UFWC MascotEvery international football tournament needs a mascot – and now the Unofficial Football World Championships has its very own! This little chap will be representing the UFWC in dinosaur form, and we’re sure he’ll do a fine job.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a name yet. And that’s where we need your help! Post your name suggestions as comments, or use the contact form. The sender of the winning suggestion will get a UFWC prize. We’ll officially name him before the Netherlands vs Scotland match on 28 March.

How does he compare against other football tournament mascots? See here.

    How about Callie? The idea being that it reflects Jim McCalliog, scorer of the winning goal in the 1967 game that is notable in the history of this title. It also invites the suggestion that this dinosaur is related to the Loch Ness Monster (The Loch is part of the Caledonian Canal waterway: the team in Inverness, near the Eastern end of the Loch, is Inverness Caledonian Thistle, nicknamed Caley) and thereby to Scotland in general, and Scotland are both the first hosts and the team likely to top the table for many years to come.

    How about ‘Cleggie’ after the player (JC Clegg) who scored the first and winning goal back in the 1872.

    My idea is FUNO (the first letters of UNOFficial Football World Championships but in the reverse sense…)

    I’m surprised nobody else said this but….how about DINO-MITE!!! or maybe….Soccer-Saur?

    I think he should be Callie, like Kevin says, but my suggestion is Jimmo (first McCalliog name), or Jimmito with a Spanish language touch, because this is a world competition, not only for Scotland, and remember that Argentina is the best non-UK team in the ranking
