Table of Contents

I General

  • 1. Each manager is allowed only one team.
  • 2. Each team must have 18 players (11 starters and 7 substitutes). The 18 players include 2 goalkeepers, 6 defenders, 6 midfielders and 4 strikers.
  • 3. Each team can have no more than 3 players from the same club.
  • 4. Each team has a starting budget of 120 million. This budget will change over time based on the performance of each player on the team.
  • 5. The value of a player varies over time based on the real-world performance of the player. If the player is underperforming, his value decreases. If the player is over-performing, his value increases. Therefore, the budget for each manager’s team may vary over time based on the total changes in the value of the players on the team.
  • 6. Each manager may select from the following formations: 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-5-1, 3-4-3, 3-5-2, 5-3-2, 5-4-1.
  • 7. Each manager is allowed 1 free transfer per round. Each additional transfer during that round will deduct 4 points from the team's overall points.
  • 8. Each manager gets 1 transfer wildcard, with the ability to purchase more using their "Coins" - each wildcard can be activated for any round, and it allows the manager to make as many free transfers as they want during that round.
  • 9. Each round will start 15 minutes before kick-off of the first match and will end after the last match of the round is played.
  • 10. If you sign up while a round is in progress, your team will only become active starting the following round.

II Scoring

  • 1. Players will score points based on their performance in real matches.
  • 2. In case of postponed matches, the players who were supposed to play in those matches will get 0 points. However, once the match is played, it will count for the round closest to the new match date. Only players who are on the team at that point (not players who were there when the match was supposed to be played) will score points.
  • 3. The manager may choose between 3 team dispositions, each giving a different mentality to their team: Attacking, Balanced or Defensive. This choice can be made for each round individually, and it affects the number of points players score for different achievements (goals, clean sheets etc.)
  • 4. Scoring table (disposition: balanced)

  • 6. Scoring table (disposition: defensive)
    PosStartSubGoalPen GoalPen MissAssistYCRCOGCl. Sheet3 ConcVictory
  • 7. Each team has a captain and vice-captain, which can be chosen for each round by the manager. The captain will score double points in that round; if the captain doesn't play, then the vice-captain will score double points in that round.
  • 8. An assist is the last pass made before a goal is scored. No assist is earned in the case of an own-goal.
  • 9. Players do not gain points for simply earning a penalty kick. They must score the penalty kick to gain points or miss it to lose points.
  • 10. Substitutes (players on the bench) will only score points if a starting player in the same position doesn't play a single minute in that round. For instance, if one of your midfielders doesn't play in a round, then one of the midfielders on your bench will be substituted on for him at the end of that round. The order of substitutes is from top to bottom on the bench, and it can be changed by dragging & dropping bench players.
  • 11. Substitutions can only be performed between rounds, not during a round, and they are performed by dragging & dropping players on your team page. The only exception is an on-the-fly substitution(may be purchased in the Store) which allows you to bring on a sub during a round, even for a player who has already played.
  • 12. Changes to team formations, and to captain and vice-captain, can only be made between rounds and not during a round.

*Only if the player was on the pitch for at least 45 minutes.

**Clean sheets are given to players who spend at least 45 minutes on the pitch without conceding a goal, even if their team concedes in the remainder of the match.

III Leagues

  • 1. Managers can create and/or join as many leagues as they want. It is completely free to create a league, but you can choose to set an entry fee for the league (in game currency, "coins"), in which case the entry fees are added up in order to create a “coin” prize for the winner. The “coin” prize is 75% of the sum of all entry fees, and is distributed after the league ends.
  • 2. Each team will be automatically assigned to a league based on the manager’s country and a fan league based on the manager’s favorite club.
  • 3. After creating a league, a manager will get a join-code that will allow the manager to invite other managers to join the newly created league. The code may be openly shared on the web (forums, blogs etc.)
  • 4. In order to join a league created by another manager, a manager needs to know the league's join-code.
  • 5. Public Classic leagues will be automatically created at the beginning of each round, for those members who didn't join or create any leagues between the day they signed up and the start of the next Round.
  • 6. A premium member may also apply to join leagues. The league administrator decides whether to accept the application. League administrators also have the choice to turn off applications completely for their league.
  • 7. All applications to public leagues will be accepted by Fantasy World Cup 2018 staff. Joining a public league this way costs the same amount of "Coins" as joining a user-created league, even though being assigned to a public league automatically costs nothing.
  • 8. There are two kinds of leagues: Classic and Head-to-head. Classic leagues work on the simple principle of adding up points the teams score in each round to create a ranking based on their total points. Head-to-head leagues are more like real-life leagues. The participating teams play against each other in each round, and the winner of each match is decided based on the points scored in that round. The winner gets 3 points and the loser gets 0, same as in real-life matches. In case of a draw, both teams get 1 point. There is a match center where you can follow the comparative progress of both your team and your opponent in any given round, along with statistics for both teams.
  • 9. For every head-to-head league, a fixture schedule is created at the beginning of the first round following league creation. Each team will play every other team twicein a similar manner to real-life leagues. After that the league winner will be known.
  • 10. It is possible to join only classic leagues after the league competition has already begun.
  • 11. When creating a classic league, you can choose how many rounds it will last (between 1 round and full season). For head-to-head leagues, the duration is determined automatically based on the number of teams.
  • 12. The administrator of a head-to-head league can remove teams from the league, but only before they've played any matches within the league.
  • 13. A league must have at least 2 members, or it will be disbanded before its first round begins.
  • 14. A head-to-head league has a limited number of members, depending on the number of remaining rounds. It is calculated as: N = (41- Current Round)/2. This ensures that there are enough rounds left until the end of the season for each team to play each of the other teams twice. So, before the season, the maximum number of members is 20 and, for instance, after 12 rounds the maximum number is 14.
  • 15. All leagues, as well as 1-on-1 matches, have trophies which will be automatically added to your profile after you triumph in a competition.
