A Template Four Years In The Making
It's that time again when the whole world goes crazy following their favorite football players and teams. In honor of this festive time TheSpreadsheetGuru has teamed up with Spreadsheet1 to provide everyone with an awesome FIFA World Cup Tournament spreadsheet. This Excel spreadsheet will allow you to fill in your predictions and keep track of the outcomes of the FIFA games. Spreadsheet1 did an awesome job with the design of this template and has definitely given me a few ideas to incorporate into my own projects.
A Preview Of The Template
You can click on each Group to view the matches and enter in your predicted scores. The template automatically calculates the winners of each group and moves them on to the Knockout Stage!
Inside the Knockout section, put your football knowledge to the test and make your final predictions on who will be victorious and bring home the FIFA Word Cup Trophy!
