Predictor Game: Offers You Chance to Meet Vincent Kompany

It was about a month ago that we informed you about “Where Football Meets Trading” - the joint campaign of leading FX broker and the Manchester City Football Club, aiming to bring closer online trading and football. Back then we told you that the campaign includes all sorts of interactive content – which you can see on the designated website: But we are about to tell you about an exciting competition organized by – it concerns football, allows traders to win MCFC items and (hooray!) the chance to meet Vincent Kompany, the captain of the team. How great is that? 


You must be getting anxious about the terms of the competition. Well, fellow traders, it's called the Predictor Game and it will be of interest to those who are fond of predicting performance results. But you don't get to forecast Forex stats, you get to predict football match stats. 


Here is the deal, each week until May 11, 2014, you can see a pending match announced on the designated website. You have to sign up for the competition and post your predictions for:


1. the number of completed passes

2. shots on target,

3. corners,

4. goals scored and

5. tackles completed by Manchester City in the specified league match.


I'd like to give you a joker for all this stuff, but to me it seems like one and the same thing – kicking a ball. But I'm certain you can do better than me. Don't forget to enter the numbers not later than 11:59pm UK time on the day before the match. Once you submit that and the match for the week is over, you get a score in terms of overlap of your forecast and the actual figures. The closer your are to 100%, the better. The person with the highest score gets to win a branded merchandise from the MCFC worth GBP 100 (or more). You'll get it by courier so submit the correct address upon registration, please.


The weekly winners get to compete for the top prize – meeting Vincent Kompany in person in Manchester. The terms are simple – the one with the highest score gets the prize.


You'll be asking about whether you are eligible for the contest. You must be over 18 years old and you can be from any country apart from the US, Australia and Nigeria (sorry, guys). You don't have to be a client of – this is not a trading competition, and the broker aims for something bigger than money. Let's recall that “Where Football Meets Trading” is also a charity campaign. But in case you are unconvinced I have to say that the broker has a hidden motif – it wants to teach people that analyzing performance stats and having the ability to predict them is important.
