I Know The Score: 2022 World Cup Edition

Tell us how you think the World Cup games will go and we will see who really Knows The Score.


Do you know how the 2022 FIFA World Cup is going to play out? Well, here’s your chance to show us! For the tournament this year, we’ve got a prediction game for you called I Know The Score (IKTS). The good folks over at The Short Fuse have been playing this game with the Premier League for years now, and we figured the World Cup would be a fun opportunity to bring it here to SSFC.

The rules are simple. Ahead of each round of fixtures, we’ll post the upcoming matches. All you’ve got to do is post a comment with a predicted scoreline for each game. You get points for each correct result. 1 point for picking the winning team, 2 points for getting the margin of victory right (or correctly calling a draw), or a max of 3 points if you get the exact scoreline right. At the end, we’ll tally up everyone’s points and announce a winner, with exact predictions serving as the tie-breaker.

With that, here’s the schedule for the first round of the group stage. At the bottom, there’s also a simplified format to make copy/pasting easier.
