Sunday, July 19, 2020 - As a result of the reduced fixture list and restrictions on attendance I've rejigged the prize fund quicker than an FAI committee reshuffle as follows:

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

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

The monthly prizes will revert to a cash equivalent replacing the match tickets - there'll be five monthly winners winning €25..... Three people share the March prize as a result of that month's competition being cut short. July will only see two games taking place - those two games will be added into the August fixtures for a combined monthly (plus one day) competition!

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....

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:
