The PoliNation Games were proposed two matched association football entertainment which includes the Dale Republic v DES Senya and the Dale Republic v MicroWiki VI. The event is named after the 2012 PoliNation academic conference which will take place in London while the matches which are planned to take place after the second day of the conference, will take place 30 miles away in the Dale Republic. It was cancelled due to the Dale Republic being inactive.

The Polination Games were going to be record breaking event with the greatest distance traveled for a intermicronational friendly with the first match, the Dale Republic v DES Senya , being 120 miles between DES Senya and the pitch where the game will be played, this was later broken again when Ladonia replaced Senya as the first game competitors. The second match the Dale Republic v MicroWiki VI will include the first multi micronational football team which will include players from other micronations from around europe.

Development and preparation

Venues and infrastructure

From the beginning the intended pitch was the Churchill Stadium at the City of St. John's, Dale Republic and that choice of pitch wasn't changed. The orginal idea of using a full size pitch was however dropped due to finalcial issues of paying for a full size football pitch for the 2 intended hours of hire. As a result of this cost cutting the games was later decided to played of 1 third of full pitch size.

The Polination games have 3 official logos, in 3 different forms of the same style of logo which has the badges of all of the teams taking part, Dale national football team, Senya national football team and the Microwiki VI Football Team. The three versions are black, gold and silver. The black version is the generic and more wide spread logo while the gold and silver versions have a currently secret use, there for the logo is protected from use and is intended to be used and printed only in and for the Dale Republic. The original design which contained the logos of the teams competing in the games, but was later changed due to Senya no longer being able to compete and Ladonia not having an F.A. or national football team badge.

Date 3:15pm 15 July 2012
Venue Churchill Stadium, St. Johns
Referee Barnaby Hands (Senya)


The Dale Republic v Ladonia was originally a match between the Dale Republic and Senya and was a highly noticeable match mainly for it being the post Polination 2012. The new fixture broke the original predicted record for the greatest distance between two nations playing each other, with Senya being 120 miles from the pitch in the Dale Republic, which beat the first record of 6 miles when Pambia lost 6-2 against the Senyan's back in May 2011, the new distance is a far greater 635 miles seperating the two micronations.
