Welcome to Sutton CC’s 2024 ‘Fantasy Cricket League’!

The competition is NOW OPEN to enter. 

Have you ever participated in Fantasy Leagues organised by national newspapers? If so, you’ll be familiar with the concept. However, we’ve added an exciting twist to it. Instead of relying on well-known players like Root, Stokes, Foakes, Smith, and others to earn points, our version allows you to choose members from Sutton CC. The success or failure of your team will depend on how these players perform throughout the season.

This league is not only a great conversation starter after each game, but it’s also a fantastic way to stay updated on the achievements of all the men’s senior teams. Simply select 11 players for your team, pick a captain, and watch as your team earns points by scoring runs, taking wickets, and more!

If you’re a Sutton CC player who isn’t currently listed on our Fantasy League website, please contact Mike Woods via email: here. He’ll make sure to add you to the competition’s database.

This season’s ‘SCC Fantasy Cricket League’ will not only raise funds to support more social events during the 2024 season but also provide prizes (to be announced) for the managers of the top 3 final places in the Fantasy League.

The format is straightforward:

  • Entry is £10 a team and you can register for more teams if you wish, (unique email addresses required for each team;) and you can conveniently pay online through our Fantasy League website.
  • Points are scored in Saturday league games only.
  • Pick your eleven players including a captain, within a £55m budget.
  • Match statistics are automatically updated via Play-Cricket.
  • Player values increase or decrease as the season progresses, determined by performance.

The competition is NOW OPEN to enter. All the playing rules, and your entry form, can be found at the club’s Fantasy League website HERE.

Local’ rules:

  • Managers may enter a team at any point during the season, although to score points for the first league game week, teams must be submitted before the ‘Season Start’ date (11th May 2024.) Thereafter, entries will start scoring points from the game week after they were entered, and points will not be backdated.

  • Bribing Captains is strictly not allowed!
