This weekend marks a return to action for the world's most popular soccer league -- no not the USL, yet anyway! -- as the English Premier League kicks off its 2017/18 campaign.
With the Premier League's return, we are also treated to the return of the league's wildly popular online fantasy game. Each year, millions of fans attempt construct and maintain their own fantasy teams from the wealth of Premier League talent with a budget of £100 million and compete against one another in thousands of individual leagues.
And this year, FC Cincinnati are hosting a league of our own in which our supporters can compete! Not only will you have a chance to be crowned the finest Fantasy EPL player in the FCC fan ranks, you'll also have a chance to win monthly and season long prizes!
We'll be passing out great prizes from Shop FC Cincinnati and our sponsors to the top monthly points earners throughout the course of the 17/18 Premier League season. And at the end of the campaign, whoever sits atop of the season-long table in May will also be rewarded with customized versions of our new 2018 home and away kits!
But with the Premier League resuming action this coming Friday afternoon, you have until 1:45pm that day to create your team and join the league to get in on the action!
To get started, head to fantasy.premierleague.com, create an account if you don't already have one and select your team from the players available and the budget you have at your disposal. Once that's done, you can either join our league by entering code "2226865-546302" in the Leagues tab, or by clicking the link below.
Even if you don't enter in time to be included in the season-long competition, you can still enter later to have a shot at the monthly prizes! Winners each month will be announced on social media.
Best of luck!
