The Recruitment International Fantasy Football League is back!
Sponsored by Futura Rec2Rec
Futura will provide the prizes as follows
• Overall winner at end of season wins £500 cash
• Runner-up at end of season wins £100 cash
• The next 8 places at end of season win £50 each in cash
You could topple last season's and the previous season's top prize-winner, Mike Barnard and win the £500 top prize or knock 2nd prize-winner, Alan Furley off his perch and collect £100. Even if you don't come first or second there are another 8 runners-up prizes of £50 each provided by our sponsor, FuturaRec2Rec.
Even if you turn out not to be the brilliant manager and tactician you think you are you can still join the hundreds of other recruitment industry professionals and have a superb time over the next season pitting your wits against each other in the industry's leading Fantasy Football League. It's actually run by the Premier League itself and is not only free to enter for recruitment professionals and has superb prizes but you can also get you and your company a mention every week in our newsletter that goes out to over 50,000 recruiters.
The new season is almost upon us and the Fantasy League is now open up for business.
For those of you who haven't played Fantasy League before, it's really easy. Players get points for clean sheets, goals and assists. It’s all done online and managed by the Premier League themselves so there’s no paperwork to worry about. All you do is pick your best team of 15 players (including subs) and spend less than £100m. You then just enter a code to join our mini-league and the Fantasy League site does the rest in terms of calculating the points you have accrued and where you stand in the table. If you've already got a team you just join our mini-league and use the same team. You can make transfers and even play wildcards when you realise that your team needs a complete overhaul.
Full instructions are below
We’ll publish a weekly review of the movers and shakers along with those further down the league that have just had a great week. We’ll also interview the eventual winners and profile them in the magazine at the end of the season, which will do your career no harm whatsoever.
The places are those determined by the main site and their decision is final. You are only allowed to submit one team per person. You must be working in the UK for a recruitment agency to participate. If the organisers suspect that you are not working in the UK for a recruitment agency or not complying with any other mini league rules, they reserve the right to suspend or expel you from the mini league. If points are level at the end of the season then the prizes will be fairly split in a way determined by Futura. Only those managers whose team reaches the Top 10 are eligible for prizes. To claim your prize you must actually be employed in a trading recruitment agency on the final day of the season (and be able to prove it) and you must include the name of your agency in your team name so we can verify that it's actually you we're handing over the prize money to. Prizes must be claimed with proof of employment within 14 days of the final game of the season (by emailing email@example.com ) and will be paid out shortly afterwards after successful verification checks have been concluded.
