How Team Selector Works

This is an easy 1-2-3 step process as follows:

  1. Register a free account and select your favorite team.
  2. Activate your account via email.
  3. Sign in to your account.

Once you are on your dashboard page,

  1. The system displays details about your favourite team's next fixture.
  2. Click the "Team Selector" button and you will be taken to the Team Selector.
  3. Select your formation and pick your Starting XI Team through an intuitive drag-and-drop feature, and submit your selection.

That's it. You can select your team on your laptop as well as on your mobile device and from anywhere in the world.

Each user can select from a comprehensive list of formations in order to place players on the pitch. Offensive or defensive tactics, like 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2, 3-5-2 or diamond formation. All in all, 13 formations to choose from. The system will record one player in one position in a formation.

What Happens Next?

After the game starts, you can compare your starting XI team with the Coach Team. Predictal analytics service kicks in right after the start of the match and it will perform the following tasks:

  1. Collects users' personal teams and converts the players into votes for each favourite team.
  2. Publishes the first-level analytics as the list of Popular Formations and the list of Popular Players.
  3. Publishes the second-level analytics as the list of players in the starting XI team that garnered a team-based maximum votes in all 11 positions. This list reveals the team the community has chosen -- hence the term the "Community Team."

You can then compare your team with the Coach Team and the Community Team.
