INDIVIDUAL CONTEST

The main attraction of Pronoleague is of course the individual prediction league. Anyone registering on the website is automatically included in the individual league.

    The individual league comprises two parts :
  • predicting the outcome of French Ligue 1 matches
  • predicting the outcome of special matches. These may be Premiership, Spanish Liga, French Cup, Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga, Champions League, UEFA Cup or international matches.
Important : both Ligue 1 predictions AND special matches count for the individual Pronoleague standings.

Criteria used to rank (in order of importance) :

  • 1. The total number of points (descending)
  • 2. The number of correct predictions with score - BPs (descending)
  • 3. The number of good predictions without score - BP (descending)
  • 4. The number of predictions (descending)
  • 5. The points per game average (descending)
  • 6. The date of player registration (ascending)

TEAM CONTEST

Once you've logged on to Pronoleague.com, you can join an existing team (provided that there are no more than five team members) or create your own team to take part in the team prediction league. The principle is simple: the team's points represent the sum of the points of each team member.

    This competition has a number of plus-points:
  • The team members motivate each other to enter their predictions. If a team member misses a Ligue 1 matchday or a special match, then the entire team is penalized.
  • Anyone joining in the course of the season can join existing teams and immediately take part in the battle for the title!
  • Radiation and resignations are prohibited between January 1 and July 15 of the current season.

UPDATES

As far as possible, the leagues are updated immediately after the matches but, on occasions, they may not be done until the following day. If championship matches are postponed due to bad weather for example, the league is only updated when the match is played (sometimes several weeks after the initially scheduled date). You will be informed either by RSS Feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/Pronoleague), or on the forum, when updates have been made carried out and those which are still outstanding.

VALIDITY OF PREDICTIONS AND CUT-OFF TIMES

In the case of the french championship, the predictions are closed 6 hours before the match.
If you are in Pro mode, the prediction cut-off time is at game time.
For special matches, the cut-off time is on game day at the start of the match. Beware: the fixture list published by the FFF at the beginning of the season is likely to be changed due to TV coverage. Generally, the fixture list is updated about two weeks before each matchday. Predictions can be entered for every Ligue 1 matchday until the end of the season, so you can predict early if you're going to be away or on holiday, etc. To do this, simply select the corresponding matchday on the left-hand side of the grid.

FRENCH CHAMPIONSHIP PREDICTIONS

Une fois inscrit, vous pouvez valider vos premières grilles de pronostics en cliquant sur le lien "Jouer" du menu. L'interface de pronostics comporte à la fois les grilles de championnat et les matchs événements. Lorsque vous cliquez sur le menu "Jouer", la journée sélectionnée par défaut est la prochaine journée jouable : c'est-à-dire la prochaine journée non mise à jour et qui n'est pas encore clôturée. Vous avez la possibilité de choisir la journée sur laquelle vous désirez jouer et même jouer sur la totalité des journées de la saison dès le début du championnat. Si la journée que vous avez choisie est encore jouable, vous pouvez saisir les scores un à un et valider la grille. Si la journée n'est plus jouable, vos pronostics s'afficheront avec le total des points que vous avez marqués pour cette journée (hors matchs événements). Dès que vous saisissez un score et que vous quittez la zone, le nombre de points potentiels que vous pouvez marquer est mis à jour sur la droite (hors points bonus) : vous pouvez ainsi estimer en "live" vos points en fonction de la cote (ramenée sur 100). Lors de la validation de votre grille, un message de confirmation s'affichera.

FRENCH CHAMPIONSHIP: POINTS SCALE

Au centre de la grille de pronostics, vous pouvez voir les cotes Pronoleague des matchs ramenées sur 100 participants.In the centre of the prediction grid, you can see the Pronoleague odds for the matches based on 100 predictors.

    The points scored on a French championship match break down into two parts:
  • points based on Pronoleague odds
  • bonus points based on the final score of the match


    Score bonus :
  • 1-0         8 points
  • 0-0         8 points
  • 1-1         8 points
  • 2-0         8 points
  • 0-1         15 points
  • 2-1         15 points
  • 2-2         15 points
  • 1-2         15 points
  • 3-1         15 points
  • 0-2         15 points
  • 3-0         15 points
  • 1-3         20 points
  • 4-1         20 points
  • 4-0         20 points
  • 3-2         20 points
  • 2-3         30 points
  • 4-2         30 points
  • 0-3         30 points
  • 3-3         30 points
  • Others   50 points

Points based on odds are calculated according to the predictions entered by the other participants in the prediction league.

    Example : MATCH : Bayern Munich - Inter Milan - Final score 2-2
  • [A] - 56% of players predict Byern Munich to win
  • [B] - 20% of players predict a draw
  • [C] - 24% of players predict Inter Milan to win
  • Players [A] will score 0 point
    Players [B] will score 56 + 24 = 80 points
    Players [C] will score 0 point.

    Bonus points are based on the final score and are fixed. See the "Score bonus" table.
    In our example, players [B] who predicted a final score of 2-2 will get 80 + 15 = 95 points. All others who predicted a draw with a different score will get 80 points.

    SPECIAL MATCHES: POINTS SCALE
