A Unique Soccer World Cup Fantasy Betting League

With the 2010 Soccer World Cup countdown under way, I thought I would take the opportunity to spell out a more special dream league that I participate in. I’ll be fair, I am not really a particularly avid soccer fan; I appreciate the art and finesse of the players, but it’s the boring develop play along with “diving” I find turns me off the sport. However, having an enthusiastic sports bettor, and also the worldcup being clearly one of the biggest sporting events (as well as betting events) on the sporting calendar, I still do follow the world cup games results. The world cup fantasy league I participate in is a special league that does require a little manual work to organise and collate results. But if run successfully, it guarantees prolonged interest during the entire world cup most of the way to the ultimate match.

The Fundamentals of world cup Bet on World Cup fantasy league are as follows:
Inch. Every participant submits the buy-in amount which becomes the pool of the winnings.
2. Each player is subsequently allocated 100 units which they may bid on players in a silent auction.
3. Each player then chooses 3 strikers and 1 team by writing on a sheet of newspaper the player titles and also the most number of units that the player (team owner) wants to spend money on the player.
4. The league organiser then collates each the bits of paper and also determines the fantasy teams by alerting players to teams based on their own owners bidding components.

The scoring system is simple in that every team scores 1 point for every goal scored with a striker in their team, and loses 1 point to every goal enabled by their own team. The difficulty is in selecting strikers and teams that will keep in to the last games of this championship, and also in deciding how much to bid for each player. At the end of the tournament the team with the highest score receives the pool of winnings.
