The FREE footy tipping competition kicks off on 26 February 2016 and all travel industry staff are invited to register and test their predictive skills with amazing prizes to be won each week. The competition will close on 02 October 2016.
To be eligible to enter the footy tipping competition you must be 18 years of age and over and employed within the Australian travel industry. Tippers must still be working within the industry at the end of the footy season to be eligible to win prizes.

Footy tippers who register to compete online will receive two emails each week– the first one reminding tippers to submit their tips and the second email announcing the weekly winners with a link to the points ladder.
The competition ladder is sorted by score, then alphabetically by name.
