Firstly THANK YOU for your enthusiasm and engagement in the MicroNations League! In it’s first year it has achieved participants in double figures… a great basis to make this an established fixtures in the MicroNational sporting calendar.
We have also been delighted with the imaginative football kit designs, they give a real sense of identity to the different competitors – please keep them coming!
So… with two days to go before first kick off it’s time to get down to business!
Most importantly we encourage you to read through the Game Rules and FAQS on the Fantasy Football site. Knowing how and when you can make transfers, what your budget is, transfer deadlines etc will be essential in boosting your chances of winning the League…
Tactics are important here – you don’t want to make all your transfers too early and be left without any in the event a player gets injured, but you also don’t want to hang on to them too late!
First kick off is FRIDAY 13TH AUGUST at 8.00pm (20:00) UK Time. If you are from overseas there are plenty of free online time zone convertors you can use. Your draft teams MUST be finalised by then as unlimited transfers cease at that point and you will be klimited to 40 transfers for the season (max 5 per week).
First match is Brentford v Arsenal – remember it’s a marathon not a sprint so don’t feel you have to pick players for this game, there are another 9 games over this weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
Tips, banter, and questions not covered in the FAQs can be posted in the Message Board on the Fantasy Football league website, or in the MicroNations League Cup facebook group. Please be respectful – anyone misusing these forums or being abusive will be barred from the game.
I will send out an update every Monday (or Tuesday if there are games on a Monday) giving a write up on the weekend events in the League, this will be posted or in the MicroNations League Cup facebook group.
The team in top position in the League at the season will win the MicroNations League Cup Trophy, inscribed with their details. This will be provided and mailed to the winner at no charge to themselves.
Any pre-season questions now is the time to ask – on message board or facebook.
Other than that….let the battle commence and may the best team / Micronation win!!!!
Most importantly – ENJOY THE COMPETITION 😊
