Accessing the Website
- Use the Login ID and Password you've entered to log in.
- Make the necessary changes in your profile...
- PLEASE NOTE: The tie braking question can only be entered prior to the tournament start
 
The Scoring System
- Note: All scores can be updated right up to the official game time
- Basically, you have to predict scores. The point total is the sum of all points based on:
- Correct Outcome = 2 pts
- Perfect Score = [Correct Outcome] + [2 bonus points]

- For example take a game between Germany and. Austria. If your prediction is Germany - Austria   2-1, and Germany wins, you get 1 point, if the official score matches your prediction, you get 2 extra bonus points.

- What about ties? Same applies. If you predict a tie and the match ends in a tie, you get 1 point for the correct outcome. In case of perfect score, you get 2 extra bonus points...

- What about the knockout round? Same applies, except the points are doubled and score is compared to whatever it was prior to the penalty shootout. The game therefore can last 120 minutes (including the extra time)!

- The penalties are scored separately using the same system:
- Correct PK Outcome = 1 pt
- Perfect PK Score = [Correct PK Outcome] + [2 bonus points]
- These apply regardless of the game's outcome (can be considered a game on its own)

As an example, if Germany and Spain meet in the Quarterfinals, you have the following options:
- Pick Germany to win 3-2 in the game but pick Spain on Penalties 5-4 as a backup plan.
- If Germany wins in either regulation or extra time, you get 2 points. If they manage to win 3-2 you get 4 bonus points for a total of 6 points...
- If Germany wins on penalties (the game would end in a draw, of course), you get 2 points. If the actual penalty score is 5-4, you get 2 bonus points
- If you're brave enough, you can predict a draw, say 2-2, and Germany to win on penalties 4-2. If all this comes through, you get 10 points in total. GOOD LUCK with that :)

- What about Bonus Teams? Pick two teams you think will get to the final. Hence:
- 10 points / repersentative in the final
- 5 points for the eventual winner.

Tie Breakers
  1. TOTAL number of goals you scored in the tournament. Goals scored during the penalty shoutouts don't count towards the total
  2. Number of perfect scores from regulation time
  3. Flip a coin :)
