Mayo Club 51 have joined this year and we have set up a football “mini league” called Mayo Club 51. To join our football mini league just enter this code: E3ElAEFjJDsF we recommend to copy & paste code to ensure the correct code is entered.
There is no limit to the amount of mini leagues you enter (last year I was entered in 4 leagues!) You only need to enter your predictions once each week, all the different leagues you are entered into will be updated automatically. The code above is for the football league, if there is enough interest in a hurling mini league, let us know and we’ll set one up. Although its mainly for a bit of craic and to test how well you know your football, we’ll have a look through the attic and basement here in Mayo Club 51 and see if we can come up with a prize for the winner of the predication league at the end of April. We also will do a weekly league table update here on the site. If you have any problems joining our mini league please contact us.
The competition starts with the first round of leagues games in February and concludes with the last fixture of the leagues regardless of whether it is a final or not. If any fixture or a final is drawn and goes to a replay, then the replayed fixture will be included in the competition for predicting.
