Fancy your ability as a manager? Enter our Fantasy Premier League mini-league

posted in: News

More than 30,000 New Zealand fans entered the biggest football competition in the world last year — and it’s time to pit your wits against them again.

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) attracted more than nine million players from around the world for the 2021-22 English Premier League season and at least as many are expected to enter for the new season beginning on August 6.

FPL is a free-to-enter online game in which you pick 15 players, within a budget of £100 million, and then manage your team week-to-week.

You get to decide your starting line-up, your captain and can make transfers. Points are gained by your team when your players score, claim clean sheets or assists – and they drop points when they concede goals or pick up cautions.

It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s a great way to follow the EPL each week.
