We haven't had a contest in a long while so here is one that can land you lots of FP.
Here is how it works:
1. For each scheduled game (See: 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ - Matches - FIFA.com) I will start a Thread in the International Sports Board.
2. Before the game starts you must make a prediction of how the game will turn out using the following format:
Here are some helpful ways to find out who are the players and when the games will start:
Using Google you can find out who is on the team using something like this: Saudi Arabia team lineup. Do note, the coaches can change around players before the match actually starts so you will need to watch your screen for the correct lineup.
You can of course do your own research about the players using official sites and news reports.
What if one just wants to predict who will win can we get something for that?
It cannot just be who will win as that will be very easy. Imagine predicting the outcome of let's say a Germany vs Iran match… everyone will win on that prediction. It has to be the score they win by and the goals the opposing team made. In other words, the final match scores.
I am only going for the 200 FP by trying to predict the scores of the games. While I have not been watching Football as much as before due to other things going on I will see just how well I can do this.
Contest Update: Based on the results of this match: Spain vs Russia we need to update this contest since matches can go into penalties.
If you decide a game will go to a draw the final score does NOT have to be how many penalties they make but you do need to state who will win AND the draw score.
X country 2 - Y country 2 with X country winning on penalties.
The World Cup has come to a close with France as the winners. Thanks to all of you who participated in the various Football (Soccer) Threads. This contest is now closed.
