Managers in Fantasy Premier League have an additional motivation to do well this Gameweek as the FPL Cup will be starting in Gameweek 16.
That means that their Gameweek 15 points will determine whether they qualify for the first round of the competition.
The top-scoring 8,388,608 managers in Gameweek 15 will enter the first round of the cup for Gameweek 16.
Each qualifying team will be randomly drawn against another in the first round.
The winner - the team with the highest Gameweek score minus any transfer points - will progress to the second round and another random draw. The losers are out!
This process continues until the final round in Gameweek 38, when the two remaining teams contest the FPL Cup final.
If a cup match is drawn, then the following tie-breaks will be applied until a winner is found:
1) Most goals scored in the Gameweek
2) Fewest goals conceded in the Gameweek
3) Virtual coin toss
The prize for the winner of the FPL Cup is as follows:
- VIP hospitality at one 2023/24 Premier League match
- Includes travel and 2 nights’ accommodation
- Copy of FIFA 23
- Tablet computer
- Bluetooth speaker
- Nike manager jacket
- FPL goody bag consisting of a rucksack, t-shirt, mug, water bottle, stress ball, pen, pad and key ring
