HOW IT WORKS
Every week, KICK OFF will select 10 high-profile football matches from around the world, and give you the chance to predict the score of those matches.
The closer you get to the score, the higher your points – it's as simple as that.
'The Predictor competition will run from August 2017 to May 13, 2018.
In the event that users are tied on points, the user with the higher accuracy percentage will be declared the winner. If those users have the same accuracy percentage, a random draw will determine the winner.
There are only THREE ways you can earn points – EXACT SCORE, MARGIN and RESULT
EXACT SCORE: If you correctly predict the exact score in a match, you are awarded 5 points.
MARGIN: If you correctly predict the margin (the goal difference in a result) you are awarded 3 points
RESULT: If you correctly guess which team won and lost, or a draw, you earn 2 points
For example, Manchester United beat Chelsea by 2-0.
If you predicted 2-0 to Manchester United, you get 5 points.
If you predicted 4-2 to Manchester United (margin correct), you get 3 points
If you predicted 3-2 to Manchester United (result correct, but not margin), you get 2 points
If you predicted 1-1 (result wrong), you get zero points
If you predicted any win to Chelsea (result wrong), you get zero points
IMPORTANT if a match goes to penalties then points will be allocated according to the score at the end of extra time Not the penalty score.
