Welcome to the World Cup of Sportspeople! With the Women's Football World Cup in full swing just finished and the Men's World Cup being a resounding success last year, we'll be following on with a tournament, not of countries, but of the sports-men and women themselves. This contest is designed to select the greatest sportspeople from each continent through a number of rounds, selecting the best of the best, and pitting them together to show who we really think is the best sportsperson of them all!

We've reached the Intercontinental Playoffs! So far 90 players have reached the Final, however there are still 10 spots up for grabs. These will be battled for by the 48 sportspeople who have been awarded a playoff spot, who have been split evenly into two groups of 24.

- You can vote for up to 15 sportspeople, but you must vote for at least 5.
- You must rank your votes in order of preference, either by numbering or by the standard Buzzjack +15, +14 ... +1 (Or down to however many you vote for)
- You must vote for sportspeople from at least three different sports
- Each sportsperson has been given a short description of their major achievements to make it easier for you to make up your mind.
- The five sportspeople with the most votes in each group will advance to the Final. For everyone else, it's the end of the road.
