"We are living proof that this is not the case and week in week out our teams meet up before the big match to play in our league and our cup competitions.
"WorldNET is the culmination of the season and is looked forward to by all.
"Internet football is not just about winning. It's about taking part and building bridges between rival sets of supporters. We play real games with real results, the best of which is the friendship built up between those who love of the beautiful game."
