With the 2014 World Cup fast approaching, despite Scotland missing out in all the fun once again and to add to our own coverage of the competition, Scotzine is organising a football sweepstakes competition.
You may have had these in your place of work or among your mates, more often than not they are only around when the Grand National, European Championships or the World Cup is upon us.
There are 32 teams, so spread the word among your friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances online to take part.
If the cash prizes were not enough, Subside Sports are offering the winner of the Scotzine World Cup 2014 Football Sweepstakes a voucher to the tune of £63.74, which will cover the cost of a football shirt and delivery [UK entrants only].
How are the teams allocated? It wouldn’t be fair to have folk pay in their money and then select the team they want. So what we are planning on doing is accepting payment of the entry fee up until the 10th June – or until all 32 spots are taken. Then we will draw the teams out of a hat matching them up with each entrant on June 10th or when all places have been bought and paid for.
The top three placed winners will receive their cash prizes via paypal at the end of July.
So who will draw out reigning champions Spain? Who will draw the Germans? Who will draw hosts Brazil? Or will you end up lumbered with a team like England who talk plenty about winning the competition but end up falling flat on their face?
With the 32 teams not being filled – the prize money is reduced from £160 to £90 along with the Subside Sports voucher. That means the prizes for 1st to 3rd is now:
1st. £50 + Subside Sports voucher [worth £63.74 to cover replica shirt and delivery]
The teams were selected using a random number generator and each selection took place by date/time of purchase.
