The Official 'Better Than All The Rest'
FA Cup Prediction Game
 
The Knockout Stage Rules
 
The top two from each group (sixteen in total) will progress to the unseeded 2nd round draw which will be the beginning of the knockout stages (predicting 5th round results). The eight winners of those predictions will then enter the 3rd round draw (predicting the quarter finals), and then the four winners will predict the semi finals, and the remaining two will predict the final.
 
Point Scoring
 
The point scoring system will remain the same, with results counting at the end of 90 minutes. However, in the event of a tie the first tie-break will be to extend all replays to include extra time (using the original predictions) to see if this produces a clear winner. In the event of this happening then players who predicted a draw at the end of 90 minutes could lose points for the tie-break if a team wins in extra time. Penalties will not count towards the prediction game.
 
If the game is still tied after this then the tie breaks revert to the same order as the group stages.
