Premier League fantasy football: Everything you need to know as Dream Team returns for the 2020/21 season

Already getting Premier League and fantasy football withdrawal symptoms? 

We hear you, which is why we’re gearing up for the return of Dream Team ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Despite the quick turnaround, we’ve been hard at work since the season ended to make the upcoming campaign the best one yet, so here’s everything you need to know.

Where can I play Dream Team fantasy football ahead of the 2020/21 season?

Dream Team is across all platforms, whether you’re a desktop or app person.

We’re not quite ready for sign ups just yet, but check back here very soon.

When does fantasy football start for the new season?

The new Premier League season is set to kick-off on September 12 – although no fixtures have been released just yet.

The new Dream Team game isn’t live just yet either but you should be able to sign up and start picking your teams by the middle of August.

The game will be completely free to play as ever and there’ll be a hefty jackpot up for grabs if you finish inside the top 10 at the end of the season.

However, for those of you who really like to get stuck into your fantasy football, we’re excited to introduce our new subscription service Dream Team Coach for the upcoming season.

What is the Dream Team Coach and how much will it be?

Dream Team Coach is every fantasy football fan’s dream.

This service will provide Dream Team managers with detailed insights, venue and opposition stats, score projections, player comparisons and various other analysis tools to help you get the edge over your fellow Dream Team players.

Everyone who plays Dream Team will have access to a FREE two-week trial, and the full service after that is charged at £9.99 for the season.

More details will be revealed soon.

What fantasy football games are there to play?

This season, as always, you can play our traditional Season game – the one you all know and love.

As well as that, and after a successful debut year, we’ll be rolling out another season of Draft – our brilliant alternative game.

We won’t bog you down with too many details about Draft here, but essentially the game pits you in a league against other managers as you try to build a 15-man squad.

But the key difference is if you own a player, nobody else in your league can have them.

That’s right, if you’re lucky enough to have Bruno Fernandes in your team, then that means Brian from HR doesn’t.

Game weeks work on a head-to-head basis which means leagues must consist of an even number to work.

More details on Dream Team Draft can be found here.

Who were the best fantasy football players last season?

If you had Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and/or Mohamed Salah in your team last season, then you were doing pretty alright.

We’ve recently released our Dream Team ‘best XI’ of 2019/20, which you can see here.

What are the best fantasy team names out there?

We all love choosing a hilarious team name and having the funniest of the office mini-league is a pretty big deal, we think.

Whether you’re more 50 Shades O’Shea than Pjanic at the Disco kinda manager, you can find many of the classics in this extensive list.
