DREAM TEAM WORLD CUP is now live!
With £50,000 in prize money up for grabs and free entry to everyone aged over 18 in the UK and Republic of Ireland, the best fantasy football game available is guaranteed to enhance your experience of this winter’s drama in Qatar.
Since this year’s edition of the prestigious tournament is set to be a unique one, gaffers need to be aware of how Dream Team World Cup will work given the unusual circumstances.
Allow us to explain…
Dream Team World Cup is free to play
The first thing to note is that the deadline for the 32 participating countries to submit their final squads is November 13th, meaning Dream Team World Cup won’t contain the complete allocation of players until November 14th.
Since that only leaves a week until the tournament gets underway with Qatar v Ecuador on November 20th, we’re inviting you to select a provisional team in the meantime so you can start plotting your route to glory.
Teams selected from now until November 14th are classified as ‘provisional’ because player prices will not be locked in until all the squads are officially confirmed.
That’s why each player has been assigned a price range for the time being, so that gaffers can get an idea of a potentially workable XI.
For example, Thiago Silva’s price currently displays as £5m – £5.5m but his exact price won’t be confirmed until November 14th.
Players have been assigned price ranges for the time being
When selecting your provisional team, you will see the total value of your XI displayed as a range – E.G £48m – £53.5m.
This would mean that if all your selected players end up at the higher end of their range your XI will come in £3.5m over the £50million budget.
At this stage you will be invited to edit your team so that it falls within the limit – please note that any XI with a finalised total value over £50m will not be eligible to score points.
Alternatively, if all your selected players are finalised at the lower end of their price ranges, you would have a further £2m to invest on improvements available to you.
The most important thing is that your team falls within the £50million limit by the time the tournament starts.
You will not be able to submit a provisional team if the lowest value in your total range is above £50m – we recommend aiming for a lower end value of between £47m – £48m as this is likely to bring you closest to the £50m limit once squads and prices are finalised.
