Hall of Fame: The First Ones
Jugger often starts thanks to the attachment and sweat of one or a few persons who, against all odds, hold to the thought that there must be Jugger in their country (and, most important, close to them). When Jugger starts rolling in their country, they have rightfully earned a shining title for their achievement: That of the "Jugger zero", or "Juggermaster zero". The name is inspired by their wish that Jugger will spread through the country like a positive kind of epidemic. And first sources of those are also called the "Number Zero".
To honour those first ones, here comes the list of Jugger zero's around the world. It is, of course, incomplete and needs your help to be continued—contact us if you know one more, or detect an error or inaccurate report!
Also, this "Hall of Fame" will be completed with photos and a more appealing layout, of course.

I am Jugger follows Jugger players all around the world and will share the lives of these young athletes; their impressions and styles of play, capturing the passion they feel for this sport and show the differences to other major sports and the activity in different countries like Spain, Germany, Ireland and United States. We travel with a select group of jugger players to the World Tournament in Berlin, where they will try to win the ultimate prize in this relatively unknown sport.
We will see different explanations of the rules, styles and strategies used by different teams, and follow them as they train and prepare for games together.
(Just a word of warning, IndieGoGo seems to think that eating processor time through shiny app overload is a good idea).
There are official statements from Setanta Ireland Jugger Club, over 60 Juggers of Germany (and other countries), Jugger Vancouver and some individual voices of tournament organizers.
Of course, a statement of TE in the matter would be welcome here as well.
