Let’s face it – some of our Dream Team Season teams are beyond repair.

But there’s still hope for everyone out there – let us introduce you to Dream Team Weekender.


How does Dream Team Weekender work?

Well, like the normal Season game, Weekender is completely free to play with a total prize pot over the entire season of £300,000 to dish out to the weekly winners.

The main game rules are:

  • Pick a Dream Team of 7 players (no limit to the amount of players you can pick from one club e.g. could pick all Man City or Chelsea players)
  • Must pick one goalkeeper, two defenders, two midfielders and two strikers
  • Managers are allowed to pick one team for each Game Period (per weekend) – and must create a new team for each Game Period to enter
  • No team budget limitations – all players at any prices are available to pick
  • Only involves Saturday and Sunday games
  • Points scoring runs exactly the same way as the Season game


What are the perks of playing Dream Team Weekender?

Think of Weekender a bit like your regular accumulator, but this time it’s completely free to play and with a fantasy football angle instead of hoping your ambitious eight-fold comes in.

Weekly cash prize of up to £5,000 will be awarded to the winners, with smaller cash prizes then dished out to the runners up. The size of the kitty depends on how the weekend’s results pan out.

The main advantage of the game is your ability to dip in and out of fantasy football when and as you wish.

Everybody knows how damaging one bad week of the Season game can be to your chances of glory at the end of the campaign, so the fact Weekender allows you to recycle on a weekly basis gives you a fresh start to go again.

You can still get competitive against your mates too with the normal Mini League system in force.

When can I sign up to play Dream Team Weekender?

There’s a simple answer to that – now!

Weekender refreshes every Sunday night after the last Premier League game commences, so you can start signing up to the following weekend’s game almost immediately.

As an indication of it’s popularity, over 40,000 people had already signed up to play Weekender this weekend by Monday evening…
