CLUB
3 min readJul 31, 2023

Hey there, COs!

Summer is in full swing, and while some of us are catching some rays outside the office, fear not — the tech team is hard at work, locked in a dusty cupboard, making magic happen for the game.

Grab a cool drink and let’s dive into what’s been happening…

Game development

By now you’ve likely heard we’re gearing up for a season of testing (if not, get the lowdown here). Behind the scenes, we’re busy prepping builds, tweaking interfaces, and switching gears from our internal test MLS league back to the Premier League.

A huge thumbs up to everyone who signed up to help test the game — we appreciate you! Keep an eye out for more details coming your way very soon. 👍

For the rest of you who are eagerly awaiting your chance to get into the game, thanks in advance for your patience. All COs will get to download the new version of CLUB when the time is right.

We can’t wait to craft the game with you all over the next few months, leading up to our 2024 soft launch.

Meet the team — Neil

Time for a new segment in our updates — a chance to get to know our team a little better.

This month, to kick things off, Neil Dejyothin, our Executive Producer, is in the hot seat. He shares an insight into his role at FG, talks about his favourite games, football allegiances, and why he’s so fired up about CLUB.

Win an exclusive NIFC shirt

Remember when Newcastle Independent FC lifted a cup last year with the CLUB logo emblazoned proudly on their shirts? Ah, good times!😊

Well we’re delighted to be able to offer one of those iconic shirts to our community. So, if you want to add this collector’s item to your own wall, or even wear it the next time you step out onto the pitch? Enter the NIFC shirt giveaway in our Discord — hop in here to enter the raffle.

Wondering which club we’ll be sponsoring next? Well, we’re just waiting for the ink to dry on an agreement with a new team, so stay tuned for some exciting news soon. 👀

Do you FPL?

You asked and we listened — CLUB is running an official FPL League again this season! Last year was just a warm-up — and there are prizes up for grabs for the top three this season. 🔥

We like to do things differently around here, so this year, it’s a head-to-head format which means a bad week or two won’t ruin your chances entirely, but make sure to sign up before the first gameweek to secure your spot.

The league code you need is: i7e6mr or simply click this link to sign up and enter.

Also, don’t miss our Predictions League and various other games and competitions on our socials and in Discord throughout the season.

Quiz night returns!

Alright football geniuses, time to test your knowledge!

Our CO Phil is hosting a quiz night on Friday 5th August at 8pm in our Discord. This should be a fun opportunity to reawaken your football brain after the summer and see how you stack up against other people!

Join the quiz and thanks in advance to Phil, one of our long-standing COs for hosting.

Until next time,

Formation Games Team
