Predicting the matches
Predict the end score of all the matches in ‘Your Prediction Sheet‘ you will have around 15-20 fixtures a week but this can vary. You have until 60 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction. The server time is used. No discussion about that, so be on time if you want to fill in your scores.
The bonus questions
You can earn extra points during the week with the bonus questions. These questions must be answered before a given date and time. Each questions shows the points you can earn. So it is really worth checking back daily so you don’t miss out on points.
The scores at the end of the game are used for the calculation of the scores. For knockout games, the score at the end of the game including extra time is used. Goals in a penalty shoot-out are not taken into consideration.
You get points for predicting the correct winner of the match or prediction of a draw. We call this the toto score. In case you also predict the exact amount of goals scored, you get extra points. We call this the full score. If you got the goals correct you get the extra goal bonus, even if you didn’t get the match result correct (e.g. match ends in 1-1 and you predicted 0-1 you will still get 1 point). The last scoring options is the goal difference bonus: if you predict the correct winner, not the exact score, but you predicted the correct difference in goals, you get the goal difference bonus (e.g. you predicted 3-1 or 4-2 and result is 2-0).

If you want to view the ranking, then go to the ranking page and pick the correct league. If you’re logged in, then the league for which you subscribed, is automatically picked.
From 18/01/18 onwards, every game week there will be at least one game chosen as a golden game. The game will be announced via social media, as at present there is no icon to identify the golden game. For this specific game, all points scored will be doubled. All you have to do is enter your predictions as normal for the game. This makes it less hassle than the previous golden ball feature.
The golden ball (No longer active) Each player has one golden ball. If you place this ball next to a match the score for that match is multiplied by 2. You may place the golden ball next to every match and you can change your mind and move the golden ball, as long this match is still changeable. The golden ball is activated after the prediction for the match is locked. Once activated the golden ball cannot be moved anymore.
The League system
Each season in our football predictor game lasts a week, with the top two players and the bottom two from each league moving up or down a league depending on the division. Below outlines the promotion/relegation process for each league. Although there is currently no prizes on offer there is a lot of pride at stake and the most successful players will make ‘The Hall of Fame’.
- Gold Division – Highest league (no promotion) – Relegation to Silver Division
- Silver Division – Promotion to Gold Division – Relegation to Bronze Division
- Bronze Division – Promotion to Silver Division – Lowest league (no relegation)
A typical league will consist of around 8-12 players per league (may vary). Each season players will be given 15-20 fixtures to predict (may vary), as well as a number of bonus questions. We will plan to use a variety of matches ranging from Non-league to Premier League and there should be a chance to earn points every day, whether that be through bonus questions or predictions. Every Thursday the leagues and predictions will be updated and scores reset for the ‘new season’, below you will find what a typical weekly season looks like:
