Fantasy soccer gives fans around the globe a chance to show that they have as much tactical know-how for the game and the Premier League as the likes of Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho, Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger, Manchester United’s Louis van Gaal, Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini, and the 16 other Premier League managers.

And World Soccer Shop is giving all those Fantasy Managers a chance to prove it to the world and earn gift cards to World Soccer Shop in the process.

Check out what is on the line:

$50 gift card for most amount of points that week
$100 gift card Prize for winning first half of season
$500 gift card prize for winning the overall season

But before you get too far into thinking about all the cool it will be to be the 1st WSS Fantasy Manager of the Year and all the great gear you are going to purchase, YOU HAVE TO SIGN UP!

The details are simple.

And you don’t have to be a seasoned fantasy pro to enter.  Visit ESPN’s Premier Fantasy and sign-up.  Once you are logged in:

1) Join the Group Name: World Soccer Shop

2) Enter User name: Twitter or Instagram Handle ending with “_TW” or “_IG” respectively. i.e. @twitterhandle_TW

That’s the easy part.  Now you have to showcase your skills and sadly you don’t have Roman Abramovich or the Abu Dhabi United Group bankroll to call upon.  The challenge is to select a 15 player roster (2 goalkeepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders, and 3 strikers) with a $100 million budget.  Each week you select your starting XI, name a captain (captain’s score double points), and let them go to work.

It really is easier than what Premier League managers have to deal with as the transfer window does not slam shut on your club on September 1.  During the 1st half of the season, team managers have 30 transfers so if a player is under performing send him packing.  But be careful as players form will increase or decrease their value.

And if you have more questions here is a detailed explanation of How to Play and the Game Rules.

Good luck and get results and the club chairman won’t be coming to your office to sack you.
