  • What are 7OTB Teams?

    7OTB Teams consist of a team of between 5 and 7 players – workmates, friends, family – you choose. You can join or create a 7OTB Team using your unique username and password. Each week, the top five players’ scores in a 7OTB Team count toward the 7OTB Team’s combined score. If more than five players have the same points total, the top five player scores are determined as follows:

    1) Cumulative goal difference;

    2) Then goals scored;

    3) Then the timestamp of when the player’s selections were made, with the earliest timestamp of the last player to make their selections separating the scores – so get your selections in early!

    Please note that each 7OTB Team member must make their selections independently (see also our Terms and Conditions clause 3.7).

  • How do I follow my 7OTB Teammates?

    If you are in a 7OTB Team, you will also be able to see your 7OTB Teammates’ selections after 2.45pm on Saturdays.

  • What is the 7OTB Team League?

    The 7OTB Team League consists of every 7OTB Team throughout the UK and Ireland, and records their scores as the season progresses.

  • How are Weekly Team Competition Winners decided in the event of a tie?

    Naturally, the 7OTB Team with the most points from their total selections wins the Prize. If Teams are tied on points, the winning 7OTB Team is determined as follows:

    1) If there is no clear winner on points alone, we calculate each 7OTB Team’s aggregated goal difference (the 7OTB Team total of goals scored minus goals conceded). The Team with the best goal difference wins the Prize.

    2) In the event that this still does not produce a clear winner, we calculate the total of the goals scored across each of the 7OTB Team’s players’ Win selections, and the 7OTB Team with the highest total number of goals scored wins the Prize. (The Draw does not count for this calculation).

    3) If two or more 7OTB Teams are still tied, the 7OTB Team whose final completed individual player’s selections were submitted and received by 7OTB earliest in the week preceding that week’s competition compared to the other tied Team(s) will be the winner. The official timestamp of receipt held by 7OTB will be used to determine the winner.

    The same procedure is used for the 2nd and 3rd weekly Prizes. The earlier you finalise your selections, the more likely your Team is to win in a tie situation!

  • How is the Weekly Individual Prize Winner decided in the event of a tie?

    Naturally, the 7OTB Player with the most points from their total selections wins the Prize. If more than one Player scores the same points in any week, the following system is used:

    1) If there is no clear winner on points alone, we calculate each 7OTB Player’s goal difference (the total of goals scored minus goals conceded). The Player with the best goal difference wins the Prize.

    2) In the event that this still does not produce a clear winner, we calculate the total of the goals scored across each of the 7OTB Players’ Win selections, and the 7OTB Player with the highest total number of goals scored wins the 1st Prize. (The Draw does not count for this calculation).

    4) If two or more 7OTB Players are still tied, the 7OTB Player whose final completed selections were submitted and received by 7OTB earliest in the week preceding that week’s competition compared to the other tied Player(s) will be the winner. The official timestamp of receipt held by 7OTB will be used to determine the winner.

    The same procedure is used for all the other Prizes. The earlier you finalise your selections, the more likely you are to win in a tie situation!

  • How do I win the Jackpot Prize?

    In order to win the £1,000,000 Jackpot Prize, the following applies: each week your selections must be submitted by 2.45pm on a Saturday.

    You must successfully select all 7 selections over 4 consecutive weeks. If in any week you don’t manage to select all 7 selections correctly, the following week you revert back to week one of the rolling 4- week sequence. In other words, you go back to square one and start again.

    The first person to achieve all the required 7 selections, 4 weeks in a row, will be deemed the winner. If this is achieved by 2 or more people on the same week the Prize will be split.

    See 7OTB Terms & Conditions clause 4.9 for more details, and note especially that in the event that any selections you make relate to games that are postponed in any week for any reason, your selections in that week will not be counted towards the Jackpot Prize, but if you are already on a Jackpot Prize winning streak, you are not penalised as the following week counts as the next in your potential winning sequence.

    If you are on a winning streak on the final weekend of the 7OTB season, i.e. you have two or three consecutive sets of successful selections at that point, we will ‘roll over’ your winning sequence into the first week of the following season, so that you are not penalised. We will also do the same if you successfully make all 7 selections on the last weekend of the season.

    This Jackpot Prize is offered only once each season.

  • Can I register from anywhere in the world?

    Sorry, no. To be eligible for prizes you must be a legal resident of the UK or the Republic Of Ireland.

  • What happens when matches are postponed?

    All postponed games count as two points, but remember that you can change your selections up until 2.45pm on a Saturday.
