The Premier League is set to resume on June 17th… and so are we!
We know you’ve all been wondering what the unusual circumstances affecting the current season means for your Dream Team, so here’s some answers.
Most importantly, we’re ready to get back underway the moment the first ball is kicked in two weeks’ time.
You’ll be pleased to know that we’ll keep crediting you with transfers for as long as the season lasts.
You will have received three transfers last Friday (June 5th) as June’s allotment and you will have three more to use from the first Friday in July.

If the 2019/20 season extends into August, we will supply you with another three transfers to use then.
We will, to the best of our ability, ensure that every eligible match involving English teams across the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League are processed within Dream Team and contribute to points tallies.
This is dependent on each of the aforementioned competitions resuming and being completed.
All three formats (Season, Weekender and Draft) will resume in accordance with the new fixture schedule when confirmed by the Premier League — the same applies for the remaining FA Cup rounds and European competitions.
There will likely be a reduction in Game Weeks, with an increase in midweek fixtures to make up for lost time.
From a practical standpoint, this means your players will be playing more games than usual between your changes — study the revised fixture list when it is released.
The Premier League will allow teams a maximum of five substitutes per game to counteract fatigue.
Dream Team will reflect this alteration so that your players will be active (and therefore score points) if they enter a game as a fourth or fifth sub.
I’m sure you can appreciate we must wait for more information from football’s governing bodies before providing further details, but we will endeavour to update you as soon as possible.
