|HUGE SNACKS to @ayligerwolf for the graphic :D|
For everyone else, welcome to one of possibly THE MOST RIDICULOUS ideas I've had for some time.
|Tournament Mascot of WIN :D|
With Garrosh behind bars, Azeroth has come together in an unprecedented show of unity, and has decided to invite participants from all over the planet (and beyond) to take part in a game of skill, dexterity and hammering leather balls at tiny goals. Race, gender and creed are irrelevant, this is a game where EVERYONE can take part and participate, either Alliance or Horde. The World of Warcraft has united under its many and various Reputation Banners, and the top thirty-two have already been through an exhaustive (and at times quite dangerous) set of World Cup of Azeroth Qualifiers. The remaining 'teams' will begin playing for the newly created title of Azeroth's Top Footballers starting on Thursday, June 12th.
The 'teams' that made it through to the final draw are as follows:
Stormwind (Tournament Hosts)
Knights of the Ebon Blade
Sons of Hodir
Brood of Nozdormu
The Official Draw for the Group Stages of the 2014 World Cup of Azeroth will take place on Wednesday, June 11th and we will bring it to you here as soon as it is completed. We'll also provide details on how you can affect the outcome of EVERY GAME PLAYED by voting for your favourite team using Twitter and Facebook.
In the meantime it is time to pick your favourite for the Tournament. We'll be revealing more details as we wind up to proceedings proper, plus there's a good chance we'll sort out some ACTUAL PRIZES for lucky people taking part :D
WATCH THIS SPACE!
