The sweepstake kit.
The FIFA World Cup; bringing together great countries and great players. It could also bring you and your colleagues closer together. There’s nothing like introducing a bit of healthy competition in your workplace, so we’ve put together this handy kit to help you set up a sweepstake in your office. How to Play 1. Cut out all the countries from the next page, folding each a couple of times before throwing them into a hat or bowl. 2. If you have more that 32 people who want to play you may want to print off and cut out two sets. If you have less than 32 people who want to play, we’ve ordered the teams with the most likely winners at the top so you can discard some of less likely nations. 3. Wander through your office asking people to take part. Before they pick a team, each player must contribute money to the prize pot. Make sure you collect the money before they choose a team – some people may be reluctant to pay if they pick out North Korea. 4. Write the name of each participant on the admin sheet and put a tick if they have paid. 5. Once all the teams have been distributed, sit back and enjoy the World Cup. 6. After the tournament, hand out the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. The prize amount will depend on how much each player puts into the pot, so for example: a. £1 Each – 1st Prize £20, 2nd Prize £8, 3rd Prize £4 b. £2 Each – 1st Prize £30, 2nd Prize £20, 3rd Prize £12 c. £5 Each – 1st Prize £100, 2nd Prize £40, 3rd Prize £20 Alternative Rules • To maintain interest for those with teams likely to get knocked out early, consider introducing a prize for the team that lets in the most goals during the group stage. Rather than cheering on the underdog, your participants will be hoping they’re on the wrong end of an 8-0 scoreline. • If your colleagues are bickering about who gets to pick a team out of the hat first, consider holding a penalty shoot-out in the car park to settle the argument. • Rather than handing out the prize in cash, you might want to put the proceeds behind the bar in your local pub where the winner can have a cocktail of their choice.
