About Us

Like most great ideas (if we may be so bold) Predikta started off as a bit of banter between friends, but has quickly grown into the place to make your football predictions ahead of the weekend. What was once a humble spreadsheet of friends’ predictions is now the football prediction game that connects. Predikta analyses the resulting wisdom of the crowd to help players predict the outcome of upcoming matches. There’s plenty of banter to be had on the way too, so if you or your colleagues make a dodgy prediction, they can no longer hide with Predikta’s banter board and Judas Index

Who’s who at Predikta

The team of Predikta is a mix of data, digital and lovers of football who all enjoy a wager on a game now and again. We of course have our own office league in the Predikta game.
