The Football Writers’ Association is celebrating the start of the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League season by launching a new football predictions iPhone app called Beat the Writers.
The game can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and gives football fans the chance to pit their predicting skills against nine of Britain’s top football writers, including Andy Dunn of the Sunday Mirror, Steve Bates of The People and Patrick Barclay of the London Evening Standard.
Each week, the writers will make their predictions for the ten biggest games of the forthcoming weekend and fans can browse their forecasts and make their own.
At the end of the weekend, the scores will be collated and players can see how they measure up to the writers. The app also offers the chance for players to see how they’ve fared across a month and the whole season.
Andy Dunn, chairman of the Football Writers’ Association, said: “The FWA are always looking out for new ways to connect with fans, and the Beat the Writers app is a great opportunity to do that.
“As football writers, we pride ourselves on our knowledge of the game, so it’ll be great fun putting that to the test against fans!”
