If you’re new to our cup competitions, read on for an FAQ, offering all the details.
the Cup work?
The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own Fantasy Cup game.
Entrants who qualify for the first round will be randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores).
In the event of a tie, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.
When does it start?
The qualifying round for the Fantasy Football Scout Cup will take place in Gameweek 28, with the first round proper running in Gameweek 29.
Fantasy managers can enter their teams from now right up to 18:45 GMT on
Previous winners must enter with the same usernames listed above to gain their bye.
How do I enter?
Enter the open-to-all FFS Cup via the entry form here.
You will be sent a confirmation email to verify your entry and you’ll be asked to confirm your FPL team ID at the point of entry – please be sure to click the link to verify that your team is correct before confirming. If you FPL team is incorrectly entered, we cannot amend this at a later date.
Your entry is only completed once you have confirmed your FPL team ID as part of the process.
To check that you’re entered correctly, please scan the list of entries.
How do I find my FPL team ID?
Your FPL ID is your unique ID for your FPL team. This is found via your Gameweek History page – the link to which is found in the right-hand menu under your FPL team strip. When you visit your Gameweek History you will see a number in the URL (as opposed to the XXX here: https://fantasy.premierleague.com/a/entry/XXX/history)
Place this 1-7 digit number, or your Gameweek History URL, in the FPL ID field on the entry form.
When will I find out if I’ve qualified?
Results from the Fantasy Football Scout Cup qualifying round will be published shortly after February 26 and then weekly, after the completion of each Gameweek, from that point on.

Both these cup competitions will be played out according to the following proposed Gameweek schedule, though this could be subject to change.

Do I have to enter if I’m a previous winner?
Yes, because your FPL team ID will have changed so we will need to record your entry again. As a previous winner, you will be given a bye to the first round proper.
Do I need to be registered with Fantasy Football Scout?
We ask you to supply a Fantasy Football Scout username so we can feature you, as a member of our community, in any articles associated with the tournament.
Ideally, you will already have a username with us, but this is not essential to enter.
You must, however, supply a username for the purpose of the tournament so you can be identified in articles.
You must not change this username throughout the course of the tournament. Should you do so without permission, should you enter multiple teams, or if your FFS account comes under moderation for any reason, we reserve the right to remove you from a tournament at any stage.
