Part 1: How to Play

Managing Your Team
Picking your Sky Sports Fantasy Football team is quick and easy and best of all it’s free. You can use any of the following formations:

4-3-3
4-4-2
4-5-1
3-5-2
5-3-2
3-4-3

Pick 11 players keeping within the £100m budget. There is no quota for players from the same club. You will be able to make unlimited team changes up to the Match Day deadline of the first Premier League match on Friday 11th August, allowing you to keep your friends guessing and the opportunity to through a last minute curve ball. Once you've picked your team you'll be automatically assigned a captain based on your most expensive player. You can create two teams in Sky Sports Fantasy Football with a third team available in January.

Captain Changes


The captain of your team will score double points – positive and negative. This season Sky are giving you the ability to schedule all of your captains for the next game week in advance. This means managers can make unlimited captain changes in a Game Week.

Transfers


Once the season has started, you will have a total of 40 transfers available during the season, with a maximum of 5 transfers each Game Week, with the Game Week running from Friday to Thursday. In order to be eligible for scoring, transfers must be made before the Match Day deadline, which is the kick-off of the first match that day. Transfers made after the Match Day deadline will start scoring from the next Match Day.

Game Week


Throughout the 2017/18 season, the Sky Sports Fantasy Football Game Weeks will run from Friday to Thursday. Make sure that you’ve made your changes and scheduled your captains by each match day deadline.
