Leading into the new nwsl season (lucky number three…) I thought I’d put together some numbers to get everyone in the mood. If you’re in the Seattle area don’t forget to pick up some tickets to see the Reign. Half season packages are now on sale via their site.
I drew an infographic merging my favorite soccer team with the Game of Thrones style universe. The story of Seattle Reign FC of the NWSL has been inserted into a medieval setting and turned into an infographic. Why? Because I can. So I did.
The Third Age of Heroes | The Nine Kingdoms | Starfire | Mt. Regniere | Portlandia | Animal Companion | Battle of Jeld-Wen Hall | Domka’s Duel | Muddy York / Battle of Muddy York | The Reserves War | The Queen’s Army | The First Battle of Cascadia
Update: I made an animated gif of the “Campaigns” for the tumblr version. It’s rough, but now I have a lot of ideas for other things. So that’s dangerous. >:D
Since this wasn’t the first attempt at a league I became interested in looking back at the two previous attempts and comparing the three. I finished this before a lot of the details on the new league were clear, but the cap, NT funded players, and college draft had taken place. Along with a brief comparison I noted what each league saw was important in their success strategy (corporate support, social media, etc) and touched on what their fatal flaw ultimately was.
My first reaction is: So much money squandered! I feel like we could get that to go much further these days.
