Join AccountingWEB’s virtual World Cup sweepstake
For fans of the “beautiful game”, the World Cup match between South Africa and Mexico at 3pm this afternoon kicks off a month-long footballing feast.
Those who aren’t interested, please look away now as AccountingWEB.co.uk is throwing itself headlong into the cauldron of hype with an online sweepstake. Even if you aren’t interested, you can still take part, and could find yourself the winner of a highly desirable consumer electronics device.
Thirty-two teams are taking part in the competition, so if we get more than 32 entrants, we will take the sweepstake forward to a knock-out round.
The World Cup virtual sweepstake is open to any registered AccountingWEB.co.uk member (no Sift Media staff members or their families, sorry). To take part, please post a non-anonymous comment below so we can add your user name to the digital hat.
Entries will be open until 12.30pm on Monday 14 June, when our referee, head of marketing Darren Falkingham, will compile a spreadsheet list using Excel’s RAND function to sort entrants into team groups, which will be published on this page.
The winner will be selected from the winning team’s group on Monday 12 July, the morning after the World Cup Final.
We’ll be asking some of our friends and suppliers within the profession if they’d like to join in the fun too, and if we are able to turn up a few more goodies, there might be some additional prizes. Just in case we need a tie-breaker, why not let us know who you think will win the cup, how well you think England are going to do, and the most exciting/amusing incident that you think will happen during the tournament. Even if you don’t win a prize, you can still impress your friends and fellow AccountingWEB members with your footballing clairvoyance!
You can also come along and indulge your footballing passions in AccountingWEB’s humour and fun group.
