Geeks and geezers alike,
Summer’s here! And that means, no FPL distraction. But should that mean no distraction from football? Not at all. With a really exciting transfer window on the horizon (especially in the PL), we’re looking to create history at FFS UEFA. We’re delighted to introduce our first non fantasy football based competition.
Wake up managers. Presenting to you – FFS UEFA Transfer Window Simulation.
Participating in this competition are the 20 PL clubs (2013-14).
Each club has an Owner, Chief Scout and Manager (3 members as a minimum, the roles are flexible). Each club may choose to have multiple Scouts (the maximum is up to the club to decide). The owner holds the budget and is the link between the club and FFS UEFA. The scouts quite literally scout for potential players. The manager builds the morale in the team and steps in for the owner when necessary. It is up to the club to decide each member’s roles.
Sounds fun. How the hell does it work?
The aim of every club is to build a team of 15 real-life football players using their budget. The club with the best market value (in €) at the end wins the game.
To start off with, each club is given a budget of 100 bidding tokens. You need to build a team of 2 Goalkeepers, 5 Defenders, 5 Midfielders and 3 Strikers using the budget. (No Captain)
Current market value and position of every player can be found here. A twist here is that the market value might change over the course of the summer, so the clubs might want to monitor. For example, if Bale ends up transferring to Real Madrid for 70 mil, his existing market value could potentially rocket. If the player position on TransferMarkt is re-classified after a player has been targeted by a club, the original position is retained.
An example of how a club may look on deadline day is illustrated here.
When does the game run?
The game runs from Jun 7th to Aug 30th in several “Rounds”
Building your team
Each club can build its team in three ways – 1) Bidding 2) Transfer Windows 3) Release of Players
