[tps_title]Around the Continent[/tps_title]

Our Around the Continent feature is back with so many leagues back in action. We intend to keep you abreast of all the news from around the European continent so make sure to check it out every week.

So far Spain, Portugal, France, Holland, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Austria and Poland have kicked off their seasons. The Serbian, Hungarian and Swiss seasons get started this coming weekend. The Turkish league resumes this weekend after a three month hiatus.

We do everything we can to stay on top of developments in each country but cannot always keep up with it so this is where we need your help. Keep us informed of events when they happen in your country. Don’t hesitate to let us know if we have missed something or made a mistake. If you have a tournament write to us.
