Rules & Scoring
Users can predict on between 1 and 8 games per round. It is the solely the choice of the user on the strategy they wish to take. If a user chooses to predict on their favourite team they will be asked to additionally enter the minute of the 1st goal in this game only.
Predictions will close at the specified kick-off time for each individual match as displayed on footrace.com. Users can edit their prediction up to the scheduled kick-off time. Predictions will only be accepted through footrace.com.
Cup matches involving extra-time and penalties will be settled on 90 minute full-time results only. Any goals scored in extra-time or penalty shoot-outs do not count.
In the event of postponed/abandoned fixtures, the users round entry will remain valid, but the postponed/abandoned fixture will be null and void and therefore removed. If a user has only predicted on 1 game in a round and that is postponed/abandoned, the user will not have a valid entry into the round.
Fixture, score and minute of 1st goal data is provided by Goalserve.
Users will score points based on the accuracy of their predictions. Each fixture is allocated a points tariff based on the likelihood of the outcome (considering league position, form, injuries). Points tariffs are managed by Footrace.
Users score points by predicting either;
Exact score prediction - eg. predicting the exact correct score of the match.
Correct result prediction - eg. predicting the correct result, but not the exact score.
Incorrect result predictions score 0 points.
Users score bonus points by achieving either;
Perfect round of exact scores - eg. correct exact prediction scores in every game played on by the user in the round.
All correct results - eg. correct result predictions in every game played on by the user in the round. **All scores/results must be correct within the round to qualify.
A users points are calculated as follows;
Round - summation of all exact score and correct result points accumulated in the games that the user has played. If the user has qualified for bonus points they will be added as below;
A perfect round of exact scores - the user will receive 100% point bonus of their total score.
A perfect round of results, but an imperfect round of exact scores - the user will receive 100% bonus on the result points values of their selections to be added to their total.
Season - summation of the users round scores within the season
A users table position will be based on the points they have accrued in competition with other users. Users with level points will share table position.
If a user chooses to predict on their favourite team in a game round, this prediction will automatically be registered into an individual ‘My Team’ competition between the user and all fellow fans of the same club who have also predicted on their favourite team. Tables for this are viewed within the 'My Team' page on the site.
Users with level points in the ‘My Team’ individual game rounds will be separated using the minute of 1st goal decider as referenced in point 12.
