His Royal Majesty James I is said to be annoyed at the current state of affairs in Vyktory after activity slumped yet again in a seemingly self-perpetuating spiral of inactivity. While not enough to wipe Vyktory off the MCS map, it is worrisome that the only activity that happens inside national borders seems to be sports, while the Discord chat for the nation is also a ghost town.
N.B: The match was played on May 4th, but the results were not posted until May 9th, thus the delay in the writing of this post.
After a 2-1 home victory against Steeria and Highfield, Vyktory secured their place in the CTFA’s continental tournament known as the CiboTap, which will be held in the middle of the year in Calbion.
In an emphatic run of form which ended in a 6 game winning streak to win the title with 3 matches to go, Lionsgate City have become the Vyktoryan football champions after defeating Plainstown City 3-0 in front of 39,596 people at Lionsgate Stadium, just over half of the capacity of 77,500.

As part of the league expansion announced for the 2016-17 season in December, the Vyktoryan Football Association has been seeking to re-brand itself as the football governing body prepares to enter a new era, one in which Vyktory will hope to host a World Cup or CiboTap, with a host bid planned as early as CiboTap 2018, despite Vyktory failing to win over Calbion to win the hosting rights for CiboTap 2016.
