theHunter: Classic Football Jamboree 2018
Posted: June 13th, 2018, 9:23 am
It is that time again, the 2018 FIFA World Cup is upon us and that means it is time for our very own Football Jamboree! This year we have two competitions for everyone to participate in, the 'Main Event' and 'The Football Jamboree League'.
Main Event Details
If you have competed in any of the last Jamboree's, you will know what to expect, if you haven't competed before, here is a nice run down of how it all works!
The Jamboree runs from the 14th of June to the 15th of July. All you have to do is purchase the pants from the team or teams you think might win the FIFA World Cup, if you own the pants that represent the overall winning team of the FIFA World Cup, you yourself win some sweet prizes. At the start of the event, the pants are heavily discounted and as the World cup progresses the discount is reduced, the finals being the most expensive time to purchase the pants. Here is a nice little image that will show you how the pants are going to be priced from the start of the event, to the end. (Discount does not kick in till early tomorrow morning)
This year there are 32 teams in the World Cup and all the corresponding pants can be found in theHunter Store, it is worth noting that after the event is over, these pants will never be available for purchase again. Make sure you purchase your pants before the whistle is blown to start the final match, because as soon as the final match has started, the pants will no longer be available for purchase.
So what can I win?
Like the previous Football Jamboree's, there is a Golden Gun up for grabs and this year it is none other than the glorious 10 GA Lever Action Shotgun, look at that amazing damascus barrel!
Please note: The "Golden 10 GA" is an exclusive version of our 10 GA Lever Action Shotgun. It will never be available for purchase in theHunter Store, and it is only possible to obtain it by buying the corresponding pants of the winning team. It shares its skills with the 10 GA Lever Action Shotgun, but has no achievements.
As well as the 'Golden 10 GA' there are Gold, Silver and Bronze Trophies up for grabs:
So just to recap this is what the prize allocation looks like:
1st place: 'Golden Gun' and a Gold Trophy
2nd Place: Silver Trophy
3rd Place: Bronze Trophy
As previously mentioned, there are 32 teams this year in the FIFA World Cup. In the image below you can see all the teams and which groups they are in, which should help you pick some winners!
This will be updated daily throughout the event with points etc, but any game progress from the weekend will be updated first thing Monday morning.
The next scoreboard that will start to be populated after the group stage is over, which covers everything from the 'Round of 16' to 'The Finals', is this one.
But wait...there is more!
The Football Jamboree League
What better way to celebrate a world cup, than to have our own localized world tour!?
This year we have competitions that are reserve specific and so are the trophies:
In total there are 8 different competitions, each competition runs for 4 days and the the objective is to shoot one of every animal on the specific reserve, your highest combined score is your entry criteria. The top 4 Hunters from each reserve will receive a trophy and em$. The trophies shown above are the 'Gold' ones, but there are also silver, bronze and hematite for the respective placings.

It is a lot of information to take in, so make sure you have a good read. But as per usual I am more than happy to clear anything up for you Guys and Gals.
This is going to be great fun, I want to know what teams you are supporting and which pants you will be purchasing? I think I am going to pick 10 and stick to them
