First Goal - Season Four


football forum
 Share

Recommended Posts

The fourth edition of the FIRST GOAL competition. This will run until the end of the 2022/23 season - most likely the Champions League Final on 10th June 2023 being the final game. This season's competition will also incorporate the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

First Goal Hall of Fame - Previous Winners

THE RULES:

  • One game will be chosen by me, usually at least 48 hours before. 
  • Games chosen will be from any competition around the world, usually with some significance or a game of high importance if possible.
  • Players will get 3 points if they guess the correct minute of the game's first goal
    • If it is a 0-0 draw and you predict 'No goal scored', you will also get 3 points.  
  • Players will get 2 points if they are 1 minute out either way i.e. goal scored in 30th minute and predictions are for 29th or 31st minute.
  • Players will get 1 point if they are 2 minutes out either way i.e. goal scored in the 61st minute and predictions are for 59th, 60th, 62nd, or 63rd minute
  • The official goal-time will be taken from flashscores.com
  • It goes without saying that the more often you predict in the competition for each game the more likely you are to finish top!

NEW for Season Four:

  • Throughout the season, you will all get a chance to pick your own TWO games to choose a First Goal for. This game will only apply to you, while the rest of the league for that round will have the games selected by me. This will only occur once for each person - you will be notified well in advance which round and dates this will apply for. 

This original post will be kept up to date with the rankings and selected fixtures.

All you have to do is post the minute for each game in which you think the First Goal will be scored in - it really is that simple :) . You do not need to post which team, scorer or how the goal will be scored, just the minute!
