About Fan Controlled Football

The League was a novel idea, giving fans the chance to be a part-owner, and coach of a Professional Arena Indoor Football Team. The FCF was 7v7 Arena style Football with no kicking. Teams start at the 10-yard line and drive to the endzone. The extra point is 1v1 between the Wide Receiver and the Defensive Back. All Games are 1 Hour long with a running clock, and the games were streamed live on twitch where the owner/coaches could vote on the plays of their team, whichever play voted highest was the one that was played.

Report

Two Ladies Fastpitch Teams were set up in 2000 by the Leinster Softball Association branch of the Irish Baseball & Softball Federation. With an aim of entering the Olympics (Women’s Fastpitch was an Olympic Sport) it was a step up from the Female Slowpich League which had been running since 1997. The Women’s International Fastpitch Team entered the Canada Cup in 2002 (see Fastpitch Softball Page).

About Fastpitch Softball

Fastpitch Softball is Women’s Baseball – there are 9 players on a Fastpitch Team (Like Baseball and unlike Co-Ed Slowpitch Softball which has 10 players per team with an extra player in the outfield,

Report

The first ever Irish Softball Association Intervarsities were held in 2001. University College Cork won the single Leg tournament, after which it was dominated by University of Limerick and University College Dublin teams. For the first three years in was a single leg tournament with UCD winning in 2002 and UL in 2003. From then on it was played as a three-leg tournament over November, March and April of each College Year. UL won the overall title in 2003-04 and 2005-06, either side of a UCD triumph. In 2006-07 it was Limerick Ori Ginals, not strictly a College side, but who entered the Intervarsities along with Galway Tribes for the next five years. Other Universities entering included Trinity College Dublin in 2001 and in 2015-16 Sons of Pitches won a Tournament in Limerick involving RCSI, UCD, and a combined UCD/Limerick/Tullamore team.

Report

Indigo Icons played in their first competitive Softball outing during August 1998 in the Dublin Bay Challenge Series, matching up quite well against Dublin Bay Packers, losing 27-19 after six innings to a team that had been playing League Softball for three years. They followed this up with a narrow 21-23 loss to Fallen Angels. In September the Fallen Angels wrapped up the Weekend League Series in the decider with Dublin Bay Packers, triumphing 20-3. The Dublin Bay Challenge Series was a Weekend Softball League that was intended to feature four teams, but Pigs in Space pulled out before the start.

Report

Marlay Martyrs’ Female Team, the M&Ms again won the Leinster Softball Association Ladies League in 1999, although this time they were pushed all the way by new team Easyriders, who finished just one win, and three points behind the M&Ms.

Easyriders became the second ever team to beat the team from Marlay Park in Rathfarnham when defeating them 10-4 on the last round of play, although by then the M&Ms had wrapped up the title. It was a loss to Brazen Hussies (who in 1997 were the only other team to ever win against the M&Ms), by the narrowest of margins (10-9) which in the end cost the Easyriders a share of first place. Brazen Hussies finished in mid-table with five wins from 10.

The Eadyriders were among a trio of teams who replaced the Oddsox Nonads, Foxy Sluggers and AIB Loan Homers Lisa from 1998 – the other two new teams were Dolly Birds (5-5, 35 Points), and Firebirds (1-8, 1 Forfeit, 21 Points). She Devils were the other team to return from the previous year, finishing 2-8 (22 Points).
