Our Summer With Des - The Euro 2008 Prediction League

OUR SUMMER WITH DES : THE EURO 2008 PREDICTION LEAGUE

Yes, yes I know there’s not much point in watching since the home nations are sitting this one out. But it’s still football and what else are you going to do in June ? Go antiquing with the missus ? Off to the arboretum ? Yeah I can really see you doing that…

This summer’s prediction league will just be for fun. It is FREE to play and you might win some prizes.

Talking of which…

-> THE PRIZES:
As mentioned the prediction league is free to play and you could win some prizes – from DVD’s, CD’s and some technobobbins computer related stuff.
– If you have anything you’d like to donate as a prize then send me a message via the contact form.

-> Sponsorship:
Do you work for a company that has something to promote ? We’ll shill for you.
Footie and Music is happy to be sponsored by… you, if you can offer whatever you are pushing as a prize.
Please contact me here.

-> THE PREDICTIONS:
For the group stages (June 7th-18th) all the fixtures have already been entered so you can enter in your predictions now.
I have separated them into each day and you can view all the upcoming matches by clicking on “My Missing Predictions”.

– How to enter your predictions:
(When you are signed in) Click on “My Predictions”.
You will then see a list of all the matches.
Enter in what you think the result will be and click on the “Predict” button.
If you’ve selected the option in your profile you will receive an email confirming your predicts.

*PLEASE NOTE*
The Game Time is set British Summer Time which is 1 hour behind CET & 5 hours behind EST in the USA.
You can do your prediction right up until kick off of each match.


-> THE POINTS/WHAT’S THE SCORING ? HOW DOES THAT WORK ?

You earn points by predicting the outcome correctly – either by getting the right score or the right result.

– If you predict a correct result – ie: You enter 2-1 and the result is 1-nil, you will get 3 points.
– If you predict a correct score – ie: You enter 3-0 and the result is 3-0 you get 8 points (3 for a correct result, 5 a for correct score).

-> THE LEAGUE/HOW DOES THAT WORK ?
Works the same as a footie league. Predict more games correctly and get more wins > more points for you.

-> WHAT IF I DON’T DO MY PREDICTIONS or FORGET TO DO MY PREDICTIONS ?
It is up to you to make sure you enter in a prediction for every game. Don’t worry too much if you miss a couple. It does happen. (We will not enter in extra matches so you can catch up, if you miss predicting a match/couple of matches or a week it is tough titties.)

-> WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO PLAY ANY MORE ?
If you want to take your Mitre Delta Ultra and go home then that’s your choice. You can delete yourself from the league by clicking on your profile and entering in your password and pressing the button at the bottom.

*Extra Bits*
Once you’ve signed up you should automatically be a member of the Prediction League. Keep an eye on the left hand menu for a message, if it tells you that you are not a member of the league – click on “My Profile”, look for the “Joined Leagues” section and check to see if there is a tick in the box. If not check it and click “Join League”.

-> Icons:
I have already upload some icons for you to use. These icons can be seen by other players (when you are logged in).
Click on the current icon below your username. Choose any of the images there.

– If you want to use your own icon then send an image to me via the contact form.
