    The new contest

    Contest Details

    Title: Are football fans morons?

    Intro- Football is a popular sport in the world with a lot of fans. The fans can go extra miles for their team. From paying huge ticket fees to traveling miles just to see their team play, you now wonder if they are idiots. Why go the extra length, why buy the club merchandise, why lose your voice due to shouts? You can just sit down, have a nice time with your friends and save yourself the stress and funds use to support your favourite club.

    Do you think football fans are morons? If yes, give reasons, if not give reasons too.

    Entry fee: (500 SPORTS). It should be sent to @zonefund with your post link as the memo. All entry fees will be sent to @null for burning which means permanently removing them from the supply.

    Word Count: Minimum of 400 words.

    Promotion: Promote your entries on Twitter, Facebook, Medium, etc. Include the promotion link at the end of your post.

    Deadline: Submission ends exactly 3 days from this announcement.

    Tags: Tags should include sportstalk, football and any other tags of your choice.

    Entries will be curated based on a set of pre-defined rules.

    You are free to modify the title but make sure it still contains the original title.


    30,000 Sports Power delegation will be shared between the top 3 winners in the ratio 3:2:1.

Thank you @zoneboy for this wonderful contest, i just hope more people will turn out for the contest soon to keep it alive. But it seems there is no different between the winner and the runner up here since you are giving out the same price or is it a typographic error?

Thanks. The error has been corrected.
