Rules of Fantasy Club World Cup 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.
These rules are the same as FPL:
To join the game select a fantasy football squad of 15 players, consisting of:
The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.
You can select up to 5 players from a single team.
These rules are the same as FPL:
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.
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.
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:
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 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.
Fantasy Club World Cup consists of 3 gameweeks. The list of gameweeks you can find here.
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.
The list of deadlines you can find here.

Penalty shootout (after extra time) is not included in scoring!
* Only when played 60 min or more.
** Each goal conceded except the first one.
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).
If a player receives a red card, he will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by his team.
Red card deductions include points deducted for two yellow cards.
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.
If a shot on goal is saved by a goalkeeper or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored from the rebound, then an assist+ is awarded.
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.
In the event of a penalty (but not a free-kick), the player earning the penalty is awarded penalty awarded points, not assist points.
