I'm running a sweepstake for the FIFA world cup, largely promoted through twitter.

Anyone here interested?

Basic information:

$5 to enter, with 16 entrants in the sweep.

32 world cup teams are split into Tier 1 and Tier 2, the top 16 and the rest, and each entrant gets one random team from each pool.

Prizes awarded to those assigned the following teams:

$20 - Winner of World Cup
$20 - Team of the winner of the Golden Boot (as awarded by FIFA)
$20 - Team with the worst Goal Difference after the group stage (AKA the most rubbish team)
$20 - Team with the most red cards after the group stage (AKA the dirtiest team)

As you can see, there are fairly equal chances for anyone to win regardless of which teams they get, and theoretically one entrant could win all prizes - there is no limit to how many prizes an individual can win.

If interested please let me know - sweep not confirmed unless 16 places are able to be filled.
