The world of online sports prediction sites is growing in South Africa and arguably the ultimate home-grown platform is Superbru.com.
Superbru started out in Cape Town some 16 years ago as a pen-and-paper rugby prediction game between housemates and has now turned into a multi-national company based out of the UK, and with 1.6 million players.
The site is a blend of fantasy leagues and sports predictions and boasts a wide range of sporting activities, including soccer.
Superbru boasts a vast soccer section including South African Premier League, English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and more. The site also hosts prediction competitions for a host of other tournaments such as World Cup action, Copa America, Women’s World Cup and European under 21 Championship.
Superbru boasts one of the most comprehensive football services in the country.

This is not a betting site and there is no opportunity to win cash or prizes, rather it is a fantasy league that a subscriber can join. The subscriber can then get friends to join and play in a closed league or become part of a bigger database and play in a league with people they don’t know.
The player will earn one point for a correct prediction, 1.5 points for a formulated ‘close’ result and three points for an exact predicted outcome.
According to the site, superbru is a free predictor and fantasy sports game and covers 80 tournaments a year (all sports). There are a clutch of soccer leagues and tourneys to join.
One of their slogans explains the mission of the site, “Run by sports fans by sports fans”.
Players can take part on the website, mobi site or app.
The subscriber can play in 10 leagues at once and has to pay a subscription service. The business model of superbru is through these subscriptions and advertising.
