Brief history


Did you know? The ancestor of PronoContest is an Excel workbook. It has been designed in 2 days while a friend in need gave a call in June 2014. Just in time for the FIFA World Cup. At this moment, it already had the bases of what would become the most sports predictions contest website of the internet.
Arguing that a web app would bring much more to the organization of a sports predictions contest, a first version is born in October 2015, for the Rugby World Cup.
