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 sportsful 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.
PronoContest's goals and values
Because PronoContest is just a game and must remain a game.
While playing on PronoContest, nobody puts its financial situation at stake.
Like in any other competition, what is important is to win. Anyone who has ever heard the contrary after a match has probably lost it.
Anyone producing injuring comments or with an abusive behaviour exposes himself to a ban without notice.

In order to run, PronoContest is powered by a variety of Open Source projects. The main of them are:
