Great news! Oliver, Let me suggest you to fill this form: http://ko-gathering.com/wc2016/#wrapper5 so you will be the very first French to join a world cup!
I can dig a bit to find some info about the other two French players, although long time has passed, I'm sure I played with one in a German Championship in 2007 in Cologne, we played also real soccer together, we dressed the rest of the world team, playing against Germany. we won. He was a solid goal keeper. Lorain should be his name. a nice fellow.

Hi,,

I just registered. I watched some videos of 2008 finale and was very happy to see the quality of ball control you have. I can't wait to join the tournament. I was also suprised to see how you managed to customize some graphics in the game and added more information on the screen.

I still have to go through many videos but it's already very challenging and inspiring. As for the French players, that's ok if you can't find intel on them. We were not that many in the only French tournament I know about. I only hoped I could have my rematch with the winner, but I guess joining the world cup will provide even more happy souvenirs!

As for me, sorry but I can't play real soccer as my ankles are really too fragile.
I'll probably book my hotel room tonight when I get back home.

Cheers!
Olivier V.

Good question.
Past week I defined with hotel menus and costs for:
Friday night D&D (Dinner and Draw)
statuday and Sunday lunch buffets.
We are still defining the Saturday and Sunday night meals, they will be not in hotel restaurant. This is why I didn't started the proper week end events already.

I think that after 18.00 (Friday) there will be people (me and probably other players) setting up the tournament room with early hardware will reach the tournament room. So I think it will be possible to help, mounting Amiga and play then! :) until the dinner starts!

Well done Brothers! really glad you finally make it! :)
You know, the world cup is a 2 days event, day one (Saturday) is the qualification game with big groups in which you face players of the wider range of skills, from the bottom to the top, so, although you will miss the final stage, you will be able to play against with a wide range of players! between Friday to Saturday I'm sure you will find time to play also friendly games with you like and you will have time to know the KOA. Welcome!

Booking Details.

So, this will be the first world cup ever with a French player and 4 (FOUR!) Spanish players!
amazing, after 16 years we can still use the "first time" term :)
