SHOWDOWN IN THE BAY - The inaugural BADASS Tournament will feature soccer teams
from all over who can make it to the Anarchy Week in the San Francisco Bay Area
in March 2004. The BADASS Tournament aims to provide a fun outlet for many
anarchists who will gather in the Bay Area in mid-March to attend the various
annual events such as the Anarchist Cafe, the Bound Together Anarchist
Bookfair, and the BASTARD Anarchist Conference.
Teams already confirmed in the tournament line-up so far include a team from
Chicago representing Arsenal magazine, Bay Area's 2003 Revolutionary Soccer
Tournament Cup Champions Kronstadt FC, and Anarcho-hyphenists, an up-and-coming
team closely affiliated with SF Food Not Bombs.


The tournament is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March
13th in San Francisco and on Sunday March 14th in Berkeley.
Exact times and locations of the matches will be announced on
the Anarchist Football Network website when they are confirmed.


While the majority of the players who will take part in the
tournament will already identify as anarchists, there is no
requirement for philosophical allegiance in order to join the
tournament. The only requirement is for anyone entering is to be
open-minded about anarchism and other anti-authoritarian ideas
and to respect and support each other by emphasizing fun instead
of pure competition.

The number of players for team rosters in each game will have to
remain flexible due to the busy schedule of the entire weekend,
especially as many of the players themselves will be involved with
things like tabling at the bookfair.

We encourage folks to form teams and enter the tournament. It's
not too late! We encourage participation from players of all or no
skill levels. And while there will not be any gender quotas, we ask
that all teams be multi-gendered.

There is a registration form for entering the tournament at
This will help us in scheduling the matches in advance. You will
also receive play guidelines designed to keep the matches friendly.
In the event that a team was to be formed at the last minute, we
will try our best to fit them in.

If you would like to volunteer to help organize the tournament,
please subscribe to the Anarchist Soccer email list at
