Fancy a flut­ter on the World Cup?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World of Sport -

THE World Cup kicks off on Fri­day and to keep you in­ter­ested in events in South Africa for the next month we’ve drawn up a sweep­stake kit. So why not add to the ex­cite­ment by get­ting your col­leagues in the of­fice or mates down the pub to join in the fun. It’s so sim­ple to or­gan­ise. First de­cide how much you wish to sell the teams for. There are 32 of them so a £5 stake would give you a pot of £160. Then you’ll need to break down the pot in prize money - say £100 to the owner of the win­ning team, £40 to the run­ners-up and £10 to each of the los­ing semi-fi­nal­ists. A stake of £3 a team would be a £96 pot and that could be dis­trib­uted as £60 for the win­ner, £20 for the run­ners-up and £8 each for the los­ing semi-fi­nal­ists. When you’ve de­cided on how much to charge, cut the teams out in the right-hand colum, place them in a hat and get sell­ing. Don’t for­get to keep a record of who draws which team by writ­ing their name in the space pro­vided. Good luck. The fi­nal is on Sun­day July 11 and be­low are the lat­est odds supplied by Wil­liam Hill.
