April 2012 Winner

Dumbarton FC (Scotland)
Dumbarton FC is the team of the small Scottish town of Dumbarton, 13 miles outside Glasgow. The club is the fourth oldest in Scotland, having been founded in 1872. The club won the Scottish Cup in 1882, then proceeded to defeat FA Cup winners Blackburn Olympic 6-1. This made them champions of Great Britain, and because there were no other official leagues at that time, champions of the world. After the turn of the 20th century, they have been markedly less successful, spending most of the time since then outside of the top league. Since relegation in 1985, the team has played in the second and third divisions. The Sons, as they're known, play their home matches at the 2,000-seat Dumbarton Football Stadium, in the shadow of Dumbarton Rock and Dumbarton Castle atop it. These historic landmarks are symbolized on the club's badge by the elephant and castle. Before moving to that stadium in 2000, their home ground for the previous 131 years was Boghead Park, marking the longest use of a single ground by any senior British club.

March 2012 Winner

FC Slavia-Mozyr (Belarus)
FC Slavia-Mozyr is the club of the city of Mozyr, in the Gomel Province of Belarus. They will play in the Belarusian Premier League in 2012, having won promotion last year from the second division "First League", where they spent the previous six years. During their previous stint in the top flight, from 1995 to 2005, they won the double (the league title and the Belarusian Cup) twice. FC Slavia-Mozyr, the club's name since 2008, is but one of many the organization has had since being formed in 1987. Previous names include: FC Polesie Mozyr, MPKC Mozyr, and FC Mozyr-ZLiN. That last name was used just after their most recent relegation in 2006, when Slavia-Mozyr and neighboring club ZLiN Gomel were forced to merge in order to avoid financial collapse. The city of Mozyr, an oil-refining center that dates its founding to the 12th century, endured severe radioactive fallout from the 1986 accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, 100 km away.

February 2012 Winner

Valur (Iceland)
Valur FC is one of the teams of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland and population center of 120,000. Valur isn't their only team, however; four other teams in the first division Úrvalsdeild also call the world's northernmost capital home, as do another five in the second division, and more still in lower divisions. Seasons run through the summer, roughly May to September, when daily temperatures in Reykjavík range from low 40s to mid 50s Fahrenheit. Valur celebrated their centennial last year; the club was originally founded as part of the Icelandic YMCA in 1911. They are one of the most successful teams in Iceland, their twenty league titles putting them just behind the leader, Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur (KR), who have 25. Valur's home stadium is Hlíðarendi stadium, capacity 3,000, recently renamed Vodafonevöllurinn due to sponsorship with Vodafone. The name Valur is the Icelandic word for gyrfalcon, a large, white species of falcon found in Arctic areas.

January 2012 Winner

Zamalek SC (Egypt)
Zamalek SC is one of the two biggest and most successful teams in the Egyptian Premier League. They represent the city of Giza, famous for ancient Egyptian monuments such as the Great Pyramid and Great Sphinx. The club's origins date to 1911, and it has undergone several name changes in its history: from Kasr El-Nile Club, to Mokhtalat in 1913, to Farouk Al Awal in 1940 in honor of King Farouk, to El Zamalek after the king was overthrown in 1952. The club has many successes in its history, having won the league 11 times, the Egyptian Cup 21 times, and the CAF Champions League 5 times. Their arch-rivals are Al Ahly, who they face in one of the fiercest derbies in world soccer, the Cairo Derby. Before current crowd limits were enforced, Cairo Derby games have seen more than 120,000 fans packed into Cairo International Stadium. Both Zamalek and Al Ahly currently use this stadium, the third biggest in Africa with a current official capacity 75,000, for home matches.

December 2011 Winner

Vahe Kolo (Tonga)
Vahe Kolo is the soccer club of the city of Kolo, in the South Pacific archipelago Kingdom of Tonga. The team was founded in 1974, and plays in the top (and only) league, the 10-team Tonga Major League. The squad flourished through the 1980s and '90s. They haven't met with the same success at the league level in recent years, despite being known for playing an attacking style of football. Vahe Kolo play at the 4,000-seat Vahe Kolo Arena on the island of Ata. The nation of Tonga itself is made up of 176 islands in a 270,000 square mile area of ocean, though just 52 islands are inhabited. The sport of soccer is overshadowed in Tonga by rugby, a sport in which the tiny island nation has done remarkably well against far larger country's teams.

November 2011 Winner

Gaziantepsor (Turkey)
Gaziantepspor are the top-level football team in Gaziantep, Turkey. Founded in 1969, the Şahinler (or Falcons) have been in the top league (Süper Lig) since 1990. Their home city of Gaziantep, population 1.3 million, is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world; some scholars date its founding to 3650 B.C. The outline of the historic Gaziantep Castle is represented by the top of the team’s crest, while the red and black diamond background pays homage to the city's most famous dessert: pistachio baklava. Gaziantep is home to another pro soccer team, Gaziantep Büyükşehir Belediyespor, though since they play in the second division (1. Lig), the two teams rarely face each other. The Falcons have seen some action in European competitions. They reached the 3rd round of the 2003-04 UEFA Cup before being eliminated by Italy's A.S. Roma, and they got to the 3rd qualifying round of the current (2011-12) Europa League, but were knocked out by Poland's Legia Warsaw.

September 2011 Winner

Asante Kotoko FC (Ghana)
Asante Kotoko FC is the team of Kumasi, Ghana's second largest city, population 1.5 million. The club was founded in 1926, and went through several names, including Ashanti United, Kumasi Titanics and Mighty Atoms, before settling on Kumasi Asante Kotoko in 1935. Because the kotoko, or porcupine, is the symbol of the Ashanti nation, the team had to obtain the permission of the King of Ashanti for the name. The club has been one of the most successful in Africa. They won the CAF Champions League twice, in 1970 and 1983, and were named Africa's Club of the 20th Century by IFFHS. The crest's motto, "Kum apem a, apem beba", means "if you kill a thousand of us, a thousand more will come". The Ghanian club formed a partnership with English Premier League side Sunderland in July, 2011.

Vitesse (French for "speed") play in the Eredivisie, the top league in the Netherlands. Though they have been a successful team, they have never been considered among the ranks of the elite clubs of Dutch football with PSV, Feyenoord, and Ajax. Vitesse have qualified for UEFA Cup nine times since 1990, the last time in 2002/03, but have so far failed to progress beyond the third round. Their home ground is the GelreDome, a 26,000-capacity multipurpose stadium with a retractable roof and retractable pitch, since copied in the U.S. by the NFL's Arizona Cardinals' stadium. One nickname of the team is FC Hollywood aan de Rijn (FC Hollywood on the Rhine).

Thanda Royal Zulu FC (South Africa)
Thanda Royal Zulu FC is based in the harbor town of Richards Bay, in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. The team has been moved and renamed a lot over the years. Their roots go back to Cape Town's Hellenic FC, an amateur side founded by Greek South Africans. The team was sold in 2004, moved across the country and became Benoni Premier United. Three years later it was sold again, to a Swedish consortium that includes former England and Côte d'Ivoire boss Sven-Göran Eriksson. The team was then moved to KwaZulu-Natal and renamed Thanda Royal Zulu. The home ground of Amabhubesi ("the lions" in Zulu) is Richards Bay Stadium, capacity 8,000. They play in the National First Division, the second highest league in South Africa. They qualified for promotion playoffs in 2011, but were eliminated by Port Elizabeth's Bay United FC.
