Sportstalk Social Premiership Last Man Standing Contest. 50 SBI To The Winner

in #footballlast year


With just over two weeks until the start of the premier league in England we are taking entries into our Last Man Standing competition. The contest is getting popular in football circles. It is free to enter and you can win 50 SBI if you are the last man or woman standing.

The main post I did last week and you can look at it here
But the main points are below

So What is Last Man Standing?

It is very simple. Just pick the winner of one premier league match each week. If the team you select wins then you are through to the next round.
If you lose or draw then you are knocked out.
Now here is the catch. You may not pick the same team twice in the competition. The winner will be the last man or lady left.

How Do I Know What Teams Are Playing?

The Last Man Standing rounds will play out during the weekend fixtures between Friday and Monday night. I will be posting the fixtures in a post on the Wednesday before each round of fixtures.I will include the tag lastmanstanding. Midweek fixtures are not included. If a team you select plays in a match that is canceled or postponed then you will continue to the next round. The first round of fixtures starts in August.
Here are the fixtures. Please select one team that you think will win to proceed to the next round of fixtures.

How do I enter?

It is free. You just comment your selection below. Just one team. I will do the rest. If they win you are through to week 2 where you will select a different team.
This is alot harder than you think. Picking the top 6 at the start will make life harder for yourself in the latter rounds. Pick the bad teams and you risk knockout. Plus there are always the dreaded draws that can knock you out. The fixture list for the whole season is public so the experts among you can make a strategy on what teams you will select to avoid getting knocked out early.
The deadline for entries is 2 hours before the kick off of the first game in the round. So for this round it will be 6pm on Friday the 9th August. We will not be accepting any new entries after this date either because the contest has commenced.
If a contestant reaches the next round and does not give me a selection before the deadline then I will automatically pick them the team that is closest to the top of the league(a team they have not previously selected.)

Entries So Far

So 17 brave soulds have entered already. Good for the first post. Hopefully word will start spreading now but we have a healthy number already and a wide variety of teams. The team selections are telling me alot about the path some people are taking on their last man journey. Burnley to beat Southampton is a brave one. Noone has selected liverppol yet, or Chelsea or United.

EntryTeam Selected
@fejalrahemanTottenham Hotspur
@nuralishaikhLeicester City
@blazingManchester City
@mahtabansari370Crystal Palace
@obestTottenham Hotspur
@praz735u5Leicester City
@melinda010100Leicester City


So we are starting with 50 SBI to the winner and 20,000 Sports Tokens. The competition will last between 5 - 7 weeks so we will be doing another one after it depending on how popular this becomes. I have some special consolation prizes to the loser salso from blanchy's hamper. @melinda010100 won a service for her moped in the last competition. She still has not cashed that in!!.
Just select a team. It's free. You can only get knocked out and there always is a few surprises in the 1st week. I predict a 50% knockout rate.I look forward to hear your team selection Steemians and S-talkers!!



Well done on bringing this back!

I'm gonna go for Tottenham.. 😬
