Dream Team 2022/23 is now live across all platforms!
After the brief summer hiatus, the UK and Ireland’s best fantasy football game is back and better than ever.
There’s £100,000 in prize money up for grabs once again and this season we’re introducing monthly prizes, starting with a PlayStation 5 for the gaffer who racks up the most points in August!
And guess what? Dream Team is still free to play via the website or app, available from the App Store and Google Play Store.
Primarily, it’s great fun for anyone who has an interest in the beautiful game!
Dream Team will function in much the same way as recent seasons.
Season game managers will have a £50million budget to select eleven players who will score points via goals, assists, 7+ match ratings, Star Man awards, and clean sheets (goalkeepers and defenders only).
However, players are also subject to minus points for yellow cards, red cards, missed penalties, and for every goal they concede after the first in each game (keepers and defenders only).
Our player ratings, and by extension Star Man awards, will once again be provided by WhoScored, who use a stats-based algorithm to ensure complete objectivity.
Players are eligible to score points in the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Europa Conference League, Europa League and Champions League.
Managers are given five transfers per month to make any necessary changes as the drama unfolds.
This allotment should allow you react to injuries, suspensions and fluctuations in form.
And because this season is unique in the sense it will be interrupted by a World Cup, all managers will have access to unlimited transfers while the tournament in Qatar takes place.
Variable pricing will impact proceedings as events unfold, meaning players performing above expectations will increase in price while those under performing will decrease.
You can play in mini-leagues against your mates, colleagues, family, or whoever you usually play Dream Team against, while also competing in the against everyone that signs up for the £100,000 pot and monthly prizes.
The standalone winner will take home the £75,000 jackpot at the end of the season, with a further £25,000 in prize money to be awarded to the other managers who finish inside the top five.

Dream Team Draft is also returning for 2021/22.
This format sees bosses compete in mini-leagues after taking part in an initial draft in which participants take turns to pick players to which they have exclusive rights.
For example, if the first person picks Mohamed Salah that means only they will benefit from any points he may score – and the same for the second person who might pick Kevin De Bruyne, and so on…
Draft provides an extra challenge for gaffers but also rewards them with immense satisfaction – there’s nothing quite like knowing you are the only one in your mini-league who benefits when your player scores a screamer.
The new Premier League campaign doesn’t get underway until August 5th when Crystal Palace host Arsenal on a Friday night but since Dream Team managers get unlimited free transfers between now and kick-off at Selhurst Park, there’s no reason not to get an XI locked in as soon as possible, even if it’s just a first draft.
