How to pick a good FPL team name?

  • Be creative
  • Your team name reflects your identity, so choose a team name that is related to you or the topic you like
  • If you want to be known in the FPL community, use the same FPL team every season and built a brand around it
  • Be careful and do not use an offensive team name because offensive team names can be reported by any player and FPL could take action against managers with inappropriate team names.
  • FPL Team name character limit: 20 characters

My team name

Each year, I select the same team name for FPL, Fantasy Champions League or World Cup/Euro Fantasy. And that is Mateho XI – I know that it is very simple, basic. But its a combination of my nickname and reference to the movie Ocean’s Eleven. My friends can easily identify my team in every fantasy football competition.
