Have you ever felt you've had just about enough of that same tired old format of Fantasy Football? You know - the one where you get allocated an arbitrary sum of money to select a squad of players, only to discover that your keeper is suffering from Scottish Goalkeeper Syndrome, your central defender has fallen out with his manager and been loaned out to a Swedish second division team, your midfield general is a regular victim of squad rotation to keep him fit for European games and your star striker's out for six weeks with split ends?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above then perhaps you've come to the right place!
Based on the results in the English Premier League, WAFFL Classic runs for the duration of the English Premier League season and features multiple individual leagues each of which consists of twenty teams. Within each league, every team plays each other on a home and away basis.
The end result is, hopefully, a fresh and unique look to Fantasy Football - one where you don't necessarily need to devote your entire leisure time to mulling over endless statistics, and one where (hopefully) almost every Premier League fixture takes on a new significance.
For more details please see the rules section.
The WAFFL season kicks off on the same date as the English Premier League - which for the 2022 season means Friday 5th August - and runs the full course of the English League season.
The closing date for WAFFL entries for the 2022 season will be midday UK time on Wednesday 3rd August and entry for the season is absolutely free. The downside is that there are no prizes up for grabs for the winners other than the pure satisfaction that comes from proving your superiority over 19 of your peers!
