Submit your answers via the form at the bottom of the page.

You can also enter via the IAK Facebook page or by email to IAK.euro2016@gmail.com

Deadline 12 pm (Midday) Korean time on Wednesday June 15th.

Please make clear who you are when entering.

The 2016 European Championship in France (June 10 to July 10) is providing
ex-pats from the whole island of Ireland a double reason to cheer this time, 
as both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland compete.
 
(Please check directly with venues for matches being shown live.)
 
Both teams for the first time take part in a major soccer tournament at the same time and, as well as hoping you will look around this new website, to celebrate, the Irish Association of Korea (IAK) is offering 300,000 Won cash prize to the lucky winner of our FREE TO ENTER sweepstake as well as other smaller prizes. Should one of the Irelands win, and that is the team you have been allocated, you have the chance of winning 1,000,000 Won !
 
Entries from anywhere in the world are accepted.
 

Based on a draw, the person allocated the winning team will receive a prize of 300,000 Won rising to 1,000,000 Won if either the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland lift the trophy and that is your allocated team.

In addition, those that have been allocated the country with the worst performance record at the end of each round (up to and including the semi-final stage) will be rewarded, again based on a draw, with a 50,000 Won cash prize.

 

In the likely event that two or more people have been allocated a prize-winning team, those names will go in to a draw to determine the winner. No prize will be shared. Winners will be contacted directly after the tournament.

Allocation of teams

Countries will be drawn from a pot of the 24 teams taking part in the tournament (1-24) and matched to the entrants. Entrants 25 to 48 will be matched again to one of the 24 countries in a new draw. For example the first person to enter will be allocated the first country drawn, the second person the next country drawn and so on to 24. The 25th person will be allocated the first country drawn in the next draw , the 26th, the second drawn and so on. The draws for teams will continue in blocks of 24 where possible.

The final draw after the deadline on June 15th. will take place from a full pot of the 24 teams regardless of the remaining number of entrants being below 24.

Therefore there is no advantage gained by entering closer to the deadline.

Depending on how many entries, each country will, more than likely, be allocated to more than one entrant. If the country allocated to you wins a prize, a draw will take place among those allocated the same country. One person will win and the prize money will not be shared.

 

 

Publicity

All names of those entered will appear alongside their allocated team on this site. Winner’s names will also appear. If you do not wish your name to be used here or on Facebook or in any publicity please provide us with a pseudonym. The IAK will however have to verify who you are in the event of you winning any of the prizes. Prizes will only be paid directly into a bank account of the winner.

 

Terms and Conditions

  1. One entry per person.

  2. The closing date for entry is 12 pm, (Midday) Korean time on June 15th 2016. At this stage of the tournament every country will have played one game. 

  3. Entries from anywhere in the world are accepted however should an overseas entrant win, any bank charges incurred from transferring money out of Korea will be deducted from the prize.

  4. Wrong answers or incomplete entries will be deleted.

  5. Entrants will be assigned a team by means of a draw based on the order of entry in blocks of 24.

  6. Entrants' names and their allocated countries will appear on the website after each draw of 24 and the final list after the 15th of June. No acknowledgement of entries will be sent. Check this website for updates.

  7. The prize for who has the worst group stage team will be decided based on lowest points gained by that team in the group matches. When two or more teams finish the group stage with equal points, the team with the worst goal difference will be chosen. If goal difference results are equal, disciplinary record (yellow/red cards received) will be used and if still equal, a random pick. In subsequent rounds, losing teams with the worst goal difference will determine who is the winner. Where two or more teams are involved in a penalty shootout, the team with the most penalties against will determine who is the winner. Again if equal, disciplinary records will be taken into account and if still equal, a random pick.

  8. Prize winners will be contacted directly by email and their names will appear on IAK publicity.

  9. No IAK committee member or volunteer is eligible to enter.

  10. The IAK will award prizes after the tournament ends in accordance with the terms outlined here and no correspondence in any circumstance will be entered into.
