It's been teased for a while and now it's finally been launched, the Footstock £100,000 Freeroll.
The £10,000 Freeroll that Footstock brought us for season long football was a huge success, so this year they've gone one better by upping the prize pool to £100,000.
The format is largely the same as last season, with a few small tweaks along the way to improve the user experience. Here's everything you need to know.
How it works
The £100,000 Freeroll is a free entry tournament which runs from Gameweek 1 to Gameweek 38. It is possible to enter a new side right up until Gameweek 34, with a managers highest six gameweek totals contributing to their overall score.
You must enter a squad of 11 players which compromises at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, three midfielders and two forwards. There's a budget of 35 stars and you can select a maximum of two players per club.
Entries are unlimited so you can enter any number of lineups in any number of given gameweeks throughout the season. For entries prior to Gameweek 1, the lineups can be adjusted prior to the Gameweek 1 deadline.
Cards are locked once entered into the Freeroll. If you wish to retract an entry you can do so, at a fee of £15. (These will go into a pot for a special GW38 Freeroll tournament at the end of the season). You will no longer be eligible for any of the overall prizes.
Any fixtures that move to a date outside their original intended gameweek will be excluded from the contest. There will be no ‘double gameweeks’ for Premier League teams.
The prize pool is huge and the depth of prizes are mouth-watering. Starting off with a huge £25,000 for first place, there's payouts right up until the 100th highest finishing manager.
Add into the mix weekly prizes exceeding £20,000 it's truly an amazing array for a tournament which is absolutely free to enter.
Each manager of the week will net £250 and there's a cheeky bonus of £500 for the highest Gameweek 1 score - commit to those lineups early.
One thing to note is that players are only eligible to win of the overall top 100 prizes from their highest ranked squad come the end of the season. This will ensure 100 different managers win an overall prize.
