€50k top prize in Fanteam’s easy-to-play, FPL-style Champions League game


Sponsored by FanTeam


The UEFA Champions League starts this evening – and you could have €50,000 in your pocket by the time the group stage ends in December.

By entering FanTeam’s Champions League Group Stage game ahead of tonight’s Gameweek 1 deadline at 17:55 BST, Fantasy managers will be in with a chance of winning a share of the guaranteed €250,000 prize pool.

Given that only 2,200 teams have been entered at the time of writing, and with the top 1,744 places assured of cash prizes, the odds are favourable to say the least.

It’s a Fantasy game without the complications, too: no Wildcards, no chips, no convoluted scoring system, no price changes – it’s a six-Gameweek, FPL-style tournament that gives you the chance to pair Robert Lewandowski with Lionel Messi and walk away with a huge cash prize in the process.

Entries cost just €25, with an unlimited number of teams per user allowed.

HOW TO PLAY: A BRIEF GUIDE

It really is nice and easy, this game, with the basic rules as follows:

  • Build a squad of 15 players that includes two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.
  • A maximum of three players from a single Champions League club can be picked, with the transfer budget set at 100.0m.
  • A starting XI is then selected for each Gameweek from that squad of 15, with a captain chosen to earn double points.
  • Two free transfers are allowed every Gameweek, with each additional transfer costing minus four points. Managers can roll a maximum of two Gameweek transfers forward.

SCORING SYSTEM

FPL managers, or those playing FanTeam’s €1m season-long Premier League game, will find the scoring system €250K Champions League Group Stage game a doddle.

The points breakdown is shown above, with the minor differences outlined below.

KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL
  • There is no Bonus Points System, which is replaced by plus/minus points if a team is winning/losing during the period a player is on the pitch.
  • Goalkeepers get 0.5 points for every save made, unlike the one point awarded in FPL for increments of three stops.
  • Committing a foul that leads to a free-kick goal or converted penalty is penalised by minus two points.
  • Midfielders and forwards get an extra point for completing the full match.

    Which transfer makes more sense this week?

    1) VVD to TAA/ Robbo.
    2) Ings to Kane (already have Son)
    3) Podence to Bruno and VVD to a 4.0 bench fodder (already have three playing defenders)

    Thanks!

      OK, old fart here. someone please help me out. 14 years in and I have never sussed out the Watchlist on the FPL website. I know last week I added players to my 'Watchlist' but now I want to make I transfer but how can I see them? I've Google galore and ended up here.

      Where is this illusive 'Watchist? on the FPL website when I'm in my team? (Proper noob/old fart question know, sorry).

      First person to answer I will transfer the 0.1 that you just need (If I could do, obviously).

      Cheers.

        Go to transfers, then the player list drop down. Its the second option down.

          Thanks mate. Appreciate it. A virtual 0.1 coming your way. Good luck for the rest of the season.

        What could you do with a double hit?

        1. Tshelby
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          With a -8?

          1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Yeah

            1. Tshelby
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Mmm could get Kane and upgrade Trossard and get rid of Davies

              1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                I think it's worth considering.
                Anyways, get Kane.

      3. TimoTime
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Vardy > Kane and you should be OK

        1. Tshelby
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeah no trust in Vardy anymore? Was thinking about getting Bruno in actually

          1. TimoTime
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Kane a lot more exciting atm, could really hurt you if he hauls twice in the next three and you still aren't involved

            1. Tshelby
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Yeah true. Vardy -> Kane it is

    6. Mudbay
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 7 days ago

      What do you think of my team?

      McCarthy / (Nyland)

      Doherty - Justin - KWP - TAA - Ferguson

      Salah - Mane - Son - Soucek - Podence

      Brewster - Mitrovic - Werner

      1. dshv
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Dcl or hamez needed

      2. TimoTime
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Dont like Brewster, Mitro, Soucek, Justin, Ferguson and the Southampton defensive double up.

    7. GaribaldiT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      If money is not an issue, which three forwards would you go for, out of:

      A) Calvert-Lewin
      B) Jiminez
      C) Kane
      D) Werner
      E) Aguero

      Thanks

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I mean if money's no issue then Kane, Werner, Aguero. I'd drop Werner first of those.

      2. TimoTime
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        DCL, Kane, Aguero

      3. parkin' the bus

      4. Fletch365
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        1FT - what would you change here? want kane and roddy but not keen on losing werner. Also want rid of mitro

        McCarthy
        TAA-Justin-Saiss
        Rashford-Son-Salah-Grealish
        Werner-DCL-Mitro

        Nyland-Taylor-Mitchell-Biss

        1. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Dare I say hold this week

      5. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Fancy getting a Villa player in whilst the bandwagon is still rolling. Which FT would you do here?

        A) Mitro > Watkins
        Or, ASM to:
        B) Grealish (worth the extra money?)
        C) Barkley
        D) McGinn

        1. TimoTime
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Grealish probably has the highest ceiling

        2. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I would do B.

          Go for the talisman

          1. Tcheco
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Also, If I still had Mitro I would definitely hold for the next 2

        3. Matt Sk
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          B

        4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          B by a mile for me

      6. davies
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Which option do you prefer?

        A) TAA Pulisic Watkins
        B) Dallas Grealish Kane (-4)

        Martinez Forster
        Robertson Lamptey ***** Mitchell Kilman
        Salah Sterling Son ***** Soucek
        ***** DCL Brewster

        Cheers.

        1. Bavarian
          • 2 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Kane currently exceeding his XA by 6. Bit like Bruno at the end of last year.

      8. Sturridge Wars
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Which one?
        A) Grealish
        B) Zaha
        C) Barkley
        D) McGinn

        1. Bavarian

          A

      9. Bavarian
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Lot of (C) options this week..
        who to (C)?

        A-Salah (SHU Home)
        B-Kane (BUR Away)
        C-Son (BUR Away)
        D-Jimenez (NEW Home)
        E-DCL (SOU Away)
        F-Grealish (LEE Home)

        1. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Has to be Salah imo

        2. aborg
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          You forgot Sterling (WHU Away)
          ...and will probably captain him and VC Kane

        3. Over Midwicket
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Kané. Look at his away form.

      10. rnrd
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Silly question I guess.. In the stats section, when we click "defensive team stats", when it's said "chanced conceded on the right flank" are we talking about the right flank og the defense or the attack?
        I mean, if we say Liverpool conceeded 7 big chanced from the right flank, are we talking TAA or Robbo side?

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I’m almost certain it’s the defensive right.

        2. potatoace
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I always thought it was the defending right , so TAA.

            Last night Ayling was more threatening but they seem to even out from one game to the next.

            I asked Leeds fans and they Said that Ayling is probably a bit more nailed, so I went with him.

              Nevermind, he's a decent shout but Marcal injury has helped. MOTM and winning team in his favour.

          2. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I wish I knew for sure, but many say his position is not secure.

          3. aborg
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Secure or not, he is a good enabler. Had him on my bench this GW and missed out on 12 points!

            • 9 Years

            Don't believe he's their long term plan but he should have bought himself a few more games with his performance yesterday and Marcal only getting 1min this week.

          Would you take out Wilson for Kane?

          Good move or not my other strikers are DCL and Werner

          1. Leonard hatred
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Kane is a better player than Wilson, and will score more points this season.

            Happy to help 🙂

            the question is what you would do with the extra money? Kane is clearly a better bet than Wilson

            • 3 Years

            Absolutely. Have a feeling the WH comeback will affect them and their mental fragility. Also Europe game

            They have good defensive stats but Spurs haven't blanked since GW1.

          Do you think Barkley will keep pace with Grealish over the next few gamesweeks?

          Trying to work out if I should use the extra money to upgrade Barnes to JRod... or look elsewhere for the funds

            Such a groundhog day topic. No, it's Barkley, he always fizzles out

          Seriously considering TC Sterling. He has 6 goals in 3 games v WH, he's a streaky player on form, and City look to be turning a corner

            Also City have scored 22 goals away to WH in the last five games

              20? 44435?

                Guess it's 22, was including other comps. Seems they have no trouble scoring against them.

          Has the EPL issued any statement(s) regarding the EVE-LIV match and the controversies in it?

            I would answer but "EPL" as a term makes me want to get sick in my mouth

            No official statements apart from them saying Pickford will not get any ban, challenge has been deemed fine.

            But there have also been reports saying that David Coote didnt know that he could have given a red for the foul after the offside had been given so the excuse is that he didnt know the rules, this was in mail so make of that what u will.

            As for the mane offside and why it was given no comment as yet

          There are some really huge differential opportunities this week.

          Sterling and Aguero vs whu could be huge. Almost no one owns yet alone will captain them this week. Mane has the highest non-penalty xG in the league other than Kane. He's also owned by almost no one.

          The question is, is this week to try the differential captain haul? I'm really struggling to see past Salah.

            Sterling captain here. He loves playing them. Aguero record v them is so so

          Got exact money for the transfer. What to do with Barnes?

          A) Save FT
          B) Barnes>Grealish

            I'd sell for Grealish on FT this week. It's a long term upgrade and you're swapping in Grealish for a favorable fixture vs Barnes' hard one.

          which transfer is more urging given my current squad?

          martinez - 4.0
          taa - robbo - justin - taylor - mitchel
          son - kai - foden - barnes - 4.5
          jimmy - wood - RICHARLISON

          with 5.5 ITB
          richa + 4.5 > brewster + salah (C) for a hit
          richa > kane (c)

          Barnes to graelish worth a -4?

            Dunno tbh , but this week is a good week for a -4. Think there are going to be a lot of hits as people clamber for Kane
