Championship Football by Hemsoft
Welcome to the all new home of the play by mail football club management game, Championship Football, created by Paul Hemmings which has been running since 1988.

This site is intended for the players to get together and chat, ask questions and generally find out more about the intricacies of the game, and for me to relay information and run the weekly vidiprinter service. If you are not currently in the game you should send me an email stating your name and address and your favorite teams.

email: hemsoft@fsmail.net

Once you have a club in the game I can set you up on this forum.

Your username will be yourfirstname@teamname

Fri 27 Oct - 8:47 by Paul Hemmings
The computer which holds CF is about 25 years old now and has just failed to boot all morning, so it looks like I will need to transfer CF to a more modern system. 

This will include a full upgrade of the software so it can run on a modern system, then restore the results from week 5 and try booting the modern system and check to make sure it all worked.

It's just a matter of buying the new …

Season 28 Week 5 processing...
Mon 23 Oct - 10:57 by Paul Hemmings
Welcome to week 5 in which we have the first of the five rounds of International football and i'm looking forward to seeing those games because some of you have prepared your sides extremely well and we may well get a few shock results this season, which always adds to the excitement. The World Cup is especially wide open this year.

The reset is underway...
