TD 2019 A-League

Competition Rules

The A League Tipping competition contains a number of rounds for entry (including the finals series).

The FREE tipping competition kicks off on 11 October 2019 and all travel industry staff are invited to register and test their predictive skills with amazing prizes to be won each week. The competition will close on 16 or 17 May 2020 (depending upon Grand Final date being advised).

To be eligible to enter the A League tipping competition you must be 18 years of age and over and employed within the Australian travel industry. Tippers must still be working within the industry at the end of the footy season to be eligible to win prizes.

The Travel Daily A League tipping competition is conducted online and via Travel Daily which is an Australian travel industry publication.

Tippers who register to compete online will receive two emails each week – the first one reminding tippers to submit their tips and the second email announcing the weekly winners with a link to the points ladder.

The competition ladder is sorted by score, then by a countback to previous rounds.

 

HOW TO ENTER

To enter, entrants must first complete the competition registration form on the Travel Daily Tipping Website (click on “Join”) by providing all requested details. Entrants must read these conditions and the rules for making tips “Rules” available on the site. Website: www.traveldaily.com.au/competitions/2019 20-A League-tipping-competitions/

By entering, entrants agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and the tipping rules. Entrants must select a valid username/ID and password at the time of registration. Entrants must enter their ID and password each time they wish to access the “Tippers” section of the Travel Daily Tipping website.

For each tipping round in which an entrant wishes to submit tips, the entrant must submit their tips for each match in the tipping round prior to the deadline for the match.

Entrants must make their tips on the tippers page at the Travel Daily Tipping website. Entrants may change their tips for a match, provided they do so prior to the relevant deadline for the first match of the round, as advised in the email communication to the tipper. If a registered entrant changes their tips for a tipping round, only the most recently entered tips have effect and each registered entrant will only receive one entry to the Tipping Round.

 

ABOUT TIPPING

Tips for each game can be entered or edited at any time before the commencement of the nominated game time for the first game of the round as featured on the site.

The competition “closing time” is 10 minutes prior to kick off first game of the individual round (Sydney time). For exact times please check the website each week.

Tips will NOT be accepted after a game has commenced.

Points for correctly tipped wins earn two (2) points.

Two (2) bonus points will be awarded for a perfect round when there are two or more games in that round.

Three (3) points will be awarded for a correctly tipped draw.

The maximum number of draws allowed to be tipped per round is two (2).

One (1) point will be awarded for an untipped draw.

Default tips for tippers who don’t submit tips or for late entrants is calculated as minus 1 (-1) point from the lowest tipped score.

 

TIPPER RANKINGS

Tippers are firstly ranked by their weekly score, where the highest score is the highest rank.

Each week, for one randomly selected game in the round tippers will be required to enter a margin (example – the number of points team 1 will beat team 2 by).

In the event of tied scores and margins, a count back on the previous weeks winning games (then margins) will determine the overall rankings.

Weekly winners will be determined by the user’s weekly score for the round.

End of season winners will be determined by total score and then by their total margin, and then by countback.

A person must not register more than once. There is a limit of one entry per tipping round per entrant.
