Euro 2008 Sweepstake??

I'm thinking of running a Euro 2008 Sweepstake here on HUKD.
I ran one at college for the last world cup and it went well and made things more interesting. And with none of the home nations playing it might help to do the same this time.
I havent thought of all the details yet, just want to see if there is enough interest to get one going.
I think I would do it over paypal and the misc thread. There would be two running at the same time. A team Sweepstake and a score sweepstake.

Team - £1 per team. Player pays £1 for a team, when 16 people have payed. The teams are randomly drawn for each player, if your team wins the competition you win the £16.

Score - Player pays £1 for score sheet and predicts scores for every game. If you get the score correct you get 3 points, If you get the home score or away score correct you get 1 point. The player with the most points at the end of the tourniment gets all the money. So if 10 players take part the winner would get £10.

So, what does everyone think?

Here are the teams:

Group A
Switzerland
Czech Republic
Portugal
Turkey

Group B
Austria
Croatia
Germany
Poland

Group C
Netherlands
Italy
Romania
France

Group D
Greece
Sweden
Spain
Russia

i was brazil on here in the last world cup !!! got me no where haha

some one on HUKD ran something similar for the world cup, paid the £1 into his paypal account and at the end what ever money was there was split between 1st,2nd and 3rd i think, so it wasnt the full amount as paypal fees were taken off, still good however

Hope this helps, BTW im in :)

The teams will be choosen randomly, I will draw out of a hat. or if anyone has any good ideas on how to do it.
There is no limits on the amount of people that can take part, but for the teams sweepstake we need at least 16. and then another 16 after that and so on. So in other words we need either 16, 32, 48 people playing. But for the score sweepstake 1 or all 100,000 members can take part.
#23
Oh, and is it ok for me to open up two threads for this? one for the actual sweepsake and a descussion thread so that the other one doesn't get too messy. it could also double as the general descussion thread for the euros.
#24
Be a good idea taking a video of you drawing the names out of the hat then uploading it to a website so everyone can see :)
#25
i'll be in for a quid, makes it more interesting with england not been in it.
