Mini Leagues & Community Competitions – Gameweek 29

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions round-up after GW29, another high scoring Double Gameweek. Many chips were played, the most popular choice being to Triple Captain Mo Salah, but the highest scoring teams were those that played their Bench Boost instead. Sometimes it pays to be different!

We report on the new FFS Members Cup, the two main FFScout Leagues, the Mods & Cons and FFS Family mini-leagues, Last Man Standing, the Head-to-Head Leagues and a selection of other community mini-leagues.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

Gameweek 30 will be the qualifying round for this season’s second FFS Members Cup. Only teams that had been registered in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Gameweek 1 will be eligible, and entries must be in by 18:30 GMT on Friday 18 March. The first-round draw will be made after Gameweek 30 ends.

Previous winners who are still Premium Members (Waltzingmatildas, Fuzzy Dunlop, Kippax Kickers Acquafresca, Trigg Ola Svanheld, Malaikat Jahad, rrcmc, Jay #, Pep Pig, Mohd Rodzi and Scrumper) will have to enter with the same usernames in order to claim their byes into the first round, which will take place in Gameweek 31.
