In the context of design studies for future pp colliders, we present a set of predictions for average soft-QCD event properties for pp collisions at , 27, and 100 TeV. The current default Monash 2013 tune of the Pythia 8.2 event generator is used as the baseline for the extrapolations, with uncertainties evaluated via variations of cross-section parametrisations, PDFs, MPI energy-scaling parameters, and colour-reconnection modelling, subject to current LHC constraints. The observables included in the study are total and inelastic cross sections, inelastic average energy and track densities per unit pseudorapidity (inside ), average track , and jet cross sections for 50- and 100-GeV anti- jets with , using aMC@Nlo in conjunction with Pythia 8 for the latter.
