Slugger Fantasy Football League: Open to All

Having secured Mick’s blessing and in the interests of providing some light relief, I have set up Slugger’s own Fantasy Football league for the coming Premiership season. The league will be open to all contributors, with the only proviso being that the naming of managers and teams be done in good taste (else you risk being banned from the league.)

The rules of the game are clearly explained on the Fantasy FA Premier league site.

Simply register your username and password, then set about purchasing a squad of players from the money available. When this is completed, select League icon to join the Slugger league, whereupon you will be asked to enter a Code to gain entrance to the league.

The code for The Slugger League is as follows: 275765-48351.

Once you have entered this, that’s it: you have entered your team into the league. You may also enter your team into any other league at the same time, or at a later stage.

Throughout the season, you can make as many changes as you want to your team, selling and buying players (so long as you can afford it.) Whilst this can freely be done up until the first day of the season (19th August), once the league begins, you will be limited to one ‘free’ transfer a week, with any additional transfers resulting in 4 points being deducted from your team per purchase.

I don’t want to be a killjoy, but I would stress that it is very easy for me to delete teams. I will only do so if people choose to register sectarian or paramilitary titles for their clubs and/or managers. Whilst silly club names are not a problem- indeed actually should be encouraged- I see no reason in allowing someone to enter a silly name for themselves as manager simply because no one will know their Slugger identity. However, anyone wanting to preserve their identity should be entitled to do so, but I would ask them to use the same nom de plume they do when contributing to Slugger as it will make for a more interesting league.

Good luck to all!

    would that mean I would get 2 teams seeing as I have a stalker impersonator on slugger at the moment

  • Belfast Gonzo

  • dantheman

    What is the prize??

  • Chris Donnelly


    We’re up to eight teams now.

    Never thought of a prize (thanks Dan), but I’ll get a trophy and post it to the winner.

  • qubol

    QUZILLA for the League

  • I’m in.

  • Chris Donnelly

    We’re up to 25 teams already, with some witty selections for team names.

    The more the merrier!

  • Dualta

    I’m taking issue with your team’s name as it has strong political and sectarian overtones and has no place in fun and friendly environment such as a Fantasy Football thingie.

    In Parcel of Rogues, the P in Parcel is also the first letter of Provies and the R in Rogues is the first letter of Republicans! Did you seriously think that you’d get away with this bucko?!

  • Chris Donnelly


    I’m hoping you’re speaking in jest….
    But as you’ve clearly joined the league, I look forward to answering your criticisms on the pitch- cue pistols at dawn, glove across the cheek and all that….

  • Dualta

    Chris: “cue pistols at dawn”.

    Be careful or Vance or Keith M will be pointing that out as evidence of a lack of decommissioning……

  • Right I’m in.
    But tell me this, am I the only lass? Surely not?

  • Ady

    Hope the English are welcome lol.

  • Me in.


  • nmc

    I’m on. It’s some size now it’s over 25. Should be interesting. I intend to be insufferably confident, although I’m crap at this.

    You’re all screwed may as well give up now, it’s as good as won. I am the champion etc…

  • Flippin hell, just got E mail from Fantasy League telling me two of my lads are out for tomorrow.
    Going to have to drag two subs out of the pub now…
