Summary: It’s really simple! This game works well in a large work place or sports club. All you do is ask a number of people to pick a Premiership team to win each week. If the person picks a winning team, they stay in the competition and if their team loses or draws they are gone. You cannot pick the same team twice i.e if you pick Liverpool in week 1, you cannot pick them again until the next competition starts.
This idea can also be adapted to suit several different sports.
(The trick is to pick some of the less fancied teams early on and keep the big guns in reserve for the weeks you need them).
The winner is the last person standing. If there are a number of people left and nobody picks a winning team that week, the prize is shared.
You can charge as much you like for entry, but €10 per person seems to work well.
What happens now?
- Each person pays €10 in advance of the start date.
- Every Monday a list of fixtures to choose from is circulated. This can easily be found on the internet and emailed to those taking part or pinned on a notice-board.
- Each person’s choice of team must be returned by Thursday afternoon. If for any reason your choice is not returned you are eliminated.
- The following Monday the list of remaining participants is circulated, together with the fixture list for the following weekend
It usually takes about 4/5 weeks, is good fun and costs each person just €10.
The prize money is half the pot and goes to the last entrant left.
So if you get 100 participants the prize will be €500 and your profit will also be €500. You could also raise the entry fee or reduce the prize fund in order to make more money.
