You are free to create your own competitions for whichever league you like. Either by using one of the predefined leagues, or by fetching the league ID From Everysport.
Unfortunately Everysport is a swedish-only site, but try to find the league you want your competition to be based on and copy the ID from the URL. For championship/World Cup etc, more ID's are needed. Read more on that below.
For example Premier League 2017/18 - http://www.everysport.com/sport/fotboll/2017-2018-int/england-herr/premier-league/81211 - the ID is 81211.
As the creator for a competition you have to manually start it and finalize it. Do this from the admin section that can be reached from the main competition page.When finalizing, the winner will be picked and all users will get score added to their total score.
There are two different types of competitions:
You bet on each teams final position and get 1 error for each position you are off.
The winner is the one with least amount of errors.
This type of competition must start with a group stage followed by a playoff phase. Such as World Cup, Euro Cup, etc.
The participants first bet 1X2 in all the group stage matches, and then which teams will go through to each of the playoff phase. Finally, a winner will be guessed.
You get 1p for each correct bet during the group stage, 2p for each correct team to each of the playoff phase, and 5p for the correct winning team.
The sensation team question can give you up to 10p extra. Based on how many other people in the same competition that has betted on your sensation team in their own ordinary bet. The fewer, the higher points.
You can create competitions for any championship/cup in any sport. If the specific championship isnt listed as a predefined when you create a competition, its easiest to mail us and we help you. Or do like this:
Go to everysport (swedish site) and find the main page to the event, then you need to locate each group for the event in the left menu.
Go to each group and playoff phase in the left menu, and copy the ID for that specific group/playoff. Its in the end of the URL, usually around 5 digits.
The ID from the main event page should NOT be included. But again. Just mail us and we help you instead!
Every user also has a total score. This score is based on the result from all the competitions the user participated in, unless the competition had less than 6 participants in it.
The total score is based on:
- Number of errors in table competition.
- Number of points in championship competitions.
- Extra scores will be given to the winner of the competition.
- Extra scores will be given if you guessed the winning team.

Lotteriinspektionen (swedish thing)
As we (the developers) are from sweden we have to inform you about some basic things before creating your own competiton. To make sure its fully legal, follow the below two criterias.
Choose a secret and share your secret and competition with people you know or have a shared interest with (football team, working place, forum, etc) and you are totally fine.
- The circle of participants should be closed. This means that it must be decided in advance who will have the opportunity to participate and that noone else is given the opportunity to participate.
- The participants should have a common, shared, interest.
