September 8th, h. 21:15 France :FRA 10   :NZL New Zealand


Scoring System: Basic number of points is 10

If you predict right winner for a match or a draw, you will get 10 points regardless of the point difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct point difference or a draw) you will earn 10+20=30 points.

Depending on difference between your prediction and actual result, earned points will differ.

TB Rules

If two or more contestants have the same number of points at the end, Tie-Break rule will be applied to break the tie.

Number or perfect predictions throughout the contest will be compared for the involved contestants. If they are still tied, number of second best scores will be compared, then number of third best results and so on.



Contestant 1: 3x25, 2x24, 2x23, 2x22

Contestant 2: 3x25, 2x24, 2x23, 1x22

Contestant with most points wins the competition.


The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Matches and Top 3 Predictions.


You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the matches you predicted AND which haven't started. 

In order to earn points from the start, you should post your predictions before the start of the first match of the World Cup - September 8th, h. 21:15 (GMT +2).



You can EDIT your predictions whenever you want until the start of the first match of the Prediction Design Post. Once competition starts, you are not allowed to edit your post and any further changes will be ignored. On contestant's request, edited predictions will be accepted, but contestant will earn 0 points for finished matches and the matches that have started. Moment at the latest editing will be considered as the entry moment, in other words.
