Title: Unnamed Soccer Sim
Post by: GM Kirk on August 22, 2015, 05:36:36 AM
Setting up the league on the sim is coming to the final stages. I'm currently setting up the teams but I don't really have any feeling about or connection to any cities to include. The league will be a North American league, so mostly from USA but I'd also like a couple of teams from neighbouring countries. I could just pick cities at random, but I'd be open to suggestions. Just because you suggest a city does not mean you will automatically get to manage the team, though.

Philadelphia! We have a solid fan base already with the Union. But we get no respect in sims.

Also for larger markets, Houston TX and Dallas TX

I would steer away from using MLS cities.

I would go with Harrisburg or Pittsburgh, PA... Austin, TX, Fort Worth, TX (For the ones TJ suggested)

I'll throw out a few other cities...

Cincinnati, OH
St. Louis, MO
Raleigh-Durham, NC
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN (Twin Cities FC)
Ann Arbor, MI
Tacoma, WA
Buffalo, NY
Sacramento, CA
Boise, ID

Edmonton, ON, CA
San Juan, Puerto Rico

I live in Texas and we have a few markets that would work. Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Amarillo, Austin, and El Paso.

Others to consider: St. Louis, MO; Little Rock, AR; Fayettville, AR; Edmond, OK; Panama City, FL; Stockton, CA; Sacremento, CA; Vancouver, BC; Springfield, MO, Ann Arbor, MI (FC Double A sounds kinda cool)

Pick the places that share names with UK places (e.g. Cambridge, Lincoln, Birmingham, Boston, etc.). Then I can be amused too! :D

Edmonton, ON, CA

I love the battle of Alberta with Calgary and Edmonton - quite disappointed to see that Edmonton is now in Ontario.

I was already considering the El Passo Posse (which gives you an idea of the standard of nicknames my game is likely to have).

That's an easy sponsorship deal for whoever takes over that team.
