So you are fielding a team with Girls? Wasn't this a Male Cup? If it works out well I would be down to have (or host) a women's championship. Obviously, Laeral deemed it legal, so can't argue with you from a legality standpoint. I just don't know. Fielding a team with a bunch of guys and a few girls seems wrong, out of place, odd. Especially when you consider that they are playing against mostly (maybe entirely, haven't checked) male teams.
I'm fine with however a national team wants to make their team, especially as I doubt anyone will create an IDU Women's Football Championship. Besides, we all know that if Kerlile was competing, their entire team would be women.
As I said, if there is enough demand, I would host a women's IDU championship.

The Dezreik have very little ability with soccer - with the notable exception of the Beran Triplets who, when playing together, form a formidable defensive line. The nation is one of few that is truely gender neutral when it comes to sport, refusing to field teams of single sex if the players have the ability to compete together. The supporters are amazed and proud that their National team has made it to the championship.
Droves of fans from the nation turn up to all games in the championship, even if their team isn't playing. The most common thing they can be heard chanting is "Wooo, go Sports!" and are more than happy to endulge in extravagant eating and drinking sessions pre and post match so long as everyone's invited.
:b2:
So you are fielding a team with Girls? Wasn't this a Male Cup? If it works out well I would be down to have (or host) a women's championship. Obviously, Laeral deemed it legal, so can't argue with you from a legality standpoint. I just don't know. Fielding a team with a bunch of guys and a few girls seems wrong, out of place, odd. Especially when you consider that they are playing against mostly (maybe entirely, haven't checked) male teams.
One thing I wanted with my government was a proper equality of the people - so long as they are capable there is no discrimination based on race or gender. I would add or disability, but it naturally precludes some activities due to actual limitations/expectations of certain tasks.

edit: And to be clear when I was mentally picturing my team these women were actually better in agility and teamwork which made them ideal picks for the squad. But if there is a general consensus against female competitors the Dezriek would be happy to withdraw it's entire team. (I don't particularly view myself as a feminist I just don't feel I could break my own set of rules that I set out to achieve).
I don't mean this to be an ultimatum as we are all here to enjoy ourselves and (mentally) kick back a bit - just be happy I didn't try to field bears as well :b2:

I do not, by any means, represent the entirety of the IDU on this matter. Infact, I would bet that I am the only one that actually cared. I just found it odd, that is all. Do not change it.

Finally we have the sixteen!

As for the argument above about the gender of players usually NS sporting competitions don't really care, and let you do whatever

Anyway, good luck to all participanting! See you in Laeral!
