What about fixing it at 8 tickets per person, at a set cost say £10 for example, that leaves room for 62 entrants, if not enough interest open up remaining tickets to those who have already purchased, as I'm sure some would buy more.
Then just split prize money between the 8 tickets which have the top two teams in each group.
Then you could do another sweep for the last 16, and split prizes between the semi finalists and finalists, or could go one further and give quarter finalists a cut also.
Or up the entry for the initial sweep, and have the prizes continue into the latter stages.
Yes sounds doable as well cheers.
Along those lines... another option is just to do a regular sweepstake, one team per entry picked randomly, then we just need a multiple of 32 people to enter, so 32/64/96  so if 96 people entered, each team would go to 3 people and the prize would be split between them if that team won.

Ok chaps, have updated the first post and set up the entry subscription, you can access it at the normal place.
I set it up as £5 per ticket, with £5/10/15/20/25 options (ie you can buy 1/2/3/4/5 tickets at a time). As in first post, there's no limit to the number of tickets we can sell but we need a multiple of 32 to be sold to make it work, hopefully that will go OK, will probably stop the subscription when it gets to a 'round' number of tickets sold... see how the tickets sell anyway.
There are 3 lots of prizes  overall winner, overall runner up and also semi final runner up (so the semi final runner up prize will be split two ways because there'll be 2 teams that go out at the semi final stage). Hope that sounds OK, I'm open to suggestions if there's a better idea for the prize splits but I think 3 lots of prizes should be OK (any more and it dilutes the size of the prize pots).
Also hope the first post makes sense re prizes  basically the prize pot will be split however many ways depending on how many tickets we sell  ie if we sell 96 tickets, that's 3 'batches' of tickets (there are 32 teams taking part), so each of the prizes would be split 3 ways.
Finally there is a chance that someone who buys more than one ticket will get the same team more than once, unfortunately there's no way to avoid that really without it getting complicated... in the event it might not happen at all (prize goes to whoever can tell me what the chances are of it happening!!! )... still if you get the winning team twice I don't think you'll complain too much and it is all random anyway so ... should be OK hopefully.
Have at it!
PS I will wait until the end to take any remaining tickets so we can close the subscription on a multiple of 32 easily.
