Yes, you can enter multiple teams under different accounts. Get your staff members involved!

Can I make changes to my team during the tournament?
Yes, you can make unlimited changes to your team prior to the first kickoff on Thursday, June 14. After that, you'll be given 26 transfers to use throughout the group stage. If any of these transfers are unused, they will not be carried over. Unlimited changes are again allowed between the end of the group stage and the start of the knockout stage on Saturday, June 30. You’ll then have another 20 transfers to use throughout the knockout stage.

Transfers can be made at any time and will apply from the next kick-off.

When will scores be updated?
Provisional scores will be available during the competition on the TFF Live page.
Classified player points and leaderboards will be updated after every match from Thursday, June 14, 2018 until the end of the tournament. From this date, you'll also be able to view your individual (and Private League) scores and positions online.

Is there an app available?
Yes, you can either register and arrange your team during the World Cup on a desktop or via Android or Apple iOS devices.


How To Play
Within the £50m budget, pick a team of 11 international stars to line up in one of six formations. You can change your team as much as you like during the transfer amnesty, which runs right up until the first match kicks off at 16:00 on Thursday, June 14, 2018. After that, you’ll get 26 transfers to use during the group stage, 20 more transfers to use during the knockout stage, as well as a transfer amnesty between the group stage and knockout stage.

Your chosen players score points for your team based on their performances in all World Cup matches. Points are awarded for appearances, scoring goals, creating goals and keeping clean sheets. Points are lost for yellow/ red cards and for conceding goals (see ‘Scoring Points’ for more details).

The aim of the game is to finish as high up the leaderboard as possible by scoring as many points as you can.

You’ll be able to follow your team scores in real-time within the TFF live scoring facility.

Selecting A Team
Select your team of 11 players by clicking on their names in the player list. Each player has been valued in £millions and the total value of your team must not exceed £50million.

There are no limits on the number of players you can select from any one country and you can choose any of the following six formations:4-4-2, 4-3-3, 3-5-2, 4-5-1, 3-4-3 or 5-3-2.

Click on the column headers in the player list to sort the players either by their value or country. There are also additional filters you can apply to help you make your choices.

Once you’re happy with your team, click "Submit", give it a name and continue on to registration.

Remember, you can change your players as much as you like and as often as you like right up until the first kick-off at 16:00 on Thursday, June 14, 2018.

Once you've chosen your team, if you already have a Telegraph Fantasy Games account, just enter your usual login email address and password in the boxes provided.

If you are new to Telegraph Fantasy Games, enter your email address, choose a password and fill out your personal details. To play TFF you must be aged 18 or over and be a resident of the UK, Channel Islands, or Isle of Man.

Making Transfers
You can change your team around as much as you like during the transfer amnesty, which runs up until the first kick off at 16:00 on Thursday, June 14, 2018.

You will then have 26 transfers to use during the group stage of the tournament to replace injured, suspended and under-performing players with fresh faces to keep your points tally ticking over. Any transfers not used during this period will not be carried over.

A second amnesty will then open following the completion of all group stage matches and will remain open until the start of the knockout phase at 15:00 on Saturday, June 30, 2018, meaning you can change your entire team during this period if you like.

Another 20 transfers will then be made available for you to use during the knockout stage of the tournament.

Transfers can be made between matches, so any players transferred in will start scoring from the next kick-off. In the case of delays to kick-offs, the initial scheduled kick-off time stands for the purposes of transfers.

Scoring Points
The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible during the tournament.

Your selected players will score points as follows:

All players:

Starting XI appearance (2 pts)
Substitute appearance (1 pt)
Goal scored (5 pts)
Key Contribution (3 pts)
Red card (-3 pts)
Yellow card (-1 pt)
Missed penalty (-2 pts)
Own Goal (-3 pts)
Goalkeepers only:

Penalty save (5pts)
Goalkeepers/defenders only:

Full Clean Sheet - player plays 60 mins or more (5 pts)
Part Clean Sheet - player plays fewer than 60 mins (2 pts)
The first goal conceded (0 pts)
Each additional goal conceded (-1 pt)
Points are not awarded for penalty shootouts.

Points will not be altered for decisions that are reviewed retrospectively after a match has been completed. Points will remain with the player that has been awarded positive or negative points at the end of the match. This includes, but is not limited to awarding of goals and rescinding of cards.

Clean sheet bonuses:
In order to earn a Full Clean Sheet bonus (5 pts), your player must complete at least 60 minutes of the match and his team must keep a clean sheet for the entire match (excluding penalty shoot-outs).
If a player is on the pitch for less than 60 minutes and his team keeps a clean sheet for the full match, he'll score a Part Clean Sheet bonus (2 pts).

All players still earn 2 points for starting a match and 1 point for coming on as a substitute.
So, for example, if your goalkeeper/defender starts the match, plays an hour or more, and his team finishes the match with a clean sheet - they will score 7 points.

Live Scoring
You can follow your team’s points and Private League position(s) during every match via the TFF Live match centre. Live score updates are purely to enhance your enjoyment of the game and points should be regarded as indicative only.

All in-play points are subject to overnight verification once the TFF judges have had a chance to review footage from each match.

In particular, Key Contributions will be added overnight because the live points are based on an automated data feed (provided by Opta stats). Key contributions can sometimes be awarded to two players in Telegraph Fantasy Football whereas the TFF Live data feed only awards ‘assists’ which is generally just the last player from the attacking side to touch the ball.

In other words, the points you see in TFF Live will not be the final, classified scores you’ll see the following morning throughout the rest of the game's website or app – but they’ll certainly give you a very good idea of how you’re getting on.

May the best team win!
