What games can I play?
As mentioned earlier, Dream Team is the only place where you can play THREE separate fantasy football formats next season.
As well as the traditional Season game and the hugely popular short-form iteration Weekender, Dream Team is launching its brand spanking new Draft game too.
Don’t say we don’t spoil you…
How does Draft work?
Draft sees you pitted against other managers in your own mini-league.
You’re tasked with building a 15-man squad… but there’s a twist when it comes to transfers.
Unlike the traditional Season game, only one manager in your mini-league is allowed to own one player. For example, if Joe Bloggs picks up Mo Salah, nobody else can have him.
At the start of every season you’ll take part in a live draft to choose your squad, with no players duplicated.
Every week consists of a head-to-head match up against another manager from your league, with three points on offer for a win, one for a draw and none for a defeat.
The league chairman decides when the live draft will take place before the start of the season on August 9th.
There are no budget limitations – only positional requirements that need fulfilling.
If you’re not happy with your squad, you can trade players with other managers in your league and pick up free agents who haven’t been drafted.
How does the points system work?
All three of our game formats – Season, Weekender and Draft – operate with the same points system, so you won’t need to learn any new rules.
Players accrue points for scoring, assisting, getting a 7+ match rating (via WhoScored) and winning Star Man.
Goalkeepers and defenders earn extra points for keeping clean sheets and, in the former’s case, saving penalties.
Players will be deducted points for yellow cards, red cards, missed penalties and conceding LOTS of goals.
Why should I play Dream Team?
Well if you didn’t know it already, it’s the number one fantasy football game in the UK.
Not only is there a tasty jackpot up for grabs if you really are part of the elite, it’s also the perfect opportunity to get one over your mates.
With Season, Weekender and Draft all running simultaneously next season there will be so many different ways to get involved.
