Following on from our introductory article to FanTeam’s €250,000 season-long Fantasy Premier League game, let’s take a look at the breakdown of the huge cash prizes on offer you can win.
To give you a quick overview – FanTeam are running a season-long fantasy football game that follows an almost identical structure to the Fantasy Premier League game we all love and play, religiously.
The similarities to FPL are so striking that we believe every FPL manager will do very well on FanTeam, and could even run their FanTeam side alongside their FPL team.
There are some extremely minor differences, but we’ll cover those in upcoming articles.
Firstly, let’s talk about the prize money and what you could win for an entry fee of just €25 – which, in reality, is a fairly typical cost of an FPL cash league at work or between friends.
Except this time, there’s €250,000 up for grabs, so let’s delve into the details before we lose you…
The Prize Pool Breakdown
The money is split across 3 periods – overall, monthly and weekly.
As you would expect, the bulk of the prize pool is dedicated to the overall spots, with €209,000 in total assigned for anyone who finishes in the top 1,250 places.
To put that into context – there are only 350 entries at the time of writing (July 17th), and the €250,000 prize pool is a guaranteed payout – regardless of how many of us enter…
First place wins an astonishing €50,000 while second and third take home €25,000 and €12,000.
The top 5 will scoop an eye watering €101,000 between them, with a further €15,500 shared out amongst the rest of the top 10.
Finish in the top 20 and you’re guaranteed a minimum pay day of €1,000 – it’s another minimum payout €500 for the top 40 and it’s even a guaranteed €100 if you’re in the top 200 overall, come the end of the season.
Here’s a full breakdown of the overall prizes:
Next are the monthly prizes. These run from August to April inclusive, with May reserved for the big payouts detailed above.
There’s €2,600 up for grabs every month across 9 months, totalling €23,400.
A cool €1,000 is given to anyone who proves to be the best in any given month (as well as €500 for 2nd, €250 for 3rd and €100 for 4th), plus a further €50 for anyone else in the top 19 managers for the month.
Here’s the MOTM payout breakdown:

FanTeam are even offering cash prizes for the top 3 managers every single gameweek. There’s €17,100 to be won here too, the money just keeps on coming!
If you top the weekly leaderboard you’ll net yourself €250, while 2nd and 3rd will in turn pick up €150 and €50.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there’s €500 left over. This is reserved for the highest gameweek score across the season and will be paid out when Gameweek 38 ends.
So, there’s your €250,000 and all the different ways you can claim your piece of it. Not bad for just €25, is it?
