How to play UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football – a beginner’s guide


The group stage of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League (UCL) campaign gets underway just after the October international break – and the official Fantasy game for the competition is live.

Unlimited transfers are allowed before play starts, so you can begin tinkering with your teams now.

The free-to-play game comes with the usual array of prizes, from UEFA Champions League final tickets to the new Playstation 5.

We’ll be bringing you more content on this game than ever before, with position-by-position guides over the next fortnight and regular articles to follow when the action commences.

Liverpool, Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs are among the 32 teams involved in this year’s tournament, with the six group stage matchdays all taking place before Christmas and the knockout rounds starting next February.

In this introductory piece, we’ll talk you through the basics of the game.

BRIEF RULES

To summarise the game in one sentence: UCL Fantasy managers get €100m to spend on a squad of 15 players, who earn points based on their on-field performances in the Champions League.

Anyone who has played Fantasy Premier League will have no trouble in picking the game up, as many of the rules are exactly the same or very similar:

  • An initial budget of €100m (which rises to €105m from the last 16 onwards)
  • Pick a squad of 15 players
  • No more than three players from each club (that threshold rises once the knockout stages begin)
  • Select a starting XI in a valid formation for every ‘matchday’ (the UCL equivalent of a ‘Gameweek’, which incorporates both the Tuesday and Wednesday fixtures)
  • Select a captain who earns double points
  • Make free transfers between matchdays

Those are the fundamentals but there are one or two quirks of the game that require a bit of explaining, which we will cover below.

SUBSTITUTIONS

If you prefer the hands-off approach to Fantasy management, auto-subs occur if any of your starting XI fail to feature and there is a playing substitute on your bench – providing that player doesn’t break the formation rules (a minimum of three defenders, two midfielders and one forward).

Where UCL Fantasy differs is that it also gives managers the chance to make manual substitutions instead.

After all matches on a single day (eg Tuesday) have finished and before the next matches within that matchday kick off (eg Wednesday), UCL Fantasy managers can:

  • Replace a maximum of four players (unless they have been sent off), with any of their substitutes whose teams are yet to play within the matchday.
  • Change their captain to another player from their squad whose team is yet to play. The original captain’s double points will be lost and the new captain’s score for that matchday will be doubled.

As an example, say you have selected Mason Greenwood (€7.5m) for Manchester United’s matchday 1 clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday 20 October.

If the United midfielder fails to feature or returns a middling score of, say, two points, you can then replace him with one of your substitutes who is in action on Wednesday 21 October.

TRANSFERS

As we mentioned earlier, free transfers are allowed between matchdays.

Like in Fantasy Premier League, UCL Fantasy managers can roll a maximum of one free transfer – although only in the group stage.

For every transaction you make beyond your quota of free transfers, you’ll take a hit of four points.

The below table details how many moves are allowed at each stage of the competition:

PhaseNumber of free transfers
Before the group stage beginsUnlimited
Matchday 1–62 per matchday
Between Matchday 6 and round of 16 1st legUnlimited
Before round of 16 2nd leg3
Before quarter-final 1st leg5
Before quarter-final 2nd leg3
Before semi-final 1st leg5
Before semi-final 2nd leg3
Before final5

CHIPS

There are two chips available to UCL Fantasy managers: Wildcard and Limitless.

These chips can be used only once per season and, once played, can’t be cancelled.

Wildcard

As in FPL, the Wildcard gives you the chance to change your squad as much as you like. When you play it you can make free unlimited transfers and any players you transfer in will stay in your squad once that matchday has finished.

Limitless

Limitless is the equivalent of FPL’s Free Hit chip and gives managers the chance to change their squad for one matchday only.

Once the matchday has finished, your squad will return to how it was before you played the Limitless chip.

Rather excitingly, there are no budget restrictions when activating Limitless – so, should you wish, you can pack your squad with the most expensive assets in the game.

SCORING SYSTEM

Again, the scoring system is a very familiar one.

Most of the player actions and the points on offer tally with FPL, although there are one or two notable differences.

A goal scored from outside the box gets an additional point, for example, while the acts of winning and conceding a penalty are rewarded and punished respectively.

Players also gain points through ball recoveries, which gives the more defensive-minded players a chance to rack up a tidy score.

Over half of Virgil van Dijk‘s (€6.0m) 2019/20 points total in UCL Fantasy was made up by recoveries, for example.

    Will Brewster be unavailable for gw6 V Liverpool ?

      Nah they signed him permanently, so should be fine (unless there's a clause I don't know about)

      1. Steve The Spud

        Ok cheers skonto, could be a good option but fixtures looks ropey, if that means anything !

          Yeah I've got him too! Hoping that he's at the very least a semi-regular starter given the money they've paid for him. Decent run from GW9 onwards and we'll be able to gauge how he's settling in by then.

    Any players I should prioritise getting rid for a hit? Still have my WC.

    I only just brought in Podence and Jimenez and want to replace them already.

    0.8itb 0ft
    McCarthy
    Robbo TAA Taylor
    KDB Salah Son Podence Bissouma
    DCL Jimenez
    (Peacock Ayling Justin Vassilev)

    1. RealSocialDads
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Play Ayling or Justin over Bissoumma

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Any particular reason why?

    2. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Podence for me, maybe a punt on Barkley.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        If I was going to get rid of Podence, I would want to transfer both Podence and Jimenez out to Grealish and Maupay. Probably not worth the - 8 since Wolves have some decent fixtures

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I would give Podence and Jimenez at least one more week; even if they blank but their underlying stats show a significant improvement, I would keep until GW8.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I probably will give them another GW. It would have to be a - 8 or WC to get rid

    4. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Daft notion imo. You can keep them for the next 3 at least.

  3. Kryptonite666
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    I think I have now settled on my WC

    Martinez
    Chilwell Saiss Bellerin Lamptey (Mitchell)
    Salah Son KDB Rodriguez (Bissouma)
    Kane DCL (Brewster)

    Brewster and Lamptey rotate based on fixtures.

    Whaddya think?

    1. Azathoth

      Sexy....

    2. Tonyawesome69

    5. Arn De Gothia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Nice, only small objection is both son & Kane seems overkill

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Points overkill is never bad.

    6. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Like it, similar to mine except I kept Wilson and Robbo instead of going for KDB, jury is still out though 😉

      There's 2 weeks of IB, so I'm going to go A right now, but I also like the option that B allows for D the following week. I'd like to see Wolves/Podence and a number of others teams/players settle before I sell the hog for -4.

        Rubbish question of the day:

        Who is a better pick of the following as a permanent bench fodder-

        A. Branthwaite (plays for Everton so potentially blocks an Everton triple up)

        B. Barry Douglas (highly likely to be loaned out to a championship team i.e. Watford or Blackburn before 16 Oct)

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 22 days ago

          You should have a playing bench so I wouldn't bother with those two

        2. Rhinos
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I mean they're both awful picks but if you must then it's arguably bettter to go for the one that plays in the premier league

      • JONALDINHO
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Which one on WC?
        A) Kane, Brewster and Bellerin
        B) Maupay, Antonio and Robertson

            • 11 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Would you bench any of these to play Brewster (FUL)

            KDB (ARS) Salah (eve) JRod (LIV) Podence (lee)

            1. Rasping Drive
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              I guess the only real option is Podence

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                Podence is the only one really - Rodriguez will be knackered and I don't expect him to perform at his best levels but still would rather play him than Brewster

                1. Rasping Drive
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  Yup, I think you’re right on the Podence front. I didn’t see the Wolves Fulham game - how did Podence look?

                  1. Miguel Sanchez
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    I dropped in and out, Wolves never looked that threatening when I saw them. Personally think Leeds will probably beat them on Monday week.

                    1. Rasping Drive
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years
                      1 month, 22 days ago

                      Thanks Miguel. May take a punt and start Brewster in that case

            2. Rhinos

              Are you sure Brewster will start?I think it's more likely to play 10-20 minutes.No for me.

                75% sure he’ll start. SHU desperate for goals.

            I’m really confused about what to do this week. All recommendations welcome. Think I need a fresh pair of eyes.

            McCarthy (Nyland)
            TAA Digne Dier Saiss Ferguson
            Salah Sterling KDB Pereira Bissouma
            DCL Maupay Brewster

            0.4 ITB 1FT

            I’m considering périra -> Barkley or bissouma -> Soucek or Digne -> Chilwell or rolling it

            1. wulfranian
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              I would hold Pereira.Kdb->Son and play 4-4-2 or Kdb+Bissouma->Son+Grealish/Trossard.

              Sterling or KDB -> son

              Sterling+ Pereira to Son + Grealish is the template move.

              250 points worth

                1 month, 22 days ago

                I'm thinking similarly. And yet not a lot of people have him. Even with how poor united have been he already has had 2 penalties and an assist.

              Nowhere near 250 points’ worth.

                  I’m in exact the same situation and I’m contemplating the same moves. Think I’m gonna save a transfer because Werner could do well vs SOU with Pulisic and possibly Ziyech back and WHU look solid defensively. It sounds maverick I know, but I’m tempted to keep Werner and put the armband on him tbh.

                Would upgrade different areas. Team:
                Martinez, Button
                Chillwell, Lamptey, Castagne, Dallas, KWP
                Son, Salah, Rodriguez, Townsend, Grealish

                  I’ve never played my WC early before, but I’m so tempted to this time.

                  Half of me says save it for later, especially if games start getting cancelled for COVID-19.

                  The other half looks at the fact that I can WC and get rid of Norwood, TAA, Tierney, Doherty and Ramsdale and replace them with Son, Castagne, Dallas, Robertson and Martinez all in one fell hit-less swoop.

                  And my inner side says, just a few changes week by week and you’ll be fine. My rash side says do it now before player prices rise again.

                  Anyone else have this kind of inner turmoil about playing their WC?

                  1. doher.ty
                      1 month, 22 days ago

                      I always wait to play my WC - had a shocker of a start and decided to pull the trigger last week.

                      Same. I just pulled the trigger so I dont have to think about it. Might as well wait now, the price rises for this week have already happened.

                        Yes, I think I’ll save.

                        Theoretically Ramsdale has a decent CS chance this coming GW. If they can’t shut out Fulham then they really are deep in the brown stuff.

                        I may ditch one of Tierney or Doherty for Dallas, but not sure yet as I can play TAA, Mitchell and KWP.

                        The most important move was already made last weekend, by ditching Werner for DCL.

                    Option A (4-4-2)

                    Martinez
                    Chilwell Saiss Bellerin Lamptey (Mitchell)
                    Salah Son KDB Rodriguez (Bissouma)
                    Kane DCL (Brewster)

                    Option B (3-4-3)

                    Martinez
                    Saiss Justin Lamptey (Dallas) (Mitchell)
                    Salah Son KDB Grealish (Bissouma)
                    Kane DCL Maupay

                    Option B has an extra attacker but with weaker defense.

                    A or B ?

                    Considering I wildcarded in GW4, there's quite a few subs planned.

                    Son is coming back in GW6, Grealish GW7.

                    Would you aim for Bowen & Brewster (3-5-2) or Antonio & Bissouma (3-4-3)?

                      1 month, 22 days ago

                      If the 4.5 slot for Brewster or Bissouma will be expected to play regularly I would do Bowen & Brewster because despite his wondergoal against Everton, Bissouma cant be expected to score more than 2 in any week. Brewster has potential to be a must have budget option.

                    Were these box office matches originally due to be aired on the standard Sky Sports and BT? I have both, and if those were not going to be aired anyway it doesn’t bother me as much, but if I am all of a sudden am losing games then I’ll be pulling the plug.

                    Wait, wtf. I thought we were moving back to a more traditional set of 5 tv fixtures and 5 sat 3pms?! Why stagger the fixtures if people arent going to pay to watch most of them?

                      Much better having them staggered. Certainly helps the blood pressure FPL wise. Embrace lower league football to fill your fix of multiple games at the same time. You must also remember the Premier League is watched live all over the world. PPV is a massive money spinner

                    Edouard #Mendy has returned to #Chelsea after suffering a thigh injury while on international duty with Senegal. He will probably miss the next match vs Southampton on October 17. He will try to be back in Champions League vs Sevilla on October 17 and #mufc on 24.
