This summer's football at Superbru!

Though we still have many events to look forward to at the back end of the current domestic football season including the Championship play-offs, Premier League final day, FA Cup final and Champions League final, it's time to start thinking about the range of tournaments taking place this summer (or winter, depending on where you are in the world!) that you can play along with at Superbru.

In total, there are 5 new football predictor games available for you to play throughout June and July. Here's a quick guide giving you some information on each of them, along with the links required to get involved.

May 23: U20 World Cup

This tournament may be of a slightly lower status in comparison to the other three World Cup's we have games for at Superbru in 2019, though it will still be very interesting to see who will come out on top in an event that has proved pretty unpredictable in recent years. Almost entirely dominated by Brazil and Argentina between 1993 and 2011, the last three winners of the U20 World Cup have been European with France (2013), Serbia (2015) and England (2017) the most recent champions.

This year's tournament will be hosted by Poland. Surprisingly, champions England haven't even qualified! The bookies have the talented French squad as this year's favourites with Argentina and Portugal also expected to be very competitive. The Argentinians will take on South Africa in their opening game at the end of Round 1 which begins with a clash between Tahiti and Senegal! Yellow Caps won't be easy to win in this one..

June 7: Women's World Cup

One World Cup is quickly followed by another with the Women's World Cup getting underway in France on the 7th of June. Held every four years since 1991, the United States have famously dominated this event. The USWNT (US Women's National Team) are three-time champions and have finished at least third in every single World Cup. The only other nations to have won a Women's WC are Germany (2), Japan and Norway.

The USA are joint favourites for this year's event alongside France with Germany and England the other recognised contenders. The opening match will see hosts France face South Korea at PSG's Parc des Princes.

June 15: Copa America

OK, first of all, we haven't placed incorrect teams in this tournament. Yes, Japan and Qatar really are competing in the 2019 'Copa America'. The pair were the finalists of this year's Asian Cup (Qatar won) and have been invited to ensure that the Copa America can continue with it's usual 12-team format. This isn't the first time teams from other continents have been invited to play in the event, one that I'm certainly not an expert on, so let's instead just focus on how the tournament may play out. It should be interesting with some very talented players involved!

As you'd expect, Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil have won the Copa America many more times than the other competing countries but it is Chile who have been the most successful nation of late. After defeating Argentina on penalties to win the 2015 Copa, Chile won a special centenary edition of the tournament in 2016 in the exact same way (on penalties against Argentina). The Chileans are expected to fall behind the 'big three' again this year though with the bookies particularly favouring hosts Brazil who also have a nicer looking group than their main rivals. They'll take on Bolivia in the 2019 opener.

June 16: U21 European Championship

Just a day after the start of the Copa America, we have the U21 Euro's getting underway. This year's tournament looks wide open given the quality squads so many of the competing nations have. Italy, who will host the tournament alongside San Marino, will fancy their chances as the country to have won this event the most times in history (5). However, England, France and Spain will also all be targeting nothing less than the title.

This tournament also acts as the qualifying process for the 2020 Olympics. Teams that top their group will automatically qualify for the Olympics with the best runner up from the three groups also progressing. Those four teams will of course also compete in the knockout stage of this tournament. The groups are as follows.

Group A: Italy, Spain, Poland, Belgium Group B: Germany, Denmark, Serbia, Austria (debutants) Group C: England, France, Romania, Croatia

June 21: Africa Cup of Nations

Finally, the 2019 AFCON will take us right up until the end of July and near the start of the new Premier League season as we see the tournament expanded to 24 teams and moved to June/July for the first time ever. Holders Cameroon were scheduled to host this year's event but were stripped of the tournament due to delays in the delivery of infrastructure meaning it will now take place in Egypt.

Here's how the groups look for the expanded tournament:

Hosts Egypt are the favourites with the bookies at the moment though Senegal and Nigeria who both impressed at last year's World Cup will both fancy their chances. As with all of these tournaments, there will be numerous quality players on show though it's unfortunate that Premier League duo Eric Bailly and Naby Keita have both already been ruled out with injury.

So there you have it, certainly enough predictor games to keep any football fan busy! We hope you enjoy the tournaments you have chosen to participate in. There will be plenty of updates relating to major news from each of them on our Facebook, Twitter and particularly our football-dedicated Instagram page throughout the summer.

Looking forward to this. Please let me know whether we can do Head to Head pools. I have one in Barney's Bandits / Major League Soccer and it just stopped working properly after Round 10.
