Fantasy Premier League is the best, right? Of course is is!

But UEFA Champions League is the not too shabby either! For one, you’ve got a whopping five Premier League teams represented in this season’s Champions League with Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United, so you’ve got plenty of your favorite Premiership squads to root on and loads of their players to choose from when crafting your fantasy sides.

On top of that, though, it’s a great chance to add in other international superstars playing on Europe’s top clubs. Have you ever wanted Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and other greats on your fantasy teams? Surely you have and now is your chance!

The Format

The format and player pricing are very similar to that of Official Premier League fantasy. You have to fit 15 players (including four on the bench) into your €100m budget, with no more than three players from any single team in this round. In your starting 11, you select a captain whose points are doubled. And yes, if you want Cristiano Ronaldo or Leonel Messi, you’re going to have to pay top euro.

The Rules and Scoring

The rules and scoring are also fairly reminiscent of those for Official Premier League fantasy, but they are basically the same as fantasy World Cup and Euros. If you’ve played either of those before, you won’t really even need a primer!
