Banijan bid to host AOCAF 57

The Royal Banijan Soccer Association are officially submitting their bid to the AOCAF to host the 57th edition of the Atlantian Oceania regional championships.

Banijan National Information

The Kingdom of Banija is a country that classifies itself as a semi-constitutional monarchy. A nation that is freshly a member of Atlantian Oceania, it is led by the Kabaka(which translates to King), and the current monarch is Kabaka Albert III. The Kabaka, alongside with the Waziri(translates to Foreign Minister), whom he picks and dismisses solely at his pleasure, is the Head of State and responsible for the country's foreign affairs.

The Lukiiko(translates to Parliament) is a democratically-elected, constituency-based, first past the post, legislature that has the power of the purse and controls all legislative affairs for the country. The Lukiiko, every term, elects the Katikkiro(Prime Minister), who picks a cabinet and leads the government. Racially, the nation is 99.2% black. This is a very religious based Christian nation, as 92% of Banijans are affiliated with the state church, the Puritan Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, whose followers are called Puritan Mormons. Shia Islam & Sikhism are the next largest religious communities, each at 3% of the national population. The Guardian Council, a council of 6 members, with 3 picked by the Kabaka from the House of Katende(the royal house), and 3 picked by the Church, has the ability to oppose laws based on religious grounds. It takes a 5-1 majority on the Guardian Council to reject any bill passed by the Lukiiko.

Due to the massive influence of Puritan Mormonism in this nation, they are relatively socially conservative. Abortion in this country is outlawed unless the mother's life is in danger, and the church's Universal Call to Motherhood, which teaches that the destiny of each and every woman is to give birth to children and raise faithful Puritan Mormons, has heavily shaped the nation's view on the role of women in society. Therefore, it is against the law for any professional sports teams based in Banija to have men and women on the team. However, this law only applies to teams based in Banija, which is why it is perfectly legal when foreign-based teams, either for away games or when Banija hosts tournaments, to have people of any gender. Consumption of alcohol in Banija is legal.

Of course, Banija is a 3rd world country by modern economic standards. A general lack of development in Banija, we are a country with excellent sporting infrastructure, but little else. Most roads are dirt, and while public transit within cities is excellent, between cities it is not. The climate of Banijan has a lot of natural rainforest and jungle, which means that there is no winter, only wet season and dry season. Temperatures generally range at their coldest around 60 degrees fahrenheit, and at their hottest around 110 degrees fahrenheit.

Due to the nation?s large Mormon population, there are a number of laws that are not usually seen by foreigners. The sale of coffee is banned within Banija?s borders- however, the consumption is not. Foreigners are encouraged to bring coffee with them flying into Banija, though it must be declared at all ports of entry into the country. Secondly, due to the Mormon influence, polygamy is legal for males, and many males are, indeed, polygamous.

Banijan cuisine, due to the tropical climate, is based a lot on the plantain and the banana. Staple foods are things like matoke, casava, etc? And are also known for being heavy meat eaters. Banijans are known for excessively putting miraculin berries on almost all of their desert options. And, of course, while no major sun block companies operate within Banija?s borders, all stadiums and street watch parties will be ensured to have sun block available for sale for fans.


Scorination will be done with the latest presently existing version of xkoranate.. I will use the SQIS formula with xkoranate (additive) style modifiers. The ranking system used, of course, will be the official AOCAF rankings(as opposed to the KPB rankings), and RP bonus shall be cumulative throughout the entirety of the tournament. A roster shall be worth up to a full matchday's RP bonus.


All games, of course, shall be played on Banijan soil. All group stages shall be single round robin.

Optimal Group Sizes

28 teams- 7 groups of four, top two in each group plus top 4 third place teams advance to Round of 16.
32 teams- 8 groups of four, top two in each group advance to Round of 16.
36 teams- 6 groups of six, top two in each group plus top 4 third place teams advance to Round of 16.
40 teams- 8 groups of five, top two in each group advance to Round of 16.
42 teams- 7 groups of six, top two in each group plus top 2 third place teams advance to Round of 16.
48 teams- 8 groups of six, top two in each group advance to Round of 16.

Non-Optimal Group Sizes
30 teams- 5 groups of six, top three in each group plus top ranked fourth place teams advance to Round of 16.
44 teams- 11 groups of four, group winners plus top five group second place teams advance to Round of 16.
50 teams- 10 groups of five, group winners plus top six group second place teams advance to Round of 16.
54 teams- 9 groups of six, group winners plus top seven group second place teams advance to Round of 16.
56 teams- 8 groups of seven, top two in each group advance to Round of 16.
60 teams- 10 groups of six, group winners plus top six group second place teams advance to Round of 16.
64 teams+- Really large tournament. At that point, I'll devise a decently unique tournament form that won't be straight group stage plus knockout, that'll include home and away games for tournament participants.

The following is an incomplete sampling of the tournaments that we have hosted

World Cup 81(co-hosted with FFR)
World Bowl XXXIV
25th International Basketball Championships(co-hosted w/ Filindostan)
28th World Lacrosse Championships
67th Baptism of Fire(co-hosted w/ Qasden)
Istria Open

Any questions, of course, can be asked here.
