The International Virtual Pro Association is the governing body of virtual pro football. It's official membership is two clubs and three national teams. It's headquarters is in London, England, and its president is Daniel Lewis. The IVPA is responsible for the organisation of virtual pro football tournaments such as the Premier League.
The Enfield Saints was founded in the second half of 2010 and with it, the IVPA was born. Most of the association was built on rules set by the Saints, with seasons passing, more and more rules were created along with awards. The first and second international teams, England and Scotland, were formed on 31 December 2013, however the first international fixture was not played until 7 January 2013. There has always been dire need of more clubs in the IVPA and so far, the only club is the Enfield Saints.
Recognitions and awardsEdit
The IVPA does not yet have awards for players or teams, however there are planned awards if the IVPA grows. These awards are Player of the Season, Team of the Season, Golden Boot, Golden Eye, Golden Shield, Golden Glove and IVPA Goal of the Season, there would be a similar set of awards but for tournaments. From 2010 to 2015 the Enflied Saints awards were the only in the IVPA and acted as temporary placeholders for all IVPA awards.
Governance and rule developmentEdit
