A full breakdown of our £100,000 Second Chance Season Game Rules are provided below in both text and an info-graphic. If you have any questions regarding our Game Rules, please reach out and we’ll be happy to help any questions you might have.
The contest will start in Gameweek 22 (January 14th, 2022 at 8pm GMT) and will run through to the end of the season – Gameweek 38.
For this contest, you will create a team of 11 players only, within an 80M budget, and can select a maximum of 3 players from one Premier League side.
You will have 1 free transfer each gameweek and can have an unlimited number of saved (rolled) transfers. EG: if you don’t make any transfers for 3 weeks, you’ll have 3 saved transfers to use, whenever you like.
Player price changes will occur in line with our £1,000,000 season game and will happen within 48 hours of the end of each gameweek. A player’s sell price will always be the same as their live buy price. However, until Gameweek 22 has kicked off, you will not be able to profit from the buying and selling players between the launch of this game and the Gameweek 22 deadline – this is to ensure fairness for anyone joining during the 8-week period of the contest being open.
You will receive one Wildcard which can be used from Gameweek 23 onwards.
There will be one week of Late Registration for this contest, where late entrants will receive 95% of the average Gameweek 22 score.
Our Safety Net feature will apply for this tournament, which for those of you that are new to FanTeam, can find the information below.
In this tournament, our Safety Net feature applies as you’re only required to own a team of 11 players, with no substitutes bench.
If a player you own does not start, (eg: you own Salah, but he starts on the bench), he will automatically be replaced at kick-off by the next priced player from the same position and club – which for the purpose of this example, would be Sadio Mane.
If Salah comes on after 60 minutes, you would still keep your replacement (Sadio Mane) for that Gameweek and any points he (Mane) scores – you would receive zero points from Salah for that Gameweek as he was replaced by Mane for the entire Gameweek.
Please note, you would still own Salah the following Gameweek – Safety Net changes only apply for a Gameweek and are not transfers.
If a player you own doesn’t have a replacement starting player from the same position that is the same price or cheaper, you will receive no Safety Net replacement. A good example here would be Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
A full breakdown of the Scoring System for our £100,000 Second Chance game is provided below in the info-graphic. The scoring system is identical to our £1,000,000 Premier League season game.
PRIZE POOL BREAKDOWN
A full breakdown of our second chance £100,000 game prize pool breakdown is provided in the info-graphic below. We want the reward for a half season’s good work to be as much as possible, this is why we will reward the top 4000 places
Late Registration will be available for one week after the start of Gameweek 22. This means Late Registration teams can be entered up to the Gameweek 23 deadline, and they will begin scoring points from that gameweek onwards.
Late entries will receive 95% of the average score from Gameweek 22. For example, if you enter a late registration team for the start of Gameweek 23, you will receive 95% of the average score in Gameweek 22.
The deadline for making transfers & team changes for late registration entries will be 90 minutes before the first Gameweek 23 kick-off.
We wish all of you the best luck in the £100K game – let’s hope you can turn a free ticket into £20,000!
