The Premier League gets underway this weekend when Fulham take on Arsenal at Craven Cottage in the early kick off in front of the television cameras.

That game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. which means for those playing Fantasy Football the deadline will be 11 a.m. to get your opening weekend line up in place with the new rule this season that deadlines are ninety minutes before the first game.

Things are going well at Up the Clarets with 72 players already having joined the league and that’s just ahead of last year. That means the prize fund is currently at £360 with a similar amount to be donated to the foodbank at Burnley Community Kitchen.

Would you like to join us? Would you like some Burnley players in your squad of fifteen? You can have up to three players from any one club and our players do come in a little bit cheaper than some which helps the budget. Seven of our players picked up more than 100 points last season. Nick Pope led the way with 170 and he was followed by James Tarkowski (143), Chris Wood (136), Dwight McNeil (123), Ashley Westwood (118), Ben Mee (110) and Jay Rodriguez (100).

You might want to include some of the top names in the Premier League, but the budget won’t allow too many. From the new champions Liverpool you will have to pay £12million for either Sadio Mané or Mo Salah while the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling at Manchester City come in at £11.5 million.

We will be hoping once again to have prizes for the players who finish in the top three and also manager of the month awards.

Four days then and this is what you have to do if you want to join our league, challenge for the prizes and at the same time support the foodbank which, right now, is in desperate need of your help.

Firstly, join the official Premier League Fantasy Football Game and then send us your payment of £10 (£10.60 via Paypal to cover their costs) and we will send you the league code you need to become a member of the Up the Clarets League.
