HostedPools debuted a pair of soccer pool options for last summer’s European Championship and things went reasonably well, and it was far more popular than we had imagined. We look forward to bigger and better things as teams from every continent (not you, Antarctica) compete for world soccer glory this November and December in Qatar.
We have the same World Cup office pool formats as we did for Euro’s. Set up your pool and invite your friends!
Pick’em World Cup 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 World Cup 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.
2022 World Cup Pools are now available! You can set yours up today. We’re also still hoping to be able to add pick’ems for the Premiership and/or Champions League at some point in the future.
