What is Sky Sports Six A Side?

For those who don’t know about the six a side game, it’s a very simple game which gives you the chance to win £5000 every week. The aim of the game is to pick six players you think will be the highest scoring players that week. Points are judged on all kind of things including goals, clean sheets, saves, shots on target, successful passes and much more.

Each week there will be four players you have to pick from, these are called ‘Elite players’. Once you have selected your elite player, you can then pick the rest of your team from the rest of the squad. You then have to pick a power play, this is a time in the game you will receive double points before picking a golden goal time, which will be the minute used if there is a tie at the end.

If you at the end of the game are top of everyone else playing, you will have won £5000 for a game that is free to play. However, if you are joint at the top, it will go down to your golden goal. This can be very cruel to you as our tipster Dean Carr found out throughout the season, losing on just the golden goal.
