The deadlines for making changes to your Fantasy Premier League team are one and a half hours (90 minutes) before the kick-off of the first match of each gameweek.

It’s important to note that the dates and times of matches (and therefore deadlines) can sometimes change due to various factors such as television scheduling, weather conditions…

Keep Track of FPL Deadlines

There are several ways to keep track of FPL deadlines. The most straightforward method is to check the FPL website or app, which displays the deadline for the next gameweek prominently. You can find the deadline for each gameweek in the rules of Official FPL. The deadline will be displayed in your local time (unless you use VPN).

Managing your team before the deadline

Here are a few tips for managing your team effectively:

  • Try to make your transfers and team changes well at least few hours before the deadline to avoid last-minute rushes and server crashes.
  • Keep an eye on the latest football news for information about injuries, suspensions, and team rotations.
  • Consider the long-term fixture schedule when making transfers, not just the next gameweek.

How long does FPL take to update after the deadline?

Normally, FPL takes to update the game approximately 30 – 45 minutes after the deadline. However, the specific timing may vary depending on various factors, such as server load and the complexity of the game week’s matches.
