32 Countries, 31 Bloggers, One Trophy

So, I thought that this might be of interest for whomever. There are still apparently countries left and you don't necessarily have to follow the team offering up the contest. Let me know if there is a problem posting this! :)

From the site: is looking for 32 fans to write brief stories following every World Cup match, painting a picture for the Sounders FC community showcasing the essence of every beautiful game(and of course how rubbish the other side or referee performed).

They can be rants; they can be raves; they can be accounts of glory or simply a chronicle of your day at the pub watching the match ... but please refrain from simply providing boring rehashes of what every fan can read on any sports page.

These stories, which will combine to represent all 32 countries and 64 matches in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, will be featured daily on showcasing the day's competition put together in a head-to-head format.

Given the structure of the World Cup, you will commit to writing at least three stories during the Group Matches, and then up to a total of seven stories if your country is so fortunate to make it to July 11.

Enter for as many countries for whom you feel passionate, but only one blogger will be selected to represent each country.

The 32 selected bloggers will receive a pair of tickets to the Sounders FC friendly against Celtic FC on July 18, 2010 and given exclusive access to a training session that week.

Entry deadline is Friday, June 4, 2010 at noon PT.

The 5 Requirements:

  • Love soccer and your country
  • Be as creative, passionate, and biased as you like
  • No profanity, vulgarity, or racist comments allowed (we will edit if necessary)
  • Commit to writing up to seven (7) stories
  • Must be able to email your post by 4 pm PT after each match
