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 ran between Gameweek 12 and Gameweek 23.

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

The second edition of our Premium Members Cup took place from Gameweek 29 to Gameweek 37.

You can view the results and matchups here.

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 Fantasy Football Scout Cups will return for the 2024/25 season, details will be announced in due course.

How do I enter?

Entry forms will be provided once the new competitions are announced.

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.

After confirming your FPL team ID on the entry form, you will be sent a confirmation email to verify your submission.

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 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.
