FPL Dugout Champions League Qualifying begins

Well it seems you have about a 1 in 84 chance of winning the FPL Dugout Champions League … well that is only the case of course if you are one of the 84 people who entered!

Here are the details. GWs 23 and 24 are qualifiers.  The aim is to weed out the weak so that the group stages are as strong as possible.  For this to happen this year we are using the following format:

16 byes have been granted to the group stages, and as with previous years these byes have been granted on great overall performances in previous competitions, or indeed winning them.  The 16 names will be released very soon!

For the other 68 teams it means you have to play in the qualifying rounds.  Round one is a straight shoot out.  Top 32 scores from week 23 will progress into the GW 24 qualifying round.  In this round it will see those 32 teams matched in 1 on 1 head to heads with the winners from each of those ties joining the 16 teams who have already secured their spot in the group stages.

Further details of all the teams, those who have a bye and such will be released in the coming days, sorry about the delay.

Thank you all for entering, and let the competition begin!
