How to play?

If you are a seasoned veteran at playing Fantasy Premier League (FPL), you are already a pro at the rules and points scoring as there is very little difference. You have your 15-man squad with a £100m budget, where your captain scores double points. As well as the one free transfer per gameweek. You can make unlimited changes as normal up until gameweek 1 starts.

Also similar is the limit of three players per team in the PL can be included in your squad and each transfer will cost you four points.

What are the differences?

There have been a few amendments made to the gameplay compared to if you were playing the usual FPL game:

  • Wildcards – the only chip, with one to use by gameweek 19 and the other from gameweek 20
  • Saving up free transfers – this is LIMITLESS, not capped at just the two
  • Gameweek deadlines – amend your team right up to kick off each gameweek
  • Price changes – these will not begin until week three

A major change is that there will be no bonus points. Instead, alternative routes to success have been added:

  • Completing a match – one point will now be awarded for midfielders and forwards completing a match
  • Goalkeepers that score – 8 points instead of 6
  • Save points – instead of every three stops, 0.5 will be added each time
  • Shots on target – forwards get 0.3, midfielders get 0.4, defenders 0.6 and goalkeepers 1.0 are also considered

Alongside is also impact points, +0.3 awarded if a player’s time on the field sees the team win. Alternatively, if they see a loss this would be -0.3.

Conceding a penalty will see you lose two points, as well as conceding a free kick.
