I did not see that ITG had reported on that. I wasn't sure that ITTF had already planned to postponed it again?

 

To be honest, I have not been following sports news that closely in May and June. I'm starting with it again as more sports begin to start again after the pandemic break. 

You haven’t missed much :p

 

I didn’t mean to rude by the way.

I have been considering to make a UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League prediction contest for August. 

I know it's unusual to have a club competition prediction contest, but this sports year have been quite unusual. 

 

My initial plan is to have a quite regular football prediction contest. Predict the winner and goal difference in each match. Keep the same point system. However, I do consider to add some additional predictions as it's not a full or "normal" prediction contest.  Users/predictors will predict top goalscorers and top assists for each tournament. That is 4 additional predictions. Users pick two players for each of these prediction questions. Users rank/prioritise the two in each prediction. If the 1st prioritised player top the goalscoring list or equal with one or more players, the predictor will score 7.5 points. If the 2nd prioritised player top the goalscoring list or equal with one or more players, the predictor will score 5 points. These additional predictions will be made before the start of the first match of the prediction contest, August 5th.

 

Notice! Lewandowski and Haaland are both way in front on the top goalscorer list in UCL. Therefore I will exclude them from the top goalscorer prediction question in UCL. Users will be asked to predict which player will score most goals in UCL beside/excluding Lewandowski and Haaland.  In UEL, Galeno will also be excluded as a choice from the top assists list. 

 

I would appreciate to hear from you if this could be interesting?

No, I don't like prediction of scorers/assists mixed with results prediction. Especially not if the competition has already started.

Definitely. For me it actually sounds more interesting than the basic X wins by Y-Z score :p

I like the idea for a UCL or UEL prediction contest.

 

I'm not sure about yhis additional prediction. I think we could do this prediction based only on the next matches. Starting from the zero.
