I General

  • 1. Each manager is allowed only one team.
  • 2. Each team must have 15 players (11 starters and 4 substitutes). The 15 players include 2 goalkeepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders and 3 strikers.
  • 3. Each team can have no more than 3 players from the same club.
  • 4. Each team has a starting budget of 120 million. This budget will change over time based on the performance of each player on the team.
  • 5. The value of a player varies over time based on the real-world performance of the player. If the player is underperforming, his value decreases. If the player is over-performing, his value increases. Therefore, the budget for each manager’s team may vary over time based on the total changes in the value of the players on the team.
  • 6. Each manager may select from the following formations: 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-5-1, 3-4-3, 3-5-2, 5-3-2, 5-4-1.
  • 7. Each manager is allowed 1 free transfer per round. Each additional transfer during that round will deduct 4 points from the team's overall points.
  • 8. Each manager gets 1 transfer wildcard, with the ability to purchase more using their "Coins" - each wildcard can be activated for any round, and it allows the manager to make as many free transfers as they want before the start of the upcoming Round.
  • 9. When a player moves from one club to another in real life, it can create a situation where you have more than the allowed number of players from the same club on your team. You are required to transfer players to abide by the 3-player-per-club rule next time you make transfers. For instance, if you have 3 players from Heracles and 1 from Excelsior, and that player from Excelsior moves to Heracles, then you will have 4 players from Heracles on your team. In this case, you may keep these players until the next time you do a transfer - then you will have to remove one of the Heracles players.
  • 10.Transferring out a player who has left Fantasy Serie A is free. These players will appear as grey silhouettes on your team.
  • 11. Each round will start 5 minutes before kick-off of the first match and will end after the last match of the round is played.
  • 12. If you sign up after a Round has started, you earn points only for the games that have not already started.

II Scoring

  • 1. Players score points based on their performance in real matches. The player performance events and points earned are listed in the table below. Please note that Clean Sheet points are awarded only to a player that: (a) plays at least 45 minutes in a match and (b) does not concede any goals while he is playing in a match. The number of goals a player's club concedes while he is not on the field does not affect the points he earns. For example, assume player A starts a match, plays the first half (45 minutes) before being subbed out, and does not concede any goals. He earns clean sheet points as per the table below. Now assume player B subs in for player A and plays the entire second half (45 minutes) yet concedes a goal. Player B receives zero points but Player A still earns his full points.
  • 2. In case of postponed matches, the players who were supposed to play in those matches will get 0 points. However, once the match is actually played, earned points will be attributed to the round closest to the new match date. Only players who are on the team at that point (not players who were there when the match was supposed to be played) will score points.
  • 3. The manager may choose between Team Strategies, each giving a different approach to his/her team: (a) Team Setup allows a manager to select an Attacking, Balanced or Defensive setup. The points earned by the players are different in each strategy, with the attacking strategy favoring strikers and midfielders, while the defensive strategy favors defenders and goalkeepers. The balanced strategy tries to deliver an equilibrium between these. A strategy may be changed only between rounds. Once the round starts, changes to the Team Setup are no longer permitted. (b) Team Formation allows a manager to choose his team formation, that is, 3-4-3, 2-5-3, etc. The Team Formation may only be selected before a round starts. A formation may not be changed once a round has started. (c) Please see sections 4-6 below for the other Team Strategy options. Please note that once the round has started, no further changes are permitted for any Team Strategies.
  • 4. As part of Team Strategies (defined in section 3 above), each manager is given a Captain for the season. A manager may select a player to be Captain only between rounds. A manager may not change the player assigned as Captain once the round has started. The player who is assigned as Captain earns 3 times the points he scores in that round. So, if a manager assigns player A as Captain for a round and player A scores 4 for that round, he earns 3x4 = 12 points for the round.
  • 5. A manager may buy a Super Captain in the Store before a round starts. The Super Captain will be active only for that round. Once the round is over, the team will lose its Super Captain until the manager buys a new one. A manager may select a player to be Super Captain only between rounds. A manager may not change the player assigned as Super Captain once the round has started. The player who is assigned as Super Captain earns 4 times the points he scores in that round. So, if a manager assigns player A as Super Captain for a round and player A scores 4 for that round, he earns 4x4 = 16 points for the round.
  • 6. A manager may buy a Vice Captain in the Store before a round starts. The Vice Captain will be active only for that round. Once the round is over, the team will lose its Vice Captain until the manager buys a new one. A manager may select a player to be Vice Captain only between rounds. A manager may not change the player assigned as Vice Captain once the round has started. The player who is assigned as Vice Captain earns 2 times the points he scores in that round. So, if a manager assigns player A as Vice Captain for a round and player A scores 4 for that round, he earns 2x4 = 8 points for the round.
  • 7. An assist is the last pass made before a goal is scored. No assist is earned in the case of an own-goal.
  • 8. Players do not gain points for simply earning a penalty kick. They must score the penalty kick to gain points or miss it to lose points.
  • 9. Starting Players may be substituted for Bench Players. Both Between Round Substitutions and During Round Substitutions are permitted in the game. The numbers of remaining players that may be substituted are visible under Remaining Substitutions on My Team page. Additional Between Round Substitutions and During Round Substitutions may be acquired using Coins in the Store.
  • 10. Players may be Transferred for other players on My Team page. A manager may drop a player from his team by clicking the "-" next to his body on the field. He may then add a player by clicking the "+" sign next to the desired player from the list on the right side of the field. Several players may be transferred in one action. Both Between Round Transfers and During Round Transfers are permitted in the game. The numbers of remaining players that may be transferred are visible under Remaining Transfers on My Team page. Additional Between Round Transfers and During Round Transfers may be acquired using Coins in the Store.

III Leagues

  • 1. There are two kinds of leagues: Classic and Head-to-Head.
  • 2. In Classic leagues, managers compete against all other members of their league based on the overall performance of their team. Therefore, teams are ranked based on the total points they have earned since joining the league.
  • 3. Public Classic leagues are automatically created at the beginning of each round for members who do not join or create any leagues between the day they sign up and the start of the next Round.
  • 4. Each manager is automatically assigned to a National Public Classic league based on the manager’s country and a Fan Public league based on the manager’s chosen favorite club.
  • 5. A manager may choose to join any previously created Public Classic league. Joining a Public Classic league costs the same number of "Coins" as joining a user-created league.
  • 6. A manager may create and/or join as many Classic leagues as he/she wants. The creating manager may choose to set an entry fee for the league (in game currency, "coins"). The entry fee paid by the members are added up in order to create a “coin” prize for the winner. The “coin” prize is 75% of the sum of all entry fees, and is distributed after the league ends.
  • 7. When creating a Classic league, a manager may choose the number of rounds the league will last (between 1 round and full season).
  • 8. A Classic league must have at least 2 members or it will be terminated before its first round begins.
  • 9. After creating a Classic league, a manager will receive a join-code that will allow the manager to invite other managers to join the newly created league. The code may be openly shared on the web (forums, blogs etc.) In order to join a league created by another manager, a manager must know that league's join-code. A Classic league manager may also disallow applications to his/her league.
  • 10. Managers may join a Classic league after the league competition has already begun.
  • 11. A premium member may also apply to join Classic leagues. The Classic league manager decides whether or not to accept the application.
  • 12. Trophies are awarded to the winners of Classic leagues and of 1-on-1 matches. These are automatically added to the winning manager's profile.
  • 13.Head-to-head leagues are based on real-life leagues. The participating teams play against each other in each round, and the winner of each match is decided based on the points scored in that round. A fixture schedule is created at the beginning of the first round following league creation. Each team plays every other team twice. The winner of a match receives 3 points and the loser gets 0. In case of a draw, both teams get 1 point. The Match Center allows a manager to view the points earned by the two teams as the match progresses.
  • 14. A manager may create and/or join as many Head-to-Head leagues as he/she wants. The creating manager may choose to set an entry fee for the league (in game currency, "coins"). The entry fees paid by the members are added up in order to create a “coin” prize for the winner. The “coin” prize is 75% of the sum of all entry fees, and is distributed after the league ends.
  • 15. After creating a Head-to-Head league, a manager will receive a join-code that will allow the manager to invite other managers to join the newly created league. The code may be openly shared on the web (forums, blogs etc.) In order to join a league created by another manager, a manager must know that league's join-code.
  • 16. A Head-to-Head league limits the number of members allowed to participate depending on the number of remaining rounds. The number of members is calculated using the equation N = (41- Current Round)/2. This ensures that there are enough rounds left for each team to play each other team twice. For example, if a Head-to-Head league is created before the season begins, its maximum number of members is 20. However, if a league is created after 12 rounds have been played, the maximum number of members allowed to participate falls to 14.
  • 17. If the number of members participating in a Head-to-Head league is less than the maximum allowed, the duration (number of rounds) of the league is calculated automatically.
  • 18. A Head-to-Head league must have at least 2 members or it will be terminated before its first round begins.
  • 19. Trophies are awarded to the winners of Head-to-Head leagues. These are automatically added to the winning manager's profile.
  • 20. The manager of a Head-to-Head league may remove teams from the league only before they've played any matches within that league.
