Football Fives and Fantasies
With the world cup kicking off, and something else called the premier league also happening, there has been a lot of talk about football around the office. The last time I watched football was via a Bend it Like Beckham dvd, so hopefully everything below is accurate and conveys a sense of excitement that I do not necessarily share.
Regular 5-aside meetups have returned at Belfast HQ! There's no pictures yet, because everyone was busy playing instead of photographing, so you'll have to make do with this artist's impression.
Our Fantasy Football league is alive and well after our rebrand.
If you're like me and have no idea of the rules of football, be it fantasy or reality, here is how it works according to Simon, our Fantasy Football dungeon master:
Each game week, players will choose one team who they think will win from the English Premier League fixtures. The team selected has to win in order for you to survive in the competition. Players CANNOT select the same team twice! For example, if you select Liverpool to win in week 1, you cannot select them again for any future fixture.
This will repeat each week until the LAST PERSON STANDING wins the prize of a £50 Amazon voucher, and company bragging rights.
We're also running a sweepstake for the women's world cup, with a £200 prize pot on the line. (Or is it in the net? Goal? FUTBOL)
