    Bantam Talk Prediction League 19/20

    After last season's success, we are back for Citys League Two campaign. Hopefully, City will have a more productive season which should lead to an even more competitive competition.

    Entry is open to all registered Forum Members and is free to play. Every League match we will ask for your match predictions and you will be awarded points based on the accuracy. These scores accumulate over the season and whoever has accrued the most points at the end of the season will be crowned champion.

    Full details can be found in the following replies. Use the navigation links below to quickly jump to the specific post
    Anyway good luck and if you have any questions please let us know below

    How To Play

    A couple of days before every league match a prediction thread will be posted. This thread will be stickied to the top of the forum to help you find it. On this thread, you just need to post your match prediction on the following format
    For example

    Point System

    Points are awarded as follows
    • Correct Result – 2 Points
    • Correct Score - 3 Points
    • Correct Scorer – 1 Point
    Bonus Points. The best prediction will get 5 bonus points. If multiple people predicted the same score and scorers then the minute of the first goal (or yellow in a scoreless draw) will be used as a tiebreak. Anyone who losses on this tiebreak will get 3 bonus points.

    If even with the tiebreak entries are still identical the first person to post will get the full bonus points

    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.

    I've been doing a bit of networking and looks like I might have a really good addition to the prize pool. Think it will be something that every single one of you would really love if you win. Just a few final details to sort out before I can announce it so keep an eye out.

    And hopefully there will be a few more prizes coming after it as well

    Thanks to D. Griffin Art & Design we have a new item in the prize pool. He has provided the following art print commemorating happier times for City when they beat Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge in the 4th Round of 2014/15 F.A Cup. The print captures the celebration moments after Mark Yeates scores the 4th in Stoppage time.

    The person who wins this prize will be able to choose from either a Framed A4 print (white or black frame) or an unframed version in the size of your choice (between A1 and A5)


    s750555919905367897_p173_i138_w621.jpeg

    You can check out the rest of his work over on his site at https://www.dgriffin.net/ He mainly focuses on football prints but there is also a selection of pop culture prints as well. The football prints cover a number of teams both in England and abroad as well as National teams (I'm tempted by England Euro 96 Gazza and the dentist chair celebration one if I can just work out where to put it). And its not just action ones either, there are stadium prints (including panoramas), individual player cutouts and teams greatest player lineups

    And we have another prize to go into the pool. This time supplied by Bradford City A.F.C themselves. They are providing a Signed First Team Shirt. Big thanks to the club for doing this, its the kind of request professional sports organisations often decline but they stepped up to give something back to the fans

    And thanks to @Glenn Ackroyd for helping organise this.

    Maybe someone would like to match the premium subs I've committed to and get us closer to having a prize for everyone in the top 10 *hint* *hint* :)
