Are you a football fan? Do you want something fun to do on your free time or in the weekends when watching your favorite English clubs play, then Fantasy Premier League is here to make your premier league experience more fun.

The game allows you to compete with friends and other fans through creating leagues.

What is Fantasy Premier League

This is a game that makes you a fantasy manager of premier league players.

Fans are allowed to manage a team of players they have selected from the 20 premier league clubs. To join, just visit the FPL website at fantasy.premierleague.com and register for an account.

Each player has a price tag and you are awarded a limited budget of £100 million for the 15-man squad you are going to manage.

Awarding of points

Players are awarded points based on their clean sheets, goals, saves, and assists.

The starting eleven from your squad are awarded points and in case a player in the starting squad does not play then the player is automatically replaced by the first player on the bench.

You also earn double points from the player you selected as your game week captain.

If your selected captain does not play then the vice captain scores double for you.

Building and selecting a squad

You are only allowed to select a maximum of three players from a particular team. The squad selected consists of two goalkeepers, three forwards, five midfielders and five defenders.

You can choose a formation that best fits you. such formations include 3-5-2, 4-3-3, 5-3-2 and many more football formations.

The deadline for selecting a squad is always 90 minutes to kick off of the first game in a game week.

Making transfers

Transfers made before the league starts in August 2021 are not limited.

After the league starts you will only be given one transfer free for each game week.

If you do not use your free transfer the following game week there will be two free transfers but if you do not use them after that they will disappear and start again.

Points will be used if you make more transfers than the free transfer given and each will attract a 4-point deduction.

Chips

These help you enhance the performance of your team especially during double game-weeks or blank gameweeks. The chips include the following;

Wildcard – This chip allows you to completely change all the players in your team and does not deduct any of your points. You get two wildcards in a season.
Triple Captain – When you activate this chip your captain for that game week will get triple the total points he has.
Bench Boost – It allows you to earn extra points from the players in the bench. You can only use it once in a season.
Free Hit – Allows you to change your team for one game week after which it reverts to the original team.
