A brief history of UEL fantasy
The UEL fantasy contests organized by FootballCoin

Even more importantly, the UEL has managed to establish its own brand of competition. It’s exciting, vibrant and leaves us, the fans, guessing. These are just some of the reasons why in any format it may have, the UEL will be part of fantasy football contests in FootballCoin.
Creating your team using collectible player cards
Fantasy UEL picks and FootballCoin collectible cards
Yes, the most famous players in fantasy football are represented by paid cards. These cards can be acquired using XFC cryptocurrency, which can be won, as well as bought. Once a fantasy manager acquires any of these cards, they enter in their ownership until they may decide to sell or gift them.
The value of these players is determined using a wide array of elements, including their market value as reflected by sites such as Transfermarkt, the number of important trophies they have won, their reputation etc. Are they worth purchasing when the majority of players is free? Statistics show that in certain cases the answer is “yes”. There are some clear reasons for Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo enjoying the kind of popularity they have. Much of it has to do with their exquisite level of consistency. In other words, buying a card representing Messi and Ronaldo represents an investment since these players gather a lot of points for your teams with each new match, new competition, or new season.
Then, does creating a UEL fantasy team made up entirely of free player hinder the chances at success? Past events would suggest this is not the case at all. The truly knowledgable managers have been able to make wise choices. they were able to compete occasionally using exclusively free player cards.
For example, few fantasy managers would have opted for Andrey Lunev as their starting goalkeeper during the 2018/19 season. But, Zenit performed well in the competition stopping just shy of the Quarter-Finals. Up to that stage, Lunev was one of the best players in the competition. The Russian goalie had earned 173 points by the time his team had left the competition. Lunev was also a free player card. This means that any manager would have had the option of picking him for their team, and would have been better off for making this choice. However, only the best informed of fantasy enthusiasts knew to do this.
The same season of the Europa League confirmed the notion that the competition was open to surprises. Indeed, teams such as Chelsea and Valencia were qualified among the last eight teams in the UEL event. But, what about Slavia Prague or Eintracht Frankfurt. These clubs had also earned a place in the Quarterfinals. Their season had been all around impressive. Their players filled the list of MVPs. The element of surprise of the competition can not be ignored. It makes for an entertaining event for all, especially for the fantasy UEL managers.
