How to play Goal Fantasy Football

Create a team to compete in the English Premier League, Goal Super League and the Champions League for a chance to win great Fantasy Football prizes.

It’s quick and easy to create a team to win. Your challenge is to pick the best team based on your knowledge of the players, teams and groups in the tournament so you can score as many points as possible.

Just download the app, then login with Facebook or register your details.

You can take on other Goal fans in our Global League or create a mini-league and challenge your friends to play.

When you first open the app you will be invited to Create a New Team. Select the European Championships competition from the list and an animated guide will give you an overview of the game, then it will take you to the Pick your Team screen.

You have a starting budget of £75M to spend on 11 players, you must pick players to make a valid formation (4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-5-1 etc). The app will let you know if your formation is valid as you pick your players.

To begin, you can filter players using the Player Position filters: GK, DEF, MID, FOR.

When you click a position tab the players will automatically organised by the country they represent. You can click on the SORT button to order players Alphabetically, by Country, by Points, Value and Form.

You can click on a player’s name to get their stats for the tournament or you can just click on their value to pick them for your team.

At the top of the screen in the info bar, you can track how much you’ve spent and how many players you’ve chosen. It will also tell you if you have selected enough players for each position to make up a valid formation.

You can check your team formation at any point by clicking on the pitch icon. 

Points are awarded based on real-life games. For example if you have selected an England player in your team, you will be awarded two points if that player starts the game.

Making transfers is a vital part of the game, it can mean the difference between scoring a few points or lots of points!

Goal Fantasy Football is different from older Fantasy games, because we let you make changes to your team in between games. If you use your transfers wisely you can have at least 13 players scoring each round instead of only 11!  

For example if you have picked Wayne Rooney in your team and England kick-off at 2:00pm, you can transfer him out at say 2:45pm and replace him with Cristiano Ronaldo whose Portugal team will play in a match that kicks-off later at 4:00pm.You will be still collect all the points that Wayne Rooney is awarded and you will also collect any points awarded to Cristiano Ronaldo because you have selected Ronaldo before his team is scheduled to play.

For every round of games your team team will be allocated a fixed number of credits, you can view the schedule from the in-app Match Centre. Usually, you will receive 2 free transfers with the option of purchasing a maximum of 1 additional transfer (See App for details).
