I've knocked together a World Cup Prediction competition which I thought might be a bit of fun for everybody on here.

A nice bit of friendly rivalry between the different nations taking part. Evil or Very Mad

Feel free to have a look at the site here and ignore any references to fees and prize money.

I registered! But My account is "not yet active"... do I wait for an email?

What's this you say? A soccer (LOL) fan in America? Surprised Crazy I know... but it's my second favorite sport, after baseball. I'm sure I'm not as knowledgable as some, but I gotta think Brazil wins. Ronaldinho, plus the Italians dealing with a scandal, equals another win for the juggernaut.

Of course I'm picking America to win it all, because GOOOOO USA!!!

Just a reminder that there are only 2 weeks until the big kick-off, so get your entries in!

Come on, let's have some more competition. Razz

I predict that it'll involve some people playing football at some point.
More than that and I'd be clutching at straws Smile

Like the game mistermickster and nice idea but there's only one problem in your fine construction - the quarter finals bring the wrong teams together!

Teams that met in the group stage should not be able to meet again until the final. Using the notation; S=semifinal, Q=quarterfinal, W=group winner, R=group runner up, / = or.
The semis should be
S1=Q1 vs Q2 and S2=Q3 vs Q4
where the quarter should be
Q1=WA/RBvWC/RD
Q2=WE/RFvWG/RH
Q3=WB/RAvWD/RC
Q4=WF/REvWH/RG
Hopefully you'll get a chance to update your logic and notify users before the QFs kick off!!

All the best GMJ

I'm going to pull the plug on this due to lack of interest.

I really thought more people might have a go. Sad
