    Kicks off a month today. I'll run a comp where all you have to do before it kicks off is plan your route to the final.

    I have just done this on here : https://ultra.zone/2018-FIFA-World-Cup-Group-Stage

    All you have to do is predict the scores of the group games it will then give you your final standings for each group and plan your second round games. If you then predict the winner of these games you can plan out your quarter finals etc.

    However if you don't to do that then just predict the results of the group games below and I will do the rest for you.

    The scoring for this comp will be

    3 points if you correctly predict the score of any group game and 1 point if you get the correct outcome ( home, away, draw) but the wrong scoreline.

    After this you will be able to see how you think each group will finish and 2 points will be awarded for each team that you have correctly predicted there final position in the group.

    For the last 16 games you will get 3 points for each team you correctly predict to go out at this stage

    For the quarter finals you will get 5 points for each team you correctly predict to go out at this stage

    10 points for each losing semi finalist you have correctly predicted.

    20 points if you predict the losing finalist

    30 Points if you correctly predict the winner.

    Prizes will be

    1st 3,000,000,000
    2nd 1,500,000,000
    3rd 600,000,000
