What is ConvAutoCAD?

Stadiums have been described as the hardest part of the Fifa series to edit. People who have mastered this science have become very popular for their great work, it especially seems to be guys from Italy.

Now over at FifaCenter they decided to write a Converter for AutoCAD users to make this process a lot easier. Here it is, the ConvAutoCAD v.01.

Click for larger image

The excellent G3 stadium over at FifaCenter was designed using ConvAutoCAD. So if you have access to AutoCAD then this looks like a great tool for designing your stadiums. Check this all out over at FifaCenter and download your copy of this great little AutoCAD extension.

Euro-Ball says goodbye

Euro-Ball, one of the oldest FIFA community sites has shutdown. Euro-Ball was one of the best soccer gaming sites out there, in particular when their downloads area was very active and they released some very popular Euro-Ball patch collections. They were always filled with downloads, great people, forums, and exclusive news.

We wish them all the best with their future work and thank them for their dedication to all our causes during the time of running their excellent Euro-Ball site. Thanks guys.

Tournaments Prizes Clarification

Just a quick note to clarify some issues with prizes.
  • The prizes will be $250 for the winner of each league
  • There will be a random $50 prize to one person from each league
  • The prizes will be in the form of casino accounts - courtesy of Casino-on-net - these can be exchanged for cash but why bother where over at Casino-on-net you can play all the classic casino games and make much more than the prizes on offer !
I hope this has made things clear now.

What can we say but 5 v 1 !!!

I have just returned after a night out watching England annihilate a strong German side. I don't think I have ever witnessed a match like it. I think the German's scoring early only helped to wake England up and from then on they dominated the match. Michael Owen was awesome and England played as a solid unit. Well done to Sven and the boys.

As I am out most of today there will not be much news but please don't forget all the fantastic Menus and Skins Shlomy has provided for you recently.

As a celebration of the England victory why not check out the cool images of Beckham, Scholes and Owen which you can get direct from the Soccer Gaming Download Centre.
