"It's always good to see another aspect to our sport, and to know it is in a position to rival Fantasy Football. I play Fantasy League Darts every year and let Fantasy become a Reality!" Said darting legend John Lowe.

See who John has picked in his own dream darts team, Lowie's Bullies. (http://www.dartsmad.com/fantasy/fantasy_entry.aspx?teamid=12859)

The premier Fantasy League Darts (FLD) competition is bigger and better than before and back for 2012 with a 500 first prize!

Once again you can manage a squad of PDC and BDO players side by side.
It looks like the unification of darts is still some time away so DartsMad.com has unified darts for you!

Based on DartsMads exclusive Unified World Darts Ranking (UWDR) system, the 2012 FLD competition will award points to players from both sides of the divide, based on our UWDR points structure.

The FLD competition runs from May to January, culminating in the two World Championships, and taking in every UWDR ranked event in between. That’s all PDC Majors and Pro Tour events, as well as all BDO Majors and Category A, B & C events.

Simply pick a team of 10 players with a combined budget of 60 million or less.
You then earn points on your players' performances throughout the season.
Players will earn UWDR points for their finishing position in an event, plus extra match points as shown on the right.

It's just 3.50 to enter a team and the end of season cash prizes will be based on the total entry fund. So dont forget to tell your friends! More teams = Higher cash prizes! You can also play for free but remember – you won’t be eligible for the cash!
1st Prize = 500 | 2nd Prize = 100 | 3rd Prize = 50

Thanks for adding the FLD information Steve, the 2011 competition is in full swing now and entries closed a while back. However, the 2012 Fantasy League Darts will be registering very soon, and will begin in January after the worlds. Hopefully we will be offering up another big cash prize and of course a discounted entry fee for any dartsforum members who want to enter.

Chaps don't forget about this for 2012, the Dartsmad fantasy league

http://www.dartsmad.com/fantasy/fantasy_competitions.aspx

The main prizes are still to be announced but should be good amounts. Also there is a Manager of the Month prize which is a 50 free bet, and a Manager of the month runner up prize of 25 in Rileys Vouchers.

Should be fun for the new season, can you pick a winning squad with 60 million? I'm in - 'Simple Minds' is my mottley crew!

Well done gents, lets get some more entries in! More players equals more prize money. So tell all your friends, family, cat, dog, bloke next door etc etc.

Guaranteed minimum prize fund will be 500, so roughly 350, 100, 50 for the top 3 places after the 2013 Worlds, depending on signups it could be more!

And don't forget the manager of the month prizes :biggrinodf:

Of course everyone can play, but free entries will not pick up prizes.

Select your teams wisely, there are a few 'bargains' to be found. And don't rule out the BDO players.

Cheers

How long does it take for your team to appear on the list as I can't see mine - I thought it happened once you pressed the submit lol

Steve Metalman
18th February 2012, 08:09 AM
I dont know, Have you just entered today?
I think dartsmad add them manually perhaps

If you entered several days ago you will be on the list in' standings' (http://www.dartsmad.com/fanzone/login.aspx?backurl=http://www.dartsmad.com/fantasy/fantasy_standings.aspx?code=FLD2012&year=2012)

Log in with your password etc
Then its a case of finding your name and clicking on view team

18th February 2012, 08:37 AM
I only entered just before my post with the team in - I wasn't sure how long it took to appear lol.

Steve Metalman
18th February 2012, 08:41 AM
Did you enter as mc1958 or under your real name?
I had a look and couldn't see you there.

So I'm guessing its manual not automatic, when means you wont be added until dartsmad updates, which could be any sort of time, but they are quite good at keeping on top of things

mc1958
18th February 2012, 09:27 AM
It was under my real name - I'm guessing it is a manual process for this so dartsmad can check the teams are valied and payments made, etc. It's a couple of weeks until the first competition starts so I'll check again towards the end of next week. It'll add a bit more excitement to the coming season though

22nd February 2012, 10:18 AM
Carey was another that cropped up a few times lol. I decided on paying the 3.50 - my thinking was it's not a lot in the big scheme of things (not even a new set of cosmos lol), and I would be gutted if I somehow managed to end up at the top!!

Steve Metalman

Whats that, a pint and a half of beer, its not much is it
Paying to play puts a whole new slant on how you pick your team

I don't think any points have been allocated yet - only one person has got any points according to the table, and if you look at his team none of them have scored yet lol.

Results are being updated as soon as practical after events. There will inevitably be occasions where other things get in the way or results are difficult to source etc, but we try to keep it as current as possible.

I don't think the youth tour tournaments score any points - they aren't on the list as far as I can tell anyway.

As for me - not too bad in 75th spot on 1510 points. Much better than I expected!!

No the youth tournaments aren't included in 2012 FLD. However, they may feature in future FLD's, who knows!
