VIDEO
Managers of our UCL Group Stage game have the chance to choose a star-studded line-up from Europe’s most elite talent. If you’ve ever wanted to own both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in your fantasy side – now you can!
Once again, FanTeam will be offering a guaranteed minimum prize pool of €250,000 for this contest, with a top prize of €50,000 to the winner.
There is a maximum of 15,060 seats available, however, the €250,000 prize pool is guaranteed, even if the contest does not fill.
The top 1,250 ranked entries at the end of the contest receive a pay-out between €40 and €50,000, depending on the exact finishing position.
Entry is just €20 (£16.80) per team, and each user can enter a maximum of 100 teams.
Managers will have a 100.0M budget with which to pick their 11-man team – there are no bench players. Pep roulette can be dealt with by our brilliant Safety Net feature!
There are no price changes and no late registration available for this tournament.
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 are almost identical to our £1M season-long game, with one key difference being that managers 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 1 of their two free transfers in the first Gameweek, they would have 3 free transfers waiting to be used the following Gameweek.
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 team up until the first match kicks off (September 14, 18:45 CET/17:45BST). From Gameweek 2 onwards, however, each Gameweek deadline will be 90 minutes before the first match kicks off.
For those playing our £1M Fantasy Premier League 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 forwards being awarded an extra point for playing the full match, as well as players being awarded or deducted 0.3 “impact” points depending on if their team is winning or losing the match in the period the player is on the pitch.
Shots on target are also rewarded with 0.6 points for defenders, and 0.4 points for midfielders and forwards. Points for a shot on target are not awarded when a goal is scored from the shot, either if the player is the scorer or is awarded the assist.
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.
