Want to manage a football team with all of the world’s top players? Well, now you can and manage players like Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar, and Suarez, to name but a few…
FanTeam are bringing Champions League fantasy football back to our lives with a bang and offering a €250,000 guaranteed prize pool contest, which will cover the Group Stages only.
A mouth-watering €50,000 will be paid to the first-place winner and finishing in the top 1744 places will guarantee you a cash pay-out.
But be warned – there are only 15,000 seats available, so it’s advisable not to leave it too late before entering.
The game rules are simple and closely follow their €1M Fantasy Premier League game format and our beloved Fantasy Premier League game.
You will need to build a a squad of 15 players using your 100M budget, but like FPL, you can select a maximum of 3 players from any one team.
Unlike their season-long Premier League game, however, there are no wildcards and no price changes in this tournament.
It’s also worth noting that you will have 2 free transfers available each Gameweek and any additional transfer will cost -4 points. It’s possible to save up to a maximum of 4 transfers.
You can make unlimited changes to your Gameweek 1 team until the first match kicks off at 17:55 BST on the 20th of October, 2020.
Please note that from Gameweek 2 onwards, the deadline will be 90 minutes before the first match kicks off – so don’t get caught out!
For anyone who plays the FanTeam 1M season-long Premier League game and FPL, the scoring system will be very familiar to you.
A goal scored is worth between 4 and 8 points, depending on the player’s position, whilst 3 points are awarded for an assist or fantasy assist.
A clean sheet earns 4 points for a defender or goalkeeper and 1 point for a midfielder, providing the player has played at least 60 minutes.
As you’d expect, yellow and red cards are penalised, as are missed penalties and own goals.
Additionally, a player receives -2 points for causing a penalty, or a free kick which leads to a direct goal, so try and avoid the clumsy centre-backs (no names mentioned)
Players are awarded 1 point if their team “wins” during the period they’re on the pitch, 0 if they “draw” and -1 point if they “lose”.
A full breakdown of our scoring system can be found on the FanTeam site and via the image above.

Finishing in the top 24 will guarantee you €1,000 in winnings, from your €25 entry.
