And ahead of the 2017/18 season the game is back and better than ever.

When can I sign up?

You can start getting your teams in as early as July 3 2017 – a massive six weeks before the Premier League season even gets underway.

That leaves you an awful long time to deliberate and mull over who your picks might be.

The closing date for the season game, therefore, will be the first day of the campaign on August 12 2017.

What’s different this season?

Well the main difference between Dream Team this season and last season is that entry is absolutely free for all managers, with the golden prize pot at the end of the rainbow a whopping £750,000.

There’s also a massive shake up on the Game Week front, with Game Weeks running from Friday to Thursday in 2017/18.

How does it work?

Simple really.

For each team you must:

  • Select only eligible players from the player lists provided
  • The total value of the 11 players at time of entry must not exceed £50 million. Variable player pricing will dictate whether a player goes up or down periodically based upon their performance and other factors.

Each team must have one of two playing formations:

  • 4­4­2 -­ a goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders and two strikers; or
  • 4­3­3 -­ a goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three strikers

What other games can I enter?

As well as the traditional season game, Dream Team Weekender and Dream Team Europe are also back to give you two other options to win a shed load of money.

So whether it’s Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne or Philippe Coutinho who you back to lead you to glory, there’s plenty of opportunities to shine.
