Swindon Town kicked off the Football League campaign in style last weekend with the latest of late comebacks to pick up three points and this weekend it is over to the most exciting league of all to kick off, The Fantasy Premier League!.

For those of you who haven’t played Fantasy League before, it’s really easy. All you need to do is pick your best team of 15 players (including subs) and spend less than £100m.

Players are then awarded points for clean sheets, goals and assists.

Everything is done online and managed by the Premier League themselves so there’s no paperwork to worry about.

You then just enter a code (2604697-608785) to join The Swindonian mini-league.

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 regularly update the movers and shakers in the league along with those of you in the league who have just had a great point scoring week and who knows come the end of the season there may just be a prize or two for the League winners.


If you already have a Fantasy Football Team?

If not:

  • Log onto http://fantasy.premierleague.com/
    and register/fill in the form.
  • You will then receive a confirmation/activation email which you must verify before you can select your team.
  • Once verified, click on the homepage (Premier League shield in the top left corner) and then select “my team”.
  • Select your squad, complete and name your team.
  • Go to the Leagues tab and select Join a League.
  • Select Private League and enter the League Code 2604697-608785. Please note that you may have to actually enter this code as sometimes copy and paste doesn’t seem to work on this.

And that’s it! Just keep on top of it to see how good a manager you really are.

Please note The Swindonian will have no access to your login data on the site and therefore your personal details are entirely confidential.




The places will be those determined by the Premier League Fantasy Football website  and their decision is final. If points are level at the end of the season, then the prizes will be fairly split in a way determined by The Swindonian.
