2018 FIFA World Cup Predictor

Predict the scores and major events in this summer's 2018 FIFA World Cup to win cash prizes for yourself and a charity of your choice. Earn points based on the accuracy of your score predictions for each group game and your other predictions such as the overall winner and the Golden Boot. Cost of entry is £5* with 40% going to the prize fund and 60% going to charities (so every 100 entries means another £300 for charities and £200 for players). There will be £30 awarded to the highest score for section A and £20 for section B. The remaining prize fund will be split (50%/25%/15%/10%) between the top 4 entries with the highest combined score (A + B).
