Guess the Attendance competition preview

On its way

By Mystic Malmo

The rules are very simple, as summarised below: 







· Only Headingley games are considered

· Guesses must be made no later than 20 minutes before kick-off time

· The guess nearest to the official attendance figure will receive three points, second closest two and third-closest one point. It doesn’t matter if you are higher or lower

· If anyone gets the exact number then an Almo bonus of 2 points will be awarded, i.e. the winner will receive 5 points

· Please do not duplicate a previously posted number: if necessary priority will be given to the earlier poster

· If a decider is required at the end of the season, the closest in the last match will be the winner

A few tips:

· You can use the date of a famous landmark (e.g. your house construction date) for inspiration

· Famous dates from history can be amusing

· Do not get too concerned about any discrepancies between the official attendance given and the number of people you count in the actual crowd

· Don’t take too much notice of any advice from Almo as he is usually nowhere near the top of the table
