FPA Leagues

What is FPA?
The FPA is a collection of amateur football fans forecasting or 'predicting' games from English Premier League, English Championship, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa league, English FA Cup, English League Cup and a team local to where the FPA began, Gillingham FC, in Kent, England (English League One).

It began with one league for a trial period in 1979-1980, before any predicting or 'tipping' leagues existed, to our knowledge. So it is possibly the oldest and longest running football predictions competition in Britain, and possibly the world.

Over the years it has developed into four main leagues - three domestic and one UEFA; four cup competitions; and the inclusion of professional forecasters from the world of newspaper pools tipsters and TV football pundits. Since its start, many have tried to win the predictions leagues and cups, with the best part of one hundred having taken part at one time or another.

When we started back then there was no Internet; now, everyone it seems is an online tipster. You can get online predictions from football betting sites, join predictions competitions for money or just for fun, and use 'Tipping' forecasts or software promising to win you much on football betting. But apart from the fact we at FPA have been doing it longer than anyone else, year in year out our best have been better than all the rest. We consistently beat the professional newspaper pundits; we have beaten prediction software; online tipsters; and the BBC's own expert Mark 'Lawro' Lawrensen. Why? We don't have a magic formula, but we do know and love football - and we know how to predict successfully.

We may be able to provide a predictions service from our best predictors of English Premier League, English domestic cups and UEFA Champions and Europa League games. This is something we are looking into. Please see the Contact page.

Any score for Overall, Homes and Aways (1-2-X) over 50% means of course we are getting more than 1 in every 2 predictions correct. For Draws, anything above 33.33% means of course we are getting more than 1 in every 3 predictions correct. These are 'bench mark' success rates to aim for and are indicators as to how well a predictor is performing, especially the Professional tipsters who are getting paid for it.
