Twitter Festive 50 World Cup

Twitter Festive 50 World Cup

Postby trixie3 on Sat Aug 27, 2016 2:26 pm

Hello. Long time no post. I should have posted this last week but I'm a bit rubbish...

I'm running a Festive 50 World Cup on Twitter.

The cup pits the songs from the top 5s from 1982-2004 charts including the millennium all-time chart against each other in a series of 4-song polls. 120 songs and 10 days of voting.

Fanclub sadly only have one song, Star Sign, in the tournament. But the goods news is that they already made it through to Round 2 (like I say I really should have posted this in advance!)

Day 3 polls are still open til around 8pm (GMT) tonight.

Fanclub will be up again for the round 2 vote on Monday (29th). The poll will be posted around 2130 and be open for 24 hours.

To get involved search for the hashtag #Festive50WorldCup switch to Live mode and look for the polls.

Round 1 of the #Festive50WorldCup finishes today and the first 7 round 2 polls will be posted around 2130 (GMT).

Star Sign has been drawn in poll 5 against The Smiths-How Soon Is Now, The Clash-White Man in Hammersmith Palais and The Cocteau Twins-Pearly Dewdrops Drops. A *very* tough group.

The top 2 from each group qualify to the quarter finals and two more 3rd placed from the 15 round 2 polls will also qualify.

If you want to see the boys through to the quarter finals, you know what to do...

The round 2 polls are up now and they're open until 2100 (GMT) Tuesday night.
Fanclub are currently in 3rd place out of the four.
Obviously since I'm running the thing, I'm impartial and wouldn't dream of trying to influence a result but no harm in asking you all to cast your vote!

4 hours left to vote. Star Sign still in 3rd so won't make it to the quarter finals unless they get some more votes. It's up to you kids!

Thanks, G :)

Anyone who looked in on the poll, do please continue to vote in the quarters, semis and final even though star sign didn't make it through.

And in other news, someone else is only running a TEENAGE FANCLUB TWITTER WORLD CUP next. They're going to start it on 9th September - Here launch day.

I'll post again when I have more details in case people want to get involved in that one :)
