Rules and Scoring
As expected in a fantasy game, players will have a 100.0M budget with which to pick their 15-man squad – a starting XI and a four man bench.
There will be just 6 Gameweeks in this contest, with each round of Group Stage fixtures considered as its own Gameweek. There will be no Wildcard or any other chips available, as this contest has far fewer rounds than our season-long games.
The rules and scoring is almost identical to our €1M season-long game, with one key difference being that players are allocated 2 free transfers per Gameweek rather than 1. Each additional transfer used will cost minus 4 points. Receiving 2 free transfers each Gameweek also means that players can hold up to 4 free transfers at any given time, so, for example, if a player used just one of their two free transfers in the first gameweek, they would have three free transfers waiting to be used the following Gameweek.
Players are priced in accordance with match odds. Player prices will not change like they do in our €1M season-long game. This allows managers to budget for the weeks ahead, without having to worry about unexpected price changes leaving you short on cash for your planned transfers.
Players can make unlimited changes to their Gameweek 1 squad up until the first match kicks off (October 20, 18:55 CET). From Gameweek 2 onwards, however, each Gameweek dealine will be 90 minutes before the first match kicks off.
For those playing our €1M season-long game, the scoring system in this contest will be identical. However, if you aren’t, don’t worry – our scoring system is very similar to that of most other fantasy football games like FPL, with just a few subtle differences.
Examples of these differences include midfielders and attackers being awarded an extra point for playing the full match without being substituted, as well as players being awarded or deducted 1 “impact” point depending on if their team is winning or losing the match in the period the player is on the pitch.
Players are also deducted 2 points for giving away a foul or penalty which directly leads to a goal, and goalkeepers are awarded 0.5 points for each save made. There are also no bonus points awarded.
