The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.
Players per team
You can select up to 3 players from a single Barclays Premier League team.
Once you have selected your squad, select Create or join leagues, then Join a League, then Private League, you will then be prompted to enter a code - enter 109079–32038, and then select Port Vale Fantasy Football Challenge and you will then be ready to compete against Port Vale players and staff, and of course other Vale supporters.
We will be featuring teams on the official website and in the Vale programme on a regular basis.
No need to worry if your team is in the nether regions of the league, there is still a chance to win the ‘team of the month’ prize and occasionally we may select a team at random to win a special prize.
Choosing Your Starting 11
From your 15 player squad, select 11 players by the Gameweek deadline to form your team.
All your points for the Gameweek will be scored by these 11 players, however if one or more doesn't play they may be automatically substituted.
Your team can play in any formation providing that 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders and at least 1 forward are selected at all times.
Selecting a Captain and a Vice-Captain
From your starting 11 you nominate a captain and a vice-captain. Your captain's score will be doubled.
If your captain plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, the captain will be changed to the vice-captain.
If both captain and vice-captain play 0 minutes in a Gameweek, then no player's score will be doubled.
Prioritising Your Bench For Automatic Substitutions
Your substitutes provide cover for unforeseen events like injuries and postponements by automatically replacing starting players who don't play in a
Based on the priorities you assign, automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek as follows:
If your Goalkeeper plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.
If any of your outfield players play 0 minutes in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender).
During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Barclays Premier League.
