Points scoring

On any day where there is a fixture in any of the eligible competitions, we rank all the participating footballers according to our Match Day scoring table.

Positional tiering

Footballer positions are classified using Opta season data and will not update in game if a player moves position or plays out of position during a match. 

Deadlines

Traders have to purchase Shares before 16:00* to be eligible to win Match Day Dividends on that day.

We pay out Dividends to the players at the top of the Match Day Rankings between 09:00am and 11:00am the following morning.

*All times mentioned are London times.

1.25 Multiplier

Playing in Champions League and Europa League matches will multiply player scores by 1.25 for games in those tournaments.

Tiebreak

In the event that two footballers score equal points totals on a Match Day, the youngest player will win the Dividends.

Football Index
Media Dividends

In the modern game, there’s almost as much interest in what a player does off the field as what he does on it. That’s why Media Dividends are such a crucial consideration for Traders on the Football Index.

Our proprietary daily monitor of all UK online football news drives a daily score published in list form.

Footballers with mentions get points - and the players with the highest points totals get into the Media Rankings. On non-Match Days, the top three win Dividends, while the top one wins on days where games are played.

Media Rankings are based on Media Score each day at 00:00:00.

We take news headlines from 20 trusted media sources and scan them for player names.

The news feeds we monitor are:
Talksport, UEFA, The FA, ESPN, FIFA, Football League, Daily Mail, Daily Star, The Times, Telegraph, Independent, Express, Guardian, Metro, Daily Mirror, BBC, Football365, Goal.com, Huffington Post and Sky Sports.

On eligible match days, there’s one Media Dividend winner.

When there are no eligible matches, there are three winners:

3rd

Deadlines

Football Index pays out Media Dividends  on Shares bought before a daily deadline of 16:00. Winnings are paid out between 09:00am and 11:00am on the day after the Media Dividends were won. To win, you’ll need to hold the footballer until you’ve been credited with your Media Dividends.

Media Winner

The footballer with the highest score each day by 23:59:59pm wins Media Dividends on that day.

Tiebreak

If there’s a points tie, the player with the latest unique story will be ranked higher. We reserve the right to remove stories attributed to a footballer that are not related to footballing events or that refer to another similarly named but incorrect person.

Match Day Extra

Each week, we’ll take the top six performances from each position (two for GK) that didn’t win a Match Day Dividend and pay a Match Day Extra Dividend for every Share you own in those footballers. That means we will be paying out on 20 extra performances each week.

All existing Shares in your Portfolio that you hold until the end of that week are eligible. You will need to own Shares in those footballers before the kick off of their qualifying performance and hold them until the end of that week (Thursday 23:59:59).

Weeks run from Friday 00:00:01 London time to Thursday 23:59:59 London time, with payout each Friday. Match Day Extra Dividends are paid out in line with Match Day Dividend payouts to allow for Opta revisions.
