Running a World Cup Sweepstake

Instructions for running your very own World Cup sweepstake are as follows....

  • Print out the 2026 World Cup sweepstake kit, cut out each teams name, fold them in half and then put them into a hat or a container for participants to select an entry from.
  • You can then decide how much to ask per entry. For example, with 48 competing teams you could charge £2 per team, which would make a total prize fund of £96.
  • Next, get your friends/colleagues to draw team names from the hat or container. It's probably a good idea to keep a record of who drew which team, and also jot down a mobile number for each participant, to save any confusion once the tournament has ended.
  • It's important to ensure that you sell all of the teams. Plus, it's advisable to keep the teams that have already been picked a secret until they've all been selected. This reduces the chance of you not being able to sell the lower ranked teams that could still be left.
  • After the World Cup has been won you can then distribute the winnings! If participants paid £2 per entry as detailed in the example above, the prize fund would be split as follows: World Cup Winner: £50, Runner up: £25, Third place: £15 and Fourth place winning £6.

And that's really all there is to running your very own sweepstake competition for the 2026 World Cup that's all set to kick-off on the 8th of June in North America!
