Fanteam celebrates the Premier League return in style with a €100,000 Fantasy Premier League contest on opening weekend
Earlier last week, our good friends at Fanteam.com announced that their Daily Fantasy Premier League contests were now available for the opening week of Premier League fixtures from Wednesday 17th to Monday 22nd of June, will exceed €320,000 in GUARANTEED prize money.
Their feature Main Event of the weekend will be the €100,000 guaranteed prize pool contest, which has a mouth-watering 1st place of €20,000.
This epic 7-a-side fantasy contest will cover the 4 Premier League games being played on Saturday the 20th of June, kicking off with Watford vs. Leicester City at 13:30 CET, and will be played in their new Pursuit Mode format.
For those of you that like to play Full Round classic mode contests – they have something special for you as well.
Kicking off at 19:00 CET on Friday the 17th of June, they’ve also created a Premier League Full Round contest, with a €25,000 guaranteed prize pool – covering all 10 Gameweek 30 fixtures.
Oh – and there’s €5,000 first place prize!
There are also single match contests available, such as Man City vs. Arsenal on the 17th of June, which has a spectacular €20,000 guaranteed prize pool – or Spurs vs. Manchester United on the 19th, where a €30,000 prize pool is up for grabs.
How to Enter
For those of you that are new to Fanteam, all of the aforementioned contests can be found in our Lobby, under the Premier League tab.
To enter their Gameweek 30 €100,000 Main Event, be sure to register for your free Fanteam account here before locating the contest in their Lobby and then click on the €20 Play button and begin selecting your team.
The Gameweek 30 €100,000 contest is a 1-day event and will be played in their new Pursuit format, where the cheaper the players you pick, the more bonus points you’ll receive as a head start.
Put together your team of 7 players from the 4 Saturday Premier League games only, with a virtual budget of 83.7M to spend.
You can select a maximum of 3 forwards, 5 midfielders or 5 defenders, in whichever 7-man formation you want for your lineup.
You’re also not limited to 3 players per team – so, if you wish to load up on 7 Arsenal players, for example, you’re free to do so. You don’t even have to select a goalkeeper!
Finally, choose a captain for your team – he will earn double (2x) points and a vice-captain, who will earn 1.5x points.
Enter your Team
Once you’re happy with your 7-man team, click the yellow enter tournament button towards the top right of the page.
You can still make unlimited changes to your lineups before the 13.30 CET deadline, when the first match of the contest kicks off, so be sure to keep an eye out for that all-important early team-news and any injuries.
For those of you looking to play for lower stakes, they also have a €7,000 guaranteed prize pool contest, which is just €2 to enter and will run alongside the €100,000 Main Event, covering the exact same fixtures and format. This too can be found in the lobby at Fanteam.com.
