Sunday, March 1, 2020 - You wait ages to see your first monthly winner of the season and then two come along together. Well done to Caroline Carroll and Joseph Kavanagh who top the table in our first monthly competition of the season. Full details on the February page....

Monday, February 24, 2020 - I've added a new page to the website showing who has recorded the most ten pointers i.e. got their predictions exactly correct. No cash prize for topping this table but it might be worth some bragging rights! Full details here....

Friday, February 14, 2020 - So we've ended up with 48 people taking part - a very good number for our first season.

I'm suggesting a prize fund as follows once the last few entrance fees are collected:

Overall First Place - €200
Overall Second Place - €100
Overall Third Place - €50

League Cup Winner - €50
FAI Cup Winner - €50

Monthly Winner - as a novel twist the monthly winner will get two tickets for a League of Ireland game of their choice - that's subject to me being able to source tickets for the game of course!!!

    How Does It All Work Then?
Points are earned from predicting the scorelines in each match in the 2020 SSE Airtricity Premier League season - for each game in the league you'll get either zero, five or ten points depending how close you are to getting the scoreline exactly right.

You can also pay your entrance fee now too if you like. The charge for 2020 will be €10.50 with all entrance fees collected less transaction charges going into the prize fund:
