UK CHAMPIONSHIP 2009 - It's Coming!!!

Birmingham was extremely proud to have hosted the very memorable UKC '08, Birmingham and the surrounding area remains the centre of much KO2 action, and with Birmingham being home to the reigning UK Champion (Jon G), we just had to do it again!

Image

Who will be the next UK KO2 Messiah ? Could Jon Walks-on-Water Greenaway do it again ? Maybe someone new will arise from last year's holy trinity separated only by goal difference ? Perhaps the evil anti-christ will go the extra mile this time and reach the promised land? And God only knows what other contenders there's sure to be in the race to join that elite group of ...

The Chosen Ones

UKC '02 Champion - Rikki F
UKC '03 Champion - Martin J
UKC '04 Champion - Martin J
UKC '05 Champion - James B
UKC '06 Champion - Dan C
UKC '07 Champion - Gianni T
UKC '08 Champion - Jon G

The journey to answering all of these questions and more begins here...

Steve and I propose to organise a 1-day, UK-only event on Saturday 10 October 2009. Exact details are to follow but we're hoping to have one big x1 league as well as some kind of fun cup competition with the day running something like 10am to 6pm. As previously stated, we'll be adopting the same tournament settings as the last two major UK events (i.e 2x5mins, normal pitch, no wind, A=B, slidefree and PBD mix). We plan to use the same venue with its excellent facilities and central location. One of the things that made last year's UK Championships so special for me was the mixture of regular players and those making comebacks/debuts. We hope this trend continues, and we hope everyone will support our efforts to create a positive and enthusiastic mood for the UK Championships 2009.

We're keeping costs as low as possible again and based on attendance of about 16 players we can expect to cover the room/trophy costs for a fee of just £10 each. Not bad for the UK's KOA's national gathering, full of KO2 magic including of course the crowning of the UK Champion 2009!!! We're looking to have 10 confirmed players before we book/place a deposit on the venue. Once we're booked up, we'll then see what interest there is for 5-a-side footy and/or a meal as well.

This thread is to be used to confirm your attendance and offer hardware support. Please post in the following format:

Name: JUSTDO IT
Confirmed: Y/N
Hardware: xAmiga, xTV/Monitor, xScart/Cable etc


This is sure to be special so come on all you UK KO2 fans - take part in the fun and join us - let's make this happen now!

Okay, we've had a re-think and changed our approach. I've amended the top post so please read and for the sake of clarity I've deleted the original replies. We're hoping the date we're suggesting which is still over 4-months away will be clear in most people's diaries so will improve availability. Fingers crossed! The time for waffling is over, time to get confirming......

The UK Championships will happen if people want it bad enough. This for me, is the last chance we have of a 2009 UK Champs. If it succeeds it will be because of everyone who attends.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the invite Gary 8) but that weekend will my 5th wedding anniversary :shock: so I wouldn't be able to attend.

Good luck with the organisation though :)

Just curious, is this a "UK only" event?

As Danny Dinneen will confirm, Ireland is part of the UK. The different flag and use of the Euro are symbolic gestures and just a cunning ploy to get an extra football and rugby team so that we have 5 of each.

On this basis you can attend. We'll overlook the fact you are a Portugoose.

I think what Robert is saying is this. Crap foreigners are allowed to attend, we just don't want Gianni or Dagh coming over and running away with the title of UK chaYmpion.

I second Robert's intepretation of the residency rules. :)

With no disrepect to any of our european friends - and I do mean that - this approach has evolved from last year. The two big tournaments held over here were the London International and the UK Championships. Having an international tournament and uk-only tournament seemed reasonable, gave us the best of both worlds and it seemed popular judging from my impressions at last year's UKC.

Having said that, at the moment the UKC is less UK-only, and more me-steve-and-durban only! A number of players have expressed privately a definate interest to attend but aren't able to confirm at this point in time. We do, however, need more UK players to come forward so we can justify booking the venue. The UKC'09 needs YOU! 8)

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Good thinking

I will seriously consider to attend (lose) this tournament.

In fact the following conversation happened last night at dinner:

Pedro "I'm thinking of going to Birminham in October, to play KO2 "
Ana (wife, for those who haven't met her) "Great, but this time I want to stay near the city center"
Pedro "...who said anything about YOU coming?"
