      [58] Red News World Cup competition : Anyone can enter and its FREE to do so. For details of what it is and how to take part, read on ...

      Red News has a World Cup Predictions Competition to entertain you now that “unusual" past season has expired.

      Its free to enter and anybody can take part. Points updates will be regularly posted … so you know how each prediction turned out and how you are getting on compared to others taking part, plus we’ll have some stats to analyse how each of you are getting on (the good and the bad!) … that kind of thing anyway.

      You can submit predictions via the Red News site (www.rednews.co.uk), Facebook (www.facebook.com/rednewsfanzine) and Google+ (Red News Fanzine). And we’ll also provides the points updates in those places too - So its easy for you to take part, keep up to date with how you are getting on and discuss/debate why your 4-0 prediction turned out to be a 0-3 loss

      (and the highest finishing Red News VIP member will get a £50 cash prize, courtesy of the Red News editor - Barney, who does like to show the love to those who enjoy spending their time in the Red News forums and help make Red News what it is today)

      How to take part :

      Anyone can take part, you just need to do 3 things

      1

      Pick which teams will qualify from each group
      Points : 5 for each correct pick
      Submit before first game of the World Cup

      2

      Give us your guess for these 5 predictions
      World Cup winning team, Golden boot winner, Number of penalty shoot-outs, Team to score fewest goals in the group stage, at what stage will England get knocked out
      Points : 25 for each one you get right (a nice reward if you get one of these tougher picks correct)
      Submit before first game of the World Cup

      3

      Predict the final score in each of the world cup games - all group and knock-out games
      Including extra time, but not pens

      Points : 7 points for exact score, 3 points for correct result

      Submit anytime up to 12pm on the day of the game


      That’s it … Its free to enter and anybody can take part (and if you are a Red News VIP member there’s the added bonus of a £50 cash prize to the highest placed one of you)

      cheers and we hope you’ll join us

            Does it mean that 1&2 we must predict before the tournament start, but 3. we can predict the matches along the way?

                        if past seasons are anything to go by, then predicting the exact score is a hard thing to do (hence the bigger reward) ... its a bit like the cream and jam on a strawberry scone ... getting the match result correct gives you the substance to your points score ... in this case, the scone itself

                            just to be clear, there are no actual strawberry scones involved in this competition ... not in any of the points scoring, nor in the prizes ... just in case there was any confusion. cheers
