SCORING SYSTEM

Player Scoring

The following rules are used for determining the in- game points achieved by a player in any given session.

 #  RULE DESCRIPTION  GOALKEEPER  DEFENDER  MIDFIELDER  FORWARD
01  For playing up to 60 minutes 1 1
02   For playing 60 minutes or more 2
03  For each goal scored
04  For each goal assist 5
05  For a clean sheet 3
06   For every 3 shots saved 2
07   For each penalty saved
08   For each penalty miss -2  -2  -2 
09   For every 3 goals conceded -1  -1 
10   For a yellow card (if no red card exists) -1  -1  -1  -1 
11   For red card -3  -3  -3  -3 
12   For each own goal -2  -2  -2  -2 
13   For every 3 corners won 2
14   For every 3 shots off target -2  -2 
15   For every 3 fouls won
16   For every 3 fouls committed -1  -1  -1 
17  For every 2 offsides provoked 

 

For each fantasy team, the total score is calculated as the sum of the scores of the selected players.

Points are awarded for the normal duration of a match, stoppage/ injury time as well as for extra time. Penalty shoot-outs do not contribute to scoring.

For every fantasy team, a captain and a vice-captain can be set. If the captain plays at least one minute, his score shall be doubled. If the captain does not play in the GameWeek, the vice captain’s score shall be doubled instead. Watch out - negative scores are doubled as well!

GENERAL RULES

Squad Formation Rules

A fantasy team consisting of eleven players must contain:

  • 1 goalkeeper
  • 3 – 6 defenders
  • 2 – 6 midfielders
  • 1 – 3 forwards

A maximum of four players from the same club/ team can be selected.

Tie-breaks

Where the same fantasy score is achieved, the following tie-break rules shall apply in the following order of priority.

  1. Most points earned due to goals scored in the particular GameWeek.
  2. Fewest points lost due to goals conceded in the particular GameWeek.
  3. Fewest points lost due to yellow and red cards in the particular GameWeek.
  4. Most overall minutes played by the fantasy team in the particular GameWeek.

Tie-Break points are calculated on a 'team-level' and no double points are awarded to the captain or vice-captain of a team.

In the unlikely circumstance that the comparison is again tied after these rules have been applied, individual stakes will be refunded or distributed as specified in the bet types section.

BET TYPES

Classic / Private Tournaments

Pick your Best 11 and enter your team into a Tournament contest or invite your friends into a Private Tournament. The more players in a contest, the higher the potential winnings.

You can follow the action through the contest’s leaderboard which updates live during the games. Number of winners and potential winnings are also shown there.

Teams can be formed and entered into a contest at any time during the Gameweek, provided that the players selected, have not yet played their matches.

A single team can be placed in multiple contests and multiple teams can be placed in a single contest.

In the event that two or more contestants are tied on the same points total, tie-break rules apply

Fantasy Coupon

Every week, contestants can bet on the performance of teams against their match opponents, but forget about the final score – this one’s settled on fantasy points and the teams' real performance. Based on the upcoming fixture list in any given GameWeek, simply bet on a team to outshine its opponent.

Check form, analyse the odds, but remember – it’s the fantasy football points that decide whether you win or lose!

You can wager any amount. Our minimum stake is £1. Winnings will be split in proportion to the initial stake.

In the event that both teams are tied on in-game points, goal difference, discipline and total time played, all stakes will be refunded in full.

Fantasy Derbies

Contestants can bet on the performance of teams against their fiercest rivals every week, without the two teams in question playing each other in real life that week. So even if Man City are playing Stoke and Man Utd are playing Leicester, you can still pretend that it is Manchester derby weekend! After both teams have played their respective matches, fantasy points are awarded and contestants backing the team with the most in-game points take home the winnings.

You can wager any amount. Our minimum stake is £1. Winnings will be split in proportion to the initial stake.

An entry must be made before either team has played during the GameWeek.

In the event that both teams are tied on in-game points, goal difference, discipline and total time played, all stakes will be refunded in full.

Most Valuable Player (MVP)

Bet on which individual player will score the most fantasy points. At the end of the GameWeek, whoever backed the player with the most in-game points win the pot – it’s as simple as that!

You can place a bet at any point during the Gameweek but you can only select players that have not yet played their matches.

You can wager any amount. Our minimum stake is £1. Winnings will be split in proportion to the initial stake.

In the event that two or more players are tied on the same fantasy points total, winnings are split for all of them.

1-on-1 Challenge – Tournament / Fantasy Team / MVP

With 1-on-1 Challenge, you can compete directly against your friends, pitting the performance of your fantasy teams and fantasy version of favourite clubs and players against mates, family or colleagues for pre-agreed stakes.

Pick your team or player and invite your friend to a Challenge for up to a stake you select. The winner takes it all!

Until the opponent accepts the bet, it can be cancelled at any point and any stake wagered will be fully refunded. Once the invited opponent has accepted the proposed bet, the bet is considered final and cannot be cancelled.

The opponent can accept the challenge for up to the amount proposed in the invitation.

If a proposed bet is not accepted before the start of the last match of the GameWeek, the bet will be automatically cancelled and any stake will be fully refunded.

In the event that two players have tied, the amounts wagered by contestants are fully refunded without any commission being applied.

Fantasy Coupon / Fantasy Derbies / MVP

In contests where player bet on a specific result, winners split the pool based on the amount wagered by each one of them, in proportion to the initial stake.

Example

10 x £10 bets for Chelsea to beat Arsenal (in terms of fantasy points)
8 x £10 bets for Arsenal to beat Chelsea (in terms of fantasy points)
So the total pools would be £100 for Chelsea and £80 for Arsenal.

If Chelsea achieves a higher fantasy score than Arsenal, each player who backed Chelsea receives a tenth of the total funds (£180) minus a 10% commission.

Commission x Total pool x Indiv. Stake ratio = Winnings
(1-1/10) x (£100+£80) x (£10/£100) = (9/10)x(£180)x(1/10)
          = £16.20

In instances where the winnings equal or fall below the initial stake, no commission is taken.
