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.

    Should be a red card

  2. Bobby Digital

    Rashford sent off

  3. PartyTime

    UEFA refs still hate the English lol

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      You mean UEFA refs don't protect the English, like the English refs in the PL.

    2. Pumpkinhead - I'm ITK …
      • 15 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Here he is. Right on cue. I think you must have said this same thing everytime UTD have played in Europe. Broken record over and over and over 😆

  5. PartyTime
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Omg. The nicest kid has been sent off!

  6. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    THIS IS THE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SON.
    NO BRITISH REF WILL SAVE YOU NOW IN EUROPE!!

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Deserved red, but wouldn't have even been a yellow or looked at VAR if it was in the PL.

      1. FPL Blow-In
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Not a deserved red imo

        1. nerd_is_the_werd
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          It's a stone-cold red sir.

          When are you allowed to plant your foot with studs showing into your opponent's calf with such force?
          He didn't even pull out of it once he realised what occurred.
          Dangerous and reckless.

          1. FPL Blow-In
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 17 days ago

            It’s not at all. How could he pull out when he is making the movement to shield the ball before the opponents leg is placed under his foot!

            1. FPL Blow-In
              • 11 Years
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Same thing happened Curtis Jones with that zoom in on the freeze frame too, of course it looks worse then.

            2. nerd_is_the_werd
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 17 days ago

              Well there is the problem right there.
              You can only do that if you're confident to win the ball.
              He did NOT, and therefore harmed the player as a result.

              1. FPL Blow-In
                • 11 Years
                7 months, 17 days ago

                Red card I can see why it would split opinions and was given although I do think it was harsh but do you agree with the penalty decision ?

                1. nerd_is_the_werd
                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 17 days ago

                  I think it's a bit harsh personally.

                  You can always argue his arm shouldn't be there, but there's like 100 ricochets from a couple of players in a congested penalty box.
                  And it wasn't like Copenhagen were denied any kind of goal-scoring opportunity anyway, no reason to handle the ball.

                  Can see why it's given though, but mostly see those not.

        2. Gunners in Haaland
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          Deserved red

          1. nerd_is_the_werd
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 17 days ago

            Well yeah, lucky he got away without a severe injury.

  7. Not again Shirley
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Hojland did this a few weeks back. Did well in champions league match before Brentford at home so brought him in and he did absolutely nout (failed miserably against Sheffield United too). Then sold him for Watkins (who has also done nout since I brought him in)

    Alvarez to Hojland now n the carfs

    1. Not again Shirley
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Cards and captain against Luton. What’s the worst that can happen!

  8. putana
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    It's funny because the ref saw the rashford tackle and didnt even call it a foul

    1. JBG
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      And then watched it 3 times in slow mo, where it looks way worse l.

  9. putana
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    and now United will lose

    1. PartyTime
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      3-2 Copenhagen win

  10. PartyTime
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Let’s go manchester united! Concede again!

  11. PartyTime
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Gonçalves cooking utd

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

    Penalty Copenhagen

  13. putana
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Fridge LOL

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      He could do nothing about that. Ridiculous penalty.

      1. putana
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        if he didnt raise his hands to grab the player the ball wouldnt have hit him

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

    2-2

    1. Buck The Trent
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Maguire assist ?

      1. The Senate
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        VAR (A)

  15. PartyTime
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Lmao Gonçalves you beauty!

  16. Maddamotha
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Lol what a ref. How is that a pen. Lol!

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Bizarre pen. Unavoidable and gained no advantage.

  17. Piggs Boson
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    A penalty given against United in every single UCL game so far.

  18. JBG
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Nice to see that the refs are deciding the outcome of the match and not the players themselves.

  19. The Senate
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Not a red and not a pen. What’s the point of VAR?

    1. MIGHTY JOE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      No idea

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

    That was no pen though

  21. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Absolutely pathetic.

    You'll never see any team with any modicum of intelligence find a way to lose a game being 0-2 up.
    100% Rashford's fault, and will start the next game as always.

    No accountability at Man Utd which is why they are so bad.
    You'll never see this at any top club, the manager would bench or drop them before they even set foot on the pitch.

  22. putana
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Makes me laugh whenever maguire gets praise because you just know he is committing a ridiculous mistake every other game

  23. Woy_is_back
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Rashford getting ETH sacked

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Looked like he was trying to shield the ball, didn't look deliberate.

      But it endangered the opponent so he had to go. Just unlucky I think.

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Just like every other manager he's player for.

  24. Free Hat

      Guehi maybe more safer

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

      Im in a similar position with Udogie to go out.

      I noticed Tomiyasu came off at half time. If injured perhaps Zinchenko a good punt.

  28. Hazardous1983
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    3. Derbz87
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      No, he's a comfy pair of slippers but can't see him scoring double digits even with a great fixture.

  29. Hazardous1983
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Start scharr or tsmikas

    1. Man Chest Hair United
