    Good god. Guess this serves me right for going out last night and neglecting to check the thread until this evening. Really hoping I've not made any mistakes here... Right then:

    Three correct answers! The Nestlé European Cup and the Qantas Oceanic Premier Division both win 100 rep points and £1M, while the Toyota Asian Divisions 1-3 earn £1M.

    That's your call, nothing against the rules there! Of course, they may not be too happy with you if your answers are wrong!

    All these things are likely to be allowed yes, I'll need to reacquaint myself with FMRTE first.

    Going to try and pick off the Oceania ones...

    2cnd guess: Qantas airlines
    3rd guess: Origin energy

    not sure if I get a 3rd guess but some people have done and I don't want to miss out again!
    You were right with Qantas but I'm afraid it was already said! (I know it's spelled slight wrong but I'd be a cruel man if I rejected the answer because of that.)

    Yes indeed! The Shell European Premier Division wins you that 100 rep bonus and £1M.

    Hmmm it's worth a try, but I have the oddest feeling he would reply with 'when you complete my youth challenge', and believe me, there is no chance of Lowestoft winning the CL anytime soon haha!

    Fair play to him, I was an hour late

    Thank you

    I promise Lowestoft will get out of the BSN in the next 10 seasons!


    My next guess would have been China Petroleum & Chemical (or Sinopec as they can be known), as there are a fair few energy giants but still one slot left going in Asia. Worth a punt if anyone is all out of ideas...

    (Don't be mad when it's wrong though!)

    I think this is number three. I hope for his sake it is! Bang on though. The AT&T North American Premier League nets that 100 rep bonus and £1M, good work.

    Still looking for plenty more people signing up, interest seems to have died significantly since the first day or so. I'm hoping this is down to the large number of posts in this thread; maybe people think that it's an indication that it'd likely be full by now.

    I wasn't planning to; there's still people (slowly anyway) signing up so it's only fair to give them a shot at the prizes should they want it. I may well end up giving everyone another crack at some point though.

    I have thought about it, do people think it'd be worthwhile? After all, it'd only really be an aesthetic benefit for me while I'm holidaying through; you guys would get to see them perhaps once a season!

    Five decent guesses there for the South American sponsors but unfortunately none are correct. I'm hoping the two left over aren't too obscure.

    Nope, none of these are sponsors. Good guesses though.

    There we go! The final European sponsor: the BP European Divisions 1-4. That's £1M coming your way!

    Just realised I probably shouldn't have pointed out these weren't correct, considering someone else may have wanted to have a go with them. Suppose I've saved them the trouble now though!

    Maybe it's being sponsored by one of the drug cartels. They have gobs of cash. :P

    Your maths looks fine to me! No, they haven't been said (surprisingly) but unfortunately they aren't sponsoring anything.

    Just a question. How long until this challenge ends and another ones starts? Will it be after the start of the actual game?

    Damn, I would have thought Red Bull with all their involvement in sport would be interested

    2nd guess - Toshiba, only other one I can think of at the moment

    Hadn't starting allowing fourth guesses yet! Probably at some point today I'll start accepting them, just waiting for those who haven't had three to take a quick go at it if they fancy the opportunity.

    Probably before then; there's a LOT of database building to go before the game can begin, around 20-25% of spots have filled so far, so I've got to create a heap load of generic AI run teams while still waiting for others to take over those teams if they want to.

    Afraid they aren't sponsoring either.. Both sensible choices as well.

    I'm also now allowing fourth guesses, until tonight. (This is only for those of you yet to win one of the prizes).

    I'll tell you now, that of the 7 remaining sponsors, two are national banks, two are national airlines, one is a brewery, one a mining company and one a chemical company.

    Also still looking for plenty more people to sign up

    Lots! Only around 50 or so have been taken, and there's around 200 in total I believe. I'm not expecting them all to be filled by any means.

    Disagree. Would be an unfair advantage in challenges.

    Secondary teams wouldn't be eligible for challenges I assume. Either that or each person can only enter once and the award goes to one team only, you could let the person pick which team or just say that all awards only go to the persons primary team.
