Enter our FFS Members Cup now and win prizes

Our third and final Fantasy Premier League (FPL) cup competition for the 2023/24 campaign is now open for entry – and £300-worth of prizes are on offer.

This tournament is for Premium Members, who can sign up for the tournament via the entry form here.

In our FFS Members Cup, our list of previous winners is as follows: 

Those listed above will gain a bye to the first round proper of this new FFS 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?

Our cups are 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 Members Cup will take place in Gameweek 29, with the first round running in Gameweek 30.

Fantasy managers can enter their teams in the FFS Members Cup until 23:59 GMT on Sunday 17 March. We will make the first-round draw after Gameweek 29 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 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 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 Members Cup qualifying round will be published shortly after Gameweek 29 ends and then weekly, after the completion of each Gameweek, from that point on.

    Thoughts on Romero as a differential to Porro and Udogie?

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Think the extra tracking threat is worth the money for Udogie or Porro. Not many clean sheets this season. He also loves a yellow card.

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah, he's a good pick.

      Decent goal threat, but can be a bit of a card magnet mind you.

  2. The Pep Revolution

    All those playing the FH chip. I just think if you can field 8 to 9 players then surely having a full team for two matches is worth holding the chip for? Or am i missing something?

    1. Old Man
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      8 or 9 players would cost me big time. FH active.

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I think that most using FH are only able to field 6 or less.

      If you can field 8/9 players and 5/6 are attackers, the FH clearly isn't worth it.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sure but you need to define who the players actually are.

    4. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Watkins, Bowen, , Kudus, Morris, Son, Maddison, Toney, Wissa, Luiz, Bailey, Muniz.

      5 or 6 of these

  3. Vovhund
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Sorry, bottomed:

    Is this enough to save FH:
    Areola
    Pau
    Son-D.Luiz-Bowen
    Watkins

    GW29 transfer: Foden to Maddison and maybe: Estupinan to Udogie/Doughty for -4 giving me 8 active for GW29

    1. STONEROSES
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yep, would def save my FH if could field 8 with one hit

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No Brentford could be an issue.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Potentially yes but depends on plans beyond 29

      1. Vovhund
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        WC30 or 31

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

          Not overly keen on a defender hit this GW but a Spurs defender to cover 29/30 before WC31 may pay off

    4. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I wouldn't hit for a defender - unless you get the right one, it is probably costing you -2. The hit for Doughty should have been before the double because at least it would have paid off. I see Fulham scoring so you are reliant on more than one attacking return from Udogie.

      1. Vovhund
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Good point. Could do:
        A) Foden to Maddison (field 7)
        B) Foden and Solanke to Maddison and Morris (-4 and field 8)
        C) Foden and Haaland to Maddison and Tonet (-4 and field 8)
        D) Foden, Solanke and Haaland to Maddison, Morris and Toney (-8 and field 9)

  4. STONEROSES
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Is the BIG FIVE* in midfield essential for upcoming WC’s?
    Really struggling to accommodate all in my team as TV is so bad.

    *Palmer, Son, Foden, Salah, Saka

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

      Depends how you plan to navigate 34 which may have different doubles compared to 37

    2. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      This is what I’ve been thinking about. Especially as I sold Palmer for KDB so lost value there. Also don’t really want to sell Watkins the top scoring forward in the game but seems only way to accommodate it.

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      The reality is that there is a need to downgrade somewhere.

      Palmer and Foden don't really have any downgrade options - downgrading a fully fit Salah is probably a risk that isn't worth taking.

      So perhaps Saka becomes Havertz or Martinelli - although you aren't getting the secuirty of starts, pens etc that Saka's additional cost clearly makes worthwhile. Son could become Richarlison but again, feels like its not a proportional downgrade.

      So the answer lies elsewhere, and almost certainly in Watkins or Haaland...

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Just clarify, assumes you want to downgrade to an alternative in the same team - clearly you could downgrade Foden to say Luiz or something like that.

        1. Bucket Man
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I think my decisions this week depend on if I Wildcard GW30 or 31. As I will keep Haaland, Foden etc if I wildcard next week to keep value and if I don’t I will sell to afford Salah for next GW.

          If I Wildcard my decision is probably between:
          A) Watkins, Hojlund, Garnacho 343
          B) Darwin, Foden, Muniz 352

          Not got much budget for defence and goalkeeper as well.

  5. Bucket Man
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    For a -4. Toney in along with Bowen/Kudus/Gibbs-White for hopefully 10?

    Areola
    Reguilon*, Udogie, Taylor, Doughty
    Son, Maddison, *
    Watkins, *

    However not sure who to sell. Either Foden, Garnacho or Saka. Have more value in Saka and can only afford up to Kudus if I sell Garnacho.

    Also sell Haaland or Solanke. It all depends on if I Wildcard next gameweek as selling Haaland will allow me to get Salah in and push Wildcard to GW31 but I will be without the likes of Palmer and Haaland and my defence doesn’t look great.

    WC30 or 31?

    FH29:

    Konsa is suspended for Europa. Cash is not worth the punt.

      Cheers

  7. g40steve

    GTG ?

    Take a punt on the Forest lads play mid or striker, Luton short turn round.

    Flekken
    Regiulon, Porro, Doughty/Williams
    #Elanga, Bailey, Son, Maddy, Bowen
    Watkins, Toney, #Wood/Awoniyi

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Looks good. I’m tempted by a Forest player on non FH. Luton looked tired and defence isn’t great and they play an open attacking game. Not sure who starts of the forwards. Is Elanga nailed or Gibbs White safer?

      1. Warby84
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I think Elanga starts after Brighton blank..

  8. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    On FH chip, the money left ITB should be transferred into points.

    Would start the GW with an easy 11pts…

  9. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    coufal has 6 assists this season, is he the best option after spurs defence/doughty? cheers

    1. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Not for me. Not an easy fixture and West Ham never look an attacking team. Reguilon if fit possibly. Or a Villa defender.

    2. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Ha, just added to my FH29 team before reading this…reckon so, always had a spot for Coufal and Cresswell before him…

    3. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Personally, if on FH, I would avoid Villa & WH def altogether.

      I can't see a CS for either side and would rather risk a Brentford double up, with one Spurs def plus Doughty.

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      thanks all. reguilon would have been my pick but he s a doubt

  10. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Which Villa defender is the one to get on FH, they all seem so unsettled?

    Would you change any of these:

    Flekken* - Areola
    Porro* - Moreno - Doughty* - Coufal - Reguilon*

    * is the one’s plan to start…

  11. STHH
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    My entire plan was to free hit this week but I've got to it and I'm looking at the defence and I'm wondering if there's any point in bothering. I've got Bowen, Son, Watkins and Doughty. I've also got a few players I'm happy to ditch so could get to six with a -4 (De Bruyne, Solanke). I'm just wondering if free hit is even worth it if there are no clean sheets.

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      The four stars above are decent enough, which could line up as first choice in a normal GW.

      Defences this season are pretty much a dead rubber, so anything you get is gravy…

      1. STHH
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        There are a lot of leftfield choices that people aren't paying attention to that I might go for to try to gain ranks. I quite the look of Wood this weekend for some reason.

        My defence has shifted from Christmas time when I had about 30m tied up in it, to now where I barely have 21m.

    Everyone looking forward to GW Claret, Blue & White?
