The Holiday season is almost upon us and for FIFA Club members that means it’s time for our annual FIFA/FIFPro World XI Predictor game!
Starting 2 December you can begin forming your favourite 11 players for the past year in world football. Predict the actual team that will be announced in Zurich at the FIFA Ballon D’Or on 13 January 2014 and you could win a trip to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final!
The Grand Prize winner for the FIFA/FIFPro World XI for 2013 Predictor gets a trip for two to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final including flights to and from Brazil, three nights accommodation and a pair of tickets to the Gold Medal match!
All Club members that correctly predict the official FIFA/FIFPro World XI for 2013 will be entered into a Grand Prize draw. In the event that no one gets all 11 names correct, the player with the closest prediction to the World XI will be awarded the prize. The first name drawn will win a trip to the Final. The 2nd to 10th names drawn will each win some incredible runners up prizes including Ballon d’Or jerseys signed by famous players from the mens’ and women’s game including Neymar, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pep Guardiola, Homare Sawa and Abby Wambach.
