Jenna Raven Cup/Women's World Cup Discussion Thread

Postby Sarzonia » Wed May 26, 2021 12:28 pm

[Host note: We now have 24 countries signed up including puppets. I'm closing sign-ups UNLESS we get a new main nation, in which case I would drop Sarzoclava. Otherwise, we'll run with 24.]

The world of women's football has not gotten nearly the attention in the multiverse of other competitions such as the World Cup, the Cup of Harmony, the DiBradini Cup, or other such competitions with a rich tradition. Fully realising that women are often integrated into men's teams or comprise some of the better teams in international football, the Incorporated Sarzonian Government believes there is still fertile ground for women to take centre stage on the footballing pitch.

Sarzonia's Incorporated Football Federation seeks to change the lack of competition suited mainly to women. That's why we have chosen to inaugurate the inaugural Jenna Raven Cup, though we hope it also earns sanction, be it formal or otherwise as the 14th edition of the Women's World Cup. Our own women's national team managed by Brenda Allison bravely fought in the third edition of the Wonder Cup in Qasden and captured the trophy despite being the seventh of eight seeds in the Dawn bracket. We believe in providing an opportunity for other women's teams to shine.

Therefore, we are inviting the teams in the footballing multiverse to compete in this event. We would cordially welcome all of you to Sarzonia to ply your trades and take home the Lovennce Butler Trophy as champions of the Jenna Raven Cup!

OOC notes:

Anaia
Any nation from the Anaia Region who seeks to compete in this tournament will have to ICly submit a request to the Sarzonian Department of External Affairs two IC weeks ahead of the competition to obtain a sport waiver to compete in the tournament. OOCly, if you want to sign up for it and you are in Anaia, for the purposes of moving this along, I can assume that your government or football governing body or whatever has already submitted the paperwork and External Affairs has approved it. It can give us an avenue to explore RP angles that aren't already covered in the World Cup or in the relevant thread in International Incidents.

Puppets Rule
Unless specifically authorised by me (or asked for in the event we need to make numbers), please limit participation to one nation per RL player. In other words, unless you're RPing with a puppet (for instance, Banija chooses to send Silver Beach or Busoga Isles instead of their main), please send your main nation ONLY. If we do open up to puppets, users may only submit ONE puppet nation, which must announce PUBLICLY in the sign-up thread which nation it's a puppet of. The main nation then would have to confirm the puppet's status as a puppet in keeping with the newly clarified protocols regarding NS Sport puppets.

'Women's World Cup'
In Sarzonian parlance, the Weaker Sex World Cup co-hosted by Delaclava is also known as the 13th Women's World Cup, so we have designated this competition as the 14th Women's World Cup in keeping with the DiBradini Cup's tradition of also being known as the Under 21 World Cup. As far as matriarchal nations where women are considered the stronger gender, there will be an allowance for any women's teams representing said nations who choose to compete. Please indicate in your sign-up post if your nation fits this caveat and you are requesting said accommodation. [Yes, Cassadaigua, you would be given a slight bonus for women being the stronger sex in your country.]

Interest/Sign-Ups title
Since there is sufficient interest in enough players with or without the two who have inquired about timing, I've edited the title to reflect on my intent to operate this tournament now that we have at least enough to create a meaningful tournament.

Also, any genderfluid or non-binary players are also welcome to compete. We just request that you designate such players in your rosters.

I'm in depending on when it'll be held. If it's being held at the same time as the CoH, then I'm afraid I won't have the time to RP this tournament. If it's being held afterwards, however, then it'd be simply unthinkable to hold a Women's World Cup without names like Melissa Carey, Alice Carroll, and Alyssa Longfield in it.

When the world was shocked that the Technology Barrier to 2100 was broken in 2010, the world thrived. One Pacific Country, the Marshall Islands, took this to another new level. They had reformed due to difficulties in their past government, and now they are the Pacific Powerhouse. However, the explosion in the discovery of technology made a rift in the timeline, causing everything to go blank.

This is my first time competing in an all women's tournament, so I'm curious about the above.

RL comparisons: Thailand and Indonesia are both male orientated societies where women are treated not as well, however, the men's football teams from these countries are totally shite. Never ever qualified for the world cup finals. Yet, the Thai women's team did qualify for their last world cup.

Japan is also a male dominated society. I saw a news report TODAY that Japanese girls require a higher entrance score than boys for some schools. In the same report, some schools manipulate the exam results in order to exclude girls. Let's take a look at the Japanese football teams: men's team are not bad, round of 16 is their best world cup finish. Now the women's team: champions in 2011 and runners up in 2015.

My point is that having a society that is dominated by one gender doesn't equate to better sporting prowess. If anything, the opposite is probably more likely as the Japanese, Thai, Indonesian (etc.) women have more to prove.

Screw that, i am RPing this. Along with the CoH if it is hosted at the same time.

First time multi RPing so gimme some good luck.
Don't worry i will also post in the RP thread once the tournament starts.
