Digimon VS Pokemon Soccer match 2013!

It's the time you've all been waiting for! (Most of this copy pasta'd from DigitalHoppers epic post last year because it was made of win) Here's a link to last years match
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rv3XtIVrTB0

So for those who are new to the AnimeNext world I will briefly explain what this event is. For the past three years now fans of the series Digimon and Pokemon have come together each Sunday of AnimeNext to play soccer. Generally there is a short photoshoot before the game start, and a half-time for players to recover and such.

The location for the game is at the field behind the Doubletree, by the lake.





Time/When: 1:30PM on Sunday.
Where: The field by the Red Dock, behind the Double Tree.


There will be a team captain for each side.

Volunteers are needed for the game! To keep things fair we will assign goal watchers, we also need people to line the lake side so we don't have any ball-related mishaps.



---

These are the basic rules, compiled by Hina, or Hikari/Kari whose run the match for the past two years and hopefully doesn't mind I started up the thread ;;

RULE 1: Only Pokemon or Digimon cosplayers may actively participate in the soccer game.

Non-’mon cosplayers are more than welcome to watch from the sidelines and cheer for their favorite sides, but only those in the appropriate cosplay will be allowed to play.


RULE 2: No ‘mon cosplayer will be denied.

If your cosplay is series-appropriate and you want in, you’re in. All ‘mon cosplayers that wish to play will be given a fair chance to show their stuff.

In addition, those who will be required to remove parts of their cosplay (such as Ginjinkas) for convenience will be allowed as long as they are still somewhat recognizable.


RULE 3: No props on the field.

For safety reasons, mostly. If it’s small and securely attached to your person, it’ll probably be okay, but nothing that could risk injuring yourself or another player in the heat of “battle.” We also recommend setting aside anything you’re worried will get damaged. Remember, this IS for fun...but some of the players will be real competitors. Shins were bruised last year.

I should also hope this goes without saying, but no THROWING props, either. I’m mostly looking at you, Poke-peeps. There will be no pokeball attacks. Same goes to the wielders of the digivices or D3s or D-terminals or D-tectors or whatever the heck your respective season is calling it. (And no throwing trading cards, Season 3!)


RULE 4: Only seven players (six plus goalie) per team allowed on the field at a time.

This is to avoid the chaos that nearly erupted last year when we started off with everyone and their partners at once. There will be regular rotations of players, so that everyone gets their chance, but no “summoning” or any gimmicks if there are already enough people.

*May be subject to change depending upon playing field conditions.


RULE 5: The game will consist of four 15-minute quarters.

It gets hot out there. REALLY hot. I nearly passed out from heat exhaustion more than once last year, and I'm just the referee. Breaking it up into set time-frames will make it easier on everyone.

Actual game rules will basically follow those of a regular soccer game. If you are unfamiliar with them, please ask ahead of time.


RULE 6: Anyone who shows excessive aggressive behavior, disregard for safety, and/or negativity towards other players on or off the field will be asked to leave.

We don’t mind a little smack-talk between friendly rivals--that’s half the fun, after all--but keep in mind that it’s just a GAME. We want to keep things fun, not hostile.

Fortunately, this has yet to really be an issue...but just in case.


RULE 7: Captains and Goal-Watchers will be assigned prior to the start of the game.

The responsibilities of the captains are to make decisions regarding playing strategy, direct player switch-outs, and call time-outs for injury, cosplay mishap, or anytime in-between plays. They do NOT have to be on the field at all times, and must be willing to show fairness to ALL team members regardless of ability or personal preference.

Goal Watchers are exactly what they sound like: people who are assigned to determine if a goal is good or not. To assure fairness, there will be one member from either team assigned to each goal.

They are also there to make sure that the players do not crowd the goalie.


RULE 8: Do not crowd the goalie.

RULE 9: If there is no clear winner by the end of the fourth quarter, the match will be declared a Draw.


There's water and normally an epic halftime show, so come one come all and join the fun!

Totally late to my own event, as usual. Go me.

I have the large goals from last year, so we most likely won't need goal waters.

I'm also wondering if somebody can make a giant PLEASE PICK UP YOUR GARBAGE sign just in case because, while it was better last year, there are still people who I know were there for the event that left trash everywhere. I'm not your mother, and I'm not picking up after you, but I would really REALLY like to be able to keep this (unofficial) event going for future ANexts.

Also, just a quick mention that we always do a mini-photoshoot before the game so pictures can be taken pre-sweating and running around in the heat.

Also-also, I feel like we should start off the game this year with the National Anthem/Pokemon Theme/Digimon Theme. Anybody down for that?


As always, feel free to come find me throughout the weekend if you have quesitons. I'll either be running around as Black Canary or Zatanna Zatara, like last year, and will only be in Cheerleader!Kari for the even that Sunday.

Hope it's okay if I post a link to the Pokemon photoshoot here.

http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=311163

It will be on Sunday so maybe everyone can have a photoshoot before getting all sweaty from the soccer game.

Sorry Digimon folks, it's a Pokemon photoshoot.

We always have a group shoot right before the match anyway, I figure you guys can do your shoot, then we do the game shoots then start play!

I'll be returning this year for the Digimon team!! (I was Takato last year)

Me and my friend bluucircles will be joining as soccer Ken and Davis. So you can bet we'll have a good chance at winning this year
