What does the suspension of the Premier League mean for the remainder of the Dream Team season?

The Premier League season has been suspended until at least April 30 as a result of the spread of coronavirus, so you’re possibly wondering what this means for your Dream Team?

Firstly, we can tell you that Dream Team will remain accessible for all users during this period.

That means if and when a Premier League team plays in any applicable competition (so that’s the Prem, FA Cup, Champions League and/or Europa League) then these matches will count towards Dream Team.


Draft results for the most recent Game Week will stand as is, ending with all Man City and Arsenal players – following the postponement of their fixture – scoring zero points as if they didn’t play.

The fixture will be included in the Game Week it eventually takes place within.

How does this all play out?

We are expecting the league to follow the same schedule as before, however this could mean that there are a number of game weeks that will subsequently become double or triple game weeks for certain teams.

Under the current rules, the season is scheduled to end on June 1 although the postponement of Euro 2020 has opened up a window for domestic leagues – including the Prem – to run fixtures in June and beyond.

But what about transfers?

All transfers will remain unaffected at this point.

Gaffers will be able to use their monthly allowance of transfers as per the schedule outlines in the game rules.

If the season rolls into later months outside of the schedule then we will review and update based on the information provided by a relevant associations and authorities.

However, transfers made ahead of the first Friday of March (which, unlucky for some, was on Friday 13) have already gone through and we are unable to reverse them.

Prizes and Payments

Any completed Game Weeks of Weekender will see the prizes settled with the confirmed winners contacted by the Promoter.
