First off, you need to register with bundesliga.com. This is done either through the login button in the top-right corner, or by clicking on the "Register Now" on the right of the page on fantasy.bundesliga.com. Next, enter your e-mail address and choose a password. You then get an email with a link that will allow you to confirm your registration. Once that is done, you can immediately log in. Both the application and the participation in the Official Fantasy Bundesliga are free.
To participate, you must now choose your favourite club and a name for your team. This means you are automatically entered into your club's league and play against other fans of your club. In addition, you can compete with friends and colleagues in your own league. Under "My Promotions" you can create or join leagues. Prizes are, however, only awarded for standings in the official leagues and not for positions in mini-leagues.
Perfect, you have chosen your club and your league. Now you have to build your team with 15 players. From this you can filter your starting line-up for every match. Each player earns points that contribute to your league standing. And the best part: If you are not satisfied with your team and want to look for a better solution, you can make transfers between matchdays in the transfer window.
You have a budget of 150 million to assemble your team: two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards. A player's position is set at the start of the game. Use the left panel to find your favourite players or select from the alphabetical list. The filter can also assist in your team's selection process.
To add a player, click the "+". To sell a player, click the "x" on the player card. You can also complete your team automatically. Then the missing players will be selected, according to your budget, at random.
With your selections ready, click on the "confirm transfers." You must then select 11 players for your starting line-up. Players can only be used in their normal position. A midfielder can not therefore be placed in defence or attack.
bundesliga.com looks forward to your team! Have fun!
