Introducing Our New £50,000 FPL Contest: Fantasy Divisions

Fantasy Divisions is our brand new season-long contest in which teams are promoted and relegated between divisions every four gameweeks. But how exactly does it work?


How do I pick my Fantasy Divisions squad?

If you’ve ever played FPL before, you already know how to pick your Fantasy Divisions squad. Just like the original game, Fantasy Divisions gives you £100m to pick a team of 15 players. Two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.

Player pricing and scoring are identical to traditional FPL too, which means a great squad in the official game will translate perfectly to a Fantasy Divisions team. If a £12.0m Aguero bags a brace + three bonus points, he’ll be netting 13 points in both.

What division will I start in?

That’s what qualifying is for.

We’ve divided the season into nine sections of four gameweeks (each section is called a “mini-season”, by the way). But the mathematically savvy amongst you will have already spotted that this method leaves us with two gameweeks to spare. Those are our qualifying weeks.

Qualifying takes place in Gameweeks 1 and 2, so make sure you hit the ground running. After that, you’ll be placed in one of four divisions based on your points total.

How does the promotion and relegation thing work?

Remember the mini-seasons? They’re the four-gameweek long chunks we’ve split the season into. Well, at the end of each one, the best teams will be promoted and – you guessed it – the worst teams will be relegated.

Your points will reset at the end of each mini-season. This ensures that everyone starts the next mini-season on a level playing field.

Naturally, we’re giving away some big cash prizes for the best managers at the end of each mini-season too. Even if you’re languishing in the bottom division, you’ll still be rewarded for master-minding a promotion-winning campaign. Speaking of rewards…

What can I win?

There’s £50,000 up for grabs throughout the 2019/20 season. Every four weeks there’s an opportunity to climb the league system and compete for bigger prize pools.

With payouts happening at the end of each mini-season; this means there isn’t just one but NINE opportunities to win cash throughout the season.

It’s as simple as that. Get promoted, get paid.

Payout Per Mini-Season

What can I lose?

There’s a £5.50 entry fee to play Fantasy Divisions. When you weigh up the prizes on offer, we reckon it’s a good deal.

There’s also a small risk of losing some of your FPL dignity and pride. FantasyBet won’t be held responsible for such losses, though we may consider a post-season support group for relegated managers if there’s enough interest.

Prepare for dizzying highs and plummeting lows. This is season-long fantasy, but not as you’ve ever known it.

How do I enter

Now you’re asking the right questions. Head to the Fantasy Divisions lobby and start building your squad. It’s as simple as that.

Remember, qualifiers start in Gameweek 1. Unlike the likes of Gundogan and Barkley, this isn’t a hype train you want to miss.
