The official start of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa is now only one month away. Although the Vatreni did not qualify, it doesn’t mean that Croatians and their friends can’t have some fun picking the games while the World Cup is going on. You don’t have to be a soccer genius to participate and it costs nothing.
World Cup Pick ’em is exactly like picking your very own bracket for the NCAA Basketball tournament. You receive more points the further your teams get along in the tournament. Pick your two teams to get out of group stage and its all elimination games from there. The top players will receive something nice from CSR.

This past English Premiership season, CSR hosted it’s own Fantasy game with 30 players participating. It was a huge success and we will be sending out our newest Crottenham shirt to the top 5 in the standings. The premise of the game is to pick Premiership players who you believe will perform well during the season. How they do in real life is how you gain or lose points. You have $100 million to spend at the beginning of the season and you can transfer players on a weekly basis.
CSR will open a new English fantasy league once the World Cup ends. Keep an eye out!
Can Oliver Bujić, Barry McCabe, Pija Kemaman, Peter Valentić and Jack Rimac* please contact firstname.lastname@example.org on how to obtain your Crottenham shirts. They will be available June 1st.
