Sports Prophet is Back

What is Sports Prophet

Sports Prophet is an Irish owned sports prediction website which facilitates fundraising for clubs.
Competition leagues are set up and points rewards for correct predictions.
Entry into the Lux GAA league is open to anyone, members and non-members alike.

The concept is simple

You predict the winners of various sporting events during the 2012 calendar year (GAA, Rugby, Soccer, Golf etc). Points are awarded to each entrant for every question they predict correctly. However if their particular choice for that question only comes second or third or reaches a final or semi-final etc you may still earn some points (The exact points available for each question can be seen on the prediction sheets).

Costs / Prizes

Entry is a mere €10, and you are not limited to how many times you can enter.
The prizes are as follows: (1st) €100 and a Hamper of Quality Irish Products from our Sponsor Éirelux , (2nd) €75 and a Bottle of 2006 Tattinger Champagne, (3rd) €50 and a selection of Quality Beers curated by our Sponsor Decibel within the Lux GAA club competition. You can also win your choice of either 2 All-Ireland Hurling or Football tickets if you finish top of the Overall Player Leaderboard on SportsProphet.ie.

Men’s Football progress into Semis

from wort.lu
Luxembourg’s Gaelic footballers returned victorious from the first round of the European Gaelic Football Championship in Maastricht on Saturday.

The game between mainland Europe’s oldest club, Gaelic Sports Club Luxembourg and a side made up of players from clubs in den Haag, Eindhoven and Maastricht, was a close and entertaining match.

In the end, Luxembourg beat the combined Dutch team by two points with a score of 2 – 7 to 3 – 2 (in Gaelic Games a goal is worth three points).

Gaelic football matches in Europe are typically played on modified soccer or rugby pitches and have 11-man sides due to the smaller dimensions. The municipal authorities in Maastricht have built an all-weather, full-sized Gaelic Football pitch allowing Saturday’s game to be played in the same way as matches in Ireland with 15-men a side.

The weather was also familiar to the Irish players, with a grey cloudy sky and a swirling wind that kept the score low. Luxembourg travelled with a large and experienced squad. The team have been training hard all summer in Stade Michel Wagner and played very well.

Luxembourg will return to Maastricht on September 28 to play the Guernsey Gaels from the Channel Islands in the European semi-final. The finals will take place the next morning.
