3. How to enter

3.1 Subject to the terms of FG’s Gambling Policy, there is no limit to the number of paid teams a Manager may submit to the Competition, provided that each entry adheres to these Terms and Conditions. Please note that some banks and building societies may make an additional charge for playing fantasy games online. Entrants should check with their bank or building society prior to entry.

4.1 FG reserves the right to refuse to accept any team names, Private League names or Manager names which have been duplicated or are felt, in FG's sole discretion, to be inappropriate, misleading or offensive. Unsuitable names may be deleted or amended so that the team appears under the Manager's or the Chairman's name. Team names that include website addresses may also be deleted or amended.

5. Player selection

5.1 The players included on the selection list and their values have been determined arbitrarily. Player values remain constant throughout the Competition. FG shall not enter into any correspondence relating to details of the selection list, nor will it accept the inclusion into a team of any player not on the selection list. New players may be introduced into the Competition by FG as and when appropriate. These may be listed from time to time on the Website.

6. Team selection

6.1 Managers' team selections must consist of eleven players chosen from the selection list. The combined total value of their eleven player team selection must not exceed €40 million at any time throughout the Competition. The team of eleven must include one goalkeeper and: four defenders, three midfielders and three strikers (4-3-3) or; four defenders, four midfielders and two strikers (4-4-2) or; three defenders, five midfielders and two strikers (3-5-2) or; four defenders, five midfielders and one striker (4-5-1) or; three defenders, four midfielders and three strikers (3-4-3) or; five defenders, three midfielders and two strikers (5-3-2). Managers may switch between formations when making transfers.

6.2 A player can only appear in the same team once at any one time - player duplication is not permitted. There is no additional restriction on the number of players chosen from the same club.

6.3 Managers not wishing to select their own team but wishing to participate in the Competition may do so by clicking the Auto-Complete button during the Application process. An eligible team will be selected for you at random and details of that selection will be shown on-screen.

6.4 Managers of valid team selections that provide a valid email address will be sent a Team Confirmation Email but should be aware that some ISPs and central servers have 'fire walls' or other blocking software, which do not allow distribution of game related communications. Entries will not be confirmed by post.

7. Scoring points

7.1 Points will be awarded based on all Premier League matches (featuring Premier League teams) played from 19:45(BST) on Friday, August 11, 2017 up to and including the final match, scheduled for Saturday, May 19, 2018.

7.2 Points from abandoned matches will not count towards scoring in the Competition. In the event of an abandoned match, the updated Scheduled Event Kick Off time will be published on the Website. If any kick-off is delayed to a later time in the same day the original Scheduled Event Kick Off time for that match (as stated on the Website) stands. Therefore any transfers made after the Scheduled Event Kick Off in this scenario will not count for that match.

7.3 Points will be awarded and deducted per match as follows:

7.4 Key Contributions (“KCs”) for goals will be awarded at the sole discretion of the judging panel appointed by FanGo. Up to two players may be awarded a KC for the same goal. For general guidance only, the following will be considered by the judges, among other factors when deciding on KCs: no KC is given to a player who simply touches the ball sideways from a free kick, or to the penalty taker when penalties are saved or come back off the woodwork before a goal is scored; if during the build up to a goal, an opposing player significantly alters the speed or direction of the ball to the extent that it does not reach what the judges consider to be the intended target area, then no KC is given; if a goalkeeper does not have control of the ball and parries a shot or drops a cross or the ball rebounds off the woodwork, the attacking player shooting or crossing the ball may receive the KC if a goal ensues -this does not apply if the goalkeeper successfully punches the ball clear (achieving a deliberate contact on the ball); in the event of a penalty, the player who was fouled (if applicable), may receive a KC if the resultant penalty is scored unless he takes the penalty himself in which case no KC is given; no KC is given for a player who earns a free kick that subsequently results in a goal; no KC will be awarded for a player who checks or shields another player, makes a run to create space for another player or shields the ball without touching it. A KC may be awarded in the event of an own goal.

7.5 The judges' decision shall be final and FanGo will not enter into any correspondence regarding points deducted or allocated to players.

7.6 Scores will be updated daily, online at the Website and the mobile application.

8. Live scoring

8.1 As far as possible, during all eligible Premier League matches, Managers have the option to view the progress of their TFF team and watch score updates on the Website or mobile application. While matches are being played, a Manager’s team on the “TFF Live” page will display the XI that was eligible at the start of the live Event, but if transfers are made during the live Event the outgoing payers will be replaced on the pitch in “TFF Live”, however they will still score points for that Event.

8.2 Important: live score updates are offered purely to enhance Managers’ enjoyment of the Competition and points should be regarded as indicative only. All live points are subject to overnight verification and Key Contributions will not be awarded until then. Classified scores will be published following verification by the judging panel appointed by FanGo in accordance with Clause 7, “Scoring Points”. Only classified scores will be published outside of the TFF Live page on the Competition website . In the event that live scores vary from classified scores on the Competition website, the decision of the judges will be final and FanGo is not obliged to enter into any correspondence regarding points allocated to, or deducted from, players.

9. Transfers

9.1 Managers may alter their teams by effecting transfers, which may be actioned online via the Website or mobile application. A total of 40 transfers per team are available during the Competition.

9.2 A maximum of five transfers per team can be made during any one Game Week (Tuesday to Monday). Transfers beyond the maximum number allowed in any Game Week will be rejected as will any transfer requests beyond the seasonal maximum of 40.

9.2 Transfer requests shall be acknowledged via on-screen confirmation. FanGo shall not be responsible for transfer applications lost in transmission or received late due to high online traffic levels or for incomplete transfer applications.

9.3 A pre-season transfer amnesty shall operate until the first Scheduled Event Kick-off at 19:45 (BST) on Friday, August 11, 2017, which allows Managers to make unlimited changes to their line-up without affecting their season transfer allocation. Following this, transfers may be submitted at any time up until the final Scheduled Event Kick-off, expected to be on Saturday, May 19, 2018.

9.4. Players must be transferred before a Scheduled Event Kick-off time in order to score points in that Event. Players transferred after a Scheduled Event Kick-off time will score points from the next Scheduled Event Kick-off time. If any kick-off is delayed to a later time in the same day the original Scheduled Event Kick Off for that match (as stated on the Website) stands for the purposes of that transfer deadline. For the avoidance of doubt, there must be at least a two-hour gap between two scheduled match kick-off times in order for transfers to be made between matches and score from the next Scheduled Event Kick-Off. If the gap is less than two hours and/or if matches overlap, then the earliest kick-off time of these matches will be deemed the transfer deadline.

9.5 With all transfers, Managers must ensure that their teams continue to meet the selection criteria.

9.7 Once submitted, transfer requests cannot be altered under any circumstances.
