FPL Challenge

The Premier League has launched the FPL Challenge, a fresh twist on the traditional Fantasy Premier League, catering to the more casual fan with a weekly format. This addition sits alongside the enduring FPL and FPL Draft formats, broadening the game’s appeal without altering the existing versions.

Historically, the FPL has enjoyed immense popularity, with over 11 million participants last season alone. Since its inception in 2002, it has remained a staple of football fan engagement, evolving from newspaper formats to becoming a key digital interaction point for fans worldwide.

The FPL Challenge is designed for the season’s climax, offering weekly prizes and themes without cumulative points, aiming to maintain interest throughout the season. This approach addresses the challenge of player retention over the season-long commitment of the traditional FPL.

FPL Challenge – A New Way To Play

  • New challenges each week. Examples:
    • Gameweek 30: Unlimited Budget
    • Gameweek 31: Forward Focus
      • Double points for all forwards
    • Gameweek 32: Red Rivalry
      • Double points for Liverpool and Man Utd players
  • No deadline
    • A player will be locked in when his team starts their first match of the Gameweek
  • League scores reset after each challenge
  • Win prizes every week
