I will be running a Fantasy league that covers every game of the World Cup. The points system is simple and complicated at the same time but can make sense. The scoring system is below.

FIFA Rankings for Each Team in Competition to make it easier (Or harder as FIFA rankings are often silly) for newcomers to the sport.

Hopefully I will see you all here from the 12th of June till the 13th of July.

I remember that this was so much fun for Euro 2012. Thanks Matty for doing it for the WC as well! :cheers:

Anyway, I've already submitted my pick.

I might change the points in regards to possession down to 1 point per %.

If needed I can set up a group PM with all participates and remind you to pick every day.

Also, I'm thinking of dropping possession from 2 points to 1 point per % as I think it just makes the team most in possession run away with the points.

Thoughts?

Do I need to be approved to take part or can I just get involved?

Great idea Matty. 👍

Nope, just click on 'Brazil v Croatia' enter what's asked on the next page and your entered for the first match.

Submitted, but I have a question about Possession. Is it scored for overall possession, for example, in a 52-48 time of possession, the points scored would be 104 for Brazil since they possessed the ball for 52% of the time, or is it scored on a possession differential, using the same example, the people who picked Brazil would score 8 points because of a 4% differential whereas the people who picked Croatia would score nothing.

It's using total possession and I'm considering taking it down to 1 point.

Although I like what you said meaning point differential. I may change it to that and keep it at 2 points. That way it's fairer to the dominant team, whether they win or lose.

Even though my football knowledge is pretty crap, I'm gonna give this a go. See how well I can do by guessing everything. :D

Switzerland you idiot! :P
I could have also said Costa Rica. Oh and good shout for Faroe Islands but I can also guarantee that San Marino won't concede a goal either. :P

I'll go out on a limb and say Tahiti will still manage to lose a game at the World Cup 10-0 despite not being at the World Cup.

To be fair, the World Cup has a totally different atmosphere to week to week club football. I can see the appeal to a more casual fan.

In other news there is a sweepstake at work. I got Equador.......
