FTF Rules Fantasy Top Football

About the Rules

Rules of Fantasy Top Football are very similar to well-known Fantasy Premier League. In a description below we distinguish with a red color all major differences between these two games.

Selecting Your Squad

These rules are the same as FPL:

Squad Size

To join the game select a fantasy football squad of 15 players, consisting of:

  • 2 Goalkeepers
  • 5 Defenders
  • 5 Midfielders
  • 3 Forwards
Budget

The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.

Players Per Team

You can select up to 3 players from a single team.

Managing your squad

These rules are the same as FPL:

Choosing your starting 11

From your 15 player squad, select 11 players by the Gameweek deadline to form your team.

All your points for the Gameweek will be scored by these 11 players, however if one or more doesn't play they may be automatically substituted.

Your team can play in any formation providing that 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders and at least 1 forward are selected at all times.

Selecting a Captain and a Vice-Captain

From your starting 11 you nominate a captain and a vice-captain. Your captain's score will be doubled.

If your captain plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, the captain will be changed to the vice-captain.

If both captain and vice-captain play 0 minutes in a Gameweek, then no player's score will be doubled.

Prioritising Your Bench For Automatic Substitutions

Your substitutes provide cover for unforeseen events like injuries and postponements by automatically replacing starting players who don't play in a Gameweek.

Based on the priorities you assign, automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek as follows:

  • If your Goalkeeper plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.
  • If any of your outfield players play 0 minutes in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender).

Transfers

After selecting your squad you can buy and sell players in the transfer market. Unlimited transfers can be made at no cost until each deadline.

Player Prices

Player prices can change during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player prices do not change until the first gameweek starts.

Gameweeks

Each gameweek is built from 6 subjectively most interesting football matches of the weekend/Champions League's matchday.

Because generally each gameweek consists different football teams (with different players) it means that for each gameweek your squad has to be created over again. As a result you buy 15 players, select 11 players, formation and a captain before each deadline.

Deadlines

All changes to your team (starting 11, transfers, captain changes, substitiution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline in order to take effect for that set of matches.

Deadlines are subject to change and will be at the kick-off time in the first match of the Gameweek.

Notice that each (not Champions League) gameweek will contain the first Premier League match of the gameweek even if it will be regarded as a less attractive one. It means that just after FPL changes you can come and have an hour to update your squad in our game.

The list of deadlines you can find here.

Scoring

During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance. There are many similarities to Fantasy Premier League in scoring. Most important differences are pointed out with a red color below.

** Each goal conceded except the first one.

Clean sheets

A clean sheet is awarded for not conceding a goal whilst on the pitch and playing at least 60 minutes (excluding injury time).

If a player has been substituted when a goal is conceded this will do affect a clean sheet bonus (as well as his goals conceded points).

Red Cards

If a player receives a red card, they will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by their team.

Red card deductions include any points deducted for yellow cards.

Assists

Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the final pass before a goal is scored. An assist is awarded whether the pass was intentional (that it actually creates the chance) or unintentional (that the player had to dribble the ball or an inadvertent touch or shot created the chance).

If an opposing player touches the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, significantly altering the intended destination of the ball, then no assist is awarded. Should two opposing players touch the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, then no assist is awarded.

Rebounds

If a shot on goal is blocked by an opposition player, is saved by a goalkeeper or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored from the rebound, then an assist+ is awarded.

Own Goals

If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in his own net, then an assist+ is awarded.

Penalties and Free-Kicks

In the event of a penalty (but not a free-kick), the player earning the penalty is awarded penalty awarded points, not assist points.
