    Prize for winning: nothing, it's the internet.
    If you want to play, here are the rules.
    We will start with predicting results from the Playoff Round (last qualifying round) on to the final.
    Points system:
    Predicting winner of Playoff Round series: 1 point each
    Predicting correct result (not necessarily correct score line) of individual group stage matches: 1 point each
    Predicting who advances to Round of 16: 2 points each (2 bonus points for correct 1-2 combo in order)
    Predicting who advances to QF, SF, F, winner: 3 points each

    Total possible points and perfect score: 199

    If you want to play, post who you think will win the 10 Playoff Round match-ups by August 15 (day before Playoff Round starts). The draw for the Playoff Round will be Friday.

    I've decided we won't be predicting individual matches in the group stage, just who finishes 1-2 in each group as it's too much work to keep track of. So the max points is 103 now.
