For the past few weeks I’ve had a lot of people ask me: HEY MENNO ARE YOU DOING A CARTY FREE WORLD CUP FANTASY LEAGUE? And I’d say SHUT UP I’M WRITING ABOUT CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN’S BABY and you were all LOL SORRY and I was all S’AWRIGHT.

And then I’d forget to set it up.

No more! I’m happy to announce that I have set up a private league for Carty Free readers at FIFA.com that you are free to join! You should probably do this before the World Cup kicks off on Thursday.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Click on the link above to join the league, and register either with an email, Facebook, or Google. You can also join the league by creating a team first and using code 4RWLS9GE.
  2. Choose your team. You have a €100m budget to select players. You need to buy 2 keepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders, and 3 forwards.
  3. Pick a formation and assign players. You get points after each round of games depending on how your players performed.
  4. ???
  5. PROFIT

There’s no prize or anything for winning the league (though there are prizes from FIFA.com and McDonald’s for doing REALLY well) but you can earn summer bragging rights.

And because I’m a blog manager who is both terrible at fantasy soccer and doesn’t mind having my choices made fun of, I’ll even post a screenshot of my team, which will undoubtedly implode in a spectacular fashion once the games actually kick off.

I like this team. It’s probably going to really suck.

So, come on in! Join the league, and let’s have some fantasy fun this summer.
