Who are the staff?
The administrations team of the FVPA comprise of Kelley, Mark, Spike and Phil.
Kelley is one of the two co-founders of the FVPA and also a member of the EA Gamechanger program.
Kelley started playing Fifa 95 on the PC and has been playing FIFA ever since. He is a massive football fan and about to start his 6th Season as a Football Manager at U14's level showing his dedication to football in all forms. With a lot of hard work, Kelley's job as a full time hands on IT manager has helped shape the FVPA's website and his dedication to the FIFA community has helped get recognition from EA.
Mark is the other co-founder of the FVPA and also a part of the EA Gamechanger program.
Mark started playing football games in the late 70's and has not missed a FIFA game in the series yet. Mark First got involved with the FIFA communities during FIFA 07 in a 1 vs 1 league until he moved onto Beaproleagues where he met Kelley who was running the site. Mark then joined up with Kelley and Bluenilsatis to form BeAProCommunities.
Once VP's were announced to be in clubs Mark and Kelley quickly formed the FVPA with the sole intention of providing online tournaments and has been working with Kelley ever since.
Spike also known as BigZombieMonkey is a part of the EA Gamechanger program and often attends events held for FIFA playtesting and feedback. He has been playing football based video games for 24 years now and helps largely with graphics and web design.
We also have a large team of moderators who are overseen by our global moderator Bluenilsatis who work around the clock to maintain the smooth running of the forums.
The FVPA work hard with EA to give as much vital feedback as they can and in turn are recognised by EA as the leading UK site for clubs.
You can see another of the FVPA promo videos below where EA's Romily Broad recommends the FVPA as:
"the Premier place to play clubs if you speak English".
Another great site to back the FVPA is the very well known and respected FIFASoccerBlog.com
David Bryant (Senior Editor) writes in his article:
We’ve met the guys who run FVPA countless times at FIFA play tests and besides the fact that the website is run extremely well, they’re top blokes as well. What a lot of people won’t know either is that they invest a lot of time in FIFA behind the scenes and amongst their staff are many EA Gamechangers.
The good news is that the FVPA are only going to get bigger and better for FIFA 12 because a major site update is in the works to help make the communities FIFA 12 Clubs experience the very best available. As soon as this happens we’ll let you know but it should launch around the release of FIFA 12.
