    2022 SBR World Cup Challenge ($3,000 in cash prizes)

    Welcome to the 2022 SBR World Cup Challenge. Soccer’s biggest tournament kicks off November 20th and we’ve got $3,000 in cash prizes up for grabs exclusive to SBR Pros. We will be using the platform at runyourpool like we did for the March Madness contest.


    Prize-Pool


    Group Stage Winner - $500

    Knockout Stage Winner - $500

    Overall (Both Stages Combined)

    1st - $1,000

    2nd - $500

    3rd - $250

    4th - $150

    5th - $100

    *Cash prizes paid out via PayPal.


    Contest Rules:


    This pool includes both the group stage and the knockout stage, meaning you will need to fill out two pick sheets on the Runyourpool contest site.

    The group stage pick sheet will involve ranking how the 32 teams will finish in each group and must be completed by November 20.

    Example below:



    Once these games have been completed the knockout stage pick sheet will be available, where you will fill out a bracket for the remaining 16 teams – due by December 3rd. Your overall score will be determined by the points received in both stages.


    Contest Scoring:


    Group Stage


    Members will receive the following points for each correct group finishing position:

    First: 1 pt.

    Second: 1 pt.

    Third: 1 pt.

    Fourth: 1 pt.

    Member with the most points after the Group Stage will be awarded $500.

    1st Tie Breaker will be most correct group winners

    2nd Tie Breaker will be most correct teams to advance (top 2 finishers correct)

    If still tied, winners will split the cash prize.


    Knockout Stage


    Members will receive the following points for each correct pick in the knockout stage:

    Round of 16: 1 pt.

    Quarter Final: 2 pts.

    Semi Final: 4 pts.

    Final: 8 pts.

    Leaderboard will be ordered by total points won. Tiebreaker for both Overall and the Knockout Stage will be total number of goals in all 15 games of the knockout round, excluding shootout goals.

    2nd Tie breaker will be number of correct teams in the final 4.

    If still tied, winners will split the cash prize.


    How To Enter:


    1. Go to the Runyourpool Contest Site

    2. Register if you do not have an existing RYP account or sign in if you do. Make sure your display name is the same as your SBR username.

    3. Join the pool at this link: https://www.runyourpool.com/p/j/1e76...3f44de87dcabf4

    Group Stage picks must be submitted by 11:00 AM ET on November 20th, 2022.

    Knockout Stage picks must be submitted by 8:00 AM ET on December 3rd, 2022.


    Fine Print:


    1. Contest Open to SBR Pros only. Must an SBR Pro by Group Stage deadline of 11:00 AM ET November 20th.

    2. All Cash prizes paid via PayPal. Winners will be contacted via PM for PayPal details. Must respond within 30 days in order to receive prize.

    3. Multiple entries per household are prohibited. SBR reserves the right to disqualify members who attempt to gain more than one entry in the contest.

    From the PayPal Terms of Service regarding gamlbing (located here: https://www.paypal.com/us/cshelp/article/HELP391):

    PayPal allows approved gambling merchants to use our service in certain jurisdictions where gambling activities are legal. To be approved by PayPal, merchants must demonstrate to PayPal's satisfaction that they can block gambling activities for account holders in the U.S. and any jurisdiction where gambling activities may be illegal.

    Unless we’ve approved the merchant, account holders may not use PayPal to send or receive payments for any form of gambling activities, including but not limited to: payments for wagers, gambling debts, and gambling winnings, whether conducted online, in person, or through any other means of communication. Gambling includes placing, accepting, recording, or registering bets; participating in lotteries; or otherwise carrying on a game of chance for money, property, or other things of value.


    Is SBR an approved gambling merchant? Otherwise sounds like a good way to get a paypal account banned (not that I have one...)

    I am not sure. Looked all over and can't see it mentioned in rules or on the game page.

    Have you submitted and cant work out how to edit? or just asking?

    I'd guess that there will be an edit button up until entries close.

    If you go to your entry, click on the 3 dot menu on the right side and select 'Edit Group' - you can adjust your picks up until the first game on November 20th. https://www.runyourpool.com/soccer/G...le_entries.cfm

    Tanko was already used on Runyourpool so I had to add a 1 to my display name. --> Tanko1
    I've used Tanko1 in prior SBR contests on Runyourpool, so I'm hoping its not a problem.

    Is this OK for the contest?

    Yes that is fine. If your exact username is not available, please make it as close as possible and be sure to use the same email as your SBR account.

    In. If your having trouble deciding on picking teams like me who doesn’t know anything about who is better than who in soccer go to a site like Betonline and take a look at the group stage odds under World Cup odds and you will get a better idea of how each group will play out.
