We have officially entered the World Cup season, and the globe’s very best in soccer talent are now gunning for one of the greatest prizes in sports. Now, Cupheads already know that some of the strongest teams in the history of World Cup—Italy, the Netherlands, Ghana, Chile, and the United States—all fail to qualify this year. But that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to be excited. Everyone’s favourite teams—Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, and France—are still on the field.
Who are you rooting for? Get ready for some healthy competition in our first-ever FIFA World Cup prediction contest. The top ten players who correctly predict the winning teams each round will be placed into a lucky draw to win one of three Sturmanskie watches, in the spirit of 2018 FIFA World Cup held in Russia.
For the uninitiated, Russian watchmaker Sturmanskie was born in 1949 during Soviet time and its watches were worn exclusively by air force pilots. The Gagarin Vintage timepiece takes its name after Yuri Gagarin, the first human to travel into space on April 12, 1961—with a Sturmanskie wristwatch, no less. The mechanical watch, priced at $790, has a 42-hour power reserve, a 40mm titanium case, luminescent indices, a dark-brown leather belt with steel buckle, and a back cover etched with a portrait of Yuri Gagarin.
Here’s what you have to do for a chance to win the Sturmanskie:
- Go to our FIFA World Cup page or click on “FIFA” on the site’s navigation menu
- Pick the teams you think will win, or select “Draw” if you predict a tie
- Submit your details to enter the contest
Predictions must be entered each day before 6pm Singapore time.
Remember to go back to the page daily to pick your winning teams using the same username and email. The top 10 contestants at the end of the competition will be entered into a lucky draw. If you’re only just starting the game, fret not—you can still catch up! Players get 5 points per correct prediction for quarter-finals; 8 points for semi-finals and 10 points for finals.
Winners will be contacted via email. GLHF!
