World Cup Season can only mean one thing… The Football Predictor Game
The World Cup is almost upon us – starting on June 12th in Russia. Thirty-two teams will participate in the month long celebration of our nation’s favourite sport. Once again fingers, toes and eyes will be crossed in the hope that England will get past the group stages.
Eight groups of four teams each will start the beginning of the tournament and it will be the talking point in pubs, work places, and of course the ubiquitous social media. Everyone likes to predict the scores, their favourite players of the match and, of course, the eventual winners which will lift the coveted trophy.
In 2010, 46.4% of the world watched the World Cup and in 2014 a massive 1.01 billion people viewed the FIFA World Cup.
At A&P we’ve developed a World Cup predictor game that can be rolled out through work forces to add some excitement to the drama of the goals and glory.
The web based game helps bring work forces together and creates even greater excitement about this summer’s premier event.
The game has been developed to roll out through multiple locations, teams simply log on to their personalised game, players can view the games and predict the scores of each match. Each correct result and score wins points. Prizes can be set and each company can create their own league table and watch it change as the tournament progresses.
For more information on the World Cup predictor and how we can tailor it for your company or organisation, please email D.Daglish@apknowhow.com.
