2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ – News – Last call for the Bracket Predictor!


Panama just beat the clock to snatch a Russia 2018 place. Will you beat the clock to sneak into the FIFA World Cup™ Bracket Challenge by Wanda, heighten your Russia 2018 experience and compete for some incredible prizes?

The deadline is rapidly approaching. This is your last chance to make some easy predictions and potentially win a massive trip to Madrid for a VIP experience courtesy of Atletico Madrid and Wanda.

The deadline is on Thursday 14 June at 14:00 CET.

The Grand prize
A VIP trip for two to Madrid includes: two economy-class flights from anywhere in the world, a three-night hotel stay and a VIP experience for two people at the Wanda Metropolitano, which includes watching a La Liga match and a personal meet-and-greet with some of Atletico’s players! For full details of the Grand Prize and Runners-up prizes visit our prizes page.


How to play
For each of the eight groups, simply pick the order in which the four teams will finish (i.e. Portugal to finish 1st, Spain 2nd, Morocco 3rd and IR Iran 4th in Group B). Then pick which teams will win the knockout-phase ties. It’s that easy and there’s no predicting scorelines. Simply use your team knowledge and instincts to predict winners and losers, from the first match to the Final Trophy lift.

Challenge your friends
Who doesn’t love battling for bragging rights with your buddies? Well, you can set up a mini-league and do just that.

If you miss the deadline…
You can still compete in the ‘My Knockout Bracket’, which opens at 21:00 CET on 28 June – just after the last group-stage matches end – and closes at 15:00 CET on 30 June. But you will surely not want to miss out on joining the fun for the group stage. Time is running out, football fans…
