Clionia Premier League - 1991 Inaugural Season

                                                                                                                                                       Clionia.

                                                                                                             A monarchy in Asia bordered with China, Russia and North Korea.

                                   The year is 1991. The country was split North and South until now. The two countries reunite after the reunification treaty comes into effect, ending Soviet rule in the north for 40 years.

                                                                   
                                                                               This change also comes with each former country's sports leagues as they merge to become super leagues. This is one such example

The first ever football club in the country, started right in the capital city of Seulito. They started out as a travelling team until more and more official clubs started to appear in the country. Since then it's been nothing but success for the Stars, as they brought in 23 Monarch Cups in their over a century long history. They play thier games at the National Stadium where they have been every Saturday for exactly 70 years.

Any in-universe reason they speak Esperanto?

Polish missionaries taught the language to the government in the early 20th century. Over the years it eventually reached the people and it became and official language by 1984.

Quite literally the second club in the country, started when the head of a local athetics club hated the playstyle of Nacia and was tired of the fact that they were only playing clubs from China and Korea. So he gathered the members of his club and challenged Nacia head on becoming the first to defeat them. Since that day Nacia and Urbo have had the hugest football rivalry in all of the country. They play their games at the newly built second Sejong the Great Stadium leaving the first one behind after 60 years.

Founded in 1901, this club is located in the country's business capital, La Trianasoj. They earned the nickname the Louieducks after the widespread popularity of DuckTales and the Donald Duck comics in the 80's and 90's. They play at the country's current oldest stadium, Riverside Stadium where they played since their founding.

So I assume that is why their sponsor is Disney?
 

That, but the main reason being that Disney Clionia's office is in La Trianasoj

Located in the city of Lokastro, the club was founded by a group of Armenian immigrants who formed a club named the "Hayastani Azgayin Akumb" or the "Armenian National Club" in English. The club name switched to Esperanto in 1952 with the Soviet occupation of Northern Clionia. They play their games at the newly renovated Spruce Park.

Located right at the border of Russia, this will be their first season where they can qualify for the Monarch Cup as the club started in Northern Clionia's premiership during the Soviet occupation. They did however win their 12th and final Soviet Cup before the dissolution of the competition. They play their games at January of 15 Stadium.

Founded in 1899, this club would be the three out of the four clubs to form before the league was founded in 1900. The symbol on their crest refers to the city name meaning "exclamation" in Esperanto. The fans sing "My Eyes Adored You" by Frankie Valli after every home victory. They have had every game at Scholar's Park for the last 92 years.
