Fanteam offers a €250,000 Fantasy Premier League Season Tournament

Dear Community, as the pre-season is getting more interesting and you are already starting your analysis of the prices and fixtures, we have some big news for you. Our new £500 Regulars League sponsor, Fanteam, is offering a Premier League season game with a prize pot of an incredible €250,000.

If that already sounds interesting to you, just wait for the following information. The first prize receives €50,000 and to be in the top 20 would still grant you a minimum payout of €1,500 (and that is ignoring the additional weekly and monthly prizes). Now you might think that the entry fee will be extremely high, but you can get a chance for life-changing money with only €25. (Yes, we couldn’t believe it at first either). We will come to the prize structure in more detail later.

The best thing besides the prizes is however, how similar the game is compared to the original Fantasy Premier league game. This should allow the experienced players an easy transition and you can easily manage a Fanteam team next to your Premier League team, without much additional work.

We have already been co-operating with Fanteam some years ago (when they were called Woofbet) and are happy to come together again now. The guys over there are really nice and we can wholeheartedly recommend their platform, which we have been testing in the last few weeks for you.

A Fantastic first impression – Premier League Season 19/20 on Fanteam
The season tournament on Fanteam is well designed. Everything is set up so that even beginners can easily get started. The buy-in prizes are mentioned clearly, and no hidden fees are applied.

We, as frequent FPL players feel quickly at home here – and it really seems like the games are identical. However, some minor changes (besides the nice prize money to be won) do exist. So, let’s quickly jump into that.

Prize Structure

As stated, Fanteam has a very different prize structure. For this year, they raised the stakes significantly and offer a minimum guarantee of 250.000€ distributed among the players. The money is spread among the top 15%, which gives even non-professional players a good chance to recover their buy-on. The first prize with 50.000€ is very tempting and should be possible to reach for one of our community – we will take care of that by providing you continuously with insider information. When considering that the entry is capped at 12.000, the chances to win this tournament are significantly higher than the official pl game with several million entries.

Here are the most important facts for you shortly summarised:
– €250,000 minimum guaranteed in prizes
– €50,000 for the first prize
– 1,250 different prizes in total!

This translates into the following prize structure;

Additional Side-Events
Fanteam offers additional chances to receive prizes appear on a weekly and monthly basis. So even though you might have fallen behind in the overall tournament, you can still win big by showing strong performances in a shorter time frame.
A manager of the month award exists, with a prize of €1,000 and a manager of the game week award with a prize of €400 given out every week. See the tables below for complete information.

Fanteam’s specific PL Season 19/20 Rules
As previously stated, the rules are very similar to you FPL freaks and only some small details should be noted.

Firstly, the scoring system has no bonus points. Instead an “impact” factor is applied, which awards players with a negative or positive point, depending on whether his team was winning or losing with him on the pitch.

Secondly, Fanteam has no chips system, as you might be familiar with. They prefer to keep things more simple. However, they do have two wildcards, which can be used to change the entire team.

Thirdly, price changes on Fanteam appear at “random” times. To be precise, they appear, when a dramatic increase or decrease in demand happens. This is different to the fixed time frames for price changes on the regular FPL.

Fourthly, the sell and buy prices are identical throughout the season. There is no “tax” applied on a price increase when you sell a player, like on FPL. This means that if a player is worth 7.M and increases to 7.5M, then 7.5M is the amount to sell and buy this player.
The entire rules can be found by clicking here… FANTEAM RULES

Looking ahead
If you enjoy the official FPL game, but want the chance to win a bit of money down the road, this is the best option for you. The best aspect is that you can simply copy your FPL team and play it on Fanteam, since the prices and the design of the game are so similar.

We, at FantasyFootball247 are already loving Fanteam’s season game and can’t wait for the season to start. While we will of course still focus on the official Premier League season game, we will from now on also cover some content related to Fanteam. If you have any questions, or want us to focus on specific content, please let us know.

    Hi Guys,
    What are the chances of Zinchenko and Pope being regular starters?
    I see FF Fix are rating Benteke really high on points for first 6 weeks…don’t think I have the guts to go for him, but what do you think?

    • 19.1
      Smash says:

      I’m fairly confident on both. Heaton being heavily linked to Villa so not expecting him to be around. Zinchenko I’m expecting to be fine Angelino don’t look good and will take time to adjust. Mendy is injured again anyway.

      As for Benteke it’s definitely a wait and see he’s not scored goals for a very long time and if Zaha is not around they will create even less

    • 19.2

      @Bees, feels like deja vu. We had an earlier discussion, well no so much a discussion but more a questioning of someone’s sanity over having Benteke on their team. I am not going to say you crazy, but you might be. 😉

      On a serious note, I probably would not have him and not completely sure why they rate him so high, in particular when I assume they don’t rate his fixtures. It is tricky to pay too much attention to that, having said that, if you insist on a forward over another mid or defender, he is probably one of the better ones at that price point, but I repeat, don’t think I have him.

      Zinchenko should be the starter for a while and by the sounds of it, looks like Burnley is trying to sell Pope’s competition and if that is the case that certainly should make it more clear cut in his favour as the #1.

      Thanks Mito and Smash. I may just go for Pope and Zinch then. Was not planning on getting Ben, just asking opinions. Have not quite lost my mind yet lol.
      Cheers!

      They’ve probably rated Benteke highly because of his fixtures. I can think of worse 6m options.

      Les Chas says:

      For Zincheko I think he will start since Mendy has a knee injury. But Pep bought Angelino as back up. He has not shown much since its early days in the preseason.

    Hey all if you still have a spot open and have a twitter account, here is a chance to jump in a league. The twitter account is run by Swirly who writes for the site and tweets the articles for the site.

    Here are the details on how to join, very simple stuff.

    Do the players cost more this year? You used to afford 3 premium mids or forwards.

    Or is it just that the premium defenders seems more important now, and they are stealing funds?

    • 21.1

      You think so, have been reading that a lot. Let’s compare the current lot of teams we are seeing to the FF247 site team for GW1 last season.

      What do you think?

      Click on image to enlarge:

      • Keepers were 8.5 combined
        Shaw was 5.0, Robbo and Mendy were 6.0
        Salah 13.0, Eriksen 9.5, Richie was 6.5 and Cairney 5.0
        King was 6.5, Kun 11.0 and Firmino 9.5

        Bench was 4.0, 4.5, 4.0, 4.5

        Technically that is only 2 premium players with Salah and Kun. Bench was cheap as can be and the defence was ok, but it wasn’t as expensive as the defences seem to be this year. Yet we still only had 2 premium players.

      • Kane and Salah this season are .5 cheaper than Salah and Kun were last.
        KdB this season is the same price as Eriksen last season.

        The difference lies where you suspected, the premium defenders are stealing funds, but if someone went with an older approach, perhaps only one premium defender, one 5.0 and say two 4.5s and 4.0 the midfield would be more stacked. Plus forwards don’t feel as important this season and they usually took up one or two of our premium spots.

        I remember two seasons ago where people contemplated going with Kun, Kane and Lukaku from the off, that was 3 forwards over 10.0

      • Les Chas says:

        Mendy? he is injured
        king has not been given game time don’t know why?
        but the rest of the squad seems decent.

    Hey guys,

    Currently got this team, but unsure of 3 players:- grealish ( or any other 6.0 mid) kdb and king.

    Choices are

    1) As it is
    2) 6.0 mid with b Silva and Wilson
    3) 4.5mid with Wilson and Ken

    Thoughts anyone?

    Cheers

    Here my 2nd draft. If I went with this I’d need an early wild card, teams built around sterling, Salah and robbo. Going for a pick and stick with the keep, so will be ederson or alisonsmile

    Rosco says:

    Like everyone else I’m currently rocking double pool at the back. As per Mito’s post earlier it’s sucking the funds out of the rest of the team. Given that most years the strategy of trying to replicate last season’s player picks rarely if ever pans out are we all falling into the same trap once more with this approach? Just throwing it out there! wink

    • 24.1

      Possibly, but those fixtures from LFC and City are very hard to ignore.

    • 24.2
      AllanBrallan says:

      Can’t ignore 200+ points at 6.5 – 7.0. That costs 11.0 – 12.5 on any other position..

      But this season might not be as great, but it’ll probably be pretty good anyway.

      Like salah last season, when he lost his magic and ”only” took 259 points after his record season with 303…

    • 24.3
      Kralin says:

      I don’t know if it’s a trap, more a way of getting a reasonably strong side out early. Liverpool, City and Everton have good fixtures (and finished last season strongly) so it seems logical to load up there. As millions of others have said, there’s gold in those (defenders’) boots.

      I have little doubt all our sides will look very different come GW3 – especially if Chelsea start well, etc. I’m partly planning for that – who I anticipate will just be passing through my side.
