The 2017 Arctic Cup (or How We Became Vikings in 72 Hours)

"Who thought footy would bring me to f***ing Iceland?" says a chilly Ross Levesque, bitterly surveying his drenched apparel against a backdrop of rugged rocky terrain and steep dark hills rising in the distance.

But it wasn't strictly footy that brought him to Iceland - rather, his brother Jay, whom Ross introduced to footy in 2003 and who is now a USA Revolution veteran, was the larger factor for Ross' short trip. The two faced off in the Arctic Cup, with Ross playing for a combination Swedish/Icelandic team and Jay for the Baltimore Washington Eagles.

The overall character of a football community, be it local, national, or international, is a sum of its parts.  Usually, we only see the high profile ones – the players on the ground, the coaches, and those in the upper reaches of the administrative hierarchy.  But the living and breathing dynamic of a club or a league also includes and relies on umpires, clubpeople, and fans for continuity.  For if it wasn’t for those, this community wouldn’t be here.

Austin, Portland Double Up; Calgary, Rats Back on Top

For the second straight season, the USAFL Nationals had two women’s divisions contested.  Nearly 200 women again took to the ground, and put on another memorable carnival.

Most people will look at the records of the women’s division and note its posterity for the fact that the longest title streak of any division in the two-decade history of the tournament came to an end in heart stopping fashion.
