Women's links update

Site

Due to the increasing amount of women's Australian football around the world, worldfootynews.com is re-organising its Links section, to provide appropriate categories rather than simply "Women's footy".

As such, our existing women's footy links will be shifting and appearing in the What's New section on the right hand side of the website.

World Rankings update

Site

WFN has updated its unofficial World Rankings after the recent international matches in Europe. Favourites Ireland (ranked 4th) defeated Great Britain (10th) in a thriller in Dublin, whilst in Copenhagen home side Denmark (8th) won comfortably over Sweden (11th). The home town wins to the higher ranked sides saw only one change to the rankings, with Denmark stepping above South Africa into 7th.

Irish Warriors 8.11 (57)
British Bulldogs 8.6 (52)

Denmark Vikings 12.7 (79)
Sweden Elks 4.5 (29)

Below are our updated ranks.

WFN looking for more volunteers

Site

As football continues to expand its presence outside of Australia, greater news coverage is also required. Being a volunteer organisation our writers are limited by how much time they can commit to the site and occassionally we need to put out a request for assistance.

Our current areas of need are SE Asia, Africa and Canada, however we can always do with more assistance in other areas, such as covering the long list of European countries or keeping an eye on the lower tiers within Australia.  You don't need to be based in any particular country (most of our writers are in fact in Australia, although many have had overseas experience) nor do you need to have been involved with international football before. And with the 2011 Australian Football International Cup coming up in August the more writers the better based out of Melbourne and Sydney.  In general to write for us all you need is a spare hour or so a week, adequate writing skills and a love of the game.

We will give you support, provide plenty of contacts, and no particular computer skills are required - we'll show you how to upload your stories through a relatively simple web page. So if you have an interest in supporting international footy and getting a behind-the-scenes view on the game's growth, then consider volunteering to write for WFN. Contact Brett Northey for more information through our About Us - Contact Us page (or click on my name above and follow the links).

Asian footy snapshots completed

SiteWFN has now completed its Country Snapshots section for Asia.

This finalises our Snapshots, although they will always need ongoing updates.

The other completed regions are Africa, Europe, Oceania, the Middle East and North, Central and South America. They are available from the pulldown menu above titled Countries.

As always, let us know if there are any significant errors or omissions. We do realise that the Census data (2004) is well out of date, and there is some more recent data available. We'll hopefully address that at the end of the year.

Advertising feature - Burley / Sekem international brochure

Site

A quick plug for our main sponsor, Burley-Sekem, who do sell to countries around the world, and can provide various Australian football items including Guernseys (jumpers) and footballs. Of particular interest is the colourful array of international jumpers they've produced and specifically featured in their brochure which can be accessed by clicking on the yellow Order Sheet that features at the top of our site.

WFN launches new logo and banner

Site

Over the last few days worldfootynews.com has been pleased to unveil our new logo and website banner. Both are courtesy of Anthony Costa of Costa Sports Logos.

The logo features our commonly used acronym, WFN, as well as the website address, and a world map morphed to a football. The banner features images from the 2008 Australian Football International Cup. Time and quality photos permitting, we may be lucky enough to have Anthony produce a similar banner featuring other images later in the year.

And as always we hope many websites will make use of our logo to link to us, or at least consider putting us in their text links, so we can continue to spread their football news all around the world.
