Finn Harps Euro 2024 Predictions Competition

Finn Harps are delighted to launch our regular predictions competition fundraiser ahead of the upcoming, worryingly Boys in Green free, European Championships.  Running in some form for over 25 years, international football tournaments are not the same without the Finn Harps predictions, and UEFA had been in touch wondering why we hadn’t launched yet!

So here it is, the competition where you need to either be a genius, or know absolutely nothing about international football, to have a chance of winning.  If you have never played before, the rules are simple.  Predict the result of all group stage games and the subsequent group standings, as well as the teams to qualify for each knockout stage, as well as picking the overall winner.  Points are awarded for each correct prediction as set out below.
