The FFScout Head-to-Head Leagues are again for a fourth season. Our earlier winners are Craig Johnson (19/20), Ville Tuominen (20/21) and naturally the reigning champion Martin Stubbs (21/22) who snatched the name at the final day of the season.
Both Martin and Craig will stay in League 1 and can try to transform two-time champions. Meanwhile, the 2020/21 winner Ville completed sixteenth and is subsequently relegated to League 2. He joins the 1936/37 Manchester City group in turning into champions three hundred and sixty five days best to be relegated the next season.
As in line with earlier seasons, we’re the use of an access league on FPL to collate all of the entries and also you will have to be on this league via the Gameweek 1 closing date to participate. THE LEAGUE CODE IS: vhuv6z
Those that entered and remained in final season’s access league all over final season will have to be robotically entered however please do take a look at despite the fact that, the league is known as “FFS H2H League – Entry (vhuv6z)”. Anyone new to this pageant or those who left the access league (it used to be best used to assemble all of the entries in a single position) mid-season will have to input the code above to enroll.
We lately have over 5,000 entries and I’m hopeful this 12 months’s event would be the largest but after year-on-year enlargement.
2019/2020 Season – 5,828 entries
2020/2021 Season – 8,316 entries
2021/2022 Season – 8,383 entries
After the Gameweek 1 closing date has handed, we’ll be running arduous to calculate all of the promotion and relegations and developing the Divisions and fixtures accordingly. The purpose is to have all of it survive web site for Gameweek 2, however I will have to indicate that everybody will nonetheless have a Gameweek 1 fixture – you simply received’t know who you might have performed till after the development.
For those who weren’t acutely aware of those leagues or are new to FFScout a pyramid construction is used as proven under;
League 1 – 1 Division
League 2 – 2 Divisions
League 3 – 4 Divisions
League 4 – 8 Divisions
League 5 – 16 Divisions
League 6 – 32 Divisions
League 7 – 64 Divisions
League 8 – 128 Divisions
League 9 – 256 Divisions (best 165 Divisions used 2021/22)
There are 20 groups in each and every department and groups play each and every different two times over the process the season. All the leagues and fixtures are revealed at the FFScout web site and a hyperlink shall be created sooner or later. The league tables are up to date are living because the Gameweek progresses. At the tip of the 12 months, 5 groups shall be promoted from each and every department to a department within the league above. And 10 groups shall be relegated from each and every department to a department within the league under.
For the primary season, groups had been taken care of in keeping with their HoF rank, the best-ranked managers getting in League 1 and so forth. The Divisions are all weighted similarly, so for those who’re in League 4 Division 1 you’re on the similar degree as all of the different Divisions inside of League 4.
The similar construction shall be used for the 2022/23 season on the other hand the precise main points depends on the general collection of entries. Should we now have extra folks taking part in than final 12 months we might require a tenth league. This does imply that some groups might be relegated from League 9 however that may best be made up our minds as soon as we now have the general access numbers.
Of route, for the 2022/23 season groups are actually positioned relying on final season’s performances of their respective Divisions. Five groups would had been promoted, 5 groups will stay in the similar League and the rest 10 shall be relegated down a League. Any new entries, that didn’t play final 12 months, shall be put into the decrease Leagues and their HoF rank shall be used to resolve the place precisely they are going to be positioned.
An extra article shall be revealed when we now have the precise access numbers and alternatively when the fixtures and tables are generated. Just a handy guide a rough shout-out once more to Geoff, Mat, TopMarx and Red Lightning for his or her arduous paintings in the back of the scenes. Red Lightning used to be in particular useful to me together with his Hot Topic group updates while I went AWOL (paintings and circle of relatives commitments took over).
Now that issues have settled down for me in my view, I’m expecting posting extra articles all over the season, much more so now that I’ll be helped via Lord. from the FFScout group.
