For over 400 years the people of Britain have been United. In 1603 when King James IV of Scotland became King James I of England no-one knew what the new county would become. That country went on to become a world super power. The British Empire once covered a quarter of the globe and spread many things around the world. One of these was football, a game which is now played in every country in the world. Despite this, the United Kingdom has only ever hosted a single world cup. 2018 was set to be the year the Kingdom hosted it's second world cup. This is the story of how one decision turned the United Kingdom into A Kingdom United.



We British folk have our differences.
Some of us are lions, some unicorns and some dragons.
We are roses, shamrocks, thistles and daffodils.
Some celebrate St. George, some St. Patrick, some St. Andrew and some St. David.

However, some things are bigger than national rivalries.
There comes a time when we must put these rivalries aside.
Every generation has one moment when they must unite.
Our generation's moment is now.

2018 is the year Britannia ruled the waves.
2018 is the year Britannia rose again.
2018 is the year Britannia United.

    Throughout the 2018 World Cup Finals everyone following the thread will be able to predict the outcome of matches. Fans will need to simply predict the whether each match will be a Home Win, Draw or Away Win.

    Correctly predicting the group match results will award one point. In the knockout stages you will earn 2 points for each match. If a match ends in 90 minutes then you'll earn two points then, if it ends after 120 minutes you will earn 1 point for correctly guessing the result after 90 minutes and a second for the result after 120 minutes. If a match goes to penalties 1 point will be awarded for the score after 120 minutes and a second for the score on penalties. This will give a total of 80 points awarded for the match results.

    Four pre-tournament predictions will award 5 points each to take the total points available to 100 points. The four categories are World Champion, Golden Boot Winner (top scorer) and Golden Glove Winner (best goalkeeper) and Golden Ball Winner (best player).

    Each point earned from this will be worth one sticker from the sticker album.

    Pre-tournament predictions:

  • No international tournament is complete without the accompanying sticker album so what international career mode story could be complete without the accompanying sticker album. The official A Kingdom United sticker album is now available. There are 50 stickers to collect covering the 32 teams, 12 stadiums, 3 major awards (Golden Ball, Golden Boot and Golden Glove) and three special stickers celebrating the new World Champions.

    You can earn stickers from predictions in this thread. Correctly predicting the winner of each match will give you a chance of winning either of the teams in the match or the stadium. There is also a small chance of instead winning one of the six special stickers.

    You will be able to swap stickers with other users in this thread or you can trade in your unwanted stickers to get other stickers. Swaps can be done at any rate you like, for example you might have a rare sticker and swap it with another user for multiple less rare stickers. If you would like to swap a sticker with another user then both users need to send me a PM confirming the deal. However, don't think you need to stick to PMs for negotiating swaps, why not make someone an offer in the thread so that everyone knows about your proposal, if you're lucky then other users might come back with an even better offer for you.

    You can trade in stickers at the following rates:
    • 2 copies of one sticker can be traded in for a sticker of your choice
    • 2 stickers from one group* can be traded in for a duplicate-protected sticker from that group*
    • 3 stickers from one group* can be traded in for a sticker of your choice
    • Any 3 stickers can be traded in for a random sticker
    • Any 4 stickers can be traded in for a sticker of your choice

    * A Group is classed as each Group Stage Group for nations as well as all Stadiums, the three award stickers and the 3 World Champions stickers.

    You can view the sticker album here.

  • Is it weird that I read those final lines like it was the voice from the “total war” games? Lol. Not sure I’ve read a story of yours yet. Looking forward to it

    Haha love the intro to this, graphics looking clean and top quality right now, also looking forward to the community games such as the predictions and sticker album! I think Wales may go further than England but let's see how the groups look before making that prediction, don't have much hope for N. Ireland or the Scots though

    Thanks Ashy, I wanted to make it a dramatic opening.

    Interesting prediction. I'll make sure to quote this post at the end and see how it compares to the outcome (having worked out the group draw I know the groups already so won't predict). The group draw is as it would have been in real life had the pots been adjusted for these three instead of the three I've removed - luckily it's quite similar to real life.

    Oh wow, that's brave. Guess everyone is forgotten how 4 years ago I won the WC with Nepal.

  • 2018 FIFA World Cup Hosts Set To Be Decided


    Spanish players celebrate after winning this summer's FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Tomorrow we will find out where the 2018 World Cup will be held.

    Wednesday 1st December 2010
    FIFA Headquarters, Zurich, Switzerland


    The FIFA Executive Committee are set to meet tomorrow to vote upon the hosts of the 2018 World Cup. England and Russia are thought to be favourites to host the world's biggest sporting event. Portugal and Spain, and Belgium and the Netherlands have also submitted joint bids but it is thought FIFA would prefer not to have multiple host countries. Below we profile the four bids.

    Manufacturing Tank Manufacturing Oakley Top Oakley Tank
    The joint bid by the Euro 2000 hosts is considered to be the least likely bid to win.

    The bid consists of seven stadiums in each of Belgium and the Netherlands. Five of the stadiums in Belgium will be built especially for the tournament whilse only one of the Dutch stadiums will be specially built for the tournament. The final is set to be hosted in Eindhoven.
    Tank Oakley Tank Oakley Top Manufacturing Manufacturing


    The 1966 world champions are considered favourites to host the 2018 World Cup. The bid is thought to be the most well rounded bid of any nation and it certainly looks like football will be coming home in 2018. England have previously hosted the 1966 tournament and Euro 1996.

    Fifteen stadiums from twelve cities have been proposed to host the World Cup with the final list of twelve to be decided in 2013. Matches will be played in all areas of the county before the final at Wembley Stadium in London.


    The joint Iberian bid by the Euro 2000 hosts is considered to be one of the outsiders to win the rights to host the 2018 World Cup. Whilst Portugal have never won a World Cup, Spain are the reigning World Champions having beat the Netherlands to win their first world title in July of this year.

    Whilst the exact host stadiums are yet to be decided it is thought nine will be from Spain and three from Portugal. Eighteen venues across sixteen cities in Spain have been proposed along with three stadiums in two Portuguese cities. The final will take place at the Camp Nou in Barcelona.


    The Russian bid is thought to be the second favourites to host the World Cup. The bid is thought to be FIFA President Sepp Blatter's favourite to host the competition. The nation have only ever qualified for the world cup twice having failed to get out of the Group Stage both times. The Soviet Union's best finish was fourth place in 1966.

    Fourteen stadiums have been proposed to host the World Cup with the final set to be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.


    After several years of the bidding process we will finally know who will host the 2018 World Cup tomorrow. The 2022 World Cup hosts will also be decided at the same time with Australia and the United States of America thought to be among the favourites. Japan, South Korea and Qatar have also submitted bids.

    I'm curious to see what's next, especially how you manage to get Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales involved. Keep it up!

    I'm excited to see how this goes. Wales are an exciting team to watch. Hopefully England can turn their luck around.

    I’ve got a good plan for getting them involved. The announcement of who will be hosting should be tonight or in the tomorrow. Then the next update will give the first hint of how they’re in. My aim is to have that storyline concluded by Sunday/Monday so I can start the tournament on time next Thursday.

    Very cool to see you go into the story on how the bids of the host nations are fighting it out, I never may too much attention to all that but it's interesting to see it here. I really hope England get to host a WC or even a Euro's in the near future, sometime between 2026-2030 I want to go to as many games as I can

    This is awesome! Same as @Ashy , I didn't even know how it works.
    Hope Brazil do a better WC than did here in 2014

    Thanks Ashy.

    We won't be hosting 2026. The vote on that is next week. Either Mexico-USA-Canada or Morocco. 2030 will either be in England/Britain or Uruguay–Argentina–Paraguay (and maybe Chile). UEFA and the German FA have backed us to host it. 2030 will esentially be the country that invented the game or the country that held the first WC in 1930.

  • Russia To Host 2018 FIFA World Cup


    Thursday 2nd December 2010
    FIFA Headquarters, Zurich, Switzerland


    Russia were today announced as the hosts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The European nation won the right to host the event after a vote by the FIFA Executive Committee.

    Only 22 of the 24 members of the Executive Committee were eligible to vote after Reynald Temarii of Tahiti and Amos Adamu of Nigeria were suspended following an investigation into reports that they offered to sell their votes.

    To win the vote a bid needed 50-percent-plus-one of the votes of the executive committee members present. When no bid achieved an absolute majority, the bidder with the lowest number of votes was eliminated and a new round of voting will took place.

    After the first round of voting the English bid was eliminated after only getting 2 votes. Russia received 9 votes, Spain/Portugal 7 and Netherlands/Belgium 4. Russia finally won the vote after the second round getting 13 of the 22 votes. Spain/Portugal received 7 votes and Netherlands/Belgium got 4.

    Meanwhile, after four rounds of voting Qatar edged out the United States of America to win the rights to host the 2022 World Cup.

    The news of this result has been met with anger in several countries including England. Allegations of corruption in the voting process had already been made in the build up to the vote and the news of England being eliminated early on will not help this. The UK Government is expected to launch a full investigation into this process.

    UK Government Commits Money To Ensure Victory At 2018 FIFA World Cup


    Tuesday 10th May 2011
    Houses of Parliament, London, United Kingdom


    Following December's announcement of Russia and Qatar as hosts of the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups allegations of corruption in the bidding process have never been far from the headlines. Today the UK Government issued a statement on their intentions to show that whilst Russia may have bought the rights to host the 2018 World Cup, the UK will use their financial clout to win the World Cup.

    Earlier today Lord Treisman, the former head of the England 2018 bid, told a House of Commons select committee that four FIFA committee members approached him asking for various things in exchange for votes. Among the accused are FIFA Vice President Jack Warner, who is accused of asking for £2.5 million to be used for projects, and Nicolas Leoz, who allegedly asked to be knighted.

    The Sunday Times also reported today that two committee members, Issa Hayatou and Jacques Anouma, were given $1.5 million in exchange for voting for Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup. An email has also leaked from FIFA General Secretary Jérôme Valcke suggesting that Qatar had "bought" the rights to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

    Earlier this year FIFA President Sepp Blatter admitted that the Spanish and Qatari bid teams did try to trade votes although he claimed it didn't work.

    As a result of all of these allegations the UK Government is now certain that the 2018 World Cup vote was not a fair contest. This statement has now been released:
    The UK Parliament would like to formally place on record their disappointment at the illegal activities that appear to have happened during the voting process for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup host nations.

    The Government had fully supported the Football Association's bid to host the 2018 World Cup and shares their disappointment at not being named hosts.

    Initial estimates suggested the cost to the Exchequer of delivering all aspects of the World Cup would have been in the region of £250 million. This figure was an early estimate and would have been subject to further confirmation nearer to the event. Hosting the tournament was expected to have contributed around £2.1 billion to £3.2 billion to the UK economy.

    After months of discussion at all levels of Government, Her Majesty's Government is delighted to confirm they will be using the £250 million earmarked for hosting the competition to ensure one of the United Kingdom's teams returns from Russia as World Champions. Whilst exactly how the money will be used is yet to be confirmed it will be made available to the Football Association, the Irish Football Association, the Scottish Football Association and the Football Association of Wales. It is the hope of the Right Honourable Members of both Houses of Parliament that all four home nations will qualify for the World Cup and one will return home as World Champions.
