How to play the fun live Fantasy Football game Fanslide


Sponsored by Fanslide

If you’ve ever watched a match live and wanted to have more of these players in your Fantasy Premier League (FPL) roster, Fanslide is the game for you.

Played live on unique matches, this unique new game allows you to have them all, just at different times. Created by a group of football-loving London friends, Fanslide’s “Fantasy Football” is free to play and is already a big hit with fans.

Fanslide: Don't just watch the game, PLAY IT!

How to play Fanslide

You can select three players at a time, “insert” them when you think they’re about to impact the game – whether that’s scoring a goal or winning tackles, blocking shots, etc

Time should be managed wisely, with each player having a maximum of 20 minutes. You can drop players in and out whenever you want, either based on how you read the match or to save unused time for later in the game.

You get three free slides per half, but the rest will cost two points unless it’s due to timeout. The full rules are here.

How to score points

Players earn single, double or triple points depending on where you swipe them, with live Opta data displayed on a vidiprinter to show which players are earning and losing points for their actions.

Compared to FPL, there are many other ways to gain or lose points.

So if Mohamed Salah is in the ‘x3’ box and scores a goal, say hello to 60 points! Meanwhile, three Bournemouth defenders who don’t concede in the first 20 minutes will pick up 30 clean sheet points plus whatever they earn for defensive actions.

A goalkeeper who makes three saves in the first 20 minutes without conceding will earn three points for each, plus five for the clean sheet for a total of 14.

“Fanslide adds a whole new layer of excitement when you watch football on TV. It’s immersive and interactive and as you compete against your friends and the rest of the world, you also see the game from a different perspective, noticing the players and their contributions in a new way.

“We wanted to create a better way to add excitement to football than just betting on it, and with Fanslide you can use your knowledge and reading of the game to win. If you want to deposit and bet on the outcome of your games, you can choose to do so in a safe and sustainable way, but Fanslide is and always will be a free game. – founder Joe Cocozza

Best tips

When first visiting the app, users are directed to the Fanslide Acadamy to learn more about how to play the game. It includes some tips and tricks, such as:

  • Be patient. Don’t just drag out the best players at the start.
  • Use your three free slides per half to make tactical changes.
  • Use the weaker team’s defenders early – if they last 20 minutes you’ll get a good shot and still have premium assets for later.
  • Wingers score a lot of points for winning corners and dribbles, but check what position they are allocated in the game as they may not be eligible for clean sheet points.
  • Goalkeepers can score a lot when under pressure, so don’t be afraid to use them.
  • With each team now allowed five substitutions per game, consider which players are likely to be taken off earlier. Use their 20 minutes in advance.
  • Avoid players who collect a lot of yellow cards in the ‘x3’ slot. A foul that attracts a yellow card will score -21 points.
  • Do not abandon ! A Perfect Fanslide Goal (PFG) with a hat-trick scorer and a double passer will earn you 80 points.
