General

What is Fantasy Football (Soccer)? This is a game in which the user forms a virtual team of football players whose prototypes take part in real competitions. Further, depending on the actual statistics of their performances, these players gain points. These points are added to the total score of the user's team.

The points are awarded to football players depending on the success of their real prototypes. More details about accrual here.

The game features the current line-up of all the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga, League 1, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

In football, situations sometimes arise when, for various reasons, a player changes his position on the field, for example, a striker can become a midfielder. Due to this, twice a year, January 31st, and July 31st, we check and update the positions of all players.

After updating the positions, the squad of each game team will be checked for compliance with the rules of the game, and if there is a overabundance of players in any position, the extra players will be automatically sold. The cost of the players sold will return to the team balance.

Game process

Game Week - the structural period of the game zone, runs from Monday to Sunday.

Game Zone is a group consisting of 8 teams that compete with each other for 4 gaming weeks.

After creation, the team automatically enters the Game Zone. If after determining all the participants in the zone, there is more than 1 remaining before the deadline of the next gaming week, then the game will start in the zone, otherwise, the next week will be skipped.

After the end of the zone drawing, the team squad is not saved, and for the next zone, it will be necessary to form it again.

Game Zone

By registering, the user gets the opportunity to create 1 game team. On the team creation page, you need to enter a unique name for the team, choose the country of the gaming zone and your favorite club, and you can also download the team logo if you wish.

We recommend that you choose the country of the gaming zone responsibly because it depends on who you play with. From your favorite club, you can choose 1 player (s) more than from the rest. You can change the country of the game zone and your favorite club in the profile settings.

Team creation

To start the game, collect a squad of 15 players, which includes:

  • 2 goalkeepers
  • 5 defenders
  • 5 midfielders
  • 3 forwards

You can choose no more than 3 from one team, and no more than 4 players from your favourite team.

Team squad

The zone draw takes place in 3 stages: recruitment of participants, game, summing up. The status of the zone corresponds to the current stage.

During the GAME period, users form the first team line-up, score points, make transfers, and participate in the cup.

The period of summing up begins after the end of the last gaming week of the zone and continues until the results of this week are completely added. After summing up, the best teams are awarded and the game in the zone ends. After that, teams can join new game zones.

If during the game zone, none of the participants scored points, then the game zone is considered as failed. Participants of this game zone do not receive rewards and prizes upon completion of the game.

During the game, players will earn points for your team. Player points for a match are awarded to a game team only if the player was in its composition at the start of the match. If the player was acquired during or after the match, the points earned by him are not added to the total number of team points. The same applies to the appointment of the team captain and vice-captain, the increase in the player's points occurs only if he was the captain at the time of the start of the match. You can also triple the captain's and vice-captain's points with boosters.

After completion of the zone, the top 5 users receive additional funds to the team’s budget for the next draw.
Awarding takes place at 06:00 the next day after the end of the zone.

The prize size is shown in the table below.

Place Transfer Budget Salary Budget
1 +20 Mill. € +0.6 Mill. €
2 +15 Mill. € +0.4 Mill. €
3 +10 Mill. € +0.2 Mill. €
4 +5 Mill. € +0.1 Mill. €
5 +5 Mill. € +0.1 Mill. €

In addition to the main tournament, the game zone cup is held in each game zone. The gameplay of the cup is more “lively” and allows users to play head-to-head.

The draw takes place in three rounds: quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. Each round is held within one calendar day by UTC and includes from 1 to 5 matches. Matches for the quarter-finals are determined immediately after the start of the zone, and for subsequent rounds - at the end of the previous round. Rounds are formed so that before the start of the first match there will be at least one day, during which you can make changes to the squad. Participants in the first round are all the teams in the zone. To advance to the next round, a team must score more points in the round matches than its opponent. If the participants will have the same number of points, then the next round will play the team with more points in the main tournament of the game zone. If the teams have the same number of points in the zone, then a user with a higher rating will win.

Squads for oppositions are stored one hour before the start of the first match of the round. Keep in mind that the squad for the cup and the main tournament is common.

Management

To manage the squad, two types of team view are available - “List” and “Field”. In the settings of your profile, you can choose your preferred type of view, and it will be opened by default on the team management page.

Transfers

You can make no more than 2 transfers per gaming week. Unused transfers do NOT accumulate.

Transfers

In the transfer market, you can buy and sell players to real clubs. During the season, the price of a player may change, depending on his results in matches. When selling a player to a real club, the transfer amount will be equal to the current value of the player, and not the one for which you bought him.

Selling players Buying Players

On the page of the opposing team in the zone you can make a transfer request for a player of this team. To do this, select the player who will leave your team, in case of a successful offer, and indicate the transfer amount, which should not exceed the balance of your team’s budget + the cost of the player who will leave your team.

Make transfer request Transfer Request Example
Finance

Each team has two separate budgets for transfers and salaries, in the amount of 100 Mill. € and 2.8 Mill. € respectively. Money cannot be transferred between budgets. Unused during the zone draw funds are not added to the budget of the next draw.

Salaries for players are paid at the end of each gaming week from a dedicated budget. Detailed salary information can be seen on the Finance page.

It is important to note that if there are not enough funds in the budget at the time of payment, the team will be fined 1 point for every 100K € of a deficit.

After registration, your level is 1, and the rating is zero. As your rating grows, so does your level.

User rating varies depending on the performance of his/her game team. For every 10 points scored by the team 1 point is added to the rating.
The user’s level is determined based on his rating, according to a special formula that is designed so that achieving each next level is more difficult than the previous one.

Users with a Premium account L have the ability to create private zones. Such zones allow you to create a personal game space based on Fanatos, in which you determine most aspects of the gameplay. It also depends on you who will become a member of your zone, because only those who have a special invitation can join it. This gives you a great opportunity to play your favorite fantasy football with your friends.

When creating a private zone, you can define the following parameters:

  • the number of participants;
  •                                 
  • the duration of the game in the zone;
  •                                 
  • the number of transfers per week;
  •                                 
  • the start budgets for transfers and salaries.

You can also disable elements of the gameplay for your zone, such as:

  • payroll for football players;
  • holding the game zone cup;
  • use of boosters by zone participants.

In private game zones, the privileges of the premium account and user level do not work. It is important to note that one user can have only one private zone at a time. To create a private zone, you have to wait until the end of the current game zone (if any), and select "Create a private game zone" on the home page.
