Fantasy Premier League is launched on Up the Clarets
The Premier League have launched the official 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League game this afternoon and Up the Clarets have moved quickly to again set up our league for our own competition.
For the second season we will be raising money to be donated to the foodbank at Burnley Community Kitchen.
As in previous seasons, the plan is to have prizes for finishing in the top positions, it has previously been the top three, and hopefully also for the managers of the month. We’ve kept the entry fee at £10 per team (£10.60 if using credit/debit card or Paypal to cover their costs). For each entry received, £5 will be added to the prize fund with the remainder being donated to the charity.
We’ve always used the official game and have continued with it. All you need to do is select a squad of fifteen players within a budget of £100 million. Team and squad changes are permitted during the season and there are also a couple of extra features there again that can be used.
One of the rules is no more than three players from any one club. There are bargains to be had within our squad. Chris Wood comes in as the most expensive at £7 million while you can have an England goalkeeper and defender, Nick Pope for £5.5 million, and midfielder Ashley Westwood and our other three strikers all come in at that price. James Tarkowski or Ben Mee will cost you £5 million each.
If you want to look at the top end of the market, you can spend £12.5 million on either Harry Kane or Mo Salah while the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Sadio Mané and Bruno Fernandes will cost half a million less at £12 million.
Here is how you join. You need to set up your squad and then send us your entry fee and you will receive the code for the Up the Clarets league on receipt. You don’t have to be registered to use our Message Board but a list of all the entries will be displayed there along with the prize fund and prize details once entries close.
