How to play UEFA Euro 2024 Fantasy: Rules, chips, scoring + subs

The official 2024 European Championships’ Fantasy game has launched nice and early, allowing managers to start drafting their squads.

And Fantasy Football Scout will be the home of Euro 2024 this summer.

From the summer tournament’s curtain-raising clash between Germany and Scotland on June 14, you can read about every game right the way through until the final.

We will cover every Euro 2024 match in the form of Scout Notes.

And we will have detailed breakdowns of every participating nation in the build-up to Euro 2024 too, picking out their key creators, goalscorers and defensive rocks from qualifying as well as predicting their most likely starting XIs.

But first: a guide to the official Fantasy game.

HOW DOES THE EURO 2024 FANTASY GAME WORK?

READ THE EURO 2024 RULES IN FULL

There are seven Euro 2024 matchdays (the equivalent of Gameweeks) in total. These correspond to the three rounds of games in the group stage, plus the round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

As in FPL, you select two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards on a budget of €100.0m. That figure rises to €105.0m from the knockout stages onwards.

There is a limit on how many players you can select from one national team. This changes as the tournament progresses.

  • For the group stage, you can pick a maximum of three players from the same team
  • For the round of 16, you can pick a maximum of four players from the same team
  • For the quarter-finals, you can pick a maximum of five players from the same team
  • For the semi-finals, you can pick a maximum of six players from the same team
  • For the final, you can pick a maximum of eight players from the same team

CAPTAINS AND SUBSTITUTIONS

Euro 2024 Fantasy Rules

Like the UEFA Champions League Fantasy offering, the Euro 2024 Fantasy game allows managers to change captains throughout a matchday and make substitutions.

After all the matches on a single calendar day have finished and before the next matches within that matchday kick off, you can:

 Sub out a maximum of four players (unless they’ve been sent off), and replace them with any of your subs whose teams are yet to play within the matchday. Any players you sub out will score zero points for that matchday.

 Change your captain to another player from your squad whose team are yet to play. Your original captain’s double-points bonus will be lost, and your new captain’s score for that matchday will be doubled.

TRANSFERS

PhaseNumber of free transfers
Before tournament startsUnlimited
During group stage2 per matchday
Before round of 16Unlimited
Before quarter-finals3
Before semi-finals4
Before final5

For every transfer you make beyond your quota of free transfers, you’ll have four points deducted from your points total.

HOW DO PLAYERS SCORE POINTS?

There are several similarities between FPL scoring and the points on offer at Euro 2024.

The key differences include additional points for long-range goals, ball recoveries and winning penalties.

There’s also a deduction of one point for conceding a spot-kick.

The Player of the Match award takes the place of bonus points.

*When a penalty is awarded for handball, no points are awarded or deducted.
**Points only awarded when the player plays at least 60 minutes.

WHO GETS THE ASSIST?

Euro 2024 Fantasy Rules

A player gets points for an assist whenever he plays the final pass, cross, header or shot which leads to a goal. This also applies to set plays (corners, free-kicks and throw-ins).

It must be deemed an intentional pass to count as an assist. Miscontrolled touches or other unintentional passes that go straight to a team-mate are not counted.

If the attacking player’s pass takes a small deflection which doesn’t significantly change the direction of the pass, it will still be given as an assist.

Players also get points for an assist if a goal is scored on the rebound when they’ve shot against the post, bar, goalkeeper or defender.

They’ll also get points for an assist when their pass, shot or cross leads to an own goal. Players that win a penalty won’t get points for an assist – instead, they’ll get two points for winning the penalty.

Only one player can get points for an assist for any one goal.

When a goal is scored from a solo run or dribble, no player will be credited with the assist.

ARE THERE ANY CHIPS?

Euro 2024 Fantasy Rules

Euro 2024 Fantasy managers will have access to two chips during the tournament, the Wildcard and Limitless chip.

Wildcard

The Wildcard gives you the chance to change your squad as much as you like. When you play it you can make free unlimited transfers, and any players you transfer in will stay in your squad once that matchday has finished.

The normal rules for automatic substitutions, manual substitutions and captain changes still apply when playing your Wildcard, as well as formation constraints and the number of players you can pick from one team.

If you’ve already made transfers ahead of a matchday and you then play your Wildcard, the transfers you’ve made previously will be cancelled, along with any points deductions. To play your Wildcard, select ‘Activate wildcard’ and then confirm the transfers you’d like to make. This chip can be used only once. Once you’ve played it, it can’t be cancelled.

Limitless

Limitless gives you the chance to change your squad for one matchday only. When you play it, you get unlimited free transfers for that matchday with no budget restrictions. Once the matchday has finished, your squad will return to how it was before you played Limitless.

The normal rules for automatic substitutions, manual substitutions and captain changes still apply when playing Limitless, as well as formation constraints and the number of players you can pick from one team.

If you’ve already made transfers ahead of a matchday and you then play Limitless, the transfers you’ve made previously will be cancelled, along with any points deductions.

To play your Limitless, select ‘Activate Limitless’ and then confirm the transfers you’d like to make.

This chip can be used only once. Once you’ve played it, it can’t be cancelled.

    Hi all, is anything worth changing here for the bench boost?? 1FT1.1 ITB

    Is it worth moving Dalot or Bruno out for maybe Branthwaite or another mid?

    Petrovic/Verbruggen
    Dalot/Porro/Burn/Gabriel/Gvardiol
    Palmer/Son/Foden/Gordon/Bruno*
    Haaland/Jackson/isak

    Thanks 🙂

      If Bruno injured or going to miss one, that's a no brainer. Dalot would be dependent on whether you think transfer is best rolled into 38, but I'd probably say "yes" to Dalot to Branthwaite if Bruno passed fit (and "hell yes" if Casemiro is going to start CB again)

      1. Bumbaclot
        • 13 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Ok thanks, hopefully Bruno is fit and ill just do Dalot to Branth. If Bruno isnt fit whos hos best replacement do you think?

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          17 days, 5 hours ago

          Dunno. I had Havertz in Bruno's slot on my WC (and I have the same front eight as you) and thinking I should have stuck with that. That and Arsenal likely to score well Vs United and will need to beat Everton on last day. None of the other doublers that you have space for are really appealing

    I'm either going to punt on
    A. Muniz > Wilson, or
    B. Muniz & Gusto > Jackson & Burn -4

    Has to be this way due to already having Che/New ownership (Gordon, Isak, Palmer, Petr, Gusto). Thoughts?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      I like A - I guess it depends if his fitness is at the level where he can do two games but suspect he's back on pens. B could be worth it if Gusto out

      1. Willllsonnn!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Thanks, I'm tempted for the punt on A as a differential. Chasing 40pts in ML but also protecting 40pts to closest rival

      2. Willllsonnn!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Also Gusto is back but who knows how much game time he'll get..

    Trying to protect a rank inside top 1k, 17 points clear as of now. Will BB this week. Smartest move to stay in the top 1k ?

    A. Bradley>Branthwaite
    B. Bradley>Romero
    C. Bradley and KDB>Gvardiol and Richarlison /saka -4

    Petrovic
    Gabriel Porro Bradley
    Son Gordon KDB Foden Palmer
    Isak Haaland(C)

    Onana Jackson White Gabriel

    1. Bumbaclot
      • 13 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      Probably A

      1. drughi
        • 14 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Thinking gvardiol and saka with their high ownership around my rank are the biggest threats but at the same time dont wanna take a hit. You think brantwaite could hurt my rank, i guess there are some teams with him on BB

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      I think A - it's only one game but Romero isn't keeping a clean sheet against City so hardly like it's an extra game's bonus for him. No way on that hit - you could easily end up down

      1. drughi
        • 14 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Just worried about gvardiol, think his ownership will be around 60% around my parts but as you say it doesnt really make sense to lose KDB.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          17 days, 5 hours ago

          City love conceding so doubt they keep two clean sheets. Gvardiol is on a great run of returns but it's not sustainable really.

          1. drughi
            • 14 Years
            17 days, 5 hours ago

            yeah dilemma dilemma

  4. UKG
    • 13 Years
    17 days, 5 hours ago

    I have somehow ended up with BB and TC left to play. Presumably BB is best for the coming GW and TC on the final day.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      I think so.

      There's an argument for BB38 but you'd need to come through dgw37 unscathed.

      Good luck

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      Subject to team really

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      I was thinking that but tc seems to be the most powerful chip out of the two

      Who would you tc on the final day? Son maybe but then again it’s spurs and can see them losing there and doing a spurs thing so the tc seems more appealing during the dgw

      However I think with my team I might be forced into a bench boost myself barring any injuries. I’m kind of hoping some injuries or doubts pop up which stop me

    4. Bumbaclot
      • 13 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      Difficult to say really. Depends on your teams fixtures on the last day. If they look nice id TC haaland this week and BB next week

      1. Willllsonnn!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        Yeah you could easily get more points from Haaland TC this week than BB. Results may have an impact on 38 rotation though I guess

    5. Kevin and Perry go
      • 3 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      Probably if you have doublers on the bench.
      Haland tc sounds good though if you could get a good bench for 38 with fts maybe.
      3 of one 4 of the other probs best stick to your plan or gut as if you change your mind on final fence and it goes ski wiff youll have all summer to rue over it.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        17 days, 5 hours ago

        The one thing you should not be doing is dwelling on any fantasy football choices a few days after a week on Sunday.

        Hardly anyone in your mini league even acknowledges if you win it, so the last thing to do is beat yourself up for not winning a particular one.

        1. Kevin and Perry go
          • 3 Years
          17 days, 4 hours ago

          Of course, your right it’s just a game.
          I somehow managed to play BB on gw 1 by accident don’t know how.
          Didn’t stop me being slightly upset for a day or two.

    2FT and Schar and possibly Bruno injured. A rival this round has Burn so the obvious move of Schar to Burn isn't looking ideal.

    None of the other Newcastle defenders feel nailed enough. I'm tripled on City and Chelsea. Already have Porro (which is one more Spurs defender than I feel comfortable with) and Branthwaite. Can't afford White or Saliba (unless Bruno is out and removed to make funds). Don't want any Man United

    Really struggling with who to get. I guess it's probably Burn, Livramento or Romero as doublers or a SGW player....?

    1. notlob legin

      Everton defender?

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        17 days, 4 hours ago

        I have Branthwaite but I am thinking Tark could be a shout. Not liking having two eggs in an Everton shaped basket given SHU have been scoring, but it might be the best shout

        1. notlob legin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          17 days, 4 hours ago

          Scored in their last 3 but I think the double COULD be an option

  6. Sprinterdude
    • 3 Years
    17 days, 5 hours ago

    Best Chelsea defender to get?

    Cuc
    Gusto

    Any others to consider

  7. Calculated Risks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    17 days, 5 hours ago

    Not even had squad announcements for Euros so it's a bit jumping the gun

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      17 days, 5 hours ago

      They've got to keep the traffic flowing presumably for the business model.

      After all, most aren't subscribing here so ad revenue has to count.

    Gusto and Pedro to Emerson and Jackson -4 or just save FT?
