Hold your breath and dive into this new competition!
If you are unsure what a CEG event is, click here.
Teams and positions:
For FFF's first Blitzball Match, each cegling has randomly been assigned to one of two teams. They have also been randomly assigned roles within these teams.
The results of the random assignments are as follows:
Team 1  Scarlet Scorers:
 (Forward)
 (Secondary Midfielder)*
 (Midfielder)
 (Left Defence)
 (Right Defence)
 (Goalkeeper)
Team 2  Blue Bosses:
 (Forward)
 (Secondary Midfielder)*
 (Midfielder)
 (Left Defence)
 (Right Defence)
 (Goalkeeper)
Each cegling is wearing coloured clothing to represent their team (trunks, bikinis, tshirts, or arm bands, etc).
How to play:
 The blitzball starts in position in the centre of the map.
 The first poster chooses which of the ceglings to support out of the Midfielders (in this case or )  the blitzball then moves to that cegling.
 Depending on the direction which the blitzball moves, the following posters can decide if they want to:
 pass the blitzball to a nearby teammate
 tackle the blitzball using a cegling from the opposing side
 DO NOT DOUBLE POST. You must allow at least three other posts between your turns.
 ONLY PASS TO / TACKLE CEGLINGS WHO ARE CLOSE TO THE CEGLING YOU DECIDE TO CONTROL (see below map in spoilers for help)
 The ceglings are spread out across the entire Blitzball Sphere, so you will find that the Forward of each team is already positioned close to the goal of the opposing team.
 When a cegling tackles an opponent, the blitzball is transferred to whoever did the tackling.
 When the ball reaches a team's Forward position then the next person to post can attempt to score a goal (simply type 'Such and such attempts to score a goal'). I will need to step in to determine the outcome using a dice roll.
 If a keeper saves the ball then the keeper must pass to one of the teammates near to the goalposts. The keeper cannot be tackled.
 The aim of the game is to score as many goals as possible before the end of the game
Use the below diagram if you have difficulty understanding positions and which ceglings can interact with each other.
Green lines = Can be tackle / be tackled in this direction.
Blue or red lines = Directions you can pass to a teammate.
Yellow lines = Forward position direction for scoring.
Swapping positions:
All ceglings have to remain in their fixed positions during this game. This is the only way to make it possible for people post their moves without me having to update the graphic for new positions very regularly.
If you really want a cegling to swap positions (not teams) with another ceglings then you can do so by doing the following:
 Posting in a Final Fantasy discussion thread (and posting the link to your post here to prove it)
 Sharing the FFF Magazine on social media (and posting the link here to prove it)
Other than that, they remain fixed.
Scoring:
The prizes will be determined at a later date.
Anybody can participate (even if you are not the parent of a participating cegling). All human participants shall be rewarded.
The parents of all participating ceglings shall be rewarded with participation prizes.
Additionally the parents of the ceglings on the winning team will get better prizes.

To allow people to post freely I shall let people type their moves most of the time, but if it helps to locate where the blitzball is at any particular time then I can step in to update the map with the current position of the ball.
If anyone does need help with anything, please do let me know. This is a bit of an experiment and if I need to explain the rules more, I'm willing to do so.
