Since 2009, Yooyuball Planet has been delivering you all the latest news and action from the 18 national leagues around the world. Whether you're a fan of KI's Black Sail Pirates or FL's Jhudora's Judgement, we've got news and articles for all of the clubs around Neopia. With over 120 articles, our reporters are the best in the business, bringing you close to the sidelines and behind-the-scenes with transfer rumours, live match reports, and much more.

18 leagues, 90 clubs, over 450 players.
Welcome to Yooyuball Planet.



May.29.14 (Three years later)

And here we are, three years later as the 9th Altador Cup starts. It's been a long time! First off, thanks so much for the Site Spotlight. It means a lot to me! To be honest, I haven't visited this page for a long time. I've been super busy with Always Connected but I've recently returned and started browsing through the various pages. Wow, talk about nostalgia!

Next, if you're visiting this site for the first time, be sure to read the little notice below. As you can probably tell, this site hasn't been updated for quite some time and after a few years of reporting on "league seasons", the site came to a finish.

Finally, I wish you all the best of luck in ACIX. Have fun!

August.19.11 (The end, for now...)

The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.
- Vince Lombardi

Opening in 2009, Yooyuball Planet was my long return to Neopets and the site community. As the oldest of my five current sites, it definitely has a special place in my heart. After two years, I felt that it's time for me to move on from YYBPlanet. All of my sites have taught my something different and what I've learned most from this one is how to just have fun and be creative.

I've been neglecting this site ever since I opened up The Lunch Box and it isn't fair that I just leave YYBPLanet hanging. This was an issue that I thought about for the longest time, and coming to this decision wasn't easy. However, it does seem fitting. I've written well over 100 articles for this site, and it was definitely a lot of work for one person. After two complete "seasons", I think now is the right time.

When I started this project, no other site like this existed on Neopets and that remains true today. I've extremely proud of what I've managed to accomplish here. For now, I'm taking a break. Is this the end of Yooyuball Planet? Well, not exactly. I've never been a site owner to completely take down finished content just because a site is "closed", so this page and all of the articles will remain up. However, you can never predict the future. Maybe this reporter might just pick up the pencil and notepad someday...

Thanks to all of YYBPlanet's amazing affilites, directories, and visitors for standing by a project that didn't seem possible. You guys are just too awesome!

League Overview

As one of the oldest leagues in the world, the clubs in Altador are all held in high esteem and prestige. The birthplace of the beautiful game, many aspiring young yooyuballers often make it a goal to play at least one season in this veteran league. Though the national team has yet to experience any real success in their own Altador Cup, many of these clubs are considered to be among the best in Neopia. With numerous yooyuball academies across the nation, the youth leagues are much more developed, meaning that up and coming players are in no short supply.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • Medium

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 8
Highest ranking achieved: 1
Lowest ranking in history: 12
On average, Altador comes in at #8 out of 18, which isn't too shabby considering their international performance. As one of the most popular leagues in the world, fan attendance is always high which contributes to their ranking. In general, the league loses marks due to the divide between their "powerhouse" teams and smaller clubs.

Team Mottos: A goal is not scored by a single player, but by the entire team.

History: Alabriss All-Stars are known for being a squad that focuses on teamwork and passing, rather than scoring or individual strength. While they don't train as often or intensely as other teams, the All-Stars prefer to engage in exercises that increase their cooperation and their trust in one another. This reflects in their playing style, where each member is given a chance to score and nobody holds onto the yooyu for too long.

Fans & Stadium: Based along the less populated northern coast of Altador, the Alabriss All-Stars have a small but tremendously loyal fan base. Supporters take pride in knowing that their small team has a place in history in being one of the original yooyuball clubs in their land. Coast Way Coliseum seats 15,000 spectators. The roar of the waves mixed with the cheers of the crowd produces the perfect atmosphere for yooyuball games.

Team Mottos: Time ravages buildings. Statues are temporary. Altadorian Heroics will live on forever.

History: Altadorian Heroics is one of the oldest yooyuball squads in Neopia and have won well over 200 league titles. Respected by their peers not only for their longevity and accomplishments but also for the way they invent new techniques in the game of yooyuball. Though the team has been modernized and updated throughout the centuries, they still keep the same principles in their play and employ traditional methods and skills used long before them. It is said that if anyone wants to be a yooyuball player, they should first watch Altadorian Heroics play to learn the fundamentals.

Fans & Stadium: Home of the Heroes is a gigantic coliseum that can hold 65,000 spectators, making it the largest sports arena in Altador. At the entrance, fans can see marble statues of the twelve Altador heroes, along with a huge indoor pond that is said to bring good luck if you dip your finger in it. Whenever a member from Altadorian Heroics scores, the crowd would cheer and call the player a hero. For example, "Kayn Hireck's our hero! It's 1-0!

Team Mottos: In the arena, all power belongs to the Gladiators.

History: Founded by Prince Qaleebrah 832 years ago, Minitheus Gladiators are known for their physical playing style and fierce tackling, often resulting in multiple injuries for both teams. As one of the first yooyuball clubs in Altador, they have enjoyed huge success, winning over 200 league titles to date. They value playing fairly and honestly and strongly detest those who cheat. For their uniforms, the players have continued the tradition of wearing bronze body armor and helmets while playing.

Fans & Stadium: Being such an old team, the Gladiators enjoy one of the largest fan bases in Neopia. Fans call the club "Mini-Gladiators" and the fans themselves are known as "Minis". Their home stadium, The Arena of Power, seats an estimated 100,000 and is continually ranked as one of the best stadiums to watch yooyuball in.

Team Mottos: We are five beacons of light in the dark.

History: As the only attacking (3 + 1) team in Altador, Siyana's Elite is known for their goal scoring capabilities from all areas of the field. In fact, for many seasons the Elite would sign a center forward to play in the position of the lone center defender in the back. They eventually reverted back to signing an actual center defender to take the defensive role when they found out they couldn't win by the number of goals alone. Like other teams around Neopia that use an attacking formation, the Elite have an extensive history of world-class forwards.

Fans & Stadium: Named after The First To Rise, supporters of Siyana's Elite often show up at matches sporting a pair of homemade Faerie wings. For fans who aren't as artistic, they can purchase replica Faerie wings that bear the name of their favourite player on the back in Elite Fans, a store that sells official club merchandise. Siyana's Stadium of Light is located next-door and contains 35,000 seats. It is most famous for its colossal statue of Siyana in the lobby.

Weaknesses: Toughness, guarding

Team Mottos: The true meaning of strength can only be found in one's heart.

History: Named after the legendary gladiator and hero of Altador, Torakor, the Torakor Yooyu Team is known for their staunch defenders who rarely let an attacker slip past them. They are quite capable of scoring in bunches, though their real skill lies in the team's ability to hold the defensive line. The Minitheus Gladiators, their more successful rivals, and members of Torakor usually have heated arguments over who the "gladiator" name belongs to as Torakor was described as "The Gladiator" in the Book of Ages.

Fans & Stadium: Many supporters come out to games sporting small plastic swords and shields, while the more avid fans prefer to dress like Torakor himself. Torakor's Coliseum holds roughly 50,000 seats and has an extendable roof that can be pulled closed to provide relief from the sun.

League Overview

Being one of the newer nations to enter the yooyuball world, Brightvale has yet to achieve the level of international stardom that other leagues have. Nevertheless, they have numerous star players that are recognizable at an international level. With some of the most highly skilled technical players around, this league is quickly becoming one of the world's favourites as matches are often played like a game of chess, where strategy is preferred over sheer strength. Though many of the clubs employ a defensive formation, they generally don't rely on defending to win the game.

Style(s) of play:

  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Strategic (running plays and using strategies that requires a high level of skill)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low

League Revenue:

  • Medium

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 6
Highest ranking achieved: 5
Lowest ranking in history: 12
The league's tremendous rise in the rankings can be attributed to a handful of reasons. First of all, and probably most importantly, is the massive fan base within the nation and the rapidly growing number of spectators from outside Brightvale. Breaking into the top 5 leagues for the first time in 2010, the future looks bright for this small league. Their revenue also saw a dramatic increase throughout the years and big name athletes are finding themselves lured by the scenic countryside and rise in popularity.

Team Mottos: The bright light at the end of the tunnel? That's just us.

History: Unlike some of the other teams in the Brightvale league, the Brightvalers focus more on yooyuball, rather than their studies. Ironically enough, it was founded many years ago by a group of scholars who decided they needed to get out more and enjoy the outdoors. They soon found their true calling – yooyuball. On the field, Brightvalers have a long history of being able to adapt to any situation, from down to four players because of injury or losing by three goals. Their unique "quick-fix" solutions make them a tough team to face.

Fans & Stadium: The Bureau of the Brightvalers is a yooyuball arena that can hold 20,000 spectators. The seating runs around the field in a complete circle and a stained-glass dome stretches over the entire area. Brightvalers have a multitude of fans in Brightvale who enjoy coming to their games. The largest fan club is called "The Brights". They started a trend where every time "Squeaky" Tressif scores, they rub their shoes against the ground, creating a squeaking noise.

Team Mottos: For Hagan... and for Brightvale!

History: Founded by King Hagan, this team is fairly new to the yooyuball circuit. For that reason, they have yet to enjoy the level of success other teams in the Brightvale league have. While the addition of Hagan Supreme brought the league to an even five teams, many have criticized referees for being too lenient on the King's favourite club. King Hagan then ordered that all referees should come from outside of Brightvale, thus ending that issue. Hagan Supreme stands out in their league for their strong defensive (1 + 3) formation and have produced high quality defenders that have gone on to represent Brightvale in the Altador Cup.

Fans & Stadium: Although Hagan Supreme can say that they have the most famous fan in Brightvale (King Hagan), they have yet to establish any sort of identity with their fan base. Their games usually attract many neutrals so they do not receive a lot of vocal support during matches. On the other hand, their most famous fan is also the richest citizen in Brightvale. Hagan Stadium is the largest arena in Brightvale and seats roughly 50,000.

Team Mottos: We've crunched the numbers and it looks like a knowledgeable win for us!

History: It is said that if you have a question about yooyuball, Knowledge United can answer it. As the most successful team in Brightvale, United uses their extensive comprehension of the game to try to get the upper hand on their opponents. As a result of focussing on the basics and rules of yooyuball, the team tends to do poorly outside of Brightvale, where other squads around Neopia concentrate on innovation and new techniques. On the yooyuball field, their players are known for being able to perform the same technique as everyone else in their Brightvale league, except much better.

Fans & Stadium: Though Knowledge United has a lot of fans thanks to their success, their supporters sometimes admit that their matches aren't the most exciting things to watch and regularly hope for new strategies and plays. The Center of Knowledge, their home yooyuball field, is located in the east. Once in a while, free tickets are given out to those who can answer a set of trivia questions about Brightvale.

Team Mottos: We're the Motes that give our most!

History: Age is not a factor when it comes to Motes of Brightvale. While some say a few of the players are too old to be playing yooyuball, the Motes have proved these critics wrong by winning multiple league titles. Players at Motes are known for staying dedicated to their team, often denying transfers that would take them to a more successful club. Throughout its history, the team structure consisted of two of three older members that had more knowledge in yooyuball, but lacked energy and strength while the rest of the team were much younger players who had plenty of power but lacked experience. Players stay at the club for so long that once the older yooyuballers retired, the younger players had grown up by then and proceed to act as mentors to the new, younger members coming in.

Fans & Stadium: Their home arena, Motery Stadium, is located right next to Brightvale Motery (which makes the owner of the shop very happy, seeing as his profits double whenever there is a home game). At home matches, there is often a volunteer who dresses up as a mote and runs along the outside of the field, getting the crowd energized.

Team Mottos: When you face The Scholars, be prepared to earn a failing grade.

History: The Scholars have always had a unique way of recruiting yooyuball players for their team. Those who proved that they were the best at tryouts move on to the second stage where they sit down for a two-hour written test. Subjects include the history of yooyuball and rules, as well as an open-ended essay question. It has been argued that too many great players have been let go simply because they didn't earn a passing grade on the exam, but The Scholars refuse to admit anyone who hasn't scored a high mark into their squad.

Fans & Stadium: Center for Scholars is their home stadium, located in southern Brightvale. Visitors can purchase books and magazines in the small gift shop at the entrance. Their largest fan club, Scholarly Supporters, is actually based in Neopia Central and they frequently travel to the team's international matches.

League Overview

Notorious for being one of the most aggressive and ruthless leagues, Darigan Citadel is full of hard-hitting, no-nonsense yooyuball players that can dish out a hard tackle and take a few hits themselves. Though sports officials and referees have tried to clean up the games, many matches still see a ton of rules being broken and fouls committed left and right. Still, there's no denying that it's an interesting league to keep an eye out for. With fast paced action and non-stop drama, many international spectators compare the DC teams to watching an action movie. The domestic player's nonchalant attitude about "bending" the rules and throwing a few elbows into their opponents have garnered them a lot of fame, especially in the Altador Cup.

Style(s) of play:

  • Attacking (emphasis on creating scoring chances from all areas of the field)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)
  • Aggressive (hard tackles and rough tactics; also expect some "bending" of rules now and then)

General pace of the game:

  • Fast (the game is usually played in an "end to end" style where the yooyu can go from one half of the field to the other in mere seconds; players are often sprinting for the full 60 minutes)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • High

League Revenue:

  • Medium

Just when you think yooyuball fever has reached its highest point in Darigan Citadel, there are always more fans at the ready. With some of the most enthusiastic and vocal domestic supporters, this league's scores are always high in that department, which makes up for the low scores in other categories. Many critics have noted that if the clubs toned down their aggressive playing style, the league would be able to break into the top 10.

Team Mottos: Oh, come on! You call that "fast"? We'll show you.

History: Darigan Doom Club have an extensive history of having some of the fastest players in Neopia, able to get the yooyu and score within seconds of the opening whistle. The players are often smug and arrogant about their speed, running around their opponents in circles just to irritate them. While they don't score as often as other teams, it would take a miracle to be able to get the yooyu away from them, seeing as how they never stand still.

Fans & Stadium: There was a rumour a few years earlier that Darigan Dungeon, their home arena, was actually once used as a prison. The stories were probably begun due to the fact that the stadium has numerous cells lining the walls. Not known to be the cleanest stadium in Darigan Citadel, visitors are encouraged to bring their own snacks and drinks from home. In spite of the fact that Darigan Doom Club is very successful, they are virtually unknown in Neopia and have very few fans outside of Darigan Citadel.

Team Mottos: When you're up this high, be careful not to fall into the abyss...

History: Floating Citadel's playing style stands out from other teams in the Darigan Citadel league because they don't rely on brute force. Rather, they are more analytical and prefer to keep the yooyu in their possession for as long as possible. Their technical prowess is similar to teams seen in the Krawk Island league. Over the decades, the club has enjoyed great success, being the only yooyuball team in Darigan Citadel to win three consecutive league titles.

Fans & Stadium: Floating Citadel is the most popular team in the Darigan Citadel league and it is rumoured to be Lord Darigan's favourite team as well. Their home stadium is called Our Glorious Citadel, located in the far west. The yooyuball field itself is suspended by thick chains over some sort of dark liquid, though nobody knows for sure what it is...

History: Who knew Lord Kass liked yooyuball? Apparently, he enjoyed it so much that he forced Darigan Division to rename themselves Kass Division. On the field, they are well known for being equally as defensive as they are aggressive. Kass Division has an intense rivalry with Darigan Doom Club. Both teams usually break about 20 rules before halftime.

Fans & Stadium: Fans mostly include former Kass followers, but there are small pockets of supporters around Neopia. Their stadium, The Kass Dungeon (formerly known as The Darigan Dungeon), has a daunting atmosphere with metal bars running around the field, making visiting teams feel like they're in a cell.

Team Mottos: Don't worry. It'll all be over for you soon...

History: The early beginnings of Menace of the Sky is somewhat murky. No one really knows who began the club or when it was formed. It is estimated that they were created around the same time that Floating Citadel was, though many (probably biased) people argue it was formed earlier. The team considers Floating Citadel to be their closest rival, mainly due to the fact that both of their club names refer to the same thing.

Fans & Stadium: The aptly named Danger Chamber is the home stadium for the squad. It has a dingy, dark and dreary atmosphere, not to mention that the temperature always seems to be below freezing. Other than that, it's a suitable yooyuball field. While the team does have a sizeable amount of fans, they make nearly no noise during matches, preferring to sit quietly in their seats. The eerie silence can make visitors somewhat nervous.

Team Mottos: Bruise? What bruise? I'm pretty sure you had that BEFORE you went into the match...

History: The club has an extensive history of signing robotic yooyuball players from Virtupets Space Station where they would then be reprogrammed to "bend" the rules, be more aggressive and generally do whatever it takes to win. Though referees and other officials have received complaints from other teams, no measure has been taken to reduce their robot tampering. The Darigan Demons are known for their overly hard-hitting players and less than clean tactics. That being said, the club is at the bottom of the table in terms of the number of league titles won.

Fans & Stadium: As with all yooyuball teams in the Darigan Citadel league, most fans are Darigan themselves. Actually, many yooyuball spectators in Darigan Citadel support multiple teams, so it's hard to estimate the number of fans. The Dark Field is their home yooyuball stadium. Instead of having electricity, massive chandeliers with thousands of candles are lit above the yooyuball field.

League Overview

Sure, Faerieland may not have the best track record in the Altador Cup and on an international level, but domestically, it's one of the best leagues in Neopia. This league has been around for a while now, and many famous yooyuballers are already signing up with FL clubs and making an impact. Garnering attention from the four corners of the world, Faerieland has action, suspense, drama – you name it! Many new yooyuball spectators often skip the FL league, thinking that the level play is subpar (like their national team). It comes as a huge surprise then when you get hooked into watching this exciting league.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • Very high

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 4
Highest ranking achieved: 2
Lowest ranking in history: 8
As one of the richest leagues in the world, many of the Faerieland clubs have the means to lure talented yooyuballers to their side, providing some international flavour for the home fans. Regardless of their Altador Cup performance, pretty much everyone's a yooyuball fan over there and the demand for more sports coverage is rising. While Faerieland's power ranking score usually suffers due to lower skill level, the critics are optimistic about this league and this nation proves that it can be a yooyuball power – if only at the national level.

Team Mottos: There's no way you're getting past us. If you do, then you're probably dreaming!

History: Cirrus United is the typical, old-school Faerieland yooyuball team that believes in a powerful defence and has minimal attacking options. They don't usually score but when they do it's most likely due to a mistake made by the other team. Their playing style consists of very little possession, focusing on keeping the yooyu out of their half. The team is also notable in the Faerieland league for having the least transfers made each year.

Fans & Stadium: Their rivals, The Alkenore Line-Up, built their stadium in a shape of a cloud, which was one of the ideas that Cirrus United had for their arena. While they wanted to build a stadium to honour their beloved mascot, Cirrus, they thought it would be a little bit tacky. They eventually settled on an outdoor yooyuball field with an extendable roof that looks like a blanket of clouds. Cirrus United has large fan bases outside of Faerieland, in addition to their local supporters. There is a fan club in Maraqua called "Underwater Cirrus", and one in Haunted Woods called "Scary Cirrus Supporters".

Team Mottos: Faeries unite! Get ready to take flight!

History: The Faeries of Faerieland are perhaps most famous for the way they work as a single entity, moving as a team and being supportive of each other. Players are taught to respect all of the teams they play against, although there could be one exception. There has been a long historic rivalry between Faeries of Faerieland and Jhudora's Judgement. You could even say that they are reflections of each other. The Faeries value honest play and victories earned through hard work, whereas... well, let's just say the two groups don't see eye to eye on many issues.

Fans & Stadium: This team is the most popular yooyuball squad in Faerieland and has the largest fan base there. Supporters are easy to spot in a crowd due to the fact that they wear giant, sparkly wings. Each month, The Faerie-Dome is transformed and redecorated to represent different faeries, such as water, light, fire and air. The Faerie-Dome ranks highly on Neopia's List of "Most Exiting Stadiums for Fans".

Team Mottos: You truly win only if you give 110% and play with sincerity.

History: Though they have yet to win a league title, Fyora's Faeries demonstrates what it means to play with honesty and fairness. The team always has the least amount of fouls at the end of the season compared to other squads. There is a strong rivalry with Jhudora's Judgement, mostly because the Faeries want to prove that yooyuball can be won without any dirty tactics. Fyora's Faeries have kept the same formation throughout their history, opting for a defensive (1 + 3) formation.

Fans & Stadium: Located in the heart of Faerie City, Fyora's Faeries has many fans that continuously follow the team's matches despite their lack of trophies. The fans are described as being just as nice as the players on the team, never shouting any harsh words or booing opposing players. Their stadium, Field of Fyora, looks like a miniature pink palace from the outside and can hold 20,000 supporters.

Team Mottos: Order in the court! The verdict is? The Judgement wins.

History: Jhudora's Judgement (formerly known as Faerie Judgement) didn't always start out as the yooyuball champions that they are today. A while back, Jhudora revamped the team, throwing out players of poor quality (or those she didn't like) and inviting less savoury characters to join, attracting players from Haunted Woods and Darigan Citadel. Season after season, the squad always ranks high for teams with the most fouls. In spite of this, the team has been praised for bringing a more attacking style of yooyuball to Faerieland.

Fans & Stadium: Though Jhudora's Judgement doesn't have a huge following in Faerieland (in fact, they have the fewest fans in the Faerieland league), the story is different elsewhere. In Darigan Citadel, the largest fan club is "DC for Jhudora" and they refer to the players as "judges". Their home stadium is Jhudora's Courtroom, where the match referee sits in the judge's chair at the front of the field and fans sit on opposite sides of the field, cheering on their team.

Team Mottos: All for one and won for Alkenore!

History: The Alkenore Line-Up is definitely a team that has its ups and downs. When Alkenore was first established, it performed admirably, winning three league titles in its first decade. However, every year during the transfer window many of the team's top players get traded to other leagues and Alkenore Line-Up starts to fade in terms of yooyuball victories and championship titles. Eventually, members in the team become more experienced or they sign new players, causing them to win more of their games. Many critics have noted that if this yooyuball squad can hang on to its players and keep the same roster, they could be one of the best teams in Neopia.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium, Field of Clouds, is located in northern Faerieland. The building is quite noticeable since it's shaped like a giant, fluffy cloud (much to the annoyance of Cirrus United). Though The Alkenore Line-Up has a loyal (and moderately sized) fan base, they often show frustration in the squad's inability to maintain their success through two consecutive seasons.

League Overview

The Haunted Woods league can be described in one word: fun. Seeing as how their season takes place during September and October, the Halloween festivities along with candy-crazed yooyuball fans themselves are quite entertaining. This league has everything you can possibly want, from strong rivalries (especially between the Northwood Were-Pets and Southeast Vampires), to underdog clubs. Although as a whole the league is still rough around the edges and haven't been able to lay claim to any major yooyuball athletes, it's still exciting to watch the contests draw out.

Style(s) of play:

  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Spectators and critics thoroughly enjoy each season in the Haunted Woods league, but the major problem is the lack of revenue. Ticket sales are constantly decreasing and with more empty seats, coaches and managers are finding their wallets a bit empty during transfer season. Still, as their revenue decreases every year, the league's overall skill level is increasing, thank to the international success of the HW team. Some of these yooyuball veterans have sponsored the construction of multiple youth academies across the nation so we'll be expecting a large supply of young players in the future.

Team Mottos: We'll show you how to have a ghostly good time!

History: Haunted Wood Spectres is one of the newer yooyuball teams in the league, though that doesn't stop them from winning several championship titles. Many critics have pointed out that they could potentially be the team to beat and in the future, they could even be at the top of the league table in terms of how many titles they've won. For now, this new team is working hard to establish themselves as a top squad in Neopia. Their playing style includes short, quick passes and their main strategy is to create holes in their opponent's defence.

Fans & Stadium: Though they have a small fan base, their supporters are extremely energetic and loud during matches, chanting the players' names and beating on the giant drums they bring with them to every game. They do have a moderate fan base in The Lost Desert, with a club called "Desert Spectres" following all of their fixtures. Stadium of Spirits holds roughly 10,000 fans. The lobby contains stores selling official team merchandise and snack shops that sell gummy rats and eye candies.

Relying on their sheer strength and size, they intimidate even the best of yooyuballers with their forceful tactics. Though formed around the same time as The Phantom Nightmares, nearly all fans consider Southeast Vampires to be their main rivals. Their simple uniforms have changed very little throughout time – torn pants and an armband with their crest, a shadow of a howling werelupe in front of a full moon.

Fans & Stadium: Fans typically come to matches wearing official Were-Pets armbands and sporting wolf ears. The Were-Pets have a large fan base in Darigan Citadel as well, mostly due to their "in your face" playing style. Full Moon Arena, their home stadium, usually functions as an indoor yooyuball field. However, they open the roof up when there is a full moon.

Team Mottos: We're sure that you'll find playing against us to be a little draining...

History: As the only team with a defensive (1 + 3) formation, Southeast Vampires are known for their line of defenders, often referred to as "The Vampire Wall" by their opponents. Their playing style is truly unique and quite entertaining to watch. While they have tactics of their own, they are best known for their "Mimic" play. Knowing that most teams play with a set strategy, the Vampires take advantage of this by mimicking them and using their own tactics against them. Not only that, the Vampires have perfected this "tactic robbery" to such an extent that whenever the opposing team moves, the Vampires move in unison, making it look like a mirror image.

Fans & Stadium: As their name suggests, the club is based in the southeast of Haunted Woods, near the Haunted House. Their stadium is called Vampire Theatre is one of the larger stadiums, able to hold 30,000 fans. The inside looks like a regal opera house, with the yooyuball field taking center stage. The largest supporter group is called "Fan-pires" and they actually have a little shop that sells black capes with player names stitched in the back instead of jerseys.

History: The Candy Corn Crew was formed by a bunch of trick-or-treaters one Halloween night. With a love for yooyuball that is only rivalled by their love for candy and chocolate, the group of friends decided to combine the two. Despite producing a young group of players every season, they haven't had any real success compared to the other teams in the Haunted Woods league. They usually start the game off with fast passing and a lot of energy, but by halftime, their sugar rush declines and they become more sluggish. Focusing more on having fun than actually winning, The Candy Corn Crew has only claimed a handful of titles. Many suspect that if they put more effort into strategies and their techniques, they have the potential to become one of the greatest yooyuball teams in Haunted Woods.

Fans & Stadium: No matter how many league titles they win or lose, The Candy Corn Crew has a lot of fans that enjoy watching them play (at least in the first half of the match). Whenever the Crew scores a goal at home in Toffee Tower arena, twenty huge cannons placed around the field shoots candies and other treats into the crowd.

Team Mottos: Losing to us is not a nightmare...it's a reality.

History: The Phantom Nightmares have enjoyed great success in the Haunted Woods league, winning the most championship titles so far. However, most of these titles were won in their early days. As the trophies and league titles came pouring in, so did high expectations and the pressure to win was massive. Because of this, the Nightmares stepped up their training regime, practicing six days a week for eleven hours a day. Their star players soon began to ask for transfers and the club had difficulty recruiting new members since many were scared off by the gruelling schedule. Things have gotten a bit easier – five training days, 10 hours each.

Fans & Stadium: Fans for The Phantom Nightmares used to flock to games in great numbers, but as the team's glory days are behind them, supporters are dwindling as well. The largest support club in Haunted Woods, "Fans for Phantoms", remain loyal to their team and are a constant presence in the front rows of the stadium. Located in the northern part of The Deserted Fairground, Stadium of Ghosts contains many training facilities and public yooyuball fields open for anyone's use. There are a lot of people who think that the stadium is haunted by the ghosts of former Phantom players.

League Overview

Being one of the newer leagues is always hard, especially since everyone else already has an established fan base, and expectations are always high to perform. Kiko Lake is not only one of the newest leagues but also one of the smallest. With a "laid-back" style of yooyuball, many spectators find themselves on the fence. On one hand, the slow and meticulous attention to passing is a turnoff for some who crave more fast-paced action. That being said, the KL league seems to have acquired an unwanted, and slightly negative description of being a "retirement home" for older athletes.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low

League Revenue:

  • Very low

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 16
Highest ranking achieved: 15
Lowest ranking in history: 17
The annual power rankings are always hard on this small league as they usually finish at the very bottom. With few "big name" players on the club rosters, ticket sales must remain at rock bottom prices in order to be sold. As with smaller or younger leagues, revenue is very low but many do predict to see a change. Yooyuball as a sport is gaining momentum in this small nation, and critics believe that eventually KL will shake off its "retirement" league status.

Team Mottos: We'll see you on the frontlines!

History: As the most successive team in the league, Front Shore United have consistently developed many key players for the international Kiko Lake team. The team has gone through many formation changes, initially starting with an attacking (3 + 1) set-up. However, this didn't last too long as defenders were usually smaller in size and had tough times keeping up with the opposing team's forwards. Switching to a defensive (1 + 3) set-up left a huge gap in the number of goals. Front Shore finally settled with a balanced (2 + 2) formation and has never looked back. The team is probably most notable for the way they battle back whenever they're a few goals down. In one famous match against Lake Stars, they fought their way to win after being down at half-time by seven goals.

Fans & Stadium: Front Shore United enjoy a large fan base in Kiko Lake. For friendly matches outside of Kiko Lake, there is a travelling fan club called "Fans on the Frontline" who do their best to provide vocal support for their club. The Front Field is a relatively new stadium, located in the west of Kiko Lake. Less than a decade old, it was built after their previous arena was too small to fit the number of fans that showed up to their matches.

Team Mottos: Creatures for the win!

History: Kiko Creatures are known more for their strong defenders than their forwards. This often creates a hole in scoring, but the squad can scrap a win even if they've only scored once. The Creatures are recognized as having some of the strongest goalkeepers in Kiko Lake history, producing many fine players for their national team. As part of their training regime, goalkeepers stand in net for 300 penalty shots taken by their team members and save as many as they can.

Fans & Stadium: Having garnered a lot of international attention due to their skilful defenders, the Creatures have a lot of supporters around Neopia and in their own land. A lot of fans wear hats shaped like Kikos during matches, to show that they're one of the "Creatures". Their home arena, Stadium of the Kikos, is a building that is shaped like a Kiko and is located in eastern Kiko Lake.

Team Mottos: When you're up against the Crew, get ready for a fight.

History: Kiko Crew hasn't had the greatest time on the yooyuball circuit, but with a new board of directors taking over, the Crew have revamped their playing style and used their new funding to purchase world-class players. Critics have already seen improvements, but only time will tell whether or not this change will be truly beneficial to the club. As for their playing style, Kiko Crew has a balanced (2 + 2) formation, but focuses on strong defensive plays. Their defenders are not usually called upon to score often, leaving the forwards alone to take on most of the attacking plays.

Fans & Stadium: The Crew's Place, their home stadium, is located in the deep northern region of Kiko Lake and seats roughly 5000 fans. Being based in the forest and away from the main port, they don't have a lot of fans yet. The few supporters they do have are mostly based in Kiko Lake. They usually bring huge banners with the words "Join the Crew!" that they suspend from the rafters.

Team Mottos: Not only are we experts at making furniture, but we're great at yooyuball too!

History: Kiko Karpenters Guild was formed by the owner of Kiko Lake Carpentry, who is a huge yooyuball fanatic. Having won four league titles in less than ten years, many are keeping an eye out on this team to see whether or not their success can continue. If it does, they have the makings to be one of the greatest Kiko Lake yooyuball teams. The Karpenters is a defensive yooyuball team, but that doesn't mean they don't score often. Their main method is to use a forward as one of the three defenders, which not only gives the back line more strength, but also increases their scoring chances.

Fans & Stadium: Being the newest team in the Kiko Lake league, the Karpenters have a moderate fan base, mostly those who know the store owner. The team is also well-known around Neopia thanks to the number of people who shop at the store. Their yooyuball stadium, Home of the Karpenters, is situated next to Kiko Lake Carpentry. It's a relatively smaller arena, holding approximately 3000 fans.

Team Mottos: Each of us is but one point of Lake Star.

History: Despite being one of the newer teams in the league, Lake Stars have already proved that they can contend with older, established squads. Mixing speed and strength, they are quite capable of staging a strong counterattack. Though they use a defensive (1 + 3) formation, defenders are expected to score goals as well.

Fans & Stadium: Newer squads usually start out with a small number of supporters, but the buzz surrounding Lake Stars was so positive that they actually have one of the larger fan bases. The Star Arena (or the "Star-ena" as it's referred to by the fans) is their home field. It seats approximately 15,000.

League Overview

As one of the best leagues in the Neopia, Krawk Island has always been at the forefront of the yooyuballing sports world and continues to be one of the most watched as well. A combination of well-known local players (like Soley and Hale), along with numerous international stars, the clubs in KI have fan bases from Tyrannia to Kreludor. Each season proves to be an exhilarating battle between each club and the fast-paced action is a major draw for any sports fan. Unlike many nations who have successful leagues but horrible Altador Cup campaigns, Krawk Island has tasted success on the international level as well.

Style(s) of play:

  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Strategic (running plays and using strategies that requires a high level of skill)
  • Attacking (emphasis on creating scoring chances from all areas of the field)

General pace of the game:

  • Fast (the game is usually played in an "end to end" style where the yooyu can go from one half of the field to the other in mere seconds; players are often sprinting for the full 60 minutes)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • High

League Revenue:

  • Very high

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 2
Highest ranking achieved: 1
Lowest ranking in history: 5
Krawk Island is one of the few leagues where their revenue score comes in at a perfect 10/10. This is in large part due to the yooyuball fans both within the nation and around Neopia who travel long distances to see their favourite clubs play. This league is known for making history, so when the 2009 transfer season came around, some critics weren't that surprised when the single largest and most expensive transfer was made for a Shenkuu player. If you've got the Neopoints, why not spend it?

Team Mottos: We are Black Sail Pirates and we will show no mercy.

History: Most notable for their attacking (3 + 1) line-up, Black Sail Pirates are famous for their complete domination when it comes to scoring goals. They are consistently ranked as being one of the top teams in Neopia, along with their rivals from Krawk Island, Scarblade Society. What makes them such a tricky team to play against is that they rarely use the same strategy twice, forcing their opponents into a state of unease.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium always places high on "Neopia's most unique yooyuball stadiums". The yooyuball field is actually on a colossal pirate ship that is so large, it has enough room for 9000 spectators on the main deck. There are multiple lower decks with TV screens where fans who didn't get premium tickets can sit and watch the match. During the match, the ship sails around Krawk Island. They also have a stadium on land, called Home of Black Sails that seats roughly 20,000 spectators. The club has a large number of fans who are exceptionally loyal to their team. Supporters of the squad can be easily spotted, as they usually wear pirate hats that bear the team's symbol of a pirate ship with ripped sails.

Team Mottos: If you aren't entertained, then we aren't doing our job!

History: Known for their entertaining playing style and youth, the Lagooners are notorious for the way they nurture talent in their squad. They adhere to the belief that everyone has a hidden potential that is waiting to be unlocked. On the field, they are very technical and prefer to analyze every possibility before making a pass. They aren't really associated with having a set of strategies, preferring to act on the spur-of-the-moment.

Fans & Stadium: While the Lagooners have a large fan base in Krawk Island, they are known to be quite harsh and critical at times, even to the point where they would boo at their own players if they perform poorly. Regardless, fans are extremely loyal to the club and their criticism seems to have decreased lately. Loch Stadium is most recognizable for the moat that surrounds the building with wooden bridges lowered for fans to cross over whenever there's a match.

Team Mottos: Deck Ball? Pshh. These Pawkeets play yooyuball.

History: Though being one of the older yooyuball teams in Krawk Island, Pawkeet Plunderers are never considered to be major contenders for the league title. This is probably due to the fact that many of the other teams focus on attacking and scoring goals. The Plunderers are content with sitting back, leading to many feuds between the lone forward and the multiple defenders. Several of their plays and strategies revolve around getting the yooyu back into their possession, where they would try to keep hold of it for as long as possible. The defenders never venture outside of their own half, leaving the center forward without any support.

Fans & Stadium: Pawkeet Plunderers have a sizeable fan base, mostly owing to their longevity rather than their limited success. The Plunderer's Bay is their home yooyuball field and can hold about 20,000 spectators. During matches, huge beach balloons in the shape of a Pawkeet are tossed around in the crowd.

Team Mottos: You must be very brave to challenge us... or very foolish.

History: Rumoured to have been formed by Scarblade himself in order to increase his own wealth, this yooyuball team upholds the tradition by wearing his signature long, dark-red trench coat. Today, just as it was in the olden times, players would attach their yooyuball slingers at their waist, much like a sword. Scarblade Society has an aggressive yet elegant technique, with players learning how to move their slingers similar to attacking sword. As being one of the original five national clubs, the Society has won the most league titles so far. Their biggest rivals are the Black Sail Pirates and matches between them are said to be the dirtiest games in all of Neopia, with fouls happening every other minute. Legend tells of a historic match where both teams replaced their slingers with actual cutlasses.

Fans & Stadium: The yooyuball club has a vast fan base throughout Neopia. Fan clubs include The Red Coat Boys, Scarbladers and Scarblade Society's Society. Their stadium, Scarblade Sanctum, houses about 50,000 sports fans. It is rumoured that a portion of Captain Scarblade's treasure was hidden beneath the field.

Team Mottos: When you play against the Captains, you'll be walking the plank.

History: Just because Silver Cutlass Captains has a defensive (1 + 3) formation, doesn't mean they spend all of their time defending. The squad's defenders not only guard, but also act as second strikers, assisting the center forward in attacking plays. They're described as being one of the cleanest teams in Krawk Island, rarely fouling their opponents. The Captains generally score plenty of goals, but have yet to find their momentum in the Krawk Island league, enjoying limited success and are often overshadowed by the other teams.

Fans & Stadium: Silver Cutlass Captains has a fairly large fan base in Krawk Island, thanks to the fact that it's located near The Academy. After hitting record low attendance at matches, a newer (and less dingy) stadium was constructed. The Captain's Ship holds 25,000 seats, which are usually all filled during home games. International supporter clubs include Kreludor's "Captains on the Moon" and Faerieland's "Silver Faeries".

League Overview

Even in outer space, yooyuball is the hottest sport since gormball and the most popular thing since Usuki dolls. Kreludor has fully embraced Neopia's favourite pastime with open arms and this league has catapulted into stardom. With some of the most well-known players around, this league has seen some great athletes grace the club rosters. In general, Kreludor has one of the more established leagues around, and the teams continue to push the limits of the game. Mixing traditional methods with new playing styles, yooyuball is evolving as a sport and these KD clubs have many tricks up their sleeves when they face off against other league clubs from Neopia.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • Very Low

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 7
Highest ranking achieved: 6
Lowest ranking in history: 11
The fan base in Kreludor is high and critics always look favourably upon this league but the downfall of their power rankings has always been their revenue. In the 2009-2010 season, their revenue score clocked in at a disappointing 2.3 out of 10, a slight decrease from the year before. With the Kreludan economy in shambles and many Neopian-based fans unwilling to take the trip out to outer space to see teams play, tickets remain unsold and team souvenirs line the shelves untouched. However, change may be on the horizon as the official KD yooyuball council has launched a tourism campaign called "Welcome to Kreludor!"

Team Mottos: The only place our opponents will be flying to is down towards the bottom of the table.

History: As the only team in the Kreludan league with an attacking (3 + 1) formation, D-Fying Gravity's matches are never short on goals and excitement. Their strategy is to score as much as possible and worry about the defence later. Most of the time, they win due to the fact that they've scored so many goals so it doesn't matter that their defence is much weaker than their opponent's. While criticized for focussing too much on only one aspect of yooyuball, D-Fying Gravity has had a lot of success with their playing style.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium is Free Fall Arena and like many others in Kreludor, contains a "no gravity" yooyuball field (though it's not used for matches). D-Fying Gravity has a massive amount of supporters in Kreludor and around Neopia, thanks to their thrilling approach to yooyuball. A few places where the team doesn't have a lot of fans? Mostly places like Krawk Island, Shenkuu and The Lost Desert, where the technical and strategic aspects of the game are more emphasized and appreciated.

Team Mottos: The sky? What a laughable limit.

History: Galactic Yooyus ranks among the top yooyuball teams in Neopia. Not only are they a high-scoring powerhouse, but their defence has shown itself to be consistent from season to season. Historically, the only real problem lies in their excessive injury woes and lack of stamina which prevents the team from winning multiple league titles back to back. Their playing style involves many long passes from one half of the field to the other, which reduces any unnecessary runs.

Fans & Stadium: As one of the oldest teams in the Kreludan league, Galactic Yooyus have a large fan base. Whenever the home team scores in Galactic Yooyuball Sports Arena, supporters throw a handful of glitter and paper stars onto the field. The stadium recently finished construction to expand the arena, which now contains a main field for matches and smaller fields for training.

History: Kreludan Adventurers is the most successful yooyuball team in Kreludor to date. Founded by a traveller who crashed while exploring space, the Adventurers have been all over Neopia learning different yooyuball techniques. Their core strength is in their ability to score goals from any point of the field, whether it's close to the net or from their own half. As a way of honouring their founder from many years ago, players don a uniform that is similar to a space suit. Their slingers are formed from a compound that is almost weightless and their equipment weighs less than a feather.

Fans & Stadium: The club has a very vocal fan base that do their best to accompany their team to all of their matches. Their home ground is Adventure Arena, a newly built stadium that seats 23,000 and features a zero gravity playing field.

Team Mottos: Kreludor Meteorites – a piece of paradise in space.

History: A common misconception is that Kreludor Meteorites was formed in Kreludor. The club was actually founded in Mystery Island after a group of tourists visited Kreludor and one of the sightseers, who was a yooyuball fanatic, decided to form a team based on the meteorites he had purchased as a souvenir. After hearing about this, the officials in the Kreludan yooyuball league extended an invitation for them to be relocated to Kreludor.

Fans & Stadium: The Meteorites' home stadium is called Meteorite Isle and is decorated to look like the jungles of Mystery Island, making it a favourite destination for many MI yooyuball fans. Capable of holding 10,000 spectators, the stadium has an artificial "sun" and simulated clouds to make it seem as if the day is turning into night. The squad has a huge fan base in Mystery Island but has fewer fans in their new land.

History: If there was one team in Kreludor's yooyuball league that nobody bets for in new season, it's Spacebounded. Whereas other teams focus purely on defence (see D-Fying Gravity, Kreludor), this team is all about the defence and has little thought for anything else. Sometimes, Spacebounded manages to surprise its fans, the critics and their opponents by pulling together a string of victories and ultimately taking the league title. This has happened very few times, however.

Fans & Stadium: Spacebounded has a small fan base in their land and are virtually unheard of outside of Kreludor. Still, the supporters they do have are loyal and do their best to cheer their team on. Their stadium, Universe Yooyuball Field, is the smallest in Kreludor, holding 4000 seats.

League Overview

Considered to be one of the best (if not the best) leagues in Neopia, Lost Desert is the place where every aspiring yooyuball athlete dreams of playing. With some of the top ranked clubs around the world, this is the birthplace of the "technical" yooyuball playing style. Numerous youth academies dot the landscape, with more famous ones located in northern Sakhmet and Qasala City. These youth systems are responsible for the upbringing of many famous players, like Cayle and Heggle. The international representation is quite high, as many clubs sign foreign players from all over Neopia. As a major presence both in the national leagues and the Altador Cup, Lost Desert continues to live up to everyone's expectations of being a powerhouse in both regards.

Style(s) of play:

  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Strategic (running plays and using strategies that requires a high level of skill)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

General pace of the game:

  • Fast (the game is usually played in an "end to end" style where the yooyu can go from one half of the field to the other in mere seconds; players are often sprinting for the full 60 minutes)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • High

League Revenue:

  • Very high

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 1
Highest ranking achieved: 1
Lowest ranking in history: 3
With near perfect scores across the board, Lost Desert always ranks high in the annual power rankings. However, a slip to third (their lowest ranking to date) may signal a change. As with many leagues, the economy is hitting the yooyuball world hard and though fans are still purchasing tickets in high numbers, the premium tickets and souvenir shops remain untouched. Still, critics cite Lost Desert as being one of the most entertaining and exciting leagues to watch.

Team Mottos: Skill and teamwork shine brighter than gold.

History: As the legend goes, Golden Pharaohs was founded by one of King Coltzan's ancestor and was his majesty's favourite yooyuball team. With this kind of attention and many expecting great things from the club, the Pharaohs have surely earned their place as being one of the greatest clubs in yooyuball history. Back in ancient times, the squad consisted of royalty and their close friends and family members. Today, the Golden Pharaohs' lay claim to many of yooyuball "royalty", such as Vickles and Soley. Known for the way they work as a single unit, the Pharaohs play a style described as being "electric yet smooth".

Fans & Stadium: Due to their success, they have large support groups all over Neopia. In Faerieland, their largest fan club is called The Pharaoh's Faeries and in Neopia Central, there's Pharoah Phanboys. The Golden Geb, their home arena, is a massive ancient pyramid that seats 75,000.

Team Mottos: The pyramids weren't built in an hour, but the Patriots can win in one.

History: Pyramid Patriots was one of the first yooyuball teams formed in The Lost Desert and in their long history, they've reached not only great success but also fell to the bottom of the table. The biggest factor in their erratic playing seems to be nerves and pressure to perform well. The same problems seem to plague each and every new member that joins this team. The Patriots have yet to unlock their true potential but when they do, it's possible that they could become one of the greatest exports of The Lost Desert.

Fans & Stadium: Able to hold 27,000 spectators, The Desert Patriot is a giant sphinx that houses their home yooyuball field. The building is so enormous that the sports facilities only take up half of its capacity. The rest is usually filled with souvenir shops and food stalls that are usually crowded with customers whenever there's a game. Pyramid Patriots have a large fan base and their games attract a large number of supporters from all of over Neopia, making tickets very hard to come by.

Team Mottos: The brightest jewel in The Lost Desert's crown.

History: Traditionally, Qasala City and Sakhmet Union have always had a strong rivalry with each other. Based in opposite sides of The Lost Desert, the yooyuball team of Qasala City has won more than double the amount of league titles than their adversaries. Nonetheless, matches between the two clubs are always a special occasion with both sides pulling out their secret weapons and strategies. The Qasala City team is considered to be one of the oldest clubs in The Lost Desert, second only to the Golden Pharaohs.

Fans & Stadium: Fans can be unruly and extremely loud at times, especially during derbies against Sakhmet Union. When playing against other teams, fans are less wild but are still passionate about supporting their team, singing "Qasala City, Jewel of the South" for most of the match. Most, if not all, of their fans in The Lost Desert have Qasalan backgrounds. Their home stadium, Qasalan Center, is located in the heart of the city, surrounded by many shops that sell jerseys, banners and other official team merchandise.

Team Mottos: Sakhmet City – where legends are made and immortals are born.

History: Currently at the bottom of The Lost Desert yooyuball league in terms of championship title wins, Sakhmet Union is the only team to not have won any seasons back to back. With such a poor history in yooyuball (which is something their rivals, Qasala City, like to point out), it's no wonder that one of the wealthiest citizen in Sakhmet City left a large portion of his fortune to the club. With new funding, the Sakhmet City yooyuball team was able to afford better players and hire more experienced coaches. It looks like the club is about to write a new chapter in their yooyuball history.

Fans & Stadium: The team has a large number of fans in their hometown of Sakhmet, but due to their lack of success, they have very little followers outside of The Lost Desert. Their home stadium is located within the walls of Sakhmet City, near the Food Stall. Sakhmet Yooyuball Field holds approximately 25,000 seats and from the air, the building looks like a Selket.

Team Mottos: The great Anubis knows no fear.

History: The Anubis Allegiance, like most of the teams in The Lost Desert, are a technical squad that excels in passing and strategic thinking. Being the only defensive (1 + 3) team in the league, the Allegiance has a long history of producing world-class defenders and goalkeepers. Their playing style is more focussed on the defenders moving the yooyu up the field, instead of having the single forward do the job. Most of their strategies involve a chain of one-touch passing to create empty spaces in front of the net.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium is quite recognizable and stands out in the north-western region of The Lost Desert. The Temple of Anubis was built to look like a giant Anubis petpet. Although it is one of the smaller yooyuball facilities (holding roughly 20,000 seats), it contains many restaurants in the lobby. The Anubis Allegiance has a medium-sized fan base in The Lost Desert, with most of their supporters coming from different parts of the desert region. For home games, it is customary for fans to sing the official theme song, "Our Great Anubis", at the beginning of the match.

League Overview

Watching these teams in action, you'd never suspect that that the Maraquan league is one of the newer ones. Some of the clubs are already being described as "powerhouse" teams, both locally and on an international level as well. Though the majority of the clubs consists of local players that aren't well known outside of the nation, many people are turning their attention to this small league. Not known for being a technical league, most of the clubs are still scrappy and rough around the edges, utilizing a more aggressive style of play.

Style(s) of play:

  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

Relatively speaking, Maraqua's revenue has always been low but with recent successful campaigns in the Altador Cup (along with Elon Hughlis' larger-than-life attitude enticing viewers to tune in to watch his temper tantrums), they've gained a multitude of international fans that have flocked to the underwater stadiums. Critics reviews of the MQ seasons are generally positive, but many have stated that they wished to see more "polished" teams in the future.

Team Mottos: Trust us, it's not safe to go into the water yet.

History: As their club's name suggests, Arkmite Attackers is a team that uses a pure attacking formation, with three forwards and one defender. In their first few seasons, the Arkmites did not do very well, finishing well off the lead. Despite the fact that they score in large numbers, the team had not signed a defender capable of taking on more than one forward at a time. Things changed when the club took on an additional defender to replace one of the forwards. While still using a 3 + 1 formation, they can instantly switch to a 2 + 2 formation to help the lone defender. Today, they try to sign players that can work as both defender and attacker.

Fans & Stadium: At matches, fans usually wear hats in the shape of Arkmites and they like to blow bubbles towards the field whenever a member of their team scores. The player that scored would often try to pop as many bubbles as he or she can, much to the delight of the crowd. Field of Arkmites is their home stadium and is shaped like a giant Arkmite. There is a special gift shop near the entrance where fans can purchase team plushies, Arkmite hats and electric bubble blowing machines.

Team Mottos: When you play against Kelp, be careful not to get tangled.

History: With a defensive (1 + 3) formation, Kelp United can keep many of the best yooyuball players from ever reaching the net. Most of their plays don't focus on attacking, so they won't score in large numbers but they can regain possession of the yooyu in record time. Kelp is their major sponsor so the team receives a large percentage of their funding from the restaurant, making them the wealthiest club in Maraqua.

Fans & Stadium: Though they have many championship titles to their name, Kelp United has much fewer fans than any other team in Maraqua. Perhaps it's due to their unexciting style of play, but whatever the reason is, their ticket sales are the lowest in the league. The small amounts of supporters they do have are usually customers of the Kelp restaurant. Their home stadium, Sea of Kelp, is located near the restaurant and can hold roughly 18,000 spectators.

Team Mottos: The best effort exceeds the best player.

History: As one of the original yooyuball squads in Maraqua, it has been a long time since they have tasted any real sense of glory. Over time, their talent pool has decreased, which resulted in fewer matches won. While many have criticized their playing style as being "too individualized" and that they needed "more teamwork", their tactics haven't changed much since their inception. However, with more yooyuball players coming to Maraqua, it seems hopeful that Maractite Field have a chance at winning the national league in the future.

Fans & Stadium: Though relentlessly mocked and ridiculed by other teams as being a dreadful yooyuball squad, Maractite Field still has a strong fan base. Fans of the team are extremely loyal, though they can get frustrated by the lack of success. However, they are extremely vocal and will cheer until the final minutes of the game. Their home stadium (also called Maractite Field) seats 10,000 and have many souvenir shops that cater to the fans.

Team Mottos: The Marauders rule the waters. You'll find no warm welcome here...

History: Maraquan Marauders has been the home of many world-famous players and as such, has had the most success in the Maraqua yooyuball league. Their secret to winning is focusing on a combination of scoring and acquiring players who can play outside of their roles, whether it's a defensive forward or an attacking defender. Though the club is fairly new, it is already ranked as being one of the best yooyuball teams.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium, Maraqua Sports Arena, looks like it's encased in a giant bubble underwater. There's a special dock floating over Maraqua where submarines are stationed. Whenever there's a game, it would take spectators down and enter the oxygen rich "bubble". Thanks to the beautiful underwater atmosphere, tickets for matches are always sold quickly. Maraquan Marauders have a lot of fans from all over Neopia, though their largest fan base remains in their own land.

Team Mottos: The Underwater Revolution starts right now!

History: Underwater Revolution has been edging closer and closer to their rivals, Maraquan Marauders, in terms of championship titles for some time now. Though they don't usually sign many big names in yooyuball, they are able to put out a consistent squad each season. Using a balanced (2 + 2) formation, the squad's focus is on accurate passing and marking their opponents' forwards. As with most of the other teams in the Maraquan league, their matches aren't the most entertaining to watch, but they stick to the basics and try to win games which has proved to be successful for them so far.

Fans & Stadium: The Revolutionary Arena is located near Maraquan Battledome Items, who is one of the club's sponsors. Able to hold approximately 15,000 fans, the building is shaped like a spiral sea shell and contains two yooyuball fields. Underwater Revolution has a large fan base in Maraqua. Though not counted among Neopia's best teams, they do have many international fans as well.

League Overview

In Meridell, it's all about the home-grown talent as many teams are dominated by local players. Much like the Altadorian league, the clubs here focus on the "good old days" of yooyuball, focussing on traditional methods of scoring and defending, rather than coming up with new strategies. That' not to say that this is a boring league! All of the clubs here are renowned for their teamwork and work ethics, especially when it comes to training and supporting their teammates on the field. The clubs here don't see too many roster changes during the summer transfer window, because most coaches want to work with that they have and prefer to keep similar players on.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • High

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 5
Highest ranking achieved: 4
Lowest ranking in history: 6
Lacking star-power in the form of international players, many thought Meridell would not attract enough attention from outsiders to break into the top 10 leagues when the annual power rankings came around. Boy, did MD prove them wrong. Supporters in the nation are known for their enthusiastic nature and vocal encouragement, and fan attendance remains their highest score. In fact, the lowest score the MD league has achieved in this category is 9.7 out 10.

Team Mottos: One must make mistakes in order to learn, for no one is born knowing all.

History: Noble Yooyu doesn't have the most respectable history but they have more than made up for their past faults. Originally accepting only players in the upper class, those policies have since been abolished. Today, everyone is welcome to join the team and all members are named as honorary knights. Unlike most of the teams in the Meridell league, Noble Yooyu has a faster playing style and likes to rely on speedy attackers and defenders. Not having many strategies beforehand, most of their decisions during matches are made spontaneously. Partly sponsored by King Skarl, the club is the most prosperous (in terms of funding) in Meridell and always have new equipment for each season.

Fans & Stadium: Most of their fans come from the cities and more populated areas in Meridell. In rural areas, the team is still disliked ever since the incident of Gaius Brikthin many years ago. Overall, the team has a moderately sized fan base and does have some international fame. Their stadium is located near the palace and can hold 13,000 spectators. Shining Knights is the name of their arena and it was built in a shape of a cylinder, representing both infinity and equality.

Team Mottos: Success on the field is judged by one's passion.

History: Founded by the legendary Gaius Brikthin, Peasant Peoples United is a team that is extremely proud of their early beginnings. While they have not won the national Meridell league as often as the bigger and wealthier clubs, they pride themselves in playing fair and giving their all. The players have stated many times that regardless of whether or not they win, they try to have fun on the field and give everyone a chance to play.

Fans & Stadium: They have very few supporters other than their friends, families and neighbours. Still, there is a sizable fan club in Altador, who admire the team's principles. Due to a lack of funding, their home field is an open stretch of land where it was rumoured that Brikthin's house once stood. Since there aren't any seats, fans usually crowd in a circle around the field, shouting their words of support.

Team Mottos: We're the green team and we'll win supreme!

History: Team of Illusen (formerly known as Evergreen Valley Team) is the oldest professional team in Meridell's yooyuball league and have won the most championship titles so far. While they are also one of the wealthier clubs in the land, they prefer to build their squad from within, recruiting players from Meridell before going abroad. Their playing style relies heavily on good communication and teamwork, with everyone doing their bit to get the yooyu into the net.

Fans & Stadium: The club has since relocated their stadium so that it is situated near Illusen's Glade. Their home yooyuball field is called Illusen's Grove and seats 10,000 spectators, making it one of the larger stadiums in Meridell. The team is exceptionally popular in Meridell, but also has a large fan base in Brightvale and Neopia Central. Fans usually show up at matches wearing green, whether it's a green t-shirt, hat or scarf.

Team Mottos: On the shoulders of our supporters, these humble farmers stand tall.

History: The Farmers Fraternity is the oldest yooyuball club in Meridell, but did not become competitive until much later. By the time they entered the league, other teams had already earned multiple titles. The Fraternity started off as a balanced (2 + 2) formation but quickly changed to a defensive (1 + 3) set-up after realizing that they could not keep up with the technical skills of the other yooyuball clubs. The team consists primarily of farmers who try to earn a living playing professional yooyuball and hopefully make enough Neopoints to share with their hometowns.

Fans & Stadium: The Farmers Fraternity's home field is a modest facility located in the eastern regions of Brightvale. Their fans pitched together to raise enough money to build a functional yooyuball field that seats 2000. The Fraternity team members are well-known for doing their best to keep in touch with their supporters. They hold a small festival open to all supporters at the end of each season with the players themselves cooking all of the meals.

Team Mottos: Standing strong, standing proud – we are the Symols.

History: Symol United is the newest yooyuball team in the Meridell league, but have already shot to fame with their match-winning ways. With many critics watching this team closely, many thought that United would succumb to stress but they have yet to crack under pressure. Compared to other teams in Neopia, they don't usually play as a cohesive unit and their style reflects a group of five individuals rather than one team. This philosophy has led to both success and failure, but Symol United feels confident in their game.

Fans & Stadium: Situated in southern Meridell, Symol Sanctum can hold 9000 spectators. Symols play an important part in the stadium as there are numerous statues of the Petpet everywhere and stands selling Symol plushies and t-shirts. The team has a small fan base in Meridell, mainly because they are newer. They also have many international fans around Neopia as well.

League Overview

As the newest league to enter the international yooyuball federation, all eyes are on Moltara and the five clubs as they begin their debut. From what we've gathered so far, the majority of the roster contains local players and new graduates from youth academies worldwide. In fact, if you take a quite glance at the rosters to your left, you might recognize some familiar names, like Shurtz, Soley, and Grelinek. The Moltaran clubs will have a hard time attracting famous international players but if yooyuball talent runs in the family, they've got nothing to worry about.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Attacking (emphasis on creating scoring chances from all areas of the field)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • Low

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: To be determined
Highest ranking achieved: To be determined
Lowest ranking in history: To be determined
There aren't any power rankings yet because Moltara hasn't played any seasons yet! However, we can make some predictions. Judging by their Altador Cup performance, the Moltarans are a scrappy bunch, so I wouldn't expect a high skill level. Critic reviews might also be low, but depending on the individual clubs and players, you never know. Fan attendance might be their highest score but again, this is all speculation. Be sure to check in for the 2010-2011 power rankings, which will be released in the summer of 2011.

Team Mottos: Even in the darkest hour, we still have the vision.

History: Owned by a Krawk Island pirate that runs a lucrative business, Moltara Vision is the wealthiest club in the Moltaran league. Because of their funds, they have access to the best yooyuball players on the transfer market. Moltara Vision's style of play is unlike the other clubs in the league. They focus on technique and skill and though they may not be exciting or thrilling at times, players often feel that their club is the future of Moltaran yooyuball.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium, The Moltaran Dream, is located in west Moltara and seats approximately 4000 fans. They may not have a lot of followers at home, but out of the five Moltaran clubs, Moltara Vision is the best known in Neopia.

Team Mottos: Just keep digging, and we'll eventually get our win!

History: The club was established by a group of miners who worked at the obsidian quarry. After seeing yooyuball being played around Neopia, they decided to create their own team. Using their vast funding from the obsidian quarry, the miners eventually became the managers instead of players themselves, opting to let the "younger folk" play under their banner. Obsidian Armoury is a defensive-oriented team and though they don't score that often, their tidy footwork and clever plays still wow the crowd.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium is located near the quarry and is considered to be Moltara's best arena. The outer wall is made entirely out of obsidian and blends right into the rest of the mine. Visitors to home matches will be given a free gift bag, including team merchandise and, of course, obsidian. Seating around 5000 fans, it's one of the larger stadiums in Moltara.

Team Mottos: Welcome to Tanks of Tangor. This is when you lose and we win.

History: Founded by Tangor, this club is all about the attack force. With three forwards, Tanks of Tangor delivers the crowd with a lot of exciting moments and heart-stopping action. Their defensive line leaves something to be desired, as they often lack any good strategies. In fact, Tangor wanted to have 4 forwards and no defenders, but was advised against it.

Fans & Stadium: The Tank, their home arena, is located near Tangor's Workshop and seats roughly 2000 visitors. The atmosphere is very interesting, with gears and fans everywhere, making it look rugged and dark.

Team Mottos: The streak of light, the lightning streak. We are The Lampwyck Lightnings!

History: The Lampwyck Lightnings was founded by one of Moltara's most prominent citizens, Lampwyck. Owning his own shop means the club receives a decent amount of funding, so they are considered to be one of the more wealthier clubs in this league. As the name suggests, the team plays a high-tempo match, with quick passes and speedy players.

Fans & Stadium: Already receiving high praise from critics around Neopia, their home arena is a wonderful sight to behold. Fantastic Lights is the name of their stadium, and from the outside, it looks like a circular, paper lantern. The atmosphere is always bright and cheery, with thousands of lamps hanging from the ceiling. There's even a souvenir shop that sells figurines of players that light up or glow in the dark.

Team Mottos: Have no fear, The Marlock Cavalry is here!

History: Unlike the petpet for which the club was named, The Marlock Cavalry is anything but shy. Using an out-all attacking formation, they play an "in your face" style of yooyuball with little focus on defending.

Fans & Stadium: Their home stadium, Marlock Center, looks like a giant Marlock shell from the outside. Inside, the arena has a high ceiling with Marlock-shaped balloons floating everywhere. Can you guess what the souvenir shop sells? Marlock posters, pens, hats, t-shirts... Just about everything here is about Marlocks! The stadium seats around 1000 spectators, making it the smallest in Moltara.

League Overview

Described as being a "by the books" league, Mystery Island has been in the shadows of the yooyuballing world for quite a while. Many sports enthusiasts often skip over this league because of the clubs' reputation of being dull and repetitive. However, the Mystery Island does have a few things to brag about. It's an easy league for any newcomer to join and often, young players and new fans will watch the MI clubs to learn the basic skills and techniques of the game. Unlike other "traditional" leagues like Altador and Meridell, Mystery Island teams don't take the initiative of inventing new plays, strategies, or techniques and spectators complain that they are seemingly watching the same matches over and over again.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low

League Revenue:

  • Very low

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 14
Highest ranking achieved: 11
Lowest ranking in history: 16
Low revenues and critic reviews means that Mystery Island has yet to break into the top 10 leagues of Neopia, though they have come close on a few occasions. Fans still flock to the stadiums on match days, but that's not enough to drum up interest around Neopia. Also, Mystery Island's stars come in the form of domestic players, while few foreign athletes are ever signed to the clubs.

Team Mottos: Sorry, your ticket does not end in a 0, 5 or 2. You lose. We win.

History: Mystery Tombola is a yooyuball team named after the Tombola game. The team considers Tiki Tack Yooyu Squad to be their biggest rivals and try to earn the Tiki Tack Man's approval by winning games. Mystery Tombola is partly funded by the Tiki Tack Man (he seems to enjoy yooyuball a lot, since he's involved with two teams!). Their yooyuball strategy is neither focussed on attacking or defending. In fact, they're quite the "by the books" team. They have no playing style to call their own.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium , Field of Chance, is located in north-western Mystery Island and has a capacity of 10,000 seats. In the lobby, there are stands where visitors can purchase Island merchandise, Neocola and other snacks. Mystery Tombola has a fairly large fan base in Mystery Island, though they can't be described as enthusiastic by any means. Supporters of the squad are not particularly vocal during matches, but they do travel in large numbers to away games.

Team Mottos: Up against the Sandy Shores? Be prepared to get washed away!

History: It was founded by "Munchie" Mulroon, a sailor who was thrown overboard during storm and drifted onto the sandy shores of Mystery Island. Based in the southern regions of Mystery Island, this is a team that always seem to consist of the friendliest of players. On the yooyuball field, they are known for their high percentage of possession and complex passing. In one match against their rivals, Tiki Tack Yooyu Squad, they passed 184 times consecutively and scored, much to the delight of their fans.

Fans & Stadium: Sandy Shores have a huge fan base in Mystery Island, as well as Roo Island and Kiko Lake. At matches, supporters are usually not as vocal as other fans, but whenever a goal is scored everyone takes out their pan flutes and plays the Sandy Shores theme song. Their stadium, Beach Side View, is very picturesque and has won numerous awards, such as "Neopia's Most Innovative Stadium". Made entirely out of sand, no one really knows how it manages to stand up. Regardless, it is strong and large enough to seat 20,000.

Team Mottos: You have entered the land of the Giants.

History: The Geraptiku Giants, like Northwood Were-Pets of Haunted Woods, rely on their massive size to dominate the yooyuball field. Overpowering the majority of their opponents with their powerful players and outrunning their rivals with speedy ones, the Giants have only one priority and that's scoring. Founded by one of the archaeologists that explored The Lost City of Geraptiku, the Giants' approach to yooyuball is much less methodical and strategic than other teams, but they are more known for their accurate long passes.

Fans & Stadium: Home of the Giants Yooyuball Arena is a pyramidal-shaped temple, capable of holding over 15,000 spectators. The stadium was originally located in The Lost City of Geraptiku, but poor match attendance forced them to move to the northern regions of Mystery Island, outside of the city. Fans of the Giants often chant "Geraptiku, Geraptiku, Geraptiku..." during matches as a way of intimidating the opponents and their fans.

Team Mottos: Step right up! Come and be amazed!

History: When The Island Yooyu Troop first entered the competitive league, there were high hopes for top finishes from both the players and their fans. While the roster of players remains consistent in skill, they are lacking that final ingredient that can turn their team into champions. Time and time again, they have ended their season just a few points behind 1st place. On the field, they are known for their tight defence and above average goalkeepers. Many seasons, they sign two center defenders and one would act as the center forward. Though other teams may become irritated by their constant defending, it has proven to be effective for them.

Fans & Stadium: Located in the south-western region of Mystery Island, The Island Circus is their home stadium and has won "Neopia's best stadium atmosphere" multiple times. The mood is always festive and the smell of popcorn, cotton candy and freshly baked cookies fills the arena. Fans, in keeping with the circus theme, often put on red clown noses.

Team Mottos: If you can't stand the heat, get out of our hut!

History: Being one of the oldest teams in Mystery Island, Tiki Tack Yooyu Squad have won their fair share of trophies and championship titles. They are masters of using the long pass, mainly because their forwards usually just stand near the net or try to get into an open area on the field. The roles of the players have always been sharply defined at the squad – defenders defend, and forwards score goals. With no thought for innovation in the game of yooyuball, Tiki Tack Yooyu Squad is successful only in their own land, but competing against the best teams around Neopia is another story...

Fans & Stadium: Tiki Tack Yooyu Sqaud is one of the better funded clubs in Mystery Island, with the Tiki Tack Shop being their main sponsor. Their home stadium, Tiki Field, is situated on the southern shores of the island and can hold roughly 15,000 spectators. The arena is a massive hut, with a bamboo yooyu motif on the roof. The team has a lot of fans, mostly because of how famous their sponsor (Tiki Tack Man) is around Neopia. For games, supporters often sport multi-coloured leis.

League Overview

As with the majority of smaller leagues, the problem that Roo Island suffers from is that they aren't well-known around Neopia. Regardless, the clubs do put up quite an exciting season every year and though they may lack a large number of fans, the critics have given them high praise in calling RI the league to watch out for. More innovative than other small leagues, RI clubs are all about giving the fans a good show and keeping the crowd entertained. The party atmosphere is a major draw for many younger fans who enjoy the high energy levels the players have.

Style(s) of play:

  • Attacking (emphasis on creating scoring chances from all areas of the field)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)

General pace of the game:

  • Fast (the game is usually played in an "end to end" style where the yooyu can go from one half of the field to the other in mere seconds; players are often sprinting for the full 60 minutes)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • Medium

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 13
Highest ranking achieved: 12
Lowest ranking in history: 15
It's strange to note that yooyuball still isn't that popular in this small island, as fan attendance remains extremely low. Given RI's past performances in the Altador Cup and in their domestic league, it's surprising to say the least. Still, critics are generally positive about Roo Island and note that the majority of the clubs have broken out of their "traditional playing-style stereotype".

Team Mottos: Rain or shine, we'll be there. Question is, will you?

History: Blumaroos of the Isle is a professional yooyuball team located on the eastern coast of Roo Island. Traditionally, their style of play has neither been focussed on attacking or defending. Rather, they tend to run circles around their opponents, forcing a chase in an attempt to wear them down by half-time. Very rarely do they ever score in the first half of the game, leaving a tremendous amount of pressure on the forwards for the second half.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium, East Isle, is a unique yooyuball field in Roo Island because it floats on top of the water on the east coast. The field remains completely sturdy even though there may be waves. This is because one side of the pitch is attached to the coastline. Spectators sit on the bleachers on the beach and cheer on their favourite teams.

History: On average, Dice-A-Yooyu Team is the youngest squad in Neopia. Unlike other youthful squads (like Lagooners of Krawk Island), they aren't as focussed on yooyuball as they are about having a good time. This explains how they hold some of the less wanted records, such as having no wins in two consecutive seasons. Being such a young team, however, means that they have time to grow and adopt new techniques. Most of the time, their yooyuball game suffers from a lack of experience and strategic thinking.

Fans & Stadium: Five Dice Stadium is located in central Roo Island, near Dice-A-Roo. Able to seat 5000 spectators, it is one of the smaller yooyuball fields but has many open training fields that the squad uses during their off season. Dice-A-Yooyu doesn't have many fans yet. They're relatively newer than most of the more successful teams and haven't gained much international attention.

Team Mottos: This is one Company that's always booming.

History: King Roo Company was founded by King Roo himself, and is currently ranked as the most profitable and wealthiest team in Roo Island. Every season, their roster contains many world-class players of the highest quality which explains their success for being such a new team. The team is known for having solid goalkeepers that are particularly adept at penalty saves. As part of their uniform, they wear a cape similar to their founder.

Fans & Stadium: King Roo Company has garnered many supporters, both regional and international. Fans often wear capes with their favourite player's name stitched into the back, so it always looks like there are thousands of King Roos in the stadium! The King's Korner is their home stadium, located in south-eastern Roo Island. It can hold 21,000 spectators, making it the largest yooyuball stadium on the island.

History: Founded by the Roomister family, Team Roo Roo Roos predominantly showcases yooyuball talent from Blumaroos. While other species of Pets have been known to join the team, the majority of their most famous players have been Blumaroos that have gone on to represent Roo Island in the Altador Cup. As the most successful team in Roo Island to date, Team Roo Roo Roos are always under a lot of pressure to perform well each and every season, which leads to high pressure and arguments between team members.

Fans & Stadium: Since the team is based in the northern region of Roo Island, this puts their stadium, A-Roona, near the residential district. Being the most popular squad in their league, they have expanded their stadium to seat almost 20,000. Their largest fan club is The Roo Sector and they also sit in the north part of the stadium.

Team Mottos: You vill never defeat us, for the darkness is our ally.

History: The Von Roo Squad was originally founded in Haunted Woods and renamed by a group of Count Von Roo fans. The team was later relocated to Roo Island where they have made a name for themselves in the yooyuball world. Similar to their long-time rivals, Team Roo Roo Roos, The Von Roo Squad uses an attacking (3 + 1) formation. Derbies between these two teams are always exciting, as many goals are sure to be scored. Though they have a lot of firepower, one they suffer from is inconsistency.

Fans & Stadium: The Blu Vampire is their home arena and can hold approximately 7000 spectators. Located in southern Roo Island (near Count Von Roo's house), The Von Roo Squad has many fans in their own land, but possibly have even more supporters in Haunted Woods. There's a variety of fan clubs based in Haunted Woods, such as "Von Roo Yooyu Group" and "Vampire Blumaroos for the Cup" (which consists almost entirely of Blumaroos painted Halloween).

League Overview

Grace, style, and strategic play: these are just some of the things that make up the exciting Shenkuu league. The clubs are often described as being some of the most tactical teams around and giving immense attention to even the smallest details during a game. Critics sometimes compare SK matches to being its own style of art. As a well-established league, Shenkuu quickly became one of the top-tier contenders and the teams have international recognition. The yooyuball youth academies in the nation often focus on strategic plays, quick thinking, and building inner focus. It's no wonder that young graduates are mature beyond their age and show a deep appreciation for the sport.

  • Strategic (running plays and using strategies that requires a high level of skill)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 3
Highest ranking achieved: 3
Lowest ranking in history: 6
In general, Shenkuu's skill level is always its highest score, hovering around 9.5/10. They do lack some of the monetary values that other big leagues have, like Krawk Island or Faerieland. Still, fan attendance is normally high and the majority of tickets are sold. Yooyuball as a sport is still gaining momentum in Shenkuu, so it might be some time before we see any "superfans" in the nation. For now, interest levels remain average.

Team Mottos: Wisdom is not in knowing everything, but in using what you know to your advantage.

History: Sandan Yooyu Squadron are renowned for their defensive techniques and many new yooyuball defenders often watch their matches to learn how to master the basics, as well as pick up some new skills. The team is very open about their strategies and their main goal is to help promising young players reach their potential. However, since they don't keep their tactics a secret, all of their rivals know exactly what to expect when facing them...

Fans & Stadium: Sandan Center of Learning can be found in southern Shenkuu. The stadium was built with the waterfalls in mind, and has many openings to let water flow in and out. It includes many small yooyuball fields where team members often tutor younger players during their days off. The team doesn't have a whole lot of fans, mostly because they are known for their teachings rather than their playing.

Team Mottos: The Sensei's way is one of grace, precision and patience.

History: Spending most of their time meditating in their temple, Shenkuu Sensei believe that being strong of mind will give them an advantage on the yooyuball field. Their training sessions focuses on being aware of their surrounding and where each and every member of the team is at all time. During matches, they all move as an interconnected unit and many spectators have likened their playing style to an intricate dance.

Fans & Stadium: Temple of Concord is their home stadium. The structure is two stories tall, with the yooyuball field being on the main floor and multiple rooms on the second floor devoted to relaxation and meditating. Shenkuu Sensei is funded by Anshu, owner of Remarkable Restoratives. Though he isn't an avid fan of the sport, he can be seen watching the team from the special balcony of the arena with other club officials. The squad has a moderately sized fan base in Shenkuu, as well as around Neopia. Their hypnotic playing style has gained them many fans, especially in Faerieland and Altador.

Team Mottos: Wherever we are, we are not alone for our supporters are with us in spirit.

History: Shenkuu Warriors Unite is about one decade younger than The Lunar Crew, but there is already a lot of buzz surrounding this team. Many critics feel that the Warriors have what it takes to be one of the best teams in Neopia. Described as being one of the most technical squads in Neopia, they are very adept at creating strategies even during a match. The communication between team members is astounding and many fans joke that the players are actually psychics. Their major sponsor is Exotic Foods and the shop owner, Orrin, is said to be a huge fan of yooyuball.

Fans & Stadium: Since the stadium is located near Exotic Foods, many spectators usually rush over to the shop to purchase snacks before the match or during the half-time break. The Sixth United is their stadium and it was named as a tribute to all of their supporters (the team refers to their fans as the sixth member of their team). Shenkuu Warriors Unite has a very large fan base in their own land, but has massive amounts of supporters elsewhere as well. In The Lost Desert, one of the biggest fan clubs is "Sandy Warriors".

Team Mottos: Prepare for defeat. You have been dealt the hand of Stealth.

History: Their playing style is extremely entertaining to watch, using their speed and running tricky plays. In one of their most ancient techniques, "Passage of the Pandaphant", the right and left forwards run towards each other with blinding speed, seemingly switching the yooyu from one player to the other. Both of them then run towards their own goalkeeper, with the right forward going towards the right defender and the left forward going towards the left defender where it seems the yooyuball is passed to another player. By this time, the other team have lost track of who has the yooyu and the four Stealth players rush towards the opposition's goalie. Not knowing where to defend, the goalie has no chance.

Fans & Stadium: Fans of Stealth are most noticeable for dressing like the team. This can be intimidating for visiting squads because it looks like they're being surrounded by a sea of ninjas. Their home arena is the Temple of Luminosity and has won numerous distinctions, such as "Neopia's best stadium atmosphere".

Team Mottos: We look to the skies and they tell us that victory is ours.

History: The Lunar Crew has won more league titles than any other yooyuball team in Shenkuu, an achievement that their rivals, Stealth of Shenkuu, hope to surpass soon. Their defensive (1 + 3) formation means that they won't score as much as other teams, but thanks for their defenders, matches can be won with only a few goals. The Crew has a long history of consulting scholars and academics in an attempt to find the perfect balance between mental strength and physical power.

Fans & Stadium: The Lunar Crew is the oldest yooyuball team in Shenkuu and has many supporters, mostly in the northern regions where the club is based. Shrine of Moonlight, their yooyuball field, is located deep in the forest which produces a serene and peaceful setting.

League Overview

Ever tried playing yooyuball during a blizzard? Well, these clubs do that on a weekly basis. In other leagues, games might be cancelled due to frozen pitches or hail, but not here. The Terror Mountain league is known for having a hardy bunch of players that can tackle any weather condition. Although the majority of these clubs adopt a slow-paced style of play to conserve their stamina, it's amazing to watch these athletes get pushed to the limits by the climate and environment around them. In general, the Terror Mountain league is mostly popular within the nation and have few followers around Neopia.

Style(s) of play:

  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low

League Revenue:

  • Medium

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 10
Highest ranking achieved: 9
Lowest ranking in history: 15
With the emergence of younger players, many critics and fans are seeing a shift in the Terror Mountain league. Will these young recruits inject some lively action into TM? Or will this league be forever doomed to be slow and sluggish? Only time will tell. By and large, Terror Mountain sits mid-table whenever the rankings come out. The low skill level and critic reviews have hampered any significant rise through the rankings, but maybe that will change in the future.

Team Mottos: We're the Happy Citizens – smiling as we hand you a defeat.

History: Since its inception, Happy Happy Valley Citizens have earned tremendous praise, both from inside their land of Terror Mountain to international critics. Having the distinction of winning the very first league title, many have argued that the Citizens had helped pave the way for the increasing awareness of yooyuball and encouraging youth to play the game. Renowned for being the first team in Terror Mountain to use an attacking (3 + 1) formation, they never seem to suffer goal droughts and have shaped the careers of many famous yooyuball forwards.

Fans & Stadium: Located deep in the hustle and bustle of Happy Valley, they have many supporters there. The Happy Sports Ground is the largest yooyuball field in Terror Mountain. The building itself is made entirely out of ice and always contains ice sculptures of the current team members. Fans consider Slushie Supreme to be their biggest rival, since the Slushie Shop is also located near them.

Team Mottos: Anyone who tells you that you shouldn't eat ice cream for breakfast/lunch/dinner is obviously not an ice cream fan!

History: Players who join Ice Cream Screamers are not addressed by their name, but are given a new nickname based on ice cream flavours. The squad has been around for a long time, but haven't tasted the kind of success other teams have. Maybe this is because they spend more time thinking about ice cream than yooyuball. They're also the youngest team in Terror Mountain and lack the discipline needed to train and stick to a schedule. However, unlike most of the other groups in their league, they like to play faster and are much more energetic.

Fans & Stadium: Ice Cream Castle is their home yooyuball field and attracts many visitors on an annual basis. If one of the players score a goal, the entire crowd gets a free scoop of ice cream (for example, if "Chocolate" and "Strawberry" each score, everyone gets two free scoops!). Ice Cream Screamers' supporters are generally younger in age and many families enjoy going to their matches for a night out.

Team Mottos: It's getting chilly in here, isn't it? Good thing the cold doesn't bother us.

History: Polarchuck Club is one of the more successful clubs in Terror Mountain. Though they perform extremely well in their own region, they have difficulty playing in lands with warmer climates, such as The Lost Desert or Mystery Island. As with most of the teams in the Terror Mountain league, their playing style is much slower, with less passing and movement. However, that doesn't mean that it's boring to watch them play. They are regarded as one of the more technical leagues that emphasize the use of strategies.

Fans & Stadium: Located on the very summit of Terror Mountain, Polar Pitch is a yooyuball stadium made entirely out of ice. Since it's always freezing in there, visitors are advised to bring hats, mitts, jackets and scarves. There's a gift shop in the lobby that sells winter clothing, just in case. One of the most popular items is a white jacket with a hoodie shaped like a Polarchuck's head. The club has many fans in Terror Mountain. There are multiple fan clubs for the team, such as "Happy Polar Citizens", which is based in Happy Valley.

Team Mottos: Our Slushies are second to none!

History: Founded by the owner of Slushie Shop in Terror Mountain, he created this yooyuball team when he saw how much money could be made. Seeing how famous yooyuball was around Neopia, he attempted to boost his store's revenues by calling together all of his advertisers, profit analysts and marketers and gave them equipment to play. While they did not win many league titles in their early seasons, Slushie Supreme (and his Slushie Shop) gained more fans and attention as time went on. Not only that, the club began to attract yooyuball stars around Neopia and soon became one of the big contenders for the national title.

Fans & Stadium: Located near Slushie Shop, The Slush Dome is their home stadium. Shaped like a giant Slushie, it seats approximately 30,000 people. In the Official Slushie Supreme Merchandise Store, fans can purchase hats in the shape of slushies to wear during matches. They also sell winter accessories, slushie holders, fancy straws and re-useable slushie mugs. Fans affectionately call the players "Slushies" and routinely shout out their team motto during matches. Sometimes, it's a mystery whether they are talking about the players or the actual drink.

Team Mottos: The Snowager Squad has blasted your team! Better luck next time...

History: The Snowager Squad has a long history of performing extremely well under pressure. In fact, it seems that for them to be able to play well at all, they have to be a few goals down to start with. Nicknamed "The Comeback Snowagers", they have fought their way back from behind countless times. That being said, the key flaw in their team is that they cannot play well until they are scored on multiple times. Most of the time, they start a match by defending too much and not creating any scoring chances, and they usually lose if their opponents score in late in the game.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium, Snowager Cavern, is located in the Ice Caves and can hold roughly 15,000 spectators. There are numerous stands selling Snowager Caps and snacks, like Snowager Ice Lollies. The Snowager Squad has a small fan base in Terror Mountain. At one time, they had many supporters, but they grew tired of the team's poor efforts in the league. Fans that are still with them enjoy the excitement they get from watching a thrilling comeback.

League Overview

As a whole, Tyrannian clubs focus much more on the defensive aspect of the game than other leagues. Even in the minor leagues and youth academies, there is a greater emphasis on defending and because of this, Tyrannia has produced many world-class defenders that sign with clubs from all over the world. If you ever see a Tyrannian-born player on a Faerieland team for example, you can bet that they're being used in a defensive role. Though matches aren't necessarily the most exciting things to watch, this league has gained a lot of respect throughout the years.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)
  • Aggressive (hard tackles and rough tactics; also expect some "bending" of rules now and then)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low

League Revenue:

  • Low

Critic reviews are generally harsh on this league, but fans don't care one way or another: they want their yooyuball. Fan attendance is the highest score, usually sitting around 8 or 9 out of 10. Skill level has also been relatively high, but only for the defensive side of the TY clubs. On the attacking side, the forwards still need more work and more goals need to be scored in order to grab the attention of foreign fans.

Team Mottos: We're the team that just keeps spinning and spinning and spinning...

History: Monotony Yooyu was formed by a group of people who enjoyed playing the Wheel of Monotony every day. Though the club was founded in Neopia Central, it was relocated to Tyrannia since they thought more people would understand their squad's name there (apparently, many people in Neopia Central thought "monotony" referred to their playing style). Monotony Yooyu is much newer than any of the other teams but have already won several championship titles.

Fans & Stadium: Wheel Arena is their home stadium and can seat 6000 spectators. The stadium has no roof so rain or shine, all matches take place in the open. There are multiple stands selling food and drinks, with Eggs on Rock and Tyrannian Flat Bread being the crowd favourites. Monotony Yooyu has a small fan base so far, but if they continue to perform well each season, they'll definitely gain more attention both in their land and around Neopia.

Team Mottos: Here, you take this free omelette over there while we go score on you.

History: Omelette Omegas have been there since the first day of the Tyrannian yooyuball league and are considered to be one of the best teams in Neopia. The club has a history of developing players into superstars, with many of them reaching fame in Tyrannia's international team. The Omegas utilize players of speed in conjunction with players of strength which leaves little room for their opponents to score.

Fans & Stadium: In a recent poll, supporters of the club said that they would rather beat The Plateau Peoples twice in one season than win the league title back-to-back. To add fuel to an already mammoth bonfire, Stadium of Omelettes is located almost directly in front of The Plateau People's yooyuball arena! Shaped like a giant omelette, many Neopians actually mistake it for the edible giant omelette and often walk up to the building hoping to get some free food.

History: As one of the oldest clubs in Tyrannia, The Niptor Clan ranks among Neopia's best yooyuball teams. They were one of the first teams to use an attacking (3 + 1) formation when most were still using a balanced formation, giving them the advantage at the net. Throughout its history, The Niptor Clan have produced some of the best forwards in the world and are known for their various plays that quickly culminate in goals.

Fans & Stadium: The Niptor Stage is located near the village in western Tyrannia. One of the most popular treats sold at the stadium is a chocolate cookie shaped like a Niptor's head. Being near such a populous area has graced them an extremely large fan base. Since they have such an exciting and fast playing style, they have many supporters worldwide as well, especially in Altador and Krawk Island.

Team Mottos: We play for the people. We play for our Plateau.

History: The Plateau Peoples is a professional yooyuball squad based in northern Tyrannia. Their close proximity to the Omelette Omegas created a tense rivalry between the two clubs, with both sides arguing that they represent the Plateau of Tyrannia. Being one of the "Big Three" teams in Tyrannia, The Plateau Peoples are always under pressure to perform well each and every season. Thanks to their strict training schedule and natural talent, the club has never placed lower than third and is considered to be one of the top teams in Neopia.

Fans & Stadium: The People's Plateau, their home stadium, has approximately 10,000 seats. The building, carved out of stone and bedrock, is tremendously sturdy. The communities living in northern Tyrannia are split perfectly down the middle between Omelette fans and Plateau fans. Very rarely will you ever come across a Tyrannian that supports both.

History: Throughout its history, Tribe of Tyrannia has been described as mediocre and below average. This is definitely not the team that garners international attention or even regional interest. While they are notable for being one of the oldest teams in Tyrannia, their yooyuball playing is horrendous at best. They don't practice often but when a training session occurs, most of the team loafs around. In more recent times the club has been purchased by a wealthy Tyrannian citizen, and they have begun to put more effort into the sport and many have already seen an improvement in their game.

Fans & Stadium: With an increase in funding, the team was able to build a new stadium for their home matches. Home of the Tribe has a capacity of 4000 seats and is located in the southern region of Tyrannia. Being based in such a remote region of Tyrannia and having accomplished very little, the squad has few fans but most of the time, their stadium is always full to the brim with spectators. Outside of Tyrannia, very few people have heard of the team.

League Overview

Virtupets is the home of the robots, the players who never tire and are always consistent. However, some feel that the robots are more of a hindrance and that their time has passed. Regardless of the limitations of these robotic players, the VP league remains very popular outside of the nation. It's strange then that the fan base within Virtupets Space Station is still relatively low. Yooyuball is still growing in popularity there, but it's ironic that a VP club has more fans outside of Virtupets than within it.

Style(s) of play:

  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)

General pace of the game:

  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Medium

League Revenue:

  • High

N.I.F.T.Y. Power Rankings:
Average rating: 9
Highest ranking achieved: 8
Lowest ranking in history: 11
With the majority of their fans from outside of Virtupets, the VP league has seen dramatic increases in their revenue throughout the years, especially with televised matches and more international coverage. Ticket sales, however, remain on the low side. Generally speaking, critics enjoy the VP league, but many feel that the use of robotic players is outdated.

Team Mottos: If you have batteries, you never tire. The same holds true if you play with passion.

History: Cosmo Supers have a history of being very perceptive when it comes to their opponents technique and strategies. Very rarely will the same trick work twice on them. The Supers do not like to rely on robotic yooyuball players, having suffered a demoralizing defeat in the past when their own forward turned against them due to a malfunction. However, a lack of funding and poor performances at try-outs means that they have to go with the cheaper alternative, a robot, rather than be a member down. Regardless, the future looks bright for the Supers. They are gaining a lot of respect around the world and with the right players the Cosmo Supers have the potential to be one of the best teams in Neopia (and space).

Fans & Stadium: The Cosmopolitan is their home stadium and is one of the five yooyuball fields orbiting the space station. It was named as a tribute to all of their fans, both national and international. Completely enclosed in a dome, the stadium has an entry dock for space vehicles carrying spectators over from the space station.

Team Mottos: Update on the score please...Grunts lead, 5000 to nil.

History: Grundo Grunts 5000 is a much newer yooyuball team compared to everyone else in the Virtupets league. Created by a bunch of Grundos in response to The Sloth Force United, the 5000 are angry that any respectable yooyuball team would play under Sloth's name. There have been discussions between the two clubs on whether or not the name should be changed. Their playing style is less technical than other leagues, preferring to focus on the sheer number of goals.

Fans & Stadium: Auditorium 5000 is a building shaped like a Grundo's head. Visitors can take the elevators up the left antenna to get to the snack bar and food court. At the top of the right antenna is Grundos' Gifts, where fans can purchase Grundo-shaped hats, noisemakers and streamers.

Team Mottos: Whatever you put your mind to, you can be sure that you'll achieve it!

History: Ever since Stars of Space burst onto the yooyuball scene, they have been ranked as the number one team in Virtupets. They have certainly lived up to their name winning many national league titles. Although the team was named prior to the events of Dr. Sloth, they like to think of themselves as playing on behalf of the Space Faerie. The club greatly admire her and try their best to play yooyuball with honesty. Stars of Space consider The Sloth Force United to be their greatest rivals.

Fans & Stadium: Stars of Space has a large fan base, not only in Virtupets but in Neopia as well. Many fans associate the team with being the defenders of justice and the innocent. Their home stadium looks like a giant, glowing meteor floating above the Virtupets Space Station. On the inside, Stadium In The Heavens actually looks quite nice, with luxurious and comfortable seating, gourmet dining and even a spa!

Team Mottos: Victory belongs to us and no one else!

History: The Sloth Force United is the oldest team at the Virtupets Space Station but it seems that their glory days are far behind them. Having won most of their league titles when Dr. Sloth was in power, many are thinking that they only won because he threatened other teams and the referees. Despite the fact that The Sloth Force United is the richest club in Virtupets, they have a hard time attracting new players since many despise Dr. Sloth and do not want to be associated with him. Many have petitioned the club officials to change the name of the team, but it doesn't look like that will happen anytime soon.

Fans & Stadium: Their stadium, Sloth Project, looks like a large spaceship and orbits around Virtupets Space Station. It's large enough to hold 20,000 visitors and like most of the yooyuball fields travelling around the Space Station, it has special dock entries to bring fans. The number of fans has diminished to a great extent. Today, supporters are usually old followers of Dr. Sloth or those who just like being evil.

Team Mottos: How do you defeat a team that never tires? The answer is...you can't.

History: Virtupets Yooyu-Bots is known for including many Robot players in their line-up each season. When the team was first started, the club's managers felt that they would have an advantage if every single one of their players were Robots, but that proved to be a disastrous decision. Though they were consistent and competent at performing their tasks, the Robots were easily fooled. Now, Virtupets Yooyu-Bots is made up of both Robots and real yooyuball players.

Fans & Stadium: The squad is quite new in the yooyuball league, so many people around Neopia haven't heard of them yet. In their own region, they have quite a dedicated following and tickets for their home games are always sold out. Virtu-Amphitheatre has a capacity of 10,000 seats. Not only does it include a yooyuball field, but has numerous restaurants and gift shops as well. Many popular space foods are sold as well, including Spiced Apple Pie, Marshmallow Grundo and Galactic Space Punch.

League Overview

In League Overview, you'll be given a brief history or description of the specific league. In addition to this, you'll find some general descriptions of the league below. Each league is different and focusses on different aspects of the game so be sure to take a look at your favourite league to see how they fare against other places.

Style(s) of play:

  • Traditional (emphasis on basic skills and plays)
  • Technical (emphasis on perfecting skills such as shooting accuracy and passing)
  • Strategic (running plays and using strategies that requires a high level of skill)
  • Balanced (equal focus on scoring and defending their own half)
  • Attacking (emphasis on creating scoring chances from all areas of the field)
  • Defensive (opting to stay in their own half and defend rather than focussing on scoring)
  • Risky (often employs a "hit or miss" style of play; may result in easy counterattacks for the opposing team)
  • Aggressive (hard tackles and rough tactics; also expect some "bending" of rules now and then)

General pace of the game:

  • Slow (sometimes played at a "pedestrian" space, it's not uncommon to see the players walk around the field at a slow speed)
  • Medium (a perfect balance between fast plays and methodical breaks, a medium pace allows teams to regroup and conserve energy)
  • Fast (the game is usually played in an "end to end" style where the yooyu can go from one half of the field to the other in mere seconds; players are often sprinting for the full 60 minutes)

Average # of goals scored per game:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

League Revenue:
League revenue depends on many variables, such as ticket sales, official team merchandise, and advertisements. The wealthier clubs and leagues have more purchasing power, and are able to sign top-notch international players from around Neopia. Meanwhile, leagues and clubs that don't earn a lot of Neopoints are relatively unknown and their popularity tends to be higher within their own nation.

Is this your first time visiting Yooyuball Planet? Are you a bit confused as to what's going on? Fear not, for this F.A.Q. section will hopefully guide you into the right direction! Didn't find the answer you were looking for? Not a problem. Feel free to click on the envelope below and send in your question.


What exactly is Yooyuball Planet?
It's a site that delivers articles and information about anything and everything to do with yooyuball. We're here to entertain Neopian sports fans, and give people something to read while they're waiting for the next Altador Cup :)

So, what's yooyuball?
*faints* What's yooyuball? Only the greatest sport ever created! Let me give you a quick rundown. Each team has 5 players. There's always 1 goakeeper, and at least 1 forward and 1 defender. Sometimes, you'll see teams that have 1 attacker and 3 defensive players, or maybe 2 fowards and 2 defenders. In yooyuball, two teams face off and try to score the most yooyus (which are actually petpets). At the end of the game, whoever scored the most, wins!

...wait, so none of the articles are true? The storylines, the characters - they're not real?
Of course they're real! ...In my mind, that is. I need something to do with my spare time (of which I have plenty), and creating fun characters, writing interesting articles and desiging layouts are just some of the things that keep my boredom at bay. These articles have nothing to do with the actual Altador Cup and is totally unrelated to whatever TNT cooks up. Some characters are 'real' in the sense that they are official Neopets characters, but the vast majority are created by me and some were donated by visitors and friends.

Can I write an article or create a character and submit it to your site?
If you're feeling creative, why not? Feel free to send it in! I should say though that there's no guarantee that it will be posted, but here's a few guidelines if you do want to write/create/make something:
- Make sure it 'fits' into the Yooyuball Planet world. I've create several backstories to many characters, as well as histories of teams. If you want to write an article, why not choose a team/player that hasn't been talked about?
- Be creative and be yourself! Yes, I know, very cliche, but hear me out. Give the article your own unique twist. For example, you could be writing as a sports reporter from Krawk Island. Why not add some 'Arrs' and other pirate talk?
- Spelling and grammar. I don't want to have to read through your article and check for any errors. Punctuation, capitals, commas, periods - they're on your keyboard for a reason! ;)

Can I use some of your characters and/or stories and use it to write my own stuff? (i.e. not for Yooyuball Planet but for my petpage?)
On one condition. Actually, on a few conditions:
- You give credit where credit is due. Please don't say things like 'I created this and this' when you didn't. :( Is giving credit to the original creator so horrible?
- Please contact me ahead of time if you want to use elements of Yooyuball Planet for whatever purpose.
- I would appreciate it if you kept it on Neopets.
- If my answer is no, please respect that.

Are there any other sites like this?
Tricky question! I haven't checked but to my knowledge, no. There are team fan sites, yooyuball "how-to-play" guides, but I haven't come across an actual petpage that created leagues, points, players, etc.

How often do you update the site?
During my school year (Sept - Apr), I can only update once a week, usually on Saturdays. In the summer I update a lot more, at least a few articles a week.

Would you like to be my affie?
Requests for affiliates are always open, so feel free to check out the Sitely section for more details. In general, I'm looking for Altador Cup or yooyuball-themed petpages, but I'll look at all forms.

Nice layout! Can I use it for my site?
Short answer: no. Long answer: It took a lot of time and effort into designing the layout. Please, no sticky paws! Stealers will be reported without warning.

Do you make yooyuball/Altador Cup graphics?
Yes! You can find them at my graphics/request site, The Lunch Box.








The beginning...

Yooyuball Planet is a project that I started in August 2009. The creation of the site was based on one question: what happens after the Altador Cup? My answer was this: after the AC ended, players would return to their own clubs & compete for the annual league title. As I began to put some thought into it, more ideas came to me & Yooyuball Planet was born. The "Planet" would revolve around yooyuball - a sport that brought the four corners of Neopia together and it would not only act as a news source, but also as a database of information. I was looking around and tried to find petpages that perhaps had already started up on this and see what their take on it – besides, Altador Cup is one of the biggest Neopets event of the year so I didn't think there would be a shortage of interesting ideas.

However, I was really surprised to find that there were no sites like this at all. Sure, there were yooyuball guides and team fan pages, but nothing on national leagues or "post-Altador Cup" playing. That was a big factor for me in starting YYB Planet because if you're a sports fan and you've been on the AC chat board during the tournament, you'll know just how passionate these people are. So, I decided to do what no other site has done: create a yooyuball world.

The challenges...

After weeks of brainstorming and planning, it was complete. I had 18 leagues (this was before Moltara was announced), with 5 teams per league and 5 players per team. The hardest part was coming up with character names. I already had over 90 "official" TNT players already, like Soley, Heggle, and Volgoth, but I still had to come up with names for more than 360 characters and design their player stats as well! There were times when I thought my creativity would burn out and even moments when I wanted to scrap the whole project because I was just one person. However, I stuck with it and I'm glad I did.

When designing the leagues, teams, and playing seasons, I drew a lot of inspiration from one of my favourite sports: soccer (football). I see a lot of commonalities between them and wanted to reflect my love of "real-life" sports with that of yooyuball. As in reality, Yooyuball Planet will report on transfer rumours between clubs, contract negotiations, and matches as well. I wanted to add player interviews to give the site a more authentic feel. In essence, YYB Planet is the only source for national leagues and because this site is a pioneer in that regard, I wanted to do everything right. Eventually, Yooyuball Planet was up and running! Writing articles every week was a bit daunting at first, but I had a lot of fun doing it.

Now...

In August 2010, we saw our first anniversary, the creation of separate archives, and over 100 articles written. I never thought that YYB Planet would last this long, but I'm glad it has. I've gotten some great comments and feedback from visitors and fans that enjoy yooyuball just as much as I do and to know that this is an original site that's still going strong is an amazing feeling.

So, here's to another year of dramatic matches between rival clubs, interesting articles about players, and yooyuball!

History Lesson #7: How to be N.I.F.T.Y. in Altador

Get ready for a 2-in-1 history lesson! In our articles and interviews, we've mentioned N.I.F.T.Y. quite a few times. So, just what is this strange acronym and why is it important to the yooyuball world? This history lesson will answer that question for you, but that's not all! Along the way, you'll learn how the Altador yooyuball league was first created. Let's get started with our lesson...

When the sport of yooyuball was first invented in Altador, there weren't any major organization and structure to the game. Mostly, games took place in rural neighbourhoods. People saw yooyuball as a hobby, rather than a full-time career. It was something to do after your farms had been tended, or when children had finished their school work. Eventually, the popularity of the sport took off. No longer was it simply trying to score against the other team, but players employed techniques to showcase their skills, and team strategies were formed to emphasize their communication. The evolution of how the sport was played also brought changes in how the sport was viewed. It was at this time that wealthy citizens decided to establish their own clubs to improve their social status in their towns. The difference is that these clubs were permanent, not the sort of game played during school recess or among friends. It was a permanent team that employed permanent players.

One such citizen went by the name of Niocar Tusipe, an elderly Buzz who inherited a large sum of money from her father's gardening business. The sport had been a lifelong passion of hers and she felt that it not only united people together, but also inspired others to achieve their dreams. I may not be as young as I once was, she thought, but I still want to be in the game of yooyuball. Thus, she decided to do what no other had done before her. She wanted to create a professional league. Spurred by her love of the game, she travelled across Altador, petitioning her cause to everyone, from landowners and farmers, to merchants and peasants. No one would be left out of her dream and mission of creating a yooyuball league.

Her ideas did not fall on deaf ears. During her travels, word spread across the land of a travelling Buzz and her zeal for the sport. Whenever she arrived at a new town, it seemed that they had already heard of the news. Niocar was gaining supporters left and right, and soon, heading back to her hometown, she was greeted with over 1000 people who wanted to make her dreams become reality. The Altadorian yooyuball league was soon established where the top 5 clubs of the land would compete in an annual competition, vying to be the best and enter their name into the Hall of Yooyuball Excellence.

The sport of yooyuball brought all Altadorians together. During the matches, everyone cheered as loud as they could for their team, whether they were young or old, rich or poor, and it was this spirit of camaraderie that motivated Niocar one step further. She wanted to travel to different lands and establish leagues there as well. Knowing it would be difficult for different leagues to keep in touch, Niocar first created an organization that would overlook all national yooyuball leagues. So, Niocar not only created the Altador league, but also started an association called Neopia's International Federation of Terrific Yooyuballers (N.I.F.T.Y.).

Let's move away from Altador and focus on N.I.F.T.Y. It is the governing association for national league yooyuball and has over 400 employees, ranging from those who are involved in the sport, to other areas, such as communications (ex. Reporters, photographers). N.I.F.T.Y. is led by an administrator who is voted to the position every five years. This administrator oversees the council. The council itself is comprised of representatives from different lands, like Krawk Island and Shenkuu. Each land is represented by four people: their head referee, the head official of the yooyuball league in their land, one athlete (chosen by his or her peers), and the head of sports management. Among its many functions, N.I.F.T.Y. is responsible for allocating season schedules to the leagues, working with The Yooyuball Committee (who governs the Altador Cup), and confirming transfers of players between clubs.

It's not hard to see how the history of N.I.F.T.Y. is very much intertwined with the history of yooyuball in Altador itself. More than 830 years after it was created, N.I.F.T.Y. continues to be at the forefront of yooyuball. Since its inception, it has grown to include 17 leagues. With the addition of Moltara, it now stands at 18, with 72 council members in total. Neopia's International Federation of Terrific Yooyuballers is, indeed, terrific. It was the hope of Niocar Tusipe that yooyuball would become an international phenomenon. Between national leagues and the international Altador Cup tournament, yooyuball can truly be called Neopia's #1 sport. Whether you're watching Babolino score a goal from the clouds of Faerieland, or delighting in Krawk Island's Garven Hale and his clever saves, one thing's for sure. This epic sport unites all of the lands.

History Lesson #6: The time when Maraqua suffered a drought

From Kreludor to Brightvale, in every land there is a special school open for all pets who wish to become yooyuball players. When they first enter, they choose one of three positions: defender, forward or goalkeeper. They are then divided into different classes where they learn the rules of the game and basic techniques. Each school will teach similar subjects, but may focus on different aspects of yooyuball. The Lost Desert emphasizes strategic thinking, Krawk Island schools focus on scoring techniques and Tyrannia highlights defensive skills.

Some time ago in Maraqua, another year began and The School for Maraquan Yooyuball Players opened their doors to new students. On the first day, many interested citizens signed up but when the school administrators tallied up the forms, there was a problem. They had 32 applications for forwards, 21 wanted to be defenders but no one signed up for the goalkeeping class! Since this was in the days before international transfers, there was already a shortage of goalies in Maraqua and many of the teams in the league were forced to use defenders as goalkeepers. The administrators held a brief assembly for all of the new students and asked them if anyone would volunteer to switch to goalkeeping. There was complete silence in the auditorium but one pet put their hand up.

Ah, yes! You over there! What is your name, young Maraquan?" The administrator pointed to the back. A frail looking Gelert stood up and cleared his throat, "Ahem..er...uh...my name's Marshton Fellows..." And so, Marshton Fellows started his training to become a goalkeeper. He was instructed by the very best coaches that Maraqua had to offer and though he originally signed up to be a forward, there was no doubt that he had the potential to become one of the greatest goalkeepers the land had ever seen.

As his training went on, he earned the respect of many. His years at the school went by quickly and soon he was graduating with the rest of his class. When it came time to enter the professional league, Marshton signed a contract with Maraquan Marauders. In his first season, his team went on to win the championship title thanks to his determination and talent. Keeping 8 clean sheets, he went through every single game without letting a yooyu get past him once, a record that is unmatched even today. Even when Marshton rose to fame and his name was known around Neopia, he was still the shy and kind Gelert that everyone in Maraqua knew. His astonishing abilities at the net inspired many to follow in his footsteps and to this day, Maraqua never again suffered a goalkeeping drought.

History Lesson #5: The Farmers and their fans

It wasn't that long ago in Meridell's history when the future of one yooyuball team was threatened. The Farmers Fraternity, based in a small rural town, was a modest team that had experienced little success. When it came time for administrators to form Meridell's professional yooyuball league, one of the proclamations was that in order to become registered as an official squad in the league, they must have their own stadium. There was one problem: The Farmers Fraternity had no stadium. In fact, they had very little funding to begin with, using Neopoints from their own pockets to pay for all their travel expenses. The news quickly spread through the village where the club was based and a town meeting was called. The people of the town all supported their club but what could they do? Someone in the front row asked, "what about Peasant Peoples United? They're a yooyuball team without a stadium and the King is not complaining!"

The mayor answered, "True, but they've argued that the land they play on was once the home of the legendary Gaius Brikthin. It's a historic site with a lot of importance in Meridell. Tell us, Jarfin, what will happen if you do not find a stadium?" Jarfin, captain of The Farmer's Fraternity sighed, "I'm afraid...the team will be disbanded." Everyone gasped and looked at the members of the team, who were not only yooyuball players that represented their town, but were also their friends. "We can't let that happen," someone shouted, "we've got to do something!" Another supporter by the name of Retho said, "I'll get together some of my best workers! We can supply the lumber to build the frame of the stadium. I'm sure we can set aside some of our Neopoints to pay for it." A small Aisha stepped forward and said, "Well, I can't build anything, but I can certainly bake up some goodies for the workers so they'll have something to eat."

One by one, different voices rang out, each donating their time, talents, and Neopoints. "I've got extra tools I can lend. Finally, they're being put to use!" Another member said, "I'll round together some of the children from the school. They're great artists and I'm sure they can create a nice banner for the new stadium." More and more people came forward, "Don't count me out, either! I'm great at sewing so I'll make up some new uniforms for the team." Finally, Old Meraff, a lonely farmer from down the road, reached into his pockets and pulled out a few Neopoints. "It's not much, but I want your team to have it."

At the end of their town meeting, the donations had reached 12,501 Neopoints and everyone had been assigned jobs for the next day. Within a few weeks, construction was complete and the 2000-seat stadium was built. The Farmers Fraternity was then inducted into the national Meridell league and became an official team. The team now had a new status, new uniforms, and a new stadium, but there was one thing that had from the beginning: loyal fans.

History Lesson #4: The story of Gaius Brikthin

A story about a legendary yooyuball player... Yooyuball players are remembered for many reasons. Perhaps they are great defenders, never letting an opponent get past them. Some excel in scoring, skilfully manoeuvring their way past their rivals and putting the yooyu into the back of the net. For some players, like Gaius Brikthin, they are known not only for their yooyuball talent, but also for their compassionate character. Meridell's Gaius Brikthin is described as being the greatest yooyuball player of his day and even in modern times, he has gained a mythical status in the game. While he rose to fame playing for Noble Yooyu in Meridell, it was the event of his departure that solidified his legendary stature. After declining to return to Noble Yooyu, Gaius' passion for yooyuball never waned and he decided to create his own team and give anyone who wanted to play a chance. Thus, Peasant Peoples United was formed. Reports of a new team soon spread across the land and many flocked to Brikthin's neighbourhood to see his developments. Using the money he earned from his time at Noble Yooyu, he purchased uniforms and equipment, but was unable to build a home stadium. Instead, he cleared his backyard and the team played in the dirt field.

After establishing the team, Gaius and the rest of Peasant Peoples United were admitted to the Meridell professional yooyuball league as one of the five teams competing for the championship title. At the end of the season, Noble Yooyu and Peasant Peoples United were tied on points and on number of goals scored. In order to determine the winner, the two teams must play one final game of yooyuball against each other. Noble Yooyu had yet to relax their admission policies, allowing only royalty and nobles into their team. Gaius knew that that if he and his team were able to defeat Noble Yooyu, he could perhaps persuade them to see reason and not focus on something as trivial as lineage. The game took place at Noble Yooyu's home arena and many of their supporters showed up in great numbers. Gaius advised his team to give their best effort and they entered the match. After a gruelling 55 minutes, the score remained 0-0. With 5 minutes left, Gaius and his team regrouped and made one final push for a goal. The yooyu was passed to Gaius and with seconds remaining, he shot the yooyu with tremendous speed past the goalkeeper into the net. Several things happened at once. The referee blew on his whistle. There was a moment of silence, and then a deafening cheer broke out in the stadium. Gaius ran back towards his teammates and they all jumped up and down in excitement. The final match of the season was over. Peasant Peoples United defeated Noble Yooyu, 1-0. After the match, Gaius talked to the other players about his idea of opening admission to anyone who wanted to join Noble Yooyu. The members of Noble Yooyu admired his principles and agreed to his suggestion.

The match against Noble Yooyu would be his last in the Meridell league. Following Peasant Peoples United's victory, Gaius Brikthin retired from professional yooyuball, insisting that he'd rather play for fun instead of having the pressures of the league on him. After that, he simply vanished. His whereabouts today are unknown. It is said that he travels around Neopia giving advice to young players but sometimes if one looks hard enough, he might be seen among the crowd in a stadium watching the yooyuball game.

History Lesson #3: Look to the skies!

Are you an Omelette fan? A long time ago in Tyrannia, there lived a group of friends who shared a single dream: to find the giant omelette. Their tale began like this...

In their small village, they were gourmet chefs, creating omelette masterpieces from any ingredient they could get their hands on. One day, a strange traveller went up to them and told them a story of a mythical omelette that was said to be larger than their entire village. The five friends didn't believe him at first, so he just shrugged and left without a word. Afterwards, they began talking about the giant omelette and how amazing it would be if it actually existed. What if that strange Poogle was telling the truth, one of them said, we need to go find it!.

So, the five friends set out on their journey. After hiking through the thick jungles for four days, they decided they had enough and wanted to return home. However, the group of Tyrannian travelers were robbed by bandits at nightfall who stole all of their food and supplies. In the morning, they only had empty bags. Things looked grim. Lost and hungry, they stumbled and tried to find their way home when all of a sudden, strange objects began to fall from the sky. One of the travelers grabbed this strange object and realized it was...an omelette! Omelettes of all different shapes and sizes and flavours were being thrown from somewhere, but it didn't really matter. The travelers grabbed and ate as many as they could get. With their hunger sated, they gained the strength and determination needed to continue their journey. They had already gone so far and they knew they would regret it if they went back home empty handed. A few days later, their omelettes were running low. They would have to find the giant omelette soon.

As the sun set, the five friends climbed over the hill and gasped. There, in the distance, was the mythical giant omelette! They cheered and ran towards the gigantic figure and when they made their way home, they told everyone in their village of their journey. Their story was told around Neopia and soon, everyone was coming to Tyrannia to have a piece of the giant omelette. Their love for omelettes grew even more and they decided to immortalize this in the game of yooyuball. The five friends joined together and created a team, naming themselves Omelette Omegas.

History Lesson #2: In which the peasant became a legend

A history lesson about Noble Yooyu! In Noble Yooyu's early beginnings, one must be of noble birth to play for this team. However, this presented many problems. Players of poor quality were being admitted and the club suffered major defeats, resulting in trophy droughts. This all changed with Gaius Brikthin, a lowly peasant Draik who had dreams of playing yooyuball. With the help of his friends, he was able to purchase cheap armor and polished them, making himself look like a knight. The time came when Gaius entered onto the field to show the others what he could do. Amazed by his skill, the knights and royalty cheered his name and welcomed him to their team.

After a few seasons with Noble Yooyu, Gaius was appointed as their captain and he led his team to countless victories. However, his identity was revealed one day and thus, he was forced to leave. The other members had to take back a noble who had played so poorly, he scored multiply times on his own net. The knights and other members of royalty went up to Gaius and begged him to rejoin them, but it was too late. He told them that there are more important things than one's lineage and did not accept their invitation to play with them again. The nobles, later realizing their mistake, opened their team to people of all lineages and today, Noble Yooyu is known for their chivalry, generosity and open-hearted nature.

History Lesson #1: The Golden Pharaohs' golden dilemma

A history lesson about Golden Pharoahs! This tale is told to all new players entering the Golden Pharaohs. In the ancient days of The Lost Desert, the Golden Pharaohs yooyuball club was established. They were funded by the Prince, who had a love for yooyuball that was so deep, it was said that he gave them everything they needed. Spurred by their greed, the five players asked for yooyuball equipment made of solid gold. The Prince gladly gave them what they wanted and wished them luck for their first match.

On the day of the match, the members of Golden Pharaohs dressed themselves with the Prince's golden gift. However, they soon realized their grave mistake for their armour and slingers were so heavy, they could barely lift their arms. They hurried to find new equipment but could not attain any and thus, had to make their way onto the yooyuball field, already tired from dragging the gold on their body. The match started with the Prince sitting in the royal box, looking onto the field eagerly. The Pharaohs' attackers tried to run towards the yooyu but they could only manage a slow walk.

An hour passed and the match ended. The Golden Pharaohs lost 32-0. After suffering such a humiliating defeat, they went to the Prince and returned his gifts, pleading for forgiveness. The Prince replied that he knew what would happen, but he needed them to know as well. The members of Golden Pharaohs understood and requested for regular equipment. The next day, the Prince came to them again and distributed his new gifts among the players. Each of them looked over their new (and useable) equipment and when they read what the Prince inscribed on each of their slingers, they smiled. 218 years have passed and the tradition continues to today. All members of Golden Pharaohs have a small inscription on a piece of their equipment: "Skill and teamwork shine brighter than gold".
