It’s not like typical betting, when your bet loses your money is gone. Instead, players gain and lose value, your share price being affected by how well they have played. If your player hasn’t played great, you may find that his share value drops a few pence.
Buzz is a media scoring system used by Football Index, this is turned into a ‘competition’ which is run daily.
Football players earn buzz points throughout the day for the amount of media coverage they get.
The footballer to score the most points on that day, is crowned the buzz winner.
If you have the buzz winner as part of your portfolio, you are going to be paid out dividends! Bonus! The dividend payout is 5p per share held.
Buzz points are calculated in a certain way, it’s not random. Football Index gather the information from the top 25 football media companies, Sky Sports News etc.
Football Buzz is something that resets daily, so you have the chance for dividends daily.
Yes! Using the buzz to your advantage can earn you a nice additional bonus.
If you choose to obtain a portfolio of players which are loved by the media, you are in with a great chance of earning money by the buzz dividend feature. There are some players which the media just don’t stop talking about!
However, the main method for making a profit is to buy low, sell high.
There are almost 1,500 players on the Football Index market, the first team making up 200 players.
We can only buy shares in the 200 first team players.
Football Index customers can have their say in who enters the first team squad, with a weekly vote. With this, members can upvote and downvote squad members for promotion into the first team.
The top two players in the squad are promoted, with the bottom two players in the first team squad being relegated to the squad.
A player which has been promoted cannot be relegated for 8 weeks.
The way to make a guaranteed profit is to buy low and sell high.
Keep a keen eye on the media outlets, player form & player demand to be able to maximise your chance of success.
You may lose money, as player share prices can go down, aswell as up.
In some instances you may have to sell a share for less than you pay for it, if the player gets injured etc.
I recommend that you initially avoid players near the relegation zone, as this is where you may make a loss.
On the flip side, the relegation zone is a risky area where there is a great deal of profit to be made.
Share prices are often low around the relegation zone, due to uncertainty in the market. If you snap up a player in the relegation zone and he then starts to play well, the share price will rocket up!
