World Cup 2022 Challenge online!

For the last 16 years, with every big football tournament (World Cup and Euro Cup), we've launched an Oracle APEX app where you can predict the scores of the games. You can find this year's app at


Many people do a challenge with their friends or company, for fun, for money... Instead of using a custom-made Excel, use of email, or use of paper, you can use the World Cup 2022 Challenge site to track who's in the lead.
  • You can enter the scores of every game and see how well your predictions compare to others (overall).
  • You can create a group e.g. your company, or a team, etc and see how well you play within your group.
  • You can see statistics of predictions

16 years ago, I built a site to promote the use of Oracle APEX. People loved it, so I decided to update the site with every new release of APEX. You can find some more history and screenshots of how the app looked here

Oracle APEX features

When upgrading to the new Oracle APEX version, the Advisor and Upgrade assistant were run. This year the site runs on Oracle APEX 22.1, Universal theme got refreshed, the site is more mobile friendly and some components like the calendar where updated. Social authentication was re-enabled, so you can sign-up and log in with Email, Facebook or Google.

Thanks to Kevin and Theo who did most of the work!

Go and play!

Head  to the site/app and start challenging your friends ðŸ˜€
