Rules

All seems pretty easy and straightforward – however, here’s the catch.

PREMIER LEAGUE - LMO

  1. Once you have picked a team for the week you will NOT be able to re-select them in any of the forthcoming rounds. For example, if you pick Man Utd in Round 1 and Man Utd do indeed win – you will be successfully through to Round 2 – however, you will NOT be able to select Man Utd again in ANY of the subsequent rounds. Therefore, your next selection in Round 2 will have to come from the remaining 19 Premiership teams. The competition continues each week with players dropping by the way side eventually leaving the last man / woman as the winner.
  2. In the event of a tie – i.e. the last two (or more) players still alive ALL go out in the same Round then ALL players are declared winners.
  3. In the unlikely event that we still have more than one player left after 20 rounds (i.e. each remaining entrant has selected all 20 premiership teams successfully) – all surviving entrants will be declared winners.
  4. In the very unlikely event that a Premiership fixture gets postponed or abandoned, the result of that fixture will be treated as a DRAW (irrespective of any score line at the time of abandonment) unless the fixture is completed within 60 hours of the last kick off time for that Round’s scheduled fixtures. If the rescheduled fixture is completed within the 60 hour time limit the result of the rescheduled match stands – However - if over 50% of the fixtures (6 or more) in any one Round are postponed/ abandoned then the Round will be deemed void. Each player’s selection made in the void Round will become available to them for reselection with immediate effect.
  5. Only full weekend Premiership fixture schedules will be used for this challenge.
  6. Any players left in the competition after the final weekend of the 2019/2020 Premiership season will be declared winners.
  7. If any club should go out of business before the end of the 2019/2020 season the result for that particular round will be classed as a DRAW therefore anyone having selected either team in that round will be knocked out of the challenge. [Note under point 5 a full weekend Premiership fixture schedule currently is 10 matches. If one team was to go out of business then 9 matches would represent a full weekend Premiership fixture schedule]
  8. A timely submission each week is required. Failure to submit in a particular game week will be classified as a non submission, hence elimination. The deadline for final nominations is 1 hour before the kick off of the first game for that particular Game Week. If everyone is elimintaed in a particular Game Week, any non submissions for that Game Week will also be declared a winner.
  9. Last Man Out (LMO) Ltd reserves the right to amend these rules at anytime. Any change will be effective immediately and binding once notificiations have been posted on the website. Your continued use of the web site will constitute acceptance of the rules.
