It feels like it was only yesterday that Portugal were holding the Euro 2016 trophy and prior to that, Leicester City bathing in EPL Premiership glory.
Believe it or not, the European Football seasons are about to kick off!
You may or may not know that recently the English Premier League underwent a rebranding (see below) giving the whole organisation a slick, modern new feel.
This very feel and style has been transformed to the website and luckily for us, their fantasy product.
https://fantasy.premierleague.com is the place to go to participate in all of the action this year.
The interface is slick and easy to use, players can sign up in a matter of minutes.
The prizes are solid without being overly enticing (see below) but the main reason we are playing this year is for some good fun, free entertainment and to compliment what we will be doing with EPL Daily Fantasy on sites such as Moneyball, FanDuel and DraftKings.
Once you’ve signed up, picking your team for the season is easy.
You’ve got 100 million pounds to work with and the players are priced fairly allowing for a ‘balanced’ lineup to be constructed.
You select a captain (Lukaku) and also have the option to activate three chips that for this season are: All Out Attack, Bench Boost and Triple Captain. This is a nice little touch that adds another dimension to playing.
This is a nice little touch that adds another dimension to playing. Each chip can only be used once per season. So choose wisely!
Further to that there is also a bonus points system whereby the best three players in any given match will receive bonus points, once again, a nice touch!
Once your initial squad is assembled you can make any formation provided that at least three defenders are selected in your team.
You can change your team name, team kit and the team you support all from the My Team page.
The information provided on each player is excellent with up to the minute injury updates and stats all delivered in a nice clean way (see below).
All in all the EPL fantasy experience is a very good one and one that we highly recommend. The season starts this Saturday night Australian time so now is the time to get to it!
Good luck and we hope you all enjoy another season of the beautiful game in England.
