    Season 5 - The Academy

    The Academy series will kick off in the next few weeks and it looks as though we have managers for every team now!
    The Outline is as follows

    14 teams

    Each team will play each other in 1d and 4d

    Rookies will be guaranteed a minimum of 7 games each

    Teams will be based in various cities around the world, including Cairo, Olso,
    Berlin to name a few.

    Academy managers will have the same control over sides as normal managers do, just without a draft and trading

    Academy managers will be contacted in the next 48 hours to confirm their teams.

    if anyone needs more info let me know..

    cheers
    Simon and the WCC Board

    South America isnt on WCC's hit list at the moment. We are looking to expand the game in european, asian and north american places that we feel we can establish a strong hold....
    A few more Asian sides just missed out on a team this time round and we went with Cairo and Oslo instead...

    I feel sorry for Kenya. I thought Nairobi would be a big chance for the academy.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Nothing of the sort. You just picked cities that have hosted the Olympics, pretty lazy Simon, only effort you put in was finding out where Denver is...
