Combining a love of football with lived experience of gambling addiction, we’re super proud to present Footrace, a new and exciting football predictor game. We offer a safe space away from gambling for fans to enjoy predicting on football.
The website is a Beta version as we work towards a full launch for the 2022/23 season.
Football predicting is intrinsic to any fan. We love to have an opinion (and the bragging rights that follow should we get a prediction right!).
But, it’s fair to say this part of our game has been somewhat corrupted by the rise and saturation of the gambling industry. As a football fan we are encouraged at every opportunity to monetise our predictions and join the surge movement toward ‘having a bet on the football’.
The relationship between gambling and football is broken. The industry has intertwined itself to football through shirt sponsorship and partnerships with almost all our clubs and associations, and advertising campaigns that fill up our TV sets, radio stations, social media feeds and newspapers. It has tapped into our intrinsic love to predict, and normalised gambling as the way to do this. At best this in unhealthy, but at worst it’s extremely dangerous.
In a digital age where pretty much everything is gamified, we aim to provide a safe space away from gambling for fans to enjoy football predicting.
We offer something that is safe, fun, and engaging to fans of all teams.
Footrace has a risk and reward game format that allows you to be creative with your strategy. Absolutely no rigid points tariffs - you will be rewarded for crazy predictions! We run two competition rounds per week. It doesn't matter if you forget to play one week, simply login and join in with the next round. Within the competition rounds, you can choose to predict on your team, competing with your fellow fans. We cover all professional leagues in the UK, major European leagues, European elite football and international football.
