The Football League have teamed up with the Texaco brand, the Official Motor Fuel Partner to The Football League Championship, to launch a brand new game for fans - Texaco Football Predictor!

Texaco Football Predictor is the Official Predictor Game for the npower Championship and is free to play. It provides fans with the opportunity to show their knowledge by predicting the weekly results of all npower Championship games over the remaining 33 match days of the 2011/12 season, starting with matches played on Saturday October 29th 2011.

Once registered with Texaco Football Predictor, players will compete against fans from across the npower Championship for a monthly prize pool of £1,000 worth of prizes, with an end-of-season prize pool of £5,000 worth of prizes. Unlike many other football predictor games, fans will also be able to set up private leagues to challenge their friends and invite game play through their individual Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Stuart Morgan, Head of Partnerships at The Football League said: "After the success of Fantasy Football over the last four seasons, we are excited to launch this brand new product with Texaco.

"The Football Predictor provides a further platform for Texaco to engage with millions of Football League fans and gives those supporters another fun, competitive way of enjoying exciting Championship football."

Stuart McBride, Brand Specialist for the Texaco brand commented: "All fans like to discuss and predict match outcomes over the course of the season, even if it's just for bragging rights. Texaco Football Predictor is quick and easy to play and we hope will appeal to all fans whether competing for monthly prizes or against friends in private leagues. We think it will sit nicely alongside our other online game for football fans, Texaco Fantasy Football.
