How do I earn points?

Predict match scores

For every group match in the WC 2020 you have to predict the final score. With every match you can earn 14 points. You will receive 6 points if you predict the correct winner of the match (MW), 4 points for the correct goal difference between the home and the away team (GD), 2 points for the correct amount of goals scored by the home team (GH) and 2 points for the correct amount of goals scored by the away team (GA).

Bonus points group matches

During the group stage it is possible to earn bonus points (BP) when you predict a result of a match that has been predicted by less then 50% of the participants. In case you predict the correct winner of the match (or a draw) that has been predicted by 50% or less than 50% of the participants, but by more than 30% of the participants, you will earn 2 bonus points. If you predict the correct winner of the match (or a draw) that has been predicted by 30% or less than 30% of the participants, but by more than 10% of the participants, you will earn 4 bonus points. And if you predict the correct winner of the match (or a draw) that has been predicted by 10% or less of the participants you will receive 8 bonus points. So to summarize, for a completely correct match score, from which the result has been predicted by 10% or less of the participants, you can earn a maximal amount of 22 points in the group stage.
