I almost want to give you some kind of reward for suggesting them. Sadly neither is correct.

[quote name='Babaginoosh']Can people who got it right guess again?[/QUOTE]

[quote name='TWFL']2nd: Nestlé 3rd: Hershey's[/QUOTE]

[quote name='ri916']1st guess- Quantas
2nd guess- Sky
3rd guess- Tesco[/QUOTE]

[quote name='mightymariner']Second guess:EDIT: already been said
Toyota[/QUOTE]

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

[quote name='glennuk']I have some ideas if i could give them to people, for good future relationships :)

PS: Does it matter what our relationships are with other clubs or does it not figure? Could i sell someone to another club, or arrange a friendly or pre season tournaments or loans, or is it all just done by the AI in game?[/QUOTE]

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.

[quote name='Jpr']Damn I went out earlier and was going to say google when you opened up second guesses!

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![/QUOTE]

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.)

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 :D :D

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 [I]think[/I] this is number three. I hope for his sake it is! Bang on though. The [B]AT&T North American Premier League[/B] 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.

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

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

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