    The FIFA World Cup is less than 2 months away and I am inviting SCS members to join in the fun of my privately run tipping competition which I have run successfully over the 2 previous world cups. Please note that I have sought and received permission to promote this comp on the site however it is not an official SCS scores competition.

    The general concept is to pick a final score for each game (ie number of goals for each team) and points are awarded based on picking the right result (win, lose or draw) with bonus points awarded based on the accuracy of goal selections. Note that tips and results are submitted by email and there is a small fee (probably $10). However it is not intended to provide the winner with a huge windfall cash gain but rather as a bit of fun for those who aren't avid soccer followers (like me) but do take an interest at World Cup time. For those used to tipping in AFL football games the interesting difference when tipping soccer games is the possible of 3 relatively equally likely outcomes rather than 2.

    To register your interest please PM me an email address and I will send out full details and updates.

    For those avid soccer followers (you are most welcome to join) but please don't hold it against me that I have used the term soccer. I thought it was clearer in a predominantly AFL forum.

    Wow big numbers! I assume it’s not winner takes all in that case. Either way, look forward to it. Once I get your email I’ll send it to some mates that might be interested.

    Yes and hopeful of getting more this time. Already up to about 40 confirmed starters in a few days.

    No it’s not winner takes all. Last time the prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I also like to give people that fall off the pace something to play for so there was also a prize for the highest scorer in round 1 (16 games), round 2 (16 games), round 3 (16 games) and knockouts (16 games).

    Final prizes will depend on numbers but I would expect something similar this time.

    A bit of an update (and bump) for those who may be considering this.

    Up to 63 entries now.

    A few more details.

    • Small entry fee ($10)
    • Tip a final score for each of the 64 matches
    • Points awarded for picking correct result (win/loss/draw)
    • Bonus points awarded based on accuracy of score selections (note bonuses increase as event proceeds)
    • 2 separate categories (using same set of tips); first is simple highest scorer for the event and the second see tipsters drawn into groups and then advance to subsequent stages or be eliminated in the same way that occurs in the actual World Cup.
    • Tips submitted in batches throughout the event (group stage round 1, group stage round 2, etc)
    • Cash prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd in each category.
    • World Cup starts on 15th June (which actually coincides with the bye rounds in SuperCoach)
