How Does It All Work Then?
Points are earned from predicting the scorelines in each match in the 2024 SSE Airtricity Premier and First Divisions - for each game you'll get either zero, five or ten points depending how close you are to getting the scoreline exactly right.

Full details on the scoring system can be found on the fixtures page and the entry form page...

This year's entrance fee will be a tenner and can be paid via Revolut at 087-6879269.

All the tenners collected will go into the prize fund for the season. Prizes are on offer for monthly winners, cup competition winners and the overall leading positions at the end of the season.

A scores update is available on the site after every round of games along with a weekly email update. The weekly email update also contains a spreadsheet with your match by match scores. A fixtures reminder email is also sent out on a Wednesday night before each round of games.
