There will be no wildcards available in this tournament.
The maximum amount you can spend on players is 110M when the season starts. As some players will rise or drop in price, your budget might increase or decrease correspondingly if you have them in your team.
We assume that any postponed match will be played at some point during the season. Such matches will be put into a future gameweek that corresponds with the new starting date. If a match is abandoned mid-game, and not completed at a later date, the players will keep the points they accumulated up to the point of the interruption. If an interrupted match is re-scheduled to be finished at a later date, the players will keep accumulating points as normal.
PLAYER PRICE CHANGES
There will be adjustments to player prices during the game. Price changes will happen on the first Thursday of the month. Price changes will be based on expected performance in the upcoming 30 days.
Changes can be made up to the start of the first match in each gameweek.
