Take the FIFA World Cup Bracket Challenge

  • ​Our Predictor game will make every Russia 2018 game even more exciting

  • Create mini-leagues and compete against your friends

  • The prizes include a Madrid holiday and VIP treatment at an Atleti game

Russia 2018 will be abundantly exciting, but we’ve got a little something to give each of its 64 matches additional appeal for you and your friends: the FIFA World Cup™ Bracket Challenge by Wanda.

It’s free. It’s fun. And it’s quick to enter. PLAY NOW

For each of the eight groups, simply pick the order in which the four teams will finish (i.e. Russia to finish 1st, Saudi Arabia 2nd, Egypt 3rd and Uruguay 4th in Group A). Then pick which teams will win the knockout-phase ties.

So if, for example, you predict France to come first and Denmark to come second in Group C, and Croatia to come first and Argentina to come second in Group D, you’ll then be asked to predict hypothetical France-Argentina and Croatia-Denmark Round-of-16 ties, and so on. It’s that easy – there’s no predicting scorelines!

You’ll score points for your predictions and you’ll be competing for these great prizes:

First prize A trip for two to Madrid to enjoy VIP treatment at an Atletico Madrid game. It includes: - Two economy class flights from anywhere in the world to Madrid - a three-night hotel stay in Madrid - A VIP experience for two people at the Wanda Metropolitano, which includes watching a La Liga match and a personal meet-and-greet with some of Atletico players!

Runners-up prizes 2nd place: an adidas Krasava signed by Cristiano Ronaldo 3rd place: A Brazil jersey signed by Marcelo, including his name and number on the back 4th place: A photo signed by South Africa 2010 winner Sergio Ramos 5th place: A photo signed by Brazil 2014 winner Toni Kroos

Deadlines The deadline is 17:00 CET on 14 June 2018 – one day before the World Cup kicks off.

If you miss that deadline, however, you can still participate in the ‘My Knockout Bracket’, which opens at 21:00 CET on 28 June – just after the last group-stage matches end – and closes at 15:00 CET on 30 June.

Challenge your friends Who doesn’t love battling for bragging rights with your buddies? Well, you can set up a mini-league and do just that.

So, what are you waiting for? Get predicting!
