Hello - Welcome to CC and the Foundry ;-)

You should find some useful information in the [Official] Conquer Club Mapmaker Handbook
If you still have questions after browsing those topics, feel free to ask any specific questions in the Foundry Discussions subforum - you should find people eager to help and give any advice in there.

[Moved]

This map has been moved into the Ideas subforum, as it does not meet the criteria for a Working Draft:

Drafting Room Guidelines

To be considered a Working Draft a project must be more than just an idea; a Draft should have a clear thematic focus, a plan for how the gameplay will work, and a basic image which should include:
    1. Territory Labels - temporary names or numbers will suffice, and are always open to change.
    2. Borders/Paths/Impassables - it should be made clear where territories do/do not connect.
    3. Bonus Areas - where combinations/groups of territories will award a bonus, this should be indicated on the map.
    4. Legend - speculative bonus values and explanations of any attack rules or gameplay features.
Draft images should generally not be larger than 630x600px (small image) or 840x800px (large image).


Cheers

US football! Packers vs. Cowboys 100 yard field to reinact the 1967 Ice Bowl, background setting "Lambeau Feild", 4 strings from 1 end of the field to the other with 1 territory for each 10 yard marker, 2 (1 at each end) more strings ending at the 30 for field goals. If you get a string of 10 you gain 7 additional troops, if you get one of the 2 shorter strings you get 3 additional troops.
what do you think? Does it have a chance?

almost every map has a chance mate!

this has been attempted before, without success, mainly because the map maker didnt wish to continue.

No

Your idea is too specific

Both greenoaks and crazy are right. Whilst football and sports maps in general are doable, and I am sure one day we will get a football one, yours is going to be very specific. Get it toned down. You would never get permission to use any teams colours, logos, names anyway. The foundry is a long process and you will need to listen to and modify your map. Come up with a simple draft and lets look at that.
