The FJGD board's premier association football competition is back for another season! With the excitement of the Euros leading straight into club European games and kits being released left right and centre, now is the perfect time to kick off the 2021 season of FLO.
FOOTBALL LEAGUE of OCEANIA
FOOTBALL LEAGUE of OCEANIA
As with (some) previous seasons, FLO will be two competitions, a league and a cup.
The League will feature a maximum of 16 teams and will be a straight single round robin. As with previous years, it'll be 1 goal for every 5 votes, so 6-4 is a 1-0 victory, but 8-6 is a 1-1 draw. The league will have a finals series after the final round.
If we receive more than 16 entrants, qualifying will take place to determine the 16 that enter. Traditionally the top 4 from the previous season will skip qualifying, and it will be no different here as the Semi-Finalists from last season's FLO League will gain an automatic league place if they choose to enter this season (The Cheesecake Rubber Arm fancyscum El_Scorcho )
The Cup will be a straight knockout competition utilising a specific cup kit, and as per previous seasons, entrants are permitted to enter a second, separate team into the Cup only. The more teams we have in the cup, the merrier. In previous seasons i've required a league entry if you want to enter the cup, but this season you can just submit 1 cup kit and skip the league if you don't have the time or interest to do 3 kits.
As per the rule introduced last season, I will allow redesigning to occur during this competition at 2 specific stages, which i'll refer to as "Transfer Windows". The cutoff for the first transfer window is prior to round 2. The cutoff for the 2nd transfer window will be prior to round 10, which will coincide with the quarter finals of the Cup. No crossover of kits will be allowed between the cup and the league during transfer windows.
Entrants will be required create the branding for a football club based in Australia or New Zealand. I don't care if people share locations or colours, it's soccer. You will enter 3 kits, each as separate images. A Home kit, an away kit that will be worn in every away game unless it causes a clash, and a cup kit specifically for the cup. Also required is a club logo, which must be fully designed by the entrant.
All kits will feature the FLO logo (which can be recoloured) on both sleeves, a sponsor across the chest, a club logo and a manufacturer's logo in an orientation of the designer's choosing. The number font for the league will once again be Big Noodle Titling. Stars above the club logo are permitted in both the league and the cup for each title a designer has won in the competition in which the kit is competing.

In terms of presentation, like last season, entrants are ONLY required to display the front of the shirt in their presentation, but may display as much or as little of the rest of the uniform including shorts and socks as they like.
Given there is qualifying, there is no bidding process as such, but use this thread for team announcements, questions and discussion.
Entries are due by 11.59pm Adelaide time, Sunday the 22nd of August 2021, to be uploaded to an image hosting site like imgur and the URL link in code tags forwarded to me via PM. Please don't just upload images to bigfooty and send them, it makes everything a lot more difficult.
