    Got this idea from a forum back in 2014. The basic objective of this game is simple: Pick a team to WIN their game in each round of the World Cup.

    The game is split into 7 rounds, 3 in the group stages and 4 in the knockout stages. If your team wins the game, you remain in the competition. If they lose or draw, you are eliminated.

    In knockout stages, extra time and penalty shootouts count. The 3rd place play-off match does not count.

    Once you have picked a team, you are unable to choose that team again for the rest of the tournament. I'll be keeping tabs on this using a spreadsheet.

    Winner is the last player remaining (tie-breaker to be decided if more than 1 player remains).

    Additional rules:
    • If you miss a round, you are out.
    • Selections are to be made and finalised before the first kick-off for that round. If you don't think you can make it before that day, you are able to post your pick in advance.
    • If you have no teams left to pick, you are also out. Tip: Save the "big teams" until the knockout stages

    If you are interested in playing, post your first pick below! I'm in the process of arranging a kind of prize, if possible.

    First match starts on Thursday 14th June @ 4PM so get your picks in! Deadline is at 3:59PM on that day.

    Tagging in people from the PL season thread and some football regulars. Feel free to tag your football mates in this too, the more people we have the better!

    Yeah, I didn't want to complicate things too much by splitting the group stages into 6 rounds.
