Managers must beat the score of the opponent they have been randomly drawn against to knock them out and advance to the next round.

This carries on until a winner from the final in Gameweek 38 is declared.

The League Cup will be in addition to the Overall FPL Cup, which is open to all managers and is now active on the Fantasy page.


How to Enter

The FPL League Cup will feature all FPL managers in an invitational classic league.

This means that you will be automatically entered into the RealSport101 League Cup, provided you are already in the RealSport101 Fantasy league.

Unfortunately, if you are not already a member of the RealSport101 then you will not be able to take part in the League Cup.

FPL League Cup start date

League Cups should be automatically scheduled to happen in a Gameweek based on how many managers are in your mini-league.

So, if there are 16 people in your mini-league, the League Cup will start at Gameweek 35 as that equates to four rounds, counting back from Gameweek 38.

The RealSport101 League cup officially starts in Gameweek 31.

If there are between eight and 16 people in your mini-league, the highest-scoring managers for the previous Gameweek will get a bye through to the second round.

So, for example, if there are 14 managers, the two in your mini-league who have the highest scores in qualifying (in Gameweek 34) will get a bye through to Gameweek 36.

The remaining 12 managers will play each other in the first round (Gameweek 35), with the six winners joining the two who had a bye for the quarter-finals in Gameweek 36.
