Introducing FanDuel's Free World Soccer Pick'em

The World Cup kicks off on Thursday, and FanDuel's new offering is unlike any free DFS game to date.

This week the world will turn its eyes to Russia, where the 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday with a Group A match between the host country and Saudi Arabia. And while the U.S. failed to qualify for the tournament this time around, there's still plenty of reason to watch. Because aside from the majesty and mystique of the World Cup's powerhouse teams and global stars, there's also the fact that you can get in on the action and win some cash on FanDuel.

We already broke down how scoring changes to FanDuel's core DFS soccer game should affect your strategy for daily slates during the World Cup.

But if you aren't as confident in your DFS skills when it comes to soccer, there's another way you can win big during the World Cup -- and it's absolutely free. FanDuel's new World Soccer Pick'em offering is easy to play, and you can win something every single day of the tournament. That's right, unlike FanDuel's free games in the past that were one-day events (think NBA All-Star Saturday Bingo, for example), World Soccer Pick'em has cash up for grabs every single day, for every single game.

How to Play

Playing World Soccer Pick'em is simple: just pick the team you think will win each game on each day (or you can predict a draw), and then predict the score, too. Just make sure your picks are in before the first match of the day starts (games will be open on FanDuel the night before), and you'll be eligible for the day's cash prizes.

Want the best shot at winning? We've got you covered with our Team Power Rankings, Stage Odds, Game Simulator and Betting Advice -- all of which will be updated throughout the World Cup. Plus, we've got tons more analysis of each group, individual teams, players to watch and more on our soccer page.


If you pick all the day's results (winners or draws) correctly in a given day, you'll win a voucher to an exclusive free DFS contest for only World Soccer Pick'em winners. If you pick the scores correctly in a given day, too, you'll split that day's jackpot. (The jackpot on the opening day of the tournament is $3,000.)

It costs nothing to enter, and you can compete for over $135,000 in total prizes throughout the 2018 World Cup. You can make your picks for the tournament's opening day right now -- and be sure to keep numberFire bookmarked throughout the World Cup for the most up-to-date analysis to help you make your picks every single day.
