31st MayMay 2023 Community Update
Hey COs! The football season might be drawing to a close but work in the Formation Games Studio is ramping up! Let’s dive straight into what we’ve been up to this month…
Our socials are on fire!
In May, we proudly announced a new partner and investor in Formation Games — Little Dot Studios, an award-winning digital content agency and media network. Little Dot collaborate with some of the world’s most recognised TV, sports and consumer brands, creating premium content for over 600 social channels globally. Altogether, Little Dot Studios is responsible for a whopping seven billion organic views per month 👀
To kick off our partnership, we sent Olivia Buzaglo down to Lewes FC, a community club with a seriously cool ownership model. If you’ve not seen the TikTok yet, check it out here.
This was the first part of our new ‘Meet the Clubs’ series — more of this coming soon. If you know a club with an interesting backstory that we should visit, please get in touch!
We also introduced some fresh faces to our TikTok channel and boy, did they make a splash! A couple of our videos went viral and, altogether, racked up an incredible 9 million views! Thanks to all our new contributors for helping to really put CLUB on the map this month.
We’re continuing to build the foundations of the game and this month we rallied around our internal working prototype to test the brand new game engine and hunt down any early bugs. We managed to squeeze in the end-of-the-season action during this test and let’s just say the leaderboard became a hotbed of fierce banter…
Your feedback will be crucial in making the game the best it can be, so stay tuned for more updates on when and how you can contribute.
Another new signing!
The Formation Games team keeps growing, and this month we added Poppy Bennett as our Multi-Media Marketing Apprentice. Poppy lives and breathes football, having been a football coach and player, with spells at Tottenham Hotspur and Stevenage.
NIFC lift the trophy 🏆
Newcastle Independent FC finished their season in style, defeating local rivals Newcastle Blue Star to claim the Northumberland FA Benevolent Bowl. The winning goal came in the 91st minute with Harvey Walsh firing home after a quick counterattack move.
Adam from Formation Games was there in person, cheering them on to victory! Well done NIFC.
It’s a wrap!
European football is pretty much wrapped up now, and what a thrilling season it’s been! While we’ve been hard at work building the game, you’ve been enjoying our various community side games. So here is a quick shoutout to some of our community champions this year:
· The CLUB FPL League champion: Chris Roche
· Winner of the CLUB FPL Cup: Peter Oluwaseun Ajayi
· Our Prediction League winner: GO22
And a big shoutout to those of you who managed to take home a Shot or Not prize this season — it sure hasn’t been easy!
Curious about the players who would have scored the highest in our game this year? We’ll soon reveal the rankings, but we’d love to hear your guesses for the top 5!
And of course, get ready for an even more thrilling season ahead… 😉
Until next time,
Formation Games Team
28th AprApril 2023 Community Update
Happy April COs! Things are hotting up here at Formation Games HQ and we don’t mean the Spring weather. Get ready for another dose of Formation Games’ news and updates.
More world-class talent joins Formation Games!
We are delighted to announce that Adam Sullivan has joined the team as Lead UI/UX Designer. Adam has a wealth of experience in mobile games and was one of the founding members at Space Ape Games, the studio behind the award-winning game, Beatstar. He also worked at world renowned Playfish and Sony PlayStation.
We’re also very proud to welcome Claire Charalambos as Head of Finance. Claire spent over a decade at the FA alongside our Chairman, Alex where they oversaw the build of Wembley Stadium & St. George’s Park. A big welcome to both Claire & Adam!
With Adam on board, much of our focus this month has been on the game’s UI/UX. We have been — and continue to be — relentless on creating a game that is distinctive, both visually and in terms of the player experience. Watch this space! Momentum is building and we’re very excited to bring you, our community along the journey with us.
The Formation Games Forest
We believe in making our studio sustainable and minimising our impact on the planet.
Back in February, we asked for your help in deciding which sustainability project to support. The votes have all been counted and we are happy to announce that our forestry project will be…
…the Desa’a Forest in Ethiopia!
This is an ambitious, award-winning project that aims to restore and protect one of the oldest remaining dry Afromontane forests in Ethiopia. The project will help to support the 26,000 people who live below the poverty line, relying on the forest for water, energy and to feed their cattle.
Check out the GamesForest Club website to learn more about the project.
Thanks to all our COs who voted!
What’s it really like being a football club owner?
CLUB will allow fans to step into the shoes of a Football Club Owner, and to make sure we get it right, we’re meeting some of the UK’s most interesting clubs, including their Owners.
Last weekend we took CLUB Presenter Mitch Tucker down to Plough Lane to spend the day with AFC Wimbledon. Whilst there, we spoke to some of the fans, members of The Dons Trust and to Ivor Heller, one of the original Co-Founders. They may have had a tough season, but they managed to secure their league status with a couple of games to go and the fans were in good voice, regardless of the result.
Keep an eye on socials for our Meet the Clubs series and a big thank you to everyone at AFC Wimbledon for making it happen.
Prizes are on the way
We’ve started shipping prizes to our competition winners this year.
If you’re one of our elite Shot or Not winners get ready to receive our exclusive Shot or Not Champion’s ‘trophy’, with a tongue in cheek joke inside! Our monthly Discord quiz winners will also be receiving one of our new CLUB scarves. These are fresh off the production line and for the eagle-eyed COs, you may have spotted Mitch modelling one above. We’re excited for you to get your hands on them. Finally, a huge congrats to one of our COs, Mr Birds who won the Her Game Too sweatshirt last month.
More merch and more competitions to demonstrate your ball knowledge coming soon — so stay tuned!
That’s it for now, COs. Have a fantastic May and we’ll be in touch again in a few weeks.
Until next time,
Formation Games Team
