The Ultimate Football Crest Tournament: Europe vs Rest of the World

Hello! To celebrate the renewal of soccer leagues across the entire globe, I’ve decided to run my next installment of The Ultimate Tournament with that in mind. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is
The Ultimate Football Crest Tournament:
Europe vs Rest of the World



The concept for this competition is that you choose your favorite looking football crest based on aesthetics, story or any other X-factor. Simply thinking it’s pretty, cool or even pretty cool is more than enough. This contest doesn’t require you to know anything about the Beautiful Game whatsoever. Literally anyone can take part in this... so please do!

The opening round is going to feature all Europe vs Rest of the World ties. From then on out it will be an open and random draw. If you would like to nominate a few favorites for this then have a look right here on the nominations thread. When I have the required numbers, we will rock on. I hope you all enjoy it!

Nearly ready...

The line up of teams are all in the hat folks. We have a whopping 128 clubs from 61 countries ready to enter this bad boy. I have decided that instead of straight knockout from the off, I'm gonna do a group stage and then it'll be one on one matches thereafter. Each group will have 4 teams in it, 2 from Europe and 2 from Rest of the World. Top two from each group will progress to the Knockout Stage.

Who's excited?

This is a tournament that has my undivided attention. May the best (and by best I mean the most obscene, garish monstrosity) crest win.

The Rules!

First group will be up within ten minutes! I have a massive 32 groups for the initial stage. Each group contains 4 team crests, 2 from Europe and 2 from Rest of the World. You simply state which two are your favorites from each group.

Reasons are strongly encouraged for your choices and will be used as tie-breakers should they arise. Groups will have a time limit of 30 minutes.

Choose 1 from the 4 is it?

I choose Pago Youth. Look at it. It looks like some fabled Football team from a movie about tough guy footballers. That's my choice. Go Eagles!
