The Champions League returns this evening – and so does the world’s largest Fantasy tournament covering Europe’s footballing elite.
FanTeam‘s Champions League Fantasy tournament offers a guaranteed €100,000 prize pot, with the winner taking home €20,000.
Pay-outs extend all the way through the top 600, and there are plenty of weekly prizes on offer.
Latecomers to the game are in luck too.
FanTeam is currently offering a special bundle for new users, so late registrations will receive an additional Weekly Monster ticket worth €20.
That, in effect, means you’ll get €45 worth of value for just €25.
The advantages of joining now don’t end there either. Late registration opens up new in-game strategies, as managers can now optimise their picks across Gameweeks 2-6.
If you feel like trying out Daily Fantasy, but are not in the mood for an event that covers the entire group stage – tomorrow’s fixtures will also have two unique events to add even greater value, with FanTeam offering Early and Late games across three different buy-in options (1,10, 5,50 and 22,00) and excellent prize pools of up to 7.000€. Those can be found in the FanTeam Lobby.
FanTeam‘s Champions League event is very similar to Fantasy Premier League (FPL).
There’s the same 100m transfer budget, a 15-man squad and the standard three-player maximum from each team.
And the scoring system, with a few slight tweaks, is virtually identical, making it nice and easy to pick up and play.
Key differences only add to the experience.
Each Gameweek deadline is just ten seconds before the first kick-off, so there’s plenty of time to tweak your team after the teamsheets are announced.
And although you get two free transfers every Gameweek, you can roll them over to a maximum of four – if you’ve got the nerve and the patience.
FanTeam’s €100,000 Champions League Event runs for the six rounds of the tournament’s group stages, with €500 going to each Gameweek’s best manager and €1,000 up for grabs for the highest Gameweek score of the competition.
All that for an entry fee of just €25, with a maximum of 20 teams allowed per user.

Gameweek 2’s first matches kick off at 17.55 GMT this evening.
Here are some key players worth considering.
In attack, Sergio Aguero (10.4m) could make hay at home to Dinamo Zagreb.
The Manchester City star was rested at the weekend, playing just 24 minutes of the 3-1 win at Everton.
So he should be very fresh to face a Zagreb side that are winless in their last 15 Champions League away matches (D2 L13), losing each of the last 12.
In midfield, Philippe Coutinho (9.0m) has the form to be the star of the show in one of Gameweek 2’s major encounters – Tottenham Hotspur v Bayern Munich.
The Brazilian has scored and assisted in back-to-back Bundesliga games and he’s always enjoyed facing Spurs, scoring three and setting up a further two in 12 appearances against the north Londoners.
At the back, Nacho (5.0m) should be a good value way into the Real Madrid defence.
He’s only in the team because of injuries to key assets on the left-hand side of Los Blancos’ backline, but he was superb in the weekend’s 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid, both in defence and attack.
