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 standing will progress.

When does it start?

The qualifying round for the Fantasy Football Scout Cup will take place in Gameweek 28, with the first round proper running in Gameweek 29.

Fantasy managers can enter their teams until 10.30am on Monday 2 March, when we will stop entries and make the first round draws shortly after.

Previous winners are handed a bye to the first round in their respective competitions.

The roll call of former Fantasy Football Scout Cup winners looks like this: donnellyc, Jonty, Gribude, Goonerdave, Ninja_Fit_Saints, sleeping master, Mch, Wild Rover, Tdubb05 , CMIFLFC, Mark, Leon Harris, A Manager Has No Name, Sleepysi, TH14, 2EyedTurk, Man-Chest-Heir F.C., LOKOMOTIV and reigning champion Philman.

Previous winners must enter with the same usernames listed above to gain their bye.

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.

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.
