I am setting this up in plenty of time this year.

To avoid confusion and time spent voting etc., I have picked a date and time and ruleset for this league. The entry fee will be the same as last season - £25 per team. I will confirm prizes after the draft but before the season starts when I know how many teams we have (unless I get a full quota of 16 players prior to then in which case I can then work out the prizes before the draft itself - which would be better). All entry fees will be paid back out as prizes.

I am using Fantasy Premier Leagues draft game for my league.

You may have noticed from the above league info is this year the FPL Draft game has introduced trading so you can trade players with other teams. I have activated this in my league where it goes to a vote system - this means managers can vote against a trade (hopefully they only do this if they think the trade is unfair) but to get a trade vetoed it takes 50% of managers to vote against it - not only that a trade is approved at the waiver deadline and the system takes any non team manager votes as approval. So it is much more likely trades will go through than not - and also means managers should pay attention to trades when notified and use their veto option if they don’t agree with it.

I have stuck with the standard default of 90 seconds per pick - I know some find this to long but equally others don’t so decided to keep to the default setting (the system allows for me to set it from 30 seconds through to 120 seconds).

I have had to reschedule the draft as the site went down Saturday evening plus no one was available to draft live other than myself so hoping the poll below with two alternative dates/times will ultimately suit more people - even though less ideal for me.

I have decided to send this info out by e-mail and post it on TFP and the first 15 to commit and pay up are in.

I will send another e-mail out to all in my mailing list to alert people to the change and this poll for a new date/time. Hopefully one of these 2 options will suit more people than Saturday 7pm did. The poll will close Wednesday evening and then I can set the draft date and time in stone that has the most votes. If it’s a tie I will leave it as it is (the Thursday night option).

People can contact me for a direct invite to the league but am not publicly advertising the league code as had a few problems of late with people joining my money leagues and then not making contact and more importantly not paying up. So if I know you then fine just ask for the leagues code but if your new to my money games / leagues and have no history with me then I’m afraid its pay first and then I’ll send you the league code.

All that remains is for you to decide - are you in - or out?

PS - PM me for payment instructions if you don’t know the score.

Okay to many people found 7pm today (Saturday) to inconvenient and with the Premier league starting on a Friday night this year leaves very little time to rearrange a draft. Naturally I want as many players as possible so have proposed 2 options.

Option with most votes will be used - poll closes 10pm UK time Wednesday night. I will set league up now with the earlier time and adjust that same night to the Friday if that option wins through.

Hopefully these times will suit more people (though not so good as weekend would of been for me).

  • Thursday night 23:00 UK time
  • Friday morning 09:00 UK time

Well that’s confirmed then - 11pm UK time Thursday night 9 August 2018.

Alas only got 5 entrants for 2018/19 season so that brought the prize pool down by £50 compared to the 2017/18 season. Really hoping I can grow this for 2019/20.

But this years prizes are:

1st = £75
2nd = £25
Highest Weekly Score = £25

Congratulations to Mozza_19 Iain Morris for winning BLM’S PREM DRAFT LEAGUE 2018/19 (FPL) game. Sadly this years 1st prize is only £75 due to only getting 5 entries (2 less than last season). Really hope we can grow the entry pool to double figures for the 2019/20 season.
