Points are crucial to win our fantasy league, so here's how to get them and what limitations your team has
CELLCARD have agreed to sponsor The Phnom Penh Post Fantasy Football League, offering a US$20 Cellcard scratchcard and Cellcard T-shirt for the highest points scorer each week. For the most skilful manager of the season, Cellcard will award a 3G handset with Cellcard SIM and a Cellcard T-shirt. Employees of Cellcard and The Phnom Penh Post will not be eligible to win. You have until 11:30am on Saturday, August 15, to register your team in time for the first round of matches. You can still register a team after this date but you will not receive points from the previous week/s. Go to fantasy.premierleague.com and click on Not registered? Sign up. Then enter in your details, including chosen username, password, email address and personal details before providing your own team name (comical/satirical names encouraged). Once you have registered your team, you can start selecting players. Finally, when your squad is complete (and within budget) you can click on the Leagues tab on the left panel. Then click on Create/Join to reach the screen where you should enter the Post league code 112590-31633 (don’t forget the dash). Good luck and enjoy what promises to be an enthralling Barclays Premiership season.

A manager may enter one Fantasy Premier League squad; multiple squads will be deleted. Squads must consist of: two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.
You can select up to three players from any one team. If a player is transferred during the season and this transfer takes you over this limit, then you will need to go back under the limit when making your next transfers.
Each player has been given a value. The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.
From your 15-player squad, you select 11 players to form your team each Gameweek. Only starting or automatically substituted players will earn points for your team.
Your team can play in any formation providing one goalkeeper and at least three defenders and one forward are selected.
To change formation simply select your chosen 11 players on the My Team page. The computer will automatically choose your formation based on the players you have selected.
Players can only play in their designated position. For example, you can't play a defender as an attacker.
Any changes you make to your team will become active at the next deadline.
You must nominate a member of your team to be captain. This player will score double the number of points he would usually have been awarded that Gameweek.
If your captain does not play, then he will be automatically substituted in accordance with the rules at the end of the Gameweek.
If your goalkeeper plays no part in the Gameweek, then the computer will substitute him for your replacement goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.
If any of your outfield players play no part in the Gameweek, then the computer will try to substitute the inactive player for one of your replacements. This is done by replacing him with your highest priority substitute who actually played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules.
After selecting your squad you can still deal in the transfer market. Unlimited squad transfers can be made, 1 transfer can be made between each Gameweek deadline without charge. Each additional transfer made in the same gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total at the next deadline.
If you don't use your free transfer, then you'll be able to make an additional free transfer the following Gameweek. These saved transfers don't accumulate and can only be used the following Gameweek.
All transfers before the start of the season are made at no cost. For teams entering after the start of the season, no points will be deducted before their first deadline.
You can play one transfer wild card a season. All transfers made in the Gameweek your wild card is played will be without points deduction. You play your wild card when confirming transfers.
Any transfers you make will become active at the next deadline.
Any changes to your team (substitutions, transfers, captain changes, substitution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline to take effect for that set of matches. Deadline for Gameweek 1, as in the start of the season, is Saturday at 5:30pm.
Player prices vary during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player values will not change until the season starts.
If you sell a player for a higher price than you paid, then a sell-on fee of 50 percent (rounded up to the nearest 0.1 million) will be applied on the profits. For example, if you buy a player for 4.2 million and when you transfer him his value is 4.5 million then you will only receive 4.3 million.
During the season, the fantasy football players will be allocated a point score after each Barclays Premier League game based on the following system.
