Fantasy Football

Fantasy Football

This season we're playing Fantasy Football on Premier Skills English! Have you played it before? If you have, great but if you haven't here is a summary of how it works and how we are going to use the Fantasy Football game to improve your English!

The Rules

Here are the basic rules of the Fantasy Football game on premierleague.com, for more detailed rules visit www.premierleague.com. You can sign up and create your own team.

  • A squad of 15 players.
  • 2 goalkeepers.
  • 5 defenders.
  • 5 midfielders.
  • 3 strikers.
  • A maximum of three players from one club.
  • A captain each week who scores double points.
  • A total budget of £100 million.

The Teams

Our Team: Premier Skills 

We have not selected any players for our Premier Skills Fantasy Football team yet. It's your job to help select the players, choose the tactics and captain, and make transfers in and out of the squad. Each week on the website there will be votes and debates on how we should all manage the Premier Skills team. You will need to show your knowledge of football and the Premier League to pick the best players for the team. You will also need to use your English skills in the comments section below to persuade other members of the Premier Skills English community to listen to your advice. Each week, the Premier Skills English team (Jack and Rich) will change the Fantasy Football team based on your choices.

For even more fun, we have also set up a private Premier Skills English League on the Premier League's Fantasy Football website. Jack and Rich will play in the league and we will also have the Premier Skills team in the league so you can see if you are doing better on your own or as part of the team. We will have some prizes to give away throughout the season! If you want to enter your own team, you need to follow these instructions:

1) Register your team name on www.premierleague.com.

2) Select your squad on www.premierleague.com.

3) Click on Leagues.

4) Click on Create and join new leagues.

5) Click on Join a league

5) Find the Premier Skills English private league by using this Private league code: 553220-118684

6) Send a comment to us in the comments section below and tell us your team name and we will register you in the Premier Skills English private league! Easy!

The Language

Talking about football is a great way to learn English. Each week, in the Premier Skills English Podcast, there will be a section about Fantasy Football and lots of Football English for you to learn. In the glossary section on the right-hand side of this page, you will find useful words and definitions you can use to talk about Fantasy Football and football in general. We will change the glossary each week and one of your tasks will be to try to use this vocabulary in the comments section to discuss the Fantasy Football team.

The Debate

This is the most important part of our Fantasy Football adventure. We want you to discuss the Premier Skills English Fantasy Football team and Fantasy Football in general with other users on the website in the comments section. This will allow us to choose the team but it's also great English practice for you. By talking together about football, your English will get better and better! 

Sign up now on the Fantasy Football Website, follow the instructions we have given you and join the Premier Skills League! Tell us your team name in the comments section below.

Hi Richard,

Great to have you with us! Sorry, I made a mistake with the code because I thought the code for our Private League would be the same as last season. The new code is: 553220-118684 I've also added it to this page and the World Cup/ Fantasy Football Page on the homepage in case you want to get some of your friends or classmates/colleagues involved. The more the merrier!

Hope you enjoy the website!

Hi Yaewint 

The fantasy football league competition is just for fun. However, if your team scores the most points in one Matchweek, we will mention you in our Monday round-up programme and on the website!

We do sometimes have competitions with prizes during the season but you have to keep an eye on our homepage for those.

Good luck with your fantasy football team!

Glossary

This week's Fantasy Football Vocabulary is all about choosing a team, let's start with three words that, in a football context, mean to choose:

to pick

a manager picks his team but you can also pick apples from a tree

to select

a manager selects his captain but you can also select text on a computer screen

to go for

you might go for Eden Hazard in your Fantasy Football team but you can also go for a run in the park

In Fantasy Football, you need to select specific types of players which use specific abbreviations:

goalkeeper (GK)

he plays in goal and can use his hands, examples are David De Gea and Petr Cech

defender (DF)

he tackles and tries to stop the other team scoring, examples are Vincent Kompany and Branislav Ivanovic

midfielder (MF)

he tackles, passes and shoots; they are usually in the centre of the pitch, examples are Cesc Fabregas and Riyad Mahrez

striker (ST)

he shoots and scores goals, examples are Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero

Which players do you think we should pick this week?
