The Fox Sports A-League Fantasy Competition is on line again. The website is here…
My login and password from last year still worked but if you are a new use you can join by clicking the “Play Now” button and following the prompts.
The software will insist that you form a team before letting you register, if you are pressed for time just select the Auto Team Select button and the software will automatically select a team for you. You have unlimited transfers between now and Game Day One so you can always came back at a later time and fine tune your selection without penalty.
Another peculiarity of the software is that it will only let you field a 4-4-2 formation at first. Don’t worry about this, fill out the team sheet including the bench and then you can sub a midfielder or attacker for a defender and the software will automatically adjust the formation to 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 depending on your choices.
I have created a league called SFCU and you can join this league by going here…
…then clicking the “Join A League” button, entering TVXLVH9Y into the Code text box and clicking Search.

The Rules and the allocation of Points for the Fantasy League can be found here…
Please note the following
The Salary Cap is a very generous 3 million dollars but remember, you have to have good players on the bench for each of the Defender, Midfielder and Attacker positions.
The trick with these leagues is guess who will score more fantasy points than any other player and then assign them as your captain. Last year that was Milos Ninkovic but there are some quality foreign signings this year who will challenge him for that position.
