You will be automatically entered into the 1st round group stage and drawn into a group of 7 or 8, where your weekly score will go against the other members in your group. The group stage will run for 7 consecutive weeks from week 7. The top 4 in each group are guaranteed a place in round 2, along with the next 6 highest scorers from across all groups. If there is a tie in the group stage, the person with the highest single score will go through, if this is the same then we will have a one week play off to determine who advances to the next round.
In the 2nd round knockout stage there will be a draw to determine who you play in a head-to-head format. In the event of a tied score, then it will firstly go to whoever predicted the most amount of correct scores, if this is still tied then it will come down to the dreaded goals predicted rule, the person who predicted the closest amount of goals in the selected matches. Finally if there is still a draw then the tie will be replayed in the following game week.
The Bezza Shield does not require extra predictions! The Shield will take the points you receive from your normal league predictions.
