Dear XI backer,
Thanks to your support, XI was successful in its Kickstarter campaign!
When we first put the project up, the $11,000 target seemed daunting. But thanks to your generosity, the target was not just reached, but far surpassed. 339 backers helped raise over $15,000 for XI.
We are truly grateful for the support you have offered to XI, which has made possible a high-quality quarterly publication on North American soccer in print. This collective support for the vision for XI is as important to us as the contribution you have made.
As XI moves forward into the production phase for issue #1, we would love to continue to hear from you. The XI website, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr are great places for you to follow what is in the works. You can also send your ideas for XI to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or review submission information.
Once again, thank you so much for your support and we look forward to sharing the first issue, which you have made possible, this summer.
The XI team
As the XI Kickstarter drive comes to an end - there are just 50 hours left at the time of writing - thank you once again for ensuring XI hit its target and will be funded. Here's what your money will be going to. We are still looking for your support in spreading the word to find some last-minute backers and hit $15,000, ensuring an ad-free first year for the publication.
Most importantly, though, the XI team is - thanks to you - focused on producing content for issue #1, scheduled for release in July. Submission information can be reviewed here.
Finally, if you'd like to upgrade your reward in the final few hours on Kickstarter, remember all the gifts are cumulative: if you are at the $200 level, for example, you'll receive the lifetime digital subscription and the XI scarf pictured below along with the rewards at all levels below that:
- One year print subscription
- Exclusive XI t-shirt
- XI poster
- XI sticker/pin pack
- Your name listed in the first issue as a backer
Again, thank you for helping to make XI a reality, and please feel free to contact us with any questions.
