XDBX Champions League 16-17 Fantasy Football

Recommended Posts

XDBX Champions League 16-17 Fantasy Football

In association with UEFA (it's not really).

**Coming soon**

Simply declare your interest below, costs nothing to enter and there's no prize except bragging rights (which is arguably better than any prize).

No football experience or knowledge required, just a valid email address.

Works the same way as both previous fantasy football competitions.

Full details will be posted once we reach the minimum number of participants that I have in mind, in this case 8 teams.

Cheers.

I'm game.

I usually forget about my team after a month when doing these season long fantasy leagues. 

Don't think I have ever played one to the end. Hopefully this will be the first. :D

Yeah, that's a worry.

The thread won't be as active as the Euro's, but hopefully a post near match day or transfer windows can alert everyone to the league.

The matches also won't get as much coverage as the Euro's, I get every game at home, but others might not.

We'll see how it goes. It could fail miserably, in that case I'll stick to major international tournaments.

Chose this over the Premier League as there are less fixtures to worry about. Also this competition gets a break near Christmas which is useful.

If you guys lose interest over time, that's fine, you can drop out at any time. September - May is a long time, but there aren't that many matches.

Would be cool if it worked though. It'll give someone another title to defend next time :)

Agreed. If we keep get thread active, it shouldn't be a problem.

And yeah, Champions League is definitely easier to follow than Premier League.  

@DavidCore89, are we using the same site as usual?

Tried to create one at Dream Team, they have an option for Europe League, but when I created the league it gave me Premier League players to choose from. So I guess they're focusing on the Premier League, unless I've made some kinda mistake.

How about this: http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/news/newsid=2398028.html

Even free accounts can win prizes.

You get automatically entered into several leagues, including a league of your country.

My team name was taken already, so I had to slightly alter that.

Only 20 characters allowed for the league name.

Anyway, here's the league: http://uclfantasy.uefa.com/en/leagues/join?leaguecode=596F7572204D756D73204174686C6574696323233432373623235844425820434C2031362D313723233034323736444457

PIN: 04276DDW.

Be sure to look through the rules, It's very in-depth compared to Dream Team.

I auto-filled my team for now, I'll make changes soon.

I can add these guys to the league too if you like? The website suggested it, of course they won't enter our chat, it's just for extra opponents.

I've picked my team, for now, and entered the league. 

Who else wants to get in on this? The first round starts the 13th.

Gonna set my team shortly.

Will probably add those football experts too.

If anyone else is joining, you still have time before the first round of matches tonight.

My team is ready.

Added 3 football experts from the UEFA website as well, so we have 9 teams in the league.

Yeah, it's a human controlled team as well.

As the pin is posted here, randoms could actually join, so I wanna find out who it is before kicking them out :)
