THE GREAT UK PROGRAMME REPORTING EURO 2008 SWEEPSTAKE

Welcome to the great UK Programme Reporting Euro 2008 sweepstake! The drawer has taken place, and the teams randomly distributed among the competitors; some teams received by the competitors better than others. ;)

As I write this, the competition has got underway, with all the ceremony and fanfare leading up the opening game of Switzerland versus Czech Republic. There are a total of 31 games in the tournament, with two teams playing the maximum amount of 6 each, and only only one team winning overall. We've been fortunate enough to completely fill two sweepstake pots, making the rules of the sweepstake competition very simple: the competitors with the winning team take everything (32 each), with no other prizes awarded.

The table below shows who was randomly assigned what team and the results at each stage of the competition. The colour of each row is important; at the start of the competition, all the rows are green because all the teams are still mathematically in the competition. Once a team becomes mathematically unable to continue in the competition, the row becomes red (the term 'row' does not include the 'Progress Bar'). The 'Progress Bar' shows results of each game, and how far the team has progressed. A red block indicates the stage of the competition at which the team was knocked out.

This table will be updated throughout the tournament, so check back periodically so see if you're still in with a shout of that 32.
