The official FIFA Forum League will utilise the classic format, but H2H and Draft are options you should definitely explore. I'm sure most of you know how this works by now, but if not there's a FAQ below as well as a link to the full list of rules. Unlike last season, there are a couple of changes so I recommend that you go over the fine print, particularly if you're new to FPL. Best of luck!
How can I join the (private) league?
First of all you must have entered a team in the game. Once you have a team, make sure that you have the correct league code (8547-3405
) and that you are entering for the correct format (classic).
How can I score points?
During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Premier League only
Please refer to the official scoring section (via rules) for specifics on assists, rebounds and bonus points.
What are chips?
Chips can be used to potentially enhance your team's performance during the season. Only one chip can be played in a single Gameweek.
This year, All Out Attack has been replaced by a new chip called Free Hit. A Free Hit can be taken once per season and allows for unlimited transfers in a single Gameweek. Managers can replace their entire squad for that Gameweek but their 15-man squad of the Gameweek before returns for the next deadline. For example, if the Free Hit chip is played leading up to Gameweek 2, once the deadline has passed, you will see the points scored by your new squad via the points tab.
The full list of chips can be found below:
The Bench Boost. Free Hit and Triple Captain chips can each be used once a season and are played when saving your team on the my team page. They can be cancelled at anytime before the Gameweek deadline.
The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season. The first wilcard will be available from the start of the season until 30 Dec 14:00. The second wildcard will be available after this date in readiness for the January transfer window opening and remain available until the end of the season. The Wildcard chip is played when confirming transfers that cost points and can't be cancelled once played.
