  • The following step has become necessary due to the current economic crisis and the possibility that Lycos U.S. might shut down
    the free webhosting service in the near future (as Lycos U.K. already has announced to do) :
    If you like this JavaTM game and if you want to contribute to the hosting and update costs,
    then please send at least 1 Euro (or the equivalent in your local currency) together with the word SOCCER and your eMail address

    (transfers from Germany : Bankleitzahl (BLZ) 30020900 ; Konto Nr. 1304680160 )
    You can write your eMail address as 'abc(at)def.xy' or 'abc_at_def.xy' if the entry form of your banking system
    does not support the 'at' sign.

    You will then be informed about updates (and you will receive a game password when this becomes necessary).
    Your eMail address will only be used for this purpose.
    If you send 25 Euro you become a "Silver" sponsor of the game (50 Euro = "Gold" ; 100 Euro = "Platinum") and your name
    will be entered into a sponsor-list on this webpage (in this case include "NAME:....." in the subject-line of your transfer)
