in #blocktradesworldcup5 years ago (edited)

No kidding: a 2,000 SBD prize pool and ANYONE who can make a post, can join in the fun!

In only 14 days the biggest sports event in the world will begin: The Football World Cup celebrated in Russia.


@blocktrades loves to sponsor this type of community engaging projects and @acidyo & @anomadsoul know a lot of Steemians love this game, so we decided to organize this enormous Football World Cup event.

You don´t have to be a professional analyst of the game, your national team doesn´t have to participate, you don´t need to know much about Football to join...

All you need to do is write a post picking every match winner and, the Steemian who makes the most points, wins.

As simple as that

Hey @acidyo, I want a piece of those 2,000 SBD, how do I join?

It´s very easy: In the world cup there are two stages, The Group Stage and The Knockout Stage.

For the Group Stage of this @blocktrades cup, all you have to do is make a post with your match predictions in each of these matches:

Russia v Saudi Arabia

Egypt v Uruguay

Morocco v Iran

Portugal v Spain

France v Australia

Argentina v Iceland

Peru v Denmark

Croatia v Nigeria

Germany v Mexico

Brazil v Switzerland

Sweden v South Korea

Belgium v Panama

Tunisia v England

Poland v Senegal

Colombia v Japan

Russia v Egypt

Portugal v Morocco

Uruguay v Saudi Arabia

Iran v Spain

France v Peru

Denmark v Australia

Argentina v Croatia

Brazil v Costa Rica

Nigeria v Iceland

Serbia v Switzerland

Belgium v Tunisia

Germany v Sweden

South Korea v Mexico

England v Panama

Japan v Senegal

Poland v Colombia

All you have to do is make a post where you put W (for win), L (for lose) and T (for tie) in each game.
