The Collins Cup Fantasy Competition gives you the chance to predict Collins Cup matchups to be in with a shot at winning big prizes.
The Collins Cup is coming up this Saturday and as the excitement ratchets ever higher, you can get even closer to the action with the Collins Cup Fantasy Competition.
After the fun of the Tokyo tri fantasy game, which featured over 1,300 participants, the stakes are higher this time around. While the Collins Cup Fantasy Competition is completely free to play there’s a Grand Prize of an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the 2022 Collins Cup on the line – the trip of a lifetime for any triathlon fan.
Meanwhile, second-and third-place finishers will bag a TAG Heuer connected watch. There are also plenty of prizes to be won courtesy of Wahoo, the event’s Official Transition Partner, including a Wahoo KICKR Bike for fourth place, Wahoo KICKR Smart Trainers for fifth and sixth place and Wahoo ELEMNT RIVAL multisport watches for seventh to 10th place.
If that whets your appetite to give it a go, read on for how to get started with the Collins Cup Fantasy Competition.
Collins Cup Fantasy Competition – How To Play
The Collins Cup Fantasy Competition gets underway immediately after the Collins Cup opening ceremony on Wednesday 25 August. It’s here we’ll get to find out which athletes will be pitted against one another in all 12 of the race matchups – as well as getting a chance to see all the stars resplendent in their new race kit.
Once those all-important matchups have been decided in the Captain’s Match Draft Draw, the game is afoot! All you need to do is pick who you think will finish first, second and third in every matchup.
First place athletes are worth 300 points, second 200 points and third 100 points. There are also bonus points for the first two athletes across the line based on the time gap to their competitors.
For each correct guess, you’ll be awarded that athlete’s points. So, if you correctly predict a trifecta the points will really rack up in your favour! The more points you have at the end of the day, the higher you’ll be ranked – but can you make it into the top 10 to earn a prize?
Like the previous tri fantasy games, success at the Collins Cup Fantasy Competition will take all your athlete knowledge and a big slice of luck. While we can’t help with the latter, now is the time to brush up on everything you need to know about all the Collins Cup athletes through our PTO Stats site.
You’ll find a treasure trove of historical data and recent results as well as being able to view how athletes have fared against one another in the past using the Head-To-Head feature. So, jump in and take a deep dive into the stats to perfect your predictions.
The Collins Cup coverage gets underway at 12:30 CEST on Saturday. You can catch every second through live broadcasts in over 100 countries as well as on the Collins Cup website or the newly launched Collins Cup iOS/Android app. Head over to the Collins Cup broadcast information page to find out where to watch in your region.
