A new football season is here again and all most people are talking about is the Fantasy Premier League…
And you are wondering why you also need to join your friends or colleagues to play.
Don’t worry, we gotcha!
Here are 5 reasons why you should join the Fantasy Premier League:
Broaden Your Knowledge In Football
Playing FPL automatically makes you a manager. You select your own players and manage your own team for the whole season. Since you want your team do well so you can accumulate more points to top your respective leagues, you are always on the lookout for players who are doing well and how you can fix them in your team. Trust us before you finish playing FPL in a season, you will have knowledge of most of the players and their positions.
Best Way To Keep In Touch With Friends And Make New Ones
FPL is the best way to keep in touch with your friends and probably make new ones. Because points are accumulated every week, there’s always something to talk about with your friends. Your WhatsApp group will never be boring cos there will always be someone in the group will brag of how well he is doing or how he will conquer the league. There will always be a lot of fun to have by just playing FPL.
Improves Your Risk-Taking Abilities
Being an FPL manager means you have to take a lot of risks because you don’t know what the outcome of a game week might be. You have to take risks as to which players to select for a game week and hope that they do well, and score more points for you. This, however, helps you improve your risk-taking abilities.
Makes You Think Like Real-life Football Managers
As an FPL manager, you are like any other real-life football manager like Mourinho, Guardiola or Klopp, because you have a team that you have built yourself and you make some important decisions like who the captain should be and how your starting 11 should look like. Most of the big decisions that these big club managers take, you somehow take similar decisions too.
You Get To Win Some Great Prizes
There are a lot of prizes to be won just by playing FPL. There are weekly prizes, monthly prizes and overall prizes at the end of the season.
These are some of the prizes the overall winner of the last year’s FPL got:
