    Pre-word for the mods: I appreciate this isn't really the section for this thread to go in, however it would be great if it could stay in here temporarily in order to get as many people involved as possible and then once it's underway it could be moved to the world cup forum. Pretty please :)

    So I will be running a World Cup Fantasy Football League for SC members over here. We ran a league on the same site for the 2012 Euros and it was great fun for all involved.

    It starts with a silent auction where you bid for players; each player can only play for one team. You can blow all your money on a Messi or Ronaldo, then have to fill your team with cheap players from Costa Rica, or you can buy more tactically, find bargains and end up with a class team. From memory, last time round someone got Benzema on a free transfer by virtue of no one else bidding for him, so there's value to be had.

    The sign up code for the league is 46196

    The auction will be running from Monday the 2nd until (hopefully no later than) Sunday the 8th, by which time everyone should have full teams. It's completely free to enter and play, and it doesn't really take up much time, just a few minutes to bid for the players you want.

    Leave a comment if you do sign up, just so I can get an idea of the numbers and, if needed, run a second league. (y)

    Nice one Dixie, you're all added. It's starting to shape up now, 7 teams so far. Ideally we'll get at least 8 more for one full league.

    I put the code in and it bought up the league so I assume so.

    I have just tried to join the league again and it tells me that the code is invalid, so I assume I must be registered :confused:

    (Edit) I have sorted it out now, you actually have to apply to join, not just enter the promo code. :whistle:

    How does this work then? Different to the usual fantasy football setup?

    You're all in, up to 13 people now. If we get more than the 15 allowed in one league, i'll split it into two divisions of even amounts if everyone agrees thats the best course of action.

    It's different in the set up, you have to participate in an online auction to buy the players you want. Each footballer can only play for one team, so if i bought Messi no one else could.

    I've set up a mini league in The Sun World Cup dream team if anyone's interested. Usual sun rules, you can make as many changes as you want up until the start so don't worry if there are doubts/injuries that happen.
