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.

As previously mentioned; each team gets a certain number of goalscoring opportunities per game, decided by their seeding. The 12 Dice Football teams have been randomly drawn into four different seeding, three teams at each level.

Top seeds: 9 chances per match
Defour Defour Detwo FC
AFC Naranjito
FC Bosteros

Second seeds: 8 chances per match
The Hurricanes
Bits and Bytes FC

Third seeds: 7 chances per match
Willian’s Wish Wellingtons
Teenage Muntant Ninja Skrtels
Maverick FC

Bottom seeds: 6 chances per match
Is Everyone Else Pretending They Understand The Rules XI

The teams at the top *should* be looking to win the title, whereas everyone at the bottom should prioritise safety from relegation above all else.

Good luck for the season ahead!
