This weekend millions of Fantasy Premier League managers worldwide are planning for a last boost in their mini-leagues for the final Gameweek of the 2020/21 season.

But once the Gameweek 38 bonus points have been added after Sunday's matches, how is the winner decided if more than one manager has the same points total at the top of a mini-league?

The FPL rules state: "In the event of a tie between teams, the team who has made the least amount of transfers will be positioned higher.

"Any transfers made using a Wildcard or Free Hit will not count towards total transfers made.”

Shared glory

But who will finish first if managers have made the same number of transfers? What happens then?

Simply, managers with the same number of points and transfers made will be tied at the top.

One manager will appear above another in the table but both, or more, will be ranked first.

If a Fantasy Premier League prize is at stake, it will go to the manager who was first to register their team, or with the lower entry ID.

What about mini-leagues? That's up to the league participants to decide if they wish to allow just one winner and how to determine it.
