Predicting the matches

Predict the end score of all the matches in the in both the Premiership and Championship leagues.
You have until 15 minutes before the start of the first match of the week to add or change your prediction.
The server time is used. No discussion about that, so be on time if you want to fill in your scores.

The bonus questions

You can earn 5 extra points per round during the tournament with a bonus question. This question must be answered before 12 am on the Sunday night of the round.

The scoring

In the round robin phase, the scores at the end of the game are used for the calculation of the points. For final rounds, the score at the end of the game including extra time is used.

Here’s how you earn points:

If you predict the exact final score you get 5 points.
or
If you predict the winner/drawn game WITHOUT also getting the exact score you get 3 points.
(You can only get points for the exact score or winner/drawn game, you can’t have both).

If you predict one of the teams exact score you get 3 points.

If you predict the exact points difference you get 3 points. (e.g final score is 5-10 and you predicted 10-15).

Bonus Question is 5 points and there is one every week.

The maximum you can score per game is 11 points, this consists of 5 points for the exact final score and 3 points each for the exact team score.

If you want to view the ranking, then go to the ranking page. If you’re logged in, then the league for which you subscribed, is automatically picked.

Same ranking?

When multiple users have the exact same amount of points, then the following sorting rules are applied to the ranking (most important one at the top):

  1. amount of exact score points;
  2. amount of winner/draw points;
  3. amount of correct bonus questions.

In the event that there are still two or more players with the same score after the above is taken into consideration, I will put the top player’s names in a hat a draw one out at random.

Prizes.

The highest points scored for the week (not in total) will get a prize pack of their favourite Whittakers chocolate, a family bag of M&Ms and something else I haven’t thought of yet.

The overall winner will get an awesome glass looking trophy with your name on it.

unsubscribing.

If you unsubscribe partway through the season and then rejoin later, you will start from that week only and none of your points from the previous weeks will be recognised as legit.
