Should be 3rd week of July I guess? Did they announce it before ? I can't remember, just know that I registered quite early :D

I'd be very surprised if it was that late. Given the season start date, I would guess within the next 14 days, absolute max.

I don't think there's any particular reason to suspect the early start date of the pl will have much effect on the start date of fpl. Same time as the last couple of years' i'd guess.

14-17th july?

given last season was 1 exact month, as a rookie I thought that was a rule lol
from the above table here's the actual days advance, starting from most recent
31 33 30 24 33 39 43 36 40
it had been less than 30 days only once, 4 yrs ago
otoh it hadn't been starting in single-digit date in last 5 yrs
10 July would be 29 days...

As the season starts on 8th August, I would imagine the new game will launch around 8th July.

This should be an indication. I see what you are saying Stemania, we don't need a month to prepare but this is how they've approached it virtually every time so my guess would be as Gooberman's, 8th-12th July at the latest. Perhaps they like about a month to make sure they have time to compensate for any **** ups their end (before 3mn people are registered)

It may well be a week earlier than the last few years, but I always assumed they just release the game when it's ready rather than aim for a preset time before the season starts. I'm away till the 16th so I'm hoping they go late. :lol:

I'm away from 6th to 12th of July so I'm probably missing the start. I might have chance to have WiFi at some point of the holiday just to check player values etc.

Looks like we could be seeing action this week, possibly Wednesday if the month rule holds.

Didn't they tout player prices on twitter last year a couple of days before the off?

Yes they did, and their first post for two weeks was a few hours ago, asking thoughts on Cechs starting price

And so it begins

This is not official, in any way, shape or form. It's a fan account.

The nasty looking Twitter handle (@_fantasypremier) is one clue - also the fact that there isn't a blue tick next to the name to denote that it's an official account, verified by Twitter.

There isn't an official, dedicated Twitter account for FPL. The Premier League use their main Twitter account for all FPL-related posts:

Assuming thats the same link that's doing the rounds on reddit, then it's here:

This is a list of premier league players though and not fantasy premier league players. I think they will still be midfielders in FPL.

FPL site has come out of maintenance and I had to reverify my account today when I logged in, but still no option to start making picks.

Rumours on FFS that we could be seeing some activity tonight. Not sure how much of that is just wishful thinking though... surely a tad early?

It's only gone live once in the evening before, so I doubt there will be any action tonight.

Last year, didn't it launch the day after they enabled re-registration?

Hoping for tomorrow to be the day, coz I'm off work and can fettle away to my little heart's content. Image
