First thoughts about Fifa World Cup Fantasy
- The layout of the game is more similar to FPL than UCL Fantasy
- Rules are very similar to the rules we are used to from Fantasy Champions League and Euro Fantasy
- Clean sheet points for goalkeepers are awarded after 70 minutes (not 60) – for defenders it is 60
- 5 extra points for a clean sheet (not 4 as we are used to)
- 7 points for a defender scoring a goal (not 6 as we are used to)
- Each additional goals conceded (apart the first one) is a -1 point for defenders and goalkeepers
- 5 points for goal scored for midfielders AND forwards
- 1 point for 3 tackles for midfielders
- 1 point for 2 shots on target for forwards
- Read more about points scoring system changes in our article: How are points awarded in FIFA World Cup Fantasy?
- Manual substitutions and captaincy changes like in UCL Fantasy
- Player prices are a bit lower than we expected – you can built pretty strong team with initial budget
- There is a new chip – 12th man
- Power captain chip as we saw at Euro fantasy
- 3 points deduction for additional transfers (not 4)
- Possibility to make transfers within the matchday, not just between matchdays!
