With the new football season still over six weeks away, some minds will have turned to picking players for their Fantasy teams. As tough as it may be to call between a selection of strikers, casual players know that the hardest decision to make is actually the team’s name.

After all, your mates won’t be impressed by the selection of a decent youngster for £5 million in August, rather a unique and humorous name that make you look like the joker of the pack with top ‘banter’.

To help those in search of a decent name, here are some non-fantasy sides from around the world that can offer some inspiration.

SC Bumpliz

FUSSBALL 2. LIGA INTERREGIONAL: AUFSTEIGER SC BUEMPIZ

Swiss outfit Bumpliz suffered relegation last season, proving that a hilarious name doesn’t always equal decent performances. A small district just outside of the capital Bern, the club was founded in 1989/90 by 10 men, two of whom were comically named Willy Aebi and Helmut Fuchs!

Deportivo Wanka

From the Peruvian Andes, Deportivo Wanka already has quite a cult following in Britain. Named after the indigenous ‘Wankas’ people, sales of replica shirts over here went mad in 2006, selling over 1,000 that year. The Sun quoted a club spokesman who said, “It is very strange. Everyone in Britain seems to think we have a funny name”.

Deportivo Moron

A great name for a Fantasy team that includes Lee Cattermole or a number of players from a rival club! From Argentina, Deportivo Moron play in the third tier so are quite well-known within the country. Their nickname Gallo, which can be translated into English as a rooster or cock, makes them even more noteworthy.

Dinamo Brest

As if the French side Brest wasn’t enough, this Belarussian side have taken it one level further. Sounding more like a rubbish superhero’s name rather than a football club, it hasn’t held the side back as they have remained in the top division since it’s inception, and even won the domestic cup in 2007.

Semen Padang

Sponsored by the local cement company where their name derives, this Indonesian outfit have one of the most outrageous names in world football. There’s more – Padang were even founded by a man called Anwar Anas!

AFC United

Finally, there’s always plenty of players in Fantasy Football who insist on using suffixes like ‘City’, ‘United’ or ‘Town’, and come up with a really boring name like ‘Dortmund City’. It is lazy and offers no creativity, as shown by this Swedish second division team. The ‘A’ stands for Athletic in case you were wondering, surely taking all of five seconds to think of. Back in May, AFC lost a home league game 3-1 to a team that spent the majority of the match with 8 men. Doesn’t get much worse than that.
