If you’re new to our cup competitions, read on for an FAQ, offering all the details.

HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS 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 DO THEY START?

The qualifying round for the Fantasy Football Scout Open Cup will take place in Gameweek 12, with the first round proper running in Gameweek 13.

Fantasy managers can enter their teams in the Open Cup until 23:59 GMT on Sunday 12 November. We will make the first round draw after Gameweek 12 ends.

The qualifying round for the Members Cup will take place in Gameweek 13, with the first round running in Gameweek 14.

Fantasy managers can enter their teams in the Members Cup until 23:59 on Monday 27 November. We will make the first round draw after Gameweek 13 ends.

Previous winners must enter with the same usernames listed above to gain their bye.

Entrants must have registered their teams in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Gameweek 1.

HOW DO I ENTER?

Enter the free-to-all FFS Open Cup via the entry form here.

Enter the FFS Members Cup via the entry form here. This form is only visible to Premium Members and you will need to log into the Premium Members’ Area to view the form.

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. Your entry is only completed once you have confirmed your FPL team ID as part of the process. If your FPL team is incorrectly entered, we cannot amend this at a later date.

To check that you’re entered correctly, please scan the list of entries.

The open-to-all FFS Open Cup list is here.

The FFS Members Cup list is here.

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 below).

https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/XXX/history

Place this 1-8 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 Gameweek 12 ends and then weekly, after the completion of each Gameweek, from that point on.

Results from the Members Cup qualifying round will be published shortly after Gameweek 13 ends and then weekly, after the completion of each Gameweek, from that point on.

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.

    Gabriel benched

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Is that a good thing or a bad thing for owners?

      1. The Final Boss
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Good thing..

        1. Manic M
            7 months, 18 days ago

            Is it. He only just got a rest. I’d say bad thing

      2. Prinzhorn
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Gabriel to Salina for free?

        Done with this clown

      3. Qaiss
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        I remember telling people on here that Gabriel isn’t nailed and Saliba is in pre-season

        A particular user on here tried to tell me otherwise, even though I support Arsenal

        I was annoyed when Andy FPL spread around that Gabriel had been benched minutes before the deadline

      4. Stimps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Saliba gets rested this week then

      5. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 14 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Looks like arteta sees him as a liability unless he’s carrying some form of injury

        No way you keep changing the cb pairing like that

      6. I Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        What's the source on this? Not seeing it anywhere.

        1. theplayer
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          That's because it isn't true

    2. Ibralicious
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      I probably have the most injury-riddled actively playing team in history of FPL... with 5 short/long-term injuries and no WC in hand.

      What to do to survive the upcoming GW?

      Areola
      Cash - Tsimikas* - Burn**
      Salah - Son - Maddison* - Bowen
      Haaland - Darwin - Alvarez

      (Turner) (Laymptey** - Taylor - Anderson**) - 1 FT - 0.3 ITB

      Cheers!

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Start by getting rid of Burn and hope that Maddison starts.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Cheers. Gabriel a good option?

          1. 2EyedTurk
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 17 days ago

            I'd go Lascelles

      2. Botman and Robben
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Like Digital says, Burn first to go.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Thanks. Can do Burn —> Gabriel, go ahead with that move?

          1. Botman and Robben
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            Not so sure about Gab, would say Saliba but I see the pocket cannot let it happen.

            1. Ibralicious
              • 9 Years
              7 months, 18 days ago

              Other options are Mitchell, Maguire... annoyingly 0.1 short of Dalot/Konate

      3. LC1
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Like Usher once said.. Let it Burn

      4. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Why the asterisk on Tsimikas when he's not flagged?

    3. The Final Boss
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

        A sounds good

    4. jimmy.floyd
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Madison to Saka or Bowen?

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Bowen. Saka's not passing the eye-test atm.

      2. Botman and Robben
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Bowen

      3. WVA

        Maddison confirmed out?

      4. Qaiss
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        That’s not even close, Saka all the way

      Young defender Yann Bisseck will make his full debut for Inter Milan in this evening’s Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg.

      This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate that Denzel Dumfries will be on the bench and Bisseck will start.
      Bisseck has yet to make a start for Inter.

      In fact, the German has only made two appearances, both as a late substitute.

      Therefore, Bisseck has only played a handful of minutes over the first few months of the season.

      This was always likely to be the case. Even if the 22-year-old will have perhaps hoped for a little more of a role in the team, it is not as though Inter signed him to become an instant fixture in the starting lineup.

      But now, it looks as though Bisseck’s time has come.

    6. WVA
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Got a score of 24 with this team, lowest in all my mini leagues and dropped over 100k in rank. Rival managed 36 points with Mitchell and is now OR 91! Any way to stop the rott as I like my team?

      Areola
      Trippier Cash Udogie Gabriel
      Salah Saka Maddison Bowen
      Haaland Watkins
      Turner Palmer Archer Taylor

      1. Please Help I Don't Kn…
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        No idea how many transfers you have. It's not a bad team, so don't worry. Probably Udogie to Guehi, wait for news on Maddison.

      2. Prinzhorn
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Aren’t you done with the principal of Clown School Mr. Gabriel Magalhaes?

    7. Sgt. Schultz
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Udogie > Crystal Palace def/ Saliba (Ars double-up)

    8. bso

      • 9 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Is Bellingham likely to start? Or should I hold onto 3 pt Gundo and leave Bellingham on bench?
      Thanks!

      1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Probably out. But I am still leaving him in my team.

        1. bso
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Thanks mate. I went with Gundo's 3 pts as the news on him is not so good. Good luck today.

    9. Bruno Commando
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Which move is more urgent?

      1) Cash to Saliba (double up with Gabriel)
      2) JWP to Mitoma

      Areola // Turner
      Gabriel Tripps Tsimikas Cash // Kabore
      Salah Saka Son JWP // Chuk
      Haaland Watkins // Archer

      For those considering Nketiah, apparently Jesus is back after the break

        Oh 🙁

        Arteta caught out by Diniz then?

    11. Feanor
      • 15 Years

      Real benching headaches this week if Estupinan is fit

      Areola (Johnstone)
      Trippier, Andersen, Saliba (Cash, Estu)
      Salah (c), Son, Saka, Diaby (Mbuemo)
      Watkins, Nketiah, Alvarez

      Little game if anyone wants it.
      What 15 players could you have picked at the start of the season that would get you the highest score by this point without ANY transfers. You ARE allowed to sub on and off.

      What’s the most points you can make and where does that place you in the current leaderboard?

      1. Our Tiny Windows
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        I don’t have an answer I just curious what you find.

    13. waltzingmatildas
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      What move would you do here?
      A) Flekken, Alvarez to Johnstone, Nketiah (-4)
      B) Flekken to Areola
      C) Cash to Gabriel
      D) Roll

      Flekken Turner
      Trippier Cash Tsimikas Tark Baldock
      Salah Son Mitoma D.Luiz Palmer
      Haaland Alvarez Watkins
      1ft, 0itb

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        If Flekken is out I'd consider A but rather sell DLuiz for, maybe, Gordon. Not convinced Areola is going to stay #1 even though i have him and fixtures will improve.

    14. STONEROSES
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      What’s the feeling on Morrison;
      Likely to be okay for the weekend?

    15. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Early days but Maddison not in today's training session.

      3. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers, still will hold onto him unless it looks like he'll miss a few games

    16. AzzaroMax99
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Hwang or Palmer to Mitoma?

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Spurs have no defence, keep Hwang

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          Bloody hell you're not wrong. Just checked and that is a crisis.

    17. Man Chest Hair United
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Best Udogie replacement up to 5.0

      A Mitchell or Guhei
      B Gabriel
      C lascelles
      D Estupinan

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Estu is easily the most exciting one. Probably my Porro replacement if he gets minutes tommorow.

      2. waltzingmatildas
        • 13 Years
        7 months, 18 days ago

        D if fit. If not A

      Any suggestions?

        Saliba

    22. Giovanni Giorgio
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      A) Trippier + Nakamba --> Mbeumo + 4.3 (Mykolenko, Maguire, Lascelles)
      B) Trippier + Nakamba --> Eze + Estupinan

      1. Atwood
        • 14 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        A

      2. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Not sure why you would sell Trippier before they play Bournemouth.

            Thinking about bringing him for Burn this week. He's definetely hurting me not owning.

      I can't get past the donate page on FPL statistics to see the player prices. I've cleared the cookies but it won't go away. Do you have to pay something to see that info now?

        For me it flashes up and is then replaced by the normal page.

          Yeah, I think it did that before but it's not going away now. Looks like I'll need to do a bit of clearing out. Thanks.

      2ft 0.3itb

      Areola
      Cash/Gabriel/Branthwaite
      Salah/Saka/Bowen/Mitoma/Madds
      Haaland/Watkins
      (Strash/Tsmi/Archer/Taylor)

      Madds -> Bruno ? Then look to get Son following week with 2ft

        I'm sure it's just me but I'd rather have Gordon than Bruno

      Gabriel does start tonight.

      Arsenal XI: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Jorginho, Rice, Havertz; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli

        Ode not in the squad again. Nketiah out with an ankle injury.

          Nothing against Nketiah owners but I hope he's out v Burnley because Arsenal look far better with someone like Trossard at CF, at least the likes of Martinelli and Saka should get more chances then. Odegaard still not being fit is a big worry going forward, if this is a long-term thing then I really do have to look at selling Saka next week

      Gabriel starts. Lots of nonsense flying about today.

      According to FFFix assistant manager I’m going to score 61 this week. Last week I was predicted to score 58 and I scored 21 so let’s see how this goes.
