An illustration of how the scoring works

Say you pick England. If they were to lose in the quarter finals you will be awarded 30 x 4.5 =135points.

Say you pick France. And say they are a losing semi-finalist, you will be awarded 2 x 50 = 100 points.

And if you pick Northern Ireland and they finish third in their group but do not qualify, you will be rewarded with 5 x 50 = 250 points.

In the event the forum is down on the closing day, selections may be left on our Facebook page, can I recommend you bookmark it just in case.

Entries close at kick off time of the opening match of the tournament which is 8pm Fri June 10[SUP]th[/SUP], 2016

Bon chance everyone

I'm in to defend my euro crown. :)

My selections are as follows:

England (gasps and pulls a face of distaste)
Don't think there are play-offs for the last 16, DG. The 4 best performing 3rd placed teams go forward. Does the 5 point award go to teams finishing 3rd in their group but not making the last 16?
Great comp DG & my selections will follow after some extensive study (not)

One point - there is no 3rd/4th play-off game in UEFA competitions
Moved here until start of Euros so more people see it, will move back to Euro board once competition starts.

Still looking for a prize :whistle:
