I don't think Predictor would really work would it? Everyone would have to submit a team daily, and it would get stretched once you were down to the semi finals.

I think the easiest is to allow people to manage a "bracket" - for those fans of US College Basketball its like tipping the NCAA tournament.

Using the link that Super provided - enter the scores for all the group matches... and having done that Draw up a list of Group Winners and Group Runners up.

Type these in the Entry.

Then for each round enter the teams you think will progress to the next round - so of the 8 matches just type the 8 teams...

16 teams that will come out of groups - 5 points for each correct answer - totally correct answer regardless of winning group or not is 80 points
8 teams that win the 2nd Round and enter Quarter Finals - 10 points for each answer - correctly answering all quarter finalists is 80 points
4 teams that get into the Semi Finals - 20 points each - correctly answering all semi-finalists gets you 80 points
2 teams get into the Final - 40 points each correct answer - correctly answering all finalists gets you.... yes you've guessed right...... 80 points
Predict Winner - 80 points

So grand total of 400 points to be won for a perfect tipster.

In the event of a tie Break - countback is the number of correct picks of group winners - after that its a tie.


Not too complicated ----- I hope... just an idea...

Well, I can run one ..

We would need 32 to do a proper World Cup but if we get less then we'll go for the classic format.

So I will have to sit this one out TD and give others a chance (see my performance in regular season Smile Smile )
