    Euro 2016 - Fantrax-Style 7-a-Side Fantasy League: Discussion Thread



    Euro 2016 7-a-side!








    1. Format:


    Spoiler:

    The Qualification Scramble:


    The first round of competition (which will include the entire Group Stage of the Euros) is the Qualification Scramble.


    Every team will compete for a place in the knockout stages, your cumulative score for the entire round will be added up to create a final league table, in which 8 teams will progress and the bottom 3 will be eliminated.


    The Knockout Rounds:


    Self explanatory enough, the 8 that progress from the Qualification Scramble will face each other in head-to-head match-ups.


    The first Knockout round will be 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, and 4v5. After that, the draw will be done through a simulation tool.


    For purposes of the competition actually working, the Round of 16 and the Quarter-Finals will both fall under Knockout match 1.



    2. Selecting your Squad:


    Spoiler:

    We are going to run a draft, much the same as the Fantrax draft. This basically means that we will have a dedicated thread where people take it in turns to pick players until you have all selected a team of 7.


    (Please, when signing up, be aware that you will have to be online regularly enough to complete a draft over the course of a few days/week/however long it takes. I don’t want to introduce time limits to rush people but that will be at my discretion if it gets ridiculous. In the event that I have to auto-pick somebody, I will be selecting the first available player based purely on alphabetical order of those available.)


    You must draft 1 Goalkeeper, and 6 outfield players that form an eligible formation.


    Acceptable Formations:


    1 Goalkeeper - 2 Defenders - 2 Midfielders - 2 Strikers
    1 Goalkeeper - 2 Defenders - 3 Midfielders - 1 Striker
    1 Goalkeeper - 3 Defenders - 2 Midfielders - 1 Striker
    1 Goalkeeper - 1 Defender – 3 Midfielders – 2 Strikers


    (If you are unsure of what position certain players are categorised as, please consult the official UEFA Euro 2016 Website, as they have a list of squads.)


    3. Managing your team


    Spoiler:

    After each round of games you can make 1 transfer, that must be submitted to the transfer thread at least 2 hours before the kick-off of the first game of the next round. When you drop a player, they will instantly become available to everybody in the league. If a Team is eliminated from the competition, their players are then dead.


    For example, if I get eliminated with Ronaldo in my team, Ronaldo is then completely off the table for the rest of the tournament.


    The rounds are split as follows:


    1. Qualification Scramble
    2. Knockout Match 1 (Round of 16 and Quarters)
    3. Knockout Match 2 (Semi-Finals)
    4. Knockout Match 3 (Final)



    4. Scoring


    Spoiler:

    Playing up to 60 minutes – 1 Point
    Playing 60 minutes or more – 2 Points
    Goal Scored (Defender or Goalkeeper) – 6 Points
    Goal Scored (Midfielder) – 5 Points
    Goal Scored (Forward) – 4 Points
    Assist (All) – 3 Points.
    Clean Sheet (Defender or Goalkeeper) – 4 Points
    Clean Sheet (Midfielder) – 1 Point
    Penalty Save – 5 Points
    Penalty Miss - -2 Points
    Yellow Card - -1
    Red Card - -3
    Own Goal - -2



    (I am off uni and work for the entirety of the tournament, so I am going to score it myself, no external website. Don’t worry, I am good at maths.)


    Also, if you have any questions or spot any obvious flaws then please do tell me! I am really hoping this is a success and apologise if anything goes wrong, but hopefully I have sorted out a format that should work, and be a nice variety from the regular Fantrax competition.

    Looking at the groups Ronaldo is the smart first pick but how far Portugal will get after that is questionable.

    Just food for thought, I'm sure Nash is travelling to China in the next couple of days so he might delay things if he doesn't send you a list.

    Damn, sucks I missed this. I actually would have participated. I love fantasy drafts.

    I like Lukaku but 3 overall seems way early for him, no?

    I agree with you, I'd have probably waited till early Round 2 for Bukkaku

    Uefa.com > Menu > Teams > Belgium > Squad

    Hazard is a Midfielder, Belgium are probs the worst example as they have Dembele as a forward. But apart from them it looks pretty fair...

    Also, I did have it as a direct link in the explanation but for some reason it wouldn't let me use spoiler tags if there was a link included.
