We’ve reached the semi-finals of our FFS Cup following the completion of Gameweek 35+ and £300-worth of prizes will be on the line over the next two Gameweeks.
The last four of this competition will take place in Gameweek 36+, the deadline for which is at 19:15 BST today.
The run of former winner Wild Rover came to an end in Gameweek 35+, with the one-time champion defeated 52-40 by Manisaspor.
Powell came out on top in his all-top 5k clash with graslauk, with his 88 points lifting him inside the top 500 in FPL.
Sharpey saw off Bencaraway 51-42 to reach the last four, while Joax2 climbed into the top 10,000 with a 60-54 victory over White Russian FC.
Three of our four semi-finalists are inside the top 10k, indeed.
Powell will now take on Sharpey for a place in the Gameweek 37+ final, with Mansiaspor going up against Joax2.
HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS WORK?
The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own cup game.
Entrants who qualify for the first round were 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 draw, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.
