FIFA are running a free World Cup fantasy football competition. It's heavily McDoodah branded but if you can get past that there's some nice features. Not least the fact that it's free and you can set up private leagues to compete with your friends.

http://en.mcdonalds.fantasy.fifa.com/M/home.mc

Team selection starts on June 4th and the competition runs through to the final on July 10th. Early rounds are done in a league format and later rounds determined by a head to head knockout. In the later rounds you'll need to change your team as players in your squad will be in teams that get knocked out of the World Cup itself.

I've created a Docet Umbra League. The code is 270282-64318.

Also decided to set up a Turalyon Europe one and that's advertised on the main Turalyon forums. The code for that is 270282-64409.

Post if you're interested in joining and sign up and add the league codes.

Cheers
Inter

Get signing up ahead of the World Cup squad announcements next week!

What is Fantasy Football?

For those who have never played Fantasy Football before here is a very quick explanation. You pick a squad of player (in this case from World Cup teams) and then you score points depending upon how well each individual player does in the World Cup matches they play. Add those points up and you've got your team score. Players are priced so that those likely to score more point are more expensive and you have a budget to prevent you just picking all the best players in the world for your team and there's a limited on the number of players you can choose from a single nation (to stop your fantasy team just being your national side or, say, Brazil).

The game continues in a league format until the knockout stages of the tournament when teams are matched against each other in a knockout format, the team with most points in each round going through to the next.

What do you have to do?

All you need to do is sign up on the site, and then next week pick your team. If you reach the knockout stages in a few weeks time you'll have the option to transfer in some more players to make up for those you've lost because their teams were knocked out of the World Cup (meaning they couldn't score any more points for you).

Knowledge of football is neither required nor necessarily advantageous.

Join up, pick a silly team name and impress everyone with your unintentional managerial skill when your team strategy of only picking players whose name begins with the letter "S" turns out to be a winner! :-o

Team selection is now available. You have six days and some hours to pick your squad and first eleven before the opening match.

Looks like they did a last minute nerf and reduced the budget from 150 to 140.

A final reminder that you've only got 24 hours left to pick your squad and starting team ahead of the opening match tomorrow.

If anyone else wants to join us you've still got time. We currently have 10 teams in the Docet Umbra league and 32 in the Turalyon league. You can sign up for both leagues with the same team.

Inter.

Thom shoots into first place on the Docet and Turalyon leagues from nowhere! Is half your team made up of players from Germany, Slovenia and Ghana?

Can I win if all the football players spontaneously drop dead? It would make sense since i picked no-one.

No. The only way for you to win is to start playing* or hope that all of our players score an own goal and/or get red carded in every match they play from here on in.

*Pick a squad of players who's names rhyme with Pants and see how many people you beat. :P
