Romanian football[edit]

I wish to request a new Task force concerning Romanian Football. -aquascape —Preceding comment was added at 12:15, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

current policy requires support from at least 4 or 5 willing contributors, if you can find people that are willing to participate and get them to offer support here, you will be allowed to set it up. Please note that Task forces that fall out of use will be subject to deletion. King of the NorthEast 12:24, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Task force vs. Sub-project[edit]

Can anybody quickly tell me what the difference between a task force and a sub-project is in this context? Thanks. Wiggy! (talk) 13:05, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

German football[edit]

I'd like to get this off the ground: Wikipedia:WikiProject German football. It's past due. Wiggy! (talk) 16:30, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Task force guidelines[edit]

After no dissent from the notice at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football#Sub-project/Taskforce reform, I've added the guidelines to this page. If you wish to edit or amend these or remove or add sections or just plain don't like them - be bold and change them. Nanonic (talk) 21:19, 5 January 2008 (UTC)


I've started my own wiki on the European Football Championship,, can you help me? Thanks Ciaociao (talk) 18:10, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

European Football[edit]

I know there is a sub-project for English Football but would a European one be a good idea? Any responses, put them down here. (If it's a good idea, I want to be the guy who takes the credit!) 2o-DeMoN-o8 (talk) 16:55, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

It may be useful for you to read Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Task forces and sub-projects#Determining editor interest and the suggestions there for publicising/garnering opinion for this, as not that many people watch this page. Nanonic (talk) 23:35, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Taskforce on Youth Football[edit]

A taskforce similar to Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Taskforce on women's football to help with the articles involving Youth Football across the world. I belive this is a good idea as not enough attention on Wikipedia is focused on the editing of Youth Football articles and bringing them up to GA or FA status, or just getting them out of Stub-Class. To support click here! I don't care if you contribute, but stop by and see how it's going!

Whoever it is that proposed this, it's a good idea, although it doesn't need a whole WikiProject on its own. It can just be a taskforce. In any case I'm on board with this.
If anyone else supports the idea of a youth football taskforce and would like it to be created, include your name with an asterisk and three tildes * ~~~ below. Thanks. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 18:09, 15 July 2014 (UTC)


Taskforce On Association Football Variants[edit]

We are a new taskforce, looking to categorise and improve articles about variations of football, like Futsal or Beach Soccer.

We need members, and it would really help if you joined us - 2o-DeMoN-o8t*c*a*wp 15:15, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Taskforce on Scottish Football[edit]

A new taskforce, like the WikiProject Scottish Football was, except with more members. Anyone intrested? 2o-DeMoN-o8t*c*a*wp 16:11, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

I'd be interested (though i'm not sure how much i'll be contributing - I tend to be an occasional list article creator at the moment). Scottish football deserves greater exposure, given its history in the game. I'm also currently working on 19th century Scottish cup seasons, and could do with lots of help on this (i.e. 19th century club articles). Nevertheless, we need more enthusiasm from other members, it seems... Macarism (talk) 16:53, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

National Team Task Force[edit]

I will make this task force if people want it. Our goals would be (among others) to:

  • Get most national teams to FA or GA level
  • Make a schedule section for every team
  • A Current Squad section for every team
  • Create pages for Goalscorers in major or semi-major events, e.g. World Cup qualifying


Use 3 tildes if you would like a Task Force about this

Comment: Think this already exists. Hmlarson (talk) 22:36, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Taskforce on Finnish Football[edit]

A new taskforce has been established on Wikipedia:WikiProject Football/Finland task force. New members are welcome to join. The first issue to address is the naming of Finnish League articles and an interesting debate is taking place on the Talk Page.

African football task force[edit]

There needs to be a task force for African football to help maintain season articles for the various African leagues that exist. Not really sure of which contributors to call upon though. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 17:47, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Actually, maybe I can call upon Lglukgl, Skyblueshaun, League Octopus, Chanheigeorge, TheBigJagielka and Matty.007 given the work they've done creating and maintain season articles of various African leagues, the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 17:54, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Basically, just like any other task force this one's mandate would be to create, update and maintain articles on:

If you'd like an African football task force to be created just use three tildes as follows below: * ~~~ Thanks. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 18:00, 15 July 2014 (UTC)



I just laid out the foundation for the task force. Anyone else wishing to join can get themselves to the task force page. Thanks. Davykamanzitalkcontribsalter ego 01:39, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Brazilian football task force.[edit]

I wish to request a new Task force concerning Brazilian football. Users Guilherme and Caioedu5 already agreed to join too, and I'm waiting for the answers of Jun19, Lucas Gaúcho and Tárik Savietto Feres.

Thanks, MYS77 03:12, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

This message might get more publicity (and hence more acceptance by the WikiProject as a whole) if you posted at WT:FOOTY as well. – PeeJay 11:41, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I participate. Lucas Gaúcho (talk) 18:09, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Only foreign players and brazilian lower division foreign players

@Lucas Gaúcho: @Guilherme: @Caioedu5: @Tárik Savietto Feres: @Jun19: @MYS77:

I created the page for a new Football in Brazil task force in cooperation with the Sports task force of WikiProject Brazil. I hope you are all still interested in participating. Many articles have already been tagged with Brazil=yes. giso6150 (talk) 13:38, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
