Telegraph Fantasy Football (TFF) 2019/20

There are major changes with TFF for 2019/20 with the game becoming completely free to play and a maximum of 5 teams allowed. Consequently, the prize money on offer has dropped dramatically to a total prize pool of just £15,000. The betting regulations (pay to play fantasy sports games are considered ‘betting’ by the UK Gambling Commission) have influenced TFF to move solely to a free to play platform from this coming EPL season.

There are of course other options for getting a better return and for the best new betting sites for UK fantasy football fans in 2019 have a look at which keeps track of new sport betting sites launching in the UK.

The basic principles of TFF are still the same however: pick an 11 man team using your £50m budget and, like most games, there is a transfer amnesty until 8pm on Friday 9th August when the first EPL match kicks-off. Both EPL and FA Cup matches count for your players so having players from clubs that have a good FA Cup run in 2020 might help, assuming the club don’t field their 2nd string players.

To get to the top of the leaderboard of this game, you need to consider carefully which formation to choose and which players will score you the most points bearing in mind that you have 40 transfers for the season. Some players you pick will be ones to keep for the entire season (subject to a loss of form or injury) whilst others may be picked because of a good run of fixtures at the start of the season. You need to focus on likely bargain players over the first few weeks as these cheaper players will allow you to buy the more expensive points accumulating players such as Salah, Aguero and Kane.

Someone else who is also still on top of their game is 888Sport betting and we hope this guide helps you get to the top of your game in 2019/20.
