And it’s live! FanTeam The one-season £ 1million Premier League fantasy game – think a pay-entry FPL with huge cash prizes – has relaunched for the new season.
It’s true: there is a guaranteed prize pool of one million pounds in this Fantasy tournament, with £ 200,000 go to the winner.
There is no catch here, only an entry fee of € 20 – a payout that you will just make up for by finishing in the top 5,000.
There’s also a £ 25,000 prize pool for the 10 users with the highest Gameweek scores, with £ 10,000 set aside for exclusive freerolls.
With a maximum of 60,000 entries allowed (that’s less than 1% of the competition you’ll face in the Fantasy Premier League each year), the odds are good for those who know their stuff.
The first pre-registration offer is already gone, but the 501 to 1000 teams that register get a FREE Ticket £ 9 / € 10 FanTeam’s Euro 2020 Final Fantasy Contest, which has a guaranteed prize pool of € 50,000.
REACTION OF THE INITIAL PRICE LIST
The cheaper availability of Sadio Mane (£ 10.0m) and Roberto Firmino (£ 7.5million) really stands out, for fantasy managers looking for a discounted alternative to Mohamed salah (£ 12.5million).
The Egyptian is the most expensive player in the game, half a million more expensive than the two Bruno Fernandes (£ 12.0 million) and Harry kane (£ 12.0 million).
A number of other premium choices are available at more attractive prices than they are in FPL, with Rahim sterling (£ 10.0m) and Jamie Vardy (£ 9.5million) among those marked down.
The tastes of Lucas Digne (£ 5.5 million), Wesley fofana (£ 4.5 million) and Robert sanchez (£ 4.5million) are all priced in the same generous installments as they are in FPL.
We’ll be back in the coming weeks with a series of articles on FanTeam’s £ 1million cash game, digging deeper into player prizes in each position.
WHAT ARE THE SIMILAR AND DIFFERENCES WITH FPL?
Here’s the good news: Anyone with Fantasy Premier League experience should be able to FanTeam’s game no problem.
The rules, scoring and prices are very similar; click on the image above for a full breakdown.
It’s basically FPL but with huge cash prizes. As paid mini-leagues are now strongly discouraged by the Premier League, the FanTeam game offers Fantasy managers a legitimate opportunity to earn money from their management expertise.
As in FPL, the managers make up a 15-player squad that includes two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.
A maximum of three players from the same Premier League team can be selected, with the initial team budget set at 100.0m.
A starting XI is then selected for each week of play from this team of 15.
One free transfer is allowed every Gameweek, with each additional transfer costing minus four points. Managers can advance a Gameweek transfer but can never have more than two free transfers in their locker.
FanTeam managers have two Wildcards to use, one for each half of the season. Unlimited free transfers can be used when the Wildcard is deployed and also before Gameweek 1.
A captain (and vice-captain) must be appointed each week; this player will score double points if he receives the armband.
Does everything sound very familiar to you? That’s because the two games are largely the same – although there are a handful of differences to watch out for.
KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
- Player prices can rise and fall depending on the form and movement of the transfer in the game, but unlike FPL, a player’s “sell price” is the same as their “buy price”.
- Other than the aforementioned two Wildcards, there are no tokens in Fan team.
- More than one team is allowed per person, each entry costing £ 20.
HOW DO PLAYERS SCORE POINTS?
Seasoned FPL managers should have no problem adjusting to Fan team and leading a team with its familiar scoring system, pictured above.
KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
- There is no bonus point system, which is replaced by plus / minus points (+ 0.3 / -0.3) if a team wins / loses during the time a player is on the pitch.
- Goalkeepers get 0.5 point for each save made, unlike the point awarded in FPL for three save increments.
- Committing a fault which leads to a goal from a free kick or a converted penalty is penalized by minus two points.
- Midfielders and forwards get an extra point for completing the full game.
- Shots on target that do not end in rewarded goals (+0.4 for midfielders and attackers, +0.6 for defenders)
