HostedPools is adding a pair of soccer pool options to use for the major tournaments such as the FIFA World Cup and the European Championship beginning with this summer’s Euro 2020 (which was postponed from last year). A number of people have reached out to us over the time we’ve been running the site asking for pools for these types of events, and we’re finally making it happen. I guess there are some positives to being cooped up with not much to do.
Pick’em Euro 2020 Pool
Each round of the tournament schedule, you pick the winners (or a draw in the Group Stage) for each game. You can choose to have each game be worth 1 point, or have escalating points through the knock out rounds, so correct picks are worth more, as you go deeper in the tournament. The entry with the most points after the championship game is the winner. You can also set up your Pick’em pool for only the knock out rounds.
Bracket Euro 2020 Pool
Pick the entire knockout round bracket prior to the first game of the Round of 16. For each correct pick, you earn points, with correct picks in later rounds being more valuable. The entry with the most points at the end of the tournament is the winner. If multiple teams are tied, you may split the pot. You may also use a tiebreaker to determine the ultimate winner.
You can use our pricing tool to see how much a running a Euro or World Cup pool with us will be. Keep in mind all of our prices are in CAD.
Euro 2020 pools will be available by early April of 2021 and we will also be available for the 2022 FIFA World up next fall. We’re also hoping to be able to add league pick’ems for the Premiership and possibly Bundesliga in the near future as well.
