The following announcement clarifies what will happen with the postponement of matches in Gameweek 1 of England Fantasy, namely the Burnley vs Manchester United and Manchester City vs. Aston Villa games.
Given the expected change of schedule to a place after the end of GW1, these games will NOT be taken into consideration for Fantasy points.
We could keep the gameweek open so you could make changes to the GW1 lineup in the future, but it wouldn’t be a good thing, game-wise. This way, these games will be treated like all other games anticipated or postponed that are outside of a normal course of a round.
With this in mind, and with the number of games being impacted (2), our decision is to add 4 extra free transfers in Gameweek 2, for exclusive use in that round, so you can add players from those teams for the future.
On top of this, and as stated in the Rulebook for England Fantasy:
As a “freebie” for that weekend were you’ve got a wedding you can’t miss, the gameweek were everything went wrong or some other kind of emergency, for the total score of the England Fantasy we’ll only account for your best 34 gameweeks of 38 in play.
So, even if you already made your team and forget to change your team, you’re completely covered for the postponement of these games under “some other kind of emergency” and you will not see your final ranking being hurt by this gameweek.
Regarding Draft Leagues, players from these teams will not be scored, so take that into consideration for Gameweek 1, but have no doubts about who and when to draft to your squad just because of results in a Gameweek.
Just as you should take this opportunity to make the best possible team for GW1, while preparing for 6 free transfers in GW2 and a possible revamp of your team, if needed, we take the opportunity to express our rejoice for the feedback we’ve received in the meantime regarding this postponement, with that feedback being along the lines for what we had already planned to do. Our commitment has always been to make RealFevr the best Fantasy platform in the Universe and together we can go far.
Now that you know what will happen on Gameweek 1, start thinking about what you want to do with your team.
