The Football Season is Back!
Here's a quick overview of each of the football leagues you can make picks for this season.
Note: After receiving such positive feedback on our World Cup predictor game, all of our football predictor games will now include the new scoring system (1 point for picking the correct team without being particularly close to the scoreline, 1.5 points if you're close to the exact score and 3 points if you nail an exact pick).
Premier LeagueStarting with the biggest and most popular of our domestic football games, the Premier League returns on Friday the 10th of August as Manchester United entertain Leicester City at Old Trafford. As was the case last season, we'll be running our main predictor game alongside a fantasy game and newly improved 5-a-side fantasy tournament.
The Exact Score Challenge we run for the Premier League predictor game is also back this season, meaning anyone who is playing our Premier League predictor in any pool at all is in with a free chance of winning up to £50,000 in every round that contains 10 fixtures (nearly all of them).
Who's going to win the Premier League this year? You'd be brave to bet against holders Manchester City retaining their crown. Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and even perhaps Arsenal under Unai Emery will all be cautiously optimistic about there own chances of a title push, with Liverpool showing particular intent in the transfer market. Wolves, Cardiff City and Fulham are the newly-promoted sides we'll be seeing this year.

Elsewhere in the UK...As well as making your picks for the three newly-promoted Premier League sides, you can also submit your score predictions for recently relegated Swansea, Stoke, West Brom and co. in the Championship! England's second tier gets underway on Friday as Reading take on a Derby County side led by Frank Lampard - there'll certainly be a lot of people keeping an eye on how he gets on this season.
And if you're slightly familiar with the England team of the 2000's, you'll know that you can't talk about Frank Lampard for long without mentioning Steven Gerrard. The Liverpool legend is also about to begin his debut season as a manager this week as he looks to push Rangers back towards the peak of Scottish football. That task isn't an easy one though, with Celtic hot favourites to win yet another SPL title while Neil Lennon's Hibernian team are also likely to be strong this season.
In comparison, the Championship is one of the most unpredictable leagues in Europe so it's very tough to pick who will win it this season. There look to be several well-organised contenders including Stoke and Middlesbrough while slight outsiders Nottingham Forest and Leeds will each also be confident of a long-awaited return to the top flight.

European footballThere'll be even more football games added to this list once the Champions League and Europa League come around this season but for now we have the return of two of last year's tournaments plus a Superbru debutant - Serie A!
Lots of you have asked for it.. and now it's here! For the first time in Superbru history, we've decided to join Cristiano Ronaldo and play some #SerieA! Our new predictor game is ready for you to create some pools ahead of the new season!https://t.co/avKK0KK5s5— Superbru (@Superbru) July 12, 2018
The chances of Juventus claiming an unbelievable eighth consecutive Serie A title this season went through the roof when the club announced the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last month. You'll be able to make picks for the upcoming Serie A season at Superbru for the first time ever in 2018/19, adding to our La Liga and Bundesliga predictor games.
There are also hot favourites to win the league in both Spain and Germany with Barcelona and Bayern Munich currently seen as likely retainers of the respective titles they hold. La Liga is set to be very interesting this season though, even without the domestic Ronaldo vs. Messi battle. After controversially taking the Real Madrid job two days ahead of the World Cup and losing is his position as Spain's head coach as a result, Julen Lopetegui faces a tough opening season at the Bernabeu without Ronaldo, especially since neighbours Atletico have made several good signings this summer and will be competitive in the title race themselves.

South AfricaLast but not least, our PSL predictor game is back and ready for you to join with fixtures now finalised after the Ajax Cape Town court hearing. The opening fixture sees a belter take place in Pretoria as champions Mamelodi Sundowns take on Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld.
Last season, Sundowns finished five points clear of Orlando Pirates at the top of the division with Kaizer Chiefs finishing a disappointing 12 points off the pace. Saturday's game will therefore be an interesting indicator of what's to come between now and May.
