This is a game in which you and the other players try to predict the results of the matches in the FIFA World Cup 2022.
You will get awarded points for guessing who wins each match (local / visitor / tie), and even more points for guessing the exact final score of the match (more below).
You also need to guess, before FIFA World Cup 2022 starts, who the champion, runner-up, and third place will be. Whoever gets the most points at the end of the tournament wins!

One of the things that makes this polla (pool) way more fun than others is that you can edit your predictions however frequently you'd like... up until each match has started. This allows you to refine your predictions as you watch the teams play throughout the tournament.

To add to the excitment, once a match starts every prediction made by every other player is published so you can follow along. Points and rankings are recalculated live as goals are scored. Even Tunisia vs Australia is exciting when you play Polla Qatari 2022!



  1. Anyone can play.
  2. You may enter more than once, as long as you pay the entry fee again. You will need to use different email addresses.
  3. In order to play, the entry fee must be paid before the first match of the tournament begins.
  4. Predictions for champion, runner-up, third place must be submitted before the tournament begins.
  5. Predictions for each match must be submitted before the match begins.
  6. You can edit your predictions all you want, as long as the match hasn't started.

Point system

Predict the Winners of FIFA World Cup 2022.
  1. Select who you think will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
  2. Exact prediction gets you 3 points. For example, you guess Mexico will win and it happens.
  3. Inexact prediction gets you 1 point. For example, you guess Mexico will be second but they are actually champions.
  4. Predicting that a team makes it to the top three but they don't gets you 0 points. Oops!
Predict the scores for each of the matches.
  1. Predict the exact score for the match, then you get 3 points.
  2. Predict the outcome of the match – who wins, loses, or if there is a tie – but not the exact score, then you get 1 point.
  3. If your prediction for the outcome of the match is wrong, you get 0 points.
  4. For playoff games, only the score after regular time (first 90 minutes + injury time) is taken into account. Extra time and penalties are not considered.
  1. All points obtained are added in order to obtain your total.
  2. If you don't submit a prediction before its deadline, you get 0 points for it. Oops!


The prize money will be given out at the end of the tournament based on how many points each player received. The total amount is the sum of each player's entry fees ($35) minus administrative costs ($5).

    Player with the most points gets 70% of the prize money. In case of a tie the 70% is evenly split amongst those players.

  3. Third Place

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why are you doing this?
  2. For fun. I love running it, I love developing it, I love playing it. People who have played before love it too. It makes the tournament so much more fun.

  3. How do we know "the admin" won't run away with all of our money?
  4. Everyone here is a friend or a friend of a friend. If you landed here randomly you are welcome to join. But if you have trust issues, maybe you should not play.

  5. I have sent my payment, but my name does not show up immediately in the Results page. I AM FREAKING OUT
  6. Relax. Entering payment information into the database is one of the few non-automated things in Polla Qatari 2022. It may take up to a day. As long as you send the payment before the first game starts, you are OK.

  7. $35 is a lot of money! I have mouths to feed. Why so expensive?
  8. Inflation. But if you can't afford it then you could try to play for free by getting 6 referrals. More information in the payments page.

  9. $35 is too little! I want the prize to be larger because I plan to win. Why so cheap?
  10. It is a delicate balance. I want as many of my friends to join, not only those with gambling problems. But I also want the prize to be attractive. $35 is what I landed on.

  11. A goal was scored and it's been over 8 seconds and Results is not updated. I AM FREAKING OUT
  12. Relax. Entering scores is the other non-automated thing in Polla Qatari 2022. Even our small contingent of soccer-loving volunteers fall behind once in a while. Please be patient.

  13. Is it ok to use the same password as the one I use for my bank account?
  14. Passwords are stored securely (hashed and salted) so even I cannot read them. The website uses TLS so all traffic is encrypted. With that said, please be safe and use a unique strong password.

  15. Can "the admin" play?
  16. Hell yeah! I want in on the fun too! And since everyone can see all posted results, it's not like anyone can cheat.

  17. Can I see/edit my predictions?
  18. Yes. Just go to the Predictions page.

  19. What's the deadline date for entering predictions?
  20. For your convenience, the deadline for entering winners and kickoff time for each match is right there in the Predictions page.

  21. When entering my predictions, Round of Sixteen and onwards shows question marks. How do you want me to possibly predict those?
  22. As teams advance to the next round, we will update the Predictions page to show them properly.

  23. What about extra time and penalty kicks?
  24. They are not considered. Only enter the predicted score for the regular time! This means that you could enter a tie for the Final, if you believe it will go to Extra Time.

  25. I do not follow soccer and I think Pelé is an STD, can I still play?
  26. Of course! Odds are you will beat some soccer "experts" anyway.

  27. OMG I found a bug! How do I report it?
  28. If something does not work as expected or you see any other mistake, click "Contact" on the bottom of the page to send me an email.

  29. OMG I have a question that isn't listed here! How do I ask it?
  30. Click "Contact" on the bottom of the page to send me an email.

Good luck!
