I’m a regular player of the premier league’s fantasy premier league, and last season I decided to run a charity league to raise some funds.
This years it’s back and bigger!
For those of who are not familiar with FPL, you get an imaginary £100m to buy 15 players (don’t worry Jack Grealish is only £8m). Each week, players get points for things like scoring goals, creating assists, clean sheets etc. The more points you get the better.
This year, 30% of the funds raised will go to the top 5 at the end of the season. But there’s even more prizes to be won. Each month there is a manager of the month award sponsored by these lovely Leicestershire based businesses.
As the headline sponsor, Steven Mather Solicitor is donating a meal for two with drinks at John’s House – Leicestershire’s best and only Michelin started restaurant.
How to enter
It’s easy to enter:
- If you’ve not already created a team, do so at http://fantasy.premierleague.com
- Donate £25 to my charity trek – y9u can do that by contacting me for bank details or paying using the GoFundMe page here
- Once you’ve paid, I’ll send you the link and code to join the league
Which charities benefit?
70% of all entry fees goes to my Sahara Trek Charities. (30% is the cash prize fund. All monthly prizes and other prizes are sponsored by local businesses).
I know on Twitter people can be dubious about paid for charity leagues, but rest assured as a local solicitor my reputation for trust and integrity is more important so all funds will go to the charity.
