Fantasy Football Scout Cups

Each season, we run a couple of cup competitions for visitors to the site: an Open Cup, which anyone can enter; and a Members Cup for those with one of our premium memberships.

The first editions of these cups for the 2023/24 season have been completed.

You can view the results and matchups for the FFS Open Cup here, and for the Premium Members Cup here.

There will, however, be a second edition of the Members Cup, details of which will be announced in due course.

How Do the cup competitions work?

Our cup competitions are very similar to the Fantasy Premier League's Fantasy Cup game. Entrants who qualify for the first round will be randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores). In the event of a tie, the manager highest in the overall standings will progress.

When does it start?

The qualifying round for the FFS Open Cup took place in Gameweek 12, while qualifying for the FFS Members Cup took place in Gameweek 13.

Managers who scored exactly 64 points (minus hits) and had an overall rank better than 294,983 made the cut for the Open Cup, while a qualification score of 42 (minus hits), with an overall rank of 108,963 or better, was required for the Members Cup.

How do I enter?

Entry for both the Fantasy Football Scout Open Cup and the Premium Members Cup is now closed.

A reminder that when signing-up for future editions of the cups, you will be asked for your display name, FPL team ID, and email address.

Ensure that you double-check your FPL team ID - please click the link on the entry form to verify that your team is correct before confirming. If your FPL team is incorrectly entered, we cannot amend this at a later date.

Your entry is only completed once you have confirmed your FPL team ID as part of the process.

Please note that only teams that have been registered with FPL for Gameweek 1 will be eligible for the competition.

You can check that you're entered correctly by scaning the list of entries: FFS Open Cup Teams, FFS Members Cup Teams.

When will I find out if I've qualified?

Do I need to be registered with Fantasy Football Scout?

We ask you to supply an FFS username so we can feature you, as a member of our community, in any articles associated with the tournament. Ideally, you will already have a username with us but this is not essential to enter (although it is for the Members Cup) - you must, however, supply a username for the purpose of the tournament so you can be identified in articles. You must not change this username throughout the course of the tournament, should you do so without permission, or should you enter multiple teams or if your FFS account comes under moderation for any reason, we reserve the right to remove you from the tournament.

Do I have to enter if I'm previous winner?

Yes, because your FPL team ID will have changed, we will need to record your entry again. As a previous winner, you will be given a bye to the first round proper of any contest you enter. Previous winners must enter with the same usernames listed below to gain their bye.
