Premier League make huge change which will impact Fantasy Football next season

Premier League make huge change which will impact Fantasy Football next season

The 24/25 Premier League season will begin on August 16.

The 24/25 Premier League season will see a major rule change that could impact Fantasy Football managers across the country.

On Tuesday morning, the fixtures for the upcoming season were released to the public.

Defending champions Manchester City will begin with an away trip to Chelsea, Manchester United kick off the new season against Fulham at Old Trafford and Liverpool will travel to Portman Road to take on newly promoted Ipswich Town.

It has also been reported that Premier League teams will now have to unveil their teams 75 minutes ahead of kick-off.

Over the years, the tradition has been that the starting eleven and the substitutes are announced 60 minutes before the start of the match.

This could have an impact on Fantasy Football managers as they will now have less time to decide on their teams ahead of a match weekend.

It is believed that the decision came so that the Premier League falls in line with UEFA competitions.


Currently, the Premier League regulations state: “A representative of each participating Club shall submit a team sheet by such method as approved by the Board containing the following particulars: L.23.1. the shirt numbers and names of its Players (including substitute Players) who are to take part in that League Match; L.23.2. the colour of the Strip to be worn by its Players, including the goalkeeper; and L.23.3. the names and job titles of up to seven Officials who will occupy the trainer’s bench during that League Match. L.24.

“At least 60 minutes before the time fixed for the kick-off of a League Match, the Manager or a senior member of the coaching staff listed in Rule L.23.3 of each participating Club shall attend a briefing with the referee.”

The above rule is expected to be updated ahead of the new season.
