Freekick 3 includes some made up teams. If you want to use more realistic
teams, you can either convert Sensible World of Soccer teams to Frekick 3
teams or use football-data-fetcher
( to fetch team
data from Wikipedia and convert that data to Freekick 3 teams.

To use Sensible World of Soccer teams (PC format), use the utility swos2fk
(compiled using make). Usage:

  $ mkdir ~/.freekick/share/teams
  $ bin/swos2fk ~/.freekick3/share/teams/ path/to/swos/PC/Data/TEAM.*

This will create the Freekick 3 teams in directory ~/.freekick3/share/teams.

To use the data from football-data-fetcher, you can use the script
wikifetcher under src/tools, which will convert the data to Freekick 3
teams. Usage:

  $ cd src/tools/wikifetcher
  $ python2 ordering.txt /path/to/fetcher/output \

The fetcher output path is the directory with subdirectories like UEFA,
