Euro 2016 - Fantasy Football League and Sweepstake

We'll be running a joint competition for the European Championships this year that takes place in France. It will cost you just 5.00 to enter and in turn, you will be sent details to join our Fantasy Football League for the tournament which will be run using the Sun's Dream Team (https://www.dreamteamfc.com/) and at the same time, you will also be put into a sweepstake for the tournament as well. A double chance to win some cash!

There are only 10 days until the tournament gets underway so the deadline will be 12PM on Friday 10th June after which we will do the draw for the sweepstake. Once this deadline has passed, I will also be able to finalise the cash prizes for both competitions.

The Sun's website is very easy to use. You will need to register an account (or log in with your existing account if you have used it before) and then go on to select a team. You can auto-select your team for the time being and make as many changes as you like up to the big kick off itself.

In terms of making your payment of 5.00, you can do so via the following methods:

1) PayPal - Send your payment to admin@champman0102.co.uk. PLEASE ensure that you select the option to 'send money to friends or family' to pay the 5.00 entry fee in full without being charged by PayPal for a cut. If you haven't done this and end up sending me 4.63 or whatever, then I will NOT be sending you the PIN code to join the league until you make up the difference. It's IMPERATIVE that the pot has an even 5.00 from each of you.

2) Cash - I am happy to accept cash by post. Please send me a Private Message if you need my address.
3) Cheque - As above.
4) Bank/Wire Transfer - Payments can be made from bank to bank if necessary. Please send me a Private Message and I will provide you with the relevant bank details.

Once you have made your payment, be sure to inform me of your username so that I can then send you a Private Message on this website containing the PIN code to join the Fantasy Football League.

Good luck guys!

Pot
70.00

Breakdown (for both competitions)
1st - 20.00 each.
2nd - 10.00 each.
3rd - 5.00 each.

The above will be finalised once the deadline has passed.

Anyone not wanting to join the Sun could join the sweepstake and get 2 teams for 5?

Gonna be tight getting 24 people in before it starts anyhow

Mark
02-06-16, 09:18 AM
That's a good shout, Derm.

Didn't expect us to get 24 to be honest. I was going to give everyone 2 teams instead (if 12 or less) or if we do get more than 12 then cut the nations with long odds from the sweepstake itself.

SNOOKER?
(Davis retired from snooker)

He's the secret weapon my man. :spy:

I dunno who will play for the Germans, but you can make subs throughout anyway so I'll gamble that one of them gets picked 1st game.
Koman should play, Davis definitely will be playing.

Let's see yours then mate...

I'm betting on him to score so it makes sense. I think Pogba could be player of the tournament.

Mark
09-06-16, 10:06 AM
All good guys, I've sent the three of you a PM with the code now that your monies have come through :ok:

That takes the number involved up to 12 and a pot of 60.00. A nice round figure for the sweepstake given that there's 24 teams involved so we all get two teams each :ok: I may even seed the draws, splitting them into 12 favourites and then 12 unfavourable teams? What do you think? Or just make it blind pot luck?

The breakdown for the pot could be as follows:

1st - 15.00 for each competition.
2nd - 10.00 for each competition.
3rd - 5.00 for each competition.

That could all change if we have further entries before tomorrow's 12PM deadline though!

Redknapp69
09-06-16, 10:45 AM
2 teams each sounds good so could close this now

seeded sounds good as well - gives everyone a fighting chance then

done my team - just dont know who will start for a lot of nations so quite a bit of guess work!

Offside Trap
09-06-16, 03:16 PM
I like the idea of seeded teams, gives everyone that realistic shot aswell as a pot shot, if it turns out to be 2 teams each

Looking forward to this

Mark
09-06-16, 03:30 PM
It does seem a fairer way of doing things so that you won't get Northern Ireland as well as Albania :D

We'll get another 10 people in today :shocked:

Mark
10-06-16, 09:54 AM
We're up to 14 now so I'm afraid we can't do 2 teams each after all. As a result, I will have to cut 10 teams from the sweepstake which look to be: Wales, Iceland, Ukraine, Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Northern Ireland and Albania.

On the plus side, it adds another 10.00 to the pot which the winner will get:

1st - 20.00 for each competition.
2nd - 10.00 for each competition.
3rd - 5.00 for each competition.

DRAW TO BE MADE LIVE IN SHOUTBOX AT 12PM!!!

Don't forget as well that you have 10 hours and 5 minutes left to make unlimited transfers to the fantasy football league :ok:

316'sRegen
10-06-16, 09:58 AM
I'll take Northern Ireland :wave:

Mark
10-06-16, 10:16 AM
Or I could include the rest of those teams but they'd only go to those who don't get one of the top 4 favourites to win (France, Germany, Spain and England)?

316'sRegen
10-06-16, 10:19 AM
I'm only mucking about boss.

Would be hilarious if one of those won it though!

Mark
10-06-16, 12:34 PM
OK, the draw has been made for the sweepstake!

First of all, thanks to info0 for keeping a record of the assigned numbers to each nation before the draw was made which proves there has been no FIFA style tampering :D

Secondly, thanks to all those present (only 316'sRegen and colml :lol:) in the shoutbox to witness the draw and select a number for each of the members involved in the competition.

The order of the draw was as follows:

316'sRegen - Czech Republic
AJ - England
colml - France
Coys - Croatia
Dermotron - Belgium
ebfatz - Turkey
Fods - Switzerland
loyal_royal1 - Portugal
Mark - Poland
Offside Trap - Germany

Hey Mark, couple questions -

who's missing from the Mini League? only 13 registered

You have a top 3 prize poole for the sweepstake, how will you determined 3rd place
(as I dont think... there's a 3rd Pos Play Off)

What you gonna do ifffffffff 1 of the teams not selected win it :)

Pick Hummels :doh: Didn't think Mustafi would have been starting alongside Boateng, could have been a great start. Just wanted the 2 German DC's. That said for all Germany's attacking potential, John Giles would say 'they could be got at'

316'sRegen
13-06-16, 11:06 AM
Did you pick Boateng? He looked good in the match, probably gonna be their top defender in the tourney. The clearance off the line was a highlight but he looked on top of his game the whole night.
I had Muller, who was not at his best, traded him out for Ibra for tonights game, the plan was to go with Ronaldo but I'll wait til the 15th and see what happens.


Has everyone used their subs/transfers yet?

Offside Trap
13-06-16, 11:25 AM
How long have I got to make changes?

316'sRegen
13-06-16, 11:32 AM
you have 3 subs from the start until the 14th, then another 3 from 15th-18th, then another 3 from 19th-22nd.

After 25th (knockout stages) you have 11 transfers, allowing you to replace players as they get eliminated.

Coys
13-06-16, 12:34 PM
If you know what you are doing you can essentially get an extra 3 games out of your team each round by simply replacing players that have already played.

Just a tip for those who didn't know :ok:

Offside Trap
13-06-16, 12:38 PM
I was working that out earlier Coys ;) but when you make a transfer, like I've made 2 just now, are they effective straight away?

when it's close to a match kicking off it comes up "pending"
I think this is just a check they do to stop you changing players mid-game because I got one through with 5 mins to kick off :ok:

Coys
13-06-16, 12:48 PM
They are indeed. Just make sure they are done before kick off and wait until the team is announced or you end up like my mate who subbed in Gomez! :lol:

Poland looking decent for me yesterday. Northern Ireland were probably just poor though.

Doing OK in fantasy football. Didn't think about making changes to the team though, I'll get on to that for tomorrow :D

you only get three subs for the first 3 windows.

14-06-16, 09:34 AM
My 3 subs were gotze, morata and Ibrah. All subbed consecutively after Lewandowski. All 4 combined got me a total of 3 points playing upfront against both Ireland's, Ukraine and Czech. I give up.

Mark
14-06-16, 10:52 AM
It's a marathon, not a sprint, Coys :D A long way to go yet :ok:

Chuffed to bits to be 1st though. Griezmann and Lukaku have majorly let me down with 0 points. I've now used my 3 emergency transfers for tonight before the next round of group games get underway.

Redknapp69
14-06-16, 05:48 PM

Pogba :(

Bad strategy by me on the transfers.

You can make them after the team news comes out :doh:

Coys
15-06-16, 10:02 PM
What a turnaround from me!

Rami clean sheet and crosses to Grizemann and then Payet goes and scores to get MOM!

My 3 players delivered to the max

Mark
16-06-16, 10:36 AM
Anybody else get completely screwed with the news Grizemann and Pogba don't start?

Funnily enough I had both at the start of the tournament but transferred them out with my 3 transfers in the first round of transfers.

Great to see Payet score last night. I'd put Giroud in there too which didn't really work out, nor did the decision to put in Shaqiri (too biased?).

On the sweepstake - Poland in action for me today against Germany. Can they provide a shock?

Redknapp69

I'm way out of the running already after missing out on the first transfer window.

316'sRegen
17-06-16, 09:36 AM
Italy and Spain clean sheet, maybe a sneaky bonnuci/Chiellini goal.
Modric and Mandzukic to score a couple each :lol:

I pretty much need those to happen today to have a chance!

Mark
17-06-16, 10:05 AM
From a sweepstake perspective, the Poland result was decent for me last night. From a personal perspective, I'd much prefer Northern Ireland to make it through!

Fantasy football wise, it didn't go too well yesterday as I've dropped to 5th now. Just used my last transfer up so that's me done too.

Redknapp69
17-06-16, 11:51 AM
eh - so I can use transfers today for players that have not yet plaed in 2nd round?

if so, thats all a bit suspicious to me - and too much hard work chopping and changing team to get extra points

loyal_royal1
17-06-16, 12:34 PM
You can but you lose the points of the players you take out. I agree it's a bit much, shouldn't be any transfers until after the group stage

316'sRegen
17-06-16, 01:37 PM
It's so that you are interested in, and therefore watch, every match along the way.

Might be a bit much but if you don't take advantage of having players in the earlier and later games of each stage, surely you lose out?

I made mine all at the start of this window which I also think is a mistake, next time (19th) I'll be planning the three subs over the 4 days :D

colml
17-06-16, 09:55 PM
Gambling on Morata and Nolito paid off. That's all my players done until the next matchday so I expect to fall down the table!

Coys
21-06-16, 12:13 PM
Because they are resting everybody for their next game

316'sRegen
21-06-16, 12:29 PM
They won't rest Buffon, Bonnuci or Chiellini I don't think :D

Coys
21-06-16, 12:44 PM
From what I've read they are planning on giving as many players a game as possible to make them feel included and to give them a chance. They've won the group so this is a perfect opportunity.

They could line up with barzagli, ogbonna and darmian as a back 3

Coys
21-06-16, 12:47 PM
Not to mention chiellini and Bonnuci are a yellow away from suspensions

316'sRegen
21-06-16, 01:15 PM
Although I don't think too many of them will be rested, I still have Morata for Spain and Mandzukic and Modric for Croatia, Davis for NIR and Podolski for Germany.
I hope to pick up a few points along the way :D


(Every player on my team except Pogba is playing today!)

I think I have 1 sub left, maybe :spy:


That is an interesting point though tactically, in the 3rd game you are better subbing in players who's team still need a big result.
Of course I always learn these tips after it's too late :faint:

Fods
21-06-16, 11:51 PM
Down to 8th, only Morata keeping the dream alive.

Need some points from Bonucci.

Coys

If he plays

Fods
22-06-16, 12:23 AM
He will

316'sRegen
22-06-16, 11:25 AM
Yeah I think he will.

I actually had 2 transfers left so threw in a Hungarian and Belgian (Mertens) for today.

Third round has been reaaly terrible for the Buffoons, looking forward to the 11 subs phase next!

Offside Trap
22-06-16, 11:40 AM
Had a shocking last couple days, fallen to 10th, so the last transfer of this window complete - Moutinho comes in.....

AJ
22-06-16, 11:41 AM
brought in Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani, counting on them to destroy the Mighty Magyars.

Coys
22-06-16, 11:46 AM
You will see later. You think he's going to risk playing Bonnuci when they've won the group and he's 1 yellow away from missing the Spain game? Could also get injured.

Same applies to Buffon, Chiellini and De Rossi.

Happy to be proved wrong ofcourse :ok:

316'sRegen
22-06-16, 12:07 PM
Maybe, Coys, maybe.

He's going to get that yellow card eventually though, might want it now and refresh the count before the proper knockout games :ok:
Buffon won't be dropped, in any game.
I have both those and Chiellini as well.

Offside Trap
22-06-16, 01:18 PM
Will the current yellow cards not be abolished after the group stages? or do they carry over?

Coys

De Rossi, Buffon and Chielleni rested

Bonucci is playing because they have no other centre backs i guess

24-06-16, 08:19 PM
Don't forget that you lose points if you've transferred players out too.

Forgot to use my final transfers before I went away. Still, 9th is an improvement on where I was.

Going wait until tomorrow to do my next round of transfers.

Who's out of the sweepstake after the group stages then? 316'sRegen, ebfatz, Redknapp69 and trunky! 10 left standing!

Coys
24-06-16, 08:53 PM
You do not lose points if you transfer a player after he has played.

You might lose them temporarily whilst the live scoring is active but it will sort itself out.

Gonna be hard at this stage to draft in players that no-one else has in their side.

That's the only way to climb the leader board.

loyal_royal1
30-06-16, 06:44 PM
Disaster with my first 5 transfers, stupidly thought England would definitely have at least 2 games left and also brought in Candreva for Italy who didn't play. Tough call now from 3rd place stick and fill the team for the semis or gamble on teams going through now. Got Ronaldo and Lewandowski tonight while the top 2 only have 1 or the other by the looks of things so hopefully a goal fest tonight

Mark
01-07-16, 09:37 AM
Then there were 7! That's me out of the sweepstake now, so good luck to the rest of you!

Do you guys think that it would make more sense to split the pot between those that finish 1st and 2nd rather than the top 3? As someone pointed out earlier on, there is no third place playoff for the sweepstake.

316'sRegen
01-07-16, 12:31 PM
Yeah, it will be difficult to try and work out a third place Mark.

Goals Scored for/against, matches won, red/yellow cards ::bored:

Probably best to go 1st n 2nd just.

Strange that for all the extra teams added and third places qualifying from groups etc that they couldn't add a third place playoff game towards the end :noidea:
