The 2011/12 Premiership season gets underway tomorrow.
I have to say that I’m finding it hard to get an interest this season.
My English team from when I was about 6 years old, West Ham, played terrible last time and got deservedly relegated. My other bright lights from last season, Blackpool, have also gone. What am I meant to do now??!
Since my other English loves, AFC Wimbledon, are still a few years away from the cash cow, it’s hard to focus on anything but League Two and the Championship.
None of the Premiership’s promoted teams really do it for me, although I will find myself cheering on Swansea City. Celtic brethren and all that.
All that said, it hasn’t stopped us running our annual AFTN Premiership Fantasy Football League!
It helps keep my interest and watching, and for those of you whose teams are playing in the Premiership and for those of you who just love it, it’s an added bonus and a lot of fun.
We’ve gone with the official game this year, so as to harvest our readers from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.
Everyone is welcome to take part, no matter what team you support. In fact, the more the merrier. So tell everyone you know, that AFTN is the place to go.
You can sign up any time, although we will close our private league off to new entrants by the end of August. To get off to the best possible start, make sure your team is entered before the first game kicks off tomorrow.
You have £115 million to spend and a squad of 15 to assemble, so get cracking!
You can sign up at http://fantasy.premierleague.com.
Once you’ve picked your team, you need to enter the AFTN Private League. The code for that is 1010555-240491.
We’ll hopefully come up with a prize for the winner at the end of the season, and will post regular updates on the AFTN Forum.
