  • From your starting 11 players you will need to nominate a captain. Your captain's points will be doubled
  • If your captain plays 0 minutes in the gameweek, there will be no double points for any other player as a replacement

  • The substitute players will automatically take place of players who don't play in the gameweek
  • Based on the four basic positions (GK, DF, MD, ST), you will also have four substitutions (one for each)
  • Automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek following these rules:
    • Players can only be substituted with another player from the same position Example : If your Striker plays 0 minutes in the gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Striker, if he played in the gameweek
    • No points will be given if both your first choice player and substitution player of the same position are not playing Example : If your first choice Goalkeeper plays 0 minutes in the gameweek, and so does your substitute Goalkeeper, no points will be given for your team's Goalkeeper position

Transfer Players

You can transfer 4 players for each week. The transfer window is open until next deadline each week. Please do not exceed your maximum budget when you do transferring.

Game Week Period

Each game week is from next deadline of each week. The transfers you made in your team will only take effect after the game week starts.

Scoring

You will be awarded with points in Stadium Astro Fantasy – BPL Edition Prediction Game based on 2 major criteria as follows:

  • CRP (Correct Result Prediction) - Correct prediction based on match's result - win, lose or draw – 1 point

For instance, if you predict the score between Arsenal and Manchester Utd to be 1 – 0, favouring to Arsenal, and the actual match ends with 2 – 1 result, favouring to Arsenal, you will receive CRP points (1 point) for predicting the correct result (Arsenal win). You will not receive any CSP points because of the final score is not accurately the same as you predicted.

On the other hand, if you predict the score for the same game to be 2 – 1, favouring to Arsenal, you will receive both CSP points (3 points) and CRP points (1 point) for predicting the correct winner and the correct final score, totalling your points for that match to be 4 points.
