It’s that time of year again when would-be managers all over the world battle it out for the chance to be named Fantasy Premier League (FPL) West Ham United Official League champion!
FPL is a true test of your managerial skills, requiring you to recruit players within a set budget, transfer in new players before they become stars and drop them before they lose form.
With the added complications of a limit of three players from any single Premier League club, and deciding when to use your valuable Bench Boost, Free Hit, Triple Captain and Wildcard chips, topping the table is a challenge like no other.
Thousands of you took on the challenge last season, with the top-scoring FPL managers each month winning Claret and Blue prizes, while supporter Darren Valet and his team Crockerdile Hunter was our overall 2021/22 winner.

The deadline for Gameweek One registration, and hence your chance to gain points from the start of the 2022/23 campaign, is at 6.30pm on Friday 5 August!
On whufc.com and in each issue of the Official Programme this season, we’ll be analysing players’ performances within our mini-league – who are the movers, who are the shakers, and who are the players who might want to up their game!
Of course, the world is divided into two kinds of FPL players: those devoutly dedicated to fine-tuning their teams and systems week-by-week to optimise a point output to value ratio… and those who don’t check them after the third week.
So, to help you keep on top of tweaking your teams for the months ahead, we’ll delve into tactical tips, FPL opinions and the players in Claret and Blue who we reckon are the ones to watch each matchweek.
If you’ve never played FPL before, getting started couldn’t be simpler: the Premier League’s beginners’ guide is the perfect resource for you.
