PMNYC World Cup Bracket Predictor (NOT an EVENT)

  • Jun 12, 2014 · 3:00 PM

Peñistas & Madridistas,

The season is coming to an end and although most years we'd be feeling the huge void left by a lack of fútbol, this summer we get to see most of the Merengues perform at the national level. So we thought it would be great to start a World Cup bracket with Peña members and close friends.

We have created a group called "Peña Madridista NYC" on the ESPN website: http://games.espn.go.com/world-cup-bracket-predictor/2014/en/group?groupID=11761 (If the page prompts you to give a password use: halamadrid) We invite you to sign in or register, and predict winners of the early round stages and make your way to the World Champion in Brazil. Note that you can create as many brackets as you want but you can only enter one in our group.

We will collect $20 per participant and will donate half of the funds to this charity: http://www.oneworldfutbol.com/ You can read more about them here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/09/giving/the-one-world-futbol-promises-a-lasting-source-of-fun-in-poor-countries.html?_r=0 )

The other half will go to the first (70%), second (20%) and third (10%) places as ranked by ESPN (you can read the rules here http://games.espn.go.com/world-cup-bracket-predictor/2014/en/story?pageName=worldcupbp\rules ).

Lucas & Cathy will be collecting the cash ($20) or you can pay via PayPal on the MeetUp page ($22 with fees).

We hope you'll join us and look forward to seeing you for the World Cup matches at Quinn's.

Hala Madrid!

    I can no longer RSVP. Can you either re-open RSVPs or post the link to PayPal so I can pay for my entry?

    Cool idea, Cathy. How do I pay via PayPal? I think I have to send it to a certain email address?

      Thanks Jamie! If you go to the meetup event and click on "pay online now" the payment will go to the Peña account. If you have any trouble let me know.
