How to run a FIFA World Cup 2022 sweepstake: Free kit and generator download

Planning on running a World Cup sweepstake with your friend, family or colleagues? We have everything you need for free ahead of the start of Qatar 2022.


The biggest footballing event on the planet gets under way on November 20 when Qatar take on Ecuador at Al Bayt Stadium and the tournament promises to be one like never before as the European club season pauses for an inaugural winter World Cup, and the Middle East plays host for the first time in its history.

Sporting Life's 2022 World Cup sweepstake package is far from your run of the mill kit, with the nations ordered from 1-32 based on how we rate them according to Infogol's expected goals (xG) model with each team awarded a percentage chance of lifting the trophy.

From Brazil to Saudi Arabia, no matter who you draw at least you'll be armed with the knowledge of exactly what your chance of winning is.

You can download our sweepstake kit as a PDF for FREE below!
