Hello and welcome to the Dream Football League!
Based on a really good idea by the people of Qatar, the Dream Football League brings together the very best of world football for a big tournament as played out on FIFA 14 for the X-Box 360. Each of the 16 teams will be managed by one of you and consist of the best players from across the planet.
After building your teams, deciding on tactics and starting line-ups, the games will be played out on FIFA 14 to decide the ultimate champions. Teams will be split into groups, face each other and try to claim a place in the knockout stages. Sadly, we can’t offer the financial rewards of the “real” Dream Football League.
How to buy your team
Each team will be given 200 million Dream dollars to use to buy their squad. It will all be done using a blind auction.
Each “day” will require managers to submit a list of players they’d like to buy along with how much they are willing to spend. The highest bidder on each player wins. The days will continue until each squad has a full complement of 23 players.
I’ll explain more on that at a later date.
For now, I just need you to reply with your name, your Twitter handle and the club side you would like to manage (a list of teams in FIFA 14 is easily found on the internet). In keeping with the idea of the Dream Football League, if you could pick prestigious teams that’d be swell.
