Do you reckon if I get Sunville and another team to post their applications quickly, that the total number of teams can be extended to 10 to include our team?

Do you have players already?

What Is Ironball?

Ironball is the #1 sport in Minecraft and garners thousands of players every year. It's primary server, HelloMiners, is the largest platform where all the best players and teams originate. Scepticon's definition of Ironball:

[+] Ironball
What is Ironball?
Ironball's closest relatives in real life are hockey (that's hockey, not ice hockey), and soccer/football (either one depending one where you live). You are put into teams, and are given sticks enchanted with knockback II, referred to as 'Ironball sticks', and extremely alike to hockey sticks (functionally at least). You the have to hit the 'ball' (an iron golem) into the opposing team's goal to score. The most popular way of deciding a winner is by doing a 'first to three' match, where to win, your team has to score three goals before the other team can. This is great for one-off games and mini-tourneys, but not so for league games. We play as the soccer/football leagues do normally, except we have 30 minute games instead of 90 minute games.
By the way, if you're wondering, the sticks are provided by the league, but if you want, you can always buy some of your own from the Government Trading Centre!

Teams

Teams will be comprised of two (2) starters and at least 1 reserve player. The more players per team, the better. Each city (8) will have their respected team and will battle each other in 7 games.

Yeah we have players but if it's already too late to apply and the games will be starting soon, it's best perhaps not to cause disruptions so it's okay if we have to join perhaps next time.

The cb field is a block or 2 off in length too i think
