Week 40

This is the website for the Brighton 2018 Fixed Odds League.

Each member selects one team from the weekend football fixed odds coupon to win, home or away. The official coupon is recognised as that being issued by Coral Bookmakers, specifically the long list on the weekend printed shop coupon. Each member pays one pound per week in to the kitty which is then used to place three seperate accumulators (one for each division) on the coupon for that weekend according to the selections made. Each member must also make an additional yearly contribution to the kitty of one hundred English pounds.

The League is split into three divisions, with promotion and relegation (one up, one down) between the Premier League/Division Two and Division Two/Division Three. Trophies are presented to each divisional champion to be held for one year. League positions are determined, in order, according to the number of correct (or incorrect) selections each person makes during the course of the season, the number of black crosses held and then by the value of those black crosses. Following that it's just alphabetical which means that a playoff situation will be generated when it affects promotion/relegation/league title. The terms of the playoff will be decided by the Chairman as he sees fit.

All the money won throughout the season, plus the yearly subs, is pooled into a kitty which then funds the AGM. Further payments into the kitty may be made by the Treasurer or the Chairman during the course of the AGM. These demands must be met in full by the members without question.
