Programmed by Dino Dini with Graphics by Steve Screech, Kick Off 2 was first released 20 years ago (can you believe that!) and the game is still going strong across Europe today!!
Players from all over the UK will be meeting up for an extra special annual gathering in Birmingham on 22nd May 2010. We'll be hiring out a hotel conference room where we'll set up our Amiga hardware (yep, we're talking old skool gaming here). Players of all levels will be attending, some of whom play regularly and others not. Newcomers are very welcome too.
I took the what seemed like the daunting step of turning up to a tournament of strangers and found a good bunch of people who still enjoy having a laugh over the one of the greatest football games ever! This year will be my fourth one....

Three teethless lions on the shirt, two of them are naked, 44 years of hurt .... Football's going home, it's going home, it's going...
Ah, perdone we talk about Kick Off 2 - not of Englands national team....
Just don't mention the 5-1 in Germany! Even Emile Heskey scored! :/
That's what's great about football though, we'l all part of a country, all part of a team and what better way than continue this great trend with CLANS! Yep, for this years UK Championships if you and a bunch of mates are up for it then as well as your games counting officially, you can also total up your scores against other clans and see who comes out on top!
I attended my first UK Champs last year and I'm loving it! I may have lost a few games but it only makes the victorys that little bit sweeter! On the one level you'v got the social factor in having a laugh and the other you'v got a room full of Amiga's - it's recapturing the magic from yesteryear that's for sure.
