There is a total of £600 worth of prizes on offer as our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) cup competitions for the 2023/24 campaign open for entry.

We are launching our latest open-to-all tournament, along with a separate competition for Premium Members only.

Again, those listed above will gain a bye to the first round proper of the Members Cup should they enter with the username listed.

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.

    Ofc Union Berlin scores tonight after not scoring the last 5 matches.

  3. 2EyedTurk

    Still weird seeing my name in that winners list!! Haven't come close since of course!

  4. Royal5
    • 12 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Ao Gabriel tonight and no Nketiah - both a risk for the weekend then

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Probably the opposite

    2. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Gabriel plays, Trossard up top

      1. Royal5
        • 12 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Tross could start again this weekend. Was considering Nkethia

  5. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Spurs sure are Dier straits

    1. Royal5
      • 12 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      There are literally no other CB’s available

      1. Royal5
        • 12 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Lol, read it as Dier starts

    2. NorCal Villan
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      I beg of you don’t murder me, please don’t murder me

  6. POGON 1948

    Not sure if to start Archer v Brighton or Palmer v City...

    Sheffield are awful but Brighton defense are super leaky this seaon, but then Palmer vs City sounds really spicy - only issue being that Palmer plays for Chelsea.Thoughts?

    1. Royal5
      • 12 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      2 goals in 12 for Archer. Would never start him.

    2. theplayer
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      He played for Chelsea v Spurs and scored 12 points. Not sure what your point is about who he plays for. They still score goals.

    3. Alan Watts
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      City are conceding the odd goal, if CHE score good chance that Palmer is involved

  7. Scalper
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Martinelli up striker you say?

    Hmmm

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      More likely Trossard false 9 and interchanging with Martinelli on the left

  8. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Help needed please

    Vicario (turner)
    Gabriel tsimakas Gabriel (colwill bell)
    Salah Maddison Bowen mbeumo (nakamba)
    Haaland Alvarez Watkins

    1.4 itb 1 ft
    Not a clue what to do..

    I'm thinking nakamba to Gordon but that would give me benching headaches every week..

    Or Alvarez and tsimakas (cash if injured)to trippier and nketiah/Édouard for -4?

    Or Maddison to saka???

    Honestly don't have a clue...could really used some help

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Sorry cash in defence instead of one of the Gabriel

  9. The Yam Bandit
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Cash or Dinge?
    Cash seems to be way over hyped in terms of returns per game. Digne is firing crosses in left and right but cant seem to get anyone on the end of them. Any thoughts?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Moreno is available for selection...

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Actually I should correct this. Probably get mins off the bench tomorrow and this weekend then pushing for starts after IB

        1. The Yam Bandit
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 months, 20 days ago

          So that means Digne is at risk huh?

  10. v3n0m

    6 months, 20 days ago

    Bench one:
    A) Lascelles (have Trippier)
    B) Tsimikas
    C) Mbeumo

    Anyone still having problems viewing the table on FPLStatistics?

    Apparently if you follow the instructions in note 2 then that should resolve the problem. I've tried this, but still I'm unable to see the table, so was wondering if anyone has had any success with seeing the information on the site???

      Ive not had any problem Im aware of unless what Im looking at is balderdash, poppycock or bunkum. Currently showing:

      100.2 Palmer
      99.4 Son
      98.3 Dalot

      -99.8 De Dercova Reid

  12. have you seen cyan
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    FPL stats isn't working. I have Ode, worried about him dropping. I will be moving him on, but for who? I can straight swap to Saka, but if Ode goes down or Saka up 0.1 I'm priced out, so I am having to check stats every day lol. Also, is Saka the best option? My attack is:

    Salah - Son - Ode - Bowen - Luiz
    Haaland - Alvarez

    1 ft

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      co.uk works

      Odegaard -93.8%

      1. have you seen cyan
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        damn, thanks lol. I somehow managed to survive in this situation for a while. I did take one drop, but cant anymore (if I want Saka).

        1. Øgaard it's Haa…
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 20 days ago

          Do you really want/need Saka though? Martinelli or Trossard might be good diffs +£.

          1. have you seen cyan
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 20 days ago

            Its Sakas ownership that's all. And well, most nailed, pens etc. I might do something random instead like a -4 and get Hojlund lol.

  13. Gazzpfc

    Transfers Needed

    Want to lose Lamptey and Butn

    Which 2

    1 Mitchell
    2 Lasellles
    3 Maguire

    ?????

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      not 3

    2. Boberella
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Easily 1&2

  14. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Nketiah the second most transferred in player for GW12 with 200k+ transfers and a price rise, but not in the squad tonight. Wonder if people thinking he'll be fit for the weekend...

    1. Cheese Crunch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      think he's fine

  15. JBG
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    MU first team to score.. not something you see often lately.

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      McTom helper

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah.. but he tried to break some kind of negative record at the start, by giving the opponent another stupid pen.

      2. NorCal Villan
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        One of Cousin Eddie’s favorite meals

    2. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Yeah it's weird.

      4 goals in 4 UCL games for Hojlund.

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Hopefully that carries over to the PL, you'd think he'd get a goal or two vs Luton.

        1. have you seen cyan
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 20 days ago

          he probably will brace or hatti soon.

          1. JBG
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 20 days ago

            If they start feeding him the ball as they do in CL matches, you'd think so.

      2. have you seen cyan
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        I think Hojlund will come good in the PL. Surprised he hasn't already tbh.

  16. Sprinterdude
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    I like the idea of Burn to Arron Wan-Wissaka because everyone is going for palace defenders or Gabrielle this week

  17. Scalper
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    I can’t believe I’m asking this…

    Is mctominay an option for 5mill below? Holding out on palmer until GW14

    1. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      not really, but luck my favour the bold. I have considered McTominay in at least one previous season, never did it though, to my detriment. He does have these little runs sometimes, and it always seems to be when ManU are really struggling, that's when he does best. I think same with Maguire.

    2. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      If you want a mid 5 mil or under I'd go Palmer now. He'll only rise in price

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Just as quite a few were getting him in by the looks of it too.

  20. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Need to bench one of these this week?
    A) Lascelles
    B) Cash
    C) Porro
    D) Gabriel

    Leaning towards Cash as he's apparently not as attacking at home but really not sure.

    1. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Yea I'd go with Cash as well. I'm thinking about transferring him out next couple.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks

    2. F4L
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Porro just about. very small chance of Spurs' CS missing 3 of their back 4

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Did cross my mind but wolves losing Neto is a big plus for spurs. I also think Porro will be more attacking with Udogie out. May come down to a coin toss.

        1. F4L
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 20 days ago

          could happen, didnt think Porro was that more attacking vs Palace when Udogie was missing tbf. and, with Dier/Hojberg CBs Porro might be a bit more cautious pushing forward

  21. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    Oh didn't realise estu was fit...reckon he'll play at least 60 v Sheffield?

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Might be a bit soon, but I hope so because he's still in my team...

      Hopefully picks up 30 mins tonight. If it's only 5-10 mins I can't see it.

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        De Zerbi did say he is in contention to play tomorrow, so who knows.

      2. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        Tomorrow*

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Cheers all

    3. Tic Tacs
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      I'm thinking of going Udogie to Estupinan if fitness looks positive

  22. F4L
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 20 days ago

    With Tripps, likely to play @LB alot now, Livra/Lascelles downgrades on Burn/Botman, and less players in the box from his set-pieces who will get their heads on the ball (less assists/less bps). Might not sell this week given fixture, but is he really worth keeping given his price?

    1. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      I'd only sell him when he starts blanking consistently, probably after 3 weeks in a row. I will probably keep him all season tbh.

    2. JBG
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 20 days ago

      Lascelles and Schar are pretty good in the air though?

      1. F4L
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 20 days ago

        yeah, but schar is always there. not sure Lascelles as good as Botman and +1 in Burn still missing. its just a small point but 6.5+ for a defender is alot and imo bit hard to justify his price now

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 20 days ago

          6.5m is not a lot for a player with his stats:

          GW5-GW11 points: 8 18 12 6 10 0 9
          9ppm average over this period.

          Like Cyan says, if he starts blanking consistently that would be the time to consider selling (if at all), but it can wait for now.

          1. Sheffield Wednesday
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 20 days ago

            *6.5m is what I paid for him. CP is 7m making him an even less attractive sell imo.

    Martinelli came to play, by far best player on pitch atm.

    Reckon Nketiah no longer an option? Would you consider Alvarez to Ferguson?
