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.

    Maguire more nailed now with Evan’s injury ?

    1. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Hahaha! Nailed to play in embarrassing losses.

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

      Yes. He's 1st choice CB atm.

      Even when Martinez is back I think Maguire will be starting alongside him. Varane's in the doghouse.

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      still United defence

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

    Saka 1g 1a so far. Double digit haul.

  7. :
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Bukayo Sakassist actually scores a non-penalty goal 😯 Essential!

  8. F4L
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    arsenal attack just better without nketiah

    1. KanuLenoMeeMoCash
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Is nketiah out for the weekend?

      1. F4L
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        not confirmed yet, missing tonight through injury

  9. Arteta
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Saka is just warming up for the weekend. 🙂

  10. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Yup Saka (C) v Burnley (H) IF Nketiah misses the game at the weekend

    1. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Does he have injury?

    2. drughi
      • 14 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      only 2 days rest

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        No long travel with 2 home fixtures B2B and 3pm KO on Saturday, seems fine to me.

    3. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Don't get the connection.

  11. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    All these talks about how poor saka is...he s my top priority this gw for sure

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

      he's consistent but he's just not really captain material. Comfy slippers I said it before, ticks along nice, rarely breaks double digits.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        I love comfy slippers:)

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 17 days ago

          So does mine war hound!

    2. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      BUR will turn up. Turbulent times.

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

        Remember he had 0.06 XGI when they smashed Sheffield United up and got the flukey assist from the corner? I can see Arsenal smashing Burnley up but him barely being involved and picking up another 6 pts or something.

  12. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Is Saka a must transfer in for this weekend then?

    1. :
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Hat-trick of assists and a penalty gifted to Raya incoming.

    2. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Not for me. Back of my thoughts.

    3. Monklane
      • 14 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Guess not.

  13. Serresiete
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Is Tomiyasu first choice now or what?

  14. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Saka likely to rise tonight
    Maddison likely to drop tonight

    Stones + Maddison ->
    Gabriel + Saka -4

    Exact funds. pull the trigger?

    1. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      IN SANE

    2. Brehmeren
      • 14 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Neither is likely to change tonight, based on fplstats

  15. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Need to bench one out of these lots, which one?
    A. Tsimikas (BRE)
    B. Guehi (EVE)
    C. Cash (FUL)
    D. Gabriel (BUR)

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

      C

    2. F4L
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      B

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

      B

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      B
      Though wouldn't be crazy for D to be benched again lol

    5. Silecro
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      A by a mile

  16. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Need a 1 week punt to replace Stones a) saliba b) Estu if fit or c) another def up to 5.4? Thanks

    1. F4L
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Saliba, bank the likely 6-8 points

      only Estu or Digne stand out otherwise and chance neither start

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers yeh safest option

  17. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

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

  18. Free Hat
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Only negative about a possible Saka (c) is that I expect reduced minutes (+-75min) when ars is clearly winning.

    Prefer Burnley at home to Salahs brentford though

  19. F4L
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    handballs in European matches are crazy

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      In the PL as well

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

    Ref has to give this pen. Copenhagen handball in area. If Maguire's was a pen, this one is too

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

      Given. C'mon Bruno...

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

        GOAL

        3-2

  21. Mr. O'Connell
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Football really showing how far it's gone down the toilet in this United game.

  22. The Legend Squad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Tough one for me:

    A. Saka, Palmer
    B. Bowen, Eze

    A is safer, but Palmer lower ceiling. B is more aggressive, but much riskier.

    Thoughts?

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

      I don't see Eze as an aggressive option. That's my main thought. Palace don't score enough goals for him to be aggressive.

  23. Gudjohnsen
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Captain

    A. Saka
    B. Bowen
    C. Haaland
    D. Son

    1. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      C

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

      B

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      C. Tempted by Son if Maddison passed fit, think Spurs will respond and try to make a statement.

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

    Soft pen

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

      They both were. I think Europe have different handball laws...

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

        Yup

  25. TOBY1
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Saka down

    1. F4L
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      only way to get Arteta to sub him

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

      🙁

  26. Gizzachance
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Arteta finally taking saka off

  27. Dušan Citizen
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Are you ready for new round of "We'll assess Saka in the training before the match"?

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

      The cynic in me thinks that he'll miss Burnley and then won't have to go on international duty

      1. RICICLE
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Sound reasoning actually

  28. drughi
    • 14 Years
    7 months, 17 days ago

    saka off injured ?

    1. Gizzachance
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Before he probably got injured !

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

    Kane 2 goals

  30. RICICLE
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 17 days ago

    Is it really even worth bringing in Saka at this point?
