Scoring system
The Predict the World Cup scoring system works as follows:
  • 3 points for predicting an exact score
  • 1 point for predicting the correct result (ie. you correctly predict the winner, or you correctly predict a draw, but by the wrong number of goals).
  • 2 point bonus for predicting the correct result if that result was predicted by less than 20% of your competitors.
  • 2 point bonus for predicting the exact score if that score was predicted by less than 5% of your competitors.
The following examples show the points you would score in a theoretical game between Brazil and Korea DPR. The bonuses would depend on how other people in the league predicted - but the majority would normally predict a Brazil win. Notice how the number of bonus points you score rises if you correctly predict unlikely scorelines.

Brazil 5 Korea DPR 0
Brazil 1 Korea DPR 3
If two people are level on points their position in the table will be determined by goal difference
  • For each incorrect number of goals you predict per team, you lose the difference in goals. e.g. you predict 3 and the team scores 2, you get -1 goals.
  • For each correct teams number of goals you score, you receive a positive goal difference based on the following scale:
§        You predict 0 or 1 goals and the team scores 0 or 1, you receive +1 goal difference.
§        You predict 2 goals or more and the team scores that number, you receive double the number of goals predicted, ie. you predict 3 and the team scores 3, you get +6 goal difference.
Please Note: In the event of a penalty shoot out in the later rounds, the final score will be considered to be the score at the end of extra-time. So it is possible that games after the group stage can end in a draw for the purposes of this game.

Enter your predictions for the eventual winner of the tournament, the total number of goals to be scored, the total number of red and yellow cards on the my predictions page before the first game in the tournament has kicked off.
