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 :D

4th Guess: Telkom

If we are allowed 4th guess :D

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.

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

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.

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 :D

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

Should be fine for now, but thanks for the offer. I'll give you a heads up if I do at any point though! :p

Afraid not with both of those, no.

PS: I presume I have 3 guesses, I am going for Nandos (The only African Trans-National Company), Wal-mart and Adidas

I wondered if anyone would get that... the Nando's African Super Cup nets you a cool £1M.

(Nando's is a Mozambiquan company based in South Africa, for those who didn't know.)

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! :p 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.
