‘Last Man Standing’ is back

Due to the overwhelming success of the NCAFC Last Man Standing competition last season, we have decided to run it again! The entry fee will remain at £10 and the winner will receive a minimum of £300 (This may rise, depending on entry numbers). First round fixtures will commence on the opening weekend of the Premiership season, Saturday 16th August 2014.

 The Rules of the competition

1. It’s simple, just pick the winner of one English Premier League match each week. If your selection wins you progress to the next round, lose or draw and you’re out.

2. Once a selection is made, you will not have the ability to change it.

3. You may not pick the same team to win more than once during the tournament. So for example if you pick Man United in Game Week 1 and they win, then you can’t pick them for the rest of the competition.

4. Should you forget to make your selection in any round, you will automatically be assigned the highest placed team in the league that you haven’t already selected.

5. In the event that any match involving a team you have selected is postponed or cancelled for any reason, you will continue to the next round of the competition. That team will no longer be available for selection in future rounds.

6. Your round 1 and 2 selections must be submitted in the seller’s entry sheet. From round 3 onwards, fixtures will be text/emailed to each participant before 8pm on Thursday every game week. Your selection must then be submitted to us no later than 6pm every Friday.

How to enter

Entry can be obtained from any member of the Newry City AFC board and also through various senior players, senior coaches and supporters. We will also be taking entries at the Showgrounds shop during the friendly match with Donegal Celtic on Saturday 2nd August.

We also accept paypal payments. If you would like to enter this way then email your name along with your selections for Week 1 and Week 2 from the fixtures below to ncafclms@gmail.com. We will then give you details on how to pay the £10.
