The Premier League returns on Friday, 11th August and we're delighted to announce that the Eire Óg Fantasy Football league is back for another season.
We had huge interest last season and it proved a great success. The Eire Og private league will simply be renewed this season, so those in it last year will automatically be re-entered for this season. If you no longer wish to take part, you can simply remove your team from the league.
For those who haven’t played before and want to dip their toe, the first step is to register your Fantasy Football team at the following website: https://fantasy.premierleague.com/
If you haven’t played before, there is nothing to fear as detailed instructions on how to register, build your team and join our league will be emailed with receipt for payment.
Entry is €30 and can be paid at the following link via the club shop:
Aside from banter amongst members and their friends, this is also a club fundraising activity which proved very successful last season. 50% of total entry fees will go toward prizes with the remaining 50% going toward the development of our club. Prizes will therefore be announced after the closing date for entry. Similar to last season, there will be overall prizes but also monthly prizes to keep players interested throughout the season regardless of overall standing. Updated standings will be emailed monthly to all participants throughout the season.
The closing date and time for entry is 6.30pm on Friday, 11th August. Those interested in playing are advised to make payment and join the league well in advance of this deadline. Those in the league after the deadline will be cross checked against those who have made payment via the club shop.
Fantasy Football is great fun particularly when competing with friends and club mates. Feel free to spread the word to friends and family alike. All are welcome to join our league and the more the merrier to again make it a successful fundraising endeavour for our club.
We hope that whether you’re a novice or a seasoned Fantasy Football pro, you’ll consider entering and spreading the word far and wide to keep us all busy tinkering with our teams over the cold winter months.
C’mon the Townies!
