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.

3rd Place: £50 Amazon voucher

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.

    Mmmm.. tempting to get a Luton player this week

      Luton probably going there with too much confidence now.

      Another Kabore bench haul loading!

  3. nerd_is_the_werd

    That is genuinely one of the worst defeats in Man Utd's history of all time.
    Considering how they were 0-2 in front, the stupidity of Rashford (and the red card), the fact they got in front... and still proceeded to concede 4 goals..... without any backbone to defend the lead for 25 minutes.... and considering what was at stake.... PATHETIC!!!

      You hate to see it

    Saka to Bowen is tempting

    1. Magic Zico

      £400M did he spend?

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        “Spend” is a generous term - Antony, Mount, Onana, Casemiro all useless. Dodgiest loans going too, his talent ID is actually horrific.

  6. DA Minnion (Former great)

    Is Saka injured or OK?

    1. boombaba
      • 11 Years

      Taken off with a knock it seems

        That sounds even worse in many ways

        8 months, 11 days ago

        He jumped, landed, then went down. Didn't look like he twisted his ankle. Who knows what he's done now. Might even be all a show for the weekly 'will he, won't he' saga.

    3. g40steve

      Was getting fouled from kick off, turning opposition inside out.

      Saka comes onto pitch at full-time and high-fives some team-mates. Still limping. Asked by Ben White what issue is, it seems, and points to left foot. Good thing is no ice on it and he didn't go straight down tunnel for treatment.

      1. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 11 Years

        Cheers Hazz et al.

  8. jacob1989

    Was just about to do Maddison to saka till i saw another saka potential injury. What the hell? And nketiah injured too? Who to get then? Martinelli?

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Damn
      I have both Saka and Nketiah :/

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Nketiah may well be fine for the weekend. Rested as precaution. Gotta be careful with their other CF out. Think I saw he was close for today earlier.

    2. Snake Juice
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      He's fine

  9. Woy_is_back
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Any chance Dalot gets dropped? I want to start Reguilon lol

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      They just conceded 4 to Copenhagen

      Tea lady getting prep’d for the weekend

    Didn’t see the Saka injury but I’m not sure I’m falling for it again… took him out before the Bournemouth game and got away with it.
    How bad was his latest injury?

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      He walked all around the pitch once subbed, managed to get him self booked as well as wasn't in a hurry to get off, seemed to limp less the longer he messed about. I reckon he'll be fine. But who knows!

  11. Feanor
    • 15 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    If Saka and Nketiah are out my replacements will be Mbeumo and Cash.

    1. PastaFasul
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Better off than most...

  12. Nate(U)dog(ie)
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Ah Saka injury merry-go-round once again eh? Can't see myself keeping after this week, getting tiresome

    1. Qaiss
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      He's a season keeper mate, 66 points in 10 games so far and that's been with some tricky fixtures.

      It would be an ideal time to rest him this weekend and keep him from international duty but considering we have injuries in the squad already and he didn't play for England last time, he should be alright I guess

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        I agree on paper, I've had since GW1. But there's been a lot of stuff that have to make it worth considering. Passing penalties over, Odegaard missing, Jesus missing, poor stats, getting subbed off injured so many times, etc. His pts tally is great but he also has 2 assists in his last 3 games (one of which was very fortuitous), and Arsenal just don't seem to be fully clicking right now like they were when at their best. Selling with those fixtures feels like a moronic decision but I'm not sure I can keep holding not knowing what's actually the truth about hie condition and the condition of other players that are key to him having better potential

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Keeping IF he finally gets benched again Palmer can come in.

  13. Snake Juice
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    the red devils. beautiful.

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      Shocking meanwhile they wouldn’t wait for Kane & he’s breaking records weekly!

      1. Qaiss
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Kane wasted enough time at Spurs, I don't think he wanted to risk doing that again. He's feasting at Bayern and rightly so, he needs to win some trophies

        1. g40steve
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 11 days ago

          True, surrounded by superstars but he’s just a class above them.

      2. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Can never tell if you’re joking or being dense every time you bring Kane up

  14. g40steve
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Best Captain?

    Areola,
    Cash, Tsimikas, Mitchell
    Salah, Son, Saka, Gordon
    Haaland, Watkins, Alvarez

    Turner, Palmer, Taylor, Udogie

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      It's a tough one. Haaland and any of Salah, Son or Saka could be decent picks. Can't decide between Salah and Haaland.

      1. g40steve
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 11 days ago

        Don’t mind going differential after last weeks shocker 🙂

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 11 days ago

          I think if spurs didn't have so many issues now I'd go for Son.

    2. Warby84
      • 9 Years

      Haaland

    Thoughts on Martinelli?

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 11 days ago

      I'd say he's a good shout for the next few.

  16. Øgaard it's Haa…
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 11 days ago

    Unsure who to play/bench here. Current plan:

    Areola
    Cash, Guehi, Mitchell
    Salah, Son, Diaby, Mitoma, Gordon
    Watkins, Haaland

    Bench: Turner, Alvarez, Tsimikas, Botman

    Any advice gratefully receved.

      Alavrez play
