    Point System

    Points are awarded as follows
    • Correct Result – 2 Points
    • Correct Score - 3 Points
    • Correct Scorer – 1 Point
    Bonus Points. 3 bonus points will be awarded to anyone who makes a perfect prediction. A perfect prediction is the correct result, score and all City Scorers correctly predicted

    Penalty Points. If you predict City scoring more than 5 or more goals you will get a penalty of -1 for each incorrect scorer. This is to prevent abuse by naming all 11 starters as scorers for guaranteed points.

    • All Cup match predictions are on the result in normal time
    • If a match goes into extra time you will receive half the points you would get for a correct goalscorer in normal time
    • Penalty Shootouts gain you no point
    • League Cup matches are now part of the prediction league. Like the FA Cup all points are half those of League Matches
    • EFL Cup matches are also now part of the prediction league. These carry a quarter of the points of a league match
    • You can contribute to a community prize. See Prize section for details

    Prizes

    All entrants will receive a banner at the end of the season

    1 x Football Shirt Mystery Box provided by Surprise Shirts (More Info Here)

    1st Place at the end of the season will get to choose their prize from the list above, 2nd will get to choose from what's left and so on until all prizes have been awarded

    Keep an eye out on the thread for updates and new prizes as they are added

    Want to contribute a prize? Any help with prizes would be greatly appreciated. This can be done either as official business sponsorship, a private sponsorship or on an anonymous basis. If you provide a prize as a business we will include your name and branding in all Prediction League threads and promotions via social media

    Based on feedback from some players I am also going to try doing a community prize.

    To contribute to the community prize head to my Buy Me A Coffee page (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/wakey) and make a donation. You don't need to leave your name but in the 'Say Something Nice' field just put #PredictionLeague. All money gained (minus card fees) will be used to add a community-contributed prize to the prize pool. Around about March/April, I will see how much has been made and put up a vote visible to anyone who has donated to pick what this prize will be.

    You can donate £1, £3 or £5 or a custom amount. Personally, I would suggest at least £2 just because £1 sees over half of it gets eaten up by fees (The payment processors have a base fee of 42p + a further percentage)


    Know a company who might like to provide a prize? Point them to this thread especially if its a company that provide a product or service that is City related or is likely to be appealing to the City Worldwide fanbase

    Special Rounds

    Special Prize Rounds

    Certain rounds will be defined as Special Prize rounds. There will be prizes available to the top scorer(s) of this round. How many and when these rounds is at the discretion of the competition organisers

    FA Cup & League Cup

    FA Cup matches will be included this year but will only score half points. We will be using the rule introduced for the Euros where you are predicting the score and result as of 90mins. However, any correct goalscorer who score in extra time will see you receive half the points you would have got for a goal in normal time (0.25points). You will not score points for scoring in a penalty shootout

    EFL Cup

    To give you all a reason to actually care about the EFL games these will also be included this year. They will carry just 25% of a league games score. You never know though, it might just make the difference at the end of the season.

    As with FA and League cup Games your predictions are on the score in normal time. You will receive no points score scorers in a penalty shootout. If City reaches a round that has Extra time you will receive half the points for a extra time goalscorer as you would in normal time (so 0.125 points)

    Been having much more trouble getting sponsors on board this time. Covid I'm guessing hasn't helped.

    So I'm considering adding a Sorare 'Starter' pack as a prize. Basically what I will do is I will write a script that will pick one limited card from my holdings from each position. So that's 1 Keeper, 1 Defender, 1 Midfielder and 1 attacker. It will then pick the 5th card from all the positions combined. This allows you to pick a team in the All-Star Division 5 league each round (or you may get lucky and they are all from a specific region so you can enter the region-specific Div 5 where its easier to score enough points to win new cards)

    This will be totally random so you could get cards that are youngsters who aren't currently first-team regulars so worth maybe £5-10 each to high scoring first-teamers worth hundreds or even thousands of pounds. You can then either play the game with those cards, look to sell and buy other cards that are a better fit for you. hold onto them and sell when they increase in value or just cash out right away.

    If you aren't already playing Sorare follow this link (http:///sorare.com/r/simonwakefield) to signup for FREE. You will get some FREE common cards that can be used for a limited period to play in the starter leagues to get to understand the game. You can also use ONE of these cards each week in each of the Division 4 leagues but you will need 4 rare cards to go along with them. And if you choose to buy some cards in the auctions when you buy 5 both of us will get a FREE limited card.


    And Obviously which card you may win will change by the end of the season as I will have sold some, bought new ones and won new ones (and if enough of you signup and buy some cards in the auction, and here is a tip to get us both the free card. Late at night go check the auction page out and you will find a bunch you can get for under £3 each as there are fewer people bidding. Either get ones that have played a decent number so will be useful right now or who are under 23, especially 18 or younger who are likely to get game time in future seasons so are likely to increase in value when they break through and not only will you get a card that might very well be worth much more than you paid for the 5 cards combined but so do I so that's an extra card you might win) BUT here is my current limited cards

    Will there be an updated table before the final few games of the season?
