Gameweek 17 has taken on extra relevance for more than four million Fantasy Premier League managers around the world as it marks the first round of this season's FPL Cup.

The draw has taken place for the largest FPL Cup ever. In the hat were 4,194,304 teams who posted the highest scores in Gameweek 16 to make it past the qualifying round.

On the app, first make sure you have the latest version downloaded.

Then scroll down the main Fantasy menu and your cup opponent will appear beneath your mini-leagues if you have qualified. 

On the Fantasy site, go to the "My Team" or "Points" tabs and, if you are in the cup, you should see your opponent under your mini-leagues.

What's next?

A random draw has pitched teams against one another to do battle head-to-head in Gameweek 17's fixtures.

The winner of the head-to-head will be the team with the higher Gameweek score minus any transfer points spent.

If a cup match is drawn, the following tie-breaks will be applied until a winner is found:

- Most goals by the teams' players scored in the Gameweek
- Fewest goals conceded by the teams; players in the Gameweek
- Virtual coin toss

The winner will progress to the next round and another random draw will take place.

This process continues until the final Gameweek when the two remaining teams contest the cup final.

- Tablet computer
