Welcome to an exciting summer of Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

Sky Sports Fantasy Football gives you the opportunity to step into international football management as you try to guide your team of stars to European glory and win some great prizes along the way.

This is the ultimate test of your footballing knowledge and tactical brain – you’re the boss; you choose the formation, you select the team and you make the tactical changes that sort out the champions from the pretenders.

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible. Your team will score points for you based on their real-life performances in Euro 2012 matches with points being scored for goals, assists, clean sheets and penalty saves. Beware of dirty players, you’ll lose points for red and yellow cards and also for conceding goals. Use transfers to axe under performers, injured or suspended players and make your star man your captain for double points.

There are plenty of prizes up for grabs including a fantastic first prize of £5,000! With the overall Runner Up winning £2,000 and the third placed Manager winning £1,000. Other prizes include £500 winner of the group phase and £500 to the winner of the knockout phase. You can also compete against your friends, family and colleagues in Private Leagues and take some cash off your mates with a wager in a Private League+.
