Welcome to Dice Football

 
To begin, the first season of Dice Football will contain 12 teams with the bottom two teams being relegated. If the league is successful, there is scope to introduce a second division for Season 2.

The league will run on a European League structure and scoring (2 games vs each opponent, home and away / 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss). The team with the most points at the end of the season will be declared League Champion (should points be level, a playoff will determine vital positions, not goal difference). The lowest two teams will be relegated.

When fixtures are posted (approximately once every 7-10 days), players will have roughly two/three days to submit a strategy for their match(es) (best to do it via DM @diceftbl or comment on the post).

The following are the 12 teams set to compete in the first season of the Dice Football.

It of course stands to reason that the more a team shoots from inside the opposition area (closer to goal) and can stop their opponent from doing so in their own penalty box (force them further from goal) – they are likely to do well over a league season and win plenty of points; and the suggestion from the numbers backs that up.
