRH) 0–3 Hoima Warriors (BNJ) (0–3, 0–0)
Clubs from the Shango-Fogoa Basin have a history with Zeta Reka in the Challenger’s Cup. Kven FK had their breakout match against Jinja City FC in the third preliminary round of the third Challenger’s Cup. Kven followed up their away goals triumph with two straight victories against René Skaé. One could say that the use of S-FPL clubs as a stepping stone by Zeta Rekan teams predates the S-PFL itself! The Warriors were unfazed by the Esportivan nation, and scored three goals away. A scoreless draw in Homia finished off DD Porto Nowi’s longest IFCF run. Elimination in the playoff round was nothing to mock, and Porto Nowi’s most popular club could be playing here, or higher, next time.

Ogroven Vanguardi FK (ZRH) 5–4 Istria City FC (BNJ) (1–2, 4–2)
The second ZRH-BNJ matchup was dramatic and not only was subjectively speaking the best fixture of the entire round, but maybe even any qualifying round. At first things seemed simple. Istria City got out ahead first, scoring twice in a row. Quebecois Kate Huitema-Omeasoo collected a goal and an assist. A goal came from Luka Fucaz, but the Vanguardi continued to struggle. With a deficit spilling to the later third of the game, Boucher’s side moved swiftly. At least they tried to move swiftly. A long rolling pass from Anderbrügge found the feet of Fucaz. The humility free national team star Zaur Luka-Igorić ran inside at the tail end the end of injury time. Jess Kijanskas was blocking the keeper’s view while Igorić “scored” from outside. An offside flag came up, and Vanguardi couldn’t get the ball back into the box.

Vanguardi’s away trip to the inner heart of Banija was eventful. Luka Edmundić, who’d yet to score in this IFCF campaign for his new club, body predicted they would win the match by two goals or more. Vanguadi’s shiny new attacking midfielder played a supporting role in the first goal of the match by passing to Jess Kijanskas. The Banijans mirrored their perforce in the first game by scoring twice. The final half of the series would be all important for both sides. A penalty against Xe Xuang was awarded to Kijanskas and they converted their opportunity into a double. Luka Edmundić made his first goal after that and the series could be won out of the blue. Even so, the home team did not quit. Huitema-Omeasoo fired off a shot that dropped jaws, and Vanguardi’s number zero (one was taken) had to lurch to his far post with his fingers extended. The ball was just in reach and moved to the side Voska Avetisyan was at. A strong challenge from Chromatik Bwahi Herron ended the scary attack. Two minutes before injury time Christophe du Mesnil scored his club’s fourth goal of the game from long range. Captain Jan Thimig’s self declared “longest hour” ended in triumph.

Qualifying Round
Ogroven Vanguardi FK (ZRH) 1–3 Tropicorp FC (TUR) (1–3, 0–0)
Elimination was bitter for Vanguardi, who’s backline faced a collapse against Tropicorp. Bits and peices went wrong, but it took the clinical skills of Tropicorp's attack to win the first match. A scoreless draw afterwards was also sour, with fans on social grumbling about Vanguari’s performance, and one blamed the loss on the very existence of twii.tur for reasons unknown to normal society. In more practical terms, Jan Thimig and head coach Jean-Claude Boucher said the same thing when asked about why the series went wrong, “We were outclassed,” Thimig said, Boucher then added that, “the opening matchup was very poor. I must give Igorić credit… That young man impressed in the early season more than normal. He really did so after that flawless cross in the second half.” Vanguardi’s performance was worth 2.5 coëfficients points, the second best Rekan performance this cycle. That best performance was as solid as they come. Tropicrop for their part will getting more free advertising in this recap. The Turori based side were drawn against Capital in the Challenger's Cup group stage.

Former league champs AK Stanimir were able to make up for a distant finish in the IFCF entry hunt by winning the Republic’s Cup. Quebecois coach Moon Tae-Hong continues to lead the side as his five year extension enters its second season. Tae-Hong had exceptions placed on him to improve the side in the league. While the contract hasn’t been released to the public, leaked reported to RekanSport indicates that Tae-Hong can’t fail to enter a streak of IFCF tournaments, and also should consider winning the league at some point. Stanimir’s signings were not a headline grabber. Hypothetical wonder kid Darrius Davidson was snatched up from a club in Eastfield Lodge, and the reserve and youth sides saw some shifts. Most of the club first choices are the same as before, especially in the back third, where Ernestisson was given another season between the goalposts, and aging center back Sam Oronhyatekha remains a starter. Julian Depping avoided playing in the 3D-Com Super Challenge due to an aggravated leg, but doctors cleared him for the opening matches. Much like the backline the Heiden-Petarić-Djokawić attacking trident returns in full force.

The middle of the club’s lineup has shifted in some huge way. Stani Gröss is a national team starter and was procured for a single season in a loan deal with Audioslavian super club 1830 Cathair. The loan was needed as AK Stanimir sold central player Stanimir Rekawić to Coret Hawks in Nephara for a fee of NS$4,000,000. As Rekawić becomes the first Rekan player in the Zenith, Markus Rolfes pivots upwards to aid the attack, while captain Wuk Ninković stays back with Gröss to create plays from deep lying areas. “I’m excited to be here,” Gröss told the world in a video package produced by Stanimir’s PR team. Ninković was please with Rekawić’s replacement, but insisted in an interview that, “The pair are totally different — We haven’t upgraded or downgraded.” Fans of AK Stanimir will want the new Stani to contribute more than the old one. If things don’t go right then DD Porto Nowi will do better, again!

While coaches are not the lynchpin of clubs, they have ben important to both sides so far. As champions of the league, Capital are looking for their third title in four seasons and Janko Perlog’s first title defense at Kven was a success. “Could lighting strike twice for a second time?” Djoko Weljkowić asked in his column before asking, “is that striking for a fourth time?” If Capital rise to new heights, they will rapidly need “Gym Rat” Fenstermacher Scwartzhammer to replace League All XI striker Constantine Koellner. Outside of that, the roster is identical at the top. Without spoiling much, the side has already qualified for the Challenger’s Cup Group stage before the league has properly began. The extra matches, which are “vital” to Capital growth according to leaked minutes from a business meeting, could see some players making less league appearances. The club’s alternative options have been enhanced this season. Former captain David Dix is healthy enough to take up roles in the midfield. While players Noske, Biltmans and Rundström could replace all three forwards in a pinch. Substitute players in defensive roles will need some time to grow, but already Xannerian college standout Mauricio Franklin-Perez has been touted as a full back for the future. Young players will be important, especially in the middle of the field as captain Luka Lukić may call it a career after this season.

Riverside were shockingly knocked out of the capital region’s qualifying tournament last season. Aleiusia’s newest club of notoriety responded by dominating the second division. For this new season, the club is shifting to a 4-4-2 formation this time around. With a roster designed for fluidly, possession is the name of the game, and with a narrow midfield, accurate passing, and great finishes, Riverside were able to get back into the top flight. Width was an issue, as no great attacking option is available on the left flank. Even with a slow attack on the left, teams had issues containing captain Erich Münster on the right. Münster was proving his worth to the side as a maser coordinator, crosser, and attacker. When Münster wasn’t finishing off the attack, Majia Dana, Choi Kyung-Soo were clinical and accurate, and sometimes Nenad Srdjowić was too. This season will be about reestablishing order in the side, and improving further to keep the top flight appearances coming. Of course, with four starters at the age of thirty or above, some pieces are short term. Assuming they finish last, they would have 0.875 league points next season, but anything above fourteenth is a net gain. Riverside also could be equal or better than the current total of the eleventh place team (Sanford Der Berg) by finishing in eighth place or better.

Bergsteiger’s narrowly kept themselves in the top flight during the qualifying tournament in Northern Hügeltaldom. New coach Jurgen Dom was pulled from two divisions down, prompting a look of confusion from Bergsteiger’s football fans. Dom had a speciality however, over-performing in qualifiers. Even if he’d only coached two of his twenty seasons in the top flight, most of his jobs came from taking disorganized sides and boosting them up a rank. Alternatively, he avoids the drop. Bergsteiger line up in a 4-5-1. In practice it’s a flat 4-3-3 that simply forces the left and right forwards to take more strides each game. New signing Iwano Petarić still has spent some time isolated from his partners, needing through balls, sometimes passed from as far back as center back Anubis Zlatkowić. Bergsteiger are a club that develops talent well, so there could plenty of other good helpers on attack and defense who grow over the course of the season. Might they try finishing in a position other than thirteenth this time?

Fans of DD Porto Nowi insist the club is a powerhouse. Too bad readers from he outside world have yet to see them win a league title after they dominated for so many years. Great news came last season, as the club did better than cross town rivals AK Stanimir. Before the season could begin, management shifted. A new corporate power structure within the organization saw the head coach out. New roach Riki Schmelling was a puzzling hire, but was already working for a major club. The side needed to adjust for the absence of not only club star Arnald Gal, who was sold early in the transfer window to a club in Quebec, but also two other forwards. Levi Matthis has an extreme level of fitness compared to a lot of club’s prior options. Seemingly Schmelling will prioritize physical demands, he’s already done so in Challenger’s Cup and the domestic Super Challenge event. With the physical demands here, we wouldn’t be shocked if captain Mateo Tafalla, aged thirty seven, ends up sitting out some matches. On the opposite end of Tafalla are a large number of backups on the side are young, plus nineteen year old starting center back Yousef Iwanić. One final ambitious change was that Schmelling has been using both his VZRH keeper Branislaw Mucić and incumbent number one Wasim Waldić equally. Schmelling categorically denied that the starting role is being fought over, but the press speculates a competition is occurring.

It took until the last day of Division 2 for Finansijskigrade to best Banfigrade and finish third on the table. Earning a spot in the top flight wasn’t super tough for the side from Zeta Reka’s special economic zone of the capital district. The Finansijskigrade formation is fluid and based around progressive possession. As the team moved upwards center back Iwan Lukawić would play like a defensive midfielder, with the keeper coving his spot. The pushing of extra men up front allows Finansijskigrade to crowd the opposition’s third, pass short, full the box, and score using striker Nikoa Palwewić and a forward pivoting Sigmund Gottfried. The pair scored quite a bit in regional qualifying, while the other midfielders were assigned mainly to build up play, as were the wide forwards. One weakness has been a lack of width, but the fullbacks seemed to become less greedy in each game up to the opening of the season, and have begun to play in the right places at the right time. A lack of strong competition means the lineup hasn’t been well tested, and late signings like Pin Carmichael and Noa Schleicher haven’t really had enough minutes yet.

Ofau fans were pleasantly surprised to auto qualify after wilderness years. While the side had to pay off the debt of former rival PRD Ofau, the merger should increase ticket sale at Ofau’s stadium. Stability also came with an investment from Iwan Zoranić, newfound inheritor of the privately owned Zoranić supermarket chain. Duncan Tshibangu was transferred in from Northandryun Rovers in Quebec. The young national team prospect of Quebec and Shingoryeo. In Zeta Reka and Hugeltaldom, Tshibangu will stand out. Without dedicating time to give the full story of Zeta Reka’s racial composition and history, black individuals in Zeta Reka made up less than a percent of the population, with most being at most a few generations removed from their immigrant forefather. Tshibangu is as former national team coach Marko Dusan described him, “One of the league’s first player with a name like his, who’s also black, and a foreigner.” Some controversies pertaining to race have taken place in Zeta Reka’s sporting world, and specifically in football. How will Tshibangu fare? Thus far, the projections are positive. “Cultural sectarianism was something that punched Ofau in the face,” historian Jowana Miroljubić said to a local newspaper that wrote an article on Tshibangu that described the young man’s race as a “statistical uniqueness.” Tshibangu isn’t isolated on the team by any stretch, nor is Olu Osanyinleye, a teammate who’s a second generation Rekan.

While social and cultural topics put Ofau in the headlines, the side’s performance in Super Challenge games put the country’s sporting experts on notice as they won by four goals against Platinastigrade, and then beat the defending champions in a drag race. Even when winning, Ofau has possession for just a few moments it seemed. The attacking front is the same as last year, with the four most forward facing players all returning from last year. The aforementioned Tshibangu will stand near Gerwin Lahmann, who won’t duck down to the defenders as often. The back line hasn’t changed, they were the fourth best last year, and neither Imilo Dakić or Ilija Ilić were playing back far this season. This will shoulder less defensive responsibility onto the center backs and Tshibangu, while keeping numbers as good as before. The fullbacks launching forward to support has been huge when countering in the opposition’s half. With a lower ceiling of four league points, a mid table performance would keep Ofau in the top flight next season. Anything better is more than welcome with the spending spree Zoranić went on in the off season.

Former two time champions Kven FK were close to a third title. The well funded side from a tourist town has continued to qualify for IFCF play, and will need to do so again to keep their controversial public sponsorship. The quest to take back the country will involve interchanges and passing patterns to overload opponents. While also servicing well between the sicks, Radu Bartok will need to get out quick passes to Ryan Hawkins or Jonathan Willis. Once the ball is in the middle third, Willis, Ratmirić and Kolarowić will maneuver around the middle while durable ball playing fullbacks. Once a side of the pitch sees a sharp advance, the opposition will need to watch out for screaming passes to other end. Once up front, five players will maneuver around the lines. Invited wingers will dance with all in one forward Dmitar Draganić while the wingbacks continue to pressure sides with the treat of an interchange. Defensively the side will press hard in order win the ball quickly, and get back to the final stages of offense as quickly as possible. “Nothing here is brand new,” Djoko Weljkowić wrote in his column, “some of this was already seen in the club, or the national team who Kven’s captain also leads… their wing play is more complex than before, and I’d love to see where things go.”

In order to set up the side in a new way, Popowić went out and signed Max-Otto Bergmann to strike as an inverted forward. Gawain Warden was brought in from Stahlburg City to improve shot stopping, and Bartok a friend. Marko Ratmirić has attacking skill, but his box to box abilities as a young man are what gave Kven the inspiration to buy him, his box to box skill will be more than tested at the senior level. Noe every new signing is playing in the first choice roster right away. Azusa Manami, also known as the “Rebel Yell” was picked up for nothing. Manami is from the same lands that brought Iñaki Imabayama to Kven. Imabayama was in rare form every year, but now two candidates for his replacement are on the squad. With a re-fuled roster, and no major concerns, Kven are looking to be contender again, much to the chagrin of footballing traditionalists.

Vanguardi’s been having their best footballing decade ever, but have yet to win the league. This could be the last shot Jean-Claude Boucher has to make it somewhere with the side. Hot signing Luka Edmundić is a player who isn’t going to be contributing much to defense, and so some modification had to be made to Vanguardi’s system. Now there is no official defensive midfielder, as Anderbrügge was trusted to move forward. The back third is unmodified, with national team level players scattered about. Zaur-Luka Igorić and Christophe du Mesnil continue to produce and attack on the flanks, while the Herron-Thimig duo will stop shots. Up front veteran Jaxon Amador has been swapped for Luka Fucaz, who’s mainly played in support, but can sometimes pull rabbits out of a hat. Captain Jan Thimig lost the arm band during the pre season due to growing friction between him and some unnamed members of the roster. One name who was reportedly not backing Thimig was attacker Josip Jorowić, who had no comment when confronted. Since then, the media frenzy has died down.

The Dragons’ upset run to Division 1 captures the uniqueness of Rekan football. The region of Southern Hügeltaldom, known as Ovrâd, has a few teams who try to represent the region’s unique multicultural nature. Ovrâd Dragon’s are one such side and the third largest. The Dragons won the top division of their region’s league, and got a crack at national qualifying. In a tight opening group, a Dragons/FK Ovrâd matchup decided everything. Rade Koxen was able to score from long range in the first half hour, while Linus Ebersberg scored his second goal of the campaign in half number two. During the top group, Ribar bested the Dragons twice, but two wins against Hüelhunde, and at campaign ending 4-0 drumming of Žitarice Union gave the name Ovrâd its first taste of the top flight since season 72.

Long time local league and Division 2 coach Luka Raduljica got to work quickly on finding the proper players to “upgrade” a side which wasn’t expected to finish that well in qualifying. Sud Wlad Simonowić, who Raduljica brought in from his last club, two new starters with connections to VZRH Matov-Uri joined the team. Raduljica once coached the youth side there, but not the two players who joined the Dragons. In addition, Vanguardi backup Franziz Reus was signed with some of the guaranteed TV revenue. “Nobody is expecting a title,” loanee Rudi Baurenhaus told the Ovrâd Report, “but we will win something anyhow.”

After a dramatic back office saga, it seems Wilko Waltz has stabilized his club, but the director of Director of Operations hasn’t been without challenges. Noa Schleicher balked at a benching and pay cut. The midfielder moved to Finansijskigrade after a bidding war with three clubs in the mix. We’re not sure why Waltz hated Schleicher, but the old man might’ve referred to Schleicher a “soft ass.” After walking out of the club two years ago, Helmutow Reich was convinced to return to Platinastigrade as a coach while Mikhail Rhode moved to an advisory role for Waltz. Reich was able to uplift some spirits in the side, and used his local fame to bring in some domestic players like Petar Banfi, Marko Djuradjić, or Manfredak Lange. Mining Corporation money as used to bring it international Randy Kovalchuk. Despite the return of a traditional Platinstigrade coach, the side maintains its diamond shape. “Would you rather have me as the left back?” Happiloper born midfielder Bobby East inquired to a reporter who himself asked about the club’s tactics. Reich said things his way, “The personal who will be here in the long term are all designed for this system, and will play best in it.” How good is best? We may find out soon. The Super Challenge says the best will struggle against top teams.

The Preo Team look to finish in the top five this season after finishing ninth or above in their only other Division 1 appearances. Wladmirwić and Djekić were brought in to improve a scary attack. The offense will also use a double pivot of captain Brankiko Nikowić and Mirko Dragowić to kick off distribution, and the four attackers up front or near it all have scoring potential due to their positional and finishing skills. Wingback Zaid Adja may be older than before, but he’s got a lot of energy, defensive skill, and a mind for how to play in overlap situations. Super sub Muhammed Jankowić has gotten quite a bit of attention in the offseason, but Preo Team kept him through the window. Defense could be an issue again, especially if the side relies on the 4-2-3-1 counter attacking formation they've employed at times.

Ribar slid down last season after winning the cup two years ago. Five new players are first choice, with three being signed this season. Five players are also past heir twenty ninth birthday. The new head coach is Wladmir Gaten, who’s been in and out of the top flight over the last few years, called his owners evil, but is considered a skilled coach. The team’s diamond shape was removed, giving them a different flavor than the other 4-4-2 sides mentioned so far. Needing a winger on the left, Yuri Nowak makes his return to the country after spending time in Sylestone. Zoran Kować was picked after after a long tenure in Ottowić. Otto Marsden was moved up besides Petar Karić. Josip Jowanowić was to start, but he was broke his right leg in two places shortly before the beginning of the season. Captain Oklop Muller was “ashamed” of the preventable injury that was caused by Jowanowić biking away from practice and avoiding a stationary bus. When the team isn’t attacking, new signing Wladmir Zuzkoff and prospect Nikola Slabowić look to mesh with Miliošić and Yakowić and make Ribar a defensive powerhouse.

The Sanford project continues in Hügeltaldom with a dominating start in the regional event. PREMIER lost just once. Finishing that well again isn’t totally impossible, but, they have tougher competition. “Finishing well these next two seasons will put the club on track,” David A. Sanford said in a written statement. “Automatic qualifiers are based off your last three results. First will look better than fourteenth.” Nobody knows what went wrong least season for PREMIER/Der Beg (or is it Sanford?). The team with potential to be the best offensively was somehow the worst. The good news is that the side is livelier and fitter. Young signings were procured for the front and middle thirds to aid an attack lacking in vitality. Trevor Cathburt and Nemanja Wukowić got some fanfare, but that was nothing compared to free agent Annemarie Killirion, who already has Di Brandini Cup experience while playing at the Deprí Seminary. Killirion will be expected to make an impact from the word go, but has yet to debut. Defenders Martin Schoop and former captain Wuk Gröss both left the side, and their replacements are both a decade younger or more. Fellow defender Bernd Schultz will lead the team from the back line. “I’m confident we’ll do much much better, and score better too!” David Sanford told TV-4’s sports commentators in a phone in after a a regional qualifying win against Ruzhan Stassengrade.

Sarkewaka operate in a suburb of Porto Nowi located just north of the city. The scenic Sarkewaka Stadion blends well into the roadway nearby, and is located right near a major train line. That could sink for commuters, but DD Porto Nowi and AK Stanimir fans will enjoy an easy away day. The day will also be easy in the stands, as Sarkewaka’s calm people are not rambunctious in the stands. The team itself might not be easy. The Strikers won the sole qualification slot in Rekadom, and did so with five wins, two draws, and three defeats. Some of the players on the side have recent experience in the top flight, such as Billibad Probst or the very young Daniel Simpson loaned from the western edge of Porto Nowi. The Murpthanian’s youth is contrasted by Filip Draganić and Luka Djordjewić who are both over thirty. Sarkewaka’s only semi-relevant sports team played with two forwards in qualifying. In the league proper it was reported by RekanSport that the Strikers will have a single forward and an extra center back, playing with a low block. They might need the safe playing style, the goalie is a youth product from Vanguardi who has never played at the top senior level before.

With last season one to forget, the VZRH board brought in Kristijan Markowić from the Ottawić okrug as the new head coach. Ottawić, who specialized in dynamic and energetic sides under Markowić, finished in the top half of their group in the Super Challenge with one of the younger sides in the tournament. Since then, veteran Earl Collins from Tikariot has added some age to the locker room. For the most part captain Wukan Radovlawić will still be juggling a side that is under twenty five, and juggle the uses of V’s and W’s in his own name. The new VZRH is a 4-4-2 with forward Axel-Finn Wladowić able to slide back into the midfield depth he was playing at last season. Partner Djurašewić has been in the box as often as possible. The aforementioned Collins was just one of two foreign talents signed shortly before the opening of the season. Constantine Brown, who was applying trade at Nepharan club North Laithland, was scooped up for four million. In addition, Alfonce Du Thuict was signed after his contract with former Gouvanarch champions FC Carnoël 84. With all the fanfare around the Army Men, VZRH only won a single Super Challenge game, and lost badly to an Ofau side that played high and overwhelmed Matov-Uri’s backline.

Wladmir Bogdanić, Filip Wladić, Beginn-Davn captain Aleksi Nowak, Luka Petrosen Danić, Dragoljub Wladić, and Milutin Sergeiwić all retired due to injuies. Skewar Skop became the coach of Platinastigrade’s reserve squad. Walter Gunkil was unable to find a contract in season 78, and chose to retire at thirty nine. Todor Iwanowić, Wladmir Jowić, Luka Petrosen Danić also chose to find something else to do. Twenty years younger than Gunkil is Ovrâd midfielder Ronald Khussger, who quit to pursue a career in law. Many other players chose not to continue looking for work. Iwar Jawoko was the only foreign playing competitor to hang up the boots.

With a third of the season over, Capital and Vanguardi are tied with the best offense and defense respectively. The tie came about after Vanguardi's tenth day victory. Christophe du Mesnil cut inside, and passed to Luka Fucaz who crossed to they club's top scorer, Jess Kijanskas. Capital's only other loss came against third place Porto Nowi who have league scoring leader Jakow Krstowić under contract. Krstowić scored with a long range bomb on the counter that nobody even thinks Krstowić was confident in. In the eight matches where Capital have scored, they have scored an average of four and one eighths goals per game. As mentioned, Vanguardi are even with Capital in terms of points, and are just two goals down on the differential thanks to that awesome defense that gives up a goal every other game. Porto Nowi, VZRH, and Platinastigrade have similar records, but are each worse in both categories. The opposite of FK Finansijskigrade who were in the top eight despite having he second worst defense in the league. Losing by five goals to Capital probably didn't help.

AK Stanimir were touted as title contenders, but have had a rough start with more draws than any other result. Kven FK started the season with a disappointing loss to Capital where Atangana, Carter, and bench player Biltmans all scored in Kven's backyard. Kven mustered up a single win, before Iwano Popowić was deemed unworthy to coach for the side and quickly scooped up by Bergsteiger who got ten points with a higher pace attacking style, and a free roaming Anubis Zlatkowić. Kven were able to get a second and third victory, but lost mach ten and lost starter Wladmir Imilić to a foot injury during the matchup. Below Kven are five teams which have failed to collect ten points. Preo Team's failures see former Kven coach Elias Hammerschmidt out six games into the season. The Dragons and the Strikers were tough to lose against, as Ovrâd Dragons won the sole victory shared by either side, and it was against the Strikers. Sarkewaka Strikers scored five goals at the start of the season, but spent five games in a row with out getting a goal, and now they are on pace to be the worst side in the history of Division 1. At least they are not Ribar PRD, who gave up a penalty against AK Stanimir keeper Björnólfur Ernestisson.

In addition to Imilić being out, Zaur-Luka Igorić hurt his leg muscle while playing in World Cup qualifications, and has to sit our from games eight to twelve. While practicing for the the second game of the season, DD Porto Nowi's number one Wasim Waldić was taken out for the long term thanks to two tendons in his right arm. "This is one of the most ghastly internal breakdowns I have seen in a young man," former team doctor told RekanSport after learned about the extent of the injuries to Waldić's bicep. The sidelining of Waldić puts youth national team starter Branislaw Mucić in the sticks.

Capital continued to soldier on, first pulling head of Vanguardi by winning four games in a row against Vangaurdi's two win two loss record. Capital were leading at the halfway point in the season even after VZRH won with three goals to two. VZRH and DD Porto Nowi were just two draws behind the league leaders. Porto Nowi's five goal smashing of Begsteiger happened thanks to a hat trick from Jakow Krstowić. Even so, Capital continued to win, and the both Porto and Capital won again on day seventeen. On day eighteen, Finansijskigrade got hammered in Porto Nowi's backyard 3-0, and Capital were a goal ahead of Ribar. Otto Marsden scored his third goal of the season by hitting a cross from Yuri Nowak. Vanguardi got behind VZRH after the eighteenth day when Platinasitgrade bested Vanguardi in a tight 4-3 horse race.

With the league tied up, the league's top side faced off at the Energija Rekedom Stadion. Porto Nowi were cut apart in the first half, just holding onto a one goal deficit. Capital had an opportunity at the sixty third minute to double their lead. Shortly after subbing off Lysistrata Carter, Capital were awarded a free kick when backup Wladmir Adamić was shoved around in an unruly fashion. Janson Atangana had enjoyed on free kicks, especially when passing short to Carter. This time a goal attempt was made, and the defensive wall missed the ball. Branislaw Mucić not however, and made a huge kick. The ball flew to its intended target, Jakow Krstowić. Krstowić got past Capital's high line which was still adjusting to the play, and got a goal. The humiliating nature of the loss was followed up by Capital losing late to FK-PRD Ofau, and this put Capital behind in the standings for the first time in weeks.

Bergsteiger under Popowić have gone into a tail spin with eight losses from ten games with Djuras Bartić out five games in a row with foot trouble. Bartić scored on his return against Sanford Der Berg PREMIER, but his presence was missed. Sarkewaka Strikers won their first game of the season with a brand new coach, who had collected two points for the side already. Ovrâd maintain a one goal lead in the wooden spoon race thanks to scoring three goals in the second half at the home of Finansijskigrade. Kven flirted with the basement at the start of the season, but have pushed into ninth place, and are only five points out of fifth place. Riverside are still near the bottom, their head coach gone, the Dragons are underground, and the Striker's ended up digging a hole straight to outer space.

The furloughs of Imilić and Igorić ended in successful recoveries for the clubs. Ribar saw Stanko Yakowić miss out from matches thirteen to nineteen. Yakowić going down is an all too familiar event for the Baptism of Fire silver medalist, who has simply declined. Capital needed to stay sharp as well as their player continued in the IFCF Challenger's Cup.

The title race is about to heat up, with three teams who can take the title. Despite awe inspiring performances and a ten goal victory, Capital are still scrapping for the title and will need to win more the DD Porto Nowi. After a shocking loss to FK-PRD Ofau, Poro Nowi were unable to take the lead when neither rival won a match. VZRH wee looking for a huge win to be within a victory of the lead, but Stojan Heiden's double dashed the army men's dream scenario. Plan b for VZRH will involve knocking Capital out on the final matchday and winning every game along the way. Why not hope? VZRH already beat Capital on the fifteenth week of the season. A snag might come to them as defender Djoko Želmirić has to bow out of the next three games due to a ruptured soleus. Vanguardi are just short for the league trophy, but are competing in a five team mosh pit for the final slots in the Challenger's Cup. Five teams are all within four points of each other with three games to play and two slots to win. Kven need to finish in the top five in order to maintain their sweetheart deal with the tourism board of Zeta Reka. For Ofau, this could be their breakout season after some rough seasons. Behind those three are AK Stanimir and Sanford Der Berg PREMIER. The two clubs are not long shots by any means, but will need to be at their best to sneak into the top five.

Platinastigrade had some horrible games They have gone winless since game eighteen, and lost by eight goals to Capital when Scwarzhammer scored four goals in a single game. Before the 10-2 game, coach Helmutow Reich was removed from his duties, while reports are that the Director of Operations was fired, though he maintains he quit after the loss. Since he was not responsible for the eight goal deficit, the interim leadership quickly rehired Reich after the loss to Bergsteiger. The Strikers got more wins in the last set of games, defeating Finansijskigrade by... three goals? How?

All three title contenders won their games, and their rivals could not hold a lead. Capital made history when Scwartzhammer scored With two title contenders facing off on the final day, some would say DD Porto Nowi have the easiest schedule, sans that derby game against Stanimir. With the last match being a ten goal thriller, with three lead changes, fans in the city of Porto Nowi are expecting the best from the game. Ofau snuck into fitth place as Kven's loss dropped them into seventh. All teams from before were still eligible for the top five, and even the top four. In all likelihood, Vguardi or Ofau will finish fourth, but the battle for fifth is as tight as ever. Kven and Sanford will each face off, looking to hit fifty points. Vanguardi's schedules sees them play Ribar, and then look to avenge a one goal loss to Ofau. Stanimir have a tough match against cross town rivals DD Porto Nowi.

With two realistic contenders for the title, the championship hangs in a tricky balance. Theoretically, VZRH could have still won the title, they'd just had to close a 34 goal difference gap when they face Capital at the National Sports Complex. DD Porto Nowi were realistic contenders, facing a woeful and pitied Platinastgrade team. Porto Nowi had the lead for most of their last game, and are highly confident in scoring the title for the first time six seasons. Vanguardi locked up a top five slot when they shut down Ribar for the second time this season. The final slot in the Challenger's Cup is now contested among two teams. FK-PRD Ofau narrowly bested the Preo Team, keeping them a game ahead of Kven. Both sides have home games, and while Kven has the easy opponent Ofau only need a single point. Platinastigrade also lost again. The mining corporation is humiliated, but what's left of the footballing administration of the company is looking to get past Finansijskigrade. For teams like Sanford and AK Stanimir, the final game will be all about bragging rights.

With ninety minutes to play, Capital used very few of them to take the lead when Hermann Hamppe made his sixth goal in the season thanks to a solid pass from across the field. DD Porto Nowi also had a one goal lead over Platinastigrade thanks to Mateo Tafalla, "the fine wine." Word got back to back to both camps, and reportedly it was Capital who were most displeased. Coach Perlog addressed and confirmed the rumors a day after the games, "we were worried we could draw," Perlog said online, "We needed to win if they were winning, and we didn't lead with comfort at any point in the game." In the second half, Porto Nowi could be be bested thanks to a pair of goals from Jakow Krstowić. Capital had a potential goal scoring play ended thanks to an offside call, and in the end VZRH couldn't be scored against in the second half. The Army Men playing in defense needed not to worry about a cup final, or feel sore wounds from a Challenger's Cup defeat, they need only focus on destroying their enemy there and then. The match's and the league's result hinged on Capital's defenders, and the Matov-Uri's attackers. Passion spilled onto the pitch as three players a side were booked. As the game went close to injury time, a tepid feeling washed over the crowd. Was it possible for Capital to not win? Young rookie Matko Bakowski made his try. Bakowski, a benchwarmer all season for VZRH, made a rare cross. Matov-Uri's top football side isn't set up for plays like this, but the youthful inspiration looked promising for a second, as Axel-Finn Wladowić dove with his head. Capital keeper Earl Wilson wasn't fazed, and caught the ball before getting it quickly to center back. No further chances came for either side after seven minutes of injury time. The red and yellow had defended their crown.

In the Challenger's Cup race, the superior team had an inferior result, but Ofau only needed a point. Things were touch and go, as at one point Ofau were down a goal as Kven led 3-0. Kven fans were shocked at first that the Strikers scored a goal within the first hour of play, then another whizzed past when Wulfgang Danneberg bested two men. Ofau still needed to draw, and took advantage of a rash of small injuries to Vanguardi's right and center. One center back, Thimig, along with midfielder Antonijewić were out. Vanguardi's goals had come from set peices, and they played carefully without a full unit. After chipping away all game, Iwan Yurić, who had already scored in the first fifteen minutes on a wild series of passes, carefully danced around midfielder Nenad Waltow. With Waltow behind, Yurić was able to move the ball well, making Werisokić worry about a shot that didn't come. In a split second, Yurić got the ball to Hans Palve, who scored. Vanguardi tried to anchor their final volleys to Jess Kijanskas. Kijanskas was looking for a hat trick, but came up short. The draw also meant Ofau has the points needed to go from seventh to fifth. "The IFCF Club had a great new associate," Kven's rivals Ribar PRD told the world on social media.

It was a tight race, but Scwartzhammer's big games gave him an extra goal over Kolarowić and Krstowić. The top team in the league. Capital for their part got three slots in the top ten, technically top twelve by number of goals, and Capital had five players score a double digit total. Capital's five was only challenged by Vanguardi's four. Defender Steffanow Kostessen of Capital was only back of any description to score ten goals. AK Stanimir, Aleiusia Capital, Bergsteiger FK, DD Porto Nowi, FK Finansijskigrade, FK-PRD Ofau, Kven FK, Ogroven Vanguardi FK, Ovrâd Dragons, Platinastigrade, Preo Team, Sanford Der Berg PREMIER, and VZRH Matov-Uri all had players who hit the double digit mark. Four youth reservists were able to score goals during the season, three of which were from top five clubs, and all of them played in a top youth division this season.

Beestagrade were leading for a majority of the season, but after being up ten points after twenty one games, they fell and fell, scoring just ten points before a last gameday victory against Porto Nowi OR which handed the division to AFK Imperialismus and top scoring target man Stajkwon Hokwok. For AFK Imperialismus, this is their third second division title, and they are the second winningest club after Striped Kits and their four Division Two Vases. Hokowk's twenty two goals were five ahead of the next two men, Luka Slawio of Beesagrade, and Iwan Bartsch of Žitarice Union. Title contenders Porto Nowi OR were leading on the final day, but third will suffice, everyone was guaranteed Liga B spots to begin with. "We're all looking to the next season," Porto Nowi OR head coach Gabrijel Dimitrijewić told the Aleiusia Star in an article about Imperialismus and their championship winning season.
