    I created pooltracker.com in 1998, because I love sports and competition. I was the guy in school who ran pools for all my friends. I knew I could run pools online and get more of my friends to join in, so, I taught myself web programming and I was on my way. I've been running pooltracker ever since. In that time, I found that I love getting people together who share the passion for sports and competition like I do.

    I started charging money for people to use the site a few years ago and much to my amazement, the site has grown every year since. Now, it's more than just a hobby, it's a business and it takes up quite a bit of my time. I enjoy every minute of it and wouldn't trade it for the world.

    I think you'll enjoy this site so much, that I make this promise:
    I pledge to make things right, one way or another.. so, you and your friends can enjoy using pooltracker.com.

    What It Is

    Challenge you and your friends to a custom world cup pool. Everyone makes picks for each match and/or stage. View each other's picks and standings after each match.

    Accrue points based on the outcome of each match. Don't worry, we do all of the calculations..

     

    The object of the game is to accumulate as many points as you can each stage, for the entire tournament. On our standings page, you can view pool standings by stage or by the entire world cup tournament, at any time.

     

    There are 32 teams in stage 1, aka the "group stage", of the world cup, which are in 8 groups of 4 teams each. There are 48 stage 1 matches on the stage 1 picks sheet. The 48 stage 1 matches are known and scheduled, after the final draw is completed in December of the preceeding year, roughly 6 months before the first match.

    For stage 1, each team will play 3 games, in round-robin style. Each team will play each of the other teams in the same group. The top 2 teams from each group, 16 teams in all, will make it to stage 2, the knockout phase of the world cup tournament.

    Stage 2, the knockout phase, is bracket style, win or go home. Each round of the cuts the remaining number of teams in half, until the final, which will produce the world cup champion. There are 16 stage 2 games, which includes the 3rd and 4th place match.

    Teams for stage 2 games will be enterred into the system, shortly after they are determined.

     

    We tweet/post teams for stage 2 games and other things, via our twitter account and our facebook page. Follow us to stay abreast of the latest changes.

    We have 4 different scoring options to choose from.

    Straight Pick em

    Pool administrators can abdicate their admin prividges, to avoid any chance or thought of impropriety, from other poolies. We ask that the pool administrator send us an email requesting us to remove his admin priviledges after all the settings have been configured and all expected players have joined. This is so no other admin tasks are required.
