The beautiful game is back and we’re buzzing! for it. This year, we have decided to create our very own Fantasy Football League so that everyone can get involved AND win some top prizes along the way. Here’s everything you need to know:

What Is Fantasy Football?

For those of you who don’t know what Fantasy Football is, look no further. Firstly, you’ll need to register here. Then, get set to step into the ultimate role as Fantasy Manager, pick a squad of real-life players who score points for your team based on their real-life performances in their matches.

To play Fantasy Football you’ll need to pick a team of 11 or sometimes a squad of 15 real-life players or more, within a budget of £100m, that will represent you each week of the season. Over each of those weeks they will score you points which will add and subtract to a total that will be compared to other teams in your mini league and/or in the Fantasy Game world overall with prizes at stake.

Do I Need To Play In A League?

The game can be played solo, with managers pitching their team against all other registered managers in the game. However, the preferred option is to enter your team in a private mini-league with friends or colleagues. We however, suggest joining our team as you can be in with winning some top prizes along the way! Join our Fantasy Football Team.

How Do I Score Points?

Fantasy Football isn’t just about winning games, there are a few different scoring systems. Such as:

Playing matches – simple this one. If a player plays for his real-life team he’ll earn you some points for your fantasy team. Often a player will need to start the match to earn these points rather than appear as a sub.

Scoring goals
 – self-explanatory. The more goals the player scores as an individual in his real-life team, the more points he’ll score for your fantasy team.

Keeping clean sheets
 – Players who take part in a match and in which their real-life team prevent the opposition from scoring will score points for your fantasy team. This method of scoring is normally only available for the defenders and goalkeeper in your fantasy team.

Earning Assists
 – Players who make a pass which then leads directly to a goal scored by their real-life team can earn points for your fantasy team. By no means a default scoring method, this is included in roughly half of the Fantasy Games available.

Playing Well 
– Some Fantasy Games allow your players to score points for good performances in their real-life team. So if a player wins Man of the Match in real-life, he could earn your extra points in addition to those mentioned above. It’s an arbitary scoring method and one that can cause some controversy given that the judging of such matters is often very objective.

We might be stating the obvious here, but of course, you can also lose points through;

Conceding Goals – Players who take part in a match and in which their real-life team concedes a goal to the opposition can lose a point for your fantasy team for every goal they concede. Like clean sheets, this normally only applies to the defenders and goalkeeper in your fantasy team. Players can also lose points for scoring own goals in some Fantasy Games.

Getting Booked – Players who earn yellow and red cards for their real-life team can lose points for your fantasy team. Like assists this is by no means a standard rule but is popular amongst many Fantasy Games.

Don’t forget to keep on top of your team and use your free transfer every week. Or you can take a risk and save them up each week, meaning you can use 2, 3 or more transfers at a time! You’ll also receive a selection of chips such as; Triple Captain, Free Hit and Triple Captain, so make sure you’re using these benefits too.

Right, now, on to the good stuff! Our prizes. If you join the scotts Menswear Fantasy Football League, you could be in with the chance of winning a £500 gift card to spend in store or online as an end of season prize. We will also be giving away a whole host of prizes over the course of the Premier League for manager of the month and the highest scorers throughout.
