Deadline notes

  • Deadlines in World Cup fantasy are at the kickoff of the first game on that Matchday – just as in UCL Fantasy. So, not 90 minutes before kickoff like in FPL.
  • You will know line ups of teams playing first on each matchday, which can help you with your transfers or substitutions as you will know, which players will definitely start from some teams.
  • As we can make transfer within matchdays, you can wait until you know the lineup before you make desired move (if you make transfers between unlocked players. Also make sure you do not lost free transfer by waiting as only 1 transfer can be carried forward in Group Stage).
