World Cup Bracket Challenge
I'm starting a World Cup bracket challenge today. It is similar to the March madness, NCAA Tournament, bracket pool, but using the 32 nations of the world cup tournament instead. Here's how it works:
- In the preliminary round, you pick the winner and second place for each of the 8 groups. For instance in group A we have Germany, Costa Rica, Poland, and Ecuador. I could pick Germany to win the group, and Poland to come in second.
- Knowing who advances from each group you can seed the knockout stage bracket. For instance, group A's winner plays group B's second place first.
- Continue to fill out the bracket, picking the winner of each game, until you crown your world cup champion!
