What is SFA?

Sweet FA is social fantasy football league based around the Qooty footy simulator.

Twelve teams compete in two seasons each calendar year in a home-and-away format with finals, similar to AFL. Each week, teams engage with their opponents in the baattle of wits in dedicated match threads until the game is posted on each Sunday. Players can also get involved in media or other representative competitions played.

What is Qooty?

Qooty is a computer-simulated football game brought to Big Footya by Mobbs. Two teams of 20 players, 18 on field + 2 interchange, are entered into the sim and a football match is played through a series of random events. Commentary and stats are generated by the sim, which are posted in the match thread each Sunday during the season.

How do I get involved?

Fill in the sign up form below, choose a team and away you go. Your captain will put you in the team and the sim will do the rest. There is no requirement to participate in match threads however participation is encouraged and is often used to 'reward' players with better positions.

Why should I get involved?


Sweet FA offers a different experience on Big Footy to the main/club boards while staying true to its football core. This community has been existence nearly as long as Big Footy itself and over 250 posters participate each season. The league has a strong fantasy element with its own history, awards, media, characters and stories. Match threads typically resemble random discussion threads that you would find on club boards.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to do anything?

Once signed up, all you need to do is show up week by week and, alongside your teammates, banter with the opposition. You may also choose to get involved in league media and volunteer roles.

Ok, so I read the above description and read some of the threads on the board, but I still don't really 'get' it.

For a more detailed description of the Sweet FA Concept, read the "Sweet FA Explained" thread in the useful links section below. You can also ask your captain, fellow teammates for help understanding it.

If you still don't understand, don't worry, that comes with time.

So it is a banter board, does that mean anything goes?

No. The Sweet FA is fairly lenient in terms of banter, sledging and insults compared to the majority of the board, but there is still a line, if you cross that line, you will face consequences from the board moderators (Anything from a warning to bans) and possibly even league Administration (Missed matches, ineligibility from awards)

Things that are particularly frowned upon here:

  • Any type of hate speech (Slurs regarding gender, race, sexuality etc) regardless of whether you are joking or not
  • Over the top smut, suggestive images or gifs
  • Mod abuse/ criticism
  • Personal attacks not directed at a posters persona, but the person behind that persona.

For more details, please have a read of the board rules:


You can also PM the board moderators if unsure of anything:

It sounds fun, but I don't have the time to commit, is it a big commitment?

It is really what you make it. Some post a lot in match threads, get involved in media and volunteer, others are happy posting 3-4 times a week. It is up to you how much time you choose to put into it. At the end at the day, it's about the fun and no one will hold it against you if you cannot be extremely active.

How does the "simulator" work?

The sim randomly generates match commentary and and statistics for each game.

An example of commentary:



an example of statistics generated:



Is the simulator random?

Yes, it is 100% random.

Do I have to be around when the match is being posted?

It is part of the experience and the fun, but if you cannot be around, don't stress. You can always catch up later.

Feel free to sign up and enjoy the league with all the other BigFooty posters! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask them in this thread.

If you're serious about qooty, join the team on zero qooty games.

I didn’t join yet still hold the record for being the first player to score for the OOBs.

My name will be placed on an Honour Board somewhere. Maybe a statue in the hallowed grounds would be a more appropriate tribute. Either way, that record will stand forever.
