This is the last week of the 2nd EVPA Season and we are very proud to be so filled with amazing events, matches, super finals etc. Not a day will pass without a verdict, a big match to be played: we start today and tomorrow with the 4th EVPA Cup, our night event that we will start to reserve for teams that dint play yet enough european matches, a sort of "european taste" in anticipation of the full Season: I recommend all the partecipants of tonight event to be in time for their match, and to add their opponent captains: DiegoZap will be online on Origin for any problems and this is a good occasion for many of you to test our captains panels to properly report the matches. We will give the usual 15 minutes late allowed, not a minute more, as we remember you that respect of the opponent's time is one of our basic principles here in EVPA. On Thursday 13 we'll have the two Euroleague finals, for the 1st and the 3rd place: Rising Rain and Galactic Soccer will fight for the first continental title of the Season while Journey and U Work We Play will clash for 3rd placement. Sunday is the day of the super-final of the season that will see facing FC Gunners and Supernova, while the match for the 3rd place in Champions between LPF and FAL Classics will be played on Friday or on Sunday, same day of the 1st place final, but 1 hour before: stay tuned for further news. In the meanwhile we are closing the work on the amazing 3rd EVPA Season that will feature many new teams, all from the very top positions of world ranking :)
The LPF dream of reaching the continental victory impacted against the strong, hard wall of the Gunners: Vanghe's team reached and deserved the final of the top european competition with a doubtless 1-0 2-0 against the team of Baned0n and Siirio. Let's analyze the way the romanian (and international) team won from every point of view the clash against the italian Loggia. For the first match LPF used the usual 442, with the wings creating the game, the usual high defensive line and the strikers couple AndreaZap and Android. Baned0n and Lucky on the opposite sides were supposed to create superiority while in the middle mid DiegoZap and Ardiex were the ones that had to make circulating the ball, the defensive line, as usual in this knockout stage, was composed by Coez and Lollo in the middle and captain Siirio on the left back, Attyluccio completed the 4 men line of the defense and the young Juritico, one of the crack of the EVPA transfermarket, completed the roster.
For this double match Gunners were placed with a semi-specular 442, with the mighty couple Vanghe and ManDutzu as strikers, DanteJohnB as offensive midfielder and Cezar as central defensive line, Oxiao91 and FastMantopil operated on the sides while the goalkeeper Defaultkaa was protected by the line of four composed by Gabi_Stb4ever, Sharlatan, Raikon and ClauL.
Supernova won an incredible german derby semifinal yesterday night against FAL Classics in a continous alternance of emotions and surprises. Two of the best historical teams of Pro Club scene battled, leaded by two giants of FIFA since 2012: Jabigoal and Baka, to select which german team will try to repeat the victory of the Entourage for this season. The first match started with the goal at 10' minute by Wurstbernt: a long through ball from the defense by Baka reached the FALs striker, able to approach the box and releasing a powerful shoot that Nova's gk, Slevin, was unable to block: 1-0 for FALs as home and the whole match standed on a strong balance (50/50 ball possession and 6 vs 7 attempts); Jabigoal's team seemed more worried about not taking the second goal against then forcing their attack, probably preparing their counter moves for the return match.
The second match was opened in the very first minute by the Supernova's score: LadyElya managed the ball on the left side, went through the defender and released a lifted cross in the middle, Nova's forwarder, LastHope, attacked the space and impacted the ball by header with a not unreachable shoot: the error of FALs goalkeeper Bollwerck was evident, unable to catch the central ball and that decided the 1-0 for Supernova, immediately restoring the balance of the score in the two matches.
So there will be no german domination, not a full domination at least, for this 2nd EVPA Season: the surprising french team of Galactic Soccer won, against the previsions, their semifinal, in a balanced double 1-0 1-0 thanks to the goal of JasuXXX at 40' in the first match (with an unbelievable error by UWWP goalkeeper) and Skullmad at minute 57' in the second.
French Galactics, more than being the only french team going after the very firs stage of the european knockouts, reached the continental final at their first partecipation and are indeed the great surprise of the competition...
So, yesterday night polish team of Journey, with their leaders Zik and Jastrzab tried to raise a wall against the german domination on the continental cups: praised by exulting crowds of polish fans animated by the hope of seeing the white and red flag of the glorious nation over the top of europe, Journey standed with honour and pride against the german team of Tim_Immortal, the Rising Rain.
The first match against the two semifinalists of the Euroleage has a been a great, close, thight and hard battle, with a final 0-0 that showed a great balance, and so the first half of the second match, opened by the polish goal of Biernas at the 12': Rising Rain reaction was quick and furious, with a 1-2-3 from the 26' to the 38': Pyromaxy, and Timmortal (2) modified the result to 3-1 before the 3-2 goal by Zik at the end of first half. The game seemed still very open when the second half started.

We are closing the groups for the 3rd Season (to be started in ten days, on the 17th March week) and we'll give official communications about their composition at the start of the next week: in the meanwhile we have published a first version of the Calendar for this new EVPA Season what will proceed till the first days of May. I'd like to share some considerations with you about the quality of the teams we are proud to host in our european competition for FIFA Pro Club: checking the official Top 100 ranking of FIFA 14, considering the first 30 positions of the table we can see that, except the Asian teams, we have something as the 90% of teams partecipating: of the first 30 teams placed in the Club Top 100 classification we are just missing the italians Italia Pro Club and the Italian Job, and the german Naboki: all the other european teams, with the exception of a couple teams we discarded for doubt use of cheats during the season, are in our and your competition. This means a lot for the quality of the season: the short national playoff stage allows anyone to compete for qualification in the clash with the real best teams on FIFA and the european stage once more is going to be an epic confrontation with the most organized and prepared "game schools" of FIFA Pro Club mode: we are proud that many of the teams that were missing in this top classification joined us for the 3rd Season and you will discover how hard the competition will be, indeed the only european competition that will for real have the "champions", the top level of the FIFA scene thanks to the amazing collaboration of so many enthusiastic friends, partners, collaborators and just players, that have been able to create such a quality game context :) So, thanks all and prepare to enjoy this new EVPA Season!
While the current 2nd Season is in its very final stage, with the top teams from the continent fighting for the title of King of Europe, we are at work now with the creation of groups, calendar dates and fixtures for the 3rd Season: as you already know and as the many new teams will discover (we are very proud to host new top teams from FIFA scene, you'll discover how harder the competition will be), the EVPA season will keep its structure in three main stages: national/regional playoff, european groups, european knockouts till the final: many national groups evolved in more wide organizations, with much more teams, while new national "associations" were created thanks to the EVPA partecipation too: as you can check in our Project page, the spreading of autonomy and self-organization is, on our point of view, the key for the success of the EVPA association and we are very happy that scenes as France and Portugal are widening so much to take on their own the organization of the national groups (following the models of Baka's proleague.de). What we want to do know is to ask to you EVPA players your suggestions to improve even more our association and your experience here in the top european competition for FIFA Pro Clubs: that's why we invite you to share your suggestions on our forums on THIS thread, where registered user can write their ideas, proposing modifications, new competitions, etc. We'll read all your questions/proposals and we are always open to new staff members that want to join the wonderful team of EVPA direction, cheers!
With the exception of the match of tonight, against LPF and Good Boys (live here on stream at 22.00 CET today), all the matches of the Champions and Euroleague knockouts were played during the night of yesterday, with many interesting verdicts. In Champions competition the match between the FC Gunners 1947 and the spanish Gillette Team was a one-man-show by romanian captain Vanghe85, author of 3 goals and a key assist in the double victory 2-1 and 2-0 against the spanish team of Patosy (still topscorer of the competition with 14 scores): the Gunners showed the usual great strenght and they are probably the most favoured team for the final victory, their opponent in the first semi-final will be the winner of the match between italian LPF and polish Good Boys.
After the victory of FAL Classics in the exciting double match with Czech Lions, with their 90' minute qualification, the Supernova obtained their vengeance for the elimination received in the first EVPA Season against portugal AvAcalhation, with a nect 3-1 in the first match and the usual great show of Supernova's captain Jabigoal, now second in the topscorer table with 12 scores and still with the possibility to reach the final. The great effort of AvAcalhation in recovering the first match defeat was vanified partly by the horrible performance of Origin servers yesterday late night, with many disconnections that affected both portugal and germany team while, about at the 60' of the game, the match was still 0-0 with anyway no so many hopes of reverting the result. Supernova's victory leads to a german derby, this time in the semifinal so the Champions competition will avoid at least a full german final :D Let's take a look now to the Euroleague matches...
Good morning everyone, while Champions and Euroleague quarter-finals are being organized (and the majority of matches have been already arranged), we have started preparing the beginning of the Third EVPA Season too, scheduled for the week starting on 17th March. We already received many new requests and, with the other admins, we decided anyway that we will not widen the number of teams more than one hundred: there will be some choices to do then and we will choice for first teams that showed the greatest organization, availability and of course a good FIFA :) The teams that alread partecipated to 2nd Season will be contacted for their confirmation or the communication of not partecipation, while the new teams that want to join the EVPA can contact us with the Join Us module of the website: subscriptions will be closed on 10th March. We are contacting national/groups admins to check teams partecipation and you will find soon online all the rosters for the next, super-hot season :D
