EPL Fantasy: A Guide to the Ultimate Football Game

EPL fantasy is a game that allows you to create your own team of football players from the English Premier League (EPL) and compete with other managers around the world. You can play for free and win great prizes, as well as have fun and test your football knowledge.

How does it work?

  • To start playing, you need to register your team on the official EPL fantasy website or app. You will have a budget of £100 million to spend on 15 players from the EPL. You can choose any formation, as long as you have one goalkeeper, at least three defenders, at least two midfielders, and at least one forward.
  • You can create and join up to 30 private leagues with your friends, family, colleagues, or online communities. You can play in classic leagues, where the total points of your team decide the rankings, or in head-to-head leagues, where you face another manager each gameweek and earn points for winning or drawing.
  • Every gameweek, you need to select 11 players from your squad to be your starting lineup, and one of them to be your captain. Your captain will score double points for you. You can also choose four players to be on your bench, who will replace any of your starters who do not play in real life.
  • Your team will score points based on the performance of your players in real life matches. For example, you will get points for goals, assists, clean sheets, saves, tackles, passes, and more. You will also lose points for conceding goals, missing penalties, getting yellow or red cards, and more. You can see the full scoring system on the website or app.
  • You can make transfers to change your squad throughout the season. You get one free transfer every gameweek, and you can carry over one unused transfer to the next gameweek. However, you can never have more than two free transfers at a time. If you want to make more than one transfer in a gameweek, you will have to pay a penalty of four points for each extra transfer.
  • You also have four chips that you can use once per season to boost your team. They are:
    • Wildcard: This allows you to change your entire squad without losing any points. You can use this twice per season, once in the first half and once in the second half.
    • Triple Captain: This gives your captain triple points instead of double points for one gameweek.
    • Bench Boost: This adds the points of your bench players to your total score for one gameweek.
    • Free Hit: This lets you change your squad for one gameweek only, and then revert back to your original squad for the next gameweek.
  • The game runs for 38 gameweeks, which correspond to the 38 rounds of matches in the EPL season. The team with the most points at the end of the season wins the game. You can also win prizes for being the best manager in a gameweek, a month, or a season, as well as for beating certain milestones or challenges. You can see the full list of prizes on the website¹ or app.

EPL fantasy is a game that combines fun, learning, and competition, and is suitable for anyone who loves football and the EPL. Whether you are a casual fan or a hardcore supporter, a beginner or a veteran, a solo player or a social butterfly, you can find your place and your style in EPL fantasy. So what are you waiting for?
