in #sbcfantasy3 years ago (edited)

A most awaited sporting event: Fifa World Cup is just 6 days away as I write this post. And it was after a long wait, McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy has been launched. Make your WorldFantasy Team now, and join "SBC Fantasy" league today.

The World Cup is the most celebrated sporting event, and World Cup fantasy adds more fun to it. If you have previously played any of World Cup, Euro Cup, FPL, etc, you must be familiar with how it works. Even if you are a beginner, it's very easy, and you will learn very quickly. All you need is a passion towards football. I will review briefly how you can make a team. To know more in details, please check in official page.

Team Selection:

Get ready for your team selection. You need to have 15 players on your team: 2 goalkeepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders and 3 forwards. You can only have 3 players from a single national team.


For each round, your team will have 11 players to start with 1 goalkeeper, 4 bench player(including 1 GK), and a captain whose points will be doubled.

Following are the valid formation for playing 11.


Breakdown by position

PositionNo of players in 15No of Players in Playing 11
Defender5minimum 3 to max 5
Midfielder5minimum 3 to max 5
Striker3minimum 1 to max 3


You will start with an initial budget of €100 million. For knockout stages or after round of 16, the budget will increase to €105 million.

Player Pricing

The players are priced based on their position, and their expected performance. The player price won't change during the group stages but will change before the knock out stage.


There are 2 kinds of substitution: Manager substitution, and automatic substitution.

  1. Manager substitution:
    Before the round is over, and after matches for a day is played, you can make substitute your player (Unless sent off) in playing 11 with a bench player who is yet to play. Also, you can change your captain(Unless sent off) with a player who hasn't played. An unlimited number of manager substitution can be made.

  2. Automatic substitution:
    If you haven't made any "Manager Substitution/ Captain change", automatic substitutions will take place at the end of the Round. A nonplaying player in your playing 11 will be substituted with a player from the bench, while captain with vice-captain.


Following is the breakdown of the number of transfers you can make in different rounds. You will be deducted 4 points for each additional transfer than below. The final includes the final and the third-place match.

RoundNumber of transfer
Before group stageUnlimited
group stage1 Per Round
Between-group stage and Round of 16Unlimited
Before Quarter-finals3
Before semi-finals5
Before finals5


If you play Fantasy Premier League(FPL), you might be aware of different chips that were introduced a couple seasons ago, and these chips are a game changer if you use it wisely. McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy includes following chips excluding wildcard.

  1. Maximum Captain: The highest scoring player from your final XI becomes the captain
  2. Bench Boost: You get the points for all 15 players, not just your starting XI


There are different ways, players in your team will score for your fantasy team. It is pretty same as FPL.

Playing in a game(less than 60 mins)1
Playing at least 60 minutes in a game2
Goal scored by a GK or defender6
Goal scored by a Mid5
Goal scored by a Striker4
For each assist3
Cleansheet-Goalkepper (must play at least 60 minutes)4

It looks like there are now 55 participants on the fifa website. But I only see 48 comments for this post. Did not everyone wrote a comment with their name? Or is there another post?

How can I become a white list member?

Yeah there are some people who joined but didn't comment. Those user who didn't comment won't be eligible for the rewards.

visit the discord channel: of SBC, and if you post about sports related post, you will be whitelisted.

Good luck with the contest.

I thought SBC was about Steem betting community?

Anyways in both cases it is kind of an issue because I barely write any posts about these subjects. I do follow at least one of the SBC members.

It is. But lets say that we don't have a real hard requirement!
But currently we do take a look at past blog postings to see, if the blog is at least sports related! We did have to many abusers in the past weeks.

Thanks for stopping by, :)

Yes, as @fullcoverbetting explained, you need to have passion and should post sports related stuff in your blog to be the member of SBC.

Submitted! My team name is "AutInf_Team"

Cheers @fullcoverbetting, and I believe you gave your team name in another post, and I have noted it.
Thank you and good luck to you too.

Hey there. I saw the link in acidyo's post, so I clicked to join as well. My team name is either Wassup or WassupSM - when I created my team, it said Wassup was taken, but now it shows Wassup as my team name, so I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm in there.
