2006 FIFA World Cup Fantasy

2006 FIFA World Cup Fantasy
Pit your wits against friends, work colleagues or leading celebrities by playing the McDonald's®/FIFA World Cup™ Official Fantasy Game. Register to play on 18 May.
This is in partnership with Yahoo! and will require a Yahoo! account to play.

Looks like you pick a squad of 23, a formation, and a captain (double points) and then set your line-up...
You will be able to chop and change your lineup as many times as you like before each match but once a player is in action, he cannot be substituted for another.
We'll have to see how that will work in practice.

But good to know that we'll have at least one game to play this summer.

Would anyone be interested in a "Fantasy EPL" private group?

  4. Could it be time for Cute Guys Team 2: X-Treme World Cup Edition? Yes, yes it could. (On the other hand... a fantasy team without Ronaldinho would be tough.)

    After the rubbish performance from Yahoo this season, why don't we switch to Amazon.co.uk 's free fantasy world cup game? I wish to vote with my feet, but also like the info from this blog!

  7. Amazon's game (and I can't believe they are running one) is a limited-trade league. 12 for the whole tourney! That's a real limit on the fun, as far as I'm concerned.

    And as frustrating as Yahoo! was at times, they provided a great game at no cost and got the points and the matches right eventually.

    This one is similiar to the one that yahoo ran for Euro 2004 which is a pretty good free fantasy game.
