Plugin to manage and present a fantasy football (soccer) competition for the UEFA 2012 Euro Championships
There are extra dummy 'placeholder' teams to fill-in the knockout results tables. Once a team has progressed through the group stage to the knockout stage edit the match schedule to change the placeholder team to the actual team.
In the Teams and Matches menu, select the Matches tab then click the Modify button in the table below, update score and check 'Match Finished'
All dates and times are stored internally in UTC and only converted on display to match local time using the WordPress locale settings.
To allow users to toggle between match local time and users local time see details in the setup section.
Use the shortcode
[euro-2012-predictor group=1]. For more options see the usage section.
At the knockout stage if a user predicts a win e.g. 3-2 they get either the exact points if the result is 3-2 or the win points if the result is 1-0
Penalties are included in either of the above, so if a user predicts 1(5)-1(4), and result is 1(5)-1(4) then exact points, if the result is 2(5)-2(4) it’s a correctly predicted win, however if the result is 1(4)-(1)5 they get points for the goal draw. It’s a reward for getting it ‘half-right’. If you don’t like that behaviour then once all the group match results have been entered and all the predictions scored, then modify the scoring configuration to change draw point to 0 (zero).
The bonus points for correct goals and goal difference ignore penalties.
There is nothing for extra time or golden goals as such.
In the Admin->Teams menu modify the Group Order field to sort the teams manually for those with equal points, matches, goal difference etc.
If at the end of the Group stage UEFA draw lots to decide the winner of a group in the event of a tie, use this option to manually arrange the group table order by using a lower group order number to promote a tied team up the table.
