It was only when I heard Des Cahill on the radio this morning trying to prise from Tomás Ó Sé some insightful wisdom about how Wexford will do against Louth in Leinster and what fate awaits Clare’s footballers when taking on the might of Waterford that I realised we’re on the cusp of the first proper weekend of Championship football once again.
Which can only mean one thing – it’s time to launch this year’s Championship prediction mini-league competition. Given that this is Friday and the ball gets thrown in on the first matches tomorrow evening, there’s no time for delay. If you want to take part in this bit of summer fun you needs to get moving now.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Log in (or register, if you haven’t yet done so) at facetheball.com.
- Under the ‘Competitions’ heading on the left-hand side click on the “GAA Football” tab and then join the ‘2019 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship’ competition and click to enter this.
- This takes you to the area where you make your weekly predictions and there are also a number of tabs on the panel on the left-hand side of the screen. Click the “Join Mini League” option, which will prompt you to enter the mini-league’s ID code.
- The code you need to enter is easy – it’s mayo.
- Click “Join” and that’s you in.
The deadline for the first set of predictions in this year’s competition is 7pm tomorrow (Saturday) so don’t forget to get yours done before then.
Best of luck to all who take part in this year’s Championship prediction mini-league. Let the games begin.
