In light of the upcoming 2018 Fifa World Cup, the Footy Freaks 2.0 team consisting of Anthony Wang (myself), Ayush Parikh, Pratik Mishra, Montagu James, Yared Tadesse, Nirmal Prakash, Peter Torres, and Nick Rommel are proud to announce the production of the Football Is Forking Awesome Set (FIFAS). The set will be finished and read before the start of the 2018 World Cup (June 14, 2018), more details to come. We plan to have 10 packets, each with 20 power marked questions + respective 3 part bonuses. Tossups should all be around 6 to 7 lines in 12 point Times New Roman and the bonuses will not exceed 8 lines total.

The Distribution of the Set will generally be as follows (crossover’s + may vary slightly):
  • 9 International Soccer
    • 3 World Cup
      3 Euros
      3 Others
    9 Club
    • 3 EPL
      1 La Liga
      1 Bundesliga
      1 Ligue 1
      1 Serie A
      2 Others
    2 Soccer History
    • 1 Players
      1 Events
1 Soccer "Moment"
1 Misc

We plan to host a side event at either 2018 HSNCT or PACE, perhaps even both. Likely to have online readings as well. The set can be played for free of charge at all mirrors.

Also Shoutout to the “we are better than /a/” group, writing the WEEABOOS set, for usage of its announcement template.

2 Soccer History
Does this mean that the other 18/18 will all be current, with nothing historical?

There will be a mix of current and historical questions/facts, just 2 specific questions set aside for history.

Inspired by your soccer packets written for Festivus a couple years back :)

Hey, are there any updates on this? I'd be super excited for it if it's still happening.

Yeah, we are a bit behind in the writing but we do plan to at least have a packet or two written by June.

Do you plan on writing all 10 packets eventually, or will the tournament be shorter?

Will this be hosted as a side event at HSNCT? This would be possibly my favorite event of all time.

What happened to this? I've never anticipated a set more than this one.

Apologies on behalf of the team - people got busy so we currently only have enough questions for a 20 tossup packet. Am down to read them over the Quiz Bowl discord whenever is a good time.

Someday, I may be disciplined enough to produce a soccer history set. But that day is not today.

Is this happening anytime soon?
