    Hello everyone,

    I was browsing through the BIF forums for a while and didn't see any soccer BIF events. I was wondering if there is really no people in this community who enjoy good craft beer while watching Champions League/Premiership/Serie A/Bundesliga? Maybe we could get a bunch of guys and start somethin'.

    Would certainly be up for a World Cup one.

    You sound like just the person to start such an endeavor @grze

    Possibly. But I would need some major help since I have very little experience with BIF

    I'm still confused about the whole BIF thing so I never participated in anything. I agree that WC would be a great event for it. Argentina!!!

    Lol. That makes two of us :) But maybe that's the key...if we get enough first timers here who knows, maybe it will work.
    Anyway, I think I'l message a bunch of people who already are hosting that and see if they help me out with the organizing part and in the meantime I'll figure out the rules

    Bump. About a month away. @grze are you still game to start a WC BIF? ;)

    Sure. Since it's closer I have to research how those are handled and I'll try to post some details soon.

    Thanks for the interest guys. I will post some general rules within the next week or so once I figure out the best (and most entertaining) format to use for this one!

    I'd be interested. I ran a non-beer World Cup pool 4 years ago. 32 entrants. Double-blind team picking (32 entrants in one hat, 32 teams in the other, pick out 32 pairs at a time). Had prizes for getting into second round, advancing, and a special one for "most penalized." Not sure how it'd translate to BIF, but could be cool.
